here are three magazines i bought the other day. two of them are interior design magazines to help with ideas and organization tips for your Japanese apartments. and the other one is a great mens fashion/life magazine with everything from clothes, food, grooming tips, hobbies, and entertainment.
(these first 7 pictures are from the mens magazine.)
(does this bonsai shop look familiar to you? its the shop in Tokyo called Sinajina that Iinekore mentioned in her trip to Japan, which was originally mentioned by the Tokyoite herself, Hikisan!)
(...and the rest of the pictures are from the interior magazines. i love all these living spaces. they remind me a bit of Muji, with it's simple layouts and emphasis on sunlit rooms with house plant decor)
today i need to: clean my room, do the laundry, water my plants, cook myself a nice meal, then maybe watch a relaxing dvd on this fine afternoon.
ps: thank you all for your amazing comments on my last post. it was sooo interesting to read all your little quirks about yourselves! some made me really laugh out loud! ...and also how majority of you are completely opposite from me when it comes to liking sweets! i cannot handle it! hahah, but i must admit, there is this amazing Japanese cheese-cake at this Japanese confectionery/restaurant that makes me melt inside. but thats only because it's not sweet at all! its very light and you can cut through it like tofu. おなかすいた！
the Hawaii International Film Festival is in town for the week, and last night me and my friends went to watchSummer Wars. it was such a great film! visually stunning, amazing story, super funny, and very cute. the story gets pretty intense at the end, but none the less, it was a fun film to watch. and dont you just love all these little mini-posters?!
i like this view from my friends apartment. he lives on the 9th floor, and every friday, you can see the fireworks the city displays!
i went on a little hike the other day around Diamond Head, and found myself by the sea once again. it was such a nice afternoon...this makes me want to get back into surfing :-P
and today i went to Kawaii Kon! its a Japanese Anime convention, it was the first time i have ever been to one of these, so it was so fun for me! if you already did not know, i am a huge dork and i like video games. haha, so i felt so comfortable here! everyone was so interesting and friendly. i had a great time!
(this totoro is kind of scary and ugly, don't you think? haha)
and tomorrow i'm having a photoshoot with a couple of my friends for a project. i am kind of excited, we will see how it goes.....also, PLEASE WATCH THIS hilarious cat video!! i almost died laughing so hard!!
