Soup Stock Tokyo, the house of soups

With the winter drawing near, nothing could be more luxurious than sipping a cup of delicious soup for a soup craze like me. They work miracles to keep the body warm.

Love to death soups from “Soup Stock Tokyo” if you ever heard of them.
Reasons?? The variations and rich & thick taste of their soups. I am drooling even just at the thought of them (*~o~)

Unfortunately Soup Stock Tokyo is not everywhere in Japan.

Of all places, Soup Stock Tokyo had chosen to set up an outlet near my working place!! But “Soup Stock Tokyo” wants anyone yearning for a sip of their concentrated, delicious soup to be able to get it without the need to bring themselves to their shop.

This is how their Yahoo collaborated online soup business is born. Putting soups into carts! How convenient Japan is getting to be!
These soups selling in sets of 9 is Soup Stock Tokyo’s arranged version from their very own viewpoint of famous soups from the world. Oh no… I am drooling again…(*T_T)

Check them out on “Soup Stock Tokyo” yahoo site if you are interested.

In order to preserve freshness, those living overseas unfortunately wouldn’t have a chance to taste these. TOO BAD!

Price: 5,250yen

Halloween costumes styles (ViVi)

Does it sound unbelievable that Japan is actually celebrating Halloween? In some ways, Japan is more westernized than one can imagine.

Just a month or more before Halloween, lots of shops started selling Halloween decorations. Pumpkins in all sorts of design have become part of the common items. And Cosplay & Halloween costumes shopping sites struggled to cope with flooding orders for Halloween parties.

It might be a little too late for Halloween ideas, but I just noticed this article featuring Halloween costumes coordinates created by ViVi. They looked so fun and silly.

For those who are still are looking for crazy costumes ideas for Halloween.

Unique mischievous Halloween styles idea

  • 1. Meet the new mouse girl with mouse cap, fur coat paired with silver leggings. On my! I still want my sweetie Minnie mouse. (- -#)
  • 2. Even the American Indians are going to give nods and thumbs up on this native costume for sure.
  • 3. The Japanese’s outrageously fun and sexy diner girl’s costume. An apron tied to the waist of a long shirt, buttoned down to reveal bikini in AMERICAN FLAG design. This gets equally funky d(^o^)b
    And don’t forget about the roller skates!

Sweet, girlish Halloween styles

  • 4. All reds & polka dots, the ever-popular cute ladybug costume. Not too much surprise though…
  • 5. Wow! The cursed dead bride returned as a zombie to roam the streets
    (OoO ;;)
  • 6. The flirty, sexy courtesan. How Japanese style clothing blends in amazingly at ease with Europe’s originated Halloween (*^m^*)

Hug & dream minnie mouse/ soothing sleep gadget

Insomniacs longing for a good night’s rest might be glad that “Hug & Dream Minnie Mouse”, a soft toy will start selling on the market from November. Unlike ordinary toys, this one has the effect to comfort and soothes one to sleep.

And what has Minnie mouse got to do with a good night’s sleep (@^o^@)

“Hug & Dream Minnie Mouse”, is a collaboration work between Japanese toymaker Takara Tomy and cognitive & respiratory specialist from Showa University School of Medicine. Minnie is fitted with a mechanism mimicking the breathing pattern of human. She “breathes in” once every 5 seconds. While hugging her, the rhythm breathing is expected to calm and soothes and naturally induces one to sleep.

She came with a melody option where you can turn it on if you find that having the music is more relaxed.
And it even came with an auto sleep function in which breathing motion is automatically switched off after certain time.

For those who had a hard time getting into sleep, “Hug & dream minnie mouse” could help perhaps (-z-)……..zzz
