Random Back-From-Holiday Post

Hiya'll!! I'm home finally! Spent yesterday unpacking (basically just dumping everything into the cupboards and laundry baskets haha) and lazing at home. I forgot to buy alot of stuff! I need to plan another holiday hahaha. One of the things I missed out on buying was a Samantha Thavasa bag! I asked the girl at the shop in Shinjuku and she said she'll reserve the bag at Narita shop for me. It'll save me about a few hundred yen for duty free? But she failed to tell me the shop is at Terminal 2. So, when I arrived at Terminal 1, there was no shop nor bag for me! *SOB* Fortunately, I bought the wallet. I bought 2, 1 for my mum for Mother's Day (she LOVED it .. keke.) The SA told me it's a design that's sold only in that shop in Tokyo, so it's a good thing! I didn't get the charms I wanted though, because I thought I wanted to look at them at the airport. *SOB again* My cousin is back in Tokyo/Yokohama now, and will return home soon. Should I ask her to get the Thavasa bag for me? Another few hundred dollars would get me another LV bag though, so maybe I shouldn't, since I always prefer LV anyway. I do want some Thavasa Petite charms though. *Scatterbrain* I can't post haul photos, it's too daunting haha. So I'll show you some random food I ate (I ate too much to show you everything lol!) I wasn't very diligent with photos on this trip though. I didn't photograph everything I ate nor everything I saw ... but you'll notice, I really love strawberry :p. holiday 003copy (Lalaport Toyosu, Tokyo) holiday 014copy (Myeong Dong, Seoul) holiday 026copy holiday 09 001copy holiday 09 016copy (Tokyo) holiday 09 013copy holiday 09 010copy holiday 09 014copy (Seoul) And some random shots from Seoul and Tokyo. holiday 044copy (Seoul, some palace, I forgot the name haha) holiday 028copy (View from my hotel in Myeong Dong, Seoul. That LG sign in the middle? It's actually a huge LCD display that shows ads and tv programmes haha!) holiday 022copy (Tokyo) I also had a mini "adventure" returning to Tokyo from Seoul. We were on a late night flight and I was stopped for a luggage check. The officer (guy) rummaged through my luggage and at some point, I think he continued looking because he was simply curious about the stuff I bought! He kept asking me, "What's this?" And I in turn reply, "Shampoo," or "face wash" or "makeup". And he said, "Souvenir? So much?" etc. I think initially I was stopped because I fit a profile, "Single female traveller, coming in on a late night flight" but after he looked in my luggage, he was just amazed that I could have bought so much stuff. He must have thought I was smuggling stuff in all the bottles and containers hahahaha!!! Anyway, when I was returning home, I found my check-in luggage had another kilo or two to spare (before hitting the max allowance) and I heard myself saying, "Oh! I could have bought a few more bottles of this and that!" Hahaha, true blue shopping addict, am I not? Ok, I'm off for lunch with a couple of old friends! One of them is back here visiting, from Melbourne where she now lives. See ya'll later!! © Copyright. All rights reserved.
