Catching up~☆★~♪  
Been back at work, been hanging out with friends a lot recently. I have been trying to stay cheerful, but honestly, my mood has been like a rollercoaster-- going from up to down to up to mad to sad to up again in moments.. Overall, I think that I feel frustrated, and I am going to blame it on something. Yes. It is the fault of the weather.

The big building that looks like Big Ben at the Shinjuku Southern Terrace. I don't know what it is though....

This is a vending machine, with a typical thing that you find in a japanese vending machine: corn soup. Yes, that's CORN SOUP. Wtf? I"ve never figured out how corn soup fits together in between hot cocoa and canned coffee. Even better, this one is "gentle corn soup". At least it won't break your heart! ^^

This is what yakiniku is like... for yakiniku, you order raw meat and then cook it yourself at the table. It's really good ♥ Though mostly because yakiniku sauce is probably the most delicious sauce in the world. Can you show me something better? I dare you!!

This was our yakiniku bill. Check out the total: ¥PP12. How much is that? I think it's some sort of secret code!!

I looooooooooooved this advertisement that I saw in Tokyo station so much that I took a picture of it! Isn't it awesome? =D Ever since I was a kid, I have loved dinosaurs. =^__^=

Here is Shinjuku at night as taken from the top floor of the Takashimaya department store.

Me in the Shinjuku Southern Terrace Starbucks, where you can find me more often than is probably good for me. XD;; I'm sporting Ami-chan's awesome hat =D

Matsumoto and Orihime get some lovin'!

Be careful what you order at the tonkatsu restaurant!! Would you rather Grass Wine or Woo long tear?

And don't forget Japannese Tonkat(s)u. =D I'm not sure what an All STER Combo is but... it sounds yummy?

A drawing that I did the other day, but I messed it up.. ^_^;; this was before it got really bad. Oh well, I was just messing around!

Shinjuku again..

Me messing around in Takashimaya. =D I took pictures from this place last summer too (do you remember?) I am wearing Matsumoto's necklace! ♥

I really like this one!!! ^___^

LOL Yesterday I was in Shinjuku and saw these in Don Quixote.... they're dirty candies!!

Oppai (booby) candies! (It also says: "milk inside!")

O-chinchin (honorable penis) chocolate.

"H shitaku naru" ("I want to start doing naughty things") chocolate. XD;;

They were cheap, so I was almost tempted to buy them..... but what would I do with them? LOL

It's not the coldest winter that I've been in, by a long shot. But it feels like the longest and the coldest. Seriously, it's mid-January, shouldn't it be starting to get warmer by now?? The solstice was weeks ago, and I've been having to wear a heavy coat for months already! >.< And it doesn't help that going outside is so cold that it's uncomfortable. I wish that I controlled the weather, because Tokyo would be a warm, tropical place. Climate control = the superpower that I would wish for!! I just want to be able to go outside and walk around and feel comfortable. I really do miss the outdoors.

My room smells like vanilla because I put vanilla drops in the humidifier <3

Eh, the necklace looks nice~ & awesome hat!
The yakiniku bill hurt my brain ^^;;
Such beautiful pictures of shinjuku, now I miss Tokyo even more!

Ah, spring will be here before you know it~!
Before you know it you'll be wearing tank tops, smelling asian sweat.

Aaaaaaah I can't wait!! I will take the rank smell of sweat over the freezing winter cold any day!! If I have to wear extra stuff just to go outside (and still am not comfortably warm), then it's not good weather!

Speaking of pictures, you promised to send me the ones you took last week!

