But you can find cheap things in Japan... yesterday I checked out G.U
it's a cheaper sister brand of the omni-present UNIQLO . And it is indeed even cheaper... Jeans for 990 Yen (depending on the exchange rate it equals 9-10 euro)
i am considering to get one of their skirts.. but I almost NEVER wear skirts.. and keep wondering if it fits me. http://store.uniqlo.com/jp/store/gu/women-gu/L3-gu/Wskirt-gu/
I liked some of their knit wear but everything I checked was mainly "acrylic". I usually want my knit wear/tops to be at least 50 percent cotton!
I tried to work a bit on my assignment, but never really concentrated... instead I filled in an rirekisho template on my computer. rirekisho is the japanese resumee / curriculum vitae. You are supposed to submit your rirekisho HANDWRITTEN. So I began to fill out one and failed. I really need some practice on that.............
luckily you can get the sheets at daiso (100yen shop= 1 euro shops in Germany)
other than that, i start to worry about my cosmetics and skin care supply. I thought, I'd just get new stuff here, once my stuff from Germany is used up. Now I find myself troubling to find matching products. I usually get what the products is used for etc. but I fail to understand what kind of skin type it is supposed to be used for ! I'd say I have an combination skin, which means in Japanese 混合肌 (kongou hada), but i never see this term on any products...
I actually had a terrible skin break out after arriving here. maybe it's due to change of water or permanent use of the air con (they function as heater in winter/ cooler in summer)...
So i desperately looked out for some peeling or wash-lotion and after a lot uncertainness and confusion, I finally grabbed something, which had "nikibi" in friendly katakana written on (nikibi means pimple) . I ended up with a cow-brand skin life product :D
I cannot fully recommend this. It works, but the effect is not that exciting. Furthermore, it is drying out your skin massively. I had some peeling of skin afterwards... Nonetheless, I keep using it for now.
