[DIARY] True Stories of Lucid Dreaming and Sleep Paralysis

Lately I’ve been experiencing lucid dreaming, in which I find myself in total control of when or where I get to cease a dream. It’s been contended that this period of dreaming is not a state of sleep but a period of wakefulness. I beg to differ. How could a wakeful phase occupy such an extensive period of restfulness? […]

TOKYO DIARIES 東京旅日記 IV

Friends, you know who you are and this is for you. I’ve always read about Chiba Prefecture in Murakami’s works and although Narita isn’t my favourite Japanese tourist spot, there is so much to see and shopping to do! Whuddup – look at these fluffy kitties I found: Lunch was mediocre chashuu ramen and some […]

Dolce Tokyo, SG

Had the worst Matcha Latte in my entire life at Dolce Tokyo, 313 Somerset, this evening. Beautiful place, but terrible matcha latte – such a disappointment and shame to claim its affiliation to Tokyo! The drink was so diluted and watered down that the matcha powder wasn’t fully dissolved, so it tasted so much like […]

Momi & Toy’s Crêperie モミアンドトイズ ホテルに戻って行く前に、モミアンドトイズで夕食のためにクレープを食べる。私は驚いている!店舗売りバブルティー。良い!バブルティーは、香港で一般的な飲み物だったが、今では非常にまれである。 トレンドは終わった。モミアンドトイズは、日本の優れたクレープのレストランの一つです。 An early dinner at Momi & Toy’s Crêperie before heading back to the hotel for a nap. Surprised to see bubble tea being sold in Odaiba! A couple of years back it was such a common sight in Hong Kong but nowadays it’s rare to find bubble tea stalls on the streets. […]

HONOLULU COFFEE 第2日目には私たちは昼食に寿司を持っていた後に、私はホノルルカフェでコーヒーを楽しんだ。 Afternoon coffee at Honolulu Café after a hearty sushi lunch. This pretty café from Hawaii is located at the food and restaurants level of Diver City, Odaiba. I had the Nutty Hawaiian Kona Frost (ナティハワイアン コナフロスト), a frosty blend of hazelnut and macadamia with a tinge of coconut juice and some espresso. […]

TOKYO DIARIES 東京旅日記

How to tell tourists apart from locals in Tokyo: spot the ones with ginormous bags of コンビニ (konbini – convenience store) buys! 観光客が日本で食品に多くを費やす。私が重い袋でお台場から帰って来ました。  今回は、多くのスナック、菓子、チョコレート、大福や化粧品を買った。私は家族が幸せに食べていることを望んで食べ物を買いました。 If ever I were to stay in Japan for a long period of time, snacks and various knick-knacks would consume me. My luggage came home filled with crackers, Starbucks matcha lattes, daifuku […]

oo2 ✦ Dangerous Mind ✦

Don’t you think you’ve had enough Do their claws make sores Take my hand and come away “We have with us a fresh face from Seoul, where many of you were from. Make him feel welcome. Please come in, Max.” Stoicly, Max stepped in. He scanned the classroom, his gaze never faltering when his eyes […]

plugged into my iPod under my umbrella in the rain

Nobody knows we were meant to arrive in somebody else’s life for reasons so obscure we speculate, and plunge into the same mistakes, putting a name, a cause, a title, a status allowing them to stay. I’m listening to your favourite overrated songs; button sunken from the days you’d hit replay. Plugged into my iPod […]
