valentine's, diet & sickness

Happy belated Valentine's Day everyone!

I happened to get invited for that day actually & thought: Well, why not go if I don't have any plans.
I've really looked tired for the past days since I arrived in Japan though and I start thinking I should eat more. But strangely I'm not particularly hungry for anything since I arrived in here ( ; ; )
Even though I looked tired, I had a good evening and the food was great, especially the dessert.

me & my friend, the dessert <3

still looking tired, haha ; ;
On the 15th, I've been meeting up with a friend that I got to know online and we spend our time around Shibuya and Shinjuku. While in Shibuya, I decided to finally brace up and try a pair of long d.i.a. pants - what happened? They fitted. I was so unsure and told the stuff that they look so small but she said that they are really stretchy and that if I take of my stockings, I would surely fit into them. Ah, I really didn't expect that. Even length-wise, they were perfect and really comfortable! I was so surprised. I still decided to wait before I buy them... Since I already have many dark-coloured jeans, maybe I will go for a light coloured pair. Besides, they are still about 13,000yen which is an awful lot of money.
Besides, I also tried on this pair of Ma*rs pants but I think I'll rather go for d.i.a.~

So after 'window shopping', my friend and I headed to Shinjuku and I felt a weird kind of hunger mixed with nausea (I often get nauseous though, especially when I am really hungry and don't eat in the morning. I know, not exactly healthy...). I decided to eat something at Café Aya in Shinjuku since the mentaiko spaghetti was below 400yen! I was okay for a bit but still got hungry later on, so I ate an onigiri. Later I drank some wine, too and this is when it started. I felt really nauseous. I've been living with nausea since I take the birth control and can handle it by now but how I felt then was just horrible. I decided to eat a bit more, I still didn't feel full, but after a while I couldn't take it anymore and started throwing up. Even when I just drank water, I threw it all up. I felt terrible until I think 8 am in the morning, when I could finally sleep without throwing all up.

For now I'll be trying to eat healthy and I will also be cutting meat I think. I am not sure if this sickness was caused by my badly organized diet or by the steak I ate on the 14th. It was medium and slightly raw in the middle, and a friend recently had problems too, after eating meat. I've heard that last year there was quite some problems with high caesium levels in meat, but I am still not sure if that could be the reason. It annoys me that you can never find out the real reason after all!

Did anyone else have similar problems while being in Japan? Even just slight nausea or anything?


  1. Happy V day to you! Umm.. I never been to Japan so I don't know...

    1. Comes really late but thanks! haha
      Hope you get to check out Japan sometime.

  2. mhh.. I dont eat meat so I havnt had this problem o: I just ate chickennuggets at Mcdonalds but I didnt feel nauseous.

    But please stay onto the d.i.a pants...I dont like these kind of Ma*rs trousers. The shorts are okay but those trousers...meee.

    Hope your feeling better <3

    1. I'm sure I ate meat in Japan in summer but it was fine so this is weird.
      Haha, I wasn't particularly thinking of going for the Ma*rs pants but I actually like that style, it's very different from other pants~

      Thank you! <3

  3. waaa ;.; You both look so cute >.< I wanna bite you girls *bites*
    Well I never have been in Japan before so... Sorry mate ;.; I can´t help either;.;

    kiss kiss

    1. Hey~ Thanks! I think I look rather worn out and sick, but Purikura all make it up haha. Thanks for checking out my blog, too!

  4. aw and I forgot to say: I hope you get better soon;.;

  5. It's so nice to hear your back in Tokyo, where you belong!! But at the same time I'm sorry you got so sick. Are you better now? My roommate when I was there last time had something exactly like this happen to her when she ate a steak, though, and it was from a super swank place in Roppongi. So maybe it just wasn't cooked enough. :(

    You look so cute, though! I really love your style and I'm so envious you can fit into d.i.a.! Sounds like a definite must get, that. <3

    1. Thank you! Haha, I don't know if I really belong here but... yeah, thanks for saying that. It's weird, I think I had exactly the same thing! First I thought it could have been the Mentaiko spagetthi but those don't sound like they cause a virus infection.

      Thanks! I still have to take a picture of wearing them once I feel better :D
