I am just writing up a quick update on my shopping service. I will also inform my regular customers via email.
- The Japanese government will be increasing the goods & services tax from 5% to 8% as off April 1st, 2014. This means that the costs for items, shipping, and packaging will also increase with it. This means:
- My service fee will increase to 20% of your total order amount (minus worldwide shipping) to cover Paypal and repacking fees.
Other than the changes above, I will be doing my service as normal. Although, I do work full time now which means I might not be able to ship out items as quick as I used to. I will strive my best to ship out your orders as soon as I can!
I have written the above updates on my shopping service page here.
Thank you for visiting my website!
Have a nice day~
Where did the year go? One moment it was summer and I was still studying Japanese, the next moment it’s snowing and I’m an office lady!
The good thing is, end of the year = Christmas is coming! It’ll be our first Christmas with just the two of us this year! We don’t have a tree though since it’ll be a hassle to bring back next time!
On the subway to work now! Ready…to fall…asleep…
Bits and pieces from our little Enoshima trip during the summer～ Autumn has been quite pleasant with warm sunny days and cool nights.
Phil and I went on a short trip to Tokyo and Enoshima for the Obon holidays. We stayed in the same hotel as last year’s trip – really close to Tokyo Skytree! We did quite a bit of board game shopping and revisited the Moomin Cafe at Tokyo Solamachi～We also revisited Odaiba and actually had a good look around! Gundam!
A few thing I’ve been up to in the past few days.
- Gardening! I’m growing clovers, basil, tomatoes, parsley, strawberries, bell-flower, and chamomile.
- Cleaning! Changed the cupboard liners.
- Afternoon tea! Never too much!
I don’t feel too good about the JLPT yesterday, the reading part of the exam was really hard, but the listening was really easy… so I really don’t know whether or not I will pass.. But! I’m so glad that it’s over~~
The day before yesterday was Phil’s birthday~ I couldn’t celebrate it with him because I was studying.. So yesterday I came home with ice cream cake to make up for it!
Have a great week everyone!
So I am taking the JLPT exam for level N1 on Sunday…. and feeling totally unprepared!
Trying to get into a study mood or at least a Japanese mood with this:
This blog is somehow turning to a music dumping place… ええ！？
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
Hello strangers! I’m still here~
Happy belated Valentine’s everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful day full of love~
I joined in with Japan and celebrated Valentine’s day by giving chocolate to the boys (Phil and some male friends)!
I originally wanted to make this chocolate hazelnut slice for Phil but the ingredients were hard to find/super expensive so I ended up making choc chip pikelets for just instead!
Happy Chinese New Year everyone!
It’s snake year this year~~
