Yesterday I was finally able to meet Manami, my oldest and dearest Japanese friend. We`ve known each other for more than 7 years now and have spent so many great days&nights together.
When we were sweet 17 years old high school students we were already hanging out together XD
Since she was always in Europe when I was in Japan, we didn`t have a chance to meet for more than 16 months ^^;
We decided to go to Shimokitazawa, which is a cute&little town just few minutes from Shibuya. It`s a very stylish part of Tokyo, with lots of Cafes&Second-Hand-Shops and it has been the movie-set for various J-Dramas ～for years we have spent our afternoons there and it was so nice to relax in the narrow streets again.
Some purikura ～ again just some photos because our keitai hate us and couldn`t receive them.
Last week we had to save my hamster Pudding. She is a present from my bf and although I have never been into pets which live in a cage (I`m 100% into dogs), I fell in love with her in the pet shop. Since we were dating for exactly 4 months on this day, my bf simply decided to buy her for me. She is eating so much and she is getting so round and cuddly XDNow she is already about 4 months and she is so big! I think it`s because she is a きんくま hamster, which are one of the tallest among hamsters. She knows her name and follows you if you call her. She also using the hamster toilet and seems pretty smart (I always thought rats will do this but not hamsters XD).
Anyway...I heard her squeaking really loud and suddenly a huge cockroach appeared in front of her, same as big as my hamster. I called out for Yoshi, just grabbed my hamster and left the dirty job of getting rid of the little monster up to him.I`m not sure how this big thing could enter our apartment and why it was sitting in front of my little Pikachu, but I was really shocked...I have grown up in the countryside and I can touch insects without big problems but this one looked like a mutant. Yoshi thinks the cockroach came to our apartment through the toilet...(which IS REALLY disgusting), was looking for food, entered Pudding`s cage and since she is a real
Hamster- Diva she tried to defend her little house with all her food collection...
Creepy...I imagined waking up having a cockroach as tall as I am inside my living room...poor Pudding. But she got a big salad from me and now she is fine again XD And I was cleaning for 2 hours because the imagination that this cockroach was everywhere just gave me the feeling of moving into another apartment just right away XD
Tomorrow we`ll watch Twilight 3 since Yoshi can leave after 1 pm ～ nice. And we will buy a new blanket because the winter is coming (well...someday...it`s still about 16 degrees here XD).
I`ve uploaded some photos of the Ueno Zoo trip ～ for those who wanted to see the otters XD
