8 years

September 9, 2012 in Senti-Emmental

Today, this blog turns 8 years old.

And this is the 1,566th blog post since 8 years ago.

Today, 1 year ago. i was in disbelief how i have blogged for 7 years.

Today, 3 years ago, i got myself the first smart phone wtf.

Today, 4 years ago, i was amazed that i had a blog for 4 years.

Today, 6 years ago, i was still using gif file emoticons on blog.

Today, 8 years ago, i ditched diary and started a weblog. i had 0 zero readers that day. And i should really started building a secret spaceship.


And today, i am writing this in a narrow little hotel Tokyo wondering how the hell this blog has managed to made it this far.

Here’s some little trying-very-hard proofs (more to myself than anyone else, cuz i’m kind of still in disbelief and denial how all these happened)

Today i discovered that somebody made an Instagram account called the @official_cheeserland_fanclub. i didnt even know i have unofficial fan clubs hahahaha. No la. i don’t. A year ago i was so #foreveralone that you will think i made that for myself lolol.

And whoever made this, thank you. Hope you don’t ever post ugly pix of me la haha.


And then i am with my apparently *new* addiction in Tokyo for a secret mission. Addictionship Reunion.



While shopping at Harajuku today suddenly someone called our names wtf. Turn out it was our reader from Philippines who work in Tokyo.

She was so happy to meet us and we were also like super happy to get recognized wtf. And then i told her it happened a few times i got recognized in Japan but they are all foreigners who work/travel in Japan. Unless i get random Japanese coming up to talk to me i don’t think i even remotely “made it” here.


As soon as i told her that, at Laforet Harajuku a Japanese girl came and asked if i am CHIJI wtf.

Turns out she follows my blog and she works at a shop nearby. Ok i might have to take back what i just said.


And then later at an event i met a “big fan” (she say one), who works for Runway Channel and she’s so happy i joined their blog because she has followed me long time. She said she discovered me on Pinterest, and then i stopped her right there and said, but i don’t even use Pinterest! And she was like, no someone posted your picture, that’s how i got to know you and followed you on Kawaii TV and until today.



I feel very touched la.

I have said many times but i’ll say it again. All of you, who are no matter new here or have followed me a long time, thank you. Truly.

For 8 years.

Anyway, blogniversary questions!!!

1.  When did you start becoming a reader of this blog?

2. Which is your favorite blog post(s)?

3. What would you like to see more this blog or anything you think can be improved?


Thanks so much. Happy 8 years Cheeserland!

    Hello Cheesie!! Omg congrats on your 8th-blogniversary!

    I think I started reading your blog a few years ago[my first time commenting wtf], I was searching for Dolly Wink lashes then I came across your cheat for the lash and then more cheats like the hair bow and long hair and short hair cheat hahaha. I love all your blog posts, but especially those from Japan! I wanna go to Japan too, anything you type is x100 interesting, even the squid eyes ._. Your updates on life are welcome too[hinthint kareshi LOL when will we see him] You should update more frequently! I love reading your blog posts and I think I’ve picked up the wtf-ing habit during typing wtf.

  2. Lisa Cheah says:

    1. I probably started reading your blog, maybe 4-6 years ago? Those were the days you were into the whole Gyaru? (cutesy stuff) and traveled to dreamy places.

    2. I have always liked your travels! I think its so much fun. You use to go exciting places!

    3. I am not into the whole Japanese culture, so your recent post doesn’t quite relate to me, or interest me as much. Sorry!

    But its your blog, and you love Japan! So I just stick around and hope you would start traveling around again and hopefully one day we’ll meet!

    Happy 9th anniversary Cheeserland! <3

  3. Abigail says:

    Congratulations Cheese! That’s a huge milestone <3
    I honestly don't know when I started reading your blog. I saw a post in Xiaxue's mentioning something about a Cheesie who "camwhores with such dedication I actually admire her" hahahahaha. She included a link to your blog and so I followed.
    I love all your posts, but I think I like the ones about Japan the most. I see myself in you in terms of "also a foreigner obsessed with Japan" so that is why I love reading you so much.
    I don't know if I'd add anything… I think it's perfect the way it is lol.

