My Japanese Valentine’s

p1000141.jpg

Bernice and I decided to add a spin to our Valentine’s and celebrate it like how a Japanese girl would. Instead of waiting for guys to give us chocolates and flowers during this day of hearts, we were the ones giving out some sweet tokens to the guys.

Osaka Day 4 – Getting to Know Umeda and Nanba

1/19

We were scheduled to go to Umeda for some shopping and sale hunting! We went to HEP Five, a building with a big red ferris wheel on top. We tried to find UNIQLO, the Japanese version of Giordano, or so they say. UNIQLO was a bit elusive at first, but after seeking help from some of the locals and a cute-looking guy, we were able to arrive at our destination. Unfortunately, we were a bit early at 10AM. Most of the shops were scheduled to open at 11AM.

I stopped to observe the passerbys. Contrary to common belief, a lot of families go out during the weekends. I saw a lot of ultra kawaii (cute) kids with their parents merrily walking and spending some quality time together. The Japanese are not as workaholic as they appear to be. The kids looked adorable donning their winter wear, with their teeny tiny bubble jackets and all. All of them seem to have a healthy blush on them, which only magnified their cuteness and moe factor >__< I would have liked to take a picture with them, but I’m afraid that the parents might call the police on me shouting “PEDO!!! PEDO!!!”

Osaka Day 2 – Work, Boys, and More Boys!

1/17

I woke up at around 6:00AM to get ready for the first day of work. It was hectic. I almost drowned in the sea of black and brown jackets worn by the busy, busy office people raring to get to work. The Japanese have a certain strut, a very brisk and fast strut. I walk very leisurely, so I would be considered as a jama or nuisance, a hindrance to the otherwise steady influx of the marching Japanese workforce.
