|04:52 pm - SHOPPING!!|
It's the weekend again :D
Today I only had half a day of training and tomorrow (Sunday) I get the whole day off, then Monday and Tuesday is training and Wednesday I finally get to go to my school in Nagasaki and meet the other teachers!! I can't believe it's already been a week since I've arrived in Japan!
Today was really exciting actually, something totally unexpected happened. The trainer took the other girl to see her school today because her school is actually in Fukuoka here and so I tagged along. When we got to the building her school is in I saw a sign that made my eyes pop wide open and my mouth drop. QUATRE REVES aka Takarazuka shop. I had NO idea there was a Quatre Reves in Fukuoka, good grief the pure amount of STUFF in there was...insane *O* It was like Zuka heaven~ I wanted to buy so many things, but I had to keep reminding myself I'm suppose to save money and that I already have way too much stuff, so I just bought 1 DVD and grabbed a few chirashii (I think that's what they're called, the posters they have for shows). My fellow trainee wandered around the shop as I floated around on my little dream cloud, so during lunch (yummy tempura) I told her a bit about the Takarazuka Revue. So~ Here's my loot :D
I bought the DVD for Chang'an Full of Dancing Flowers, I had wanted to see this show since I first saw a small clip on youtube. It's set during the Tang Dynasty in China and depicts the story of Tang Taizong and his most favourite concubine, Yang Yuhuan, also said to be one of the four most beautiful women in Chinese history. Anyone know if there's a Quatre Reves in Nagasaki? I'm half hoping for yes and half hoping for no since I would love to buy more Zuka pretties yet I really, really, really need to save money OTL
Nope, no QR's in Nagasaki, unfortunately! Here's where all the QR locations are
. Fukuoka, Nagoya, Osaka (Umeda), Takarazuka (in the theater) and two in Tokyo (one in the theater and one in the Chanter building across the street)
Whew, my wallet is sighing in relief XD
All the more reason to come up to Tokyo and see me!!! Or send me a list and the next time I'm there (nearly every weekend >____>) I can see what I can do for ya. Glad you're enjoying yourself so far.
Haha, I'm scared to go to Tokyo now, even in Fukuoka there's so much stuff I want, just imagining myself in Tokyo....I'll need another suitcase to put all the stuff I'd buy XDD
How are things going with you?

Nicee... Let the wallet emptying hardcore version begin! =P
Wallet can't be emptyyyy XD
Reminds me when I used one of the only 2 free days I had in Japan to go to Takarazuka. The QR in the theatre was killing me, since I knew that I can buy my dreamy Ernest in Love DVD with Sena and Kiriyan and the AQUA5 CD staring at me provocatively and I am pretty much done for (>.<). If I had more money I would have so loved to clear half the shelves there.
