Many things happened on our first day in Hong Kong, so here’s the continuation of my previous post (Part 1).
Next agenda: Kawaii Pop Fest 2013 Pre-event at Dragon Centre! Kawaii Pop Fest held a special event, inviting locals and tourists to watch. The participants were Dorothy Little Happy, dempagumi.inc, and 9nine who’s scheduled to perform the next day. They had a fashion show to promote Sony’s new product line of headphones. Afterwards, each group performed two to three songs then introduced themselves.
I’m happy because whenever they go to the left side of the stage, they’ll wave and smile at me. It pays to be one of the few fangirls at the audience. (^_~)
Great news! I became a regular at my job recently, so I was allowed to file a 3-day vacation leave. Yay. The best way to celebrate it? Go overseas. My friend, Sachi, and I decided to visit Hong Kong (again) since we had a great time last year. We also received the news that Japanese female idol groups are going to hold a concert at KITEC.
First time to travel overseas and it’s nerve-wracking, but I’m sure it’ll be worth it because it’s a new experience with my friends. Ever since Hey! Say! JUMP announced their ASIA TOUR last January, I’ve decided to cancel my Singapore plans and go to their concert in Hong Kong instead. The ticket sales opened last April 10 via HKTicketing and I’d like to thank Sachi (and Ate Ai) for the good seats! For the accommodation, we searched the Internet and ended up getting a hostel in Chungking Mansion at Tsim Sha Tsui.
Even though I live far from Makati, there’s always a reason for me to go there. That is Timezone Glorietta 4’s purikura booth.
What is purikura? Purikura, short for purinto kurabu or print club, is a Japanese photo sticker booth. It takes digital pictures and allows you to decorate them with stickers, stamps, borders, and/or text. Purikura features differ depending on the machine, but the basic and most common are making your skin look lighter and your eyes bigger similar to dolls.
