culture shock

Untitled It's still blazing over here, so let's talk about ice.

Last month when I was in Hawaii, Aunty Marian's ice maker went kaput.

She mentioned that someone would need to come and fix it.

Also awhile back, BFF, Wen mentioned if she wanted her refridge to make ice, she would need to install a waterline...

Apparently most U.S. refrigerators with ice makers need to be near a waterline, like near the sink.

In Japan though, our ice making refrigerators can be placed anywhere there is a plug, because we have a cartridge that we fill with water.

Untitled We put this cartridge directly into our refridge.

The water is sucked out and brought down to the ice making area of the freezer.

"Cool", yeah?!

Looks good but it would mean remembering to fill it up or no ice.
