I used to have a Paul Smith Wallet but never had a shirt.

Because it’s too elegant and expensive for me.

I’m a man with plain shirts and active sneakers. That’s Okay.

I remembered when I was a student in London and my friend visited me from Japan.
And he insisted me to go to Paul Smith Shop at Covent Garden.
Inside the shop, I really felt awkward to see those pricey tags

I bought many nice reasonable clothes at Camden Town or other nice flea markets in London those days.
Of course I was a student at that time, I couldn’t afford to buy gorgeous shirts.

But my friend could! (He must have worked a lot to buy Paul Smith )

That was his Dandyism. I think.

 

Anyway when I knew this exhibition coming to Tokyo, I wanted to feel Lovely British Pop Art thing atmosphere created by fashion living legend Paul Smith.

So I invited my friend, he used to be a student at the same time with me in England.

Inside gallery, there were so many visitors (They were so very O-sya-re(おしゃれ) fashionable)

They seemed to be so fascinated by Paul’s works of photos, clothing patterns, cars etc. (even evian!!)

I really love girls… I mean, drawing them~ This was originally a pencil sketch I did when I couldn’t do anything during my internship. I decided to make it digital since it’s been months since I practiced painting via Photoshop. and also I want to experiment more and combine my drawings and Nao-chan’s photo works.

How to Slay your Self-Introduction in Japanese!

Nao-chan’s going to meet his dad. I would like to meet him in person too but it’s impossible since I’m here in Manila and also I can’t skype them since it was a weekday, and I was pretty busy at that time. So I just decided to make video message for his father. I introduced myself.

 

Well it’s not easy. I think in Japanese there are so many ways to introduce yourself, but it depends on the situation:

A Day at Manila Ocean Park

It’s been seven years since I visited Manila Ocean Park for a high school field trip. So I was excited to visit the place again, with Nao-chan this time.

Manila Ocean Park is the only aquarium in Philippines. Some people say it is not as big as other aquariums abroad (but who cares?!) There are so many beautiful sea creatures to see and there are many packages to choose from depending on your budget.

We chose the ‘Deep Sea Rush 6’. which costs 580 pesos. It wasn’t so crowded as we visited there on a weekday. (yey!)
