Cycling: Maiden Voyage

Holidays are really busy times! Thank goodness the hectic schedule is just made of fun ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ

So far, I’ve gone for my part time job twice! It’s been pretty fun. I’m working at a store that sells Japanese confectionery and toys. To me it’s important that I enjoy working, rather than just suffer to earn money. After all, it’s only a part time holiday job ( ・ ω ・ )

The view from my workplace is nice as well.

6th floorrr.

So work-wise, things are going well (o゚▽゚)o Hopefully I’ll be able to continue until the end of the year!

Aside from work, I’ve mostly been going out with my friends though. Today I went to the beach with some of friends (actually five girls and like ten guys), and we went cycling. Sounds like a perfectly normal outdoor activity right? The only hitch was that I didn’t know how to cycle. Yes( ̄へ ̄)A gymnast who had never ridden a bicycle until today. I’m such a joke (´・`)

But I decided to just do it. The girls (in whom I confided my shameful problem with) suggested I get on a couple bicycle with someone else, but somehow I didn’t feel like I should do that. I wanted to try cycling on my own for the first time even if I fell into a ditch.

And in the end I did it! I wobbled near the drains for the first few seconds, but suddenly WHOOSH I managed to pedal away.

For that little milestone in my life which almost everyone else has cleared long ago, I am majorly proud of myself today ( T ▽ T )


Doraemon Cafe


I went out with one of my best friends todaykira kira

For a start, today’s coordinate! It’s inspired by Mai’s outfit here.

Anyway, the two of us visited the Doraemon Cafeーit’s not an actual cafe, but something like a pop up event that’s taking place in the Bonjapan shop. We’re Doraemon loverskirakira

The menu: (if you don’t want to have to squint at it)

1. Mini Assorted Dorayaki
2. Doraemon Choco Cup (I thought this was some sort of pudding but I was wrong)
3. Doraemon Candy (Also mistook this as a gummyーwrong again)
4. Fruity Pudding
5. Orange Soda

Choco cup

There was also a gift that came with the set, a toy Takecopter.

Small lunch, but it was goodnekoWe took our time to eat it because we were watching Doraemon episodes on the TV in the shop. When the meal was over, the staff passed around a drawing pad for customers to leave behind a message or drawing. So we both left behind our own doodlesdiet neko

i’m the one who used purple ink!

It was fun to look around the shop too. There were tons of Japanese candies and toys…I liked all the snacks the best. Especially the gummies! I wanted to buy everything but I didn’t have enough moneyneko

Riho popped up in my head again! Almost bought it, but then I realised it wasn’t a pack of gummies but hard sweets. And I don’t like hard sweetscry

We bought saku saku panda instead! They were chocolatey, and fun to eat. But the remaining two cookies in the box were stuck together and we couldn’t pry them apart without scraping theirs ears off. (how intimate)

After that, we went to another mall. First stop was at the cheap shopping streetkiraAnd you know, we were meant to be shopping for clothes. You can’t eat clothes so I thought I was safe. But when we were at the mall…

Baby castella!

There was a cart and everything selling truckloads of these! Complete with a choice of plain, strawberry, or chocolate…choosing plain was the only sensible choice I made that dayhurhur It was yummy though. Baby castella is one of my favourite Japanese treats.

Clearly most of the day was spent eating. But I walked a lot, so maybe the damage wasn’t so bad. I was really glad that I could spend a lot of time with my friend toolove girl

Best friend ♡

Tomorrow I’m going for the AKB48 concert!loveOne of my online friends is coming to Singapore and she’ll be going for this stage too. At first we arranged to meet before and after the concertーwe bought our tickets separately so it wasn’t certain that we’d get to sit next to each other. But it turned out that we both got the same rowhappyCan’t wait! See you tomorrow ♪



another day of lazying around and enjoying (人´∀`)

here’s today’s Food of the Day:

strawberry ice cream (o゚▽゚)o

yeah, i danced (´ω`*) today i filmed ℃-ute’s momoiro sparkling! i learnt it a long while ago, but i hadn’t been able to film it thanks to exams ρ(・ω・、) so i took the time today to do it! just throw my blanket and pillow to the side, and get on the bed and dance ( ´・ω・)

here’s the end result!

some parts were kind of awkward…but otherwise, it was really fun to dance to. except that the original thumbnail was so annoying because it caught me in this really awkward position ( ̄ヘ ̄) but i fixed it!

i’d be grateful if you watch it!

