Remember the Alpaca Wind Up Toy that I badly wanted to bring home from the Blythecon? Turns out that they are being sold at eBay! I decided to get one and the mailman (who always smiles with his golden tooth ) delivered it today, woohoo.
I fluffed the alpaca up a little before presenting her to Catootje. She was so not impressed with the new critter and got back to sunning (working on her tan…).
The Butterfly Bush is quite popular these days. In fact bees and butterflies have been munching on it so much, that there are barely any flowers left after just three weeks.
Hop over to my Instagram for a video of the Alpaca in action. I’ve purchased mine from this seller for $19. I’m not a 100% sure if this is the original Iwaya Alpaca, since those look more ‘wooly’ on pictures, but it’s very soft and works well so I’m happy with it ^_^

In Japan you can currently buy Chara-Cre!, which are crêpes combined with Sanrio characters. Sort of like heaven on earth. This is a concept from Marion Crepes – a crêpe stand on Takeshita-dori, Harajuku. All the selected characters have something to do with food, so I think it’s an excellent choice.
This adorable Kirimi-Chan crêpe is somewhat healthy, with lettuce, smoked salmon, fish paste (for Kamaboko-Chan) and ham. Look at Kirimi-Chan! I think you could quite easily make him yourself, by using a piece of smoked salmon and some cut-out nori.
The Pum Pum Purin crêpe, topped with a mini custard pudding, chocolate cookie and chocolate, is great for people with a sweet tooth!
This family of egg crêpes are not depressed, they are just lazy. Gudetama came second to Kirimi-Chan in the Sanrio Character Contest. He’s unmotivated and basically just lays around all day, with no energy to properly finish sentences.
The Chara-Cre beach house, including hot dog.
You can purchase the cute character crepes for ¥600 at Umi no Ie (Beach House) 2-20-29, Katase Kaigan, Fujisawa until 31 August 2014.
They’re open from 8:00am ~ 8:00pm and directions are available on the Chara-Cre website.
Tokyo2Seoul has good directions to the regular Marion Crepes stand. I’m feeling hungry now.
