Firu ♥ Visya: Make-Believe Japan

Is it totally lame to still celebrate - even with just tiny squeals in your heart - your monthversaries when you've gone way past 2 years already? Is it totally lame to celebrate monthversaries at all? Haha, to hell with that. I am putting on a party hat and dancing in the moonlight because today is Firu's and my 33rd monthversary! Yaay! (In case you're too lazy to count, that means we've been together for 2 years 9 months). Though we're not together RIGHT NOW, I have yet a date story I haven't shared of when we were together two weeks ago. This day may also be called the day we went broke. All my life, I've always wanted to go to Japan. Since that has yet to come true, I have to settle with the Japanese quarter in Düsseldorf. One day, we went there to hang out at Café Relax and enjoy Japanese delicacies. We both ordered Matcha Latte and Curry Rice - croquette for Firu and chicken teriyaki for me. As for desserts, I had the Matcha Chiffon Cake while Firu enjoyed the Strawberry Berry Cake. He enjoyed it so much that he wanted to make it at home - which I doubt he can do. Afterwards, we also bought the takoyaki and ramune I wanted to buy the other day and raided a bookstore. We saw many Japanese and I was so awed by how pretty the girls look. They always look so cute!

Finally, the one post I have been dying to do! This dress was bought a long time ago - in January. But I wanted to wait for the perfect moment to wear it on the blog. I haven't even worn it until I came to visit Firu this time. This was the most perfect dress I have ever laid eyes on. First off, the cut is just my favourite, what with the dainty skirt and all. The semi-backless detail also attracts my eyes. But what got me totally hooked was the pattern on it. It was like wearing a painting on your body, oil paint-like and floral too! Perfect for spring, no? When it's gotten a little warmer, I'd like to wear this dress bare and show you all. By the way, the weather was playing with me that day. When we took off, it was damn cold so I borrowed Firu's cardigan but later on, it got warmer and warmer and I ended up sweating instead. Rawr! Make up your mind, weather! But that might mean that spring is finally taking over. About time now.
