Back then after graduation in the middle of finding a full time job, I decided to make my first handmade necklace to my then boyfriend (now husband) as a gift. It was fun that I started making more for myself, for friends and for my family.

I got compliments from the necklaces I made, so I decided to set up my own shop on Etsy and occasionally sold them at flea markets. It was such a fun experience and I thought it would be nice if I could do this as a career.

Moving to Japan a few months ago, I found myself in one of the biggest fashion capitals of the world. It is full of life, styles, forms and new ideas. This makes me want to create something new and different for my shop.

I'm letting you all know what Cocoa Chu Chu is growing into a different direction. I decided to set up a new shop Cosette, to represent my new jewelry line. I'm currently working on the shop's website and photography. Thank you for your warm support in the past years and in the future as well.

I hope to see you at Cosette very soon. Here's a sneak peek of Cosette.

Hello from Toronto (again!)

Once again, I'm in Toronto! This is why I abandoned my blog and yes, my shop too! So happy to see my family and catch up with friends! It's perfectly warm/sunny during this time.

What are your plans for the summer? I hope you all enjoy your summer!

If you love products from wood, you are like me, then you might like Hacoa. I have recently been introduced to Hacoa store from a friend. My favorite is the wooden keyboard (it makes my inner geek happy!)

Don't forget to check out their shop for more cool items!

Kobe trip

Last week, I got a chance to visit my extended family in Wakayama. We also visited Osaka and Kobe since they are very close to Wakayama. I was so nervous meeting Atchan's cousin for the first time. We went to a tradition Japanese restaurant. They served food I was not familiar with, but everything went great and everyone was so nice.

Next day, we went to Osaka for a quick lunch then headed to Kobe. You can see this giant octopus in the famous street of Dotonburi.

Then we went to the Herb gardens in Kobe.

We took ropeway up to the hill. It has stunning view and romantic at night!

I strongly recommend coming to Herb gardens when you visit Kobe!

Wood utensils

I just got a chance to use my wood utensils that I bought back when I was in Thailand. I love the earthy feeling of wooden products :)

This elephant chopstick holder is too adorable to pass on. I couldn't help but buy it!
