17th Aix-La-Chapelle Lolita Meet-Up

Hello my cute mauw-mauws,

on December 14 the 17th Aix-La-Chapelle Lolita Meet-Up took place. It's the last one for this year and traditionally we visited a christmas market. This time we went to the christmas market in Maastricht again after two years. The christmas market in Maastricht is much less than the christmas market in Aachen but it's really beautiful and offers a giant wheel, an ice skate area and, just recently, even a merry-go-round ^___^

You can reach Maastricht via bus in ~65 minutes from Aachen main train station. Spending such a quite long time in a bus in our group made me feel like on my school days back then during a class trip. ^__^

Of course we needed to take a ride with the merry-go-round and it was so much fun ^___^

Mochi and me also couldn't resist the spell ^__~

Thereupon we made our way through the christmas market and before we went to the cafe we took a ride on the giant wheel.

We were so lucky with the weather that day. Of course it was a bit cold, but the sun shined and so we had a beautiful winter day.

lovely Kuraude <3

I'm a bit afraid of heights..
After the exciting ride we strolled through the market and the inner town until we could finally took a seat at the cafe which I arranged for 3.00pm only. There we spent the rest of the day.

I personally really loved the Meet-Up and it was great that we could do such exceptional activities that day.
Thank you all for joining and see you again! xXxXx

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYBODY!!!!

Satsuki - Live at MTC Cologne ~ Squall of Emotions Tour

Hello my cute mauw-mauws,



I really like to tell you about my quite spontaneous visit of Satsuki's concert in Cologne on December, 5th. My sis Skullina arranged short dated two VIP-Tickets for the gig.



Satsuki, Skullina, Sana and me - after the concert you had the chance to take an fuji-instant-photo with Satsuki and Co. at a premium. 

Actually I was not much into Satsuki's music but my sister is a fan for years. At first I should be only her personal taxi but then my sister arranged a second VIP-ticket and I joined the condert. Admission for VIPs was planned for 7:00pm but we could enter the venue with a delay of ~30 minutes. Gosh, it was so cold outside and we could hear Satsuki and his band doing soundchecks already. Inside then, everything needs to go quick: Say "Hi!" to Satsuki & Co., give a gift, take a photo and only a few minutes later the concert already begun. We had barely time and could not enjoy our "VIP"-bonus. Too bad!!!

Skullina is gifted in artistic and she painted this picture of Satsuki especially for the concert and gave it to him as a present:




I dunno what's going on with my arm XD


The MTC is a pretty small venue and so the concert was very intensive. I enjoyed the concert although I knew vaguely only half of the songs.  I was so happy that they performed my favourite song "Romance". *____*
Satsuki, Sana-Sama & Co. all radiated sympathy. Especially Satsuki was very patienced and didn't feared contacts. He even warmed up my sister hand during the lil sign-session after the concert.

For Skullina the concert was even more intense and it made me more than happy to see her that rejoice about the concert. <3

Looking forward to see them again and I recognized that I need to spend more time with Skullina.

Thank you for the great evening!

Luma


is gone. It hurts. We needed to let her go.

It was foreseeable that Luma had not that much time left and when I think about her diseases and our visit's to the vet Im once again impressed - Luma, you were strong and brave!

During the last two months I went all to frequently to the vet with Luma. First she got an abscess, then she had heavy breathing difficulties and metastases had been diagnosed. Addiotionally, she got heart problems but we could treat this for a while with medicine. A while thereafter, I spotted that she got a sort of lump. Because Luma's state of health wasn't that great anymore and the lump wasn't located between the skin layers but seemed to be next to her uterus, we dispense of another surgery. With the time, Luma began to limp with one of her hind paws, but everything was still "okay", she still enjoyed life and was as cute as ever. <3
Almost a week ago then, one of Luma's hind paws was swollen - lymphedema! I got some pain killer and was told to massage the paw. Actually it worked! I was delighted, but Luma felt from day to day more worse. During the last days I even washed her because she had problems doing it by herself. She also denied her medicine.

Yesterday then the time had come. Luma didn't want to eat anymore and seemed to be mostly a bit distant. She seemed to lose pus also. I love her so much - from inside, I knew that I should deliver her from pain but actually no one wants to lose someone/something she/he loves. I asked my mum to have a look at Luma and she confirmed of what I was afraid of: Luma putting down to sleep. Don called the vet and we luckily could go straight to the treatments room. Within 2 or 3 minutes Luma passed away. But in contrast to Carli, she fought. She didn't wanted to sleep at first but then she looked calmly.

Eventhough it was foreseeable, it hurts so much. Actually, I don't want to feel more love for a rat than for an other rat, but Luma was my darling, my favourite. I never had a rat like Luma before, she enjoyed my love care, she was so funny, crazy and twirly - simply irrereplaceable.
LUMA - thank you for everything! 



cutiiiiie
Luma at her 2nd birthday <3

Luma sleep on my arm at the very first evening at my place - she was very special from day one

Luma loved to gnaw!



sleeping time

yam yam yam

cuddly-rat <3

Snapshot: Atishoo! - Luma just sneezed!

Luma was probably the twirliest rat of my gang but on the other hand she was a real sleepyhead

YAAAAWN "I'm sooooo sleepy!"

Luma needed to ewar this special dress so that she couldn't gnaw at her wound anymore. "sadly" she wore that "dress" only for a few minutes back in her cage, I dont exactly know how she put if off still..

<3

Old ill Luma sleeping in my arms. Photo was taken ~24 hours before I decided to let her go. Didn't thought that I had to let her go only the next day..

Luma

Rest in peace!

Usai in Japan 2013 - Suzuka: Japanese Adult Hotel & Suzuka Circuit

Hello my dear mauw-mauws,

Suzuka is probably best known for the Suzuka International Racing Course / Circuit which is the home of the Japanese Formula 1 Grand Prix.

