Hey girls, today I’m super exicted to be giving my Rainy Cocoa first impressions. It’s been three weeks since the series started and there’s finally enough material to actually craft together a blog post. Each episode is two minutes long … Continue reading
Hey guys how are you all? I’ve been crazy busy this week with family stuff and family friend meet-ups but I did have a chance to swing by the latest Animate Cafe featured in Tseun Wan, Hong Kong. The cafe is based on Yana Toboso’s popular series, Kuroshitsuji or Black Butler, mainly with poster prints, character stand-ups and a lovely menu themed around the Book of Circus and Book of Murder arc. The Book of Circus anime adaptation just finished this summer season and the Book of Murder arc will be released as an OVA.
This was my very first Animate Cafe and the food wasn’t as bad as I expected. Actually, it was quite tasty for food that was mostly featured for the sake of the theme. Each drink came with a free coaster and each dish came with a bookmark, all were blind draws so you didn’t get to pick your favourite design. For the coasters I got Sebastian and Charles Phipps. There were five bookmark designs in total and I was SO CLOSE to getting all of them but in the end I got one duplicate. I went with two other people so we got quite a few dishes. We ordered the hamburger steak, curry, darjeeling tea, hot chocolate, the afternoon tea set and the strawberry parfait. For an extra 20 HK dollars (around 4-5 Canadian or US dollars), the parfait came with a lovely folder. As well, I got a button and an extra key chain from the gift shop part of the cafe, both were blind-draw boxes, specially featured for this event. I was thrilled to receive the Joker on both pieces because not only is he exclusive to the Book of Circus arc, he’s also voice by my favourite voice actor, Mamoru Miyano. Below you’ll also find a picture (I secretly took) of Daisuke Ono’s signature \*O*/ (yeah, you’re not supposed to take pictures LOL)

WOW WOW WOW There is such a LONG LIST of anime for this spring season’s anime lineup. Since winter was a bit of a dud for most of us, either following the more popular shows like Nobunaga the Fool and … Continue reading
Looking for a cute cafe around Yau Tong? Well, just off the MTR is the Domain, a new mall that recently opened. Riso Secreto is on the second floor near a clear set of windows. Sipping Riso’s mango tea or having their cuppacino while nibbling on honey sausages is a simply splendid way to spend the afternoon. The masquerade theme makes the experience all the more enjoyable.
Around the cafe is 3-4 floors of different stores. There’s something for everybody but especially for kids… The giant toy store and arcade on the fourth floor is definitely a hit with the kids. There’s also a bookstore, an artist feature store for crafts and jewelry as well as a small music store for piano sheet music. Of course, like every other mall, there are plenty of fashion brands and a few shoe stores. What makes this mall great is that its convenient, off the MTR and right next to the bus terminal.
Hope you guys enjoyed this travel post… I left Hong Kong so quickly that I didn’t get a chance to post all my little travel blurbs. So I’m gonna rewind a bit and keep posting all the reviews and rants that I’ve been safekeeping for a while.
Thank you so much for reading! I’m sure I will talk to you guys very soon!
