Yukata Party

Looking a bit..
stupid, you say?
Why thank you,
I've been practising

Warning: partial nudity may occur in this blog post. (Yeah!!)

Asaki ordered yukatas from Japan for us all.

A yukata is a kind of casual
kimono, and after two years of studying Japanese and having lived in Japan, this is the first time I've worn anything this Japanese.

I guess it was the inevitable.

So today we gathered at Benedicte's house for a little yukata fiesta.

Here goes:

was happy with her

we've all befriended a malfunctioning Japanese person, 'cause Asaki didn't know how to put the yukata on either.

It turns out Japanese women rarely wear garments like yukata - and Asaki has never worn a kimono in her life.

Luckily, our trusty ol' friend youtube was there to assist us.



What about me and my yukata?

I've lost a bunch of weight since
I got back from Japan
I'm a skinny bitch

Ready for some skin?
I am an
attention whore
after all

Hello, youtube

Somewhere behind me
there's a little Japanese person




Then we looked at the photo album Benedicte had carefully assembled from the semester in Japan.

Then, we binged:
