Japan trip: Dotonbori & foods (part III)


Dotonbori is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Osaka. I still don’t know why. But, I think I know the feeling it gives. This place is very lively with all the lights, shops, and people. Continue reading



I get easily obsessed. That’s why I don’t want to start to watch or read something new. For instance, if I like a new song, I will play that song over and over every day and night until I got sick of it (you can even ask my sister or those who follow me on spotify). I will look for information about the artists, download pictures, blog/post about it, buy merchandise, buy some things that remind me of such, read companion books/magazines, light candles in triangle formation and offer a live sheep. Of course the last one is a joke (it should be in pentagram). I think the only thing I don’t do is to write fanfiction. I think I’m too lazy/not dedicated enough to write a story.

Japan trip: Osaka Castle (part II)


Osaka Castle

If you could only have one day to go to Osaka, Japan, I would recommend you to see Osaka Castle! (But why would you only go there for one day? I wouldn’t judge).  It is the must-see destination in Osaka.

Osaka Castle is a symbol of Osaka, which has been handed down through the dramas in history to the present day. It is widely known as an emblem of the power and fortune of Hideyoshi Toyotomi. Continue reading

Japan trip: Kansai airport to Tsuruhashi (part I)


Up in the clouds

On the 16th of December 2016, I went to Japan with my sister Patrice and my mother. It was a sudden plan, and I caused it.

I have been longing to go there since I was a teenager. I was a weeabo–there I admit it! I LOVE everything related to Japan. I self-study Hiragana & Katakana (I’m still working on my Kanji). I was so obsessed with animes, mangas, Jpop, Japanese dramas, Japanese foods, and the Japanese culture. I even went to anime convention (when it was still underground).  Notice the past tense? I am not that into it anymore, but there is still a part of me that continues the fondness of it. My fangirl level on the scale of 1-10 was 11 back then; now it’s like 7.

🗾 It's like I stepped into a manga or Japanese drama.

Sometimes I want to tell people that I have a twin sister so that they won’t get confused when I don’t get friendly and social. I mean, I don’t hate you or something. I’m just not made for social interactions specially if there is a sea of people. I get drowned. Though I need to have a friend or two, that’s it. Three, maximum. lol I’m kidding. I also don’t initiate a conversation. But if you talk to me, by all means, I will listen and talk to you. There is probably–no, I’m sure of it–90% chance that I was not aware that you might want to talk to me. Why would you, right? But believe me when I tell you: I like that you started a conversation.
