    This exists.

    Guess it’s time to break out this eye shadow again!

  • A lot of you liked my photos of the color changing jellyfish tank at Shanghai aquarium. Hong Kong had a similar tank, so I made some gifs there.

  • The Illusion Room: This artistic painting style, known as ‘anamorphic painting,’ appears distorted unless viewed from a particular angle. When observed though the lens, the three walls, ceiling and floor appear as one continuous image. The lens is curved, so wherever you look, the image appears all around you, it almost feels like you are inside the painting. At Tokyo DisneySea, Japan. 

  • In Shanghai, China. Pumpkin dumplings, shaped like mini pumpkins.

  • Loved this peelable banana popsicle in China! The skin tastes like banana flavor gummi-candy, and the inside is smooth banana ice cream.

  • I wrote a first-hand guide to the top offbeat places to visit in Japan! It includes maps, links, money-saving tips, and photos. It’s 100% FREE, and beautifully presented on Medium’s platform. Check it out here!

  • They gave us these maps of 18th Century Paris, at the Assassin’s Creed Unity preview screening, at Eurogamer last weekend.

  • Just hanging around in a hammock cafe in Tokyo, Japan…

    Today I went to the cup noodle factory (& museum) in Osaka, Japan. It’s quite far out of the city, but after I read that you get to make your own cup noodle for 300¥ (£1.70/$2.90), I just had to go there. You go through the whole process of decorating a cup, adding the dry noodles, soup powder & your choice of 4 dry ingredients (I did pork, onion, garlic & narutomaki/decorative chicks). Then the cup is all sealed up (you even get to operate the machine to seal and fill it) and you pop it into an inflatable bubble bag with a red cord to take home with you!

    aaaand I ate it. Delicious!
