From Girlybubble: What do you get the person who has the cutest things? Well I bet that person doesn’t have this kawaii soap dispenser! Unless she got it before it sold out. Yes, my cute-seeking readers, I can’t seem to find anywhere online that sells these kawaii, pink soap dispenser with a little pink cute version of Sponge Bob inside. If you can find them let me know, because I have a friend that would die for something like this! More »
From Girlybubble: I was never one to get too crazy with my nails. I think it’s because I was always kinda clumsy and would break my name on something or would cut gashes in my ex-boyfriends. What I liked about nail art is that there’s so many things you can do. You can see so many creative little things in this small Japanese collection: fruits, teddy bears, and of course Hello Kitty. All this goes to show that Japan just makes everything cuter!~ More »
From Girlybubble: AKB48 is this JPOP band that has 48 female members! It’s more accurate to say that they’re three groups in one with each having 16 members. 16 x 3 = 48. Each group is designated Team A, Team K, and Team B. Hence the name AKB48. That isn’t the interesting part. This idol group also does theater shows once a week. I kid you not! And of course their poster is sooooo kawaii! Youtube videos after the jump. More »
With so many things going on, we haven’t had much time to do the planned re-design of our sister site Girlybubble. So we’re just going to use the old design while we restart the site. Besides a redesign, it was also planned to narrow the theme and scope from all things girly to all things pretty and cute. That much we can do easily. You’ll be happy to know that our own Princess of Cute, Sarah Kim of the Ningin famous “Missy Kim Favorites” column will be writing for our Girlybubble site. More »
Racism is alive and well in New Zealand. New frickin Zealand! Ryotaro Wright was nearly killed when some high schooler took bullying a bit too far. He had to get emergency brain surgery just to be alive now. According to the article, he’s been going through this for four months but no one stopped it before it came to this. Makes me sad…
Looks like someone messed up here. Whatever the excuses or reasons I don’t think you can get away with using a plane that even remotely resembles a Japanese Zero Fighter on this SNSD album cover. It’s amazing what details and goofs get missed in the production of an album!
I know suicide is a hot-button issue here on Ningin and just about everywhere else. A few weeks ago we had the reported suicide of a former South Korean president. I don’t know if there’s trends in suicide or not, but yesterday the lead singer of the KPOP group Shines swallowed 40 sleeping pills. All I can say is, without trying to be judgmental, how can we expect teens and kids not to commit suicide if leaders and public figures keep doing it?
Just when you thought Morning Musume had finally run out of steam, the Japanese idol group Hello! Project invades the Cpop market with Ice Creamusume! The all-girl group is a Taiwanese reincarnation of those beloved (or annoying, depending who you ask) Musume girls that have made millions in Japan and worldwide. More »
They really do look too good to be real; however, even if they were real, I don’t think I could bring myself to eat something so cute. It’s like eating a puppy! Unfortunately, it’s not revealed who made these cookies or how but I’m tempted to learn how either way.
