Stacks of finger food that everyone can't finish. I eat sooooo full until can die!!! I loveeee kani a lot so i must have stuffed myself with like 6 kani sushi at least. Along with many many other food O.O

Stuffed face.
With a bunch of really nice Japanese =))) They are Kasahara san's friends!
And one more ^.^V That evening the salon had an overdose of Japanese.. So much so that i feel Japanese. AND I LOVE IT!!! Haha!
Last league of the event most guests left and L-R Takuya, Sio and Ryo started to do their Japanese boy band thing lolol. Quite charming hor!!! Sio say he can strum "Ai Ni" on guitar!!! Maybe next time i ask him to strum for me i sing hahahah #shameless
Hands of God Sio and me!!! I am going to visit him to blow dry my hair one day before we head up for Japan!!! =DDD So that the next 5 days my hair can be awesome for sakura photowhoring. Lolol.

GROUP SHOT!!!! With all the Cleo Hairmake bloggers and Cleo Hairmake staff!
Thank you, Ryo =____=" Lolol.
Much better. Lolol. See this Ben laugh until so happy hahaha.
Me and Cleo Hairmake team! They are bringing over one more Japanese stylist from Japan soon! To cater to the growing clientele. Sio especially has gone to a point it's hard for him to take in new customers or else it'd be hard for him to do hair for returning customers.
And i am proud of him!!! Cox he's really very talented lah. And i am proud of the whole Cleo Hairmake team cox they really put your hair on top priority! No hard-selling, no up-selling. Just whatever you want, they do it better for you =)))

Okay who want to buy insurance? Lololol. We pose like this machiam insurance division picture. Gen does look very director-ish here though. Ben gege look very 忠厚老实 here i'd buy from him. LOL.

In case you don't know.. EVERYONE of us call every girl 姐姐 and every guy 哥哥 at Cleo Hairmake hahahahahah. I don't know who started this erxin trend (probably me O.O lolol) but everyone stick with it. It's shiokanathan to call Peishi jiejie becox she is so young hahaha.

By the way the jiejie and gege must have 翘舌音 and must sound very cheena. Okay. Now you know.

Though i wanted everyone to call me QiuQiu chan ^.^V Lolol.

Okay lah that's all for the re-opening ^.^ Please call 63385250 to make an appointment.

Okay below is a shout out to small business owners / entrepreneurs!

Shop for rent right beside Cleo Hairmake!!!

Entrance of the shop. It had a nice elongated common area and two partitioned room with water point. So it's suitable for manicure salons, facial salons, consultancy agency, cozy cafes, ice cream parlor, etc.. Almost any business.. But not hair salon lah okay HAHA!

As you can see.. One common area, and two rooms. The common area is good to put your reception area / display fridge / seating etc.
Interior. One of the rooms.
From inside facing out.
Outside's right where the lift is! So your shop will be seen first when people go in and out of the lift.

If you're keen please email cleo.tokyo@gmail.com the rental is very very reasonable! =)

Good luck ah! =D Okay i gotta go continue pack for Japan dee.

This feeling

Do you sometimes feel so happy that you feel sad?

It's like you're really thankful of most part of your life.. Fact that you're healthy (mostly).. That your parents are still in good shape (mostly).. That your career is advancing great.. That you have friends who stand by you.. That one by one.. All your dreams are starting to becoming realities =')))

Plenty of things to be thankful for.

But when you slow down a little bit and think about it.. There are people you wish you could do more for and there are things you wish you could do better. Things you wish you could do sooner!

And it's kinda bad to feel like that becox when you feel like you're not doing good enough.. You'd never know it even if you've already done a good job. It's almost like you always belittle your deeds.

So you feel great but you understand that no matter how great you are.. You're not that great.

But i guess that's why we have to keep reminding ourselves to be grateful. For what we have. Instead of looking at what we don't have. But you know when you can say it, it means it exist, things you have and don't have.. So if you know it, how can you not be reminded of it. Right?

Best chance to be truly happy is when you don't talk about things that reminds you of how fragile your happiness can be.

