Went to the Ramen Museum with Sister and Uncle today. :D SO COOL. The set-up was post-War, with old-fashioned game/candy stalls set up amongst the ramen stores.

View from the top. The colors kept changing, following a sped up day.
Candy stall :D The shopkeeper even had an insane amount of blush to portray the stereotypical "young girl."
No pictures of me though. The humidity makes me look like Tim Burton, Part II. -.-

Kamakura again tomorrow with Grandfather to visit the Daibutsu and maybe some temples. :)

So this is the day we went to Harajuku and Shibuya (clever heading right?). Picture spam ahead.

Greeted my Audrey Hepburn on our way out of the Harajuku station. <3

Harajuku. Hehehehe. Condomania (to the far right). Yes, I'm immature.

Outfit: shoes/shorts, UO; socks, tutanna; tank, H&M; crop sweater, TOPSHOP; random jewelry. I really have to get better at taking these kind of photos. Also, you can't see my lion earrings through my frizzy hair. XD The store I was in was REALLY CHEAP. I regret not getting some basics there. DX

Cher store in Harajuku.

Dressing room in Cher. It was SO INTIMIDATING. There were so few people when we were there, and I couldn't grasp the bargain system for the life of me. Add that to Sister's complaining that she didn't want to be there, and the silence in the store, and I was suffering from severe anxiety. Thankfully, I ended up getting what I wanted, plus the eco bags, without regretting anything. Though I kept bothering the staff with questions. They probably thought I was mental. -.-

Cutest dogs EVER.

The outside of Harajuku's Zara. It's two stories and oh so pretty. I love glass buildings. <3

Kinda crowded. Even more people upstairs. The sales here are GLORIOUS. In America where I live, barely anything goes on sale.

Creeper Me with the Cher purchase

Takeshitadori in Harajuku. A street lined with little shops, well-known (from SBY to Paris Kid's) to obscure (at least to me).
Shibuya 109

Creepy creepy poster. Even creepier commercial. Oh, the depths you have fallen Shingo Mamma.

W*C. They didn't have much in stores in the way of new things though. Mostly sale items. And they didn't have any UGLY caps...Or socks. ;_;

SBY. They also have a cafe in the back. I didn't get anything here though, since a store at my local mall carries most of the stuff I like anyway.

That's it for now. Next time: Miyazaki's new movie or Kamakura. Depends what I'm in the mood for. :)

So I've been a bit behind on blogging, so I'm just going to write about separate days in each post, since I forget the progression of events during the summer (...Well...To be honest...Ahem...More like all the time but...).

THIS DAY was the day we went into Yokohama to visit a store that Uncle though we'd like. Which, unfortunately, we didn't. Basically, it was unnecessarily expensive (the clothes weren't anything special) so we chilled around the floors, and eventually went to eat.

The station

A cool store we found, Zakka-ish

Piggy :)

More pretty things

A bit up-scale overall for a future collegiate, but the atmosphere and colors made it more than enjoyable. This is what I want my Future House to look like...

YUM. Lunch.

Sister's lunch. She always gets ramen XD

Oufit: skinnys and shoes, UO; shirt, W*C; bag, Harajuku Lover's; assorted jewelry

More Topshop porn.

Sister hiding from the Creeper Cam. BUT SERIOUSLY, I was tempted to grab the whole rack of shoes in the store and run. I almost bought black strappy ones that were extremely reduced, but they only had one size left and it was too big. TOO BIG. Usually my humongo feet can't fit into any popularly produced ones (made around size 5~6), but alas they didn't help me when I thought they'd finally be useful. I feel like Alice. Too big or too small ;_;

Zara gets. The studded crop sweater, whose studs have been FALLING OFF. I've had to super glue them back on D:
Skirt with swimmer print. You can also see my hair cut better in this photo. I tried posting close-ups but Blogger is being dumb :/

Close up.

That's all for now. Later :)

So for the past two days I've been bumming around in my room, basically only eating instant noodles and raw veggies. This kind of describes my mood:

Except a little moodier. Sister is like the white bear (keep forgotting her name), bothering me inbetween watching korean dramas, and the chick is like my grandparents, asking Sister why I barracade myself up there. Oh, this is Sister's pillow by the way.

When I get like this, the only thing to do is leave me alone and let me figure it out. Maybe it's in part because the room looks like this:

So I think I'm just going to start cleaning up, and hope my mood evaporates.

Tomorrow I'm going to Yokohama (Station) to see this store Uncle says is really "cute." Before that, I'm going to go get my hair cut...Something I always manage to screw up. This time, I'm going to bring a magazine though! After I find a hairstyle I want...After I clean up...Yeah...

So, pictures of that soon.

OH AND BEFORE I GO OFF TO BE PRODUCTIVE, he also said we can check out Cher on Thursday. So, things to look forward to. :)

Listening to: Colorblind. Counting Crows.

A few days ago Mother, Uncle, and I went to Chinatown for a dim sum buffet, and to get new glasses, which are SO CHEAP IN JAPAN. It's actually a little ridiculous. I got glasses, plus a complementary exam, for 4,000 yen (a little under $40). We even got both our glasses an hour after we ordered them (which is odd, even for Japan, so they must have a laser cutter in the back or something so they don't have to send it out). Last year (when I had to get more contacts), I had to pay around $150 for a glasses exam and a contacts exam (which is really just a piece of paper with my prescription). It did come with free glasses, and a thing of contacts to tide me over though. So maybe it wasn't toooooo bad. XD

Sideways panda that Uncle and Mother though was creepy, but I thought was kind of cute.

ALSO, I dyed my hair. Maybe not the best picture of it though....


Uncle and Me with Panda Kitty :)

Yesterday, Mother left for America, so it's just me and my sister for awhile. So, the next day, we went to Sakuragichou to have a picnic and shop, since we recently learned how to get there by subway (it takes around 10~15 minutes and is one stop away from Yokohama Station. Hopefully, Sister will stop being a wimp and go exploring with me there soon DX).

It reminded me of the Greek Colosseum, though the steps look more like a granite wall in the picture.

Cute oufitttts (says the creeper with the camera). But this was unintentional; I was really trying to take a picture of the bridge).

WHAT I WORE: top, min plume; shorts, UO; tank, Honey's; sunglasses (THAT I LOST...NOt sure how or when ;_;), Aeropostle

The no sleeve cardigan thingy that I ended up buying at Cutie Blonde. Half off :D

The ice cream Sister made me get her at Tully's. The waffle looking desert is actually cake. Pleasant surprise.

Glittery shoes.....

We actually got one because they were placed at the very edge. All you had to do was put money in and it fell over XD

Toy Story 3 promotional poster with Sister. I hope it's good.

After the ice cream and World Porter's shopping, we wandered around Queen's Square and found out Zara was having a super sale! I wanted to do Purikura but the place was closed for some reason :(


A see-through assymmetrical top

Slightly cropped zebra sweater, with doleman sleeves

Washed out skirt.

That's it for now. More later ;)
