From Japan With Love

Minasan kon'nichiwa. Watashi wa Nihon e no watashinokyūjitsu no ryokō kara modotte imasu. (Please use google translate). OMG...Japan is the best country so far (macam la aku visit banyak sgt country)...I have so many things to write but unfortunately...so less time to spend because of a tons of work I have to finish up at the office..padan muka aku ...cuti lama sangat...
 
But no worry...I’ll write the detail of my journey slowly...so bertabahla semua coz you guys about to read a very long blog story of our 9 days experience in Japan...
Before I start with our first day which is on the 20th May 2013...I want to show off a little bit of all the merchandise we bought from Japan...
 
Episode 1 : The souvenir to Orang Kampung
 
Frankly speaking...everything there is sooooo expensive...I want to buy t-shirt I Love Tokyo to the orang kampung. My budget is RM10 per t-shirt". Dream on...the cheapest t-shirt that have a word Japan in it will cost around RM30 - Rm45...base on location...that will be the cheapest... we manage to buy t-shirt for apak, abg malik, my abg n adik ipar in Kyoto ...which cost us RM30... luckily we bought it there. When we went to Tokyo and we bought t-shirt for a few other person, the cost is RM35 pertshirt..
 
The hard rock cafe t-shirt we bought is for my abg ipar n my office mate. The t-shirt cost is RM60 per t-shirt...that's not a souvenir ok...they gave me money to buy...

So total cost of the t-shirt is roughly RM550

 
For all the ladies... we bought Japanese Cotton... gosh...there's so many shop and the kain is so pretty...the price is vary from 100 yen to a few thousand yen...depending on the material.. I bought all together 20 pieces of 4 and 6 meter of Japanese cotton...3 for me...9 for our family and 8 for selling at the office...it is worth buying...please if anyone go to japan, do buy a lot of Japanese cotton and sell it in Malaysia...the price is very different...Last Sunday I went to Cotton house in Nilai...they sell all type of cotton...there is a cheap cotton like Thai cotton or Vietnam cotton...but Japanese cotton is so expensive...the cheapest I saw is RM60 per meter and I sell to my friend RM90 for 4 meter...it is worth buying...
 
The first one is mine and fiesya...the next one is for selling. The below one is for the family... total cost we spent for 20 pieces of Japanese Cotton is around RM500
 
 

Then we also bought a few small things like pen, fridge magnet for friend and family... the pen cost roughly about RM8 per pen...means if it has 4 pen in one pack it cost about RM30 - Rm40 per pack... don't think it is cheap... Fridge magnet price roughly around RM10 per piece... believe me you won't find cheaper than that...if you want more extraordinary FM you have to spend around RM30-40 per pieces....hahaha...don't think you can but cheap souvenir to your office mate...ok.. Total cost of the pen, FM, lighter and picture frame is around RM450

 
 
 
Episode 2 : Our Collectible T-Shirt
 
As usual..we tend to collect t-shirt where ever we go.. and this time we bought a few t-shirt with a massive explosion price... gila mahal...
 
let's look at our Hard Rock cafe t-shirt...we manage to find 2 hard rock...one in Osaka and one in Tokyo so we bought 4 t-shirt in Osaka and 4 in Tokyo... total cost...muahahaha RM600..
 
 
Of course our Universal Studio Japan t-shirt... a bit disappointed here because there's only one design in the whole store in the USJ that write USJ at the t-shirt...I don't know why all the t-shirt just have the character picture printer without the word universal studio... why on earth I want to buy a t-shirt with hello kitty face printed without stating it is from universal studio japan...I spend a lot of money and people might think I bought the t-shirt in any of Malaysia shopping complex... luckily we found 1 design for the kids and one for us although the t-shirt is not at our best satisfactory because there's a snoopy in it....but still the cost is ....RM 300


 
Next is the Disneyland Japan t-shirt...still same case as universal studio...we only manage to find one design only with Disneyland in it...and the price is so overrated but nevertheless...we have no choice but to bought it...the cost is RM400
 
 
And we also went to Uniqlo...the design is so cute and the price is cheaper compare to Malaysia...we manage to buy a few things...t-shirt for kids is about RM30 per piece ...the total cost is RM200
 
 
That's the end of the t-shirt story...
 
 
Episode 3 : The Collect able Items
 
This is the best part ever...Japan has the most adorable toys and so much you can buy...we bought a lot of collectible toy to be put in our almari...everything is so cute..and of course Fiesya and Fahri bought a lot too.
 
The pink and blue lollipop twinkling lamp we bought at Disneyland...the cost is about RM25 per piece...the small figure like stitch, Mr potato and doremon come from telor tikam...adik fahri love that thing so much...the cost is about RM10 per pieces... the hello kitty set we bought in ueno street..it cost about RM15...the doremon, dorami, sizuka and the orange monster we bought in doremon museum and the cost is about RM25 per piece.


 

 
The next one is Toy story color change ...i you put in cold water the color will change...very interesting...we bought at Disneyland and the cost is RM40 per box and we bought 3 boxes...and there's Mikey from monster Inc...mickey light with sound that cost us RM70...really pitam coz fiesya want it so much sampai nangis2 ... and Mr hubby vintage toy...gaban and masked rider ...not interested..heheh 
 
 
 
Next is fiesya Hello kitty bought in USJ (RM90), Fahri dinosaur USJ (RM70), Fiesya stitch hairband (RM40), Fiesya Stitch blue and pink from Kiddyland (RM70 for 2), the kids toothbrush from Disneyland (RM30), Fahri Rex from Kiddyland (RM30), My senduk from Kiddyland (RM25), Monster Inc Hat (RM70) from Disneyland, fiesya school bag from Disneyland (RM150) and popcorn box from Disneyland that cost RM50.
 
Mine is a car set from tomica shop. the cost is RM25 per car and i bought 15 car...and the cute Little cartoon character which i can't count how may and the cost is RM3 per piece. the dancing alien (RM70) and Mikey again (RM70).
 
 
Basically this is all the things we bought from Japan...how much we spent on shopping? Count yourself...i don't dare to know...
 
So do go to Japan...things is expensive but you can skip all the throwing money activity if you're not like us...we are different...unfortunately the 4 of us are the same...we share same interest which we are so crazy about cartoon character...why i said unfortunate coz...when we shop we tend to encourage each other to buy...if we have different interest ...one person may be able to stop the other person from buying...in our case that is the collateral damage we have to bare...muahahah...
 
we already put in our almari...look like it has a few more space available...is this means we need to go for another trip...airasia is having promo now....
 
ok...this will end my From Japan with Love entry...hope there is somebody out there that read my blog..get jealous with what we bought in Japan...then i archive my target...mauahaha..
 
ok...next entry will start with our first day in Japan...till then..bye....