O Levels are O-ver!

yes, the day has arrived ( ̄▽ ̄)

yesterday i finished my last paper at exactly 3pm. the start of freedom! ☆〜(ゝ。∂)so i took the liberty of sleeping in this morning ♪

ahhhh ( ´▽`) it feels so great! to have nothing to study for anymore, but just play, play, play ☆ this holiday is going to be the best holiday ever. i realised this is the first time in 8 years i don’t have anything to do at all during a holiday ( ̄◇ ̄;)

right after the exam ended yesterday, everyone cheered \(^o^)/ our teachers told us no one was allowed to throw/shred/burn any notes or textbooks inside the school compound. bah (`_´)ゞ

my friends came to my apartment to hang out! we swam for a few hours, it was fun(^O^)splashing around with your best friends knowing the days of joy and freedom stretch ahead of you, it’s one of the best feelings ♪(´ε` )

my swimming gear ~ (with swimsuit underneath)


the hat and sunglasses are really for my friend (the pair of legs behind me) who wanted to suntan for a while (⌒-⌒; )

i enjoyed myself a lot (b'v`●) i’m looking forward to the rest of the holiday! and eating lots of good food.

speaking of food, i ate a purple potato for lunch today (゜▽゜*)♪ it was black at first, but after i steamed it, it became purple!

that’s cool.


cut it up, cut it up ♪


Raining, Running

yesterday the rain was insane!ヾ(。 ̄□ ̄)ツ

after my last tuition class (sniff) i was supposed to go for my job interview, but when i stepped outside the rain was pouring. POURING. i got drenched and it took me a long while before i could find a taxi to ferry me to the shopping mall (´ω`。) and then it took me another long while before i managed to find the shop.

the kitty that kept me company for a while ♥

but it was actually pretty good! really casual stuff, and the person who interviewed me was friendly (●⌒∇⌒●) she didn’t even exactly interview me, it was more like chatting. but hopefully all goes well ☆ can’t wait for the holidays to start!

which is, you know, soon.


yes, tomorrow’s the last paper(`・ω・´)doing my best to the end! the long 3-4 weeks are finally ending. to the friends who encouraged me, thank you ♡ i’m going to have real fun starting tomorrow.


It’s Me Again

hiya ☆〜(ゝ。∂)

it’s been a while since i regularly updated, how frustrating(;_;)either too busy or too lazy or too tired. psh ( ̄ー ̄)

yesterday i ate interesting stuff.


raw kale chips ☆ they dehydrate it and then sprinkle it with a bit of raw cashew crumbles. it actually tasted really nice! so my mom and i sat at the table munching on them quite companionably.

aside from that snack, i made steamed egg for lunch too! chawanmushi, to be specific. it’s easy to make, and i like popping in extra tiny shrimp when my mom isn’t looking ( ̄▽ ̄)

tada ☆


when it first came out of the steamer, it swelled up a lot and was really puffy(^O^☆♪ but then, it shrunk when it cooled.

( ;´Д`)

it’s fun to prepare food ~ (more fun to eat them) this holiday i want to bake cookies or something. last time i tried baking once in a while, but i barely have the time now _φ( ̄ー ̄ ) this has to change soon!

but i’m actually going to get a part time job during the holidays for about a month or so. i’m going to go for a interview tomorrow, so if all goes well i’ll be working part time at a japanese shop (⌒▽⌒)

that’ll be fun. i’ve never worked anywhere before (⌒-⌒; )

Pocket Morning (Apple Cake Ver.) Vol 3

pocket morning (apple cake ver.) again today! just bear with the somewhat monotonous posts for a while more ~ next tuesday i’m free ヾ(*>▽<)ノ゜

What makes you feel relaxed?

lying on bed listening to music, with nothing to do for the day. (o´∀`o)

If you were an athlete, what Hello!Project song would you like to have as your entrance song?

say yeah! motto miracle night – i think it’d really get the spectators pumped! the beginning of the song already gives me shivers sometimes.

Suddenly, in a quiet atmosphere in front of many people, your stomach starts making sounds. What would you do?

hope that people don’t mistake it for farts.

You are Momotarou. You’re heading to Ogre Island to slay some ogres, and along with the dog, monkey and pheasant, you can take one member as well. Who would you take?

chisato! i figure she’d be game enough to take on the ogres, and keep me amused and relaxed on the way.

What’s your favorite song from Mobekimasu?

too many to choose! but okay, if i really had to pick one…℃-ute’s Kiss Me Aishiteru!

If you were to compare yourself to a vegetable, what would you be?

a pea.

When it comes to pizza dough, do you like it fluffy or crispy?

fluffy. i like everything to be fluffy.

How do you act when you start getting sleepy?

i think i start mumbling a lot and rolling/flopping down wherever i go(´ー`)

I hate studying more than than the average person. Could you give me some advice on how to make it more interesting?

pretend that your textbook is a storybook, that’s the trick my teacher taught me ☆

As a part of a game, you’re supposed to enter a scary haunted house with another member. Who would you pick?

maimi! even though she’ll probably be scared too, it feels like she’d still try to protect others. (´▽`)


that’s all for today ( ・ ω ・ )

tomorrow i’m going to do a bit of dressing up.
