Surprise, surprise! I'm in Manila now. I'm sure I didn't really elaborate in the previous blog post that I'll be coming home. But, I'm going to stay here now. I miss Japan so much at the same time, I'm excited for my "new" life here. First off, I'll be showing you to places that I find similar to Japan in a way. So even if I'm not in Japan any more, I won't be feeling homesick. I've asked my family and friends about places in Manila / Philippines that remind them about Japan and they gave me quite a list. If you have any suggestions, please comment down below.  

 Yesterday, my friends took me to this mall called "Century City" in Makati to try this concept food court, "Hole in the Wall".  My first impression was, it's definitely not a dingy place. I'm not sure why they named it that way, probably just to catch some attention. Actually, it's a perfect fit for people like me who's looking for places that reminds them of their favourite spots abroad. It will surely remind someone of Hong Kong or Korea, too. But since I lived in Japan, it reminded me of it.  

Matcha sesame! Yum, my favourite combination in one. In Japan, we usually have soft serves of matcha and sesame. What a clever idea to make a cookie version of it! I wasn't able to try it because I was really full and feeling bloated that time.

Today, I just want to share with you an "oshare" café discovery in Osaka. All thanks to my friend Allie. As you can see in the photo, it is called interior bookworm café. Although there are only about eight seats, everything is just eyesome and I would really love t hangout with a friend here. 

They allow take aways, too. But if you have time, I suggest you to sit for a while and enjoy the calmness. 

Let's go in!

If there's a place in Japan that everybody couldn't get enough of, it's Kyoto for sure. I've been to Kiyomizudera for over five times now but if you ask me to go back with you, I would definitely day I would love to. There's something about the crowd, the combination of a light blue coloured sky and the orange hues of the temples, and the history that reminds us there were lives way before us.

While hanging out with my friends in Osaka, I saw this Sailor Moon pop-up store at Lucua 1100. And of course, I have to check it out. I'm actually not aware that there's Sailor Moon event in Osaka as I've thought it was only showcased in Isetan Shinjuku. But it was meant to be. Bunny and me. 

Gosh, my love for all these cute things!

Since many of you are asking about places to go in Osaka, I decided to make a post about it to show how much I love this city! I totally recommend Osaka for shopping and dining because everything is much more delicious and cheaper! Tokyo makes everything so photogenic so it's really tempting to shop whilst I was there but I'm so disappointed that the price difference was pretty steep. SOME of the Sailor Moon items that I bought from Kiddy Land Harajuku were sold at least ¥200 higher than the good old Kiddy Land in Hirakatashi, Osaka. 

Tina Tamashiro's face is everywhere, isn't she the cutest! Find out more about bookstores in Osaka in this post!

Fuchiko, the office lady, invades Osaka as well! Everything in this post could be find at JR Osaka Station only.
