Birthdays, Family, Uncategorized BIRTHDAY PRESENTS FROM JAPAN 4 November 2009

So Mum and Dad’s 1st birthday present for me was flying into Shanghai.. our first time together here as a family! It’s been a ton of fun over the past week.. exploring Shanghai – which basically means eating our way around Shanghai 😉 Their 2nd birthday present was a whole bunch of Japanese snacks and chocolates.. because they’re my favourite 🙂 And because they were in Japan for a week before coming to Shanghai. And their 3rd birthday present was given to me on the day of my birthday itself:


JAPANESE stuff!!! I totally love Japan-made goods, they’re always superior

A beautiful pendant covered in gold leaf

I love the feel of it, it’s so ultra smooth and sleek 🙂

A pic of it on me (the chain’s actually longer, I just pulled it back to make it shorter)

A Japanese hair claw! I wanted to get one in Shanghai but it was too expensive,
so very happy I have one now 🙂

Looks nice clipped over a ponytail



I love ’em! Thanks Mum and Dad 😀

    I like the blazer that you’re wearing with the gold necklace.

      It’s an Alannah Hill piece.. and has bits of shimmer/glitter on the scalloped ends at the bottom – really nice, unfortunately I didn’t capture it in the pic!

    Tom asks if it’s a cookie. “No it’s a pendant!” … “Yes but is it a cookie?”
