HI. It's 2013 here. What the heck. By the time you read this or by the time I finish this post, it will probably be 2013 for everyone.
Yesterday, I headed over to Grant's place to hang out for the day before the countdown festivities. I packed my littl(er) suitcase to bring some stuff over so Grant could bring it back because I decided to increase my wardrobe over here and wouldn't be able to carry it all home myself XD.
First, I picked up some chicken broth at the grocery store since Carter was still feeling sick. Grant and I made him some chicken noodle soup.
lololol, one day...
Since Carter was still feeling gross, he slept while Grant and I went out for a bit. We only have a few more days together, so we're trying to make the most of them.
We decided to go look around a store called Tokyo Hands. It's the same store we went to after eating at Nakamoto with Yuuki. It has a ton of random and fun stuff. ^___^
Like this here Takoyaki maker:
After looking around for a bit more at things like knives and tofu memo pads, we went to pick up some groceries for dinz.
We picked up this bad boy.
While Grant and Carter played some Magic, I cooked some dinner for us ^___^.
We also picked up these amazing Maple cookies. Omg. So good. We had too many of these...
We decided to go around Shinjuku for a bit and maybe go do a Purikura.
Look! Takoyaki. I made sure to take the most appetizing picture of it. lolol. Some of us had gone to the bathroom and then regrouped and Sumire was holding 2 takoyakis. Her brother bought us them. And then left. lololwut.
2013.AWwWWww YeahHHHh. FIREWORKS TIME.
This is...fireworks? It looked like the ferris wheel was going to start on fire. XD
Grant took a better picture...
These guys are just great together. There was no posing done in this picture.
Extra local! That's something you don't see everyday O___O
On New Year's Day (yesterday), I went for a walk around town and to a nearby 7-Eleven to download a gift on Animal Crossing.
These are on everyone's door and also by store's doors.
So empty O_O
While we walked around, it seemed that every open store had a grab bag available. Grab Bags. In Harajuku. I was in awe.
I may have had to pick up another grab bag after this. lololol.
There were so many stores that I would have loved to get grab bags from, but ACDC definitely gave bags with things I would wear for sure, for the least amount of money. Also, I have now managed to refill the suitcase that had the clothes I gave Grant to take back. Halp. XD
Harajuku just looked awesome yesterday.
lolol, but apparently there was a Nike grab bag in another city x___X. Aw man! This ACDC stuff is pretty amazing though...I mean, one of the bags had galaxy pants in it .^___o.
After talking for awhile, we went outside to check out the food venders again.
Sweet fer eeking building in Harajuku:
THIS IS ART, GUYS:
Grant shared some spoonfuls with me ^___^ - French Toast and Jamoca Almond Fudge:
This is the Forever21 in Shibuya:
Shingi wanted to stop at a sweets store located in the basement floor of a department store:
Shingi then bought Carter some mochi-looking sweets. Man, he is too nice. He wouldn't let us buy him anything, but we insisted on the Baskin Robbins and then Grant bought him a little bottle of whiskey.
Then, it was back to Shinjuku.
Today, we might go get some ramen at Nakamoto ^____^. We'll probably hit up Shibuya again. Who knows? We're in Japan, man.
