Matsuri at Yushima Shrine

I've been living in Japan for a while now and I started to miss blogging.
I actually have to stay up late because my hostsister hates being alone and she's in an exam session... so I have some time to waste on my computer. I'd also like to change the style of my blog for this, we'll see...
I also want to post about my trip to Seoul as soon as I'll get my pictures

So, let's go back to yesterday at the Yushima Shrine, which is dedicated to Tenjin, the God of... learning~.

I went there with my hostfamily, their friends and also met Sayuri (a friend from Malta) at the station

Sayuri was a good teacher and explained me all the praying ritual

I also got this omamori from my hostmosther to bring me luck into my travels. She bought a study omamori for her oldest daughter too.
She told me if my plane crash, she will never buy her omamori there again... *ahem*

Sayuri also suggested to get our omikuji (kind of fortunes... ?) while everyone was buying food and drinks.
I already tried once with my other friend from Malta, Yuki, when I was in Nagoya

I wasn't especially curious but the content surpised me as it was veerryy similar to the past one, except my level of luck was higher.

Findind some treasure in other people's wish

An ancient Japanese mesure

That chibiko is actually so proud of her size she uses it for most of her urls (but she was wearing platforms that day)

And here is my hostmother on the left. I'm next to her friend Miya who also welcomes foreign students into her house~.
I actually spend most of my time with them drinking.

Food hunting time キタ━━━(゚∀゚)━━━!!!

Very normally enjoying some Korean deliciouness in a Japanese festival, very hot 호떡 (hotteok) ♥

Take a minute or two to look at this fish

I bought something from a stall, and the old woman also handed me that kind of meat pancake she was cooking and said it was offered, then asked Sayuri to translate for me haha. Thank you おばあさん, but even if I didn't speak Japanese, that wasn't a difficult one.
Anyway, she was very cute and her food was delicious ♥

With just Sayuri and my oldest hostsister, Kotone we left for Ikebukuro to find a birthday present for "our" youngest sister.

We also took some purikura along the way.
Those "Focus, guys" and "Calm down" are famous sentences from our English teacher in Malta (even though Sayuri and I never shared the same class or even level)

I also met EXO on a random shop of span style="color: #e165a0;">Kotone we left for Sunshine City ( ̄▽ ̄)=3

The day ended with an English lesson in Mister Donut with Koto's friend, Rena before saying bye to Sayuri and going home.

So many things happened, it feels like 2 different days.
But I could buy Akane's birthday present

YesStyle haul

Hello everyone

I've finally received my latest order. I placed it by the end of July but it couldn't be sent because 2 items were not in stock. They actually ended up cancelling these two and then they sent the parcel.

Being my usual stupid-self before proceding to the surgery (aka opening).

I first gave to my mom the playsuit I bought for her and she tried it on with her socks... how sexy (  ̄っ ̄)

Cross bracelet. I fell in love with this one.

Strap sandals (・∀・). These will probably be useful for my upcoming new life in Malta!

This is also the reason why I bought... 2 dresses! I hate hate hate my legs (oh, and about everything else about myself), but I'm probably going to die from the heat if I stay in my jeans there... 。(´д`lll)

But this is soooo shoort! (iДi)
I think I'll train my heat resistance instead... (_ _。)

I like this one a lot! Though it still is very short, it can looks casual but also dressed (but it's also very figure-hugging so I'm not sure I can eat without tearing it (/ω\))

I also got this bag and 28 collagen face masks but couldn't take a proprer pictures of them.

Are you already back to school? Or enjoying your last free days? (‐^▽^‐)

Gentse Feesten

Every year around the Belgian National Day, and since 1843, the Gentse Feesten (Genth Festival) take place in the beautiful city of Ghent.
The city is sprinkled with random small street acts, street artists, World food stalls, etc.

Ghent being about 2 hours away from where I live, I went with my two (separated) parents to spend the day there, but sadly leaving before the parties of the night (´・ω・`)

We shared food on the terrace on the Vooruit's museum.

It was so hot that day, so we tried that new frozen yoghurt place. It was under the average temperature all year and suddenly the sun was shining worth one year (´□`。).
My dad and I like to order different things and share when we eat something, but my mom never get used to it (anyway we don't like the same things). So we ordered one for us and she chose hers. She allowed us to taste it, though.
(Also, he's more used to wait until I took enough pictures before eating. He even helps with the arrangement.)

Acting like it's his legs. I couldn't tell him he's far from a model (><;)

« Taste here the World » (or something. If I have Dutch reader, they probably already know how much I suck.)
