London has a wealth of japanese restaurants and sushi places - always irresistable and has a couple of shops in central London too. I am sure there are more in London itself, but as i am only ever in Central, its nice i have a choice of 2 places to go to - especially as one has now moved to be 2 doors down from the other!

Mitzukoshi Department store is there for the Japanese tourists in their coaches who turn up for the tax free (for japanese only i guess) high end goods - Maison de Chocolat, Cath Kidson and a ton of other brands. It feels so upmarket going in there but the staff are quite polite and friendly even though I don't stop on their floor. I always head to the back and down the stairs to the bookshop which sells magazines, anime, films,cds and cute goods. I usually get my 'Junon' and 'what's on' here as they also have a stamp scheme for a discount and i spend enough to actually get one.

I usually just go in once a month as its expensive to get magazines etc and i am always tempted by various goods and cute note pads and stickers like i am 5 years old! Today I picked up a Junon and a what's in and  *faints* the pics of Nissy are just to die for!!!! i can't wait to go home and gaze at them some more! I would do that now, but i am eating a croque monsieur at Starbucks in notting hill and i don't want grease to get on everything . Cheese always drips when i eat :/

i also picked up some cute writing paper and stickers!

I then moved onto the Japan Centre (it has a website, go look!) and i usually get a magazine here if they are sold out at the Mitzukoshi book store. We really need a Book Off in London as japanese culture is so popular. They would do really good business i am sure!! anyway - i picked up some Ramyeon, macha powder (for making green tea icecream! woot), some tohato pea crips which i ADORE - i don't eat crisps anymore, but there aren't really crisps.. more of a pea snack... right? They do make me a bit gassy, so I won't eat them before church :P. I also got some panda snacks and a pear juice drink which is another addiction of mine.

*sips chai latte slowly*

so tonight i gotta do a whole buch of things for ... something. Right? Not all the replies are in just yet... so I'll give it until the end of the day before i set things up properly but if no one else replies.... thats that. I think in the end we all have to be decisive... or else all momentum is lost. And i'd hate for that to happen!

so, thats it for my sunday rambling... time to watch another drama episode... r maybe get some work done... aish i can never decide!!!

It's awesome to hear London has so many Japanese-related places! I don't think I was very deep into the Japanese fandom at the the time that I went to London (I was BIG on Stormbreaker and Alex Pettyfer then ;P), but I bet the places there are pretty cool! I'm glad there's somewhere like that for you to go to! And a JUNON fan!!!! &hearts

Junon is one of those magazines that you can really look forward to every month. Great quality, great articles......I first started buying them for Hongo Kanata, and that's how I sort of found Nissy and Shin. Unfortunately Kanata's no longer in them as a regular, poor guy! :(

About the something or other that might be something..... ^^;;;; I need to reply to that, but I also wanted to mention something too!

I hope you have a good time watching dramas! Which will you watch?? Still wholeheartedly recommending Tumbling to ya! :D We need a Hino on the Tumbling roleplay, so if you liked his character in that......*winks*

Oh nice! The last two eps don't have subs out yet???? Really??? But I think Alex has all of them with subs, as we were watching with family!! Lemme double check about that, because you might be able to get it earlier. How is Ghost World??? I've never heard of it, but it sounds fantastic!

Stormbreaker... ^^ I loved it! And when it came to a theater in America, I dragged my Mom along to go see it, and she loved it too. I thought it was a well-done movie that didn't get enough credit and attention, but I am very happy to see Alex moving quickly through the celeb ranks. He's a handsome guy for sure, but more importantly, he's a GREAT actor and is finally getting the limelight he deserves! i think it's awesome you did VFX for the film!!! What did you make of it?

Yeah, I still haven't said my something about something. XD

Ahhhh! Okay, Ghost Friends! (Hey, I'm stupid too--I should have guessed that! >.<)

And I saw your name!!!!! Alex and I went and watched Stormbreaker (online, unfortunately, since we didn't get to bring our copy :( ), but you're Kay, right? Under the VFX Team? CONGRATS! That's always something to be proud of, knowing your efforts for such an awesome project were valued and shared! ^^

Agreeing about Disturbia.... T_T I'm glad you liked both of those!
