About two weekends ago I went to Taiwan with my mother for a mother daughter vacation. Taiwan is only an hour away from Okinawa so the plane ride was super short & the awesome part was that we got business class. Also I thought it was funny that on the display of things you can't take on board they had miso paste as one of the items.. like are people smuggling their crack in their miso? I'll admit though.. China Airlines is one of the worst airlines I have ever been on & on top of that they served Mos Burger.. which didn't look anything like a Mos Burger meal haha! But at least it was a short & comfortable trip. We also exchanged our yen for gen. By the way I still don't understand the prices in Taiwan.. all I know is that Hong Kong dollars go a much longer way then in Okinawa!!!

A few weeks ago I did some shopping for some stuff that I needed. I bought a new dress from one of my new favorite stores Axes Femme. Also got some new socks for work, a cute pair of panties, some cosmetics, & some awesome Paul Frank lip balm. :) So I went to Taiwan this past weekend & I'll start posting those pictures soon once they're all ready. :)

About a week ago I tried goat for the first time. In Okinawa goat is really common. I'm always interested in trying new things...so despite what I heard about it I wanted to try it. I'm not very picky when it comes to food so I was not at all afraid of the goat. Then I tried it...& the goat pwned me. I had heard that it was smelly but my mother took me to a place that supposedly wasn't as smelly as what goat usually smells like. For me it was still smelly. I had goat soup & goat sashimi as you can see & let me tell you...I gave it my best shot but I am not a fan...at least I got it off of my to "try list" though. It was an experience to say the least! I had to eat chocolate afterwards to try to keep my mind off of how gross I felt & get the after taste out of my mouth.

Finally for the first time this summer I hit the beach with my friend Yuna! It was the perfect day. The sun was shining brighter then I could hope for & the water just the right temperature. The night before we bought some cute floaties.. Yuna got a Hawaiian inspired tube & I got an awesome killer whale which I named Mr. KUJIRA (say this with a super American accent because that has been our little joke haha). Kujira means whale in Japanese. :p I love the beach so much... I really want to start paddle surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, & maybe even try some jet ski sort of thing! >o< Ideas..Ideas..

Before I posted the Louis Icart gallery from the antique show that I went too. Well here are some of the actual antiques from the show! There were a bunch but here are my favorites. It's nice to get away from all the modern new age stuff for just a bit. Also here is a picture of my mother's friend Meiko san who has her own antique store in the country called Mei's Antiques. She is always very cute & has extravagant taste in fashion which is what I love about her along with her positive personality. I am always learning something new from her.
