So that was a typical day in my life in Japan! :D I'd love to know how you guys spend your day too! ;)
LPVids92 (4 days ago)
You can finish work at 5:20 pm :O ? Is that possible in Japan? How common is this?
Chill With Linh (3 days ago)
yes it is possible. But it really depends on the job, the company and the amount of work. There are other people in my company that leave at exactly 5:20 too so it's not just me. But at the same time, there are other people in my company who work until 10-11pm so I cannot say exactly how common this is. Even for me, right now it is the busy season so I stay til 8-9pm and it's normally busy around Feb to May only (again it is different for every job and every company), but when it's not the peak time anymore, I don't do overtime

Is it true that overtime is normal in Japan?
Wlopsn (1 month ago)
+Chill With Linh Can an employee reject doing overtime? I'm considering moving to Japan but the thought of working 12 hours a day scares me, I really enjoy spending my free time with my hobbies.
Chill With Linh (2 months ago)
Depends on the company and the job :) it’s common and normal but not like everyone has to do it
ashra floria (2 months ago)
Hi I really loved the vid. But I would really want to know if the stereotype in Japan is true saying that work life there is too exhausting. Im from Philippines btw. よろしく ^_^
ashra floria (1 month ago)
Chill With Linh Wow! Well I really wan to work in Japan so I guess I’ll just have to try it myself then. Thank you!
Chill With Linh (2 months ago)
And one of my roommates was from Philippines! 🇵🇭
Chill With Linh (2 months ago)
Hi! ☺️ work life is quite exhausting... but I haven’t worked in other countries before so I cannot really compare. The environment here is a bit stressful and can be quite lonely if you’re living alone
That life is truble
Chill With Linh (2 months ago)
Hmm whyy too sad haha?

This was really fascinating! I've traveled a lot, but I've yet to visit your country. I'm interested in what everyday life is like for women in other countries. :)

I’m glad you find this fascinating! This isn’t my country though I’m just a foreigner who has been living in Japan for a long time 😃

Hi Linh!! I like how honest and factual your video is! I can relate a lot with your video, even tho i live in the ph....hehehe im curious.i'd like to know how to learn japanese quickly. I'm working in a japanese company and i want to speak with them using their langauge...i also dream of living there in japan. So your advice should really help me a lot! Saaankyuu :)
Chill With Linh (3 months ago)
Heyy sorry for late reply!! That’s great that you can relate to this video!!! I don’t really have any advice on how to learn Japanese fast because it also took me a long time T.T but I think just try to listen a lot (movies etc.) and try to talk to people and you will improve faster :D maybe try using some language app to chat with native speaker too!
Ziah Parilla (4 months ago)
This is the video that I really enjoyed the most from your channel 😊Do you have any farmer's market near your location? If yes, I would like to see you make a video of it. Best wishes for your upcoming videos 💓
Chill With Linh (4 months ago)
Yeaaa :( I also wish it were easier to film here then I can show way many more things to people! :(
Ziah Parilla (4 months ago)
Chill With Linh That's sad, but I totally understand 😁
Chill With Linh (4 months ago)
Thank you~~ there are only supermarkets close to my area :( however, even if there is a farmer’s market, I think it will be hard to film. in general, it’s not easy to film in the public in Japan :( people just don’t like to be filmed by someone here :(
Alexander Tomaso (4 months ago)
Thanks for sharing. I laughed when you said "as you can see, nothing changed" after doing your makeup. Really cute. I'm going to try to start making lunch for work like you do to save money and eat healthier
Chill With Linh (4 months ago)
Thanks for watching!!! You should!! I should too lol... I made this video long time ago and I hadn’t been cooking for a long timeeeee just started again last week lol...

