Hajimemashite… mikko desu… dozo yoroshiku. (translates to: Nice to meet you for the very first time. I am mikko. Please give me your guidance)
Always feel that the Japanese has their way of making you feel very respected and nice.
Erm…. Cant help being nervous cos this is my first blog for mikko.
Now, why this blog? What’s so different or what makes it interesting?
Friends has always asked me to help translate Japanese things in English for beauty products. Finally, I find the time to do it.
To pursue my interest, my love and passion for the Japanese language and also of things on beauty and fashion popular in Japan. Since, I didn’t have a choice but to stay in Singapore… I am trying to give myself as many excuses to visit japan as possible (hee hee!) Anyways, friends always say that I am crazy for making a few trips to japan every year.
So… what do I want to do here? I have always been asked to bring things for my friends when I make my trips… so might as well do it as a business. No one can complain that I am a shopperholic right? Since I buy for my business now.
Mikko is a name given by my Japanese Sensei (teacher).. and this blog will be within or linked to Mikko’s shop. I hope to share all my trips to japan with my current and future friends.. (**big grin**…. Looking forward already). The shopping places, the food (yum yum), how to stay in japan economically and also the very unqiue culture in Mikko’s view. Mikko will be your ‘eyes’ in japan.. sharing what’s new and popular in Tokyo and other parts of Japan. I will bring back special items not found here. No need to read all the difficult to understand japanlish or Japanese on the labels. I will introduce them to you in English.
Yes!!! An e-shop for things popular in japan, now in English…. Available in Singapore!!!
Mikko will also share good Japanese stuff here in Singapore.. Mikko’s friends are also welcome to share their favourite Japanese shopping experience, food etc here.
Mikko’s friends, please visit often to share your experience and views with me …
By the way, here’s Mie chan (endearing way of addressing someone dear or younger), my pretty tibentan spaniel, my princess… she appears often, with me and can be seem with Mikko’s caricature. Will share more of her photos soon.
Mata Kondo…(see you again). Jya ne (bye)
