Summer in Japan spells, soaring temperatures, high humidity, heat island, that I have little tolerance for. I do appreciate the sun very much, but I can’t say the same for summer seasons.
You know how it feels when you wake up every morning, sticky and soak in sweat?
Each summer, I swear by Biore’s “sara sara powder sheet” ever since I started using it 3 years ago. It became a routine to just take one out from the pack, to wipe my body every morning. Body odor (bet that’s what most of you are conscious of) and stickiness, all gone within a wipe. Save me the shower, save water, save $$$. I feel so refresh and dry after that, as if I had a shower.
Nobody knows that I don’t shower in the morning b(^_-)b
I won’t know what’s the secret behind each sheet, but definitely “sara sara powder sheet” is another great product that I would strongly recommend.
And, wow! I didn’t realize there are as many as seven types available (@o@)!!
Those containing mild, pleasant scent are the only ones that I had tried before.
More types might show up again, next year, perhaps.
Please inquire through the blue button below for more details on this product.

This product has nothing to do with panty, in case you are wondering why on earth am I posting a thong panty on the blog.
Its another innovative product designed and created with women in mind. It became a big seller in Japan now for “womanly reason”.
Now you got the picture?
It is a cleavage cover meant to prevent “unwanted leerings”.
Some women highlighted their concerns over the accidental exposure of their cleavage due to certain movements or attires. And that’s it! Cleavage cover was born, by the words of the mouth.
And the funny thing is, nobody will ever guess that you are wearing a cover, shaped like a panty, because they look like stylish camisoles.
And what’s more, they are easy to put on too. Just get them hook onto the bra. And its going to be effective to get rid of the so called “accidental glimpse of cleavage” ＼(*^▽^*)/
Oh… unless… you are the type who swears by braless …
Cool summer cleavage cover
So what is men’s reaction towards cleavage cover?
Majority of the net users were displeased. “Mind you! We can’t see cleavages any more!”
Looks like we can’t satisfy both parties. Your thoughts?

“It is raining outside. Get your lettuce ready!”
So bet you thought the person who said so is nuts?
“Vegetabrella” is the most talked about umbrella in Japan. An umbrella that looks exactly like a lettuce when its folded. “Tokyo Noble” who designed and produced “vegetabrella”, has been trying to keep up with their production, after orders came pouring in.
How they made efforts to study the lettuce real closely is obvious. The coloring, wrinkled texturing came close to that of real lettuce. Even the fastener strap looks like that used in the supermarket to hold the lettuce together!
“Ermm… Why are you walking around with a lettuce?” Be prepared to be asked (o^-^o)
And the good news. The surface is processed to cut out UV. So apart from rainy days, it is handy during summer days too. Lettuce umbrella is probably a good idea, if you are looking for something unique and creative for a present.
Pray hard they will come up with other veggies versions like pumpkins, eggplant, radish, etc. I would definitely love to see the streets flooded with vegetable umbrellas of all sorts and colors. Meanwhile, we will have to stick to lettuce umbrella for now.
So don’t get it mixed up with the real lettuces bought from supermarket. (^_-*)

Introducing the Single Sheet Cutter, an interesting tool invention. This tool only cuts the top sheet when its run over a stack of papers. Other than the top sheet, underlying papers remain intact. The opposite theory of what a traditional cutter (the cutting as much as possible) should be. Isn’t that fantastic?
This one cutter alone can support the cutting of paper materials of different sizes from thin to thick like newspapers or magazines, etc.
I will get myself one to show my support for it. p(^_^)q

Ok, for those who are looking for souvenirs or interesting items designed and made in Japan，be it pampering yourself or as gifts，the instant noodle stopper will be a nice one in my opinion.
Not only does it look cute, the part that comes into contact with heat changes color and this is what makes it so popular.
Currently，there is a total of four types of design (see below) and different colors to choose from.
P.S: Please take care not to eat so much instant noodle just because they look so cute.

Just as I always wonder if there is any method to make the task of washing rice easier. Problem is that the rice keeps dropping out while I am trying to dispose off the water. I tumbled upon this rice stopper in a supermarket. It certainly does solve the problem.
Hopefully the rice cooker maker won’t keep changing the shape and size of the pot. This cost 250yen (Ref: USD~3.25).
