Visit Okinawa MY is having a contest to win special items from Okinawa, before I explain further more about Okinawa, let me intro you the beautiful Okinawa Japan.


Okinawa Prefecture located at the southern end of Japan is a paradise of eternal summer. Visitors, attracted by the diversified allure of Okinawa, can participate in marine sports in a beautiful ocean filled with world class coral reefs or escape on a tour and come face to face with the magnificence of nature in the forest homes of many rare animals and plants. If rest and luxurious relaxation are what you are searching for, then there are also many resort options including esthetic and spa facilities. Years ago, a kingdom called "Ryukyu" prospered in this land. Today, the remnants of that ancient time still echo in the traditional exotic culture and unique customs of Okinawa that have been passed down through the generations. The customs and culture of this land are particularly popular among visitors.

Okinawa has pretty Blue Ocean exactly what you see from the pictures. The crystal clear blue ocean is a well-known image of Okinawa. The water is so blue it feels as if you are being drawn into the ocean. Colorful tropical fish swim amongst the beautiful coral reefs at the bottom of world renowned clear seas. This jeweled spectacle awaits your visit.

Look at the beautiful under the sea. Isn't it a Diving Paradise? Beautiful coral reefs symbolize Okinawa’s ocean. Okinawa is so blessed with coral reefs that there are islands completely formed by large coral reefs. Everyone is amazed at the colorful fish swimming around the coral reefs.

The people in Okinawa are very cherish and happy.Culture/customs are so varied that each village is said to have original characteristics. The local dialect is also diversified, so much so that even if you are from one of the islands in Okinawa, you may have difficulty understanding people from the other islands. Furthermore, customs and festivals dating back from ancient times can still be seen in each region.

Okinawa has been known as the prefecture of longevity as there are many people more than 100 years old. The secret to their longevity lies hidden in the relaxed environment which is unique to warm tropical areas and the rich nature and unique lifestyle of the people in Okinawa.

Customs formed by the mild climate and traditions prior to the Ryukyu Kingdom are truly diverse. For example, there are many festivals with various purposes from ancestor worship to praying for good harvests and bountiful catches. The custom of respecting one’s ancestors and caring for your ancestors and family is more rooted in Okinawa than elsewhere in Japan. Okinawa is also known for the extreme longevity of its citizens which they say results from Okinawa’s food culture and the influence of "Yuimaru" (meaning to help each other) spirit.

Of course in Okinawa, they have the special handicraft. Okinawa’s representative fields are crafts used as expensive items for trade by the Ryukyu Kingdom, performing arts which are still part of the lives of Okinawans today, and food regarded as the secret to longevity and health. Through these fields, take your time and expose yourself to this unique culture.

Ryukyu culture flourished in 14th to 16th centuries when Okinawa was known as the “Ryukyu Kingdom”. Ryukyu culture is filled with the characteristics of many good old traditions that have been passed through the generations and continue to progress even now in traditional crafts, performing arts, food, lifestyle, and the martial art Karate.

Okinawa's unique culture was formed by the dynamic mix of characteristics from various countries through trade with China, Japan, Korea and other Southeast Asian countries in the Ryukyu era. Since ancient times different cultures from other regions in Japan took root here. Examples include attractive craftwork, performing arts, health conscious diet, unique way of living supporting longevity, and karate which is said to have started in Okinawa

Okinawan food is also known for contributing to the longevity of the Okinawan people. This unique food culture differs from regular Japanese food and was strongly influenced by various partner countries in trade. In addition, there are many dishes using original Okinawan ingredients such as Shima Rakkyo pickles.

A large number of diving spots including the Kerama Islands and Ishigaki Island dot the ocean of Okinawa nestled among the abundant coral reefs. Colorful tropical fish and the beautiful ocean continue to attract divers from around the world.

I guess I will be visiting Okinawa soon as it is too beautiful and attractive to me, Oh!

Valentine's or Birthday gift for HIM?
Here's the new brand for him because all I can say that this wallet has the good leather quality, good compartments, simple and sleek design and most importantly affordable and durable!

Watch the videos below to get a whole idea of this wallet.
Love the compartments right? They are so useful and it doesn't affect the shape of the wallet. Can fit up to 100 Cash Notes and 12 Cards.

Below are my collections :D
Some call it a Fung Shui wallet, some call it a Businessman wallet, but I just call it a "Versatility wallet" because it's construction is made to well space for some folded cash and card in either slot compare the common wallet. The whole wallet leather is using Leather grade 15 is the finest grade of leather, and the inside without using any cushion or card board to maintain it slimmest . It is incredibly light and slim, but rigid and ready for any abuse that you could put it through.

Gallardo Buffarlo GB1268 Luxury Embossed Leather Bi-fold Wallet/ Credit card leather holder. Simple classic & versatility, which can holds many currency notes, credit cards, business cards & etc... 

Item information:
Style: GB1268, Stain and Water Resistant Treated.
Country of Manufacture: Malaysia.
Color: Black.
Material: High-Quality Grade 15 Luxury Cow Leather.
Measurements approx: 10cm (W) X 18.5cm (H)
Measurements approx: 10cm (W) X 8.5cm (H) When Close.

Exterior:Outside have 1 safe slot for holding most frequently use card: pass card, parking card, or id card.

Interior:1 large EXPANDABLE up to 2cm compartments which can hold up to 100 currency notes & some credit cards, 5+1 single credit card slot, 1 wide side pockets for more cards, currency notes, receipts & papers.

At a glance it is over-sized, bulky, and unorganized with a different layers of pockets which make searching for that particular credit cards, driving licence or ID a nightmare.You may even forget where you put the documents in the first place.The wallet is out of shape, the edges and linings have started to wear, and the material has lost much of its shine.

So what makes a wallet distinct? A wallet’s true character does not only lie in the material but in design and functionality. It is how a wallet handles the various documents especially bank notes and how neatly they are secured in the compartment. And a well designed wallet should be able to cater for a substantial amount of notes without losing its shape and form. This wallet for example expanded like a balloon, became out of shape and turned into a protruding billfold once you add a bundle of notes.

Perfect idea for gift because it comes with protection, authenticity card and a gift box.

Your cards and notes will be secured in the wallet's compartment. Besides that, you can now embossed your lover's , boy friend's or father's name or any message into the wallet as dedication upon request. I think this is a great idea of gift because I got myself most of the designs and you're lucky because I'm giving away ONE of my collections.

Designs and functionality suitable for all age.

Warranty : 1 Year

Woman's collection of wristlet is available too!

I'm giving away one of the collection at my picked to you, all you need to do it just comment on my Facebook's Page photo that I've posted!

Just Comment below & I will randomly pick the best comment!

I went to a footwear store and I'm interested with a pair of heels but hesitating to purchase because it cost me at about RM160, therefore I can upload the photo of the heels on the spot into and starts questioning " Should I get it? Is there any other better deal like promotion for similiar pair?, then I will be receiving many feedbacks from followers like : " WOW, it looks so Pretty, You should get it! " or maybe I can get suggestion like : " Babe, I saw a similiar pair at Store ABZ for RM99! "
