20 random things not so many people knew about me.

The first job I ever wanted to do was to be a builder and build my own house. 

My best friend is a girl named Louise. We've been best friends since we were five and are inseparable. I consider her family. 

I have four scars: appendix, hernia, a gash down my left leg (drunk biking accident) and a scar between my left thumb and forefinger from where a girl jabbed her nail in my hand when I was ten. 

I guess you now know I have had two operations. 

I have five tattoos. 

I had four facial piercings in uni. I now only have one. I also had the web pierced between my right thumb and forefinger - which got infected. 

I and my father saw a ghost when I was younger in my house. 

I get really irate at business men who wear white sports socks and people who clap their hands when they find something funny. 

I freak out if I see crossed cutlery - or anything crossed really. I have to lay it parallel.  

I hate confrontation and simply walk away from it. 

I don't get phased by much. 

I have no problem spending all my money on clothes. Ill happily spend money on clothes - even if it means I can't afford to go out and wear them 

When I'm sad I like to go for walks around the city by myself. I particulary am fond of cemeteries - Yanaka - an old area of Tokyo. I like to read books there and read old tomb stones.  

I still think about my first love daily. 

People say I come across as confident but Im a very self conscious type and can be shy.  

When I was in school and off sick, I would always spend the day watching two movies: 'friend green tomatoes at the whistle stop cafe' and 'Singles.' 

I remember the first time I told the time. I was 4 and it was a summer afternoon. I walked into the living room and saw my mum and said 'its 4:20pm.' 

I only have one regret and that was that I didn't study hard enough at uni. I feel like I wasted a lot of potential. 

I make sure I find something to smile about everyday. I believe smiling definitely benefits your health. 

One thing that constantly freaks me out is that I seem to glance at the clock and its 9:11 am/ pm. I catch that time at least two times a week.

weekend - eats!

Tshirt: Vivienne Westwood. 
Pants: Comme Des Garcons. 
Bag: Gucci. 
Trainers: Miu Miu. 

Yes, I'm a fucking label whore in this picture lol. This is what I wore today shopping around Harajuku with Rita. I LOVE those CDG pants so much. There's a cute story behind them actually.. 

So years ago when they first came out (and what I would say set a standard in fashion and defined the character of what CDG is all about), I was in awe. Of course, back then, I was a lot younger with crap all income and about 1000 miles out of reach of the nearest cool store. (the income thing hasn't changed btw.) Anyway, they were snapped up obviously and for years I searched through ebay etc in vain.  Then one day, about two years ago I was looking through this little treasure trove store in my neighbourhood here in Tokyo and what did I pull off a rail of trousers? THESE! I couldn't believe it. Once I got over the excitement the next thing that jumped into my mind was "there's no way they'll fit". I mean this is Japan where even the heffas are slim. So I took them to the fitting room and lo and behold, they on like a glove! I dropped the money and skipped out of their shitting skittles and rainbows! :) 

And that's how I got a pair of collectors -probably one of the most collected items- of CDG. 

Back to my weekend, it has been kinda mellow. Lots of eating and not so much partying. Korean barbeque Saturday night, followed by Sunday shopping in Harajuku, ramen for dinner and then cinema. NIce! Actually feel ready to face the week :) 

Rita's boots which I really like! I've never seen them before. She bought this really interesting - kinda pastel/ mint green - shrink skirt today and it looked so good with these boots. I need to get pics! 

And on another topic... I went into the electrical store tonight to pick up a cover for my iPhone. Shit! I know that everyone in Japan goes crazy for little phone keyring things but i didn't know how big a business it was. They are SERIOUS about that shit! lol 

Have a great week everyone!

S P R I N G   C L E A N !!!

There is no way I am going to throw these miu miu trainers away - all because of a little dirt. I guess I shouldn't really go clubbing in them :/ 



You've gotta love some hand soap and an old toothbrush! 
As if i was ever going to get rid of these bad boys..... they're from the season before the very last that was miu miu mens (God rest its soul.)

**::::*::: R E D:::...*..*****::

Is a hot colour that conjours up a range of seemingly conflicting emotions from passionate love, to violence and warfare. 
Red is cupid. 
And also the devil.

Four days of partying.

It's been four days of drinks and fun!!!

I met up with Sandra and Michelle who were in town for a week. We had dinner, drinks, did karaoke and then did the same again the next night.
