Robot AutoMee S Cleans Your Smartphone!

2013-03-16T23:50:09.642-07:00

This is authentic Hermes 35cm Black Ardennes with gold hardware, auctioned out by a reliable YJ seller. 






Ardennes leather has been discontinued by Hermes, but its beautiful appearance and extremely sturdy, indestructible quality of the leather continues to attract many Birkin fans. 'F' stamped for the year 2002, yet this is in a near mint condition. It looks almost brand new and flawless everywhere, except for tiny scratches on the metal studs on the bottom. Belt and metal buckles at its entrance are covered with protective film. Comes with clochette, cadena, keys, rain cover, protection box and bags.

It comes in a popular 35cm size that you can use for everyday life and love for a long time. 


Although in a good condition, this is an used item, read descriptions carefully and ask ANY questions if you are in doubt. 


This seller also has a great selection of high-end brand items, especially CHANEL.



Japanese Curry Rice Championship 2013 Kick-off!

2013-02-26T06:00:03.085-08:00

Hungry for hearty, delicious Japanese-style curry rice? 
Curry rice is one of the most popular food among Japanese people. 
Let's see how hungry you really are with Go Go Curry's eating contest



From February 25th, popular Kanazawa-style curry chain restaurants Go Go Curry kicked off its annual curry eating contest. The rule is simple, whoever finishes two plates of curry rice and yelled "Go Go Curry!" at the end in shortest time  will be the winner. Four selected winners from Japan will be invited to New York, where Go Go Curry US branches are located, to compete in its world championship. 

For people who just want to enjoy the taste of curry without rushing, check out Yahoo Japan Auction to try some authentic Japanese-style curry and related products. 



Here's a video of a couple of contestants who finished their challenges in 2:43 and 4:29.  
Japanese can eat when they are committed!

Need a Nap? Try the Sleeping Cafe in Japan!

2013-02-25T06:00:01.014-08:00

For the low price of 150 yen per ten minutes, you can get a nap at the sleeping cafe and free food, drinks, wifi charge and a beauty refresher- that is a lot to do in ten minutes!
The cafe is WOMAN only! We need our beauty rest!

Qusca Cafe opened in Tokyo just this January and they recommend making reservations for the nap room as it gets booked up!

The nap area looks heavenly- especially to me, a Mom of a toddler... I will take 30 minutes please!

If you do not want a nap, try the cuddle cafe in Japan- pay to get some hugs!
