Wow, 2017 has been a blast. There has been lows but massive highs. Definitely, this year has been much better than the prior year. I am amazed at how much HC has grown as well as how I've become better as a person. It's been humbling, to say the least. There are days when my experiences have proven short and when I feel low. However, whenever I feel that way, I constantly remind myself that I've only started and that there are people who love and support me. On most days, I think of how much of a work in progress I am (as well as HC). I feel that it's important to know one's place in this world and how we know very little of what the world has to offer. It's in that aspect that I am humbled.
No matter what happens, I want to continuously become teachable. I feel that once you think you know everything, that's when your life ends. Growth only comes to those are willing to learn and explore.
In any case, I've rambled on. I always feel the need to let people know how I feel, especially as a lot of people ask about what's going on with me. HC is a store. However, people do treat me as their sister and friend so
I don't mind indulging others as I'm pretty much an open book even in real life. I'm the kind of person that can't hide their emotions, like, if I'm annoyed, you only need to look at my face to see it. With that said though, I can easily say that not much affects me. I've grown stronger this year emotionally which is something you need... whether you're in the medical or business field, life in general.
... so last July? August? When was this again?
Yes, friends, I no longer remember. I'd look back at my iPhone for the date but it's in my room charging. *Sweats*
Let me try again...
So, friends, at some point this year, I went to the My Hero Academia / Boku no Hero Academia x Collabo Honpo Chara Bomb Cafe!!!
//takes a deep breath
Now, I didn't know a single thing about this cafe. It was my first time (yay for you, new content!)! All I knew was the location.
You see, I live at Ningyocho which is 3 stops away from Akihabara. So...
I guess you can gag me up in the Philippines, throw me in Akihabara and I can definitely find my way! Even in the dark! I guarantee that 100%! [UNLESS I HAD AMNESIA LOL!]
Now, I'm still in the process of watching BNHA!
Lately, a girl's gotta have her otome games, ya feel?
However, this cafe has a cosy atmosphere that's very welcoming. The lower floor is for the merch area and the kitchen. The second floor is where the tables for customers are located.
Here are photographs from the cafe:
This art was created specifically for the cafe so I'm very thankful! I love it when cafes do that especially because the food here at themed cafes aren't the cheapest. It just goes to show that they're going the extra mile for us, you feel me?
Chara Bomb = Bakudan Yaki (aka insanely large Takoyakis), usually, you only get 1 piece which is probably equivalent to 4-6 pieces. I've had a lot of these in my years of travel in Japan. It's always just so good and I'm always up for good food! When you purchase them right off the grill, nothing tastes as delicious! You take a bite into the hot steaming bakudan yaki and it's just so delicious. It warms you up! Some people like coffee, I like Bakudan Yaki especially in Ikebukuro. (THEY TOOK OFF THE BENCH BESIDE IT THOUGH LIKE WHYYYYY HOW DO YOU EXPECT ME TO EAT WHILE WALKING WITH SEVERAL SHOPPING BAGS?!) But I digress.
What's special about this Bakudan Yaki is that they're designed to mimic the character designs. I greatly appreciate them! For both of the takoyakis though, they're pretty much the same inside. No difference at all. Plus, they're marked up to a high degree~ Probably twice the cost so I just want y'all to understand that, haha! (Which is normal for most cafes, really, let's not even think otherwise. XD) We also ordered soup and a drink!
Photographs of the lower floor!
2017 is ending, and I'm supremely grateful for each and every one of you. Thank you for helping me achieve my goals and dreams.
To more cafes and adventures! To God be the glory!
