Peaceful Afternoons.

Merry (belated) Christmas!! Hope everyone had a great one. Mine passed by quietly and wasn't festive at all, since my family doesn't really celebrate Christmas haha.
School starts this Friday and I really, really wish the break could last a little longer. Will miss these relaxing days when I can go to bed late at night, sleep in during mornings, kick back to read or watch movies or k-dramas whenever I want and basically take it slow and easy on everything. Yep that pretty much sums up my holiday hehe. Sadly nothing lasts forever. :( Here are some pictures that reflect some of the quiet afternoons I've been having quite often lately!
Innisfree has got to be one of my favourite things.
Current fav read is too good! Especially when accompanied by a hot cuppa.
Who wouldn't love a nice little Zakka bunny?
Burgundy?
On a side note, let's not forget to remember and hope for the best for the Malaysian flood victims as well as those involved in yet another missing plane incident - AirAsia Flight QZ8501. Way too many calamities have struck in 2014.

Have a Happy New Year everyone!

JAPAN Part I: Tokyo (and Disney Sea!)

I spent the last week of November in the beautiful land of Japan. Next to Korea, it is officially my favorite country! Not to mention it was autumn while I was there, one of the most scenic periods of the year (according to tourists). I've dreamed of stepping foot in this country ever since I was ten, and Japan certainly didn't disappoint! Everything about this place amazes or at least intrigues me; its culture, mother tongue, colours (well for me at that time there was a lot yellow, red and orange) and the PEOPLE. People there are so terribly friendly and helpful and warm they make a foreigner feel almost at home. I hope I'm not exaggerating, but on my part that's exactly how I felt when interacting with the Japanese, whether young or old. And the FOOD, how could I forget the food! Every meal was a feast, and a healthy one too. As you will confirm later on, I have almost no pictures of food, because every time a dish was served it looked so awfully inviting that you just had to dig in instantly, even without a proper photo.
Landmarks and destinations to note in this series are: Tokyo Station, Imperial Garden, Shibuya and its crosswalk (my favourite!) and Disney Sea, :)
Will have a second post soon on more pictures from this trip! Thanks for reading, :)
