The Best Thing About A Japanese Boyfriend...

12:50 AM the natural ability to be amazing at crane games!

One of my favourite "dates" is to go to a game centre.

Crane games, video games and purikura - it's a pretty cheap night and so much fun.

I went with Mr Miruku on Tuesday night and he happens to be really good at winning prizes.

Once he wins, he's satisfied - so I get to keep everything and request what he tries to get.


Here's our haul from this week:

Giant sailor alpaca teddy.

His outfit is so cute!

Absolutely huuuge!

I call him Sanchez because my boyfriend calls everything Sanchez!

Limited edition Hello Kitty MP3 player.

I can't believe we got this, I was going to buy a small player for running etc.

Not the best tech ever, but good enough!

How pretty!

Huge tube of Black Thunder, my favourite chocolate! :)

I kind of won this one. I controlled the claw while Mr M told me when to change direction/grab. Teamwork!


Compared to a normal Black Thunder.

Inside was a big bag of bars, yay!

After all that I beat him at Mario Kart, so it was a night of pure win!

Today I finally caught up on all the blogs I missed last week.

I didn't comment much because there were so many to get through, but I really enjoyed them.

I'd like to thank the people who nominated me for awards, you guys are so sweet! <3

I'm not going to pass them on now because the moment has gone, but I really appreciated it.

I was surprised to get mentions from people who don't leave comments here.

It's good to know that you enjoy reading anyway :)
