If you’re an anime blogger, you probably know Moya from her blog, The Moyatorium. If you’ve read a certain older blog post of mine, you would know that I met her for the first time in February of this year. I bumped into her on the bus a while back, so this is technically our third time meeting!
We went to Hachibei, a Japanese restaurant my Psych professor told me about. I ordered katsudon (pork cutlet) and Moya ordered the tofu hamburger.
I turned 21 years old on October 1! On the day before my birthday, I got my ears pierced with a friend. I got upper lobe done and it was painless. We visited a Chinese garden then went to my place for a sleepover.
All of my close friends attended my birthday dinner. We went to a Japanese restaurant.
Two friends surprised me with a cake. The staff sang ‘Happy Birthday’ really loud and I was shocked! I thought it was for a different table.
You can see my balloon and a scarf my friends gave me. I got a lot of cool gifts! I honestly think that I have the best friends in the whole world because they accept me for who I am. I am a little different with the whole anime hobby thing. I act like a kid, and I ask a lot of dumb questions. They still love me for being me.
The night market opens every year during the summer and opens from 7 PM – 12 AM. I went to the Richmond Night Market in BC, Canada.
It’s a bunch of tents on a large open space. The food stalls sell Asian foods and the tents sell cheap stuff from Asia. It’s really popular and the entrance fee for this one was around $3.75 which is expensive in my opinion. It’s still worth going.
Pocky was $1 each which is cheaper than the supermarket.
– I’ve been craving takoyaki ever since Hatchan made takoyaki for the Straw hats in One Piece
LOL I need to get a life!! Part of me loves me for being me, but the other part of me is like… why am I like this
I mean, anime hasn’t been interfering with my life. My family and friends irl treat me the same. If anything, anime has been treating me quite well LOL. I’ve met tons of online friends who love anime like me. People support my cosplaying hobby and the blog has really taken off thanks to my love for anime. I’m really happy with myself right now. I have no desire to change atm. ^^
I bought One Piece Zoro blocks/lego for $8. I’ve only seen Chopper in malls and the mall was selling for $15. Not only was this cheaper, there were more choices and I like Zoro more. ❤
Maiko is a Japanese exchange student I met some months ago at a social event. She is returning home soon, so I had to see her again one last time.
We went to Suika in Vancouver, BC for lunch. I got miso ramen and it tasted great.
Even though I’ve only hung out with Maiko during that social event, she got me a gift. She is such a kind-hearted person, and so much fun to hang out with. I wish I got to see her more during the school year but life was so hectic. It’s a letter set from Japan with paper, envelopes, and stickers.
Details. This is really good quality.
I picked up a couple of cosplay things (brown short wig, and green sneakers – for Kido). We went shopping after our lunch and I also bought the video game, Star Ocean. Maiko bought way more things than me.
I’m really going to miss Maiko, but I’m glad I got to see her before she goes back to Japan.
