leap day!

It’s leap day which only happens once every 4 years. Since I haven’t written anything for quite some time, I’m going to write the recap of my life since I got back here.
  • I met my grandma during the cny.
  • I went to school several times to take care some stuff
  • I met C and R yayyyyyyyyy
  • I met some of my friends in school
  • Finally my group’s proposal was accepted last week so we can finally start making our thesis
  • My dog has fucking ticks idk wtf happened when I was away for months but now he has fucking ticks poor my dog and myself (because those bastards also bit me several times). Luckily most of them are fucking dead now thanks to me.
  • I’m sure I gained my weight because of all the food that I ate here, not because of the food I ate in Japan. I fucking starved myself to save some money to buy stuff there. I’m as fat as a pig, and I ate bacon yesterday and today. omg.
  • The spring term started last week, but I’m still not assigned to any classes because of my uni is so dumb I don’t even wanna talk about it.
  • I stupidly didn’t close the lid of my water bottle properly and the water spilled to the bag and drowned my stuff including my iphone which i used as an ipod and now it’s dead.

kurosaki

since my mom uses the quota based internet at home, so I have to limit my streaming habit. I really wanted to watch kurosaki last night, so I watched an episode. Then I continued to watch the other episode on starbucks today...... honestly it actually costs more to buy a starbucks drink than to buy 2gb of quota which worth around 5 episodes of tv shows. But I also wanted green tea frappuccino that I hadn’t had for a while lol. I hadn’t watched dorama for a while and I’m glad that I watched it. It’s definitely a live action shoujo manga lol.

Harajuku ♥

I have officially declared that Harajuku is my favorite place in Japan lol. Why??? because of the idol stores obv! So I went there on my last week in Japan twice lol. I went there in January 30th, to buy some pics in Johnny's Shop. I bought around 20s pics, and most of them are Kento's lol. I also bought Jr., arashi, and Hey! Say! JUMP pics.

Then I went to takeshita dori to find the shop that I went there a while ago with D but I couldn't find it!! I wanted to get another nakajima kento gacha so I'd have two keyrings of him :/ but I found gorakudoh instead!!!! It's a store that sells Johnny's related goods! Concert goods, CDs, DVDs, the goods that you get if you buy the limited edition cds/dvds, penlights, posters, photos, uchiwas, and even the goods from their dorama!



My cash was limited at that time so I had to get some money on 7/11 first in order to buy some goods I wanted. I bought a keychain from SZ 2013 concert goods, and an uchiwa of kento! It's definitely the most expensive keychain I've ever bought lol. It's 3000 yen and the uchiwa was 1500 yen. I really want to start my own idol business because it seems to generate a lot of money lol.

Then I went to another store underground, which I don't know the name. It sold pics and posters. So apparently the papa pics that are quite rare on the net are sold there! I didn't buy anything at that time, because I've bought a bunch of pics from JS.

Luckily, I had to buy another bag because some of my stuff were still unpacked and all of my bags & suitcases were already full so I had to go to Tokyo again in February 1st. I also managed some time to visit Harajuku again, for the last time before going back to Indonesia on 3rd February. So I went to the same route as I went there the last time + omotesando because I wanted to buy gudetama stuff in kiddyland.



So I bought another pictures on Johnny's Shop. I really didn't really think when writing the numbers on the form this time, because it'd take a loooooooooong time until I could go back there again. I bought another bunch of pics of Sexy Zone, Jr., Hey! Say! JUMP, and KAT-TUN! Sadly some of the old Jr. pics were already removed and I couldn't buy the pic that I hesitated to buy the last time I was there! It's a pic of Mr. King and Hirano Sho was super cute there but I'm not really a fan of the other 2 so I hesitated to buy it and now I totally regret it! So I really didn't think twice for all pics that I bought that day after that sad experience :/

Then I went to Takeshita dori from the front side (I usually went there from the back) and went to the underground shop to buy some pics. I only bought Kento's pics lol. I wanted to buy some pics of Taiga as well because all of his pics on JS weren't really appealing to me, but I didn't in the end idk why lol.

I also went to gorakudoh to check on some goods again. I saw the blue towel (aka kento's version) which was a gift for sexy zone 3rd album shop edition or something, that I saw on the internet and I really wanted it. I didn't buy it the first time I went there because I had to save some money, but thankfully my dad sent me some money that night so I could buy more Johnny's goods LOL. I wanted to buy some KAT-TUN stuff because I used to really really really like them and their songs are really really really really good. But there's nothing really useful so I only bought two uchiwas of Jin! I was really glad that I could still find Akanishi Jin uchiwas there because he's left Johnny's for a few years now. The uchiwas weren't in perfect condition but it's Jin and they're only 100 yen each so it's perfect for me lol. I'm actually both happy and sad because it's only 100 yen, meanwhile old arashi uchiwas were still expensive AF but no wonder actually.

