Parties Parties Parties

Henry looks super wierd here:

OK Well Ive had a busy few weeks partying. The first Party I went to was
Teenage kicks on January 6th. It was in Shibuya at the Chelsea Hotel. It wasnt that big a venue and there wasnt as many people as the last Teenage Kicks I went to. But still I had fun...Henry was very grumpy that night, he didnt like the music or the way people danced...BUT it was fun for me. There was a funny punk band that played, they were wearing cool clothes...and they stage dived into the crowd...but no one caught!

Some photos from that night

Me and Spank gals Yuki and Maya

The camera got all foggy from the cold, but this is the band!

I also now teach the SPANK! gals English...I teach them at their shop in Koenji. I went shopping there the other day and visited Eri and Yuki..

Super Kawaii!!!

The next Party I went to was the CSS (Cansai de Ser Sexy) after party in Shibuya at the same venue as the Fashion Parades after Party! So Cool. Henry REAAAAALLLLLLLLY loved it, he is finnally understanding the music and the way people party...its more fun then Melbourne...basically bad dance music is FAVE music so I'm happy...but coming from Melbourne where "cool indie rock" is what is IN its hard to listen to "stupid music" as Henry calls it...but I mean even in New York dance/pop is whats played at the cool clubs...stupid Melbourne music scene dominated by male fuckwit bands (M&N'ers you can laugh at Misshapes all you want...but HONEYzzzzz we all know you are just Jelous...and too late too...Misshapes is dead! Been there done that!)

ok now that rant is over here are some photos!

AND finally Teenage Kicks again this time 19th January in Roppongi...

I was the Champagne girl. I got this messgae on myspace syaing "I like your clothes, can you be champagne girl on dance floor at next kicks" I said yes not knowing what it was...but basically I had to hand out champagne and dance...yay and I got in for FREE and so did henry and thomas and his friend yayayayayaya!

OHHHHHHHHh AND my hair is kinda orangey blonde...on my way back to my natural colour I have to be orange for 1 month.....I went to a cool hair salon in Harajuku that the spank gals go to...its in and appartment...and inside it is like a princess's bedroom...sooooooo coool and cheap! $70 for 3.5 hours and 2 people working on it!!! omg so good!

OHhhh and the Damn Arms played...they are from Melbourne...but I missed most of their set drinking cans of chu-hi fromthe conbini outside!

And also the dj played CRAZY so funny...the song got the biggest cheer from the crowd...sometimes the music is soooo silly!

Kyoto and Osaka

Henry and I celebrated New Year in Kyoto and Osaka. We went for 7 nights. It was realllllly beautiful and romantic.

Osaka Castle

Kinkaku-ji (Golden temple) in Kyoto

Fushimi-Inari Taisha, Kyoto.
Hundreds of red Tori gates line the hillside around the temple.

This is the GIANT Buddha statue that is inside the Daibutsu-den Hall in Nara (below) the largest wooden building in the world.

Below is one of the 1200 deer that roam the hillside of Nara around the temple.

You can feed them rice crackers that you buy for 150yen.

Below is Himeji-jo, Japans most beautiful Castle, built in 1550.

Henry has been here 1 month already!

Konichiwa from Tokyo, where you can ride a panda anytime you want!

I can't believe Henry has been here for 1 month already. It only feels like yesterday when I was madly excited that he would be here in 2 weeks! Its crazy, even crazier because he leaves in 1 month! I'm going to be so sad, maybe I will have to leave with him....

So far we have done alot of shopping, bike riding and partying. We also had a 17 year old from Australia stay with us, who was here in Japan on a school exchange in Nagoya but got kicked out of her host familys house for no reason. She was here for Christmas. Lovely girl. OH and before Henry came I had a few other visitors, Jarra who I've known since primary school and Marrawa who works at Genki and is a circus performer who only wears a Koala outfit. Kawaii!

This is Marrawa plus a few balloons at the after party for a fashion show we went to in Harajuku, under the Marc Jacobs store! The after party was in Shibuya at this cool bar that is decrated with millions of deer heads, chandeliers and guilded mirrors.

Ths fashion parade was at a cool place in Harajuku under the Marc Jacobs store, the runway was on a see through hallway that you could see bear traps under your feet.

Marrawa and Gallermic (the Fashion Ramone) enjoy the chu-hi limited edition strawberry flavour.

Me and Henry look good on bikes.

Henry and Jackie the 17 year old run away from Nagoya also enjoy the chu-hi limited edition winter strawberry flavour.

Gallermic and me.

Henry looking scared on the worlds TALLEST ferris wheel in Odaiba, Tokyo!!!
Its 115 metres tall!

Gotta love the fake statue of liberty in Odaiba!

The cool kids do karaoke!

Christmas day. Jackie made all the food (I was realllllly sick with gastro virus...I had to leave work half way through a lesson to vomit...ewwww). Hillary is with her bf Naoto, and beside me is my new housemate Gabrielle from Canada...
