Snack Update – I haven’t eaten it all yet. And more has come.

BOX OF FUNNNNN CANDYSAN

So a while ago I posted the pics of the Dagashi set 2 and the Fukubukuro box from Freedom Japanese Market… I still haven’t finished it all. And the Discovery Box from Candysan arrived last week…. and then the April Subscription box from FJM arrived yesterday… so much like a backlog of TV or anime… I have a backlog of candy and snacks…. not that I’m complaining. I’d love nothing more than to stuff my face with it all very quickly. But I’m trying to be good. I refused to start the Dagashi set 2 until I’ve finished set 1. And I still had 2 things left when I did start it I think… and I still have stuff from my FJM sample box too… maybe 1 or 2 things… (more…)

The inside of the Fukubukuro box. Why aren't English snacks as vibrantly packaged??

So due to Dagashi Kashi and my utter lack of self control, I have a pile of Japanese snacks and candy sitting to my left on the sofa. I still haven’t finished the Dagashi Kashi set 1 that I got from Jbox, ONLY because, once I finish it, it’s gone, and that’s why I try not to buy fancy snacks and stuff, cos once I eat it, it’s gone 😦 That being said, I have money and very little self control sometimes… Sometimes being the operative word here. And I ordered these boxes from Freedom Japanese Market literally weeks ago. One was shipped on the 2nd of March, and one was shipped the 9th. So it was about 3 weeks for each. I don’t mind waiting. Means I forget things are coming and it’s a nice surprise. BUT when all these things arrive at one at work, I get looks and comments lol. I try to explain they’re preorders, and weren’t all ordered all at once 😄 Below the cut are many pictures…. many delicious pictures…

Dagashi Kashi – Genius product placement.

Saya-chan is best girl.

So I fell victim to this show and it’s blatant snack advertising and ordered one of the JList/JBox sample sets, Best $12 I ever spent. As well as the extra Konpeito I ordered. But $12 for essentially a sort-of surprise bag of weird and wondrful Japanese snacks. Some of which I know, some of which I don’t, all of which I wanted to try however. Thanks to Dagashi Kashi. (Stupid show.)

Impromtu London Loot

March 20, 2009

Today(Thursday), I went to London! Twas the results of blackmailing my parents after they guilted me into not going to the preview showing of Watchmen that I WON a ticket to…. At the Imax in London. The UK/England’s biggest screen. Was epic to say the least. Loved it. Was just as good, if not better than the first time I saw it on a normal size cinema screen. Seemed to finish in no time at all… Which I always assume is a good thing lol. If you can finish a movie wthout checking your watch/keitai clock.

When I was last visited this in Jan 2008, it was still under construction. Now, its full of AWESOME gaming machines!!!! Its so cool... I wish I had time to stay and play lol.

BRING ON THE TRUMPETS!!

August 17, 2008

I love this advert, so-so much!!! It’s freakin’ awesome!!! (BRING ON THE TRUMPETS!!!)

It’s a great ad campaign,(this isn’t the only advert) I’m actually tempted to try the sweets, seeing if they’re nicer than sweets full of food colouring and addictives. (I love e-numbers!!! lolz)
