on last thursday was Kuraudes birthday. ^___^ <3 HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! >^o^>
Therefore I invited her to stroll at the "Japan-Meile" in Düsseldorf.
Our first and main aim for today was the OCS Japan Store. The OCS Japan Store is closing at the end of March which is really sad. They offered a wide range of japanese products like magazines (Fashion magazines like Kera, Gothic&Lolita Bible), Hello Kitty and Rilakkuma goods, japanese Manga and educational material, foods and drinks and a lot of miscellaneous merchandise (Final Fantasy, Death Note etc.). But I guess the OCS was probably best known and famous for their two Purikura automats. Actually no one really knows WHY they had to close and I didn't felt like asking the staff for their reasons. We just wished them the very best for the future. So well, Kuraude and I took the chance to make for the very last time some Puris their:
|my favourite one!|
|Just married XD|
(Unfortunately my scanner had some problems with scanning so I had to photograph some of the puris - sorry for the bad quality =( )
I was really surprised that the OCS was that empty. I expected much more people to be there because almost everyone knew that they will close soon. Well, good for us so we didn't had to wait long for making Puris. The OCS Japan Store had an 50% discount that day - so I simply had to buy some stuff.
I bought some mini bento boxes for only 3,00€, a purple Daruma for only 2,00€, a pink Maneki Neko for 3,00€ and Hello Kitty candy for 0,50€. ^___^6
Afterwards we went to several other stores and enjoyed the midday in Düsseldorf.
Because the weather wasn't that great we decided to drive back home (where we had some funny "chaser" on the motorway) and we watched "Kamikaze Girls". I really love that movie and Kuraude also loved it.
Kuraude looked so pretty - a shame that the weather was like sh** and very cold so we couldn't took any great photos in Düsseldorf.
Yesterday then, Kuraude celebrated her birthday and invited us first to the Cuperella Cafe and afterwards we went to her flat to give presents to her. During our stay in the Cuperella we were only four people, her two other friends came later in the evening. Kuraude instructed us to dress ourselves up for the Cuperella:
|Kuraude weared her favourite JSK!|
|and I (looking pretty weird but it's the only photo I got XD)|
Around 6pm we went to Kuraudes flat and her other friends also finally joined us. Sadly I do not have any more photos of the evening yet but Kuraude has posted them now on her own blog (Puccahafte Welt von Kuraude - B-Day Marathon).
After we had some pizza and "Schoko Lava" as dessert we gave Kuraude her presents.
We all gave to Kuraude as main-gift a new metallic-red Nintendo 3DS, the latest Professor Layton Game (Professor Layton and the miracle mask) and a 15€ Nintendo eShop Card.
