Oh how I missed Tokyo so, felt so good to be back! I’ve been to Tokyo many times but never with a boyfriend, I’m glad he was able to tag along this time round! He'd been to Tok yo when he was young, but he didn’t had much impression so I was super excited to bring him around Tokyo! It’s more like a food trip, so here’s what we did :

1. Tsukiji Market.  

Honestly, it’s my first time going to Tsukiji market. Unfortunately there’s a big fire happened last month, so the market moved to a new place but most restaurants are still there. We walked in to restaurant that specialise sea urchin ( because bf loves sea urchin ) for lunch and it turns out pretty high rated! I don’t take sea urchin so I had the Meguro bowl, which is also dopeeeee. 

2. Tea & Spoon Matcha Ice-Cream  

Place where you get to fulfil your matcha fantasies. Comes in milk, roasted, or plain matcha from level 1 to 7. We had three scoops : Roasted, Matcha Level 6 and Soy Walnut ( which i think it should be highlighted. ). P  ersonally think that level 6 is a lil bitter, could have gone for level 4. 

3. Pose infront of Vending Machines. 

Because WHY NOT? It’s the most iconic thing to do.

4. Summer time special : Corn & Watermelon ice-cream.

Dominique Ansel Bakery just launched them for Summer special. They taste as good as they look. Pretty lucky to still get to try them before they take off their summer menu. Sadly we didn’t get ti try the Marshmallow ice cream because we were too full.

5. Okonomiyaki at Sakura Tei 

We were looking for Okonomiyaki place, glad that we found one in Omotesando. It’s pretty fun to do, but not so fun to smell like that on the airplane lol. We had our last meal in Tokyo here before we take our night flight back to KL, hopefully we didn’t stink.


The main reason why I was in Tokyo, to check out Shiseido’s Japan exclusive skin care brand - THE GINZA. It’s so exclusive, this brand is only available in Japan and no where else in the world. It is designed for groups who don’t like complications, who only want simple rules to achieve great aesthetics, premium and fashionable.I personally went to Shiseido to learn about this brand and why people are willing to flew all the way to Japan, just to buy their products ( and it’s not cheap at all ).  

I finally understand why after trying on their products. The technology they used is so advance, they don’t have many products but they fits ALL SKIN TYPES. 
One of the products I wanted to highlight is THE GINZA HYBIRD GEL OIL, can be used as serum/massage serum. 

The texture of this product it’s something i’ve never seen before. Unlike other serum on the market, Italian still natural mineral water is used to produce this product. It gives you a  rosy and luminous glow after using the product. It can also be used as a massage serum. I can totally feel the difference on my skin the next day using it. THE GINZA HYBIRD GEL OIL cost 25,000 yen ( about RM960+ ) but they came out with a limited set that comes with a soap ( available on September 21st onwards for a limited period ). 


THE GINZA is only available in Duty Free shops and limited locations. I personally recommend to go the one in Takashimaya Shinjuku Duty Free on the 11th floor so you can get duty free price!
