Autumn leaves are falling

November 22, 2010

So like I said, I was on a leaf viewing mission. Autumn leaves, like cherry blossom, are a big deal here in Japan. And the constant leaf updates stress me out! I just wanted to see some…and not obsess over exactly where the best ones would be and exactly when they would change colour. As it happened we saw lots. I guess Tofukuji had the most colourful but everywhere we went was beautiful. I think I’d like to live in Kyoto. I’m always thinking I’d like to live places though. I wish for once I could live somewhere that I really really wanted to live and that I could wake up each day happy that I lived there. Oh dear, this is meant to be a happy leaf post. Ignore me! Look! Colours! The reds, the greens, the yellows!


Oh Maiko

Went to Kyoto last weekend on an Autumn leaf hunting MISSION. There are photos of leaves, of course, but there are also pictures of me dressed up as a maiko. It was a fun thing to do. I really love getting my make up done. It’s not like getting a haircut, you can just lie back and look forward to whatever the make up artist is doing and if it’s all that bad you can just wash your face. Of course I wasn’t unhappy with the results! Especially the lips. Goodness me they were amazing, I wish I could apply lipstick like that… *sigh*

I removed everything except the eye make up afterwards, managed to keep that on all day :)

We went to Shiki Sakuraten and they were very nice so you should go there if you fancy dressing up as a maiko, geiko or samurai!

Have a Break…

Time for some new Kit Kats! Most of them pretty daunting really! I haven’t managed to try the cheese ones yet cause, I mean, EW! I think it’s hilarious that they come in boxes with pictures of golden locks and keys. Are they saying they’re a special, luxury treat? They’re even yellow!! Are they supposed to replace cheese? Why do they exist?? Aaaaahhhh!!

As for the others, Semi Sweet, I haven’t tried. Isn’t the point of Kit Kats that they ARE sweet? Cola and Lemonade is probably ick, especially considering how I felt about the Ramune flavoured ones. Got the melon and corn ones in Hokkaido and only recently tried them. They weren’t as bad as I thought they’d be but I was pretty drunk at the time so maybe I was overly enthusiastic…

Anyway, here are some pictures so you can imagine the deliciousness!

When I first saw the new starter Pokemon, I, like so many others, thought that Mijumaru was a bit odd. And not cute. I was WRONG!! Everyone else was wrong too. He is very very cute!!! LOOK!


Oh! So slow!

I know, it’s been ages! I do apologise, I was having some photo storage problems but it’s all fine now :)

As promised, some more cute Halloween things:
