Saw this huge Gudetama plushie! I first thought, “Wow, life-size gudetama!!” lololol.

The image of gudetama inside my mind would always be the lazy man in yellow suit :)))

Hyperreality by Josiah Chua + Kawaii Hunt in Kiddyland

Hello everyone! Good evening from Japan! : )

Just want to share a quick photospam post. Dunno if this would be quick though haha.

I’ve been clearing out all the photos from my 2/3 yr. old iPhone (that used to have 20k photos omg hahaha) and I know that I am months late for this post but I just want to share the amazing POKEMON HEAVEN collection by a talented designer friend / supporter of Kawaii Philippines, Josiah of Josiah Chua Label! Josiah helped out last KIM2 as a Harajuku Fashion Show sponsor. <3 I first met him when Ashley gathered all of her friends in one gathering hahaha.

Two nights ago, we all had a dinner at Harajuku (together with Misato-san, Kelly and Shoushi.. too bad Ashley’s in Kobe, Elleanor & Gervin couldn’t make it). And Josiah, being his usual kind self, bought TACOS for everyone after he lined for Taco Bell Shibuya opening for 3 hours! I think he deserves some applause for that haha. I remember lining up for 2 hours for Little Twin Stars cafe before… and I felt like I was slowly turning Japanese. I think that Japanese people are so patient when it comes to queuing! Haha *salute*

And this is why this deserves to be on this blog. Precious tacos :))

Of course, we had to take a group photo (Shoushi already left) after we finished all the food.

I can’t remember which month was this, but before my Filipino friends and I went to Kawagoe, we first stopped by at Bunka to see for ourselves his collection (lots of kawaii creatures huhuhu).

This fashion collection, entitled “Hyperreality” revolves around the concept and visual elements of Superflat. The collection extracts visual elements such as the usage of Japanese katakana characters found in the Pokémon manga series as sound effects expressing the atmosphere of the manga frame. The lines found in the dynamic manga frames are later incorporated as the garment’s style lines and seams. The concept of Superflat in Fashion is to incorporate and translate Japanese subcultural elements into fashion objects/garments and propose fresh and unexpected combinations of fashion and the Japanese subculture.

Last of 2014 & Start of 2015

Hello everyone! Konnichiwa ~ 

For today’s post, it’s going to be another overdue post, haha! Don’t worry, this one will be filled with photos~

I’m so surprised that my bandwidth / 4G-hungry posts are usually the highly requested here on the blog. :O As always, I really appreciate everyone’s patience just to get the whole post to load, haha!

Ohhh.. also~ I’m currently planning something for Rainbowholic (as a blog and a brand at the same time), and I’ll be posting a survey here one of these days. Yoroshiku ne! : )

So let’s start! 😀

Last December 31, I spent the last day of my 2014 with a good friend (hi Justin) and his family!

It felt like a déjà vu because it was almost.. 2 years (?) ago when I also met them for the first time here in Tokyo.

*time flies wow*

IMG_4542_cb

We agreed to meet up at 9 in the morning. Or was it 10? I forgot haha!

I had extra time so I went around Harajuku to take some photos for updates ~
