Print Club

Japanese people are strange.

For as many lovely things Japan holds, it's got some wierdo things. Like how it's still 1975 in a wierd way, people smoke indoors, women aren't train conductors or chefs, there is absolutely no wi-fi anywhere.

But no one does retro like the Japanese, or a beautiful kind of quality that is definately inefficient but is made for the pure beauty of it, like buying all the original denim looms from America and producing beautiful Japanese denim.

Or there are things like Print Club, pirikura, where no boys are allowed. Girl's only, mostly schoolgirls so they can take cute pictures of each other and trade them. The messed up part is, all the machines now have this digital enhancer that makes your eyes bigger? Saya and I already got some large peepers, so it basically just made us look insane. We had to take the time to make our eyes " natural "

After awhile all the floodlights that make your face kind of flat, and the overly cute Japanese girl voices talking to me and giving me options started to make me feel crazy. So I got really tired and just wanted to leave.

Day Dream Nation

Once upon a time I was lucky enough to do something for Day Dream Nation, and now I am lucky enough to be there friend. I went to the soft opening of the BEAUTIFUL Day Dream Nation Store in Hong Kong. And I got to see my artist T-shirt in action!

Thank you Kay for the loveliest Hong Kong evening that ever existed. XO

hotel dance

something about being far away from home makes you notice all your wierd flaws. I guess because i never have time to look at them normally. so the only thing to do then is to be super goofy.

Giant Asian

new leather suspenders, yes of course I got Oanh a pair too.
These guys, hydrating. Samson rolls with grapefruit to stay awake and peppermint oil to get rid of headaches.
I will always be fascinated by this Asian kind of Lady Grandma look. It's amazing. Sweet display. The store is called Sweet Shabby.

As always in Korea, it is lovely and this is just the beginning of me being the Giant Asian. It's actually not so bad here, it's when I get to Hong Kong or Tokyo, when my Gigantor complex kicks it.

Hmmmmm ..... me eat tree........mmmmmm......HOUSE?