    Again, happy anniversary! Congrats, Cheeserland! :3

  4. Rae says:

    1. I started following your blog from 2007! Blogging was quite a fad back in school then and people linked to you. But they all misspelled your name as “Chessie” so I was like, who is this Chessie and why is she everywhere?!?! Curiosity got the better of me and I’m glad it did! I lurb your website! :3

    2. I really liked your updates on your trip on Holland *.* and everywhere else. Your UFOD pictures also heheheheheh. I enjoyed your marriage proposals and there’s this one about you visiting a pet shop and you edited stuff into the pictures I think… so funny I raike it I raike it. And your posts always make me miss Japan so much T__T

    3. Of course I wanna ask you to update more often /selfish but I know you have other commitments and busy busy busy. But I like your blog the way it is! I’ll like it regardless of any direction you take it in woohooooo.


    • cheesie says:

      They still do that!!! Can you believe it?? :X

      Oh the video is called Koyuki invading Cheddie;s turf hahaha yea my mom loves that vid too <3 I will try to update as often as i can!!!

  5. Ken Kf says:

    1. When did you start becoming a reader of this blog?
    A: July 2011

    2. Which is your favorite blog post(s)?
    A: The Otaru post where you went with Xiaxue. I tear so much just by reading it. Especially the ‘Angel’s Brain’ part. Omfg. *writes into my bucket list*

    3. What would you like to see more this blog or anything you think can be improved?
    A: Hmm, as much as I wanted to say you’re perfect, but you know I’m just lying if I say that. But this is just my pov you can just kindly ignore it hahahahaha. I realized the recent posts (this few months maybe) is getting more and more picts with lesser words HAHAHAHA, not sure if it’s a good or bad point, but I kinda miss reading some paragraphs of words followed by a few picts. Maybe im just not understanding enuf that you’re so busy with your schedule since you always flying off to Japan and vacation-ing in Malaysia wtf. Hahahaha.

    Ok, done answering. Me want some blogniversary giveaway! 😀

    • cheesie says:

      Actually you know later i discovered that most food in Japan tastes like angel brain WTF. :X

      I love looong text post too, i love doing that once awhile when im really inspired. I’m very very happy that someone like you still enjoy those old school proper blog post <3 thank you

  6. Congrats on your 8 years! I started reading your blog around 2 years ago. I believe I stumbled upon it either through Xiaxue or Blushberry.

    I always look forward to your travel experiences (and my fav was when you visited Korea.) I go there every summer so a lot of your pictures were so familiar to me.

    I’m glad toy finally have a hubby all for yourself, too! When are you going to show him to the world? 😉

    Love your style and your blog. Keep it up!!

  7. Victoria says:

    Congrats! I’ve been reading for years, found you through Xia Xue ^_^ You’re so fab and fashionable, I live vicariously through you!

  8. Jess says:

    congratulations cheesie. wow, that runway fan is really cute, and it’s awesome you can meet people who read your blog. i can’t say my favorite post, b/c i can’t recall one that stood out against the others. i maybe started commenting a month ago, but i’ve known of cheeserland’s existencefor a couple years. i believe my first post that i read was either fashion of hair related… if i could pick what to see more of, i think you could consider cosmetic product reviews and some more makeup and/or hair type tutorials, on days when you’re just kind of “meh” blogging. posts like the trips to japan and europe and whatnot are fun too.

    also, for some reason, bloglovin keeps doubling up on your post updates, in particular.

  9. Mooij says:

    I became a reader maybe a year ago? I found you through XiaXue, who I found through Michelle Phan 🙂 really happy that I did!
    I love all of your Japan posts but if I have to choose one favorite I would say your Holland post. (That’s because I’m Dutch) I thought it was awesome to read about my country on your blog.
    Instead of improvement I would say: keep on going like you are now! Hopefully you can travel to Japan often so that we can read lots and lots about the wonderful Japan!

  10. Happy 8th year blogiversary!!

    1. I think it was probably 2 years ago since I first stumbled across your blog. I really liked your posts and the way you blog just cracks me up sometimes so I continued to follow and even created a blog partly inspired by bloggers such as you.

    2. My fave posts would probably be those where you spam us with your outfits haha also, the ones where you express your gratitude and appreciation 🙂 It’s nice to see personal posts such as those.

    3. A useless answer but I can’t really say that there is much else to improve on, I’ve followed you for this long because I truly liked it so I’ve continued to do so. But keep them photos coming! And reading about your trips and experiences to Japan are always great!

