I love peanut butter mochi.

I love peanut butter mochi., originally uploaded by @jozjozjoz.

The Fugetsu-Do mochi is pretty good but my favorite are the homemade ones that Yoshi’s family makes at Christmas and that I hoard at New Year’s.

Google Voice sucks at transcribing voicemails from my Mom #2

I love Google Voice but it sucks at speech-to-text translation from my Mom. Of course this is not GV’s fault because most of the time, my Mom is speaking Chinese or maybe Chinglish at best. I really don’t expect it to translate twice! Here’s one example:

8/19/10 12:04 PM
Destiny. I mean the me. I will go to. I’m back. If you, the it. And we’d been saying for you okay bye bye.

Note: My Mom actually left this entire message for me in English
What GV got right: If you; for you okay bye bye (in italics)
What GV got wrong: Everything else.
