  • - Hello everybody, welcome to my birthday vlog,

  • today's my birthday, I turn 37.

  • You know what I got for my birthday?

  • An ingrown hair.

  • No, for real, what I got from Martina,

  • I got this cool little scratcher map,

  • so we can scratch off all the countries that we went to,

  • 'cause we've been to a lot of countries, this is amazing.

  • My ducky is very sweet,

  • and you know what else she set up for me?

  • So, when I come downstairs in the morning,

  • I had...

  • You see that?

  • She put all this tinsel?

  • Is it called tinsel?

  • What is this called?

  • Arts and crafts girl, what's this called?

  • My ducky doesn't want me to vlog this anymore.

  • Martina hates when these, you ready?

  • Wee!

  • Happy birthday to me!

  • Oh (sheep bleating) I got tangled.

  • Oh my sweet girl, I'm gonna cry,

  • she made me a little breakfast bento

  • look, you have the little toothpicks on there.

  • Ducky, this is amazing!

  • It's such a small toothpick!

  • Oh my God, Ducky come here, beautiful girl.

  • We are now on our way to-- - Shinjuku-eki.

  • - And then where are we going from there?

  • - Well I'm not gonna tell you,

  • when you're trying to put me on camera

  • but I'm not gonna do it to you.

  • - It's a surprise.

  • - But I did just get an alert saying that there is a delay,

  • because there's some kind of an accident between Harajuku,

  • and Shinjuku, and Shibuya-eki,

  • so hopefully we'll make it to Shinjuku.

  • - Oh.

  • - We have to get there by 3:30.

  • - Is it ram, oh my gosh, look at that,

  • I should not have zoomed in. - Oh wow.

  • - Tell me where we're going, answer me!

  • - No.

  • - One of the big things for our birthdays

  • that we always do--

  • (Martina speaking in a foreign language)

  • Is we always have to try to surprise each other

  • on our birthdays.

  • It happened for, Martina mentioned it once,

  • at the beginning of our relationship,

  • and we've been doing it ever since.

  • - When will it stop?

  • - When will it stop?

  • So much work. - Please,

  • I'm tired of it, no more.

  • Blue Bottle Coffee's here,

  • I was so excited when it finally came,

  • and then I realized it was a nightmare

  • because Shinjuku Station always sucks,

  • and it's always filled with 97 people with no tables.

  • - True.

  • - There's other good coffee shops,

  • which you're gonna find out in this video later on,

  • but Simon doesn't know (vocalizing).

  • - Ah, so we're going to a nice coffee shop!

  • - [Martina] Not right now, but it's a hint.

  • - Oh!

  • - [Martina] Eat that hint.

  • - I just had to turn on the camera, Martina, tell me more.

  • - No.

  • - [Simon] Spill your guts.

  • - No.

  • So there are a bunch of shops that, hey wait a second!

  • - Martina's telling me more!

  • - Did you have that on the whole time?

  • Seriously? - I did.

  • You just turn on the camera and she confesses all.

  • Tell me your deepest darkest secrets.

  • - [Martina] No.

  • - [Simon] What else are you hiding from me?

  • - Uh BTS'-- - Oh my God,

  • are you (duck quacks) crazy?

  • This is my birthday, now it's my death day!

  • - No, no, stop.

  • (light bouncy music)

  • - We have finally arrived at the location, we are at...

  • I'm not sure yet.

  • What?

  • - The last order's, shoot.

  • - At three? - It wasn't on the website,

  • it said that it closes at 3:30,

  • but I thought the last order would be 3:30

  • 'cause they usually close at four.

  • - Gotcha.

  • - But they close at three. - Ah it's alright.

  • - Shoot, darn, and dang it.

  • - Well there's lots of other cool stuff

  • we saw on the way.

  • - [Martina] So, 11:30 to 2:30, the last order's at three.

  • - [Simon] Well we learned something new about restaurants.

  • - Well we didn't--

  • - [Simon] If you ever see a sign about when it closes--

  • - Give it half an hour.

  • - [Simon] Yeah give it half an hour.

  • - We did a video on food, remember?

  • We talked about looking at orders and stuff,

  • we've talked about how many times

  • we've been bamboozled by it but it's never caught on camera.

  • Oh, I have a second back up.

  • - Oh! - But she didn't,

  • she searches wildly on her map that she's pinned from before

  • knowing that near everything is closed,

  • now that it nears 3:30.

  • (light bouncy music)

  • Okay, we're in official ramen hunting mode now.

  • - Yep.

  • - This is my favorite kinda mode,

  • we don't often coincide on ramen hunting days,

  • like there's some days where Simon's like,

  • "I just really wanna smash a greasy bowl of ramen,"

  • and I'm like "Yeah I don't feel like that today."

  • And then we're like "Dang it,"

  • and then there's another time when I'm like,

  • "Let's go for some greasy-ass ramen,"

  • and Simon's like, "I just worked out and I don't want that."

  • And I'm like...

  • But today, a miracle has happened.

  • - We both have agreed. - It's a birthday miracle,

  • we're both like "Let's go smash a bowl of ramen."

  • And we're both like "Yes!"

  • I'm sorry.

  • This is really (speaks in foreign language) honestly.

  • It's temporarily closed, it's a total fluke.

  • It's temporarily closed.

  • - [Simon] Yeah, all right.

  • What else you got on this list here?

  • - See, this is when people don't understand

  • when we say ramen hunt.

  • - We've been walking for hours.

  • (Martina vocalizing)

  • I think we might finally have found a place that's open.

  • We're going for Hakata style ramen--

  • - And Hakata style ramen is so good, it's so creamy.

  • - Okay, let's go girl, let's go.

  • (light upbeat music)

  • Yeah boy!

  • Yes everybody,

  • we are wearing matching shirts on my birthday.

  • Cheers love. - Cheers.

  • And I look like a gigantic woman,

  • and you look like a tiny boy.

  • - Oh no! - Oh no!

  • (Simon speaks in foreign language)

  • Did you say (speaks in foreign language)

  • as though you live in Busan?

  • - Stop it, you're so huge.

  • - Do you have your tiny half drink halfling?

  • Yours is poured in but a thimble.

  • - Ready?

  • Cheers.

  • - Ding!

  • I don't know how I'm going to get through this.

  • - Gorgeous egg.

  • We are starving but we are dedicated, alright?

  • - That's enough.

  • - That's enough. - We need to eat.

  • We need to eat. - It's time for me to eat.

  • - [Narrator] Oh, Hakata style ramen,

  • you are a dirty, tonkatsu ramen with a thick oily top,

  • unforgiving with your lush broth

  • clinging to those thin noodles.

  • Ooh, light, bouncy,

  • but not too overpowering for them.

  • I can't wait to slurp these up, heck yes,

  • I could eat these everyday.

  • (record scratches) - Why you keep meowing?
