Adorable Place You can Barely Find in NYC!

Hiroko's Place

It’s not difficult to find delicate and cute stuffs in Japan when you walk around the street. A lot of restaurants, snack shops, and food stalls often think of special and unique ideas to catch people’s attention and attract customers. I guess that’s how maid / butler / pet theme café come from in Japan. But work attitude is very important also. Don’t you think Japanese food and merchandises are exquisite and lovely? Even a little pack of candy have a very nice packaging design. It is hard to find someone does not like Japanese products because they always make cute and cool stuffs.

Stress and Packing

Sorry for the silence lately; I’ve been pretty busy x____x I’m going to Singapore for an indefinite period of time (but no less than two months), and I’m leaving in a week and a half. The fact that this is so last minute, as well as the facts that I don’t know how long I’m going to be there and I feel as though I’ve been given no say in the matter have been stressing me out so badly, and I haven’t even begun to pack yet. Every time I try, I get so overwhelmed by how much I don’t know about what’s going to happen. And then I ignore the situation x: I have never been very good at dealing with stress, and it’s so much easier to say to yourself, “Sure, I have a lot of things to do, but my friends want to hang out and if I don’t know when I’ll ever see them again, why should I say no?” And then nothing gets done, and tasks start piling up, and it becomes harder to break this cycle. ugh.

But time really is running out, and I thought that maybe if I start packing my makeup, something that cheers me up, I could at least regain some semblance of control over all this, and not feel completely lost when I leave everything I know and 90% of the people I love (my father is from Singapore so I do have family there and at least I won’t be all alone). So here is a progress report of sorts, mostly a way to kick myself into action by putting it up on the internet where the universe sees and remembers 😛

I’m trying my best to think of this as a vacation – I haven’t been back to Singapore since before college, and I do love that place (minus the humidity and the mutant monster mosquitoes!), so I am definitely excited about the food and the shopping and the Asian beauty brands I can’t get here! I don’t want to buy too much in terms of makeup; I already have sooooooo much stuff. But I don’t want to lug all of it with me either – chances are I wouldn’t use most of it. But bringing things I don’t normally reach for will push me out of my comfort zone and force me to actually use things I spent money on! I haven’t finalized these choices yet, so I’ll post again once I’ve decided what I’m bringing.


This is what I’ve packed so far – just basics, pretty much.
