Random Happenings During Halloween + Latest Kawaii Fall Finds in Takeshita Dori, Harajuku!; Fashion,Haul,Kawaii
Konnichiwa~!! How are the halloween preparations going? Is the halloween tradition popular in your country? In Japan, it’s quite a big thing. During the last days of October, it would be quite normal to bump into people wearing funny and scary costumes in the train, streets.. and probably in some malls as well..? It’s always an interesting scene when you see a group of power rangers or pretty gals with bloody gun shots! Haha~
Speaking of Halloween…
So cutee! Makes me want to dress up in Totoro-inspired fashion again!
During POP n Cute Halloween Party~ Currently editing the video for TokyoFashion.com. Please stay tuned!

Meeting A in Harajuku!
Yesterday, I went to Tokyo and had a “meeting” (sounds mature, haha!) with FindJPN regarding one of their future events. Hopefully my input will be helpful, hihi. Later that day, my friend A (yep, her cool name is really A.. this is not a code or something haha) and I finally met up! A was one of my advertising classmates in La Salle. Advertising Management students in my school are .. scarce (hahaha) so everyone knows each other (and cry with each other hahaha). She comes to Japan often because her parents work here. Since I’ve been swamped with work lately, it’s always a great feeling to have a chat with a friend and speak Tagalog to each other! WEEEE!
Actually, I forgot this cream beret and I wore a different pair of shoes because it was raining ;_; HUHUHU why does it have to rain when I go and have my Tokyoventure??
(Edit: I didn’t attend a Halloween event this day just for clarification hehe :D )
Ah, seeing this station sign always warms my heart.

The Luckiest Day in Harajuku: Meeting Cheesie & Audrey + SWIMMER Shopping HAUL!!!; Haul,Kawaii,Personal,Tokyo Fashion
Before anything else…
To those who easily assume that I support a “cruel marketing idea” just because I want to buy a puppy rather than adopting, please read this thread. Japan (Saitama in particular) is not similar with other countries/places that have a lot of adoption centers >_<
Let me just quote what Chandra commented, “Buying or dog or adopting shouldn’t matter. at least the dog will be in a loving home.” — WORD!!
Anyway, I just really want this specific toy poodle as my companion (but I’m also thinking of getting Pepper!!) :O :O :O
I know that 100k views in 2 weeks GOAL is pretty crazy but it wouldn’t hurt trying, right? ^^v
Lucky Lucky Kaila!! (real entry promise)
OMG GUYS I CAN’T EVEN… I DON’T KNOW HOW TO START WRITING EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED YESTERDAY @_@
The power of *law of attraction* works so much that it’s already scaring me (in a good way!!). The Secret is working SOOO freakishly STRONG!!! If only I could spill everything “going” on in my life right now, I definitely would! but let’s just save the details for the main course. Here is just the appetizer of everything!!! ;_; I thank my brother for introducing me “The Secret” during the most down times I had when my first Japanese visa got rejected. Life depresses you for a while but it’s only you who can handle your thoughts by having positivity and optimism.
So yesterday, I had a DAY OFF from work (which is basically just helping out my brother with all of his projects / shipments.. but believe me, I still work as a creative designer haha). I had to go to 6% DOKIDOKI to do some shopping for a client (almost 50,000 JPY worth of items!!). I was so paranoid when I withdrew my money from the bank. Good thing I was in the safest place on Earth so I wouldn’t worry for troublesome snatchers. When I was in the Philippines and still a struggling university student, even if I had just a thousand or so, I make sure my money is evenly distributed in my pockets, wallet, bag’s pockets… socks.. (ok kidding) just in case I’d get snatched when my defense was weak. But that weakened defense only happened once because there was a time when I even scared a snatcher before when I caught him, trolololol.
Precious 6% DOKIDOKI stuff for a client
OK back to HARAJUKU (why am I talking about my first-hand snatcher experiences??)–
Since I was already there, I thought I should reward myself with another kawaii shopping haul so I visited LaForet just for SWIMMER!! I’m too poor that I feel other brands like Nile Perch, etc, etc. are still far from my reach (or I am just being so frugal? -_-;;) Anyway sooo I bought a few stuff from SWIMMER and I contemplated for the longest time if I should buy the most reasonably priced & most kawaii suitcase/luggage bag I’ve ever seen. At first, I didn’t know it had sizes so I was quite sad because the one on display was too big and heavy. After that, I just went around and I walked back to Harajuku station because I felt like going home early. BUT BUT BUT.. I couldn’t stop thinking of the luggage bag!!! Eventually, I went back to LaForet again for SWIMMER and I finally decided that I could use one for my shopping adventures / shopping service here in Tokyo. I found out that it had medium and small sizes so I was SO DELIGHTED!! I bought the medium-sized one and boy, it never felt so good to walk around Harajuku with a kawaii luggage bag (for shopping!!).
FRESH FROM SWIMMER!! SO CUTE!! Black x Pastel colors
