.... POPTEEN!!!

23/02/10

basically that day is a very memorable and special day for us!

it's the main reason behind my trip to japan this time round and also the reason that makes us determined to get our hair done even though we skipped our dinner!

and....


the reason is....


WE ARE GOING TO POPTEEN!




brief introduction of popteen:

popteen is a gyaru (gals) style magazine with many charisma models eg KUMIKKI YUI MARIMO JUN. the famous Tsubasa graduated from POPTEEN too! and she's now in POPSISTER!!



to browse popteen magazine, click on this LINK

it's really a dream come true for us to visit POPTEEN editorial room!
All thanks to Shishido-san!

we are supposed to go there at 4pm. However we are lost again and walked the whole streets of magazine firms (eg. Non-no Cutie Zipper Blenda....)



a postman helping us find the building.

And when looking for POPTEEN firm, we bumped into BLENDA~

the office is full full full of clothes!


Photobucket
the whole alley is packed with clothes!
we didn't enter blenda's office though.. just snapping from the outside. wahaha.

Popteen was supposed to be at the current blenda's location, however due to the expansion of the popteen ( new division of POPSISTER ) they moved to a new building.

we got the old address from the website therefore we got to the wrong place. hahaha.

then we called shishido-san to clarify and she directed us to the new office.

so after much efforts, we finally reached POPTEEN! woohooooot~~

Photobucket


Photobucket
YEAH~~!!

Photobucket
and because we are quite late so Shishido-san is a little busy. However, this kind lady volunteered to show us around =D

Photobucket
once you entered the office, you would be surrounded by walls of POPTEEN~ weeheee~!

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
even their vending machine is popteen-ish

Photobucket
presents from fans!
wow! i mean, it's really delivered over to the models! how great! i want to send some over next time =D

Photobucket
these are the latest clothes from various shops! they will send latest clothes over when popteen requested for it.

Photobucket
their workspace! can you imagine it? the popteen that we read is from here!! there is about 20 permanent staff in the office and some were part timers. on average, they would need one and a half months to create one issue! so imagine the LATEST TREND on this month issue is actually spotted by them from 2 months ago >.< how cool!! by the way, the left side is POPTEEN group and the right side is POPSISTER! they worked together to create the POP-MAGAZINES~

  Photobucket
and remember those questionaire at the back of the magazine~ they would consolidate the data and paste it on the wall so that they would have a clear view on what's preferred and whether they are doing it right. so, minna~ please vote and answer the questionaire~

Photobucket

Photobucket

Photobucket
found models!! fake ones though.. hahaa

and we started fan-girling a little~

Photobucket

and just when we are gee-gee and gaa-gaa about those "models".......

something unexpected happened!!

the real model appeared!!!


guess who.....!!



it's KANNO YUI!!!

omg omg omg!

we are totaly elated and were like shouting and jumping around with excitement!

omg so cool!

she's really tall slim and beautiful in person!

she's without makeup that day and yet she looks really gorgeous!

omg omg omg!

shishido-san introduced the crazy little fans to her and she was shocked that we are from Singapore!

we chatted a little and she was really nice!

we asked if she could take a photo with her. she said that normally she seldom takes photographs without putting make up but she is willing to take with us today!

>.< touched x 10000! and this is what we got! Photobucket

Photobucket

her face is so small in real! >.< gosh. imagine how small kumikki's face would be! she's sooooo pretty even without make-up! then she was called by her manager (?) and she went outside for a while. so trying to keep our excitement even though we are screaming inside, we wrote down our memories and experiences on a book *as requested by shishido-san* hahah

Photobucket

we also posted our puris (taken on that day by puri machines endorsed by POPTEEN models~)

PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket


Photobucket

while my sister is writing on the book.. i went to explore the shelves and i found this!!

Photobucket
one of the first few issues of POPTEEN!! cool huh~! totally not gyaru~ hahah

Photobucket

Photobucket
NO PICTURES!! just words.

hahah. even shishido-san was shocked by my discovery and she was like, " nani kore? " - what's this?

hahaha so we chatted with shishido-san who is free at the moment for a while...

 and when YUI returned, she gave us two popteen and offered to sign for us! she's so so nice!! *touched*

then yui still sat beside us and chatted with us for quite some while.

she is so sweet. she wanted to give us her new Melliesh product but her manager doesn't have it with her. ( _ _)
she said that she is really glad that we are here today as she hardly comes to the office.
wahahaha. please la~ WE ARE THE LUCKY ONES!!

 and guys, she said that she is really interested in coming to Singapore! hahaha. she also showed us her schedules.

omg, packed packed packed. (= =) totally no time for singapore trip until next year ba.. hahahahahah

all of the time, she is without sunglasses so we can really see her long long long eyelashes! and really seeing her up CLOSE is an unbelievable experience for us!

omg omg. it's a fan girl dream come true~

 i don't care if people is going to call me a SHOW OFF but....
 i need to show this to someone!! hahahaha

  Photobucket
autographed page by YUI

Photobucket
my sis's one. (.> <.) longer message..

then after that she went to discuss the shooting with the editor... so we continued to chat with shishido-san!

and she was like, " ii yo ne.. yui-chan ni atta! " -> how great.. to be able to see yui~

Photobucket
finally a photo with our shishido-san!

we stayed there for hours.. hahaha..

Photobucket

WE LOVE POPTEEN~! hahahahaha

and a pleasant surprise from yui-chan when we checked our computer that night.

she uploaded our photos onto her official blog and also the one on galspop.

さ、今日は帰ったら私服着まわしのコーデ考えなくちゃ!!

今月の撮影は私服企画が盛りだくさんだよ~(`・ω・´)☆
this month shooting is full of personal clothes coordinations~



omg omg! O_O can you imagine that?

===========================

anyway, on our way back we were really thrilled!

the excitement just can't subside.
so much so that we forgot to go for dinner! wahaha.

and we bought back instant noodles, mister donut and mcdonalds.

You & your sis are two very good looking pretty girlies! ^_^ One day I think you two will be on the cover of magazines too! xD Don't forget me when you become famous~! lol >:P That's pretty neat that you know a staff member there!
