Beauty Inside Out with Newly Launched Hada Labo Hydrating Water Gel

Sponsored Article


Time to say goodbye to Kanazawa for Tokyo then say 'Sayonara' to Japan. I woke up early to take Shinkansen to Tokyo. Since it was a long journey ahead. Not much appetite  though so I made this instant miso clams soup.

Look at that 'kawaii' clams. You pour the miso sauce and hot boiling water on it and it open like that. DAEBAK! Taste? Refreshing hot miso soup . Not bad! If in cold weather will be nice. I don't eat the clams though....afraid stomachache. Who knows.... so need to take extra precaution. Then bought some sandwiches and cinnamon rolls for my train ride picnic.

Reach the busy Tokyo station. I have been at natural and country side for few days. I am a bit culture shock when reach to big city of Tokyo. I don't like it at all. Everywhere is big tall concrete building. Everyone walk like 'no soul' robot! Haihhhh!!!!

Most of Japanese food is cold. It look beautiful but the cold but is not to my liking at all. Taste ok if its hot! That is why , I kind of less tempting to even buy them just because it look nicely displayed.

Too bad when reached Tokyo , it was a rainy day all the way. So it made me uncomfortable to walk around to explore. I manage to walk along akibahara, ginza and tuskuji area. Again...this place has less greens around and I don't really fancy tall building and busy road.

I wanted to eat around Tsukuji market but the rain was too heavy. So I settled down at one of the restaurant nearby for Spagetti. That Squid ink spagetti look ugly and and yucks looking heh??? But its yummy though! Especially when I sprinkle whole lots of parmesan cheese on top.

By the time rain stop, it was so late afternoon and most vendors at Tsukuji area is calling off their day. isk isk isk...I saw many people eat ramen and beef noodles here. The culture here is eating while standing. huhuhuh...look like not easy to digest to me. I saw few 'ang mo' try to adapt the culture order the ramen and eat using chopstick while standing. Pity! One lady 'ang mo' use both hand for chopstick and her face doesn't seems like she enjoy it. True enough! I saw her left the bowl with full of ramen in it. She gave up! Maybe the taste not to her liking? Perhaps the chopstick?

I met fellow Malaysian lady who are from Penang. She was manning the side dishes stall. She called out to me first. 

Malaysian lady : Malaysian? Indonesian?
Me : Malaysian
Malaysian Lady : Hi! aku orang Malaysia la...
Me : Is it? Apa buat sini? Kahwin Jepun ke?
Malaysian lady : Tak la...I jalan sini then terus suka duduk sini and keje sini la
Me : How long?
Malaysian lady : 10 year edi.
Me : Whoa!!!!don't miss Malaysia meh? when going back?

Then our conversation was interrupted by the Japanese man who was standing near us.

Malaysian lady : He asked what is our Malaysian population like?
Me : Aloooo... why you ask me this kind of question? I am bad at this and pretty much ignorant too. Haihhhh! mmmmm...maybe 15 million?
Malaysian lady soh seh soh seh in Japanese to that man. That man look surprise and utter some words like so little???

kekekekeke... I went back and check...IMA gave wrong info. kakakakaka next time google la..don't asked passers by like me. Damn!!!! Lucky...don't pass by that road again.

I bought some black beans tea 450 JPY to help fellow Malaysian there. Gambateh!

Bought some fish cakes , tamago, dango and wasabe ice creams for my tea time and dinner. Not sure I have strength to walk further.  

I feel like I want to get out of this concrete jungle. I feel suffocated here. Lucky bought some food for dinner because Tokyo was rain cat and dog until night. I need to get out ..I need to get out... I search for some info on how to the place via train to get away from Tokyo. Tomorrow I have one full day before head off to Malaysia the next day. So I end up did impromptu plan to make use of my whole day to travel by train to Hakone for more natural view. Check out my final Hakone trail journey on next post. 

I will do my trip summary on Friday post. It won't be too details and with cost. Too me its much better for you to do own research and each budget is depends on individual capability. I did the same too!

Cosmoderm Luminous A Retinol Review

In general, most people are advised to start using retinol in their mid-20s. Why do we need retinol for our skin? Well, this is because collagen and elastin production starts to slow down. Adding retinol into our skincare routine at age of 25 to 30 is the perfect time to slow down the ageing process. So, what is retinol that people are hyping about? In short, retinol is a topical product containing a vitamin A derivative. Technically speaking a type of retinoid which works to increase collagen production. It helps to treat acne, and blackheads and is also ideal to improve skincare texture such as minimising fine lines, and wrinkles and brightening dull skin. Personally, I am a beginner in adding Retinol into my skincare routine. At the age of 47 years old. I guess, am afraid to start one because I read many side effects if use it wrong.  What is the side effect if you use retinol wrong?  Retinols can increase your skin's sensitivity to sunlight. So, it is advisable to apply this at
