∩( ・ω・)∩,Weekend in Los Angeles ( ・ω・),

キタ━━━(゜∀゜)━━━!!!!!, (゜∀゜),  Hey Everyone !! I had such a blast this past weekend in L.A.! I actually flew over for one sole purpose --> "To attend MIYAVI'S WORLD TOUR 2011". I flew via Allegiant Air. It was so cheap. It cost about $50 round trip from Las Vegas to Long Beach California and the flight lasted only about half an hour. Miyavi played at the House of Blues. I heard the venue was not that big so I didn't even bother waiting in the really long line. Instead, I waited until everyone went in first then I made my way through the door quickly ^^. Anyway, there were a few tables there and in order to sit down, we had to order $100 worth of food and drink. I wasn't going to stand the whole time, so we got a table facing the middle of the stage. We had some fries, burgers, quesadillas, and I ordered myself a couple of drinks--Red bull & vodka, Adios and a Blue moon. hehehe. Anyway I absolutely loved the concert. It was more laid back compared to his usual shows, but this time, it had more of a "homey-feel". He was dressed completely normal, his hair was not styled, he wore prescription glasses, and he cracked a lot of joke :) I'm sure you guys are ready to see some pix. Here we go!! **Click on pictures to Enlarge**

Got my VIP Tag Ready to Rock~

This is the House of Blues Venue

Miyavi Rockin' his Guitar >.< I melted.

He brought Jewelie on stage * Super cute* It was her birthday so the crowd sang her a birthday song. 1 year old baby girl ^^

Super adorable!! 

After the show, everyone else were told to leave except for VIP pass holders *Including me* So I got to meet Miyavi in person after the show! Yay!!! 

While being upstairs waiting to meet MYV, we can see Bobo (His drummer) and the rest of the crew drinking Stella Beer. They were extremely tired. We were told that they had just landed the night before and had a show in San Francisco. They are still on Japan time and had no time to rest.
Sorry this pic is blurry.

Last but not least, Here's a pic of me and Miyavi.
Here's our convo:
(Me): "What's uppp!!"
(Miyavi): "Wut's up!!"
*Shake hand*
(Me): This is actually the 3rd concert of yours that I've been to
(Miyavi): Oh yea? Where? Here?
(Me): No, well 2 here and one in Texas
(Miyavi): Oh!! 
*Handed him my silver pen to sign*
(Me): I know you must be really tired!
(Miyavi): Yeaaaaa... i'm hella tired.
*He flipped the VIP card over and was about to sign*
(Me): Umm Can you sign the front please?
*Miyavi quickly flips it back around*
(Miyavi) The front? Here??
(Me): Yea that's cool, Thanks.
(Miyavi): What's your name?
(Me): Rowie... R-O-W-I-E
(Miyavi): R...O...?? *Looks confused*
*Then I helped him spell it out slowly again*
*He signs*
We get up and I gave him a hug and took a picture together
(Miyavi): Thank you so much for coming out
(Me): Yea thanks! It's nice to meet you!
*Shake hand again*
(Me): See you again~ Byee!!
(Miyavi): Ok, Bye thank you :)

Here are my goodies:
His funny handwriting hahaha!
Got Signed Posters as well! *I'm going to frame these*

Another pic of my autographed Tag

Received 3 guitar picks ^^

That was the End of my Miyavi night >.< *Died inside seriously*

After the concert, we met up with our friend from Korea. He was with a Korean Celebrity Kim Tae Woo, Lead singer from the older K-Pop Group G.O.D. Do you know him? We stayed at the same hotel because it was a free stay :P

We didn't really hang out with each other, but we did meet. He was extremely busy. We ended up going to this Korean Restaurant. It appeared close but I guess they secretly open it for the Korean crowd who are looking for an after party. Our friend had to speak to them in Korean then they would unlock the door for us. hahaha! Anyway, we had so much food! It was delicious! We all together killed 10 bottles of Sojus and 6 pitchers of beers. Lots of Soju Bombs. Everyone got really really drunk. I got to meet up with my cousin Mai that I have not seen in ages too hehehe. Anyway, we stayed 2 nights at the hotel. Before I left, I found out that the hotel fees were actually paid for by Kim Tae Woo himself~ I felt so bad that I didn't thank him >.< That's because I really did not know @_@
The Invoice they gave me after I checked out >.<

The night after, we went to eat at *Shinsen Gumi Ramen* It was delicious!  This place got 4 stars out of 800+ reviews

We sat at the Tatami. hahaha

My Ramen came *Slurps*

So cool how the spoon clings to the edge of the bowl

Mini Gyoza!!