Oh, and my sister is going to get here on the 29th and I get paid the next day. We should show her around Tokyo! And celebrate for my new job and the fact I'm going to be in Japan for another while. I think she's going to be heavily jetlagged on that day though, so maybe the next week (first Monday of February). I know you work, but we won't stay out too late. Sab's only 16 and she usually goes to bed at 10ish at night (because she's a good girl like that... >_>;; A lot more mature than I was at her age).
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 22nd, 2007 10:27 am (UTC)
Aah, I forgot!! I just sent them to your yahoo mail now. =^__^=

Sure, I'd love to show her around and hang out!! ^__^ Sounds like fun! I checked my schedule and I have the 7th off, so instead of the 5th if you have that day free and she's still going to be there we could spend a longer time together. ^^ Or on the 4th too would be good-- I work but I don't have to worry about the next morning either. ^^

He's in Singapore at the moment and will return to Japan next month. I was wondering would you like to teach him proper English ^^; He would need some help when he goes back.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 23rd, 2007 05:23 am (UTC)
Thanks for thinking of me. ^_^ Right now I don't do private lessons, (I help out friends when they ask, but real lessons aren't for me) but I can recommend him a few of my friends here if he'd like. ^^

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 23rd, 2007 05:22 am (UTC)
Oh yeah, I saw those!! =D I wanted to buy them, but they were too expensive ^_^;; Too bad, because what could be better than snuggling up between a couple of boobies and falling asleep? =D

Don't feel old-- just feel lucky that you can apply (or have gotten?) a permanent resident visa!! ^o^ Yeah, this winter is a lot milder than the last two. I can't understand why I'm having such a problem. I'd say that it's because of where I'm living, but I went through last winter in the same apartment so that can't be it... It just seems like, for some reason, I'm constantly colder than last year. That might be something that I should look into....

Hot canned oden!! =D I've seen pictures, but somehow I"m too scared to try them... Oden scares me sometimes even when it's fresh! (I have a hard time figuring out what the difference is between oden and shabu shabu, except the price of course...)

thank you for the pictures! It's really nice!

Oh, the drawing's gorgeous! :D I love the colouring (as usual), and the hand drawing the squiggle especially, with the angle of the pen and all. The perspective of the drawing is magnificent--being on the other side of the glass.

Hope that your mood is and stays great! *huggles*

As for the "naughty candies"...o_O Soup in the vending machine I can still understand (maybe it's cold, that's why it's "gentle", though cold soup can be quite a sad thing to drink). But naughty candies,... !!

Ooooh, I miss Japan! But I'll be back in April! ^^

♥ Oh god, that looks really yummy. Hahaha. I love the drawing. :D There are just beautiful pictures!! :D Florida has been the same thing as Tokyo except, I believe its much more warmer. ♥
milkyway85 on January 22nd, 2007 01:45 pm (UTC)
T_T I feel really "homesick" now...
your pictures look great! and so does your drawing. I hope you can make your dream come true.

oh, I added you some days ago... yoroshiku onegai shimasu
Julietjulzbat on January 22nd, 2007 02:00 pm (UTC)
Ah, the yakiniku sounds lovely. Although, excuse my ignorance, I was wondering what tonkatsu was?

Shinjuku looks quite busy, and quite pretty all lit up at night.

XD I was thinking, I bet if my brother came across those naughty candies while he was raiding my comfort stash, he might choke while laughing think twice.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 22nd, 2007 09:43 pm (UTC)
It's breaded and deep-fried pork or other meats. ^^ It's good, though I rarely if ever have it. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tonkatsu
cryduchatcryduchat on January 22nd, 2007 03:04 pm (UTC)
Boob candies have milk inside?? That is possibly the most awesome thing I have ever seen!
zero to sixty0260clothing on January 22nd, 2007 03:16 pm (UTC)
whoa, i lol'ed so hard at "stop the aids" candy. Is that wrong? :D
I am so envious of you. You can draw, you are so pretty, and you live in f*cking Tokyo. Gahhhh! XD
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on January 22nd, 2007 09:45 pm (UTC)
Hehee, I believe there's actually a condom inside there... =D But I didn't buy it to make sure (as if I need one lol).

Don't be envious! ^^ Instead, make your dreams come true! ^^
