(Hotel pt 22) I humbly receive

For Japan-savvy folks, this is nothing new, but for those who aren't, Japanese customarily say a phrase before and after each meal: いただきます( Ita da ki masu) for before the meal and ごちそうさま(Gochi sou sama) for after the meal.

Of course, I didn't think too much about this when I was living there. I was merely doing "what I was supposed to do." I got the chuckles when I looked it up on Wiki and it translated the "Ita da ki masu" as "I humbly receive." I guess that's what it is, but it just sounds odd and funny to me. Anyhow, the phrase delivers thanks to all the people  involved to make the meals possible. Oh, and don't forget to put your hands together as you say these phrases. It can make you a cooler Gaijin.

You can hear "Ita da ki masu" more than a couple of times in this clip. Phonically, it won't sound like how I had it spelled but hope you can at least spot when they say this.

And thank you to those giving us more information on certain celebrities whom miss to explain. It helps me, too.

Thank you Alex, and of course, my wife for their help.
Enjoy,