Luckily I found the gacha shop again!! So I got some gacha of kento and stones. I wanted either matsumura hokuto or kyomoto taiga gacha. I got shintaro at first, and kinda didn't want to play it anymore because I'm really bad at spending money on gacha lol (remember how I spent more than IDR500k on utapri gacha?). But I thought what if hokuto or taiga would come out next?? So I DID SPEND ANOTHER 300 YEN AND I GOT TAIGA YAYYYYYYYYY!!! I didn't continue because I was afraid I'd spend too much money there until I got hokuto. Apparently, the store also sold some other stuff, so I bought some other stuff lol. I bought sekuzo and kento pencils. I thought they're pens, apparently they're pencils......... well at least it'll now last forever and ever because they ain't cheap fucking pencils. I wanted to buy some hirano sho or iwahashi genki stuff too, but I didn't. I'd probably would if I didn't spend my money on clothes a few months before :(



Then I went to kiddyland in omotesando area. I wanted to buy gudetama doll that I've seen countless times everytime I went to kiddyland. I also wanted to buy the fucking expensive but cute hello kitty lunch box but it wasn't sold anymore!!! So I just bought gudetama doll, gudetama card holder, kirimi-chan card holder, and hello kitty phone strap. I wanted to buy the talking gudetama doll but it's more expensive than the super soft doll so I just bought the silent doll instead lol. I'd freak out if that doll could talk.

I had to buy another bag at donki (because I wanted to buy the same one that I bought there a while ago) so I went to the one in Shinjuku because I'd never been to the store in Shinjuku. I went there using the JR Yamanote line, and look at what I saw on the JR harajuku eki!!!!


I'm so proud to finally see him on a banner on a public area where a lot of people passing by LOL. The movie is going to be released soon so there's a lot of promotion going on right now! Sadly I'm not in Japan anymore :'( I hope a lot of people will watch it while it airs there meanwhile I'll just wait until the DVD is released and someone give a subtitle for it lol.



Anyway, I'm glad that I could visit shinjuku again, I thought I wouldn't get to go there again before I go back to ID. I didn't find the duffel bag that I was looking for though, so I had to go to Donki in Machida to buy it -_-

[Instax Challenge] Week 4/52 - Imperial Theater


January 22, 2016 - I visited the Imperial Theater again, and one of the reason was because I wanted to take a pic of this important building where I finally watched Johnny's for the first time (and see the actual grandpa) using my cute instax :3

東京, zagin, akiba

After postponing a few times, I finally went to Tokyo lol. I went to Tokyo quite often, but I'd never really been to 東京 (well I kinda went there for JW but I didn't get to explore the area). I planned to go there on January 14th, but I was too lazy to get up in the morning. I planned to visit zagin (aka ginza, idk why they like to call it zagin instead) so I had to go there early since it took around an hour from my place to zagin.



I didn't went there as early as I planned. I arrived there at around 2:30pml. But I finally wasn't too lazy to get up from the bed lol. There's a looooot of Chinese and Korean tourists there. I didn't find anything interesting in Ginza.



Then I walked to the Imperial Theater because it's nearby and JW was currently showed there. I wish I could watch it again..... and the public can buy the goods without actually watching the show! I wanted to buy a set of Yugo's pic for my friend, but I kinda short on money so I didn't get it :(



Then I went to Imperial Palace which was nearby. The view was great, nothing special though. Lots of tourists taking pics. I'd rather go to Imperial Theater because there were huge banners of JW in front of the building lol.

Then I walked to Tokyo eki! The buildings around there were like European buildings so it's nice to see a different side of Japan! Kinda reminded me of Kota Tua lol. I think they're mostly office buildings. I wanted to ride the city tour bus but I didn't know how, no english information whatsoever around there, and I didn't find the price list either. Sooooooo I went to akiba instead using the Yamanote line.



I saw the AKB48 cafe right after going outside the eki (station). I used to think that the theater is there as well, but it's actually at the top floor of donki in akiba! I went to donki there to check on some suitcases and bags because I need to buy one for my stuff. Even the dvd they played on the TVs sold there were AKB48 lol.



Akihabara is known for its electronic stuff and anime and manga. There were many anime manga goods store. But I was glad that I found some Johnny's billboards there. I went to animate and some random stores. I looked for tokiya's stuff but I didn't find the one I wanted! So I didn't buy anything there. I went home probably around 6:30pm after failing to hang out at starbucks because it's full af.

Farewell Party

I've arranged 2 farewell parties in the past. I'll get two for myself this year! Actually one has happened on 14th last month. It's the farewell party for exchange students in my uni in Japan! Ironically, I rarely hung out with them. They gave me this message boards and I'm 100% sure most of them didn't know what to write lol.

I was kinda late there (thankfully I wasn't the one who arrived there the latest). They served a loooooot of food. I was grateful that I didn't have to buy dinner that night lol.


I also managed to take some pics with my classmates there! I also finally met another person who likes Johnny's! Well she actually only likes Hey! Say! JUMP. She watched the new year's eve concert on kyocera dome last year! I'm so jealous!

I even took a pic of myself in front of the school! It's dark though lol.



It was quite okay. I got home before it got too awkward. It was already awkward actually because idk I just didn't really have any friends there. I was also too busy searching the news about smap because they were announcing their disband a few days ago and I just knew that day from my friend. It's also the day I lost my flash disk. I was so sad :/
