Scratch n' Sniff

Scratch n' sniff what? Say whaa?

Panties n' thongs!

If you scratch it in all the right places, it could smell like... cherry ice cream, fortune cookie, lemon lollipop, blueberry muffin, bubblegum, strawberry, cherry pie, chocolate cake... and mystery: stank puss!!!

You can snag them for about 15 stones a piece and size ranges from s-xl.

Dear Santa,

If the mooning garden gnome I asked for yesterday is too raw for the neighbors, then I ask you to send along with it: Moony Man from Unicharm.

100 Stuff Me Like


The world of Bollywood. Sundays are reserved for family Bollywood time. Bring out them boxes of kleenex and make tea during their long music videos. Although I must say, this is one thing in life that I will accomplish:

100 Stuff Me Like


Natalie Dee.

Born in Ohio, she publishes a webcomic. Her husband Drew also has his own webcomic, "Toothpaste for Dinner." What's even more awesome is that they two write a collaborative webcomic, "Married to the Sea."

Her stuff is so awesome and cutesy!!!

That's just like moi.

Christmas List #1

Not in any order.
Will post as it comes to mind.
No pressure.
Just a wish list to enjoy.

#1 - Get in Shape Girl.

Freaking awesome! Will definitely inspire me to get in shape, girl. It's pink, it comes with a cassette, a cassette player and the bar which I can attach to my wardrobe door! I would also like the outfits they are wearing for my 80s loving 90s butt. Much more inspiring than my Wii Fit at the moment.

I'm just a mops

There are many things that leave me frustrated and annoyed about this little city called Tokyo. I must admit a lot of it probably stem from comparisons. Comparisons I make to Colombo, comparisons I make with Singapore, and not forgetting the comparisons I make with 昭和 (Showa) Japan of the 80s. My memories of being in Japan in the 80s are scarce, but vivid I must add.

It was awesome being here then... from the toys, to TV, to people watching. Seeing all the crazy rockabillys dancing their hairs off at Yoyogi park, Yankee boys hanging out in the neighborhoods, wild 80s pop looking office ladies... There's lots to blast from the past but here is an awesome link to some 昭和music that I have forgotten about that were pretty much the BGM of my childhood in monthly apartments of Tokyo with my parents.

60s Japanese Garage-Psych

'When I come back to home
My mother says I'm a mops
But I don't care about them
Cause I'm just a mops..."

F-ing brilliant. It's good to know that 40 years since that song, my students still speak like that, although it's unfortunate that they aren't as creative as to write songs like that.
