Japan’s mister donut

In my opinion, one of the must try if you are in Japan is “Mister Donut”.

Why donut? What’s so special?
Take a look at the donut menu. Doesn’t it convince you that you should give them a try? Hey, they really are as delicious as they looked.

Japan’s Mister Donut group has went through a lot of trouble to ensure their donuts stay competitive in Japan. Not only do the donuts come in all sorts of interesting shapes, the varieties are great and texture is something that you can really enjoy because each type is unique in their own way .And without saying,,, affordable price is what attracts too.

My favorite will be the regular, very popular “Pon de Ring”.
I just can’t get enough with the soft chewy texture. (@^-^@)

How great it would be if calories is the last thing on my mind…(x_x;)

Sanrio goods / Little twin stars

Sanrio popular merchandises

Sanrio/Little twin stars watch

I will bet few people didn’t know about little twin stars.
Born in 1975, they are considered one of the most senior characters in Sanrio group.

Talk about popularity! Can you imagine that new items of Little Twin Stars are still making their way into market after all these 37 years (@^0^@)

It sets me wondering if kids these days know about “kiki & lala”.
But it doesn’t matter whether they know or not, because the little twin star’s watch, currently tops the ranking as the most sellable items among sanrio’s character goods.

No doubt that the sweet design attracts, but the charm of cuties, “kiki and lala” win the heart of many, I think.

So let your memories of Little Twin stars be wind back with this popular watch (*^-`)v

DIY Japanese styles for long hair

Sick of the same long hair? Here are some Japanese DIY hair styling ideas, picked out from ViVi’s “Elli’s hair arrangement” corner.

There are altogether 3 styles and 2 ways of doing for each style. What’s more, each is fabulous in its own way & easy to style.

I didn’t realize that long hair can be this fun and versatile!

Style1: Pony tail
Elli shows you how classic ponytails need not be boring or plain. The trick to cool ponytail is that she uses part of the hair to wind around the knot, tied. Leave some loose strands down the shoulder for the rugged look.

Style2: Pigtails
The adult version of twin buns. Knotting up in small bundles on top looks so cute and stylish! Alternatively, bun them up into loops at the sides. These pigtail styles look so sweet and casual for dates (*^-^*)

Style3: Half Up half down
Half up styles are look so gorgeous and sophisticated. Elli opted to expose the ears with the first. She went for loose and volumed style at the crown for the second one. Natural wavy locks adds elegance. Cool huh!?

Pokemon cup noodles

Sapporo ichiban had the latest two pokemon movies (shown in summer), packaged into limited edition pokemon cup noodles.

The concept of pokemon cup noodles isn’t new and there are two flavors, soya sauce (left) or seafood (right).

The lovely packaging is one reason it attracts. But here is another reason why I think kids can’t get enough of pokemon cup noodles.
Imagine ingredients, shaped into Pikachu & Pokabu or tepig (soya sauce flavor) OR Pikachu & Oshawott (seafood flavor) floating on top the soup, staring back at you. Before you even know it, your kids will be gobbling down all pokemons and asking you for more!!

But, everyday cup noodle? Its not going to be a good idea though… (~.~*)

The beauty of Japanese traditional sweets

It is Japanese nature to pursue beauty and perfection and food is just one of them. Often, it is said that Japanese food is not only about taste but also a masterpiece for admiration.

Do you know about traditional Japanese sweets “wagashi”?
“Wagashi” always looks very appetizing with its well considered color balancing, exquisite design and the use of vivid colors. The overall presentation is just like a piece of art.

Each is handmade and packed into classy looking boxes.
I am sure no one would mind to pay a little bit more for such exquisite work.

But I got mixed feelings about eating something that looks this good (^-^;).
Anyone feels the same?

Check out on the wagashi shopping site if you are interested.

Summer’s highlight in Japan – awa odori

To visit Japan in summer might not be everyone’s cup of tea due to the high humidity and the sweltering heat. But don’t let the heat keep you away. Summer’s highlight, “Awao odori”, a very famous festival in Japan, took place in summer.

“Awa odori” is a traditional dance festival that is believed to originate from Tokushima around 400 years ago. And now, it became a big annual event that takes place throughout Japan during summer.

Depending on locations, streets will be closed to cars. For 2.5 hrs, you get to see performers in fanciful traditional costumes, dance, chant and sing while parading through the streets in groups. And you enjoy them for FREE (*^-^*)

The chant has a certain rhythmic beat that sounds funny but pleasant to the ears.

But with the end of of awa odori festival each year, it sets me that autumn is on its way and that somehow brought about a tinge of loneliness…

Note:- The schedule of the event varies on location. If you are thinking of joining one, next time, do ensure to confirm the performance date in advance.

It was new to see an entire group of elderly. The dance was slow motion, but creative in the sense that they held musical tools making sounds to align to their dancing steps.

And of course without the music… So the efforts of musical instruments players should not be forgotten. The drums, sure looks heavy enough!
