Every trip I made to Tokyo,going to Shibuya, Harajuku or Omotesando is not my #1 on the list but my favorite cafe ,Chikyu Tabi Cafe (地球を旅するCAFE) located in Shinjuku. The place may not be the name you've heard of  or find it in those tourist guide books,but this cafe is the place I always walk out everytime happy. Well, that's because the cafe owned by my best friend, Natsusa. 

I would tell you briefly about our friendship. Back to Plainview,Texas in 2002, I've first met Natsusa in hallway when I was on the way to may next class. I noticed her Japanese fashion style,thought to myself  'she looks so cool' like she walks out from the fashion magazines I read by that time. We've met at AFS meeting and I realized she's the exchange student as me,and we've become friends since then (also with my Greenlandic best friend,Johanne). Our friendship has been fifteen years and counting. This is the reason why I've never hasitate taking train from Narita to Tokyo city to meet her, once I fly to Japan.

The cafe has many amazing stories behind, and they're really inspired me. I have seen the cafe since the beginning when there was nothing, but pieces of wood and bricks. Most of the wood furnitures in the cafe have made by her father. He told me the amazing story once I first visit the cafe. As Natsusa herself, she's the true inspiring person to me. She loves traveling so.....much! She loves trying new things especially food. Her experiences about her trips are so awesome. So, once I walk into the cafe, I know exactly that it is her wonderful place because everything she loves is there even squirrel doll.

Healthy eating is also the way I've learn from Natsusa's family once I stay with them during my Japan trip in 2015. It was the year that I start eating tomato! (Don't be surprise!! I was a super difficult eater when I was young)Natsusa's mother told me how tomato, and green tea is perfect for beauty. Most of the ingredients of thecafe's menu are organics which I love that because I can't find a place where serve organic food everyday,though. Having soy-meat karaage lunch plate, and trying persimmon tea for the first time was my happy lunch absolutely.

I wish I should stay longer until evening, so I have a chance to eat 'Tikki Phad Thai' (my mom's Phad Thai recipe,and Tikki is my nickname)but I have to fly back to Australia. I'm looking forward to come back to the cafe. I might plan my vacation to Japan again next year. 

If you made your trip to Tokyo, I recommend you to come to visit my friend's cafe. Everything here comes from true love and inspiration. I'm sure you'll have great experience. Besides, Natsusa and her partner are so friendly and kind.  You'll walk out happy and wanna come back again just like me.

Belt is one of those essential accessories that I love to bring at least one in my luggage every time when I travel. It could give your looks some extra mile. I give you some tips, if you bought one simple long tank top dress.Instead of wearing the dress alone and look like you're wearing PJ dress, if you put one belt matching with shoes and a little more of accessories.Voila! You're ready to go.

This trip I bring the belt which gives me some extra mile length. I remember once I first saw it in Zara store display,I rush to the store  and get one without thinking that I'm only 5ft3. This is the first time I put it on.

This look,it was my flights trip to Perth.My cabin crew friends and I have no idea what we should do in the city.So we walk around Elizabeth Quay, I found this wall with  merry-go-round horses. I knew exactly it goes so well with my looks today. I easily matched my typo' tshirt, with stripes high waisted pants,adding my super-long leather belt which I'm sure they go well together. If you follow me on my Instagram, you probably knows my "high waisted goes with wedges" tips from my Instagram story how to make yourself look taller.So, I choose these Streetball Jeremy Scott sneakers to complete it...and again,Voila! I'm ready to go.

About last refreshing night

-MAR .02.2017-! I've been heard this Ricola's jingle since I was young. 
I was very happy and honored to be invited to Ricola Influencers Event last night in Bangkok dressed like Ricola cranberry herb candy :)

Once I arrived the event, I suddenly feel the refresh from my surrounding, there are Ricola candies everywhere, lovely music, the dancing Ricola box which I wanna take it home with me. I've learn from the herb specialist many thing about 13 naturally pure and fresh Swiss mountain herbs which in every single candy from the (Do you know there's the herb called 'marchmellow'?). He gave me the tips to melt the candy with hot water could sooth my throat. I love this idea and probably try that! 
Later, the night is getting more fun. I meet many influencers from many industries,the lovely Ricola team and enjoy the cocktail which have the candies.   It was such a great refreshing night.

Thank you Ricola Thailand for having me as one of the influencers
