Pinterest Pics

Hello lovelies, hope you are having a wonderful Good Friday! I don’t really know how to properly celebrate Easter (I mean, I am a Japanese after all), but I am well stocked with egg and bunny shaped chocolates to last till Monday :)

Anyway, today’s post is something I’ve been planning to do for quite a while; these are stuffs I found via mighty Pinterest that made me smile and laugh. I must warn you first that if you are very easily offended, some of the images might be a bit offensive – contains some mildly offensive words and mild (?) nudity. So… here we go! Read More

One year since…

Today marks one year since the magnitude 9.0 earthquake and tsunami struck northeast Japan. As a Japanese, I want to dedicate this post to those who have been supporting Japan and its people.

All the people around the world who prayed, shed tears, gave kind thoughts, donated aids and money for the affected, and all the rescue teams and volunteer workers from around the world who had saved countless lives and helped rebuild the affected areas – I cannot thank enough, but really, thank you. I thank you from bottom of my heart.

Hello from Mr & Mrs Weird

Mr & Mrs Weird 1

Happy Monday everyone, and hope you had lovely weekend! Today’s post has nothing to do with crafts or holiday in Japan, but I just cannot NOT to post it :)

Using Fruits & Veg for Decoration

Fruits & Veg 1

Although I love flowers and plants, I must admit that I’m really bad at growing and arranging them. Even when I come up with a few ideas about floral designs, by the time I put some flowers in a vase, my hands stop because they always look somehow ‘off’.

So, when I went back home to see my parents, I was quite anxious to learn a thing or two about flower arrangements from my mum. Mum loves to use whatever plants she finds in her garden; since it was December and there were not so many plants available, she included a lot of vegetables and fruits in her design. Read More
