Why is it that when I have nothing to review, I also have nothing to do online and want to write reviews. But when I finally have things to review, I find other things to do (watching Kuroshitsuji and House M.D – I’m on season 4). Anyways, that’s my excuse for posting this a day […]

I saw this the last time I went to Japantown, but I didn’t get it. Because I didn’t want to crush it before getting home, so yeah.  I was attracted to this chip the first time because of a chip bag I saw online. It looked delicious, and this, is not the same, but looks […]

This candy has interested me for quite a while. Because it’s kind of “famous” I guess, or at least Peko-chan is. I think the first time I heard of Peko-chan was in this manga I was reading. I’ve been tempted to buy this several times, but I wasn’t sure. I finally gave in one day […]

Packaging: Although it’s been a while, I’m sure my description would be the same as the previous one. I love the way the box opens, having it able to reseal and keep the package “fresh” as well as keep rodents and such away, for the most part, though it’s still not the absolute best protection. […]

I’ve seen this in my local market for quite some time. I was distressed, thinking that it would disappear soon, so “I should buy it already” but I wanted to compare prices because most of the time, the stuff at 日本町 is cheaper. I kept dragging it on and on. And every trip I made […]

Note: Just an update on the HK haul, my cousin’s cousin has come back so now I just have to wait to receive the stuff. 今日は七夕です。(7・7) Today is the Tanabata Festival (7/7).  Tanabata is a star festival. It’s most famous for (at least according to me), its legend. The legend is of two lovers who […]

Packaging: I love Kasugai’s packaging for all it’s gummies. I love the way they put a picture of the fruit on the package, such an awesome macro-shot, and it makes it look so delicious and juicy. It makes my mouth water. I haven’t really tried Muscat(like the actual fruit…white grape), but I like anything “exotic-sounding.” […]

Packaging: The thing about this drink that stood out to me while it sat on the freezer shelf, was it’s size. I just love (most) anything that’s chibi(ちび) sized! :D I was looking for a drink, thinking maybe I’ll have some ラムネ or Calpico, since I haven’t had it in a while. And bam! This […]

(I’m going to include more Japanese in my reviews, because I’m trying to incorporate more of it into my life. In fact…I’ve started a private journal in Japanese…a lot are probably grammatically wrong sentences, and there are a couple words/phrases in Japanese. But I’m satisfied…for now.) Well, on my last trip to 日本町. I had […]

Uwah! I haven’t updated in a while! But I do have a reason. My computer was broken-caught a virus and stuff-so I had to deal with that for a whole week! So I had no access to my files. But now I do, so now I will do a review for you guys! (: This […]
