This week I bought a new really cute kitty mug and some amazing Japanese hot cocoa mix from the store. Since it was imported it was not cheap, so I kept my fingers crossed that it would be yummy! I really like hot cocoa (yeah I know it is summer, I like ice choco milk too! lol) but here in Korea most of the shops make it all watery and gross.
This also gave me a perfect reason to open up my adorable cup lids Nara’s Mother had given me a few months ago! These sorts of lids are common here & are usually a soft silicone that goes over your tea or coffee cup to keep it warm.

I have to say, these cat ones (plus a bow design) are the cutest I have seen yet though XD I actually ran into the same ones in Tokyo Hands for almost 1000 yen (over $10) a piece, Japan loves to mark things up (*-*) these can be bought in Korea for about $2!
The hot cocoa mix is by Meito and cost me around 10000 won ($10) but it should last me quite some time.
When making the cocoa you can mix it with water or milk, I always opt for milk… it is just not the same with water!
Oh also, those covers worked REALLY WELL. Found one from Korea online that I will post at the bottom!
The package said it was a milky/creamy cocoa mix and I was not sure if it would be true, but yeah! They must add a little powdered cream in because it was very creamy and delicious!! If only I had a little whipped cream ♥
here is a shot in the store of the other version of my kitty mug! I went with the happy version, but this little guy is super cute as well♥
My other favorite design is the ribbon style! You can buy this on Amazon HERE ♥ I have the hot pink!
Amazon has the lids up for sale and they are cheap! I have the bow one too and it is SUPER cute♥
