#VisitJapanJP Instagram Launch + Our Original Kawaii Washi Tape ?

Hi all!

Before I go to sleep now, I just wanna share some recent events in my life.

Last week, I got to witness a Noh performance for a few minutes, thanks to Instagram Japan. Arigato to Justin for tagging me along (so spontaneous lol)! For the event coverage, head over to his wonderfully crafted website to read the blog entry.

The Luckiest Day in Harajuku: Meeting Cheesie & Audrey + SWIMMER Shopping HAUL!!!

Before anything else…

Watch and share the video!!

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)


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  :blush:

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  😎

AstroGirl Kaila, Cardcaptor Sakura Childhood & Kawaii Haul in the Philippines!

Hello 皆ちゃん!Here’s a very kawaii-packed blog entry to make up for the time I wasn’t blogging~ I have to squeeze in everything in a single post since I will be busy with work projects ;__;

If you haven’t read about my Philippine Trip (Part 1 & 2), you should!

WARNING: Don’t read with an empty tummy!!~ hehe!  :star:



Had to go to Akihabara today for a special meeting with my brother. We stopped over at Ueno as well to relax for a bit.

Today’s look is inspired by one of my favorite oldskool Japan icons, ASTROBOY!


Wore my favorite golden kira kira devil hat from SPINNS! Wore this as well when I was at POP N CUTE!

Why I don’t need rain boots. Shiny black docs will save me from the rain puddle!

A Date with Pikachu at Tokyo Pokemon Center + Harajuku’s Double Tall Coffee Art Cafe + First Sakura Bloom!

Okay Rainbowholic readers, prepare yourselves for a kawaii overload post!  :heart:

I woke up quite early today.. and I was already out in the sun at 9:00 AM! Actually, the sun was hiding, hahaha. :cutee: The rain could not even stop a (mis)adventurer like me!  :star:

If you were following my twitter, you would know that I was having difficulty where to go today! I had so many to-go places in my mind! Doraemon museum, Artsy Shimokitazawa (wanna hunt good stuff from their resale shops), Ghibli (Spirited Away, anyone?!) museum, etc..! There are just too many good places in Tokyo alone and this fact always makes me confused during weekends (only applicable when I have money saved, hehe).


ANYHOOOOOOOO since today was raining, I figured I should just go and wander somewhere easy to find. Unexpectedly, I had a date with Pikachu & Charmander!!  😎

Pokemon Center Tokyo banner at Hamamatsucho Station. Ride the Yamanote Line and you won’t get lost!


It felt a bit nostalgic to see that there are 1000000000+ new pocket monsters.

I remember memorizing the original 152 pokemon better than my multiplication table.
