Tokyo Day 2

Was raining and so we decided take it as a shopping day!

How considerate and excellent are the customer service here. They even prepare plastic covers for the shopping bags so that it doesn’t get wet in the rain. Each store have these prepared in the sizes of their own bags!

We had to check out the famed Building 109! Definitely an array of shops located in numerous levels. The fashion being shown and the attire, AMAZING! There are always the ladies at hand at the information counter to help you.

Some enter this world, full of hope and wonder
While others are affected by grim and despair

Passages of time flows by
Changing our views and perspectives

Life becomes weary
No longer is there wonder of what life brings
Instead, it is of what else can life hit you with
Has she now become jaded........

Tokyo Day 1

This post is long overdue and is a continuation from here. I still decided to post it up as I spent a lot of time working on the posts and pictures and absolutely loved my trip!


After grabbing some dinner, we were too excited being in Tokyo that we went walking around even though it is already close to 11pm. To my luck, I came upon this shop.

YES! It’s ‘RanKing RanQueen’. Top of my list for stores to visit when I am in Tokyo. The store works on the concept of every product that is sold in the store is part of a top 3, top 5 or top 10 list. It can be anything from drinks to food to makeup to socks. Handy place to go to find out the latest craze or what is the top product in that category.

Especially if you’re a tourist and need somewhere to start before delving into all things Japanese and scratching your head as to which one to get. Stickers with the No. 1, No.2 numbering tags definitely helps.

I got some of my favourite stuff this way from a similar ranking store in Kyoto.

TB was scratching his head when I squealed in delight as I found what I always wanted to get.

Yes, it looks a little too short as slippers doesn’t it? LOL! It’s actually made that way intentionally. By wearing these, the lower part of your feet is about an inch lower than the top part so what it does it that it stretches your calves at the end of the day when you’re wearing it at home. Meant to keep the calves long and lean.

Check out my review here.

Happy New Year - usher in the new decade!

Happy 2010!!!

I celebrated it in style and in the freezing cold in New York. It was really fun. Will post more of my trips from the past few months soon.

Right now, am keeping my fingers cross that my flight actually departs back to London and that my luggage actually follows along!
