Back in Singapore and sorting through all my gifts for people (and myself!). Too many to go through and most are food anyway, so I’m just going to pick a few of the ones I really like! 😀
The Arinco roll cooler bag I now use to bring my lunch out. Haha
Farmers’ Market finds- high quality green tea leaves and sesame flakes for salad toppings. It was really cool because they were pressing the sesame with a really old school machine right at the farmer’s market itself!
Assorted snacks from Family mart because I really like these panda faces.
Tea strainers I bought from Tokyu Hands. Really sad because the packaging had a picture of METAL tea strainers and I bought it thinking it was metal but they turned out to be plastic!
I really like buying Cure- Natural Aqua Gel for my friends from Japan because they love it and it’s more than half priced in Japan. Even comes with a free gift! How nice 😀
My favourite buys from Loft. A new wooden lunchbox and a new smoothie/ soup cup! So pretty aren’t they 😀
I’m a huge fan of Frixon pens because I like that they are erasable so I can use them for my organizer and make plans without worrying about having to cancel and make a mess.
Loads of stickers for my organizer. I like Sumikko Gurashi if you can’t tell. Haha.
This is the next big thing in Japan- the Ohyama Method Body Make Pad Premium Pro- apparently it helps you to ‘burn fat’ and straighten your posture by pressing a specific accupoint in your toe. I came to know about it because my friend wanted me to get one for her. I’m not sure if it’s working for her but if you are interested, I can help you ask her. Haha. It’s not cheap though. It’s almost $30SGD I think. They even have books published on this but my Japanese is so poor I gave up after struggling through the first page. I only could make it past the fact that apparently it lengthens some sort of tendon and this increases blood circulation or flow or something. Whatever it is, use these as tools okay! Nothing will ever be better than a healthy mindset, a good diet and some exercise! 😀
My new goal in 2015 is not to use any products with little micro beads in them because they pollute the waters and harm the organisms living in them. But my skin needs some exfoliating sometimes so I’m going to do it the old fashioned way HAHA. I actually bought 2 because I heard dry brushing is good for the body too but so far, I’ve been too lazy to try. The metal curve rod though, is great after a day of hunching over the computer! 😀
Bento cookbooks for lunchbox inspiration! 😀 I’ll modify it to suit the ingredients we can find in Singapore, then share it with you guys! 😀
And lastly, the cleansing oil I purchased from ‘Three’ cosmetics in Aoyama!
Phew! I am FINALLY done with the Japan trip! YAY!
Hope everything has been helpful! Do email me if you need any other sort of information! 😀