It’s pretty well known that Japanese salarymen work long hours. However, your working hours are 9-6. Are you not expected to work long hours?
Modojocor Lee (4 months ago)
That's good that your company is flexible. Your YT channel is really informative. I'll be traveling to Japan in November for their famous Autumn/Fall Foliage.
Chill With Linh (4 months ago)
It depends on the company, the department, the boss, the job, the industry, etc. Even in my company, there are departments that work 2-4 hours extra everyday and there are people who leave at 5.20 everyday. For my department, we have the busy season when we have to work more but also have a period of time when there is not much to do. There are many factors so it’s not like everyone has long working hours here (though many people do!)
Yeager Mcbipper (5 months ago)
"I wear makeup to show my respect". LOL the word is MISOGYNY. And nothing you said was about work. Please change title to "How to get a blood test". Honestly your video is more about hikikomori than work.
Chill With Linh (5 months ago)
This is how a normal person lives here :) and “nothing you said was about work” isn’t true. I did talk about how it is to work in a Japanese company. I cannot talk about my boss or my work because it’s not something I am allowed to talk to in public. I have a tons of friends what do you mean hikikomori? I choose not to show them in the video doesn’t make me a hikikomori. And people here do wear makeup to show their respect. It’s how the society standard is. Even Japanese talk about these when it comes to business manner. Doesn’t mean that it’s right or wrong. It’s how life is here. Please learn more about Japan before leaving a comment like this :)

Your routine life is well and good. What if you are unwell? How do you spend such days? How would u cope up?
karan arjun (5 months ago)
+Chill With Linh I really really appreciate your way of life.. independent, self-confident and happy from the inside. Great job Lihn. I too stay alone.I'm from Hyderabad, India. I would like to share my daily routine with you if you are interested.😀
Chill With Linh (5 months ago)
Umm I just skip almost everything I did in this video, sleep more, switch to food that are easy to make or already made 😁 I rarely get too sick so normally I can still go to work and do light activities 😂
Johan Setiawan (6 months ago)
i hear and read everywhere that japanese company required the employee to work overtime, but seems you don't need to experience that way, really?
Chill With Linh (6 months ago)
my pleasure :D sorry that I couldn't help much!
Johan Setiawan (6 months ago)
overall thank you for your responds 👍
Chill With Linh (6 months ago)
Hmm I’m not sure how it’s gonna be for people who work in English environment in Japan. But if it’s sales, I think you may have to do overtime or may have flexible working hours. Even in my company, the amount of overtime hours vary a lot depending on the region and each branch office too so can’t tell for sure. I guess the best way to know is to research well about the company you plan to work with if you receive an offer from them, talk to people who have worked there or read reviews on glassdoor or vorker to find out :)
Johan Setiawan (6 months ago)
Currently i'm more in the technical sales field for lighting company.
Chill With Linh (6 months ago)
It’s hard to say how many percentage since but I think it depends a lot on the type of job. Like office job like me, even if we don’t finish today, we can deal with the work tomorrow. The only time I have to do overtime a lot is when it’s busy period and workload suddenly increases and we have to finish by certain deadline. For jobs like sales or related to technology, you may have to deal with projects or customers then you have stricter deadline which also means more overtime to finish the work on time... what kind of job do you plan to find in Japan?

