 Grease has got to be the best musical and movie soundtrack of all time for me.  A story about a group of 50’s greasers and bobby soxers.. back when music and cars were a life style. I absolutely love the 50’s… the style and attitude..the movie drive-ins, malt shops diners, pencil skirts and classic rock and roll.. this is definitely my favorite decade

Anyway back to was actually a Broadway stage musical in the early 70’s before it was made as a movie in 1978.  Its been 30+ years since its release and this classic has remained one of my fav movies of all time since I first watched it on a TV special when I was in the 4th grade?! gosh I feel old…  and no matter how many times you watch it, it never gets old! I might have watch it nearly 100 times now…

So I was absolutely thrilled when I heard that the Grease musical was finally coming to Vancouver and quickly secured tickets for Halloween night which also finalized my decision on my costume as Pink Lady.  I love everything about the 50’s and this was my chance to go all out with 50s wear. Also it was in my favorite color Pink!  Well the musical was a blast and entertaining with soooo much energy.. Id love to do it all over again..

oh and there was even a theater release of a Grease sing-a-long version during the summer. Its like
karaoke on the big screen with lyrics on the bottom and having the entire audience participate! how geeky fun is that!

Clip from the movie: 

**on a side note Johnny Depp is the HOTTEST bad ass greaser in Cry Baby

Heres a clip of the original 70’s Broadway Cast – Summer nights

I heart Tokidoki

A Japanese inspired brand created by Italian artist Simone Legno - Tokidoki meaning “sometimes” in Japanese has now gained worldwide recognition not just in toys, apparel but theres also make up, footwear, skateboards, jewellery..accessories..etc

I absolutely love every single piece of clothing ive bought since Ive first spotted this brand a few years ago during my trip in Hawaii where there was a launch for the LeSportsac line of Tokidoki bags. Ive been searching for their products since and not until my recent trip to LA – I was able to visit their retail store on Melrose Avenue and I was in Tokidoki heaven!!  *only 3 other stores in the world which are located in Italy, NY and Taiwan . There are many Tokidoki characters from the tattooed asian girls which are my favourite to the cutsy cactus friends,  skeletrino (skeleton pet cat), moofia (milk carton/bottle characters), captain coco..etc

Heres one of my Tokidoki purchase at the store and my fav bag right now:

Child of the 80s

I can recall a lot of the 80s but didnt realize what a special era I was living in and have many fond memories of that time...what a colourful, fun and creative decade it was. How I miss those simple pleasures and everything was so innocent and carefree!   We didnt have the internet but we had pen pals. I had an old school banana seated pink bicycle which I rode to Girl Scouts get togethers. Roller skating rinks were cool, and we had skates not rollerblades. I had a big sticker collection mostly Scratch and Sniff ones and I had an obsession with unicorns. This was back when trick or treating was fun and streets were safe for kids
I remember playing Pac-Man , Frogger, Donkey kong,  Space Invaders, Qbert on my Atari
I had toys like Rainbow bright, Cabbage patch, Garbage Pail kids, Strawberry Shortcake, Care Bears and just about everyone owned a rubiks cube 
I liked Wham, Aha, Tears For Fears, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, MJ, Culture Club…oh and Tiffany
My favourite shows were Silver spoons (LOVED Ricky Schroder ) Knight Rider, Facts of Life, Mork & Mindy, Threes Company, The A-Team , Wonder Woman and even The Greatest American Hero    There was nothing better than watching cartoons like the Scooby doo, Smurfs, He-man, Richie Rich, The Littles, The Last Unicorn, The Berenstain Bears, Inspector Gadget..etc
I could never get enough of the Goonies (which my first movie theatre experience with friends), Gremlins, ET, Superman, The Lost Boys, Never Ending Story and Labyrinth 
Ill never forget the neon hair ties/clothing, jelly shoes, rubber bracelets, MAD magazines, Kool aid, pop rocks, snoopy snow cone machine, Chuck E Cheese  and ‘Wheres the Beef!’
It was a nice time in my life but as a kid then, I was 16 by the end of the 1980s. This was the decade to be a kid and I hope to never forget all those good memories… this is really making me feel old now but warm and fuzzy..what a great time it was.   It would be interesting to read about 'children of the 90’s and 2000'

Tale of devotion

Hachiko –  a great movie based on a true story and one of the most touching movie ive seen about a bond formed between a dog `Hachiko` and his owner.   I cried intensely towards the last 30 mins.. what a lovely and moving story

This movie is a adaptation of the real story which took place back in the 1920`s in Japan,  Hachiko was the faithful ``Akita`` of a Japanese university professor. Everyday he would come to the train station to await his master's train and return home together. This routine continued until one fateful day, the professor unfortunately died at work due to a heart failure 

Hachiko kept coming back to the station and became a familiar sight to commuters for ten years.He died on the very same spot he last saw his master alive.

After Hachiko's death, a statue was built outside the Shibuya railroad station in honour of his loyalty. Hachiko's body was stuffed and on display at the National Science Museum of Japan
