Mum Thinks I Need These 3 (2.0)

Late post. Sorry na. Actually this is supposed to be the 3rd installment under this theme but then it would be unfair for my mum if I would do just that because before this, I got what seems to be 3 or 4 packages that I (planned but) didn't (too lazy to) blog about so 2.0 it is! Fair enough!

Size 40 because my feet are wider than the usual. Generally speaking, I'm wider than the usual so whatever. Hahaha 

Yas! Thanks,mum. 

This looks like something I would wear everyday. Yay! 


Green Mangoes!! It also came with Bagoong!

How I Celebrated my 25th Bday

Celebrated my Birthday in this place 3 years in a row and I'm not even complaining. 


Sometimes I wonder why I'm still in this company but you know, I guess it's because I'm well taken care of and that I have these aunties that are all so different but are all very protective of me and in one way or another, I'm very thankful that I get to work with them. Most of them are twice my age and they have been through a lot. I could definitely learn a lot from them. 

Rib Eye

I did what I do best. Eat a lot alone. LOL. This is after I bought myself a gift at Grandberry Mall in Minami-Machida. That's how I roll now. The Escargot was so good by the way.


I had sushi with tita May, Hidemi, and the little one. Man, it was one epic night. So epic! So on my way home, I was so bothered by the glare that I was seeing and so I thought I would wear my glasses and so I did. And then shortly after, I found 20,000 yen on the floor!!! And it was not like I found a wallet or anything. It was just 2 pieces of 10,000 yen bill on the floor beside the parking lot kind of half-way from the sushi place and home. And no one was around so it was not like the person who dropped it was nearby. I reckon it was some drunkard who dropped it since it was already about 11 pm that time. So I picked up the bills, and then called Tita May, we met up again, and I split the blessing. To whoever dropped the money, sorry for your loss but rest assured that the money will be put to good use. Thank goodness for glasses. 

Birthday Cake 2.0

Can we all just be silent for a minute? This cake has definitely been through a lot before it got to my table. But it was still delicious. Thank you tita May and Hidemi. I finished this cake alone in like 2 days. What diet?

Thanks, Twitter. 

I got this mail in January and you know, classic mom moves. And in fairness, I really didn't open because I have strong self-control like that. 

Gift for myself.

I just thought I'd give myself something because it's been a while since I did that.   No regrets! 

From the Company 

That is all! I've had a very peaceful, subtle and very changing celebration. And if you know me, I'm all about that. Ciao!

New Hair, New Life?

Yes mga bes, I decided to cut my hair short again. I know that I'd regret this later but you know, it's been doing me good so far. 

And yes, I had it in a new place yet again. This is the best place I've been so far. Or so I think. I booked 3 weeks ahead of time and I was accomodated on time! I have nothing against busy salons but if you're going to say I'm booked at a certain time, please know that my lazy ass would appreciate if you would provide me with your good service then and there. Thank you very much. 


The main reason I wanted this haircut is because I feel like my almost waist length hair then was getting out of control. It looked super nice but deep inside, it was so broken that I had to cut it! OMG, life! But yeah. 


I feel like a new person after. I also literally just cut a few years worth of hair so I don't feel complety 25. I'm just in denial of course. LOL. 


As for my new hair color, like I always do, I told them to make it lighter and I guess they can't move much higher the chart so there's that. 


The treatment was so nice I must say. It made my so uncooperative hair nice for a couple of washes I think. But you know, my hair is rude as eff so it was like back to what it is shortly after. I'm not complaining though! That's just my hair. The cut made all the difference! Will probably cut it again soon! Probably. 


Anyways, for the cut + color + treatment combo, I only paid 8,900 yen like it said on the website. Probably the cheapest price that I paid for such services. I might actually just stick to this salon now I know that my time and money would be so well spent here so yeah, ciao! 

Caretta Shiodome Illumination 2016

This may be the most beautiful/spectacular Illumination that I've been so far. It's also by far the smallest venue and I was like meh when I first got there without all the lights and all that. I was not that impressed when they turn on the lights even but man, they have a show and that's what makes it so beautiful. 

I found out about this place whilst watching Terrace House on Netflix and I thought it'd be bigger but yeah whatevs. Also, can I just say that I've been really loving Terrace House in general? So I was like, must go! This is the place Arisa Ohata rejected Arman Bitaraf! Because WTF! Arman should have chosen my girl Mizuki. Okay enough fangirling and also I know Arman is already happy with my homegirl Masako. 

I seriously can't get over the illumination show that I watched it 3 times. It was so cold that time so thank goodness the show is only like 5 or 10 minutes apart I don't remember which but I remember it's only a short interval between shows. 

Also, during the intervals, they had a picture taking sesh where the lady asked the people to fall in line so she could take a photo of the guests. 


I highly recommend you go to this place! No wonder why it's top picked by Illumination enthusiasts. I never thought I'd say this but thank goodness for my Tokyo job! It gets me to places conveniently. Ciao!

Shinjuku Illumination 2016

I may have already mentioned here (or elsewhere) how I feel about Shinjuku. But you know, that didn't stop me from going there anyways. TBH, I still feel a little creeped out by it but whatever, you know. 


It would have looked cooler in my eyes if I haven't seen the Meguro first. 

Rose Gold and Gold lights

I don't know if this is just coincidence but it was so cool! having them lined up like that.  

I went after work and was surprised that it's kind of like the one in Meguro. It's not Sakura Pink though. It's a combination of what looks like Rose Gold and Gold lights which is a very subtle twist. I thought it's be the same colorful lights from 2014 but I guess they do change things a little every year. I should be back! Ciao! 

Yokohama Illumination 2016

Lips as dark as my soul

I went there and took pictures. Man, I can't even with this place. I don't know if I should already be bitter or whatnot. JK! Been there done that. Twice.

I'll never get tired adoring this. So much beauty to even acknowledge the hate.

One regret that I had is that I didn't try their food whilst I was there. Well I was gonna eat somewhere else so I had to control myself lol. The smell of the surroundings is so tempting though. I have to be back next time! They also have the ice skating rink set-up but also didn't try that one. Next time!

The Bell

Also went to Motomachi but none of the shops were still open when I went so that's less the fun I guess so I have to somehow be back next time. I think. 


It was freaking cold that there's barely anyone walking just for fun.

OMG this. This might be my favorite display. Also, I'm playing Coldplay whilst on the trip and man, for some reason, it was so relevant.

The display got exciting actually. It's like already 3D and stuff.
