All you have to do is believe in me.
There is this song called Believe in Me by Sing It Loud. It's a rather old song, but it makes me feel nostalgic in a good way. September is an odd month for me. It's like a Thursday. I know my birthday is coming up (in October) and that I'll be in Tokyo but there's like a 30-day wait. I also have bittersweet memories of this month. September is a month in which I was constantly being forced to ask myself, "Where do I go from here?" So now that I'm at a better place in my life, I still ask the same questions. Time, luckily, changes. But I still reflect every now and then. I feel like it's the best that I can do. As of the moment, I've been taking care of myself well.
Going to this cafe was a turning point for me. It was a rather hot Summer day, and we went to a different exit as opposed to the normal Yamanote line exit (near Lumine) so I got lost. We walked for a long time, and I was checking out MAPS on my iPhone and I couldn't figure out where it was. I was so embarrassed because I didn't want my Mom to tire out. We already walked a long way and it was raining.
But my Mom, as kind as she usually is, she pushed me on. She told me to chill out and check again. My Nihongo isn't as good as I want it to be. So at times, it's rather difficult for me. There are so many times that I'm so close to my goal but then I regress. I get scared and become unsure. So I take a step back even though victory is so near. There are so many things in life that have caused me pain, so I have this heavy sensitivity. When I feel something go wrong, I either micro manage and fix everything right away or just drop it completely.
I haven't completely erased all the bad memories in my head. So it's a bit scary for me at times because I get flashbacks. But I have to move forward at all cost. I think after several seasons of stupidity, I've somehow graduated from those things.
I apologize for the weird colours on the succeeding images. The lighting is rather reddish at the cafe, but here we go!
I ordered 2 drinks: MooNs' SUMMER MERMAID and THRIVE's Needle No. 6.
Please listen to the songs! They are amazing and fun!
As this was a long time ago, I no longer remember what they tasted like, haha!
Lastly, my Mom and I ordered one dessert: Kitakore's Mysterious Kiss.
I couldn't get THRIVE's meal because they had selected date availability!
It was such a small dessert with plenty of components. I'd justify it, haha! But over-all, it's a major pass. Then again, that's not really why we go to cafes, right? There was a cheesecake, an oreo cookie and a chocolate cake.
I sorta regretted this cafe mostly because I only bought a few acrylic charms. Just for myself and the customers! They don't allow purchasing more. ;;;; Possibly because of the space and 30 minute time allotment for every slot.
Thank you for reading!
