Are you a Rilakkuma fan?

Move aside, Hello Kitty fans. It’s the Rilakkuma invasion. This adorable, lazy bear character from Japan has gained fans worldwide that it even have stores dedicated to selling only its merchandise.

Rilakkuma (リラックマ Rirakkuma?, a combination of the Japanese pronunciation of relax and the Japanese word for bear) is a Japanese character designed by Aki Kondo, produced by San-X in 2003.

Here’s my take on the top items every Rilakkuma fan should have.

Rilakkuma apparel:

Every self-respecting Rilakkuma fan must own at least one piece of Rilakkuma apparel. It doesn’t matter if its authentic Sanrio merchandise or not. But you must own a piece before you can truly proclaim yourself as a fan.

Rilakkuma stationery:

To keep you motivated at school or your desk job, it’s highly recommended that you as a Rilakkuma fan keep some stationery of this kawaii relax bear. Besides being irresistibly cute, at least these character merchandise are practical and functional.

Rilakkuma cushion/pillow:

Because a cushion or pillow is much more practical than a plush toy. You can hug it or use as a back support too.

Rilakkuma handphone case:

As you carry your mobile with you all the time, why not add a little eye candy to it with a Rilakkuma handphone casing?

And because you have everything else. A Rilakkuma plush would complete the collection.

And so, it’s the day after Christmas…

In a blink of an eye, Christmas Day is over and I now, welcome the Boxing Day sale with arms wide open. It’s also a good thing that most companies would have already credited the salaries into their staffs’ accounts. So let the mad shopping begin.

Looking back, I guess Christmas was a small, quiet private affair for me. No jostling with the mad crowd at town or counting down in a club where one has to compete with the hundreds enclosed for oxygen. And still, it was time well-spent. I had managed to resist unwrapping my presents till today.

Seems like the economy is going well for my fellow co-workers because I received quite a number of presents.

Presents from co-workers & dear friends

Candy Galore

Though they ain’t anything big, expensive or fanciful but its the thought that counts and that’s what matters most. I also got lucky during the office gift exchange, the person who picked my name gave me a Dior cosmetic travel kit!!

That was freakin’ awesome!! I love it so much, thank you Secret Santa!

And today, after I unwrapped all of the gifts… 70% of the stuff were beauty-related, haha, that’s really sweet of the givers.

Also got my fav Rilakkuma bear merchandise too!

Ok, this would be a short entry and I’ll be back with an update on my Xmas coy dinner at a Spanish restaurant, complete with some cam-horing photos. Enjoy boxing day y’all!