Awesome I love watching your YouTube channel. I enjoy the details you share and how you explain everything. Yes you're my fav YouTube person 💓😎
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
such an honor 💕😍 I seriously can't describe how happy I am whenever I read your comments ✨
I haven't eaten vegetables in years haha. I never knew the morning exercise was common although I've seen it before in documentaries, I just thought it was a few companies that did it. Thanks for the video!
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
And I know some people who never eat vegetable too😂 I guess it just depends on your own taste. I will crave for vegetable if I don't get to eat it at least twice a week lol
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
we had a training and the instructor for that training has been working with many different companies and she told me that many companies do these morning exercises so that's why I got to know it. I remember feeling so weird and funny when I did it the first time hahaha
AMV V (1 year ago)
Thanks for sharing your life w/ us! My family and I are from the U.S. and we'll be visiting Tokyo soon! We're so excited! We have been learning Japanese and we frequently watch NHK. We have learned some Japanese mannerisms, but we did not know about standing on the left side of the escalator. It seems that the Japanese culture focuses on being considerate of others. Its amazing! It's quite the opposite in America. Anyway, if you have time, maybe you can show us some other things Japanese people do to be considerate of others.
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
that's so exciting!! When will you guys come to Tokyo? :)  I think a lot of other big Youtubers have made videos about manners in Japan and how to show consideration toward others. Therefore, I don't plan on making a similar video. HOWEVER, I'm planning for another video about "10 things you don't know about Japan", which will be posted in February! And by saying "don't know", I really mean it. I'm gonna mention things that even some foreigners living in Japan don't know about (not just about manners but about Japan in general). So stick around if you're interested ;) Here are some of videos about manners that may be useful for you :D  Top 10 Things You Shouldn't Do In Japan  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOm2lnWxiaI  10 Things NOT to do on a TOKYO TRAIN https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g6NsUXcTBEE 12 Things NOT to do in Japan  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GCuvcTI090 Anyway I think there's no need to worry too much about manners. Since you're going to Tokyo, you will see many Japanese doing things that were mentioned in the videos above as well lol. Just try to be polite and you guys should be fine!  Hope you have a wonderful trip in Japan! If you need any advice or have any question, feel free to contact me anytime (Send me an email -> [email protected], or message me on Twitter, or just comment on any video I'll get back to you as soon as I can :D). I'll try my best to help ;)
Take Action Today (1 year ago)
mhhm healthy food, wish I was better at cooking food
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
yep haha good luck with that! Umm I just try my best so at the end of the day I cannot really blame myself for not trying 😁😁
Take Action Today (1 year ago)
Yeah I know haha actually looks like simple stuff to make :P I like the effort put into your videos you seem very busy
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
to be honest the taste wasn't that amazing hahaha. Just try throwing stuffs in and adjust from there. You'll get something at least edible 😜
Take Action Today (1 year ago)
I'm so glad that you open your eyes! would be a tough day if you didnt :P
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
it was indeed a really good workout, too good I'd better not repeat again haha
Take Action Today (1 year ago)
hahahaha omg, think of it as a workout :)
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
Last week I woke up very late once, ran like crazy to company and almost passed out haha :P
climmy grim (1 year ago)
That was super interesting. Where i live also we stand to the right side on on of those escalators. This really makes me want to move to Japan
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
Ohh that's interesting. Actually in Tokyo, people stand on the left side but in Kansai area like Osaka, people stand on the right side which is opposite 😁 I hope you can move one day! I've been in Japan for more than 5 years and I still enjoy living here so much 😁
Mai Nguyen (1 year ago)
This was a really fun video! I've always wondered what it's like living and working in Japan for people with normal 9-5 jobs. It's interesting how you brought up putting on makeup for work. Years ago when I used to live in Japan, I got into the habit of putting on makeup every day before work because it felt so weird (like everyone was looking at me) if I wasn't wearing makeup. Fortunately, this habit has followed me back to the states so that I can still look presentable 😅. Also, I am super jealous of your 20 minute walking commute! That's such a short commute.
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
I know right it almost feel like I didn't wash my face or brush my teeth haha... Yea it's really close so I can avoid getting pushed on the crowded trains but on the other hand I'm living so far away from all of the fun stuffs and my friends so that's the tradeoff 😁
Kim Suh (1 year ago)
Great/super interesting vlog! Really enjoyed watching. Thought the portion where you couldn't film inside your office was hilarious and really liked the shots of you in the corner seat of the train haha. I'd be really be interested in seeing videos about the surrounding wilderness/temples/food. Please keep uploading!
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
haha I need to learn to love it like you do 😂 I'm quite okay when I'm with friends but way tooo shy when I'm alone haha
Kim Suh (1 year ago)
Chill With Linh haha, I always love the weird looks I get on the train :)
Chill With Linh (1 year ago)
Alright I'll keep that in mind. I placed my camera on the opposite seat when I shot that corner seat scene then an old lady got on the train, passed by, noticed the camera and looked at me like alien hahaha
