I just have too many suppressed feelings when I visited Ueno Park a couple of weeks back. This was not my first visit during spring, but definitely a first witnessing cheery blossoms in full bloom, and it was beautiful! 

I took a risk leaving work for the sake of my parents’ request to visit them. During my entire visit I’ve been juggling work, more work and family affairs, and it was bananas! My 14-day itinerary was packed that I had to sleep earliest at 3am and to wake up the following day at 7:30am, to please what I left and where I am. I have countless thanks to technology and awesome internet service Japan has!

I am definitely going back, hopefully to hangout under the cherry blossom trees with awesome company over laughter, food and drinks ;) 

Now about what I wore, I was determined to keep that spring vibe by keeping color black out of my color palette. I just thought my floral maxi skirt will be perfect, but since it was extra chilly that day I paired it with a winter Mary Quant coat in my favorite mustard yellow. As you notice I even used the concept of balance here, winter + summer = spring! LOL

On me: Mary Quant coat; turtleneck from Uniqlo; maxi skirt from Apartment 8 Clothing; bag from Louis Vuitton and boots (not seen) from Stradivarius

There can never be any perfect timing wearing a Mickey Mouse shirt when your destination is Disneyland! Well, in my case Disney Sea — the part of the theme park I prefer, attraction wise. I memorized the whole park like a map is drawn at the back of my palm!

Bring me to Tokyo Disneyland and it’ll take me a while to remember, but still map-schmap, who needs it! :)) 

Disney Sea was made for everyone’s favorite mermaid, Ariel. Part of this park also includes pretty much the characters/movies related to water, with Arabian Coast/Agrabah, Indiana Jones and Toy Story put in between. Sounds confusing but it was well-connected that it actually made sense once you’re there. 

In case you’ll be visiting Disney Sea, here are the attractions worth queuing for: 

  • Journey to the Center of the Earth - Pretty much why the volcano was built. The idea is once the volcano erupts, there goes the coaster you are on!
  • Ranging Spirits - Another roller coaster with a loop. Lockers are available to have your Mickey merchandise placed and secured.
  • Tower of Terror - My ultimate fave! An elevator ride that will drop you 4 storeys high. (self-confessed heights junkie here!)

Attractions at Disney Sea are more for the taste of adults, and so as their menu! Alcohol is being served at their restaurants. 

Oh and if you notice that bear in a backpack, that’s Shellie Mae (paired to Duffy). I nearly curse those bears as they are the reason of endless queues outside the store of Uncle Scrooge. I tell you it’s bananas!!! I remember four years ago, it was only me who appreciates Duffy and I can take photos with every mascot I see.. Oh what awesome marketing can do! Duffy and Shellie Mae are more popular than Donald and Daisy now! D: #ilovedaisy

PS: Watch out for the Disney Villains at the final show! The projections are insanely beautiful!!! And Mickey speaks Nihongo. :))) 

[On me: Zip up flank jacket from Love Army; Mickey shirt from Bershka; beaning from Ever New; skirt from Lowry’s Farm; leggings from CK; bag from Zara and shoes from H&M]

PPS: Those H&M spring boots is perfect for long walks! <3

"I was just enjoying everything, when I realized I haven&#8217;t thought of you. I haven&#8217;t wished you were here, I didn&#8217;t utter your name under my breath.. and I am happy, I know you are too, and I see nothing wrong with it."

Sushi kinda night! 

"To look out for sunrise and chase after sunset." 
I always have a thing about the heavens, too bad my camera only permits me to capture the sun in it. Guess I see stars too precious enough, only my eyes deserve to appreciate its beauty and my memory as its souvenir. 
Always a pleasure to have the best view of you.
