Jun 30 2009: I am always on the lookout for stuff that is cool, beautiful, fun, wacky or attracts my attention in some other way. Recently I found three that just made me smile.

wowchicken: The muffin mold are perfect for a party or to make a cute birthday cupcake. I should get one of those.
Kjeld Duits: Hi Jini, they are quite reasonably priced at J-List, I thought. Links to the shopping pages are below the article if you are really interested.
Jini: ooh, i totally love the cloth sandal !!! i totally wanna buy them, i love the colours too (: and the hello kitty muffin mold is cute too XD

Personalized Umbrellas

Jun 29 2009: We are in the middle of the Rainy Season in Japan. Umbrella time! I often use the cheap vinyl ones that you buy at convenience stores. They are cheap, but impossible to distinguish from other umbrellas. Now there is a fix!

Kjeld Duits: @Charlotte: I have lost quite a few umbrella’s myself. I am not sure though if we would be considered Heavy Umbrella Users… For that you have to use a lot of them.
Charlotte: “This is also great for people who are dismissively categorized in Japan as 「ビニール傘ヘビーユーザー」Heavy Plastic Umbrella Users, people who repeatedly buy such an umbrella, forget it and end up buying a new one, over and over again.” Aw…they have a special insult for that? That’s just mean. Umbrellas are difficult to keep track of! …I have 2 broken umbrellas in my car alone!
freethelamps: So cute, but I wonder if it looks better with clear umbrellas like in the picture? and hopefully it will soon be available online.

Watch Your Head!

Jun 07 2009: Hair bands are usually worn high on the head, but since about last year an increasing number of Japanese women wear them on the forehead. Shades of 1960s hippiedom.

joeyoeyannanna: I tried the braid think across my head and it looked really cool!!
Kjeld Duits: Glad you found it helpful, Joeyoeyannanna.
Joeyoeyannanna: Woah! I love how it looks on the second picture. (the girl with the pink polka dotted head band). I never thought about braiding my hair like that. I should try it some time.
