...Oh hey. I forgot I had a blog for a little while. Ahahaha... Sorry!!! I have photos from our Tokyo trip last month that I forgot to update with, so here we go!
It was a nice little girly trip. Holly, Lucy, Zoe, Tonya & moi went to Tokyo for a few days. Tonya didn't really hang with us for most of it, since she made plans to meet some friends. But, we all had a great time! Everyone but Tonya took the Shinkansen so we got to Tokyo quite early. We grabbed breakfast too on the way. Milk tea & onigiri! Yummmmm!
¥2,000 per night. Pretty damn cheap. We stayed in a dorm for 10 people but everyone was pretty nice. We had bunk beds and I got the top bunk. YES! I love top bunk! Although, if I had sat up at 3am from a bad dream, I'd have smacked my face against the ceiling. Oh well. Can't have everything. So, after a good night sleep we got up and got ready for the day. Now, the night before I wasn't paying much attention to the decorations in this place. However, when I got out of the shower the next day I looked up and saw this staring at me.
So, our plans for today were Swallowtail and Ninja! Awesome! I told the girls that we all had to look nice, since Swallowtail is a fancy place, so everyone was wearing heels and nice clothes. Ahahaha. It made riding the train difficult at some points! But, we all looked fabulous. Holly asked me to take a photo of her heels, so that there's evidence for the ages showing her wearing heels. Lol. And I spotted some fun adds on the train too, so I took some photos of them. (Of course.) Oh, and before you worry, Zoe's wearing circle lenses. That's why her eyes look a little bigger.
I was really excited to go back to Swallowtail. It's awesome! I could write another big paragraph about it, but I'll just leave it at the food was great and the service was just as awesome as the time before. Tonya and Lucy were at my table and we had such a sweet butler. (Everyone agrees ours was the best looking in the place that day and really attentive.) He didn't speak much English, but he tried. I got the spinach fettuccini in a cream sauce, Catherine Rose tea and the special cream puff dessert. The puff was filled with black sesame cream! It actually tasted pretty good! And at one point, the girls had to use the bathroom so I was left alone with Mr. Butler (who's name is actually Aoi). Here is a transcript of our conversation:
Aoi: "Are you enjoying your today?"
Princess Ashley: "Yes, I sure am. I hope to come back soon!"
Aoi: "That is good. I am waiting for you." *with a bow at the end*
Cute, eh? At this point, the girls came back and we had to get ready to go. But, everyone was suitably jealous that Aoi flirted with me. MUAHAHAHAHAHA. It was awesome. I'm going to pick up some of that tea for mum. I think she'd like it. (Given the name and all~)
So, after this we went shopping at Animate! I looove Animate. It's just a big geek store, but it's glorious! And they had all these ads up for shows that I like. I only managed to get a photo of a few. They had a Kingdom Hearts one, but there were too many people around. Darn~
And now I'm getting all geared up for my birthday trip! Can't wait! I'm getting a Takarazuka makeover! It's one of my dream things to do! Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! I'll try to post those pictures in a timely fashion! Promise!
