Doraemon Waku Waku Sky Park Cafe

Continuing from my last post, I will be sharing pictures of my experience of the cafe at the Doraemon Waku Waku Sky Park. I always look forward to eating all the cute and yummy Doraemon food in Japan. Can't wait to go back to Japan soon to eat more cute Doraemon food! =D 

There's actually quite a variety of food to choose from the menu, even Doraemon pizza!

Doraemon Waku Waku Sky Park

Finally blogging about my experience at the Doraemon Waku Waku Sky Park in Hokkaido which is located right inside of the New Chitose airport! I have long dreamed of going to this place ever since I knew it existed. I can't believe I finally made this dream come true. One of my dream goals is to travel to all the Doraemon places in Japan. I have already been to the Doraemon museum in Kawasaki city so my next goal was the Waku Waku Sky Park in Hokkaido. 

If you ever make a trip to Sapporo when you're in Japan, do check out this Doraemon park when you have a few hours to spare at the airport. It is definitely worth a visit if you are a big Doraemon fan like me!

The park is actually quite big and has many attractions and places to visit. A cafe to eat cute and yummy Doraemon themed food, a workshop if you are into making crafts and toys, a library to read all the Doraemon manga, and a gift shop to buy cute Doraemon souvenirs and gifts that is only sold in Hokkaido! 

It cost 800 yen (about $8) for admission into the park where you get to venture in the magical world of Doraemon. The park is open from 10am-6:30pm. I'd recommend catching an early flight to Sapporo if you want to spend a full day at the park. There are also lots of other shops in the New Chitose airport such as the Royce Chocolate World shop which is located right next to the Doraemon Waku Waku Sky Park. 

Getting to the park is super easy. After you have come out from the arrival terminal at the airport, take the escalators up to the 3rd floor and look for and follow signs to Smile Road which you will start seeing a lot of Doraemon and you'll know that are you heading towards the right direction! You can also rent lockers on the lower level at the arrival terminal for 400 yen to store your luggage so you can freely enjoy your time at the park without having to carry your luggage around. 

Spotted this cute Doraemon statue close to the entrance of the park and couldn't resist to take a selfie making the same sticking tongue and one eye wink expression face as him, lol. 

The famous Doraemon brick wall! This is the main entrance to the park. LOVE this brick wall soooo much. The best way to be welcomed to the park! 。^‿^。

Happy 2018 A New Beginning

It has been so long since I last blogged. I don't even know if anyone is still reading this blog except for me. I want to go back to blogging more regularly again but sometimes it's just hard for me to when I have so much to deal with in life. 

I don't want to promise that I would get back to blogging regularly again but I definitely want to blog more than I did in 2017 which I only shamefully have 3 blog posts for the year. I feel so ashamed as a blogger.

2018. A new year. A new beginning. Let's start off with my New Year Resolutions in which I really hope to stand by and do this year. 

My New Year resolutions: Smile more, laugh a little more, love myself a little more. Stress less and stop putting myself and my needs/desire at last. Learn to prioritize putting myself first. It’s not called being selfish, it’s called having self-respect. Because I deserve to be loved, to find happiness and most importantly to treat myself better. No more living my life like I owe my life to someone. My life belongs to no one except me. I live life for myself and not for someone else and I don’t need to live up to the expectations of others. Because there is nothing more important in life than my own great happiness and so I should do more of what makes me happy. 不管別人怎麼說, 我仍然相信我是美麗, 值得一個奇蹟. 我會學習更加善待自己, 愛自己更多一點, 也為幸福好好練習和努力一點. 因為, 我相信我的人生是會更好更美麗. 不要害怕轉變, 因為轉變會讓人變得更堅強.

I also had a little too much fun with this photo app on the last day of the year. Life’s a long and difficult journey so sometimes you just need to let loose and have a little fun. Smile, laugh, cry, be crazy and just be silly. Don’t take yourself too seriously. Just be yourself and no one else or someone else who you pretend to be.

And now on to the non-edited and exaggerated original photos I took. XD

For me, 2017 has been a very tough year and possibly the toughest year in my life so far. I’ve changed jobs 3 times. I have also ventured out of my comfort zone to try new experiences and take on new career opportunities. I have failed and I have also succeeded but I’ve learned life isn’t all about success. My failures have only made me a stronger person and help build the person I am today. It was a year of self growth and personal development for me and I’ve learned so much about myself that I’ve never discovered before. I’m grateful for these challenges I went through in 2017 as they have made me realize my strengths and weaknesses and most importantly to see a side of me I never knew existed. For all these years, I’ve build walls to keep people from knowing the real me. And for a long time I believe this wall protected me, not knowing that it was preventing me from building relationships with others, as well as building a relationship with myself. At times I felt so lost because I didn’t even know who I truly was anymore and when I realized a part of me (who I was once familiar with) has gone and disappeared, it made me feel so lonely and depressed. I wanted to search for her and reunite her back to my life but it felt like such a difficult thing to do. But despite all that, I want to move forward in 2018 with new challenges, new experiences, new dreams and goals. And maybe I don’t need to look for the part of me that’s missing because there’s a better me waiting to be discovered in 2018. I will look forward to meeting her and making 2018 a better and happier year! =)

Note: I coloured my hair blonde again after a very long time. It turned out much more blonde than I have wanted it to be. I wanted a new change for the New Year. One of my coworkers told me I look like Sailor Venus with my blonde hair. LOL! Sailor Venus is actually my favourite sailor soldier and I do think I quite resemble her (in appearance wise) given I have really long hair like her.  It has also been exactly a year since I’ve last taken a selfie. For a moment I don’t even remember how to take a selfie or smile in front of the camera. That’s something I hope to change in the year of 2018.
