This will be a heavy post of what happened over the week. Can’t believe that it’s Friday again! I’m so happy that I get to rest… it’s so cold outside! SAMUIIII 😥 毎日学校上行くときは大変だよ！
Last monday after class, I headed to Shibuya for Caro’s goodbye bowling party before she leaves for L.A. Thank you Mori-san for teaching me tricks how to become a pro bowling athlete by using both of your hands! I have a future in this sport. My broken nail agrees.
BUT WAIT! I saw a Beard Papa’s branch!
HUHUHU IT WAS TOO SINFUL… I wanted another pan but I must control myself.
As usual, I went inside a game center first while waiting for others to arrive.
I spent 400 yen (100 yen per game) watching the UFO catcher and the universe conspire by not grabbing tightly on any of this… 400 yen, I can have a delicious bento with that! HUHU
And it was a great and fun experience. I always love talking about random stuff with the people who work hard for Tokyo Fashion. Got to meet Master Will Robb too!
And because I was such in a hurry, I left my Electric Blue stars (sounds like a Katy Perry song, haha) doc martens! Went home with a new pair of bowling shoes?!
Thanks Timu & Mori-san for keeping my shoes for me! See you guys and let’s trade shoes! : )))
A Regular Day of a Japanese Language Student in Tokyo
Since I gained a few pounds from last week’s overdose on carbs, I’ve been trying my best to eat healthy (and still delicious) food. Here’s wheat bread and vitamin jelly for.. BEAUTY? : ))
My desk one early morning in school.
I’m currently reading successful brand stories, hoping to get fresh insights. I’m not really much of a brand person, but I look up to these designers and brand managers.
From a magazine. Here are spring colors in cutest descriptions for you!
Please add cottoncandy blue? :”)
My shoes from Swimmer that I got for 1000 yen only before!
Colorful days are ahead
I usually see this kind of kitkat from Narita Airport, so I was surprised to see a box of this available from a convenient store! A bit pricey but it’s rare, so Kaila must buy…
I was craving for veggies and spaghetti… so I cooked my first tomato spaghetti with chunky tunas and mushrooms! :yay:
In one of our classes, we were given story books in Japanese.
It was hard to read from left to right, but I managed! I’m so happy that I could understand everything @_________@ Hard work pays off!
Alice in Fantasy Book: An Alice in Wonderland-themed Restaurant in Shinjuku!
My friend Mariane shared a link about an Alice-themed restaurant in Tokyo many months ago… and I didn’t forget about that. :333:
Last week, my Thai classmate Tobu-san told me she went to an Alice-themed resto in Shinjuku recently. Upon knowing that, I began bringing my own food to school to save up for an expensive meal and Rabbit hole experience. I can’t believe that I’m almost living about a year here in Japan and I haven’t gone here! @___@
Next: Ginza’s version! LOOK AT THIS huhu SO PERFECT. I want to go here with full Alice costume? : )))))
Pictures are grainy and dark because I only had my iPhone with me. The book you see up there is the menu!
As you can see, it’s very expensive. And they have “charm fee” or fee for just coming there… it was 500 yen per person! @_@
Very welcoming! Pop-up graphics for an introduction~
Yummy fruit jellies while waiting for our meal.
Took (dark) photos while waiting…
The Shinjuku version is small compared to the one in Ginza. I must go there!
Everyone was busy taking photos of themselves… Dawa had a hundred or so.
My Dessert <3 OISHIIIIIIIII~!
We were early for our reservation in the restaurant so my friend who likes Purikura as well had a quick Purikura date! Dawa and Shoro shopped instead.
Took vain purikura photos with Chou-san~
Creepy eye magnifier! Haha
Here’s my third for my Purikura Fridays! It’s technically cheating but I can’t spend money anymore, right? Haha~
Friday and Chocolates~!
During one of our classes, our sensei talked about the Valentine tradition here in Japan. Every season makes everyone spend on each other! In Japan, the girls are the ones who give chocolates to their male friends. It’s a crazy season here!
Cute suggestions from a chocolate catalogue..
Seems like from Village Vanguard?
Carlo would love the car-shaped chocolates! Haha
My lunch says hi. The egg looks sad.
After lunch, our teachers brought us to Hanazono Jinja! A 20-minute walk from Bunka.
Every February the third is “Setsubun”. It’s a bean-throwing ceremony performed to drive away all the evils from last year. I also got beans after the ceremony. Hello, snacks!
After the ceremony, they gave out special bags from different sponsors. I got three ramen noodles! Yay for free food~ I love how generous the Japanese government is!
I stopped by at a local drugstore here in Urawa, and found this Hello Kitty x Maybelline Hyper Curl Volume Mascara! I tried it out and immediately fell in love with it!
Hope that was an interesting blog post! Did I just over-share?! And is there such word..? Hahaha!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
