Christmas has always been my favourite holiday of the year. I get to see family members I wouldn’t normally see throughout the year, catch up with friends of old and new and most importantly (for me at least) I take the time to appreciate the joys of life. This Christmas will be the second time […]Read More Thought I’d Make A Christmas Ad
Fall is here, well, it has been here and almost gone. While we are have already started layering up in Japan, that wasn’t the case in the earlier fall months. This post is a little late, so forgive me. I was invited to go for lunch with a friend of mine and hadn’t the faintest idea what I wanted […]Read More Plaid is for Fall
Last month, while browsing through Facebook, I came across a video that caught my attention. This video was a short animated clip of a cute panda who bought bread which turned out to be bad. I couldn’t stop myself from laughing because it was so funny (well to me at least). I wanted more. I […]Read More Warupan is here!
On Sunday September 3rd, the One Love, One Heart: JAMAICA FESTIVAL was held in Sakae, Aichi, Japan. Typically, the dress code would be Jamaican colours, but I had other plans. I had an idea for an outfit that I wanted to try and this was the perfect place to do so. Since it’s summer and I […]Read More My Camo Debut
Recently, I’ve been wanting to add more overalls to my closet. This summer couldn’t have played out more perfectly, as my favourite budget friendly stores, Bershka and Forever21 (Men), had some in stock. Though overalls have their issues, the need to have them outweighed any feelings of doubt. Okay. So maybe I didn’t need them but it […]Read More A Summer Of Overalls
The Real Housewives of Orange County‘s tag lines are out and I’m not super impressed. Usually the OC women have such witty and catchy tag lines, that I don’t mind hearing them at the start of every episode. This year, for season 12, I’m not sure I want to hear them for the weeks to […]Read More If I Want Your Opinion, I’ll Give It To You
June 21st, summer officially begins. For some parts of Japan (日本), this also means the beginning of barbecue season. I for one love a good barbecue and can’t get enough of them. The day after I saw Britney Spears live in Tokyo (東京), I was invited to one. Though it wasn’t official summer yet, this […]Read More Summer Blues
Haha! I paused. Laughing before writing this piece. I didn’t think I needed to but in light of recent events, I decided to go for it. A few days ago a Facebook user shared a video which spoke to how Asian men are represented in Hollywood. The video showed clippings from an interview where women shared their […]Read More Asians Are Unsexy Nerds, Blacks Are Brutes
It’s the weekend which means I would be spending it in one of the many Starbucks (スターバ) in Nagoya, Japan (名古屋、日本). I had the intention of first attending my students’ volleyball game but I missed it by about two hours. Seeing as it was too early in the morning make my weekend Starbucks (スターバ) visit, I […]Read More Matcha x Vanilla
As the seasons come and go in Japan (日本) so do the frappuccino of the season. Summer is technically here and a new frappuccino was launched on June 14th. I introduce to you the Chocolate Cake Frappuccino with a Matcha Shot (チョコレートケーキトップフラップ). As a connoisseur of all things Starbucks Japan (スターバ) L O L, I was very […]Read More Matcha Baby! Matcha!
