Life at Keio University

It has been a year now.
It was last year around this time, I went to Japan for a year under MEXT scholarship.
It has always been my dream to study in Japan since I was like 17?!
..and after all the shitty things that happened, hardship and passion, I finally made it, having dreams to come true.
Although I’ve been to Japan like a number of times for home-stay programs, exchange programs and holidays but this is my longest stay in Japan.
To those out there who are still striving for your dreams, I would like to cheer on you and just keep in mind that as long as you have the passion and faith, your dream that you’ve been chasing after will come true someday.
Don’t give up even it’s hard cos if it’s an easy thing, why would we even wanna call it a dream, isn’t it?!
Well then, let’s start on with my life at Keio University.
A preserved building since the Meiji period in Mita campus.

♥ at First Sight

My favourite pair of wedges for the time being.
Got this for around 2000 plus yen only during Shibuya Final Bargain Sales in July.
Now I regretted I didn’t get two pairs or more coz at first I actually thought of getting the one in red & white stripes which is very sailor kind of style. (ishhh)
But then, I felt guilty cos I bought too many pair of heels from O1O1 (Japanese pronounce it as Marui) on the same day already.
This pair was LOVE at first sight!

iPhone Case Collection

Here are my precious iPhone Cases that I got mostly from Japan.
I thought I have like 10 or more cases but I actually have around 9 only!!
This means I can get more!! (lol)
(From oldest to latest)
#1 Cupcake case from Ebay /  Customized case from Japan
Both also got my name stamped on!!:)

Gotemba Premium Outlet

On the 16th of this month, me and my friend headed down to Gotemba Premium Outlet for shopping. We expect it would be really crowded since it’s a public holiday (Marine Day) but it turned out to be quite OK (as in normal). We were actually expecting that there will be more shops offering TIME SALES since it’s a holiday and that is why we wouldn’t mind even if it’s really crowded. If you’re wondering what’s TIME SALES, I’ll explain it here. For a time limit, there will be an additional of 10 – 20% discount when you pay your goods at the cashier. For example, lets say you got a 50% off item and during that time limit, you will get an additional of 10% or 20% off when you pay at the cashier. Sometimes, there’s restriction of 2 items and above or a specific amount and above. In that case, you can combine with your friends if you’re not getting that much. It’s really worth it when they’ve TIME SALES!! So, don’t miss this chance if you ever see any shops having TIME SALES in JAPAN. This is the 4th outlet I’ve been to in Japan and all are equally good. It actually depends on what you’re looking for. If you wanna get branded goods like Gucci, Prada, Burberry, Dior, Chloe etc., I think Gotemba Outlet has it all. In fact, I think Gotemba Outlet has the most brands. Also, I find it easier to walk in that Outlet since it does not have 2 levels. The other Outlets I went to like Rinku Premium Outlet (Osaka), Jazz Dream Premium Outlet (Nagoya) and Tama Minami Osawa Mitsui Outlet (Hachioji, Tokyo) has 2 levels, so it’s hard to see everything at one glance since you will get confused and don’t know where to start, if you know what I mean. Here’s the surrounding of this outlet.

Shibuya 7 Days Bargain Sales

Shibuya Summer Sales started today and so happen I don’t have class today so I decided to take this opportunity to shop since today is a weekday and it wouldn’t be so crowded. Yay!! I got 4 pieces of one piece. This time not from my fav brands but from brands like Ank Rouge, Rose Fan Fan and Minirdees. Haven’t got any clothes from any of these brands before but then because most of the clothes I want from my fav brands, I already bought it so I’ve got no choice but to get clothing from other brands now. (LOL~ It’s not like it’s a must but then since it’s cheap so I thought I should get a few) Two one-piece denim, one flowery dress and also checkered dress. It just feels so SUMMER. Hrm..I feel like I’ve so much clothes from Japan now and I actually thought of selling off some of them when I get back. I actually have some which I bought last summer when I was here on a short trip with mum and until now I don’t think I’ve wore it not even once. Should I sell them?! haha
