Wishful Thinking


I wish I were Japanese. All my closest friends can attest to this statement. Sigh.

I'll never be Japanese. But good news, I work in the international district of Seattle. Even better news, I work a block away from Uwajimia, the Asian grocery and gift store. I LOVE IT SO MUCH.

I wandered over there after work today and here's what I walked away with:

A Year in Japan by Kate T. Williamson
I've been wanting this book for so long


Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
I love his book 'The Wind Up Bird Chronicles'


Instant Immersion Japanese
We'll see if this works...


2 FRUiTS Magazines
I love this magazine. Japanese Street Style.

Oh I love Murakami- good call!

I love Asian fashion too, I think we can be Asian at heart, can't we?
