Circle Meet up and Forever 21

Two weeks ago we had another circle meet up. I really was looking forward to this day not just because of the meet, more because of our plans:
We wanted to go to Sea Life Center and I wished sooo hard finally to pet some rays after we came to late on my birthday in Kasai Rinkai Koen.
But...the plan didn't come together *sigh*.

My standard make up with usual lashes, so nothing special that day. I wore my Garula onepiece. I love that thing 'cause it's comfy but also stylish.

At 2 p.m. we met at Neo Tokyo. That was a really good idea 'cause I wanted to have a look for a new magazine.
Our group was very small. We are around 17 members but were only 7 and poor Tama had to go to work after saying 'hello' to us. So we just were 6 persons.

Of course I bought the new egg magazine. There was a small d.i.a. bag as gimmick inside. Unfortunately you can't see the logo very well on the bag and also it's small. That sucks!
But I love the issue and the new models, especially Maipuu.

After leaving Neo Tokyo we spent some time at the café beside to talk about our meeting plans and so... no Sea Life Center for me (´Д` )
I was really sad but happy that they also quit the other option to visit the Barbie Dreamhouse. So we decided to go to Forever 21, the new opened store at Ku'damm.

So we took the subway and ended up at Zoologischer Garten. We were looking forward to visit the first shop of Forever 21 in Germany.

The store is located very central. Before the was a big book store inside. And it was really nice. The prices are okay, they have some cute clothes, looot of cool accessories and it's not that crowd like Primark.

I just bought a ribbon ring and an earring but I saw a lot of nice clothes. It's hard to keep money but for me it's more important to safe my money for Japan ^^

After that shopping trip we had a short break for refreshing our make up and decided what to do next. And Lau did some outfit pictures and made this nice cut:

Also my friend Fluff picked us up at Ku'damm. She's not into Gyaru fashion but...who cares? We had a lot of fun, like always.

Afterwards we went to a cocktail bar called 'Oase' at Friedrichstraße. It was sooo nice, weather was awesome and so we took place outside.

We had some cocktails [Mojito ftw!] and talked about Gyaru and non-Gyaru topics. And I was happy to talk to Goof 'cause she told me a lot of her An Cafe tour she did with Senja and I was so excited! I want to do such a tour, too! ( ´ ▽ ` )ノ

my big bad fat tuna pizza
Senja and Goof had to leave in the early evening to get their train back but the other girls stayed a little longer and I shared a shisha with Thanan and Tine.

Around midnight we said goodbye. It was a really nice day even we didn't visited the Sea Life Center. But...maybe next time.

Last weeks and recent things

Just some gathered things from the last weekends.

Two weeks before I met up with Lau. We hadn't seen for ages and wanted to chat a little bit so we visited our good, old Ring Center, a shopping mall.

After a long time I used my pink strands 'cause I started to think about an outfit for the Golden Bomber live in August.

My coord that day was simple. Black shirt and leo belt from H&M, mini skirt from Tally Weijl and my new fringe boots, off brand.
That would be maybe the basic for the live. The shirt will get a white print, maybe something like 'I wanna f*ck the guitarist', depended on the H&M shirts 'I fancy the lead singer' and 'I prefer the drummer' xD

Of course, we strolled through the shops and made our obligatory pictures at H&M changing room. Aaaand finally I found something:

I bought this funny watermelon bag, also for the live outfit. As you know, I've got a passion for Kyan Yutaka, the guitarist of Golden Bomber, so my accessoires should have to do something with him.

Some time ago he tried to eat a watermelon nearly at every live or TV appearence within 1 second so the watermelon is something special for me *lol*...
Also he likes Gachapin & Mukku and I found at web some cute nail designs I want to have for the live.

This is sooo cute. I have to look for some figures like that *O*

Speaking of Gachapin, at H&M we found at kids department a green huge dinosaur so I called him the German Gachapin, ha ha...

Lau put on an Elmo plush from Sesam Street and so we had our German way of Gachapin & Mukku in green and red...we loughed so hard.
Since my last trip to Japan I'm really addicted to Gachapin stuff.

My gets that day were only that watermelon bag, a present from Lau she bought at her London trip for me and a book.

cute strawberry hair clips from Lau
I bought 'The hobbit' 'cause I love Tolkien and the movie. I owned that book a few years but when I moved it got lost. So at the moment I'm reading it again in the evening when I go to bed.

Inspired by the Gachapin nails I found at web I tried out some design for my foot nails. It was my really first try so it's a little bit messy.

Even it doesn't look like this but it took me hours and I needed 7 different nail polishes. For my first try I was satisfied with the result.