  11. uyanga says:

    Congratulations Cheesie!! <3
    I started reading your blog about a year ago. It was My sister who introduced it to me (i think) back then I was kinda like really obsessed with asian blogs. (I used to be not so into blogs) So when I "discovered" you and Qiuqiu,you both were so pretty and I kinda started to follow your blogs.
    I think that the things you post are good the way it is. But if you could post more posts about Japan, where you can buy (cosmetics, clothes etc) and like the greatest sushi place you've been in! Cuz im planning to visit Japan next year and I basically dont now so much about how it is there.. 😀
    I really wanna see you Kareshi!!
    And I would be really happy if you could take a look at my blog 😀

    • cheesie says:

      Thank you, Uyanga’s sister!! lol

      I will try to include more info about my Japan posts!! sometimes it is so backdated i end up forgetting most details, so sorry >.<

  12. hannah says:

    happy 8th anniversaryyy~!

    1. about 2ish years ago i think. discovered you via xiaxue!!
    2. this one so hard!! i actually have to think seriously for this. possibly “why i love japan” but also all your fashion entries. <3 (tempted to say live squid eyes hahaha)
    3. this is hard too! maybe more makeup tutorials? your style has changed a bit since you last posted 🙂 but really you're doing awesome and you don't really need any more advice 'cause you already a badass blogger. keep it up, yo! 🙂 🙂

    • cheesie says:

      HAHA i would be happy if you liek my squid eye post 😛

      Will try more tutorials!!! I often upload some HOW TO on instagram so do follow!! 😀

  13. Laura says:

    Congratulations, Cheesie! Haha you have dedication to stick to the same blog for a long time, good on you! :>

    1. When did you start becoming a reader of this blog?
    Probably 2-3 years ago? I either found it through Xiaxue or Google because I wanted to see how warm/not warm to dress for Japanese winter for my trip that year and came across your outfit/travel posts hahaha.

    2. Which is your favorite blog post(s)?
    Travel posts and the ones where you are meeting all these Japanese models lately XD
    But I read all of your posts because I like your sense of humor PUNS GALORE~~!

    3. What would you like to see more this blog or anything you think can be improved?
    Kareshi! Hahaha JK, actually I’m pretty happy with everything 🙂

    • cheesie says:

      thank you!!!!!!!! i think i’m getting quite punless these days T_____T. Won’t blame if you PUNish me wtf ok lame.

      Thank you so much <3

  14. Shirley says:

    One of the rare times I comment. Happy 8th anniversary! I wonder if I could celebrate an 8th anniversary in anything atm

    1. Last year I think. I hunted you down after remembering you from the time when you went to Japan with Xiaxue and bought matching boots (and one for Audrey too). I also really wanted fringe boots at the time haha

    2. Your version of aforementioned post or the one about colourful mokomoko hair scrunchie. It has finally emerged here in Canada but already way out of style so I was too sad to buy lol. Although thinking about those posts feels very nostalgic because I first discovered gyaru fashion about a year ago

    3. I’d like to see more fashion/hair/make tutorials or something with DIY aspect, since i live somewhere where trends are slow to arrive lol

    • cheesie says:

      first of all thanks so much for your time to commment <3

      Haha the boots were awesome wasnt it? I threw mine away cuz they were torn T___T

      Thank you!! will consider more tuts!

  15. Hayley says:

    Happy anniversary Cheesie! You deserve all of the wonderful things that are happening in your life right now. Question time!

    1. I’ve been a reader since the Stellars. OLD SKOOL.
    2. Eh…. I want to say “All Japan entries” but I will narrow the field and say “all Japanese food entries”. So yeah Friday was a good day for me lololol
    3. If this was two weeks ago I would have said “I want a new layout!” but the redesign is soooo pretty it’s like you read my mind.

  16. Christine says:

    I followed you for a year? Any blog update is a good one haha. Personally, because I am from the States, I would love if you blogged more about Malaysia. I know you spend a lot of time in Japan but I’m sooo interested in what life is like in your home country! Like what foods are good to eat, where are the best places for dates/cheap clothes, etc. And maybe a bit more on you and the kareshi because I do recall you crying about being forever alone haha

    • cheesie says:

      I would try to! 🙂

      Its just that when i’m home in malaysia i normally spend most of the time relaxing or working at home. But thanks for suggestions.

      Yea noted on the last part too lol

  17. Nicole says:

    1. When did you start becoming a reader of this blog?
    I came across your blog through kennysia.com. At that time, you posted Porn theatre in Osaka, which was hilarious & I followed your blog ever since. 🙂 Bu zhi bu jue I have been stalking your blog for almost 4 years already!! 😡

    2. Which is your favorite blog post(s)?
    I love every blog posts on Japan & Cheddie. <3

    3. What would you like to see more this blog or anything you think can be improved?
    I don't really like the new layout. It's not pink enough. Haha! XD And more vlogs would be great!

