Finally got the time to upload these photos~! It's been two (or more??) weeks since I've returned to Japan.. and a LOT has happened already.
Energy, come to meeee..
Arrived at Narita at almost 12PM? Tokyo had a snowstorm days before and many tourists got stranded in the airport.
My brother and his family came to pick me up and my cousin (who will be working with us now!) <3
We weren't able to get home straight and had a mini roadtrip instead...
Reuniting with my sis-in-law Claire and Chisa!
Of course, I missed POCKY the most!! Haha!
The King of All POCKY :O
Why coffee in Japan is so much cooler. Advertising, you are doing it right. Haha!

For my favorite "Kawaii Lifestyle" brand, SWIMMER!
Japanese school girls "Kawaii" uniform “LucyPop”
LucyPop came to the Philippines last month (thanks Big in Japan PH!) and Kawaii Philippines had the opportunity to get to know the brand!
Check out the feature we did for them here.
I was busy fixing my papers + moving out and didn't have the chance to personally meet the people behind LucyPop. >_<
They also prepared a "Welcome Card" for me! So very thoughtful! <3
If only I could become a real highschool girl again.. haha..
Every product is really made of QUALITY! When I was dressing up, I did inspect the stitches and all (because Anne told me too, haha).
And to my surprise, there is really some Japanese technology magic happening with the skirt! It's adjustable!!
First time to encounter such thing with zippers and skirts, hehe~
NHK World Kawaii International also featured this brand in their last episode! <3
Those skirts <3
Please check out their facebook:
The brown bag definitely caught my heart, haha!
Lucy Pop is all about kawaii school girl uniforms, and the brand wants to address the needs of teenagers who love fashion by creating something that is a “little bit different from everybody else.”
Lucy Pop hopes to show kawaii girls the world of cute, fun, and cool.
My brother / manager / translator saying something funny to the LucyPop team :)))
It's funny how I used to work for my brother.. then he works with me.. & now he works for me. KIDDING hehehe~
Thank you Eric兄さん！
Wearing my favorite cottoncandy blue bow!!
Sadly, highschool was.. 8/9 years ago? Ooops... haha. :))
Thank God for brands such as LucyPop, kawaii fans like me can have the opportunity to feel much younger, haha!
With Ayaさん, Futoshiさん and Yukieさん of LucyPop! Thank you for the thoughtfulness, time, and yummy dinner treat!
