In Japan, “Ma-ku-do-na-ru-do” = “McDonald

I went to McDonalds in one of the shopping centers  (I think it was the one at Odaiba) . I told my cousin that I worked at McDonald’s before. She repeated after me and said Mac Donalds … .

She said she didn’t know what I was talking about…When I pointed it out at the shopping center, she started laughing. She called it… Ma-ku-do-na-ru-do.  Now I know what to say when I get the cravings for the Big Mac…
