Sayonara, Sophia!

Another goodbye.

Somehow I still cannot get used to them, even though it's common occurrence while living abroad and befriending fellow wanderlusters.

I met Sophia when I first arrived in Tokyo, and we immediately bonded over blogging, lipstick, our mutual love of dirty rap songs, all things Japan, and most importantly, food!! It was a fun, intense, albeit short-lived encounter- like most in Japan. Yet, those friendships are always so significant, and I know she will be another lifelong friend.

Sophia said goodbye to Tokyo with a stylish fete thrown in Nakameguro, at a fun venue called Just Another Agency, complete with ping pong tables and personalized playlists from her friends. We played DJs for a night, danced, had an Italian feast and copious amounts of wine.

Sophia, Tokyo will miss you, you and your impeccable taste in all things food and fashion related. Cheers to your next step, and until then.

I promise that we'll reach the Golden Cracker next time we're at the Park Hyatt.

Ping pong and friends

Just dance