    Happy Birthday cheeserland.com! ^^

    • cheesie says:

      HAHA that was a classic post lol

      BUT IT IS STILL PINK!!! lol.

  28. Joan says:

    Happy 8 year blogniversary Cheesie!

    1. can’t remember exactly, but i found you through Kenny Sia, who i found through XX… i guess 2009 or so?

    2. like the commenter above, my fav post has got to be yuriko’s cooking. I read it over and over, it’s hilarious. each time i imagine you eating choysum stem pickles politely at each meal, nodding saying it’s good, thinking ‘YAY ITS GETTING LESS FINALLY’ and your face when you saw that it got refilled. HAHAHAHAHAHA

    3. a peek into your make-up bag as i’m always curious as to how or what you use to do your make up, or ‘current 20 clothing items i can’t live without’ type of posts, since it’s related to fashion! Your blog’s great the way it is. write whatever the hell you want!

    • cheesie says:

      1. wow then it might have been even earlier than that!!

      2. HAHA why you remember so vividly!! even more than myself lolol

    Hope in another years your blog going bigger and bigger and you’ll be as famous as XiaXue!!! 🙂

    1. When did you start becoming a reader of this blog?
    – Believe it or not, my first time reading your blog is when you talk about…… having a bikini wax. 😡 LOL. It’s around… End of 2011.. in November if Im not wrong… And from the first time I read, I keep reading your post till now.. Can’t stop… I even read some of your archieve already (can’t read it all yet.. It’s a LOT of post!).

    I actually discover you just in the same time I discover FourFeetNine… I read her blog first, then I came into your blog… Then I came into XiaXue blog.. Day before, I barely know you all guys (just being honest)… and now, your blog, audrey’s blog, and xiaxue blog already become my favorite blogs to read.

    2. Which is your favorite blog post(s)?
    -I really love to read your Japan Post, your Useless Fashion Pic, or your review. But really, reading your post already makes us happy, so you just need to keep blogging! 🙂

    3. What would you like to see more this blog or anything you think can be improved?
    -I just wish you reveal who is your Kareshi….? (Clear picture, story on how you both meet, complete edition. Lol.) I know that is something really private for you… But everytime you mention him, you just made us very very curious about him. 😡 LoL. But if you don’t want to write about him then It’s Okay larr… Just continue to be this Cheesie… Funny, stylish, and full of dedication to keep us entertaint by writing in your blog… Hihihihi… I hope even if you now are very busy, you will still enjoy writing in your blog in the future.. Because that’s what makes me adore you… 🙂

    i’ve been reading your blog since the end of 2009,
    I don’t really have THAT one fave post or a fave category, I nearly love everything what you blog about 🙂 well, blog post which I don’t love are usually product reviews or advertisments about stuff which aren’t available in Europe T_T i hate living here lolol ok it’s not soo bad.
    and super love that you blog so much about Japan since it’s your 2nd home =D

    i’d love to see more blog posts about your personal opinions about different topics, and hope you will blog soon about your kareshi ^.^

  45. 3yin says:

    2. Don’t have a particular favourite post but I love how you love Japan so much and the appreciation that you showed. I also like the way you write and your fashion sense – mode style!
    3. Love your fashion posts!

  46. starry says:

    Happy 8th year anniversary! 😀

    I realised… I have been reading you since 2005. Woah! That’s realy long. Haha. How time flies, and look how far you’ve gone!

    I love your travel posts because, like you, I love to travel. Heading to Japan on the last week of Sept. Hur hur.

    One small suggestion: The new font makes it hard on the eyes. Think you’ll consider changing it?

    Keep writing, keep doing what you enjoy. <3!

    1. I seriously could not remember, I think I have been a fan of your blog since a few years back. I did re-read the previous posts especially the JAPAN posts! They’re so fun to read and I am so envious (for someone who has never been on a plane before)

    2. My favorite blog posts are the travel and daily fashion. You have great style and I love to read all about your experience in a foreign country.

    3. Just keep doing what you’re doing, we love your posts because they’re YOU!

    2. I like almost all your posts leh, how?!

    3. Uhmm.. maybe just increase the font size? Currently it’s a lil bit too small IMHO.

  52. Irene says:

    2) Your kareshi( smirks) and wedding gown pics!! :DDD

  56. Hayley says:

    Happy anniversary Cheesie! I’m so happy for you that this blog has helped you achieve your dreams. I hope we get to meet someday eventually (stupid Tokyo storm!!)

