Cat's Tongue

Many languages have a variety of unique expressions, and today's title is an example of Japanese one translated directly into English.

The expression "Neko jita" consists of two Kanji(es?), and the first part(Neko) means "cat", and the second one (jita) is "tongue".
English speakers would not understand this expression because, I guess, it makes sense only in Japanese.
So what does it mean?

This saying describes that his or her tongue is too sensitive to have something very hot, or easy to burn their tongues.
I don't know how this expression comes, but this is really useful and I frequently say it.

Like when I have a coffee with my friend,
"It's too hot for me. I am "Neko Jita"!"

Stewardess Secret Photographing CEO is released.

A 34 years old man, the CEO of a company in Takamtsu, was arrested by the Tokyo Airport Police for sneaking shot of a stewardesses in a flying plane, but he was released without indictment, reported on Ocotber 12th.

From the witnesses, the police confirmed that he took a sneaking photograph over the Hyogo prefecture's sky, and arrested him on suspicion of the prefecture's Anti-Nuisance Ordinance. However, the Tokyo District Public Prosecutors Office judged that they did not have enough conviction to specify where the crime happened.

In the morning on September 9th, the man was grabbed because of taking inside of a stewardess's skirt with a spy cam attached to a ball-painted pen in the flying Japan Airline's plane .

He confessed to the clime, and many sneaking pictures were found from his computer.

Usually each Anti-Nuisance Ordinance is applied for sneaking shot's exposure, but planes travel around some prefectures at very high speed so that it is difficult to identify where the incident has happened.
There has been no example of arresting during flight so far.
