    Seeing Mao's thread bumped up reminded me that she did the ALS ice bucket challenge too.
    I don't see any ice in the bucket though

    Yes, it looks like Mao is making a big splash in Los Angeles. Maybe she'll get a star on the Holywood Walk of Fame. It's ironic that she goes to where all the stars are to have a vacation from her own fame in Japan,

    Who is Ayaka Morimoto? She has so many fun photos with Mao . Mao's fan thread will be inevitably quiet, but I'm so happy to see that she's having a blast.

    Thank you for the video link. She is so beautiful in that dress. What is she helping to promote? What is the white thing she is holding in her right hand?

    Arsoa is a cosmetics line. She's endorsing a face soap bar. Here is the product page on their english website. It says one piece of soap (which comes in a fancy case?) is 50 USD ! I don't want to sound negative, but looking at the ingredients has me thinking you could get something very similar on etsy (a site where a lot of homemade things are listed, a lot of organic soaps with honey, sucrose aka sugar, glycerin, charcoal, etc. on there) for a lot less money

    Thanks for the information. I see your point and I understand you are joking a bit, but she might as well take the offers while they are pouring in. Besides, she says she really likes the soap and has been using it for a long time.

    This isn't directed at you satine94 , but it's just my general feeling. After all the money she has given to the JSF and all the points that were taken away in Sochi and in Worlds LP's, which were evidently given to others, I think it's about time she started receiving. (As a long time fan, I would throw in Worlds 2007 (placement and scores) and her scores at 2010 worlds as well.) Not to mention the criticism she gets for ur's and downgrades when at least some of them are illegitimate in her own country, which has gone a long way to undermining perception of her last wonderful freeskate at Worlds. One of my favorite quotes about Mao is below her Sochi LP video on youtube, which is a quote from Albert Einstein posted by cupoftea4you:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5kGe6Sulrak

    The value of a man (or a woman) should be seen in what he or she gives and not in what he or she is able to receive."

    But, now I say it's payback time.

    CONK from Mao Asada Forum provided some rough translations and a longer clip below:
    I like the part when she got asked about practices after her summer shows. Mao answered without hesitation: "Right now I'm taking rest." Then later on in the clip she was asked about GP season to start soon, she says that she'll watch (the competitions, most likely the broadcastings), only if she has time.

    Here's a longer video clip of the interview section:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iDfsha_2tyk

    I'll try to provide some rough translation below:

    - The interviewer starts by paying compliment to Mao's white "marshmallow"-like dress, and asks Mao to turn around.
    (Mao jokes about not doing any jump but complies to the request)
    - Mao explains that she's been using the facial soap by Arsoa for a long time
    (The interviewer pays compliment to Mao's skin condition. Mao answers: it's in good condition![​IMG] )
    -The interviewer asks when she started using the soap? Mao answers she was abroad for a competition, but forgot to bring the facial washer. She borrowed the soap from others and has simple started using the soap since then.
    - They ask Mao about the new visual AD poster and play the old video when Mao visited countryside
    - The reporter asks about the summer. Mao answers that she was in LA, and visited places including Disney Land, Hollywood and seasides with her friends. She also tried circus trapeze...she said it was kind of scary.

    Oh no, gotoschool, I wasn't criticizing her for taking the endorsement. I'd like her to profit as much as she can from her career, in many ways. I just personally would not buy it. I'm a cheapo though