    2. All the Japan ones *^^* (But really because I am such a glutton, all the Japan food ones. 日本料理は最高!
    3. If this was a few weeks back I would have said “I want a new layout!” but you beat me to it. I think you strike a really good balance in your posts already ^_^ So I guess what I’m saying is, what do I want to see more of? Many more years of Cheeserland!

    • Hayley says:

      Haha my first comment didn’t go through so several days later I was like “oh did I not comment yet? Better do that now” and it turns out that my lame jokes are more or less the same so many days apart *^^*

    I LOVE YOUR NEW BLOG LAYOUT!!! Omigosh, I was literally sighing with awe scrolling through your blog! Love it <3

    I've known about your blog a few years ago, but only this year did I really start taking an interest in your blog. I guess me growing up and looking for fresh fashion inspiration is one reason. I adore your mix & match fashion posts.

    I would like to see more of your wedding preparation and collaboration with other local bloggers too! 😀

    With love

  63. alicejane011 says:

  64. neko says:

    More japan stuff.. haha.. you’re good at it.. 😛

  65. Vermillion says:

    1. When did you start becoming a reader of this blog?
    I have no idea but I think I’ve been following you for a few years now. I mainly follow your twitter and facebook feed nowadays 😀 I think maybe I found you from Xiaxue’s blog?

    2. Which is your favorite blog post(s)?
    All your travelling and fashion posts! Your life seems so interesting ^^

    3. What would you like to see more this blog or anything you think can be improved?

  66. カイラ says:

    Hello Cheesie-san!

    I feel honored / super lucky to be included in your special anniversary post. 8 years of cheese, that’s really awesome!!! OMEDETOU GOZAIMASU ^^v I am the girl with the luggage bag hehehehe~

    I will be answering your questions then 😀

    1. When did you start becoming a reader of this blog?
    – I don’t know when but it’s probably because of Xiaxue or I just found you from Tokyo Kawaii TV? Nevertheless, I am happy to accidentally stumble upon this wittingly-written blog! <3

    2. Which is your favorite blog post(s)?
    Daisuki na Nihon~ ^^v I fan-emailed you once about that hehe 😀

    3. What would you like to see more this blog or anything you think can be improved?
    I think it has improved a lot but I didn't really care about the template, etc. Most of your readers visit your blog because of your personality/writing/interesting life/fashion psots! 😀

    Thank you for being so friendly and accommodating. Truth is, I was a bit scared to approach you but for some reason, you are so unlike with other bloggers who have snobbish / scary aura ;_;

    Hope I can bump into you again and I will compose myself better next time. Hehehe. Tokyo misses you already!

  67. Rebecca Kiew says:

    브러크 8주년 축하합니다!!! (Happy 8th year anniversary for your blog!)

    And before I say anything, please do not kill me for using Korean. Attempted to use Japanese but my Japanese is still below the average below average. Haha.

    Ok so answers to the questions…

    1. Had been a reader for about 2 years? WAHHHH I DIDN’T REALISED THAT I READ FOR THAT LONG ALREADY OH MY GODDDDDD. Forgot how I found you but apparently I found you somehow. Haha.

    2. Every of your post, actually! I like the way you are being so positive all the time, even during your #foreveralone period. You never complained that life is tough on you, and you’re always grateful. That is why I like reading your posts. Oh ya and on top of that you are so punny. Hahahha. When I read your post I feel like you’re talking to me face-to-face. Which at times I feel creepy.

    3.Keep it the way you are. Add when you feel like adding and improve the way you feel like improving. I have faith in you and believe that you will not disappoint any of us. =D

    Congrats once more!!! Hopefully by your next anniversary I will be able to write congratulatory message in full Japanese. *fingers crossed* If not then I shall write it in full Korean then hahahahahahahhahahahahhahahahhahahhahaha

  68. Kharnyee says:

    Hi Cheesie. Congratulation on your 8th-blogniversary! I have forgotten when I started in ‘stalking’ your blog. I think it was 1 year ago. I have also forgotten where I found your blog. I like all your blog posts! I read all of them once I found this blog. LOL. I hope you can blog more your life, travel, and I love your outfits post too! And please do more video, I love your voice when you’re speaking in Japanese! BTW, you’re an influential blogger, because of you I’m madly in love with Japan and Japanese language. I hope someday I can go to Japan! I also hope that someday I can meet you in real person! 😀 <3

