Space saving / スペースの有効利用

Effective space utilization techniques extending to bicycle lots. — Tokyo

★ 都心ではスペースの有効利用は常に課題です。駐輪所まで工夫をしなきゃいけない状態です。

It is grateful to know that the payment machine is linked to commutation ticket, so that choice of card payment other than cash is possible. How convenient!
And by the way, You know WHAT!?
The machine is on “24 hours guard” by a famous security company in japan. I bet the security company welcomes such business with big smiles. (*^o^*)/

★ 精算機は何とSUICAカードが使えます。写真は駐輪場利用精算機ですが、地味ながら も警備システムが付いています (ノ゚⊿゚)ノびっくり!!

Shopping spree (I) / 買物 (I)

Finally I found a little bit of time to update the items I bought at the outlet last month.

My “shopperholic button” is being triggered again after lying low for a while..
Oh there goes my saving plan for this month ….

To start with, these are the two bottoms that I bought.

ショッピング中毒気味の私。この一年間何とかセールから目を逸らし続けてきたのに・・・。今月の節約計画は見送りです(T T)

Japanese beauty / 美人タレント二人

So to all guys who are crazy about Japanese ladies. This is a little introduction about two popular actress cum fashion model, who are favourite candidates for recent commercials, probably owning to their beautiful soothing faces.

P.S: Everyone’s criteria of beauty is different. I am sorry if my definition of beauty is a bit different from yours m(_ _)m


sasaki nozomi / 佐々木希 (ささきのぞみ)
Akita prefecture is well known in japan for “producing” beautiful japanese women (so guys, quick! What are your waiting for?) ≡≡≡ヘ(*゚∇゚)ノ.
And.. .. yes, indeed sasaki nozomi was born in Akita prefecture. Its very indescribable, its like her beauty takes one’s breath away in my opinion.

★ 秋田県出身の佐々木希さん。秋田美人の独特な顔立ちですね。彼女の美貌といった ら、それはもう、息が止まりそうなくらい(おおげさ?)。個人的に,彼女の顔にとても憧れています。

A look at the representative commercial for sasaki nozomi /

takeiemi / 武井咲 (たけいえみ)
Would you believe it? She will be 18 only in the next coming month! Maybe due to her age, she gives me an image of a very pure, energetic girl who looks fantastic even without makeups (never seen her without makeup before though). And oh her smile. It gives a sense of sincererity.

★ 来月18歳になる武井咲さんですが,大人っぽいと思いませんか? 彼女はとても純粋で,元気で,すっぴんでも全然可愛い女性というイメージ。笑顔が特に素敵です。

Fashion Coordinates (I) / ファッションコーディネート (I)

The variety of Japan’s fashion is really amazing.

In fact, there are no limits to their fashion and everyone dresses differently from clothing to shoes to accessories, creating their own special styles and personalities. Coordination seems like a piece of art here which everyone enjoys doing. Here are a few coordination pickups of my personal preference for the fashion trend of Year 2011 (Autumn/Winter).

特に服や靴,また小物のコーディネートは素晴らしく,く中には芸術作品を見るかのようなものさえあります。みんなコーディネートが大好きなんですね。わかります。私でもコーディネートが決まったときは,とってもいい気分になりますからね (^ ^)/

というわけで,今年の流行のファションコーディーネート(2011 秋/冬)をピックアップしてみました(単純に個人的な好みです)。

Casual yet feminine type.

★ カジュアルながら女性らしいタイプ。

The cute and youthful type. 

★ キュートで若さを強調したタイプ

The cute and smart type. 

★ キュート&スマートなタイプ

The pretty and sporty type.

★ 可愛いくスポーティーなタイプ

kawaii souvenirs / 可愛いお土産

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.

Mitsui outlet park / 三井アウトレットパーク

Here I come, outlet park…

I chanced upon the sale information on the TV. “SALE UP TO 80% OFF” IT SAID.
Wow! Who could RESIST ??? So I was on immediately on my way the very next day.

Nestled in the outskirts of tokyo, mitsui outlet park is an outlet mall (like a factory outlet) whereby most of the Japanese fashion bands are gathered. I always enjoy shopping here, but as the place of my living is far from here, I seldom come UNLESS… they are having sale of course. \(^-^)/

三井アウトレットパークに行ってきました。昨日,偶然にテレビで,セール開催中という宣伝を目にした私。 キタ━(゚∀゚)━!!!!!!!

早速、今日、飛んで行きました。 (電車でだけど。。。)
m(_ _ )m


A feel of the presence of autumn with the line up of trees with their leaves already turned golden.

