Cute & Sweet Japanese Snacks & Home Accessories

Tuesday, August 15th, 2017

Yamibuy is an online Asian market where you can buy all kinds of Japanese (and Korean, and Indian, and Chinese, and more) snacks and convenient home stuff!!  They also have makeup and beauty goods, but I am definitely saving that for a future post~

You can definitely use the site to buy the “usual” snacks you might look for when you’re hungry for Japanese snacks – you got your pockys, your mochis, your instant noodleses of all kinds (please read that list in Strong Bad’s voice).  I put this list together to show off a handful of more unknown sweets and try something new!

MARUHA Pururun Dessert Strawberry

This dessert mix makes a strawberry peach drink when you mix it with milk!
There are sweet little strawberry pieces throughout the mix~

NESTLADY Lotus Leaf Rose Tea 20g

Look at this SUPER PRETTY loose leaf tea!
It makes for such a nice display, I’d want to leave it out on the counter
as part of the kitchen decor rather than putting it away in a cabinet!

JOYOUNG Princess Series Electric Water Kettle Pink

Um can you believe that there is a PRINCESS SERIES of electric kettles??
Anyway, when it’s time to prepare your lovely rose tea,
it’s all the more fitting to use a lovely rose-colored kettle to do so~

BALI’SBEST Green Tea Latte 150g

OMG, these look like green tea versions of Werther’s!!
That sounds so awesome – I would be popping one of these in my mouth ALL day.
I like to have slow-melting sweets like this when I’m invested in work at the computer
or am spending a lot of time sewing.

HOUSE Purin Mix

This is the style of pudding that you always see in anime. o_o
Rather than going for a convenience store variety,
you can make some of your own with this mix!

Birthday Shenanigans

Wednesday, August 17th, 2011

August 17, 2011

My birthday was yesterday~ And I celebrated by having the most Hello Kittiest birthday ever.

Oh, it is so on. Let’s Kitty up this place.

First, I wanted to use up those icing decorations, so I made a small amount of cupcakes.

But the main course was definitely this cake.

Sprinkle overload!! I created this by cutting my own stencil of Hello Kitty’s face out of wax paper, then placing the stencil over the icing and proceeding to sprinkle all the heck over the place. A sprinklesplosion, if you will.

I lost some definition of the outline, especially in and around the bow, but that was sort of my own fault for making a too-intricate stencil. c: What matters is the super-sugary sprinkly taste. And that was definitely achieved.

And when I finished the cake – this part was totally a surprise to me – my mom appeared with presents in tow. ;____; I totally wasn’t expecting anything. My gifts? Fluffy pink Hello Kitty slippers, a Hello Kitty bag, some other small goodies, all complete with a Hello Kitty birthday card. It plays a song when you open it, which I totally recognized as a track from Hello Kitty Hello World.

I might have a problem??

My problem is that I don’t have enough Hello Kitty things.

Clearly I need another birthday to remedy this.
