I have a tendency to burn my cooking, but this Domo toaster may be the cutest way to scorch food and get away with it. It’s kind of expensive for a toaster, though. You’ll have to fork out $49 at Urban Outfitters to get one, and while it’s super cute, you might want to read the mixed reviews first. Really want an adorable toaster to get you up in the morning? This Hello Kitty toaster is a little girlier but less pricey!
So we all know, a lot of Asian girls have a unique talent for transforming themselves with makeup. Apparently, perfect makeup skills isn’t limited to girls — some guys can do it even better. Would you believe the beautiful girl pictured above is this dude?
This cosplayer has been getting a lot of attention on Weibo (the Chinese version of Twitter), as well as comments that he’s cuter than most girls. I might have to steal a few makeup tricks from him!
Wish you could come home to a cat, but your landlord won’t allow it? Well, in Japan, ”cat cafes” give animal lovers a place to pay for petting time. Cats’ Time Cafe, for example, is one of many feline-friendly establishments in Osaka, catering to people who live in apartments that don’t allow pets. For a fee of $9 per hour, you can spend some quality time with your furry friends. Studies have shown that stroking pets reduces stress, so it’s no wonder that cat cafes are gaining popularity.
Our resident kitty lover, Emily, has actually been to one in Japan. ”It was extremely clean,” she says. “You can sit on a table, sip on coffee, and pet a cat while having a conversation with your partner. I think it’s a pretty fun date place as long as you’re not allergic!”
Personally, I’m allergic to felines so these cafes would be my hell. But apparently, there are also dog cafes!
No one to snuggle with on Valentine’s Day? No worries! If you have a pet at home, sometimes they’re the best cuddle buddies. Tasuku and his French Bulldog, Muu, are not only insanely cute, but also are living proof that dogs really are man’s best friend!
By now, everyone has probably heard about “Bob” the programmer who got in trouble for outsourcing his job to China. “Bob,” a man in his 40s, was making six figures and paying programmers in Shenyang a fifth of his salary while sitting back at work surfing Reddit and watching cat videos. Yes, you heard right, cat videos. If you’re puzzled at how much time he whiled away watching felines on the web, you obviously haven’t been introduced to the wonderful (and addicting) world of cat videos. Here is sampling of what you’re missing out on. Warning: you will lose hours once you get started on them.
The cutest thing ever — a kitty munching on watermelon:
Maru, the cat that adores boxes:
If I ever have a daughter, I want her to be exactly like this adorable Japanese girl named Rino. Her mom documents Rino eating homemade meals from various countries, which can all be viewed on their YouTube channel. From Korean bibimbap to Vietnamese pho, she happily savors every dish without any complaints. Just watching her eat makes me hungry! I also love how her mom makes her pronounce the name of each dish before eating. Now that’s one cultured kid!
I’m a huge fan of dogs, and there’s no doubt that these smart creatures are capable of assisting humans in many ways. However, I’m not sure if I would trust these furry canines behind the wheel of a car. A New Zealand charity aims to teach abandoned dogs how to drive, with the hope that more rescue dogs will be adopted when people see how intelligent the pooches can be.
The training lasts seven weeks. That’s how long it took me to learn how to drive!
If you ever wanted a mini version of yourself, now you can with just a click of a button! The world’s first 3D printing photo booth will be open for a limited time from Nov. 24 to Jan. 14 , 2013 at the Eye of Gyre exhibition in Tokyo, Japan.
The figurine sizes range from small (~4 in), medium (~6 in) and large (~8 in) for approximately $264, $403, and $528, respectively. If you come in a group, you’ll even get a discount—great for those large Asian families.
Getting married soon? These would make great wedding toppers!
Who says learning a new language is hard? Koshik, an elephant in a South Korea, seems to have picked up a few words from his zoo keeper. In the clip below, Koshik mimics his keeper, and says choah or “good” in Korean. By sticking his trunk in his mouth and breathing out, the elephant has found a way to copy the timbre and pitch of his human friend. Apparently, the elephant can also say the Korean words for “annoying,” “sit down,” “no,” and “lie down.”
Researchers say Koshik does this for social reasons, since he is the only elephant at the zoo. Even elephants need to chat with a friend!
I don’t know what it is about little Asian kids and their unnaturally gifted musical skills, but it seriously never gets old. This little guy is so cute, and (unlike me when I started playing piano at five) obviously loves playing the piano.
Get ready to have your mind blown. BOOM!
