Do you remember My Kawaii project? It was nice that one of TKE readers kindly submitted me an entry, while I almost forgot that I shared many My Kawaii posts from TKE readers last year. ^ ^; If you are new to TKE, it’s a good chance to share your kawaii with other readers. 😀
I’m Bethany from Singapore, and I fell in love with all things cute and Japanese many years ago. The journey of my love for Japanese and kawaii things has been long and interesting, and has come to a great stage now (which I will reveal later)!
One of my hobbies is to take purikura~ This is my favourite kawaii pastime with my best friend. Decorating purikura can be so stressful sometimes when we are rushing against the time limit… ！(´Д｀；)
Another kawaii I love to indulge in is nails! There is never a time when my nails are bare, and I frequently go to the salon to get gel nails done in cute designs. (*゜▽゜ノノ゛☆
My favourite jewelry/accessory brand is Q-pot. I got the necklace above for my 16th birthday in Tokyo, and my parents bought the cheese earrings for me when they went to Osaka. The koala macaron strap is not from Q-pot, but fits with the food theme, so I put it in the photo too~ (*^▽^*) I got it from a gachapon machine!
Every year when docomo releases the Q-pot phone, I fall in love with it, but it’s only available and usable in Japan, not to mention limited edition and expensive… ;_;
My bag is the Samantha Thavasa Aimi series Winter edition, and my wallet is from Samantha Thavasa too! This bag was a present from my parents for doing well in my graduation exams (‘A’-levels and SATs), so it means a lot to me. It’s also very cute and gets many stares on the streets, haha~
My favourite snack is Jagabee! Actually, I prefer the Jaga Pokkuru version, but it’s only available in Japan, so I can’t find it here. Nonetheless, Jagabee is close enough and I’m addicted to it~
Finally, one of my favourite kawaii characters is Kapibara-san! My friend won the Onsen Kapibara-san from a UFO catcher machine for me~ The biggest Kapibara-san actually belongs to my mom- my dad bought it for her from KIDDYLAND Harajuku.
I graduated from High School at the end of last year, and applied for University this year. Unlike my peers and normal people in general, I only applied to one university and didn’t even have a backup second choice. Fortunately, I made it against all odds, and I will be moving to Tokyo this August to attend the prestigious International Christian University for 4 years!!! My love for Japan and kawaii things will now increase exponentially as I immerse myself in all things Japanese for 4 years, and I could not be any more excited~! I’m counting down the days and hours, and have already begun packing, haha!! I love Tokyo so much, and haven’t been there in over 2 years due to hectic school activities and studies, so my move to Tokyo will be the first time I’ll be there since 2009. I miss Tokyo so much- from the culture to the food to the shopping to the kawaii and fashionable everything! I’ve always blogged about fashion and lifestyle, but it really can’t compare to that in Japan, because Japan truly is the capital of kawaii. (≧▽≦) As such, in my 2.5 years not being able to go to Tokyo, I’ve been
following Japan-based blogs such as TKE to find out everything recent going on and now, I will finally be able to be on the other side blogging about Tokyo trends and happenings~!
