This denim jacket is super good! I've depended on it for warmth and unexpectedly it didn't fail. Whether it's he cold rain and breeze in Tokyo or the negative zero temp in the New Zealand snow, it definitely kept me cozy and... alive.  I've debated on getting a down puffer jacket ala Balenciga / Moncler but decided it was too touristy. lol. So yeah, it's not that bad to pretend being a RIRI for a day too. 


TRAVEL / Senso-ji Temple

The rain ratified the coldness of that morning. The cold was insane. It seeps through the very fiber of your outerwear and torture you with numbness. No amount of scarves or warmers can make you feel cozily warm and fine. So we found solace to the oldest temple in Japan - The Senso-ji Temple. There was no fireplace or heater but the thick columns and voices of the people produced an unexpected warmth. We stayed there 'til we can stomach the cold rain outside. Before that we say our prayers and thanks to God and whoever responsible of this wonderful journey. We also prayed that the cold wouldn't kill us.

Tomorrow me and my partner will be flying to New Zealand! I just applied for a visit visa while we were in Tokyo not expecting that it will be granted. I just thought of applying because we wanted to do a long weekend holiday in NZD and it was granted! Now we're going there to see the lovely city of Christchurch and celebrate Larrend's birthday! And yes! It's my favorite time of the year. It's 8 degrees and I couldn't stress the importance of having over the knee boots. It will be just a short 5 day trip but I am so enthralled at the thought of seeing ice-capped mountains, fascinating terrains and breathtaking sceneries.  This is what I'll wear tomorrow to the airport before I cover everything up with a boring down parka jacket.

Loving Hood by Air at the moment! I'm starting to appreciate complexity and chaos. I am quite amazed by their genius thought process on a grandiose scale and how it deflects the conventional way of everything: fashion, attitude , style, beauty , norms. 


TRAVEL / Techno Town

Hello, Akihabara! So many colors, so many techno-making sounds , so many video games , weird cute gagdets. We enjoyed our 40-minute visit yet the rain was so bad and we were soaking wet. It felt weird entering electronic shops and being wet like it's not a good combination so we just took photos, watched people, listened to the cacophony of this fascinating area.
