So you got to go on your Japan pilgrimage, went around Akihabara and shopped to your hearts content or as your savings allows you to. But you still got some time left and don’t know what to do. Then why not drift on over to the Pop Life Department.m’s Shop. In a nut shell, it’s a sex shop or more appropriateley, a “sex mall”. But it’s not to be compared with Singapore’s 4 floors of, um, exotics.
Curious? Let Attack of the Show give you a guided tour with Alex Sim-Wise.
UPDATE: Now with JOOTOOB video!!!
Tokyo Pron Shopping with Alex Sim-Wise.
Back when I was a kid, I used to hate going to Mong Kok (望角). It was too noisy, and too smelly, too crowded. Throw in a less than memorable experience by mom during those days and you’ve got the perfect formula for a phobia. I was 5 years old.
Who would’ve thought that 25 years later, it was these very things that I grew up detesting the most as about it would be the very things that I come to love about the place. Overwhelming noise of the modern city full of life, the smell of cultural cross roads where old and new traditions meet, and the crowd of people from all walks of life converge with nary a worry about where they stand in life.

Now as I’ve mentioned, Dollism Plus was held July 17, 2011. The night before, HK Twitter buddy @TonyBSD set up a get together with the Singaporean Dollism+ delegates.

And what better way than to do the meet up at a maid cafe. As far as I could gather, they had to move the venue the larger of the 2 maid cafes in Mong Kok as we were quite a sizable group.

With the 6th Dollism Plus wrapped up, here are some quick snaps and a few quips from what has transpired after another successful Hong Kong doll gathering. Soon as I sort what little photos I managed to snap, Mikuru will be making a full report of the event as well as introduce someone to you my humble readers.
•Mikuru’s homecoming as it was around this same time, 2 Solar cycles ago that when I picked her up from JR Toys. It was a time long before I knew the magnificent HK doll group, Ms. N and Dollfie World.
•Maid Cafe’s are more queer and fun than what I had imagined and experienced back home. Continue reading

Whenever I fly over to Hong Kong, one of the things I most look forward to is the food. And while there are places that certainly demand a good penny for a meal, if one knows where to go, a couple of bucks, HK$50 to be exact can take you a long way. A new show on goyeah.com will take you on an epicurean’s tour of Hong Kong. Showing you places to grab a grub from a quick bite to a filling dinner.

Whenever myself or the family wants some time off or just wants to get away from the city, our first choice for a quick destination out of town is Tagaytay. It’s about an hour and half’s drive from the city with good grub all around and nice scenery to boot.
