Jen and I went to Japantown yesterday! I actually declined the invite at first because there were some things that I needed to do around the house. But then I had an emo moment and thought, “Damn, I should’ve just gone!” And then Jen called me again and asked if I was sure that I didn’t want to go, so I said, “Let me fix my hair.”And to let my parents know. Even though I’m well in my 20s, mid-20s even, I still have to let my parents know where I go. That’s the price you pay when you live rent-free with your family.
I damn near forgot just how cold it is in San Francisco during the summer. I remember when I lived in Daly City, I thought the constant fogginess was amazing as I hate hot weather. But towards the end of my time in the bay area, I got a bad case of seasonal depression from lack of sunshine.
Once we got there, we were greeted with misty air which was a nice change from the central valley heat. I don’t think I can deal with that kind of weather everyday ever again though.
Anyway, I grabbed a couple of silk headbands with bows at Daiso for just $1.50 each. I haven’t taken pictures of them yet, but you’ll most likely see me wearing one of them in a post in the near future. I like to think of Daiso as a Japanese Target: they have EVERYTHING — fashion accessories, stationary, housewares, cosmetics, craft goods, snacks, etc.
I also found a cupcake place inside the Kintetsu mall called Cako Bakery. The cupcakes were really pricey ($3.50 each!), but I saw that they had a Strawberry Cheesecake one and I couldn’t resist.
I even found some Doctor Who toys inside a toy store I always frequent whenever I go to J-Town (the name of it escapes me though)! The first thing I saw was this 12 inch Clockwork Man figure, from the episode “The Girl in the Fireplace” which is one of my favorite episodes. They toys were freakishly pricey though — the Sonic Screwdriver I got on Amazon for $20 was being sold for $30, and the 11th Doctor’s screwdriver was being sold for $40. I found that Amazon not too long ago for $14.99. Even though I got really excited for spotting Who merchandise, I figured I’d wait till I go to Comic Con next week to go ape shit.
All in all, it was a good day. I’ll leave you with my “seasonal depression” face. Haha!
