    Tokyo: Shinjuku Gyoen, Halal Ramen Ouka, Daikanyama

    Shinjuku Gyoen (新宿御苑) The cherry blossoms had gotten their groove on when Ottie and I visited Shinjuku Gyoen. We were super lucky to have been there for the blooms! Shinjuku Gyoen has an entry fee of ¥200 (~SGD $2) per person. This comes with a map to explore this huge area. Everyone knew about the sakura blooms at this park, so it was quite crowded! We had to join a small queue when we arrived at 1pm, and queues to enter were even longer when we left the park at about 2.30pm.

I guess it’s a good opportunity to exercise my eye in search of interesting ways to feature everyday structures? We’ll see. My second outfit in collaboration with Zaful’s 4th Anniversary (going on until 25 June 2018!) features an off shoulder crop top – my first outfit featuring the old trend! Honestly with my frame I’d always thought that anything off shoulder would simply slip down my chest, but I took a chance on this and found…