After that, I had to make a trip to my all time favorite store TAKASHIMA
It's got really cute Japanese cosmetics. They have everything!

I took a picture of the Tsubasa Board outside of the store, near the entrance

So this is what I bought...
Dolly Wink Eye Lashes

Bottom Lashes ^^

New AGEHA Magazine. I love their Magazines, that and JELLY and POPTEEN or POPSISTER

At night, we went out clubbing at EXCHANGE LA.
I've never seen so many Asian people put together in my life haha. It's like the hottest Asian Club in LA so far. We went for our friend's brother's birthday. They played great music because there was a special D.J. that night. He played all the popular Trance/House music. There was a Halloween Fashion show going on too. It was quite sexy. I never danced so much for a very long time. I even danced on stage at the end because my friend Amy dragged me up there hahaha.

The next day, Amy (aka Imalovejunkie) picked me up to go meet up with some Gals @ Getty's Center. We met up with a few girls and exchanged some cupcakes, cookies, Japanese bakery, Kimbab (From Amy and I) and Yakisoba. *Delish* We walked around the place.. it was huge!! the place looks amazing. I felt like Alice in wonderland in the gardens. Here are a few pictures. I'm still waiting for more to come
Looks so cool! At first I thought it was a Maze that we could walk in >.<

Self shot. Great Sunny Weather ^^

Body Shot ^^

Sachiko and I (My bangs got messed up eeeh)

A shot of Amy that I shot *Very Kawaii* my nickname is "Miss Photographer" hahaha

Anyway, that was my overall trip. There are more pics that we took but I have not received them yet. We later on went to eat at a Sushi restaurant @ the Pier in long beach before I caught my flight. We took one last group pic 

Beside the trip, I have bought a few new things...
Missha BB Cream. My friend gave me a sample of hers and I loved it so I bought my own in my own shade :) This BB Cream is probably the most popular brand now in Korea. It's got great ratings and many's favorites.
BB Creams (Blemish Balm, Made in Korea) have Vitamins and Skin healing properties. It gives you light coverage (ex: Blemishes) and makes it seem like you are not wearing makeup whatsoever.
The Back (Wish I knew what it said haha)

2 of the 3 shades (No. 21 is the lightest)

Comes with a small pump to help you pump out small amount at a time.

Also bought Lip glosses @ Sephora. So nice, it has many shades. They cost $10.00 each. Totally convenient I use it on top of my Tony Moly cherry lip tint ^^

Bought new leggings. They look like ribbons that wrap around your legs. It's so cool

Safety shorts in Black. I don't like wearing dresses or skirts without shorts under, so this is a great Idea haha

I.Fairy Ruby red Circle Lens from Pink Paradise >.< (They're still in transit. But I really cant wait)

And Last but not least i'm going to bomb this post with some autographs and a few of my celeb meets since this post was about meeting celebs
I met Yoshiki, last Miyavi's concert (last year I believe? in LA). We had a drink together *cheers*. I bought a glass of red wine for him that he ordered. He asked me where I lived and I said "I live in Las Vegas" and he said "Vegas is a Dangerous place" hahaha. Anyway. It was very cool, He's very nice and down to earth. We stayed for the after party. I got to meet MYV a little bit because he was in such a hurry. I also got to meet Sugizo from Luna Sea, he came too ^^

This is when I met Toshiya (Left Signature) and Die (Right signature) from Dir En Grey. Yes I know, my CD was upside down when I gave it to them to sign haha. All I remember was, Toshiya's hands were cold lol

Hizaki from Versailles

Jasmine You from Versailles (R.I.P) So sad that he passed away.. In a way, i felt lucky to have the chance to meet him before the tragic event. He was the nicest one and he truly made me laugh. I got him to wave at me back and as I did the happy move with my arms moving up and down like "Oh yea~ Oh Yeah!~" i looked back at him and he was imitating me and smiled at me like *I see you*.. hahaha So embarrassing but yet so cute.. *sighh*

Kamijo - Very Energetic and Handsome haha ~ he waved at me with 2 hands frantically hahaha and his Big "HI!" startled me~ gaa i'm such a fan girl hehehe.

Teru - Ultra cute! Shy guy though. But he's my fav. I kept waving at him too.. poor guy had to constantly wave back hahahah!!

Yuki - Ultra serious! haha we didn't really talk much. He's very calm and collected.
reason why I got 2 signed pictures is because after my first time getting my pictures signed, I went and bought another set for another round lol lol!!

Anyway. To end this post, If you guys are interested in trying out my own line of Rice Milk Soap, please let me know. I have free samples to give out ^^ I need as much reviews as I can about it. So far, I love it and my friends do too. Please read my last post for more information about it, or email me

Thanks all, Loves