Some people seek true happiness.. Some find it. Some end up unhappy or alone while trying..

Some other understand that happiness is a choice.

Do you know this feeling..? This feeling when you're making the choice to be happy and ignoring the other aspects of your life that you know can do better..

CoolJapan 100Tokyo - Part 1 ^.^V

"OMG???? OMG?!?!!! OMG!!!!"

This was my reaction when i received the email of invitation to be an ambassador for Cool Japan!

It's an government-funded initiative by Japan Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI) to share Japanese contents to the rest of the world! It's basically just to 发扬光大 about the overflowing awesomeness of Japan -WHICH I ALREADY EXPERIENCED AND LOVEEE!!! ^.^V

So METI work with this superbly nice bunch of people from Revamp and selected a group of key influencers from all over the world who love everything about Japanese =D

One of the main highlights for this trip is to attend a launch event for "100Tokyo" it's a collaboration between Google Japan and METI. If you love to look at Japan from different point of view, please feel free to check out 100Tokyo website! Lotsa cool pictures and stuff you'd never seen! =)

I'd get to share about that with you soon! =D Too many pictures cannot squeeze them in one post!

Soooo.. This year 2014 it is officially my duty to share with you just how AWESOME Japan is!!! Not like i haven't been doing that already lah. Hahaha.

Flew up on Japan Airline with Wendy =DDD
 This Wendy really very diu lian cox she only slept for 1hr before the flight so she slept during the plane ride and she snored and then later go take chartered van she also snore lolol. I tell her i secretly videoed all her sleeping episode and i will post up a instavideo. Collage of her snoozing. Lolol.
Reached Japan and had to wait for bloggers from The Philippines so our chaperon from revamp, Olivia got us to relax at a random cafe which also by chance serve nice cakes omg. It's like it's hard to find any shops in Japan that serves anything awful wth. Lol.
Test shot turn out nice.
Accidental flash turn out nice. Lolol. IS IT ME OR IS IT JAPAN THAT MAKES ME CHIOER.

WEI BABY?!?! WHAT DID YOU SAY?!?! =DDD Haha! Okay don't play dee! Food time!
This is everyone's first dish! Made fresh on the spot!!!
Our first sushi! CAN YOU PLEASE SEE HOW GINORMOUS THIS SCALLOP IS!!!! It's even thicker originally but it's been sliced down the middle and then it filled 3/4 my palm hahah!
Wendy and i asked for aburi (slightly torched) for all our sushi cox i can't take raw food and she tried the raw style the other time and loved it but wanna try how is it torched haha. So we had kinda of a different menu from the rest ^.^ The chefs were so dedicated they remember all the details of everyone's specification. Some say don't want onion, some don't want wasabi, some don't want alcohol, all these little details they will remember!!! I am very impressed!
Stella from Indonesia =) She's funny she drank a little bit and turned super red and happy hahaha!
UNI!!! Sea urchin! I was told not to try it outside of Japan cox it can taste horribly wrong like vomit =XXX So actually i damn skeptical but Wendy tried it at Sushi Koh and swears by it. So i tried!!!
AND I LOVE IT!!! It's chilled and taste kinda like sweet and is super creamy like this?!? But the texture is like a melty gummy bear i'd say!!! It burst into sweet cream in your mouth! It's so good that i really will never dare spoil the perfection of image and taste anywhere else but Japan haha.
Chef preparing our next dish =))) So focused!
SOOOOO GOOOOD!!!! The prawns omg. The abalone omggggg!!! I am hungry T.T
My super yummy prawn!!! Fresh and naturally sweet~
One of my favourite dish!!! Crab meat and fresh egg yolk i think! Just so flawless this combi!!!!

Hello you want some of these that melts in your mouth?
Fatty belly of a fish.. And i thought this was as melty as fish can get..
Until i tried this fish omgggggggg.... IT IS THE BEST I EVER HADDDD!!!! SO SUPER MELTY AND FAT AND OMGGG. Cheesie say if i ever try the best cut of beef.. It'd taste something like that.
A happy chef makes food that makes people happy =DDD Thank you!!!