By entering Suzuka we noticed a lot of gas stations and car dealer. Suzuka definitively lives of the car industry. We stayed for one night in the Hotel "Fine Garden". Back then, as we booked our hotels we noticed that "Fine Garden" is an adult only hotel but because we didn't had any other choice for Suzuka we decided to stay there and probably experienced the biggest surprise during our stay in Japan.

It seemed like we were the only guests right now and so the hotel staff gave us a free of charge update and so we got the Super Deluxe Rooms. Well, actually it wasn't a room anymore.. we stayed in a flat. A photo can tell more than thousand words and a video can show you more than thousand photos, so please enjoy:

Don is talking on this video and is introducing the rooms and the special inventory. I think you get a good impression of the flat eventhough you can't understand german. This was actually a LOVE hotel and you may think "ewwww~ yuck! BUT this room was certainly cleanier than an usual hotel room. Everything was purer luxury. We could even order food to our rooms and so it came that I ate the most delicious pizza ever. *___* The staff were really friendly.

In the evening, Don and Mochi discovered a "Don Quijote"-store in which I bought later on a cute Hello Kitty Hoodie and Care Bear Pants! ^__^

Next day, we went to Suzuka Circuit. Round the Circuit is a theme park (Motopia) which offers quite a lot for children but also for motorsport fans.


japanese people are great - this gate spends cold water! It's really refreshing on sticky summer days!

on the terrace of the Suzuka Circuit

The highlight as such was to drive at the famous circuit by yourself with a go-kart. It was so much fun although I didn't drive by myself. It was lovely, seeing how much fun Don and Mochi had. ^__^


Mochi and Kuraude were right behind us and Kuraude shooted our round

Thereafter we took a ride with the giant wheel and OH MY GOSH! this giant wheel got as only thing we entered during our whole stay in japan NO air conditioner. It was hotter than a sauna. We were all relieved as we could finally leave the giant wheel again and go outside because there it were "only" 38 degrees. Anyways, it was once again a really sticky day back then eventhough it looks so cloudy and dull on the photos....

Quarter of a century party

Hello my sweet mauw-mauws,

this year I surrounded the sun for the twentiefifth's time and therefore I invited my besties to a lil party.  Theme of the party was "Hero of your childhood" and everyone should show his favourite. Just before the party took place I was still quite unsure what I should wear and in the end I decided to wear my old Charmander Cosplay! ^___^
The celebration took place in the club house of my parents garden plot and we decorated the room very girly. While decorating the room and trying to get the telly on we'd borrowed from my parents we forgot about time and our first guests already arrived at our place (sorry for kept you waiting a few minutes!).  Around 2:00pm then the remainder arrived and the celebration could start!

my mum made this delicious cake for us

time for a group photo!

yummy Muffins from my mum

Hello Kitty Cake from my sis

After mealtime my friends gave their presents to me. I love unboxing presents *_*

a present tree from Yoko & Chopper 

this cute Amaura is one of the gifts from PrincessTenko

my nephew is pretty nosy

One of the many presents from my parents: lil Pinkie Pie

from Kuraude I received among others this two Sailor V Manga

Skullina and Seprentis gave among others this Hello Kitty 3DS case to me

from Mochi I got among others Final Fantasy Theatrhythm Curtain Call

The rest of the day we spent chatting, playing Wii and eating. I hope my friends enjoyed the day as much as I did. It was greating having my besties all around at the same time, sadly this happens far to rarely.

plushie army!

 Don already gave his presents for me at my actual birthday and exceeded once again my expectations. He gave  a skirt and a big bag of Baby, the stars shine bright's Collection Douce Chocolatier series to me *______*



I really can't wait to wear my new pieces to a Lolita Meet-Up hopefully very soon! ^______^
To be honest I can't believe that I already turned 25 years old - actually I still feel like a teeny and quite inexpierenced eventhough I live a grown up life, going to work, doing my purchases and the househeold, haha~. :D

I am such a lucky person - I received so many presents to my birthday this year that it was really difficult to get everything in one single photo, but here it is:


Thank you all for the great day and (of course also) for the presents XxXxX Love you all ~ <3 Hope to celebrate my "half century"-party with you also! ^_^

16th Aix-La-Chapelle Lolita Meet-Up

Hello my dear mauw-mauws,

somehow I was quite excited in beforehand for the 16th Aix-La-Chapelle Lolita Meet-Up. I guess I was just happy that the day of the meetin had finally come. ^__^ This time we were even lucky with the weather and had a picnic and a lil photo session on Aachen's Lousberg.

H0wl, Schneeregen, Buschwindroeschen, Kirby, me, Mero-Chi, Kuraude and PrincessTenko

 While Don took photos of us we caught the attention of a just married couple who asked us to take a few photos together with them. The bride looked so beautiful and her lil shyness made her even more lovely.


I weared my Mary in the skied one piece from Baby, the stars shine bright finally again and teamed it with my cardigan from DreamV.


In general we chatted a lot but also kid around pretty much. I just love the looseness of my local lolita girls. <3

As time went by it began to get a bit colder and so it was pretty matching that I made a reservation at Kanpai Sushi for already 4:00pm. Kanpai Sushi is a japanese styled Sushi restaurant which has been opened only a few weeks ago in Aachen. Kuraude already stayed there and warmly recommended it.

waiting for the sushi to come..

The staff was really friendly and my sushi was very delicious, especially the Inari Nigiri, those Nigiri really remind me of the ones I'd ate in Japan. I will for sure visit Kanpai Sushi again. <3

It was a lovely and pleasent meet-up and Im looking once again forward to the next one. ^O^
