    Hello Max, How are you.
    I admire that your pronunciation in Japanese is excellent. I’m also surprised with your vocabulary when I saw the Youtube of Soccer/Fotball,and other topics. Calfornia Roll is ubiquitous in the US and I can eat it here in Japan. However, I was astonished that people in Australian were not reluctant to eat raw oyster. I usually warn patients not to eat raw oyster here in Japan because it contains Norovirus which causes vomiting and diarrhea. I heard that oyster in Australia has no such viruses and people eat fresh raw oyster at seafood restaurants. And also, Australian salmon has no parasites.
    I went to Sydney in August and it was fantastic. The temperature was around 15-20C and it was so cool. I went to the beach, but nobody swam in the sea.
    However, a Japanese restraint served me something kind of a sweet meal, like Teriyaki Chicken, which didn’t satisfy our palate. I guess Australians have a sweet tooth. Mango role with Teriyaki Chicken would be so sweet, I imagine. I love Australian fruits and they were so cheap. I ordered a bowl of fruits salad at a cafeteria and it cost around $5.
    I look forward to hearing from you.

      Hello Seiichi,
      Thank you for your comment and for watching Weekly English.
      Thank you – but I am still studying Japanese hard! 🙂
      That’s right – raw oysters are a very popular seafood in Australia. There actually have been a few Norovirus outbreaks in Australia, but generally it is not a problem as long as the oysters are fresh, as there are very strict regulations to ensure that the oysters don’t make you sick. Oyster bars are a very popular type of restaurant in Australia. I’m sorry to hear that you didn’t like the Teriyaki Chicken, but I think it depends on which restaurant you go to. There are some very good Japanese restaurants in Sydney, but also some very bad ones. When I worked at a Japanese restaurant, the Mango Roll was actually more popular with Chinese customers than Australians. I actually enjoy fruit in Japan more than I did in Australia – particularly fruits like Strawberries in Japan are delicious. (but expensive)
      Have a great day!

        Hello Max,
        Thank you again for you kind reply. It’s good for Australians that there have been a few Norovirus outbreaks. As a medical profession, I stay away from eating raw oysters and some other strange food. As you mentioned previously, is it safe to eat raw Witchetty Grub? Does it contain some parasites which may lethally infect our body? I think Australian food in general is good because you have a variety of fresh fruits, vegetables and sea food. I read an article about slavery on the Thai fishing industry to catch prawns. I remember eating delicious shrimps in a restaurant near fish market.
        Are the shrimps coming from the nearby sea or are they imported from the Thailand?
        I agree that Japanese fruits are nice, but a bit expensive.

          Hi Seiichi,
          Thanks for your comment.
          I often eat Tamago kake gohan in Japan – but in Australia people do not eat raw eggs because they are afraid of Salmonella. This is quite similar to how Japanese people do not eat raw oysters. Do you tell your patients that it is okay to eat raw eggs?

          I have never eaten a Witchetty Grub myself, but I have heard that they are quite healthy. They were a staple food for the Aboriginal people in Australia, but not many people eat them now.

          Thank you for linking me the article – I found it quite shocking. Most prawns in Australia are locally sourced, so I think you are safe in saying that the prawns at the fish market were Australian. I had a look and there was one supermarket product for sale in Australia that used the Thai prawns, but it has now been removed from shops.
