鳥のいるカフェ Birds Cafe, Tokyo

Travelogue, Cafe Hunt

みんな!こんにちは!

Hi everyone! It sure has been a long time since I last blogged about stuff I do in Japan even though I spend most of my time in Japan, after Singapore. 

So early this month, my friend Ignatius went to Tokyo for vacation and we decided to meet up when I was in Tokyo, too! And we decided to go to the Birds Cafe near the hotel he was staying at in 木場 (Kiba).


It's actually very near the station. 

I'm sorry I forgot what's the nearest exit. ごめん~ (T^T)


Upon entering, you will see this shelf of accessories that are all birds related that you may purchase!


Not forgetting this huge and fierce looking owl near the entrance!


Artificial tree in the cosy cafe to give it a more "forest" feel.


More souvenirs and even toys for birds that you may purchase 


Unlike the Owl cafe that many people have been talking about recently, there are not only Owls in this cafe.

There's Parrots, too!


And yea! I got their Cheesecake Set which includes a cheesecake and drink for ¥1100 which is around $13SGD.


かわいいでしょう?

Note, this cafe does not serve proper food. 

If you're looking for a cafe that serves lunch/dinner, well, this is not the place alright.


The owls in the petting room that you can pay an extra of ¥500 per person to enter for 5 mins.

You may not only pet the birds but also take a photo with one bird of your choice!

No, they do not have polaroids. You'll have to take the photo with your camera or phone.










I wanted to take photo with the biggest owl in the petting area but I chickened out and decided to go with this baby owl instead.

Looking back, I don't have any photo of the only eagle in the petting area! Sharks~!

Oki! That's all for this short post on my short visit to the Birds Cafe in Kiba!

See you soon in my next post!

XOXO, Tsuriki.

De-stress, relax with MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask

Advertorial

Hi everyone!

Today I wanna share with you this product that has just been released in the Singapore market!

Personally, I have been wanted to try this product for a very long time ever since I first saw it in Japan last year!

And what is this product?


TADA! It is the new MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask from Kao!

Nowadays everyone is facing the computer everyday be it for work or when you're back at home surfing the net after a long, stressful, hectic day at work.

Not only that! We are always constantly on our phones and ipads etc which is actually very tiring for our eyes, too!


Now you can pamper yourself after a long hectic day with this self-warming MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask! It is a new eye comfort innovation from Japan! In just a short 10 mins, you will feel all relaxed and de-stressed after resting with this comfortable 40℃ steam eye mask, spreading gently envelop your eyes!

Check out the video below to see the amazing heating effect of the MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask!




Not only that! The steam that is begin produced will help to moisten the skin are around your eyes while relieves your tired eyes!


Each box comes with 5 pieces of eye masks that are individually packed for single use and for disposal conveniently!

As such, consumers can use it before bedtime, breaks in between household chores and work, to aid sleeping while travelling on airplanes and after working long hours on computers.

For people like me who flies often, why not try putting on one when you are napping on the plane! 
It really feels very comfortable as the cabin may be a little too cold and dry at times.

Trust me, it's not weird at all. I've seen countless Japanese passengers putting on these steam eye masks on board when they nap.

The MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask has eye loops that are really soft! It helps to keep the mask in place in any position without any discomfort!

Plus! MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask comes in not only the original unscented ones, they come in 3 other lovely floral scent, too!


Chamomile - Ginger aroma calms and releases stress


I really like to use this Chamomile scented ones in between work like during your rest time!

After using the Chamomile steam eye masks, I feel all recharged and all ready to get back to work refreshed!


Fresh Rose - soothes and brightens your mood


I enjoy using the Fresh Rose scented ones after work, after reaching home!

Sometimes I really feel so tired I wanna rest a little, laze a little on the sofa before carrying on with my other work like editing photos and videos etc.

After being all refreshed and mood all brightened, I'm all ready to continue my 2nd job back home!


Lavender - sage aroma calms and relaxed your senses


I guess I don't really have much to say for Lavender.

The best to be used when you're going to bed.


I love putting the Lavender steam eye mask just before going to bed.


Just put it on, relax and bed and knock out till the next morning, waking up all relaxed, fresh and recharged!

And if you're asking me which is my favourite?


I must say it's Fresh Rose!

I know it's a girly thing but I believe just by the scent of your favourite scent you already started to feel relaxed. Plus the comfortable temperature of 40℃ heat to  soothes and relaxes my tired eyes..

I only have one word to describe...

True foundation to beauty with Neutrogena

Advertorial

Hi everyone!

Many people have always been saying that my skin is good and stuff.

I must say that aside from the gift of good genes passed down my mom's family line, good skincare routine is also a very important factor.

To me, having skin that is clean (like of course), hydrated alone is no longer enough!

As my work now requires me to not only work in a very dry environment all the time, I am also required to work for very very long hours that are often even hours that everyone should be sleep.

Yes, I mean over night.

When you are just about to go to bed, I am probably just getting up to go for work.

This causes my skin to not only be very dry, but also loses its glow over time.

Well not to worry! Neutrogena has 2 new cleansing product that would help you with hydration and brightening!


Presenting Neutrogena's 2 new foaming cleanser from their Deep Clean range!

Hydrating for dry skin problem and Brightening for dull skin problem. 


And my choice is definitely the Brightening foaming cleanser!

Like mentioned earlier in this post and my other YouTube videos, I face problems with my dull skin due to the weird working hours and lack of sleep because of my job.

After using the Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening foaming cleanser, I feel that my skin has become much more brighter! I believe I will be able to get back the radiance I used to have before my current job! 


