My lovely sister lives in Jersey, only 20 mins from Mitsuwa so of course I told her about the wonderful japanese market and she was more than excited to head over there and check it out. Naturally, I asked her to get me a few things since we were going to be home last weekend. =P So she grabbed me a whole bunch of goodies that I was not able to get last time as well as that gel stuff Fuz bought. However she wasn’t able to find that hair velcro even after the second time around. FUZ, which aisle did you get it from!? hehe.

Anyways, I was craving for those strawberry-yummy chocolate-ly morsels and they were pretty much gone from the weekend. Didn’t last too long
and those Meltyblends.. mmm.. However when I went to Hmart to grab a few things for dinner yesterday and happened to see this aisle, I felt so jipped! I believe Mitsuwa was selling these for $5 a box and here I see that not only was the original price $2.99 at Hmart – $2 cheaper than Mitsuwa; it was also on sale for BUY 2 for $3! OMGAH, haha.. Man. Ah well, lesson learned. This is what I get for not price-checking.. hehe.

I should just stick to my original love – mmm.. pockies. These never fail me and I’m always in the mood for them. The way I eat these is nibble it down to the very last end. haha. How do you eat your pockies? =P

I also saw this one snack that I’ve never tried – Rice crackers w/ seawood. I know you girls probably did. Rice crackers by themselves lack some taste while Seawood is too salty on its own. Marry them together and you get this! My tastebuds were jumping for joy. hehe.

Anyways we headed to a Korean market near us in Philly for some dinner but not without first checking out the beauty counter. Ever since Steph/DSK sent me those lashes, I’ve been hooked on the criss-crossy look. hehe. So they had buy 3 for $10 and I said don’t mind if I do. The second set are 2 pairs of halfsies.. I can’t WAIT to try these on. On another note, M & Fuz are taunting me with Laura Mercier’s Shimmer bloc! Must.Resist! But it’s sooo pretty. SIGH. Decisions, decisions.

Anyways, then it was time to decide on what to eat for dinner. After a few minutes of deliberation, I finally settled on this seafood udon spicy soup. mmmm.. Just as delicious as it’s pictured here. This Saturday, Fuz and I will be heading to Leesburg Outlet to see if we can get some goodies there. The outlet has some high-end stores as well as your mid to lower end stores, but MOST importantly, our local CCO. I really hope I can walk out of there with some things that I’ve been eyeing to get and maybe try to get Fuz hooked on MAC products. muahaha. After that, we will head over to Cafe Muse in Annandale for some much needed vocal exercises on the karaoke machines! haha. Maybe we’ll record some videos for your entertainment – maybe. =P

    Ok..too much excitement about food.
    I’m glad you like the criss cross lashes, you just admit, those queen lashes were super light weren’t they?

    I’ll definitely pick up more when I’m in LA this summer, or hopefully hunt them down in a beauty shop around here.

    Have you tried the Orange Pocky yet? I just bought those..can’t wait!

    Heart you fellow snacker of Japanese variety snacks lol

  15. @DSK haha.. i can always talk about food.. mmm… but yeah OMG the lashes are super light! i have yet to try them on, i’m thinking a video this weekend for sure. =)wait a TICK! haha.. ORANGE Pockies!!!??? now THAT would be my downfall.. mmm.. *gone hunting them down*! hehe.

  16. ahhh, your food pics just did some damage! Now I’m so incredibly hungry lol.

    I picked up 2 boxes of Melty Melts last week at the Jas Mart in St. Makrs in NYC. They were around $1.50 each too =). If you ever come to NYC again, I’ll take you there! (even though it’s pretty small, like a midget compared to Mitsuwa)

  17. @Eleganteve haha i know right? yeah we need to make another nyc trip but with more beauty bloggers gathering! =)

  18. found your blog thru fuz! my eyes bugged when you said you found shishem lashes at a korean market in philly. I live in philly and have basically scoured chinatown and found nothing! lol please tell me where this korean market is!

  19. it’s called Assi Plaza in North Wales, PA. Not sure if there’s one in center Philly.. I’m pretty sure it’s a chain.. hehee.. good luck! =)

  20. Thanks for commenting! Did you ever find the hair velcro thing?
