Picturing Fall and Stuff

I want to share with you guys some amazing photos that I took. Well not really that. Just amazing nature in photos. I won't credit that to me. Haha

It's autumn. Also known as my favorite season of all time. So I ventured and took photos that is relevant. Not this one of course. 

Also not relevant to fall but I took a picture with it anyways. 

It's getting colder and colder each day and to be honest, I wasn't wearing enough dress to get by this day but whatevs. 

Now can we just stop and appreciate fall together? I can't express how I love fall. And I would never be able to. 

Fall Dust 

This is actually a Sakura Lane and in spring, which is probably my second fave season, I would be happy to show it all to you. 

Selfie before leaving the lane. 

View from my terrace. It's just so nice to see it changing colors day by day. I love nature!! Truly amazing. That's all!!

15 Eventful Days of Mum in Japan

My mom came to Japan and these happened. It may have been a short trip but I probably wouldn't have done the same amount of things if I were alone. Anyways. Let the story begin.

We signed up for a Costco membership card which cost us more to pay for the membership than the things we bought.

My mum is so good at asking people to take pictures of us so we have quite a few of that to treasure. This is before the hair cut. 

I had a haircut!! Also, I colored my hair lighter which kind of disappointing because I didn't have the exact color that I want but happy at the same time because the stylist said that I now have a base color which will make my hair color more prominent the second time I color it. 

We went to my mum's friend's house which was a relief for me because the last time I went here, the baby boy and I weren't exactly friends but now, it seems like we're in a good terms and he kept playing with me whilst he's insulting my momma hahaha.

Went to Machida and bought some boots and a gift for my cousin's birthday.

Went to lunch with my bestfriend of 11 years and man it was awesome. 

We went to Kamoi to go to Lalaport but first ate lunch at Sukiyaki which is my mum's favorite "fast food" restaurant because of their Cheese Gyudon which I am quite confused of but I guess I like it.


No one to take my picture here before so I'm happy my mom came to the rescue. 

For some reason, this place is not as gorgeous as it is without all the cherry blossoms. But beautiful still. 

Even though it's kinda freezing, we had a scoop of ice cream each because we're weird like that. 

It would have been prettier if there were Sakura. Oh well papel. 

Picture of mum with her favorite fruit of all time! My mom kept telling me to post this on Facebook and I was like, yeah yeah I'll do it but we all know I ain't doing that. Sorry mom. 

We then went to Disneyland!! I kept telling her I would totally go on my own and she told me to wait for her to come to Japan because she would go with me and it did happen. 

I revisited Sakuragicho which is like my favorite place as of the moment.

We had lunch with our friends. Yay for friendship!! Also, the food was so yummers. Can I just say that I ordered some alcoholic drink in front of my mom? Hahaha I actually didn't know it was an alcoholic drink because I was only able to read the "lemon" part of it but when Hidems ordered it, she was like, "and 1 lemon scotch" WINNER IN LIFE!! 

Then we went to Hachioji which was kind of our finale and yeah it was all good! We ate Takoyaki and shopped for pasalubongs! 

It was an awesome 2 weeks. I know a lot of my sleep time was stolen but you know, still awesome! Can't complain.

Sakuragicho Yet Again

It was so nice to be back. I so remember my first trip and my Nepali friend asked me when will "fall" be witnessed and I was like, around November. We went there the last week of October and we witnessed its beginning. I love fall! 

As always, it was so beautiful. Like, I can't stop admiring how beautiful this town is. Can't actually wait until the Sakura season starts. 

The Cosmo Clock selfie. 

Really gorgeous view. Oh also, they were like having a wedding celebration on the other side and they (guests) were like waving at us for some reason and my mom was like, if they would call me in, I'm definitely going.  

In front of the World Porters which is quite a small shopping place with all the good stuff in. My mom was like, uh oh! Credit card is in danger again. Hahaha I just love my mom. Would definitely watch Hunger Games here. 

Minato Bridge picture. My mom just thought it's a brilliant place to take a picture here and I was like, meh okay. 

Here's what I'm talking about. I remember this specific tree because when I first visited with friends, that Nepali friend asked me whilst pointing at this tree. Because there were like some yellow leaves falling off from it that time. Now it's life brownish-red of some sort. 

Then of course. 

Porters selfie. 

Then we went to Cosmo World. A little amusement park across the mall. Quite an unremarkable place to take a picture but hey. It looks like I am wearing a crown.

I was then able to solve a mistery this day. I asked my mom why she likes taking pictures with the vending machine and she was like, because there's no such thing in the Philippines. Why though? There should be some in the Philippines. 

And I swear there are a lot more picture of my mom with the vending machine. 

The decoration was quite festive with all the lights on and stuff. I don't remember visiting the place in the past so I don't know if it's always like that. 

I super like this picture. 

Then they have that heart thingy and you know! Must take pictures. 

For some reason, my mom looks awkward. Hahaha

Then we were lucky to be able to have our picture taken by a lovely couple. 

At this point, we haven't eaten anything proper yet and when my mom saw this crepe store and she knows I love my crepes so she pointed it to me and voila.

This crepe store's crepes' name are super long that even though you can read them, you'll just end up saying its corresponding number. 

Then we ventured on further Cosmo World. What I liked about the place is that it's free for those who doesn't like to ride. You can just like walk and eat and lurk. 

Always a beauty. 

Then there's like a place where there's  Christmas stuff but yet again I don't know if it's supposed to symbolize Christmas. Well Christmas for me at least. 

There were like houses too which sometimes doesn't really have anything in it but some like have portrait workshop, candy store, Game Center, attraction even. 

They do have like Ice World which I think is inappropriate since it was kind of cold the time we visited. 

Going back already. Yeah it was really an awesome place. Definitely my favorite place to hang out to.
