0 Responses to Japan Find: Umbrella Wrapping Gadget

  1. Love the clear umbrellas in Japan! Although pang winter and overcast skies lang. Walang silbi sa tag-init, hehe. The umbrella wrapping machine is just genius. I agree, with the way the Japanese mind works–and actually gets things they think of done–they’ll be able to rebuild the affected cities.

    • I just went through your husband’s 18 Japan albums on FB. Most of the places I still did not recognize. Did we go to the same city? Hahaha. Let’s plan a Game Plan gimmick to Osaka! When all of the chaos settles down, of course.

    • Ayun. That’s why our umbrellas are dark. Oo nga there’s a parasol — for the sun — and a parapui (if i remember the word right, for the the rain)

    I’m glad you posted this. Great ideas from a country that will surely get back on its feet soon.

  3. Wow what a cool gadget! Ah-mazing! And yes I’ve always loved clear umbrellas ever since I saw it in gossip girl LOL! I haven’t seen one though or I would have bought it! =P

    • Yes, trust us weirdos to like this thing. Haha. And I remember that umbrella scene on Gossip Girl – which proves my point exactly — i just thought it was aesthetic!

      Clear umbrellas were being sold everywhere in Japan! Maybe HK has a lot too.

    I never thought of umbrellas as fashionable. Christmas gift idea? :)

    I think that would be better here than those little dispensing stands they have in HK and Sing with the little plastic do it yourself wrappers for umbrellas. Here kasi people will steal the plastic things and use them for something else. Hahaha!

    Remind me to tell you the story of the missing umbrellas when we sent a team of Pinoys to India for training when we bought a new core banking system. :-)

    • I know what you mean! When I saw those plastic things in Rockwell, I wanted to get one even if I came in through the basement parking anyway!! Freeloaders!

      Let us meet up soon so I can finally give you your Christmas gift. Hahaha.
