Tokyo, Japan Vacation on a Budget

My recent vacation to Tokyo, Japan on March 7 – March 13 had to possibly been the hugest culture shock I have ever encountered. It was also by far one of the best vacations I have ever had. I’m not sure if it was the city lights, the fast-paced streets, the countless things to do or just the politeness of every single Japanese person there, but the city was very well-received in my eyes.

To travel from a country that view holding your significant other’s hand as a courtesy, to a country that finds that same public act as taboo, or provocative, was definitely something worth witnessing. The streets were beyond clean, smoking in non-designated area was prohibited, and traveling around Japan — though was confusing at first — can be easily done through their train system which is by far the best and organized system that exists, I think.

If you thought you’ve experienced sushi or real Asian food in America, THINK AGAIN. The sushi was not smothered in mayo or all that other crap sauce that sushi restaurants in America are notorious for. You are literally eating raw food, healthy food, Japanese-people skinny food.

Mugshots of CEBA Miss Sweetheart Pageant 2013

I’m back — and hopefully blogging and keeping you guys updated a lot more. Its been a good what, 9 months since I last made a blog post? A lot has been going on personally which has mentally worn me out. I’m still proud to keep on pushing though! I have a lot of new photos that I need to get up on this site, but until then please be sure to follow me on Facebook.

I recently volunteered to help a dear friend of mine out who was coordinating the 2013 CEBA Miss Sweetheart Pageant which was held Jan 31, 2013 at Station 4 in Dallas.

Basically this is a competition where all the pretty boys dresses up as pretty girls and strut their stuff in stereotypical pageant format, with the inclusion of 8 inch heels and wigs that looked freshly plucked from India.

BTS: Youtube Vlogger Joshua Craze

A few months ago I was contacted by Joshua Craze about doing a photoshoot that he can use towards his promotions and marketing. After a few phone calls we started digging down a little and came up with a fun idea of shooting at an off-road carnival and having him dressed like a Ringleader/Circus Master. He also wanted some beauty shots done against a white background which was surely easy enough.

Two weeks ago we did the actual photoshoot and Joshua was kind enough to brought along his friend who was there to record his experience during the photoshoot. Today he sent me over the final Youtube video he created for his fan base and for us to share with you all. Check it out! Hope ya’ll like it.
