A Super Kawaii Time at Kiiroitori Diary x Tower Records Cafe in Tokyo 💛

Hi everyone!

Yesterday, my fellow stationery addict friend Knatt, her little sister and I had a kawaii treat at a limited Kiiroitori Diary x Tower Records Cafe. It’s located just a few steps away from Kiddyland Harajuku / Omotesando.

The cafe will run until September 10, 2017. If you are in Tokyo, I’d suggest lining up for this! 🙂

We didn’t see the line so when we went straight to the cafe, the staff assisted us where to queue. As expected, the waiting system was so organized.

As much as I love kawaii cafes, I’ve been training myself to not crave for too much sweets lately.

And is it so weird that I haven’t been to the famous Kawaii Monster Cafe ever? I just can’t imagine eating all the food coloring and everything, haha! That’s why I got so relieved when I saw their menu and found out that they offer taco rice, which is one of my faves, haha!

Every corner is instagram-friendly so if you love taking photos, this place is really nice 🙂

If you started to read my blog years before, you would know how obsessed I was with Rilakkuma!

For some reason, it brought some nostalgia back haha, lol. I’ve already passed the crown to my super Rilakkuma fan friend, Knatt ~ :)) I’m a Gudetama fan convert now, lol.

First Week in Japan + Kawaii, Peko, Pocky, Rilakkuma! + Cutest Japanese Schoolgirl Uniform “LucyPop”

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.  :what:

Energy, come to meeee..  :blank:

Arrived at Narita at almost 12PM? Tokyo had a snowstorm days before and many tourists got stranded in the airport.  :blank:

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!

 

Had yummy sushi~

Japanese fashion magazines for inspiration <3

I was so surprised to see Peko x Hello Kitty collab!! AND GIANT RAINBOW POCKY!!

Ramen and Cupcake Time with My Creative Team

Yesterday, one of my dreams in life (to be a Creative Director in a somewhat-agency) came true.

I finally had a not-so-formal formal meeting with my lovely teammates (who are also my Kawaii Lovin’ friends)! We’re just a small team of Kawaii (Japan)Lovers but I believe that each of us is great in our own forte. Yayyy.. small but terrible team! :)) Terrible in another sense, of course, haha!

To commemorate the day, I decided to treat them with yummy ramen from RYU Ramen & Curry (a new restaurant near our area)! Hopefully someday (*next year* *crosses fingers*), I can also bring them to Japan so we can all enjoy eating ramen together there (with MishieWishie flying for us all the way from NY too, haha!). Our angel investor (my brother) has been very supportive of our projects ever since I started JapanLover.me with just ChiChi and Mishie (which gave birth to many ideas).

Even if our budget is super constricted, I am proud to say that we have been maximizing everything that has been given to us! ;__;

:happy:

 

My dreams are getting bigger and coincidentally, I’m meeting people who share the same visions that I do. Amazeballs! ;_;

  

Achievement unlocked! <3

After our 2-hr. stay in the Ramen place, we finally finished the first half of our meeting! :))
