Oh my... I really suck at blogging big time!

I meant to blog about my hectic week months ago and I totally forgotten bout it.

For the past month or so, I've been busy trying to keep my bok choy seedlings from dying, been busy working on some freelance design to make some extra cash to fund my natural beauty products and been busy trying to submit as many p.o's as possible... (that's what my coll. said)  P.O. sent. Waiting for delivery...

Anyways, 2 months ago I had to go to Japan for work purpose. After coming back from Japan, I had to follow up with the piled up work from office and on top of that, a cousin of mine that I haven't seen for 13 years came down for a short holiday from Glasgow with her husband and 3 beautiful children. They are all so grown up and looking at them makes me feel old....!! *that feeling really sucks...*

Oh well... Back to my trip...
Before heading to Japan, the only food that I was so looking forward to eat was their Ramen.

That's the only food I really miss eating ever since I tried the real 'stuff' 5 years ago.

Sad to say that I didn't pass by any ramen shop while I was there due to the tight schedule. But this time around I DID manage to try some new food and 'drinks'.
Udon(yes, I didn't manage to eat Udon on my first trip), Oden, Chikuwabu and oh... ShoChu... (which I did not manage to snap any pictures)

I spent what ever time I had at Muji, drugstores and supermarkets. Which I had miss out from my last trip there.

Made my way to Muji at Yurakucho (apparently its the biggest shop) from the supplier's office on my day at 4.30pm.

Spent a couple of hours there before my feet was starting to give up on me.*again it was my shoe problem*

On my way back to the hotel. I stopped by at local supermarkets to stock up some Japanese snacks and to my surprise, I found the particular Jamaican Rum that my mom was hunting for her fruit cake, which we can't get it here locally. I was ecstatic when I saw it on the shelf and grab hold of 2 big bottles. (I just found out recently that the airport in Australia has it!)

I just couldn't help myself...
Donated a couple of $$ to Muji before leaving the land of the rising sun.
