First Impression of Hello Store USA

Now I am use to waiting a while for things to go through. I think the longest wait for the process was waiting for the payment to go through, and this may have only taken a week or so. I didn't really track it by day but it felt like forever, though I am sure it just felt that way and not actually so.

So I had gotten my e-mail on Friday saying my order had been completed. I had yet to get my package so I guess that means that it was shipped. And thus I decided to check the days for eastern side shipping (I live in Florida) and it said 2-3 days.

I was going to guess around 3-5 days for shipping. Since it was gone on a Friday I figured the latest I would get it would be on Friday, the earliest on Wednesday. Well coming home from a long day of schooling I had a headache I see a small box sitting on my pillow. I knew what it was and shrugged it off not feeling so well. But my curiosity got the better of me.

After fighting with the safe vault Japanfiles calls a shipping box, I swear it took me longer to open the shipping box than the items themselves. The cellphone charm was in it's original packaging, sealed away, and wrapped in bubble wrap. It was in perfect condition, I was afraid that would be too big for my phone, considering Japanese cell phones are so much bigger due to the screen size to read the kanji. But I was pleasantly surprised that it was actually quote manageable, and that I will be getting a new phone soon it should be good. The photos themselves came in to cardboard sides. Both came in there own clear plastic covers. I had gotten Linlin and Junjun photos last summer that were this size that didn't have a sleeve. So I just put Mitsui in with Reina and had Linlin and Junjun in the other. It makes me feel better that they are covered.

On a side update I changed the photo for the week on Sunday. I'm sure most of you all already noticed. This one is from the 2009 Winter concert. As for the Bright Smiles site. It's on a hiatus for now. I don't know what's wrong with the gallery and life is a bit crazy right now. So I ask that you all be patient. Thanks~! Till next update.

  1. Nice pictures, I'm mad at myself for not going for the Platinum 9 Mittsi photocard before it sold out, such a great set.
