Hi awesome people who are reading this blog! I always and really appreciate that you read "ARI? OR ALI?". It's night in Tokyo and getting colder. When I went out, I thought "Oh man, am I in Hokkaido (Where is North of Japan)?"
Anyway, I totally forgot to lett you know one thing. Have you seen my video "SUCK? OR NOT?"? What do you think of it? If you have't watched it,........yeah, you know what I'm going to say next. Click here and I bet you laugh :P

While I was editing the video, I thought "Oh, wait a sec. I think I should make another video which is behind the scene of "SUCK? OR NOT?". Because I was little bit (yeah JUST LITTLE BIT) crazy and excited. If somebody watched it, I could probably make them laugh!

That's how I decided to make another video. And I would like to embed BELOW!

So.....Now you know how much I was LITTLE BIT crazy and excited!

Oh, another "I forgot to tell you one thing"! Is that I just applied for "Japanese Blog Media Award". This Award is supported by livedoor and the reason why I did it was to spread Japanese that Vlogging is MUCH MUCH better and easier than Blogging (Which I'm doing now!). I wish Japanese would know about how great vlogging is.
If you do vlog and understand Japanese, check the award 

That's all I wanted you to know, thanks for reading and.....okay bye!

Hi everyone! It's been a long time to blog, I'm so sorry!
I have decided what kind of videos I am going to make recently.
First of all, "ARI? OR ALI?" is about Japanese things, related to Japanese culture, people etc. The reason why I made this title "ARI? OR ALI?" is that my last name.
My last name is actually ARI (this is between US!). But as long as I'm in Japan.
I am called "ALI". Are you confused? Well, don't be!!
The reason why I am called ALI is Japanese don't have "R" sounds. We ONLY have "L" sounds. You see now? Yeah, its's kind of funny and weird.
When I was in the USA, people call me ARI with a VERY collect pronunciation.
But Japanese call me ARI with a VERY wrong pronunciation even though I am Japanese, I mean WE are Japanese!
So this is the reason why I named my channel as "ARI? OR ALI?"

As I wrote down, I've decided what kind of videos I am going to make.
I now make 3 different kinds of show.
First show is "ARI? OR ALI?" and I talk about Japanese culture etc and make fun of Japanese culture, people, things.
Second show is "HFB (Hello From The Bicycle). I vlog with my cool bicycle.
Third show is "Behind HFB". This show is about how to customize bicycles by YOURSELF. To be honest, I've never customized bicycles in my life. So I am a totally beginner! I hope we can learn how to do it.

I now upload those shows, videos at only "ARI? OR ALI?". Sooner or later, I will separate them. I will make "ARI? OR ALI?" and "Hello From The Bicycle" (This might be included Behind HFB because it's very related to HFB.)
When I separate their shows, I will talk about it much deeper and funnier :P

That's all I wanted to talk about today! okay, I'll see you guys.......oh wait a minute, I just uploaded a new video! It's about sucking noodles! I think you are little bit tired or bored to read this blog now, oh you're not? Then I am tired!! So I won't write about my new video.

I will probably write about it tomorrow or someday.......all right, see you guys then!

Behind HFB -Mission 1- Get The New Bicycle!

Hello everyone! Guess what I just started?
Oh yeah, I just started a new series of HFB! It's "Behind HFB". (I first named "The behind scene of HFB. But I thought it's kind of long, so I named shorter. It was "The Behind of HFB". Then I thought "Okay, I can name shorter than "The Behind of HFB", How about "Behind HFB"? Oh yeah it's much shorter and easy to remember it! Therefore, I named "Behind HFB". I know it sounds incorrect. But it's easy to remember, isn't it?)
The reason why I decided to do this was I was going to get an USED bicycle. (on this vlog, I said "a NEW bicycle".....Please forgive me!) Then I though, "Oh, I would love t o fix and customize this awesome bicycle by MYSELF! Yeah, let's vlog what I am going to do!" That's why I started it.
So if you ride bicycles and wonder how to customize and fix bicycles, just watch this vlog. Plus, if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me! You're always welcome!!

Hello From The Bicycle -Episode 8- HFC in Osaka

Hello (I would always say "Hi" or "What's up?" or "How's going" but from now, I've decided to say "Hello". Because of HFB (Hello From The Bicycle), yeah you know what I mean!) everyone! HFB Episode 7 was continued next episode and this is the next episode of HFB.
I really love Osaka. I think I should MOVE to Osaka. I love the food and people.
I've been thinking about "What is Tokyo?" "What do we have?". It's really difficult to answer. It's one of the biggest city in the world. But I don't know what we have.
So that is the reason why I decided to set a moderator on my YouTube channel.
I live in Tokyo and I know about Tokyo very much.
"What do you want to see and know about Japan, Tokyo?"
If you post something you want to see and know, I'll go, vlog and make you laugh (as much as I can, as best as I can!)
I think this is going to be great. Because you can know about your question and also, I can REknow? relearn.
Go to my channel and ask me anything, it's for free!!

Hello From The Bicycle -Episode 7- HFC? or KFC?

How's going everyone? How's the weather where you live?
Tokyo had been really bad weather since yesterday. It'd been raining......
I really hate raining as I mentioned on my videos. I hope the weather will be awesome until I die!
Anyways, I uploaded a new HFB!......Oh it's actually HFC......yeah you now know the reason why it's HFC. Because of the raining!
I was in Kobe and heading to Osaka by the car. It was fun to drive and vlog.
But if it was NOT raining, I could ride my bicycle......that'd be much better.......
Nah, this vlog is fun even though it was raining! Check this out!!
