Shikoku at Japan Rail Cafe

Shikoku (四国, literally "four countries") is Japan's fourth largest island, southwest of Japan's main island Honshu. True to its name, Shikoku is divided into four prefectures. The Shikoku Pilgrimage (四国遍路 Shikoku Henro) or Shikoku Junrei (四国巡礼) is a multi-site pilgrimage of 88 temples associated with the Buddhist monk Kūkai (Kōbō Daishi) on the island of Shikoku, Japan.
A popular and distinctive feature of the island's cultural landscape, and with a long history, large numbers of pilgrims (known as henro (遍路)) still undertake the journey for a variety of ascetic, pious, and tourism-related purposes.[1] The pilgrimage is traditionally completed on foot, but modern pilgrims use cars, taxis, buses, bicycles, or motorcycles. The standard walking course is approximately 1,200 kilometres (750 mi) long and can take anywhere from 30 to 60 days to complete.

Oversize Cops by Encore Films

After headlining the news for failing to arrest the robber because they were too fat and slow, Sergeant Kan and his three cop buddies have become the laughingstock of the country.
Branded the Thai police force’s greatest shame, the four chubby cops are then penalised to lose weight through a 3-month extreme training course, in order to rebuild the image of the force.
Their training turns more intense when a beautiful Zumba dance instructor Meen joins them.
During their training, another robbery occurs. A bank van transporting large sums of money was robbed and has since disappeared without a trace. The four sergeants are called in to investigate the crime, but it has been a long while since they have been out in the field.
As the deadline for their mandatory weight loss closes in, coupled with the pressure of solving the new robbery, can these big guys salvage their careers and prove their worth to the country?

Thanks to Astalift for the invitation to their latest store! ASTALIFT’s third and largest boutique recently opened in NEX, the largest mall in the Northeast region of Singapore. Spanning 688 square feet, this shop features the brand's signature red hue to signify the vibrancy and richness of ASTALIFT.
Prior to attending the event, I wasn't aware much about this brand. I roughly remember seeing beauty supplement drinks from them. I wasn't aware they have beauty products, and all the more the company is Fujifilm!

Review 
Jelly Aquarysta : I like how cool it can reform back to its smooth surface after being scraped! The skin feels supple after application. However there is a slight stickness left behind~
Whitening White Essence : This item really absorbs fast! Skin feels really supple after use! I really like it light and leaves no residue too! Love the scent too~
Whitening Perfect UV Solution : With machine reading, it really blows me off! Just about 5 small sesame dots of the products can spread so well over half the face! So much protection from the harmful rays!
