Hello folks!!! First of all, I would like to apologise for not updating my blog. I've been away, and this dimension has been quiet for more than a week or so, I guess? But don't worry, I'm back from Tokyo, which means there will be a lot of exciting posts coming your way!!
For those who haven't already known, I traveled to Tokyo with my mum and aunt for 9 days (1st of March-9th of March). I actually visited Tokyo last May, which was pretty close to my recent trip lolol. I've always wanted to revisit Tokyo after my first trip because Tokyo really has A LOT to offer. Since I'm on a 3-month-long semester break, what reason is there to not travel to my favourite country once again?!
I've started planning for this trip since early February. I've done researches on where to go, where/what to eat, and where/what to shop! So I'm going to share them with all of you!!
In the previous trip, I've visited pretty much all of the tourist spots, such as Odaiba, Sensoji temple, Ueno, etc. So this time around, I wanted to spend more time on exploring places that I love, a prominent example being Harajuku. Harajuku is my ultimate favourite in Tokyo, and I'll tell you why in my upcoming blog posts!
Ok...honestly, I have no idea where to start blogging, but I guess I will first share with you guys about our stay in Keio Plaza Hotel!
WHERE IS KEIO PLAZA HOTEL?
Shinjuku! Located in a very strategic location, Keio Plaza Hotel is surrounded by lots of restaurants, cafes, drugstores and most importantly, the subway station. In Tokyo, the trains are your friend. You will rely on the trains a lot to travel around.

YES! Opened on November 1st 2014, Hello Kitty Rooms in Keio Plaza Hotel calls out to Hello Kitty fans all around the world! The Keio Plaza Hotel (Shinjuku branch) houses a total of 8 Hello Kitty rooms: 4 rooms in either the "KITTY TOWN" theme or "PRINCESS KITTY" theme. The Hello Kitty Rooms are 40.8 sqm/439.1 sqft large per room (which is pretty damn spacious and comfortable!)
I stayed in the KITTY TOWN room during my trip, but Keiko-san from Keio Plaza Hotel gave me the opportunity to visit the PRINCESS KITTY room too! For me, I think the KITTY TOWN room is more colourful and cheerful with a touch of pop-art while the PRINCESS KITTY room is romantic, calming and dainty! Which one would you prefer?
