The Vacation is Over...

It's been a crazy week. Here on Purikura with the Egg-models Naokyun and Genpon, the French Gyaru-O Chris and Matt, and Jonathan.

I've been hanging out with French people a lot lately. They're really cool! =)

On thursday we saw the two girls in the middle who were visiting from Fukuoka in Japan.

Yes, they doesn't only have similar clothes, they're twins. :)


Went by a Japanese pet shops where animals live in very small boxes waiting to be sold. Would be illegal in many other countries.

One of the puppies in there.

Sometimes they even sell apes at those stores.

On Friday we went to EggNam for some Purikura before going clubbing.

The Egg Models Genpon and Naokyun were there and were stunned when they saw Matt and Chris, and starting taking pictures of them. =)

Purikura together! ^^

On the way to Club Atom. Chris looks like a Final Fantasy character, no wonder the Japanese people thinks he's cool!

It was raining a lot but when it finally stopped Matt and Chris played Super Smash Bros IRL! ;)

Jonathan thought it was funny haha! :D

When Matt and Chris took up their ID-cards to get into Atom you could see how they looked before they had this style. =)

Pretty different!

Inside Atom. Only one floor open now so it's very crowded.

Then went to club Destiny next to Atom, where Jonathan knew some people.

Met this mysterious gyaru/manba girl Yuuki there

Yuuki has been working at a tanning salon, teaches children Japanese writing and drink whiskey for breakfast she said...

She had made her own fake eye-lashes in four different colors and tried to eat as little as possible every other meal. Then she's so hungry the next meal that she eats a lot.

Karaoke in the morning.

It has been happening so much in the week since I came back to Tokyo, that I feel like I already need vacation again! ;)

Funny Moments #22 Extreme Decoration

This girl at the hair salon MINX in Harajuku were decorating head phones.

Japanese people love to decorate everything from their cell phones to nails, to the extreme. Sometimes it looks too much, but I think these ones turned out cool. =)

Blogger Carrying a Street Sign

Yesterday when I were going home from partying in Stockholm I saw something you don't see everyday: two people carrying a street sign. :O

One of them were Hugo Rosas, Sweden's most popular male blogger now.

He's known for doing crazy stuff as challenges in his blog, so maybe there were no coincidence that he was the one carrying the sign. ;)


Then Hugo's friends showed up and he hanged onto their car while they were driving away.

With Hugo. That's not my new hair style, it had just been raining a lot. :/

Earlier that night I saw the blogger Desirée Nilson, that i wrote about before, again.

The Swedish blogosphere including Desirée and Hugo.

Went out with Gabrielle and Emmie, their last night in Sweden.

First to the club LaRoy.


And then Collage.


I was surprised to meet Danielle, who used to be at my Japanese school KAI, there. =)


Now my summer vacation is over and tomorrow I go back to Japan. But before I got up from the sofa I thought about the differences between Sweden and Japan.

I guess the main difference is that people carry around beds in the streets of Japan instead of street signs. ;)

Met Famous Comedian =)

We had a sightseeing day in Stockholm and ended up meeting a famous Swedish comedian. :)


Emmie and Gabrielle are here in Sweden for the week, so I tried to show them around in Stockholm.

They thought it was blonde people everywhere in Sweden, like these entertaining babies that passed by. :D


Started the Stockholm Tour at the youth festival Ung08 in Kungstradgarden.

Some fun activities there! Maybe I'm too old though. :/

Standing in front of the fountain in central Stockholm.

At NK, the most expensive mall in Sweden.

Close to NK I saw one of most famous comedians in Sweden, Peter Magnusson. He once did a show in France so he spoke some French with the girls.

It's him to the left, in a show where they make fun of the royal family of Sweden. He's supposed to look like the king. ;D

Here's the royal familiy's castle, where they hide from Peter Magnusson and his sketches. ;)

Many street perfomers this day.

These were performing in Gamla Stan, the old town of Stockholm.

There it's like Stockholm used to be hundreds of years ago, with small narrow streets. ^^

It's the most popular tourist spot, so there's lots of souvenire shops there. Found the perfect souvenire for a Japanese person to buy. ;)

Took a boat from Gamla Stan to Djurgarden.

They thought the Nordic Museum there looked like the Hogwart castle from Harry Potter.

Later we ate meatballs at their guest house. Doesn't get much more Swedish than that. ;)

Went to the bar Wok House in the night where they have palm trees inside.


Reminds me of the club Cosmos in Tokyo where they also have trees inside. It feels so strange to look at photos from Japan when I'm in Sweden by the way.

Randomly met my sister and her friend Tina who just finished work closeby.

Then tried to get into the club Terassen which is like a big staircase and balcony by the sea. It was a member's night so we couldn't get in. :/

Instead I saw Sweden's 5th most popular blogger Desirée Nilsson at TGI Fridays.

That was our day in Stockholm. =)
