A Trip To Mitsuwa Market Place

I had a trip to a Korean barbecue, Manna BBQ in Convoy St. with my brother and few friends. I enjoyed the food and was so full, and the rice is free which my companions had enjoyed so much. Maybe if I only knew I am going to be invited to go with them I hadn't ate a late lunch when I came home from work, I should have enjoyed the delicious rice the way they did. Later on, a friend suggested we should go and visit a Japanese store called Mitsuwa. I should see it, and so we went.

Look at these cute night lights. My eyes was glued on them as I noticed them from the entrance.

To the entrance as we went in, there was the Sanseido Bookstore on the right side and on the the Kayaba restaurant on the left side. And as we continue walking inside, something caught my attention.

These cute night lights!

I'm all set with a cellphone camera ready and so I snapped a photo as soon as I saw this night lights. I also saw sets of incenses but as I saw the price, I stopped myself from picking up and buying any of it. I guessed it worked playing in my head the shopping trick I used to stop myself from buying stuffs I don't need but want, "if you don't need it, don't buy it."

We did some strolling around, looking at products, and I, hoping that I could spot something I need. You know that feeling that you know there's something you need you just don't quite know what until you spotted it? That's how I felt.

I saw frozen foods, fish and meet. And then I saw something cute again.


As my companions continued going aisle by aisle checking out items, I went to check out some Hello Kitty products. And I didn't only saw Pikachu but I also saw this bamboo steamers.


Rilakkuma bears and Pikachu! And as I see Pikachu, it felt like I was traveled back in time when I was in high school. Pokemon was one of the cartoons that was on air at a Philippine channel. And if I remember it right, it was every Friday night.

Are those your friends Pikachu?

But what am I hoping to see in the store? I was hoping to see some nohohon and this Japanese facial cream I was told about that was good for acne. I didn't find either of the two but I still had a good time going there.

      @ Aviannovice: I had fun ^-^' It was actually the first times on such stores that is exciting, hoping to spot something interesting :)

      @drj: A nohohon is a bobble head and known as sunshine buddies as they move around usually their heads side by side in the daylight. They are so cute! ^-^' And I was just wondering how much they worth and maybe get one for the car if ever I spotted them on the store, but I didn't.

      You have a lot of will power, precy. Next time, go easy on the lunch. :) BTW, what is nohohon that you were looking for? Is it something to eat? To wear? or what?

      Sounds like a fun trip. I like to go to the oriental grocery and get cooking things.
