Snippets of My Daily Life in Saitama + Matcha Love + Kawaii Market 2016!

Hi everyone!

Just finished today’s work so here I am, blogging again! Hehe! 🙂

Hope you don’t mind me sharing lots of photos from my daily life. I’ve been feeling like everything’s become a routine lately so I try to document the unique moments of my days instead.

Fact: I usually just buy hot green tea drinks (for lunch) & I try to shy away from flavored ones .. but this one caught my eye.

I love this hot lemonade from Family Mart!


Plum blossoms are starting to bloom here in Saitama. Will be meeting up with a friend this Saturday for some ume / plum blossom viewing! I can’t wait!

My go-to snack when I’m super hungry at work: Fami Chiki!

Whenever I’m in saving up mode, I just buy a 100+ yen famichiki & plain rice from the kombini. And that would be my breakfast / lunch! 🙂


Had some free time yesterday after finishing my expected work. Here’s my mobile creative station! ^^


Passed by my favorite store within our area.. Okashi Machioka! They’re currently selling these matcha snacks / sweets / chocolates!


Pocky Matcha, Chocopie Matcha.. and Meiji Almonds Matcha. These are my 5-star recommendations if you are a Matcha lover like me!

Lovely mini plates I’ve spotted while window-shopping in a nearby mall.


Craving for takoyaki? Try Gindaco / Gindako’s! They have the BEST TAKOYAKI ever.

And look, their green tea drink packaging is also cute. Omg Japan why




Interesting Japan trivia time yay ~

Researching for Our Kawaii Tokyo book. Here’s a page from “Hello Kitty’s Guide to Japan in English and Japanese” book.

I really want the strawberry instax mini 8+!

Is it just me but whenever I find something that I like (but I don’t have any plans in purchasing it), taking photo/s of it makes me feel like I’ve already bought it. Haha so weird :))
