Time flies huh… I still remembered the launched of Tokyo Street @ Pavilion KualaLumpur back in 2011. As you search through my blog you will be able to find TokyoStreet 1st Anniversary and also their 2nd Anniversary Bash. And yesterday, we witness Tokyo Street 3rd Anniversary Sweetest Celebration at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Level 6. The precinct was decked with colourful pop-up cakes for 3 days.
