Take time to Enjoy

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Today I was suppose to meet with Nana, Ami and her friends but it ended up just Nana and myself. I actually enjoyed the time alone with Nana cause we both can learn and get to know each other better than hanging out in a big group. I find it harder getting someone's attention when I'm hanging out with a huge group. Though it is a great opportunity to meet then greet on the second time around. Our initial plan was to go to the Cherry Blossom Festival happen near Little Tokyo. But we never found where it is!?!?! When we did ask a person where the festival, he didn't know either.... (asking the wrong person) So Nana and I wander around Little Tokyo telling each other where we like to go, which areas are best, etc. It was such an great experience there are many new discoveries beyond every person I meet. I love it! 

My coordinates for that day... I try to dazzle it up a bit due to my dull room.

We had guy that took a picture of us so I made him take a picture of us using my camera! LOL! 
[ NOTE: The hats were not planned! ]

While walking we came around a mob of cosplayers... I wanted to get a picture of some of them. so I asked a girl if we can get a picture. Then she suddenly screamed, "Picture Time! Picture Time!" we had the mob surround us to let us take the picture.... Haha it was quite scenic.

Cosplay mob surround us...
While walking we saw this cute terrier chained up outside of Marukai. He was a brave little pooch letting us molest him with some photobombing. LOL

puppies thoughts : [ who is this?]

puppies thoughts : [ i bite!!! you know?]

Nana's secret mirror spot to take picture... 

While we were taking pictures infront of the mirror, a man walked by. It was really awkward cause we were the only ones there and out of nowhere this man comes walking by looking strangely at us. 

On 1st street we spotted a new restaurant. 

With such a irresistibly cute logo, we decided to come in.  

Nana and I talked about Gyaru and how we got into it. I love to share stories, tips. I figure we both have two  genuine things in common, GYARU and FOOD!!!

We didn't eat breakfast and it was already past noon! Our HUNGER FACES!!

Such cute LOGO!!!

I had the Shrimp and Basil Pasta 
IMO: It was really bland... very little taste. But if you add some parmesan cheese it taste a tad bit better. But I wouldn't recommend getting it again. For a place that says its famous for Pasta. This dish is no bueno. Now I have to come back and try the other goodies. 

Nana got the Pork Katsu Curry. Her dish was full of flavor and crispiness... Nana said the curry is way better than Curry House. Well you be the judge! Go try! I want to come back here again and try their salad too cause they claim their known for it. This place is more of the Western Japanese restaurant. They have plenty of those in Japan and the style is exactly the same down to the placements of the utensils.


We met another cosplayer. I don't remember which anime is from but Nana seems to know.. fill me in on it!!!

We went inside some Japanese gifts/cosmetics/toys/ everything store. Nana grabbed one of those cane.. looking like an old man...LOL

Fake looking miniature cake stuff that I could never eat. 

We both aren't a be fan of Hello Kitty. But we whine up taking pictures with it. I ask one kitty if he was a boy or a girl... It did not answer....LOL!

Walked a thousand steps....

In these shoes!

We decided to go somewhere else... took the car and took a drive, then we spotted the Blossom Festival!!! It was literally a street away and we missed it!!! Though we did end up going to the festival when it was almost over!!! SHAME! Yes Nana we will remember this... lost!

It was an awesome day.... 

We have many more things we wanted to do together too!
