Soft Japanese Bagel





Hi, my name is Mari.

I’m a baker and baking soft Japanese bagels

They say, “Bagels are so hard to eat!”

But my bagels are soft, chewy and yummy!

The bagels I’ve baked recently are as follows:



This is a soft onion bagel.

Using this bagel, I’ve made it into a fried-oyster bagel sandwitch.


If you want to know how to make it, please take a look at the following article in my own blog:


“Fried Oyster Bagels”


The next bagel is a “bagel pizza”—my own creation.




It is soft yet crispy and, of course, yummy!

How do you make it?—you may ask.

Well… take a look at the following article:


“How to make bagel pizza”


You might as well bake your own kind of bagel pizza with your favorite topping.

One of my favorites is the following Croque-Monsieur-style bagel.




It looks delicious!—don’t you think?

If you want to know its recipe, please take a look at the following article:


“Croque-Monsieur-style bagel”


I don’t think you’ve ever heard of “JAGEL” as a kind of bagel.

If you search on GOOGLE, you may see the following results.


【Search Results at the present】


About 401,000 hits are too mnay, but none of the results match the “JAGEL” which I’ve just coined for “soft Japanese bagel.”

Jagel might mean many things, one of which is a name for a German town in the district of Schleswig-Flensburg as shown in “Wikipedia”.




Why did I coin the word?

Well … Spreading the taste of “New Japan”—soft Japanese bagels or JAGELS is my dream.

I’ve just posted this article in Denman’s blogs.

Denman is one of my uncles.

He’s been living in Vancouver for more than 20 years.

His blog “Denman Blog” is read by Net citizens all over the world.

I’ve got another big, big, big dream.

Some day, I’d like to own and operate a chain of bagel shops called “JAGEL” all over the world just as in the above map and list.

When I was a small girl, living in Vancouver was a dream simply because Uncle Denman and kayo-chan, one of my girl-cousins, lived in Vamcouver and my relatives talked to me about both of them.




Beautiful Vancouver






I’m now living in North Vancouver with a Japanese Canadian family.

Lonsdale Avenue


Now I love and enjoy every minute of the day here in North Vancouver.

Auntie Karen loves my soft, chewy and yummy bagels.


She once ejaculated, “Oh, Mari, this is one of the best bagels I’ve ever tasted in my whole life.”

I’ve been here in North Vancouver for 2 months now, and am looking for a job as baker.

The problem is I don’t have a work permit nor a permanent resident card.

I’ve heard that I might get a job offer more easily in the North than in Vancouver.

So, if you’re a bagel shop owner or a cafeteria manager in Yukon, Alberta, North West Territories, or Northern Ontario and willing to sponsor me and help me get a visa, I would be more than happy to talk with you.

In any case, thank you for reading this article, and really wish that you will take a bite on my jagel some day.

Bye now.

As Mari wrote in her article, she has now settled in North Vancouver and enjoys Canadian life to the hilt.

She is one of the most hardworking, cheerful and good-natured women I’ve ever known in my life.
Mari has excellent people skills and gets along well with almost everyone and she has no trouble getting to know new people.

She used to work in a fun-loving, friendly, well-organized bagelry, and wish to work in the same work environment.
If you give her an opportunity to bake her jagels, I’d really appreciate it.

Thank you for reading my monologue.
