Hehe, almost! When you have a zilch chance to see BYJ, anything remotely related to him is the next best thing, right? So here it goes ....
A few days ago when I was walking around Shinjuku station, I spotted this BYJ painting in a fast food counter. Well actually I was lost in this underground maze and didn't know where I was heading. As much as I wanted to ask about its origin and story, I don't think the teenage server at the counter is the owner of this painting. So I just snapped a picture. I think the chance of me finding this place again is quite slim, it's called Mother's Crepes?
See, I am still such an amateur at this blogging thingy. I tried to take a closeup shot but was too embarassed to walk in, so I just post the actual picture of HRH in that painting. Ohhh ..... so handsome @@
Now, this one I have never heard about .... Cloudnine is kind enough to take me and another sister to this cafe that HRH went during his first trip to Japan. Lotus is a very small and casual cafe located in the back streets of trendy Omotesando/Harajuku area. You can have a relaxing time enjoying a coffee while flipping through your favourite design books and magazines here.
HRH sat in this secluded corner table in the basement floor. The backdrop is a huge lit-up Paris street scene, as if you are sitting at an outdoor cafe. The adjacent walls are painted this plum rose colour. Somehow I can't picture HRH in this type of establishment - too local, maybe?
Hehe, cloudnine said HRH has a sweettooth and he had 3 kinds of cakes! Of course, we ordered all 3 to try - milk tea chiffon cake, cheesecake and the Mango mousse cake.
Don't worry, the portion is actually quite small. We chat away about HRH and gobbled them up in no time! And we still had room in our tummies for sushi dinner right after, hahaha! Thank you to the other sister for these pictures. It was an enjoyable and relaxing BYJ outing, thanks cloudnine for taking us :)
