Monkies and Mochi

Shimura's Zoo is a popular Japanese TV show which stars the lovable and talented chimpanzee, Pan-kun. The shows usually involve Pan-kun going on adventures with his bulldog friend James and his also adorable owner.

Mochi is glutinous rice cakes. During the New Year, families get together to make mochi from scratch in a tradition called Mochitsuki. I came across a mochi party in December and it looked like a lot of fun, but also a lot of hard work.

So what do the two have in common? Nothing really, but here is a cute video of Pan-kun making mochi with Ms. Universe (the transexual edition) Ai Haruna. If you are bored at work, I suggest googling Pan-kun's other adventures - notably, the one with the magician and the one where he uses the Tokyo Metro with James.
