(PS: The remaining 7% has a lot to do with her secret addiction to Adidas shoes and her occasional splurges on discounted high-end bags and clutches, shhh.) [+]

    Happy Back To The Future Day!


    It's October 21, 2015, guys. The future has FINALLY arrived.


    I think 99% of urban kids of my generation must have watched the trilogy of Back To The Future; it's totally iconic and helped shape the future. Which is NOW, obviously. 

    (Note: Statistic is not based on any study, but purely intuition.)

    This t-shirt isn't mine, actually; I bought it in Uniqlo Tokyo for my big brother. Last night at 11:14pm, I called him and said "I'm coming to borrow your 'Back To The Future' t-shirt, I'll return it tomorrow", and he said, "It's late, why don't you come tomorrow" but then I said, "No, tomorrow is no good, because tomorrow is already the future."

    OK, well, the conversation didn't go exactly like that (especially the last part) but it was pretty close. I insisted on coming anyway, just so that I could wake up on the 21st of October and put the t-shirt on. This event is only once in a lifetime, peeps.

    4:29pm Malaysia time UCT/GMT +8 has passed, but the REAL event is not here yet: Doc Brown and Marty McFly will be arriving into the real future in exactly 12 hours and 24 minutesfrom the time I hit the "Publish" button for this post!


    Doing a little reminiscing of my own with these photos from my trip to Universal Studios Japan, taking the Back To The Future ride at their 'Institute of Future Technology':

      1. Hi Jen,

        Thanks, I love the t-shirt too! Wish I had bought one for myself though.

        Which of the trilogy is your favourite? Can't decide which of the three I like the most, but I just re-watch the first one on 21 October (not sure why they didn't show the second one, as that's the relevant one) so for now I say my fave is the first one - I'm obsessed with Lorraine's school dance dress, by the way.

        PS: Your blog is really, really cute!
