Takeshita Dori in Harajuku

Although every time I come to Japan I always visit this area, I haven't properly blogged about Takeshita Dori in Harajuku yet. Takeshita Dori is the most famous street in Harajuku area, and widely popular because it's the home of Japanese Street Fashion. You can't go to Japan without visiting this street at least once. Everyday the street is full of people and tourists, and during weekend you can spot crazier fashion style people walking around

Harajuku is within Yamanote Line and it is 1 station away only from Shibuya, the gal district. Although the fashion style is totally different against each other, in fact the area is so close. You can even save 130 yen by spending 10-15 minutes walking to Shibuya!

Here's a blog post specialised for Takeshita Dori!

The Clinic Aesthetic at Pacific Place

I was invited to do body treatment and laser by The Clinic Aesthetic at Pacific Place. I had many invitation to try this and there but usually I am very picky for my aesthetic care in the last few years so I only want to say yes to a few of my choices. The Clinic became one of my choices to try the service, but because I don't want to do laser for my face, I only agreed for the body treatment

Alice in Wonderland Cafe in Shinjuku, Tokyo

Took me a while for publishing this post because this place is so amazing and beautiful so I had too many pictures, but finally it's here! Last time for Kokoro no Tomo TV Shooting, I had to introduce a kawaii cafe in Japan for Indonesian audience. So during the scene where I talked with Kokoro-chan, we decided to get the set at Alice in Wonderland Cafe in Shinjuku. In fact there are many Alice in Wonderland Cafes thorough Tokyo and Osaka, but we just picked the Shinjuku branch because the producer said so lol

It was my first time at the Cafe but I made sure to take many pictures for you all! It is definitely one of the most magical places I have ever visited in Japan and while you're here, please read till the end because there are many pictures to please your eyes with the magic of kawaii

5 Basic Tips to Take Beautiful Photos

Behind every good photos lies the effort the photographers put to take a single shoot. Although I am not a professional photographer but because of being a blogger, I have to provide photos on my blog and make sure that I am taking it with my best effort. With years of experience being a blogger (although I still don't know what my photography style is lol), I think I manage to take good photos more than my friends. This time I am talking about me as the photographer, which means I take photos of food, travel places, and products, not a selfie

Serious derp face when taking photos lol

Next to me is a journalist from Cita Cinta Magazine. Look at our similar angle of taking photos, as well as the pose LOL This was taken candidly and I was laughing cos well, maybe this is how people usually take photos ? ? Or is it just journalist and bloggers?
But to be honest, I think I look different when I am behind and in front of camera lol

Anyway without further ado so, here are my 5 tips for you =

Broken Doll Make Up Tutorial

Ok I know it's super late

This tutorial was supposed to be published at Last Halloween but unfortunately my laptop broke down 3 times repeatedly and I kept losing the files or unable to work on my laptop. The file however was saved by Elle's laptop so I still can do this now, but it's super late so I deeply apologise

This is meant to be collaboration with Elle & Jess as our Halloween collab. However Jess couldn't join our last minute collab, and I couldn't even finish it on time. Elle had published her own version long before though, you can read it here . Make up tutorial is really difficult to film by yourself, so I record Elle's version, while Elle helped me to do mine

I think this collab is kinda messy and horror, as expected of Halloween wtf. We faced so many problems

  • We used Elle's DSLR to film, and it is "memory card is full" many times
  • Not to mention the battery shuts down many times so we had to charge - shoot - charge - shoot
  • Later Elle mentioned that her battery seemed to be broken wtf, but luckily it turned out NOT
  • I bumped into her lightings set wtf not broken though but we had heart attack
  • Elle & Jess mirror was broken to pieces during the shooting FOL [fuck our life]
  • We had to shoot it until dawn, just for a few minutes of tutorial!!!
  • My laptop broke down 3 times, files kept missing & I had to pay a lot for the service
  • I left my fav Japanese shoes at Jess' car and we kept forgetting this lol
and maybe more stuffs, but I forget lol

However it's fun to do this with Elle. Even though this collab is very last minute!! ><

You can watch the video tutorial HERE

Btw a lot of people mentioned this is Annabelle inspired make up, but to be honest, I haven't even watched the movie yet
I did this because I was inspired by Japanese Vlogger, Sasaki Asahi. She did this last Halloween. Super love her!

I hope for our next collab to come up soon!

See you guys on my next post!  photo 21_zpsd46e6a3a.png photo 21_zpsd46e6a3a.png photo 21_zpsd46e6a3a.png
