Girl's Night Out @ Shibuya

Image
It's been a while since I hanged out with people my age. I mean, we see each other at work but you know what I mean? Like, hang-out excluding work. So it was really refreshing. 
some spicy soup
It was delicious! It made me miss SoKor a little bit. Okay, a lot! The waiters are actually Koreans and you know, your girl can actually speak very very very little Korean and so I did speak with them in Korean and magic! With all the confusing vowels of the Korean language, who knew I'm pronouncing things right? 
my crew
 I had so much fun! 

Also, we played with filter apps non-stop. Like, so kiddy! You know, we're all relatively young but in our group, you kinda know the difference. The 25s and 27 are talking about life, 23 being soooo naughty and sometimes rude, 21 being neutral and quiet, and the 17 being shy and observing everyone but mainly coping up with 23's naughtiness. Our differences make us bond like nothing else. Man, you learn something everyday. Holler from 25 and 21

Ueno Hanami 2017

Image
Ueno Sakura Viewing. When I went there, I confirmed I was a bit late for all of it but it was still hella gorgeous! But late nonetheless. Because of my heavy sched, it's either I'm too early, or a bit late. What is my life?

This baby pink Sakura is gorgeous AF! It's also the first time I saw this. I guess traveling alone makes you see things a little better. 
Yas!

I wasn't actually alone all time. I was to meet friends but as per usual, I don't really like meeting up in Ueno because this already happened 2 years ago and it happened again. Man, when will we learn from our mistakes? I'll tell you in a bit. 

Ueno was busy. Just like it is every year. But it was also pretty. Just like it is every year. 

Ueno will always be dear to my heart. My family and I used to go there. A place of memories, I guess. 

Friends! After so many change of meet-ups, we finally met. I literally pulled my friend's hair when I saw them because I was already kind of irritated but meh…

Nakameguro Hanami 2017

Image
Nakameguro
After work escapade. This one I went to after my night work so it was quite early in the morning when I arrived and it was so perfect for a morning walk. I mean, imagine all the Sakura trees greeting you in the morning. 

Nakameguro like I mentioned before is probably my favorite place for Hanami. I mean, probably only because there weren't a lot of people yet when I went because that's just who I am. 

Truth be told, I kind of thought I'd be missing Nakameguro again this year because I don't really have much time and all that but I'm really glad I was able to go! I think I was actually a bit late with all the flowers kind of already falling. Man, it was still beautiful though.

I'd probably go next time and feast properly. Probably. 

I will never get tired of this place ever. Unless you find me a workplace in here. Hahaha I remember saying the same thing about my workplace in Tokyo. Oh well. 

As per usual, I went to Mokē because you k…

Yoyogi Park Hanami 2017

Yoyogi Park
I went here on my way to work as planned but then just thinking about how these trees only come to life one week and a few days in a year, I was like, no ma'am, you're not gonna settle for less. 

This park was actually recommended by my manager because she said it amazed her the first time she went and I was like, okay, must check it out because it's near work and all that so yeah. 

Little Sakura Tree seems to be getting a lot of attention and I can definitely see why. They're so cute AF. 

I'm so glad that despite all the busy things that I am involved to right now, I still managed to squeeze in time to adore nature.
central park vibes
Not that I've ever been to New York. Maybe soon. 
gorgeous my kind of crown
So yeah, after work, I decided I go back. And it was full with people and trash. Meh. 

I actually went back to possibly eat Okonomiyaki but I saw this Potato Butter and I bought that instead. 
Jyaga Butter
I mean, I'm a sucker for carbs, …

Confused Soul

Short hair don't care. Can I just say that when I was at work the other day, I wore a red lipstick with this hair and my co-worker was like, "broken-hearted ka ba?" Oh no my dear. I'm everything opposite of being heartbroken. Random story, I left  my somehow everyday lipstick at the vanity thingy at work and asked this same friend to find and keep it for a while and for some reason, we didn't meet until the other day and in between those days, my manager came to me concerned and asked if I were sick or like not feeling well because you know, apparently I looked like it. Pale girls problem. Not the first time I heard of this though. I swear my mom tells me I look dead without lipstick.  

Funny because I thought (and insisted!) I am significantly younger than my cousin and bestfriend. It turns out that at a certain point in a year, the three of us are the same age. Lunar Eclipse ang peg! 

OMG the things we say and do when we're 21. I wish I could be 21 again. It…

13 Reasons Why | Review

Opinions were made after watching the said episode so if there were changes about how I feel etc. oh well. 
Tape 1, Side A: Justin Foley. "You are the beginning of the end." I can't blame Hannah, Justin is smokin' hot.  But she could do so much better. Also, he's a jerk. 
Tape 1, Side B: Jessica Davis. "You know what you did, don't you?" New kids. Friends. Classic. But really, Jessica? Believing something without asking your bestfriend is completely bull. I'm happy that I have a bestfriend I can talk things about and stuff. 
Tape 2, Side A: Alex Standall. "If you could, would you take it back?" Apparently, he caused the hurricane. Also, I learned that I have the same butt as Hannah. I don't consider it much as a problem though. 
Tape 2, Side B: Tyler Down. "I'll never know why you did what you did." Oh if it's really you who betrayed Hannah, it's not love, dear. 
Tape 3, Side A: Courtney Crimsen. "You are just…

10 Days Behind

I've completed my 3 years here in Japan.   I mean, already? It's hard to keep track on time when you're so used to routine. It's like you won't even notice time passing by. It's so wrong in so many ways.

It always rains in this time of the month and it makes me think about things I shouldn't be thinking. Like, my regrets for example. It's accumulating over the years, to be honest. Gives me a lot to think about. There's something about the rain, for sure. 

Luckily, it's spring so all the ugliness gets covered with new beginnings and gorgeous flowers.

It's always a good time for ice cream but there's something about spring that makes you crave for one. This right here is a childhood favorite of mine. 

This is something given to me by a lovely couple. I gave up my seat so they could be seated together and man, she was so greatful. She gave me this juice and even tried to show her ID so that I know she's not some lady try…

Kagetsu Arashi Ramen Review

Image
チャシュ
Delicious. When I decided to do this Ramen Review, I swear I only intended to sample the チャシュ in every restaurant but my lack of imagination in describing things made me put up more items from the menu in hope that I'll be more credible. NOT. 

This place is kind of a go-to place because it's very near my place and it got probably two more branches nearby so it's hard to miss. Also, I love the mildness of the ramen here. 

After work.

Yokohama something something. I don't actually remember the name. The ramen was good! I'm just upset that there wasn't an egg. 

Ramen. My favorite!


There was a point in my life when I liked eating fatty food or like, always craving for it and man, this was like a game changer. So fatty and so good! 

This one was sooo good as well. I realize I'm not a fan of very spicy noodles but this one is bearable and delicious. Something about extremely spicy food is that it's hard to enjoy the food but no problem in this one!!