At following weekend Lau and I decided to go to Crepe Station after a long time. The Crepe Station is a small café with lovely and nice stuff, great hot and cold drinks [they also have matcha latte] and the best:
They make crepes in Japanese style, sooo delicious!

iced matcha latte
kiwi strawberry crepe
I really can recommend it when you live in Berlin or are here for a visit.
So we had a nice and relaxed Sunday with chatting and eating crepes.

And last but not least: An Cafe released their new single 'Bee myself bee yourself' at 12th June. The song isn't that special I expected but quite nice and all guys are looking great...okay, except Miku.
I don't like his red hair and his outfit is really kinda gay but... I don't care about him.

If you are from Germany you need a proxy to watch it, I'm sorry... fu**ing GEMA >.<
So...what do you think? Do you like it? I really wish I could see An Cafe live when I'm in Tokyo but at that time they are at Nagasaki and that's too far for me.

But more I'm looking forward to the Golden Bomber live ... only 47 days left....

14th day and departure ~ goodbye Tokyo

Sorry, I just wanted to start my blog entry like Kiryuuin-kun  >.<
So, here's my last post about Tokyo.

Michi, Aya-chan and I started, like always, with a breakfast at Tully's Café. Then we went to Shibuya once again 'cause we wanted to spend our last money there.

 I wore my new Ma*rs top which I got also from Kaoru-chan. She gave it to me 'cause it's too small for her. Really hard to believe.

Our first way was to Tower Records. Michi wanted to have a look for Kenji's book 'Best of Obama Blog 2' and that day she was a lucky girl 'cause she got the really first book.

happy Michi xD
I wasn't that lucky like Michi 'cause my DVD I wanted to buy wasn't in stock there so I hope that Aya-chan will order it for me soon.
Then we went back to the station. Kaoru-chan was waiting for us at Hachiko and we decided first to have lunch 'cause we all were hungry again xD
So we went to a nice Udon and Soba restaurant near Shibuya 1o9.

I had a tasty soba soup with tempura. The waiters were very kind, we got water and also tea for free but I didn't like the tea.

At that time I started to become melancholic like every time after a wonderful journey. I knew that I will miss Japan and especially my beloved girls, Aya-chan and Kaoru-chan.
After lunch we went to Shibuya 1o9. I wanted to have a last look at the shops there and also buy some things for Lau who gave me another wishlist.
Michi left to go a last time to the department stores to buy some kitchen stuff like bento boxes. She's not that crazy about clothes and make up like me.

I just bought that lovely top at d.i.a. and some lashes at SBY. Then I was nearly on the rocks 'cause I lost some money and I dunno where and when. That pissed me off. So I safed my last money for something to eat and the ticket to the airport.

ground floor of 109

my lovely friends
After leaving the 1o9 we had some time left before we wanted to meet Michi again so we decided to visit the Game Center for taking purikura.

I really love my girls and I'm happy that I was able to spend a lot of time with them. They are really different characters and I know that they won't become the best friends but both are sooo kind and I can't await to see them again!

At Hachiko where we met Michi later on it was crowd like hell but I just wanted to sit there a while and enjoy and safe that peaceful moment in my mind. Then I had to say goodbye to Kaoru-chan. It was unbelievable for me that the time was over.

Aya-chan, Michi and I went for dinner to an Izakaya. I wanted to have this athmosphere for a last moment. We ate different kinds of fishes. I'm not that into fish but it was really delicious.
Then we went back to hotel. We had to pack our suitcases and I didn't know how I got my gets into my luggage but...somehow it worked ha ha...
And the last night in Japan we always have an earthquake! So we hadn't slept well and Aya-chan was worried.

The next morning Aya-chan said goodbye at Daimon Station. We started to cry, like always, when we have to say goodbye. Michi and I went to Narita Airport.

I was angry 'cause a security guy took 2 of my 3 lighters but I was too tired to object. I was only one time awaken: At the passport control Michi said: "So, you're going to the styler now!" 'cause the guy behind the counter was very good looking xD

Then it was time to leave Japan behind. The flight was okay, but the meal just bad! I was happy to had some matcha chocolate and other stuff from Family Mart.

But the onigiri snacks were tasty. So I just tried to sleep, asked Michi Japanese vocabulary and then watched a movie.

Thorin Oakenshield
Happy Kiki was happy when she recognized that 'The Hobbit' was shown. So I watched that movie and forgot about my pain to go back to Germany.
I really love 'The Hobbit' and also the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
After arriving at Frankfurt I seperated from Michi. She had to take her flight to Duesseldorf and I had to go back to Berlin
In Berlin - Tegel Lau picked me up at the airport. I was very thankful that someone was there for me so I gave her the things I've bought for her and I guess, she was happy, too (^o^)

Also I got another birthday present from Lau: She sewed me a small cute bag for cosmetics. 

