Project 365, Day 275: Astro Boy Shirt

Photo #275: October 2

I’ve started unpacking the omiyage I bought, and this shirt makes me smile a lot. We still had time to shop around Haneda Airport, and when I saw this, I immediately knew I had to buy it. It’s my most expensive purchase in Japan, but I know it’s worth every yen!

I may not be as active as before, but I’m still proud to be called a Rusher! 🙂 I still listen and send entries whenever I could or if I could relate to the topic. Thank you for inspiring creativity, humor, and feel-good craziness for 20 years, The Morning Rush!

2015 Project 365, Day 356: Astro Boy LED Sign

Photo #356: December 22

When I write reviews on my blog or create vlogs about restaurants, I don’t expect anything in return; I simply love promoting businesses that have good stories and food, of course! So whenever I receive stuff from the owners, especially from Marikina, I feel so honored! Thank you for this LED signage, Tito Alvin and Tita Rosemarie of Tokyo Tempura Marikina! ❤ I am happy to share that my write-up & vlog on their restaurant are the most read & most viewed on my blog and YouTube channel, with 12, 719 (and counting) & 1, 283 views respectively. ❤ In case you haven’t watched the vlog (the video description includes a link to my blog entry), here you go. 🙂
