Salutations \o/ we hope everyone is enjoying their pink, petal-filled spring (◕▿◕✿) This season makes me feel like I'm a shoujo manga character (unfortunately there are no ikemen around me so I am most likely student C in a story where someone else is the main character ;w;) We'd like to thank everyone for braving the cold and coming to our Hanami at Shinjuku Gyoen last weekend!!

If you missed this event, don't worry because there'll be lots more exciting ones coming up!! Until then,…

Happy 2019 everyone~ (^▽^) We just had our annual winter trip, the first event of the year! We went on a 2 day 1 night trip to Hakone this time round~ Here's the itinerary for those who missed it:   The view from our train~             We had 中華 for breakfast at a little restaurant on the way to the cable cars! Totally regret not getting the mapo ramen...   There was lots of squealing on the cable cars because half of us were busy taking videos and pictures and the rest were afraid of heights but the journey was thankfully really smooth for the most part. We even got an entire cable car to ourselves on the way down!        These pictures don't…
