  • Hello, everyone s So I've always loved how people send out Christmas and New Year's cards to friends and family.

  • And this year, we wanted to do the same, but in a video version to our friends and family.

  • So we wanted to share with you all of our favorite moments this year.

  • Especially those of you who don't watch both of our channels Paula from Tokyo and Tokyo Zebra and let all of you know what we have planned for 2021.

  • But first, let's take our family photo smile.

  • So I think this little elf is getting a little bit sleepy between music to take a little bit of arrest, right?

  • Yeah, yeah.

  • Eso you couldn't start this video without thanking all of you for helping us get one million subscribers earlier this February.

  • It still blows my mind that we get to share and create everything that we love about Japan with you every week.

  • And we're almost hitting two million subscribers.

  • Yeah, that's pretty freaking crazy s o thank you for sharing this journey with us and the second channel.

  • Oh, yeah.

  • And we started a second channel earlier this year.

  • Tokyo zebra and we're even at 100,000 subscribers.

  • So thank you for that.

  • We are so blessed.

  • It is freaking amazing.

  • Also.

  • Quick note.

  • This will be our last video in 2020.

  • You wanted to spend a little more family time kind of doing stuff together and kind of just enjoying the end of the year.

  • We hope you guys can do the same, so we'll be back in the regular schedule Saturday morning.

  • 9 a.m. from me January So that said, Let's talk about what happened this year and I'm not gonna lie.

  • It was a bit challenging, probably more challenging than a previous years, not only because of the pandemic, but we also had a baby this year, and trying to create content on top of all of this every single week was quite challenging.

  • So it was really, really tough this year, right?

  • Eso If you pick a theme, what would it be for this year?

  • I would say it would have to be maybe creative perseverance, and this is why first of all, at the beginning of the year we announced that we're having a baby.

  • You did it.

  • You could tell of it.

  • Tronto taking taking a tithe.

  • So with the baby on the way, we started to look to buy a house and possibly renovate.

  • For example, this place was about $400,000 which we thought was just a bit too much for what we got.

  • So we didn't have a lot of options, and, well, he was coming out really soon.

  • So we decided to rent instead.

  • Way still had issues.

  • We applied to rent this place, but the owner decided to rent to another person.

  • Super nice view, though.

  • So our initial apartment search brought us to a few pretty good options that I was pretty sold on.

  • But I wasn't.

  • Yeah, and thank God that she wasn't sold because if we had moved into one of the places, we would have to be moving out right now because it on Lee had a two year contract.

  • Even though I loved it, it was just a little bit too short of a contract.

  • I'm glad you stuck to your guns because I love the place we're in now.

  • Me to first time our place.

  • Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • Here's the apartment before we moved in.

  • Oh, happy.

  • Yeah, but first we had to move out of our place.

  • I have a little trouble with blood meet.

  • Then we showed you how we set up our house.

  • All right, so this is the main living, dining and kitchen area.

  • In fact, we live in a two l d.

  • K.

  • Which means in Japan.

  • Two bedrooms, living, dining in kitchen.

  • So one of things that was quite important to us was to keep the workstations here in the main living area so that when the baby comes, we can also watch over the baby while we're working.

  • Then just after we moved in, I went into labor.

  • Okay.

  • Is happening.

  • What's happening?

  • What's happening?

  • Eh?

  • So we don't know yet.

  • She just suggested Just called him to check.

  • Oh, my God.

  • I think it's, um how Oh, my gosh.

  • Oh, my gosh.

  • Okay, Well, I just got a call.

  • Looks like she's checking in.

  • Oh, wow.

  • I'm gonna be a dad Suit.

  • I'm so excited.

  • I can't wait.

  • So because of Corona, they didn't let Paolo into the clinic.

  • So I spent six days at the hospital all by myself.

  • So I was pretty tired after birth, and so I can't believe I did it all by myself.

  • But somehow I managed to record some stuff there.

  • I'll be like sitting this doughnut cushion.

  • I went.

  • I had time where I can't even sit.

  • I did this.

  • It hurts.

  • Then on May 25th, 2020 our son, Tiger Wolverine Guzman a k.

  • Wolfie came into this world.

  • Although I missed my son's birth, the nurse was kind enough to take some video for us.

  • Every time I see that video, my heart just melts.

  • Yeah, I can't watch that again and again.

  • A little guy, also cute.

  • I can't believe he was in your stomach.

  • Oh, and like we figured out why he was having trouble with the heartbeat was get speak once in a while.

  • Yeah, Hazel was like pulling three times on his neck.

  • And finally, six days later, I got to see my son for the first time.

  • E Oh, hey!

  • Oh!

  • Oh, This is my son.

  • Aren't you excited?

  • This is my son.

  • Even with a day in the life videos, they were so hard to schedule and coordinate.

  • But I still found a way.

  • The Japanese delivery worker was a bit of an exception because we feel that just a little bit before coronavirus.

  • But we still released it this year, and it was quite memorable.

  • Yeah, but the funny thing was, I thought a lot of people said that she's so actress.

  • No.

  • Yes, it was a real deal.

  • I thought it was cool when I was editing that people in the neighborhood knew her.

  • The pachinko worker was also pretty amazing.

  • I loved how Ken Toe would change from his suit into a uniformed every day.

  • I liked how he changed into the same shoes to same shoes.

  • E was funny.

  • I even got to film a Japanese butcher this year, which is pretty cool.

  • Well, one of the funny things from that video is if you see him going toe work in the morning.

  • He's carrying a helmet after he arrives, and a lot of people were like, Why is he carrying a helmet?

  • Didn't even ride a bike.

  • People were really, really confused.

  • And the story behind that one Waas usually every day he does some of his deliveries with a scooter with a motorbike.

  • But that day he didn't just because it was gonna be easier for us to film.

  • That was why he was carrying a helmet.

  • But you know what?

  • This video wouldn't be right if I didn't talk about some of the favorite food spots that I had this year I shared a sesame and macho parfait.

  • And how did you Good, he rolled.

  • I had a fried wagyu only garage style sandwich in Daikon Yama.

  • It's still a little bit rare on the inside, but crispy on the outside.

  • Wow, these things to my inner soul.

  • I also got to have a Okatsu with maple syrup in a savage even.

  • Well, it's sex that I couldn't be at the old filming now.

  • Yeah, I mean, that was kind of one of the reasons why you started this channel was so that we could enjoy food together.

  • But because of the quarantine, we did get a little bit creative and we had to stay home for some of the videos and We still had fun, right?

  • It almost looked like tampons, right?

  • He's like, tampon size Michael.

  • All right on.

  • And that was our year, pandemic and all.

  • We got pretty creative.

  • We persevered, and we got to create some pretty cool moments.

  • We hope that you are able to do the same and find your silver lining.

  • And what's been a pretty crazy and scary year coming 2021.

  • And we have a lot of stuff plan, given that everything comes down a little bit and restrictions are lifted.

  • In fact, we had a lot of day in the life plan for this year, but because of everything going on, we had to postpone.

  • So a lot of those collaborations will continue from next year, which I'm super excited for.

  • Also, with the channels growth this year.

  • Because of all of you guys, I'm getting more opportunities to show you places and things in Japan that are rarely seen, which is gonna be pretty awesome this coming year, and it's gonna be older than music and come with you.
