Here is the 3rd instalment of the Friday Random post! This has become my FAVOURITE type of post to write hhahaha its a lot easier to take about a whole bunch of little things than to expect me to write a long post about just one topic. My mind wanders too much XD
1.K-On promotion over at LAWSON Convenience Store
K-on is manga/anime in Japan. Its extremely popular but I dont read it/watch it. Just never got round i suppose. But my best friend likes it quite a lot and tells me its very funny.
So when Lawson started this promotion the bestie asked me go get him some stuff…
i remember i had a friend in Singapore [Hi Miss J!] who saw Yakisoba in another anime and asked me if they truly existed in Japan. I told her they did and attempted to bring her one when i visited her in Singapore XD
So FYI, yes yakisoba bun really does exist in Japan, And yes it is really yakisoba [stir fried soba noodles] inside a bread bun. Its sold widely in high schools [hence why its always in high school animes i think?] Convenience stores also sell them.
Strawberry Jam Toast
Actually there are a lot more special items for sale but the lawson i visited was sold out of most things. As a matter of fact, the bestie said he went to three lawsons and they were sold out too.
You can see Lawson’s webpage on this campaign here http://www1.tdp.to/campaign/k-on/?ca=top_cam_002
2. New finds in the bookstore
Freezing Recipes Mook
There is such a huge influx of mooks lately and its nice to see its not limited to just fashion and makeup related mooks.
Freezing food is such a great idea if you have a big freezer. Its helpful in saving both time and money.
I own several cookbooks on freezing so i skipped on this mook but if you are starting out, this book shows many good principles.
Comes with two tupperware containers
Now I’m thinking of buying it for my sister XD
For those of you also interested in buying a copy , here are some details
Release Date: 2010/11/6
Laduree Sucre Cookbook
Oh yes its from THE Laduree. The afamed Macaron Store from Paris. I visited the store when i was in Paris last year and macarons there taste 10times better than even the Laduree Store here in Tokyo Japan [in Ginza]
Release Date: 2010/10/16
If you buy this book, could you make and mail me some macarons? XD *looks at Miss brvbrd*
3. My latest obsession
i am truly addicted to this soymilk. i dont know why but it tastes REALLY good. Husband doesnt agree with me though. Actually neither do the besties. So perhaps its up to the individual. XD
4. Moomin Stand
Moomin Stand is a new bubble tea store that opened up in Kichijoji less than 2 weeks ago! The cups/straw designs are that of Moomin characters of course! The queue is EXTREMELY long so be prepared to queue.
Details for those who wish to visit
東京都武蔵野市吉祥寺本町1-11-5 コピス吉祥寺A館1F [About 2min walk from Kichijoji Station]
5. Revlon Eyeshadow Quads
I spotted these in a magazine a while ago [think i posted a pic on the blog too] and thought they looked a lot like lunasol quads. Finally got a chance to swatch them. Quality seems really good but the price is quite high for what they are so i didnt get them XD
Retails at 1785yen [About USD$20] Each http://www.revlon-japan.com/promortion/eyeglow_shadow_quad/
6. A lot of icecream XD
Last but not least..i will leave you with a pic of the ice cream parfait i noticed a store offering lately
Look carefully at the size of it compared to the other parfait samples next to it. Yeah..its HUGE!
Its 2200yen [about USD$25] but i guess it would feel a lot of people!??!
My brother in law is an icecream fanatic [Hi O-san!] and my sister and him are visiting me next week. Thinking of taking him here hahahaha
Would you eat it?
If you wish to go, the address is 墨田区江東橋4-27-14, 東京楽天地ビル2F
Thanks everyone for their fantastic emails of concern! really appreciate it!~ Still replying to them all.
Like i said, my sister and brother in law are visiting me next week so i’m going to be busy tidying the house etc so emails might take a really long time to reply as i am also going on a roadtrip soon]
FYI for those who asked, i am still a little sick..it varies from day to day. Not so good today but it doesnt matter cos its FRIDAY! TGIF!
Have an awesome weekend
p.s Dear all, i am not going on my roadtrip till NEXT weekend not this one XD but thank u for the wellwishes XD
