Teach Me How To Dougie

Ok! Let’s take a break from all my Philippine adventures and get back to reality. There’s still a lot of photos awaiting to be shared and I hope you bear with me as I prove to you that the new slogan of the Department of Tourism is 100% true- IT’S MORE FUN IN THE PHILIPPINES. Hahaha!!!

Somehow, it feels great to be back in Tokyo and the winter cold. This season is a good reason to put anything on you and still look stylish somehow. I just got this ridiculous hat during my trip in the Philippines which is a good armor for my head for low temperature days. I wonder why some Filipinos would want to wear this doggie hat knowing how blazing the temperatures can get there.

Because it has been a week since I came back to Tokyo and I haven’t gone out of the house since then (aside from going to work of course), I decided to put on anything that I could find hanging around my room and went to Harajuku. Knowing that a lot of people are wearing much more attention-getter stuff there, I thought that my doggie hat would only be wallflower. Apparently, I was wrong. I got a number of judgmental stares plus this guy who passed by me and whispered, “オカミさんだ” (“It’s Mr. Wolf”) to his friends. It was loud enough for me to give him a stare that said, “I heard that, dick head.”

I also did some instinctive shopping and spent some time reading Haruki Murakami’s “Norwegian Wood” which I’ve been reading for 6 months but hadn’t finished yet then. It was fun reading a book about love, adolescence, casual sex and leaving the past behind while wearing a funny hat.