A university located just beside the outlet. Couldn’t help envying the students..

Face up powder (I) / フェースアップパウダー (I)

face up powder

Face up powder produced by kanebo had enjoyed fame as one of the best cosmetics in year 2010 award by @cosme (data gathered from user’s feedback). The ratings to date is a 5.4 out of 7 (from total of 1127 reviews). It continues to show popularity through this year with high reviews from users who are using this product and it seems prior reservation must be made to obtain it (reservation period opened from June ~ Sep), but still, it will be opened up for purchases (limited) from mid dec.

Some of the positive comments were:

  • It gives the skin a sense of transparency (glowing, radiant).
  • It looks so natural after application.
  • Makeup stays fresh throughout the day
  • The fine-textured power helps in covering up the pores giving the skin a healthy look.

Every cosmetic no matter how good the quality is, depending on a person’s skin condition, it might not be suitable for every one. So there are bound to be negative comments. Here it goes:

  • Taking into consideration of its price (expensive), I don’t see how it does wonder to my face.
  • I disagreed on the part where it stay fresh throughout the day.
  • It seems too dry for the skin.

By the way, I certainly like the exquisite case design and the picture of an engraved angel on the powder. Actually, the design and color of the case changes (pink for Year 2011) every year and would you believe it(?), some people buy it for the sake of the CASE!!

But actually on top of the case, it seems there are some enhancement made to the powder. I will touch a bit on the characteristics (enhancement point) of faceup power for Year 2012 and points on how to obtain the radiant look on Part (II) . So do stay tune in.

12,600yen, inclusive of tax (~163USD)



  • 透明感がでて、肌が綺麗に見える
  • 化粧が崩れにい
  • テカらない
  • キメが細かい
  • カバー力がある


  • 値段や評価の割に良さが感じらない
  • 時間が経つにつれて崩れてしまい、崩れかたもすごく汚くなってしまった
  • 季節を問わず,肌が乾燥する


デザイン以外にも商品自体改善されているとのことで,とても期待ができる商品だと思います (≧▽≦)☆。

Friends get together / 友達との再開

Yesterday’s foul weather finally gave way to a bright warm sunny day today. Such fine day gives an urge to go out to enjoy the good weather. I visited the home of a friend whom I had not seen for ages.

Come to think of it, visiting someone’s home in japan is a very rare chance for me and especially its someone that I haven’t been seeing for years. I must have gotten too excited and all I could remember was that I was talking, eating and drinking non-stop. I had a whale of a time.

The home is very cozy. On top of the furniture and layout, in my opinion, a bit of decorations here and there certainly does the additional work. I must say I have no idea when it comes to home decorations. I thought I have no sense and so, I couldn’t be bothered with it. But obviously, you don’t need to be an expert for some minor transformations. All it takes is a bit of imaginations, a bit of effort and a few playful touches. I picked up a few items that I thought seems interesting.




Some decorations on the door to greet you to start your morning with before heading off to work.

★ ドアでの飾りが可愛くて、暖かい気持ちになります。

Didn’t know that the combination of dry flowers, twigs and small little decorations can turn into something creative d(^o^)b.

★ この飾り物、ドライフラワーと小枝や小物の組み合わせがなかなか個性的です♪

Oh no! All I know is that this was from Germany. Don’t ask me what it is because I was too busily trying to take pictures than listened to the explanation ( ̄へ ̄|||) .And by the way, the numbers ended at 24.

★ 写真を撮ることに夢中になって、飾り物に関する話を聞き取れませんでした。
ごめんなさいm(_ _)m。 ドイツの物らしいんですが・・・。

With a few imaginations, even old plain pine cones can turn into wonders.

★ 想像力をちょっと働かせるだけで、ただの松かさがこんなに可愛く変身するんですね!

Good company, good food, good weather what other else to ask for? Moreover, I was presented with special souvenirs (rice cracker). A deserved to be mention is that the cracker come with a momiji (maple leaf)! WOW, its really beyond beyond description. Creative!

★ お土産までもらいちゃいました。 (*^-^*) なんと紅葉が入っているお煎餅です~~斬新!

Finally, I knew that maple leaves ARE EDIBLE. It just tastes like ………… leaf, that’s all (LOL). Of course, the cracker is nice.

★ 紅葉が食べられると初めて知りました(*○*)!! お煎餅の味はもちろん美味しいです!紅葉の味は…………ただの葉っぱの味ですが。。。
