Meeting Sebastian Masuda, Creator of Kawaii

Side note—Chris is my college roommate and close friend. He introduced me to almost all of the Japanese things I talk about.

Mikey Likes It!

This was enlightening. Happy Friday!! 🙂

(Oh, and by the way, she gave me the foodz after she couldn’t eat anymore of it due to its spicyness. WIN.)