But also, good skin has to be well hydrated, too!

I love using the Neutrogena Deep Clean Hydrating foaming cleanser at night to not only make sure that my skin is well cleansed from all the dirt and dust after a whole day out, but also well hydrated before going to bed!


Do you know that a good cleanser is like the most important factor in your skincare routine?

Just imagine you have a canvas that you're gonna paint a beautiful painting on it.

Be it how good your painting skills are, without a nice, well prepped canvas as a good base, be it how skillful you are at painting, your painting will just not end up as pretty and beautiful as it would be on a nicely prepped canvas.

Only with well cleansed skin will all your other skincare products be able to work to their maximum!

The Neutrogena Deep Clean cleansers are able to do so as they foam up to be really really fine foam which will help cleanse 99% impurities from deep within!


Only with foam that fine will it be able to cleanse your skin deep! 

After wash, my skin feels not only well cleansed with any tightness but also fresh and brightened!

Check out my review video below and see for yourself how fine can the foam be! 



I really really love the texture, light sweet floral scent and results the Neutrogena Deep Clean Brightening foaming cleanser gives me even after one single wash!

Neutrogena Deep Clean Foaming Cleansers are available at Guardian, Watsons, NTUC, leading pharmacies and supermarkets at a retail price of $11.50 each!

You just have to try it for yourself to believe that cleansing daily can actually feels so good!


Thank you, Neutrogena from making a good start for my skincare routine possible!

Like I said in my video, it's a foundation! 
Only with a good foundation will ou be able to achieve great skin and look awesome even without any makeup!

Solo Korea Trip - Happy Birthday Unnie!

Travelogue

Hi! Sorry everyone that I went MIA again. Was really busy and I don't even have much time to rest. Like now, my head hurts like hell. I have been having this horrible headache for the past 2 days. Never did it stop hurting at all.

Anyways, back to my Korea trip!

14th of April, 2014! The 3rd day of the solo trip to Korea and it was my sister's 30th birthday!



Started my day out alone with a packet of White Grape Yogurt Drink while waiting for the train to Hongdae! And yes, the hotel I was staying at is in this wulu station Dapsimni.

Guess I'll do a separate post on the hotel I stayed at another time.

I personally feel that it's a good place to stay at and budget enough, too!

Anyways, so yes I made my way to Hongdae in the morning for a little shopping! 



If you see this shop, you know you're near...


See the sign up there?


TADA!!! The MAIN store of Style Nanda!

Ok. I'm still not exactly a fan of Korean fashion. The main reason why I wanted to go there is go get 3CE cosmetics. LOL!


Look! There's even Style Nanda vending machine! LOL~




Ok. I can't really show you how is it inside but here's a short video that I sneakily shot. *oops!*






Next! I headed to Sogang University to meet my sister who was studying Korean there that time!


Seriously, I've always wish that my school has such a place for students to just laze around in between lessons. But no~ we do not have such a place in campus here in Singapore. *sobs*


Lunch with my sister, Jeffrey (my sis's friend in Secondary School) and her classmates in Sogang!
So multi-nation! There's Singaporeans, Malaysian, Japanese, Swedish and... what's the last one. Australian if I didn't remember wrongly.  


And yes! I LOVE ddeokbokki!!!


Order all your favourite ingredients and there you have it in a pot!

And that's not all!


When you're done, ask the ajuma to add in fried rice! Super delicious!!!


Even if you're full with all the goodness from ddeokbokki, you will sure still eat the rice! Just too yummy to miss!










Next! The birthday girl decided to bring us to the best jimjilbang in Yongsan!


Looks so high class ya?


It's actually really affordable for just the entrance fee to enjoy all the different types of baths.

Massages and other services are kinda expensive but still affordable.

Just entrance fee alone is 11,000 won which is around SGD 11-12 only?! And you can actually spend a good half a day there!


First is to get changed!


Camwhore with my sister!

Blurred the background just in case...


Us and our goat hats!

Yes, my sis and I made Jeffrey do this with us! LOL!!!


At the Jade room!


Traditional room!


It's just way too hot for my sister so she just stood outside to help us take photo.

And after a hot room, the ice cold room!!!


Jeffrey and the small snowman


My sis and the big snowman!


And me? Of course the big snowman! HAHA!!


Time for some snacks! Got sikhye and charcoal eggs!


Sikhye is super yummy!!

And like in dramas, we play scissors, paper, stone and the winner gets to hit the egg onto the loser's forehead to crack the egg!


YEAH!!! The birthday girl wins!!!


Look at my sister's evil face!

Poor Jeffrey. The egg didn't break at all!

After that, we split up to go and enjoy the different baths before heading to dinner with my sister's Korean friends!


Dinner with Jake and Su Bin!

Ok. I don't know Jake's Korean name and Su Bin does not have a English name. 


And YEA!!! Super fresh fish from the fish market just beside! 


After dinner, we spotted Gongcha cafe before heading home and the poor girl who have been living in Korea for one and a half months miss bubble tea so we stopped by for bubble tea.


A little cake as the birthday cake!


I must say Gongcha in Korea has more flavours and feels healthier. 
Less sweet and they have more "healthier" flavours like Ginger Milk Tea that I had.


Found this little cutie at the train station to accompany you while you wait for train. So cute right?!




So yup! We headed "home".


Relax after a long day watching We Got Married Global Edition 2 on TV that day with the ridiculously huge TV in my room.

Seriously, it takes up almost that entire wall it is on! Just look at my small jacket hanging in the background!

Oki! That's all for the 3rd day of my solo trip in Korea in April!

See you soon!