Cute like hell, isn't it? She's sooo talented! And I really love to get selfmade presents so much! 

Well... now I'm finished with my report about my third journey to Japan. I really miss my friends there, the life, the lights of Tokyo, the food, the smell, just everything!
I'm really looking forward to my next trip to Tokyo. Only 55 days left...

13th day ~ my birthday at Kasai Rinkai Koen

みんなさんこんにちは! Please don't think that I'm too blonde to count...after day 11th day should follow the 12th but that day I just had a small hangover and did nothing special so... let's continue with my birthday.
After a nice breakfast we went to the station to pick up Kaoru-chan who wanted to spend the day with us.
Just in time it started to rain and we went back to hotel to take our umbrellas and I got my first birthday present that day.

I got that lovely Ma*rs dress from Kaoru-chan and also a Ma*rs top. I was totally stunned about such an expensive present but, of course, kind of happy.

I lent my coat Kaoru-chan and then we left hotel. Michi had planned for my birthday a boat trip and I was excited but because of the rain we just took JR Line and went to Kasai Rinkai Koen, where a big aquarium should be. I loooove fishes so that was Michis best idea ever *O*

After arriving the weather was sunny. Bitchy weather God! First we had lunch 'cause I was so hungry. I had Tempura, very delicious.

I dunno what we did there in front of the restaurant...the egg-pose or what? LOL

Then in the late afternoon we entered the aquarium. I was very thankful 'cause Michi organized that for me and also she paid my tickets that day so... it's really cool to have birthday ha ha...
When you read this: Thank you, Michi, for that nice day. I will always keep it in my memories.

I was excited to see hammerhead sharks there. I'm really crazy about sharks, they are just beautiful and so interesting. 

search picture: what do you see? xD
I was surprised, they also had penguins in a big compound outside. They were really lovely and we watched them for a while. Kaoru-chan loves penguins.

I was sooo sad that we came too late to pet the rays. Rays are sooo cute and I hope I will have an opportunity to do it once more.

cute Kaoru-chan
Then we had to leave 'cause the aquarium was closing. Now we wanted to take the ferry back to Tokyo and went through the park but unfortunately we were too late - like always on that day *sigh*

But the park was nice and we found some signs that spring is on the way! There were some colorful tulips, my favourite flowers, so it was the perfect birthday present to me ^^

We left by train and went straight to Shinjuku 'cause Kaoru-chan had made an reservation at an Izakaya but when we arrived we still had time so I took a look at Ma*rs shop there but bought nothing.

Kaoru-chan bought some shoes at another shop.

At Izakaya Yosuke-kun joined us and I was so surprised that he really had a birthday present for me even I had seen him just one time.
He's sooo kind and looked really smart with his suit he wore that day. He just arrived from work.

He knew that I'm addicted to Gachapin so he gave me a cute charm and a small bag. I was loughing so hard 'cause I was so happy.

We ordered some starters like always and, of course, my beloved Yakisoba. Kaoru-chan commanded Yosuke-kun to sit beside me 'cause we both were smoking and that was too much for poor Kaoru-chan.

After some time we left Izakaya and said 'goodbye' to Yosuke-kun 'cause he had to work tomorrow. But at Shinjuku station we picked up Aya-chan and I was glad to see her on my birthday.
I wanted to go to Karaoke with my girls and we ended up in...
Kabukichō! ! !

Kabukichō! ! !
At Tokyo's red light district we found a Karaoke bar and reserved a room for one hour included one alcoholic drink.

Michi and I started - of course! - with 'Memeshikute' of Golden Bomber. After singing we recognized that also the versions of Memeshikute in other languages were available so Kaoru-chan and Aya-chan asked us to sing it in German. tut mir weeeeh xD
It was funny, we sang Oasis, ABBA, Taio Cruz and all had a try for me at 'Attack No. 1', an old anime song.
And finally I got another birthday present from Aya-chan and guess what? Of course, Gachapin stuff ha ha...

It's a cooling pillow and I'm sure that I will take that thing in August with me to Tokyo! In August Japan ist just hot x___X

me with Aya-chan and Kaoru-chan
After leaving we strolled a little bit through Kabukichō and I was staring at some hosts who were standing at some corners.

With last Yamanote train we left Shinjuku and I had a really nice birthday so... thank you Michi, Kaoru-chan, Aya-chan and Yosuke-kun. I love you all.
