ROPONGGI

The view of the city from Tokyo Tower.


You can peek thru these mini holes to see what's down there from the top of the tower.




If you have all these things, what else could you wish for?




If I could have one wish, this would be it.






Try quattro formaggio at Rigoletto's!

Roponggi possesses a certain charm that attracted Justin and I to live here in the near future. 

Top things to do in Roponggi:

Drop by at Mori Art Museum at Roponggi Hills. They're currently hosting Andy Warhol exhibit and café which I haven't visited. The last time I went there was when they had Peanuts (Snoopy) exhibit! It was so, so amazing! We weren't allowed to take photos for most part of the exhibit though. Enjoy! 

Enjoy National Art Center. It's proclaimed as Japan's largest museum. 

To complete the triumvirate, go to Suntory Museum of Art at Tokyo Midtown as well.

Visit Tokyo Tower. By this time everyone must be "I'll go to Tokyo Skytree instead." But, no. I'll give you three reasons why you should still visit Tokyo Tower. It's cheaper! For only ¥800, you can climb up. Less lines. You don't have to wait all day just to reach the peak of this tower. Last, Tokyo Tower has this "moon river" romantic vibe maybe because it' less crowded and more private compared to Skytree.

Roponggi is famous for it's night life, so don't miss out and try karaoke! 

Eat! It could be really expensive to dine in Japan especially in this area. Try Pink Cow (they serve Mexican goodness), Baker Bounce (my number one go-to place), Ritz-Carlton café (for afternoon tea), Cinnabon (yes they have it here) and Rigoletto (for drinking with friends).

Adore their architecture! One of the best I've seen!

Attend events. The previous Maybelline JP kick-off party for MBFWT was hosted in Midtown! It was so much fun!

WHAT MAKES ME BLUE


There are too many things that are making me feel really sad lately but I'm trying to take it positively by smiling, being busy and hanging out with my friends. First, Justin went to Japan to visit me for 11 days (I'll update you about that soon and the many places that we visited) but he already left. I felt like I lost a part of me. It's been 13 days and I'm still coping. Trying my very best to smile and have fun! Second, I went home to my family's house for a bit but now I'm living alone again.. Double separation anxiety. I'm really close to my sisters so I'm kind of lost without them. And lastly (since I don't want to stress you out about me being lonely), I have to work on May 1st (my birthday) for the first time in my life. Usually, I have time off but this year it's different. I'll probably spend it alone as well and it's making me feel anxious. People in Japan usually sleep it off. Birthdays are just birthdays anyway, I know.

Thanks to my friends for giving me and lending me items for this shoot. I only brought my backpack for our trip to Okinawa thus the lack of clothing and stuff! So you probably read my short story about feeling blue (above) and now I'm going to tell you how to get over it. Probably first, I sleep. It's my way to relax and get over something. Second is taking a hot bath with milk scrub while listening to music or chatting with Coleen and China via LINE. Third would be face time with Justin. And finally, going out. Actually, I just got back from my trip to Osaka, Kobe, Befu, Kyoto and Okinawa. It must be the most tiring vacation I've ever had but it made me feel really good and ready for the world.
