Happy new year~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

YO!

For the last couple of months, and ever since I started making my own chai at home, I’ve been obsessed over ginger. I’ve always been a fan of commercial ginger ale, but it was on my trip to Japan this past March when I had a cold bottle of Asahi Wilkinson Ginger Ale at Itasoba Kaoriya (板蕎麦 香り家) in Ebisu (Tokyo), a place for soba suggested by uzaigaijin. :P After that, I spent my whole trip having ginger ale in Japan, on top of bottled Kirin Milk Tea, lol

Since then, I’ve been having ginger tea, and now— my cousin has started making ginger ice-cream as per my request xD A couple of weeks ago, my mother came over with half a bottle of Fever-Tree Premium Ginger Beer, which is just carbonated ginger water with some sugar. They also offer a Ginger Ale, as well as a Light Ginger Beer, so maybe the spice flavor is more intense on this one. I loveeeeee it.

The only bad thing is that it’s imported, so it’s kinda expensive~ considering there’s tons of locally-grown ginger, but the food industry (as an industry, not small commerce) is so lacking. It pains me to see snacks, ice creams and sodas of the same flavors churned over and over again with a different name.

Here it is! My final list of 2016~

I usually post my Top50 right after my Music Highlights, but my schedule has been all wonk this year. I know I’m very inactive on this blog, but I still hope the very few of you that still visit the site had a wonderful holiday week and that you are having a blast this New Year’s Eve. I wish for y’all’s good fortune this coming 2017 because we know we’ve had a rough 2016. Let us all recharge, and cross fingers for some very need good vibes~

Leave y’all with the link~

They’re up! It took forever to put together because I expanded the list from 10, coz I couldn’t make up my mind, to 20 (and bonuses!) LOL! The funny thing was that when I expanded the Top10, the positions changed! If that makes any sense. I had only been able to put together half the list, when some work-related business came up, so went back to it last evening and had to stay up until 6AM to be able to post today ASAP. My Top50 Songs post is still a work in progress, though~ I got enough songs (too many), so it’s just a matter of cutting down.

Without further ado~ happy listening!

I’m not one for girl fashion, but I just ran into this Zhao Wei Tumblr, and saw these pics of her wearing this cape. I love it. Is it Burberry? Since it’s the Burberry fashion runway xD I don’t know fashion show etiquette— can you go to a fashion show of a brand wearing another brand? xD

A couple of weeks ago someone shared this Modern Samurai Coats post from RocketNews24, which I loved. Like- LOVED. I would love to go out in the streets wearing that without being judged coz it’s never cold enough for that lol. I’ve always been super into baggy clothing (90’s child), and I’ve just started wearing baggy clothing once again. Harem pants are my favorite, at the moment~

Are you guys following Yoko Takahashi’s instagram account? If not, you’re missing out on the snaps she’s sharing of Mikako Ichikawa traveling to Osaka with Masako Motai and Satomi Kobayashi— aptly hashtagged “Noppo to Masako no Futari Tabi” (#のっぽとまさこのふたり旅) and “Noppo to Jukujo no Futari Tabi” (のっぽと熟女のふたり旅). In this case, Mikako Ichikawa is Noppo because she’s lanky. xD There’s only one Noppo in my life, but it makes so much sense.

I also learned how to say a version of MILF in Japanese, coz Jukujo (熟女) is the word used for “attractive mature lady,” which is refering to Kobayashi.

Masako-san is just Masako. xD

I’m almost hoping Hairi Katagiri shows up at one point in an actual photo.

I’ve also added a travel/tourism tag, finally. xD
