[What Japan Thinks]

Well, nobody likes cleaning lol Cooking and gratitude are at the top of both lists. In general, it seems that both spouses want more attention. Cook some nice food, say thanks, give a hug, and prepare a surprise 🙂

  1. I noticed that they’re not kinda materialistic too…
    Anyway, gratitude is always important,
    …as well as cooking ^_^

  2. Yup, they do list presents, but I believe that a present does not have to be expensive – something hand made would be even better perhaps.

    It is good that cooking is at the top of the lists 🙂 Since I am a vegetarian, I am used to cooking simple and nutritious meals. Especially I like baking bread :3
