TOKYO DIARIES 東京旅日記 IV

Friends, you know who you are and this is for you.

Therefore thy kinsmen are no stop to me.

AM SO GONNA MISS THIS LIGHT BROWN SHADE when I inevitably dye my hair chocolate brown/black. I can't be a stewardess looking like this. Well, although black hair has gotta have its perks...
