Day 1: Tokyo
Greetings from Tokyo! I wandered around Shinjuku today, not up to taking the train at all. Shinjuku seems much more busy and rushed to me. Maybe I'm just getting older! The view from my hotel room looks quite nice. I can see Lumine. Rather nice hotel I'm staying in this time, very near Shinjuku Station, just 1 block away! And first time I had early check-in, so I could shower and freshen up before hitting the shops! The hotel provides Polar shower gel, shampoo and conditioner. And Shiseido face wash and shaving cream! I really planned very badly for this trip! I changed too little cash in yen, it's stressing me out to try to spend enough to sign for it on the card! Plus, I also don't know why my baggage is so heavy even before I started shopping. :( Here are few little things I bought today. Had to get some "smelly" Lush fix, and Fancl is cheaper here, so I hauled a bunch of their whitening stuff. The SA said, "Hooh, aaaall whitening neh??!!" Haha. I bought a Perfect Whitening Kit (Limited Edition) that worked out to be quite abit of savings. I forgot to take a pic. Maybe later. Anwyay, I didn't know why but the elusive makeup suddenly seemed unattractive ... but I think I will go back to get some. Actually the makeup at the Changi Airport duty free seemed more attractive. I regret not getting the Chanel glosses (will ask the husband to pick them up for me). Right now, I'm lemming a pink Samantha Tavatha bag I saw this afternoon. Should I buy it? Finally, I'm so dehydrated and dried up! Had to drink up a whole lot of water. I ate miso ramen for lunch and persimmon leaf sushi for dinner, but forgot to take photos. Haha. Ok, see you later! I'm going to have an early night! © Copyright. All rights reserved.