  69. Luna says:

    1. When did you start becoming a reader of this blog?
    I saw your blog post on “Tragic Experience in a Porn Theatre” via a nuffnang ad! In my mind i was thinking – Wow, what?! There’s even a theatre?? LOL, it was indeed an interesting read, hahaha. I had to stop myself from laughing too loud (it was late then!) and since then I’ve been reading your posts, even the ones in your archives! (The ‘Previous Cheese’ link at the bottom of the page was quite additive, haha)

    2. Which is your favorite blog post(s)?
    I really enjoy reading your travelog and your random ramblings and your fashion posts and.. okay, I think that includes every posts 😡

    3. What would you like to see more this blog or anything you think can be improved?
    Would it be too much if I ask for more detailed description of your travelog? Haha, I really love the photos but I thought it would be awesome if you could write more! 🙂 But I still think that it’s great now too! 🙂

    You have inspired me in many ways and I would like to thank you for that! All the best and congratulations once again! Have a great day ahead 🙂

  70. komomo says:

    hmmm, i think i started reading your blog after i saw you on xiaxue’s hongkong disneyland posts (just started to read her blog then), either that or the taipei airport post i googled up while looking for the hello kitty cafe.

    disney-related posts are my favorite, especially disneysea and duffybear! also cheat-one posts!


    i remember once you replied to my tweet. i was so giddy HAHAHA

  71. Ayami says:

    ブログ 八年記念日 おめでとうございます‼

    I started becoming a reader for your blog maybe beginning of this year. (I wish I knew about it when you just started)

    I love all your blog posts about Japan!
    I was born in the country part of Japan but had to move here to the states when I was little due to my parents career. Ive always wanted to move back to Japan. its been about 15years now..reading all your posts about japan makes me feel so nostalgic. especially the posts about your host family. and it makes me want to go back even more! I strongly agree about sakura being more pink in japan!

    I know you already go to Japan multiple times a year and blog about it but i just can’t get enough of it!
    You are really influential and inspirational Cheesie! 🙂

    Very awesome stuff Cheesie! 🙂

    I still remember meeting you (in real life) for the very first time in 2008. Heh.

    Great work, keep on blogging!

  75. Ashley says:

    Happy 8th year anniversary to cheeserland!

    Thank you for fixing the comment thing!

    1.I’m not sure when I started reading your blog, but I know I found it through XiaXue. It’s probably about 4years ago. Loved the way you write so I kept coming back to read!

    2. Hmmm, I hate all these favourite questions. Hahaha. I can’t choose! I like all your ufod and CheatOne posts! Not a huge huge fan of Japan but I like travelling so any country you travel to and write about is fine for me.

    3. More tutorials! Your style has changed so much so it would be nice if there is a tutorial on your make up style now and the make up you use.

    Anyw, just wanted to say thanks for all the laughter (your puns are hilarious), fashion inspiration and life motivation (The Secret) you have provided us fans through your blog! Here’s to more years of awesome blogging! <3

      1. First read your blog in 2010 I think.
      2. I like your travel blogs. Specially those who happened in Japan. I just moved to Japan with my husband and two daughters and all your posts about Japan have been like a guide for me. Should mention that I’m originally from Iceland 🙂
      3. Just hoping you’ll keep on posting whatever the material is.

  78. Lizziebones says:

    I started reading your blog about a month ago when I saw you on instagram. II even went back and started reading your old posts in order from the beginning of this year. I think you are hilarious and smart and I have even teared up once or twice from reading your posts about Japan and sakura. 🙂 I’m from Atlanta Georgia and love reading about your life and travels on the other side of the globe. More Japan and food please!!!! You are awesome 🙂

  79. Fiona Chan says:

    Congratulations on 8 years blog anniversary! 😀

    1. I started when you joined Malaysian Dream Girl (how long ago was that?!) :O I came here to read your MDG diaries but you stopped posting them T_T and I also started liking your blog, so I started following and reading your posts 😀

    2. -_- no answer lol.

    3. Ahem don’t be so mysterious about your kareshi! But in all seriousness, just keep doing what you’re already doing. I’m always amazed by how fast you update your blog 😀

  80. Nea says:

    This is so cool. I always change blogs, but I will stay to this one forever, it just feels right, and I wanna also blog in many years just like you. 😀
