This week in Tokyo – week 2

Week two of my “doesn’t fit in anywhere else!” picture dump of the week! 🙂

I can’t believe it’s only been a week since I started this blog. It feels like I’ve been blogging forever… (oh wait, I have! Over 9 years now!)

There is a chain store called Beard Papa that I love. ♥ They sell cream puffs, which as far as I am concerned are food of the gods.

I.. uh.. also thought that they were japanese, for a long time. I’d never heard of nor seen them before I moved to Japan!

The clerk is touting the new lemon cream puff! Yuuuuuum! Yep, it tastes as good as it sounds. Just like heaven.

You know you want one!

I’m learning how to use my close-up lens :3

Haven’t quite gotten the hang of it!


This is the stuff they serve in the good part of the afterlife, right? Plus, in heaven it doesn’t make you fat!

Found this “Green Espresso” in the conbini (convenience store)..

How could I not give it a shot? Alas, I drank it all before I could take a good picture. I’ll get another tomorrow!! :3 :3

Some pictures of my apartment for your amusement.. :9
This is a stuffed jellyfish that I bought at the Yokohama Sea Paradise aquarium many many many years ago. It now lives on my lamp cord, helping to brighten up my room.

Well, now you know 🙂

I also love Kappa. More on that later!

Some people might recognize this. 🙂 I need to get it framed, but I’m waiting until I get a nice apartment so that I can match it to the decor!

I don’t like tatami mats, but they’re pretty.

A view out my window. These bamboo screens are to keep out the sun’s harsh heat. Not that I really need them anymore..

It also helps keep out peeping toms (like me)!

This is the much-beloved area rug that I bought for 900 yen last fall. I bleach it about once a week to keep it white. ^^;

Even my socks are kappa!

More of my room..

Look, it’s the world’s most busy Starbucks! The Starbucks at Shibuya station!

It’s right across the street from the station, can’t miss it!

Pretty cups and food 🙂

This is the cup that I bought– I love it!!

I hate to call it a night here… but tomorrow I have a date! :3

I also have another 2 or three posts to write tomorrow!! =D
