Leaving on a jetplane

So this is a pre-drafted post. As you're reading this now, I'm already in the jetplane/my boyfriend's G6 airplane heading off for a holiday! Be rest assured, I have another post written for you people just in case you miss me while I'm enjoying myself. PS: As much as I try to steer myself away from the colour pink, I can't help it but to look for items in this similar shade when my new favourite colour is FUCHSIA!

Harajuku Girls

Boy oh boy, my trip sure sounded like I was in Japan for ages but towards our second last day of the whole Japan trip, the day was basically filled with shopping shopping and a great length of distance on walking! So much so that by the end of my trip, the only two pairs of flats that I've brought over died on me!! :evil: :evil: That's just merely our first entrance to pushy sweaty war! Swear to God that I was walking like a penguin because that just describes the amount of space I could move with my feet as soon as I entered Harajuku! It was no doubt an eye opening experience though because I've got a chance to see so many weird different people!! :roll: However, I do admire the amount of courage they had to express themselves and stand out from the crow[...]

Japan Trip Day Three : Scary Night Out

After the short crying drama in the restaurant, we then headed off to another temple called Peace Park Sakura Garden. At this rate, I was completely tired of going to so many temples all the time because I'm anticipating for my shopping escapades so much to the point where all my nerves are filled with terrifying shopping electrons that are dying to leech out of my skin! Till I saw this little cute ferret that was being surrounded by small kids up to my knee's length and myself as well *coughs* going 'AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH MUMMY I WANT THIS TOO' :roll: It took us long enough to reach Level 5 of Fuji Mountain and there were so many cars and buses heading there as well! With the amount of people there, I think you can set up a v[...]

Japan Trip : Sue me, I cry over food

Finals is about to start and 2 days time and I guess that explains my not-so-often blog posts lately. But then again, here I am spending my time to jot down a few words on my Japan posts because I'm so sick of studying already! I've basically slacked the whole day so I thought this would be the cue for me to blog. :grin: Waking up in the morning to a view like that is just breathtaking. I stared down the window for a good half an hour trying to count the number of vehicles passing by in the size of an ant and occasionally spotting a really long bullet train passing by the tracks just right beneath our hotel. Breakfasts filled with buttery crisp croissant, waffles, boiled sausages and DID I MENTION WEDGES at 7am every morning is definitely a sin. Oh yes it is but[...]

Magazines for the men in Japan

Right after the Kimono show, we alighted out bus to get to the bullet train station as I said in my previous post here. Initially, I thought it's a super short journey to the train station but FOL it took us 2 hours I THINK?! We did a short stopover at this quaint rest house and they've got the best vending machines and a hugee shop for you to shop for tidbits! I MEAN HHHUUUUUUUUGGGEEEEE!!! But then again, most importantly i love their vending machines especially the coffee ones because they've got a little camera showing the process of brewing your cup of coffee INSIDE the machine, for example while it's grinding the coffee beans and etc! :mrgreen: :razz: As we boarded the bus to continue our journey to the bullet train station, Kenro-san gave us a fe[...]

Kimono Fashion Show

Have you ever wanted to wear a type of clothing so badly that you've decided to just wrap a towel around your body thinking that it could replicate what you wanted and started walking around being all proud and confident? I don't know about you but my towel used to be my tail, my kimono, my Superman cape and many more weird things you see in the movies! However, I've always wanted to wear a kimono when I was young and when I tell that to everyone, they'll ask me to marry a Japanese guy! :evil: I MEAN THAT CAN NOT BE THE ONLY WAY RIGHT! We could have always buy them right right?! Shoot me please, because after our lunch on the second day, we were bought to a Kimono Factory! LET ME HEAR YOU SCREAM OH-MY-GOD!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Btw the green bike above, that's the Japanese[...]

Holy Second Day at Kyomizu Temple

Waking up at 6 in the morning for breakfast at 7am was somewhat different from my usual routine but I just love the breakfast that most of the hotels serve! Don't laugh but I sure can't cook scrambled eggs at home for nuts!! Luckily they serve scrambled eggs as breakfast with boiled sausages every morning (YAY FOR HEALTHY FOOD) so I was a happy girl by noon all day! :mrgreen: Another reason contributing to my happy dilly mood was when I discovered that my sister and I wore the same purple frill top on the same day without even telling each other ahead! What a coincidence really! She was really annoyed though when others asked us about it hahahahahaha! I'm such an attention seeker wth :roll: Okay I take that happy dilly statement back because it was drizzling most of the t[...]

First Night in Osaka

After a whole noon of fun spent at Universal Studios, it was time for us to head to our hotels to check in. There goes our first stay of our entire trip in Osaka. On the way to the hotel, there was a whole street filled with all the luxuray brands for the tais tais with the likes of Miu Miu, Gucci, etc and just right behind is MY SHOPPING HEAVEN for the ones whose young at heart! I'll get to that later. I just love the streets in Japan as they are always kept clean and there's not a SPECK OF RUBBISH IN SIGHT! The population in Japan is higher yet the level of cleanliness is way better, that's saying something isn't it!? I've heard others saying 'Japan is so clean, it makes Malaysia/Perth looks like a rubbish dump' hahahahha! Anyways, we checked into a tiny hotel called 'Cross[...]

Big Family Trip at Universal Studios Japan

Finally a blog post after so many months of hibernating!! As most of my friends have known, i went back to KL during my winter break in July to go for a family trip to Japan, The Land of the Rising Sun! I remembered being very excited about it because as a family girly girl, I love going on trips with the whole bunch of family as this time, I went with my cousins' family too! The usual ones that has been hanging out since God knows when! *OH OH OH DID I TELL YOU I WAS BUGGING MY DAD TO GET ME A DSLR BEFORE THE JAPAN TRIP TO TAKE NICE NICE PHOTOS N HE WAS SO NICE TO GET ME ONE JUST THE DAY BEFORE I FLY :razz: :razz: :razz: I LOVE YOU DADDY! * Ps: But do bear with me for the first few posts because I was just learning all the manual settings in one night FML so in the end, due [...]
