Re-Ment ♥ - It's No Secret

Re-ment (Reform The Entertainment) is a Japanese company that manufactures Puchi Petites -- scaled miniatures of everyday items. If you're into dolls, Re-ment miniature replicas would be a great addition to your dolly's world:

Speaking of dolls, I saw a woman carrying a Volks Super Dollfie (a 1:6 scale ball-jointed doll) in her arms at a bookstore the other day. She treated it like it was her baby, talking and fussing over it. It was... weird. But even if dolls aren't your thing, there's no reason why you can't appreciate the realistic-looking collectibles:

Rement products are not expensive, most selling at 200-400 yen (around USD3), but they are sold in a series of mystery boxes ala trading cards so you may need to buy a few boxes from the same series before you could get the item you want (though it is possible to buy single unboxed items at a higher price). I didn't know this prior to my trip to Tokyo so when I insisted to a salesgirl there that I wanted item no. 9 on the box she was all "Secret! Secret! All SECRET!!!"

Mr Moffles

What's a moffle maker? Mochi (or muah chee) is glutinous rice pounded to a paste and formed into shapes. A moffle is a mochi waffle. A moffle maker makes moffles.

It's Always Greener

I know for a fact that I enjoy green tea neat as a drink but don't really fancy having it in cakes or biscuits, but somehow, I am yearning for these wonderful looking goods from Daisan(jp):

My theory is if you put Japanese characters around large, bright photos of a product , it will confuse your brain into thinking that it looks and tastes more delicious than anything you've ever tried before.

Dreamy Desserts

I will blissfully believe that something bought from a convenience store can look like this:

To be honest, the actual products - panna cotta, green tea and latte pudding - from here(jp) look quite good too. Mmmm...

How Now Moo! Cow?

Moo! wallpaper and picnicware from Minimoderns by Absolute Zero Degrees.


Something Cold

Despite nursing a cold, I'm craving for something sweet, cold and preferably healthy. A frozen yogurt sounds just about right. Like this Plaisir de Yoghourt Banana sorbet from Movenpick. *sniffle*
