JAPAN TRIP DAY 3

September 28, 2007 at 12:22 am (updates)

DAY 3.

at shinjuku. some festival that they’re having… which resulted in many of these:

being setup around.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

FIRST STOP.

breakfast at shinjuku.

more like… brunch.

then….

hurhur. desserts!

which was a disappointment. some icecream chou. i very much prefer the vanilla cream chou. beard papa one actually.

anyway,

i took the macademia nut icecream flavour. maybe thats why it tasted weird. macademia is not their speciality. ok. im just talking cock. i dont know im just saying.

but we still took a photo anyway. (he had chocolate btw)

]

then… we took a train for some…

teaceremony.

walkwalkwalk

to

NEW OTANI HOTEL….

was initially what i recommanded to his mum for our third day stay (because the normal room in HILTON was.. FULL.)

but because of convenience of bryan’s complain (tsktsk), we upgraded to the DELUXE room (there are still vacant) which was MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE. about 600 a night.

photos from teaceremony.

it tasted superb. like some foamyfoamy yummy greentea. 😀

i brewed one what. of course lah.

i wished i knew. actually i do. MAYBE. after observing how this lady who did the ceremony (see herself below) its just that i dont have the equipment. i mean hot water, good quality greentea, stir with this broom. then serve.

ok. its supposed to be an art.

after that… we went outdoor to see the japanese garden.

and our photos…. at the garden…

then… went to the meijishrine…

the shrine built for the emperor and empress of the meiji era.

actually, its a rebuilt one as the original one had been destroyed during the war… but the interesting thing is that its built with wood DONATED BY PEOPLE.

at SHIBUYA…

took a photo beside this huge tree (i dont know the significance of it but who cares. actually i think i wanted to take a photo with the securityguard in that house.)

BRYAN tried to capture one with himself inside too…. but the security guard didnt like his face and got up to scold him.

(securityguard getting up..)

meanwhile, bryan’s mum (who wasnt really interested in the shrine in the first place) was looking at the menu of this lil cafe outside of the shrine..

where we had our ICECREAM!!!

more photos along the way to the shrine (a longggg walk)

at yoyogi park actually. can actually heard bands playing and people singing on the another side…

but were blocked by the tall trees which seperates the path to the shrine.

and finally… the shrine!

we had to actually wash with the water (see above) and even DRINK them before entering. but we didnt of course. as in the drink.

it was a long walk. how can i resist from not washing my hands using the water? its very refreshing. but i saw this ang moh who actually drank the water. hmmm.

anyway, the shrine the shrine!

there’s this wishing tree. and we actually saw this:

i think its pretty funny and me and bryan just had to capture it.

oh. and we saw a weddinggggggg….

i dont know but the ceremony seemed like a solemn one. they didnt smile. and they actually looked sad. the atmosphere is like someone had died.

i guess they must appear serious? like its a major event that they must take seriously. its sooo unlike our kind of wedding whereby we will clap and applaud.

oh. then we went to the shopping area… and saw another wedding.

this seemed must lively and happier which is what a wedding supposed to be. and the cute thing is they had them at a cafe.

i dont mind that. i think its interesting.

more photos at the shinjuku shopping area….

X:

didnt go in though. really. like weird also. a mum, a son and the gf. lol.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

the supermarket. you know you can actually choose which packet of rice that you want to have then they prepare on the spot.

TA-DAH. the end product:

ok lah. that was what i imagined an idea supermarket should be. but see. they actually sell bento on the shelves and its undamaged.

i think the japanese are very considerate people.

this interesting pufff (above) is liek the chou. wanted to try actually.

the cream is added from the opened mouth. they slit a D mouth for the panda and added cream to it. seemed interesting… but we were saving our stomach for dinner.. which we had them at a very good and famous ramen stall. No. 1 in JAPAN!!

kyusyujangara!!!!

they actually had a site and boy was the ramen goooddddd. you will understand why i said that in the future post…. ive got evidenceeeee.

will be sleeping now. its like 12.20am!!! i blogged since like about 8pm (with tv intervals inbetween and my bath)

before i end.. just a small lil preview of what ive bought so far over the past 3 days. (excluding his)

ok.. lastly… im going to present you a poster from MAC DONALDS which you will never get to see them on the train, busstops, etc in SINGAPORE..

good night!

JAPAN TRIP DAY 2

September 26, 2007 at 12:16 am (updates)

a continuation from the previous post…. this time with much more photos.

BUT its only going to be on DAY 2.

(thankfully we had a 4gig memory card)

ME ON THE JR LINE….

on the way to..

LUNCH.. AT

IKEBUKURO

had this eel bento…

2700yen! =\

but delicious. fresh eel. the rice is 😀

fluffy.

but i had this bone stuck on my gum for like a week plus. i know this sounds gross… but i managed to extract it out.. YESTERDAY.

stupid bone.

i flossed EVERYDAY. brush hard EVERYDAY.

dont know why the fuck it just refused to come out.

and it only happened to me. not to bryan or his mum. grr.

i think i washed it clean already.

then we headed to sunshine city…

we saw this huge toyota carshow room…

and took manymany photos……..

they actually are selling the cars… almost all.

cos some are just displays and they are real. used. and some for display.

😀

anyway, our main purpose to sunshine city is to visit…….

nope… not exactly namjatown even though they had many

yummy food displayssss….

but to..

ICECREAM CITY!!!!!!!!!

manymany icecreams…

from all over japan… and also other coutries, africa, china, etcetc. turkey, blabla.

they rank them even.

I HAD THE NUMBER 1 HOKKAIDO ICECREAM….

and i chose CREAMCHEEESEEEEEEEE!!

am definitely very happy. 😀

my bf chose the wrong one though. X:

they had this poster on how icecream are made (mainly japanese icecream)?

it involves.. maths. argh.

and i thought i could open a famous icecream factory next time…

but make sense la. maths. they had to count the icemolecules etcetc.

after that,

we took a BULLET TRAIN to SHIN-YOKOHAMA.

first (in florescent blue) by the normal train..

then the PINK is by bullet train (20mins from TOKYO station).

20 minutessssssssssss.

i think its fast…. not sure if its because we were (or more like I WAS) camera whoring…

or its really fast.

(im trying to upload to youtube but its giving me problem. maybe tomorrow lah, ok?)

but anyway, purpose for our trip to SHIN YOKOHAMA…

RAMEN MUSEUM.

 

they’ve got really fantastic ramen i tell you. 😀

from this stall (the only one that’s selling porkbone based. all diff stalls have ramens from diff places)

apologies. i could only take from the inside because i wastoo tired to walk out and take a photo of the shop.

after dinner… we walked a lil more and see more interesting stuff.

i love this place. very museum and also, good ramen. the pork ribs were so damn good..

BACK TO SHINJUKU……..

bought this chou on the way (love beard papa one better though)

guess i’ll upload more tomorrow (MAYBE).

till then.

BYE

(OH i know. my hair sucks like shit. i’ll be going to a salon real soooooooon)

i had the pearly white one… with shimmersssssssss.

AND I BETTER NOT FUCKING LOSE THIS CAMERA. I LOST LIKE 2? AND ONE WAS LIKE ABOUT 600+ AND ANOTHER ONE (SAME MODEL BUT QUITE OLD ALREADY WHEN I SECOND PURCHASE IT…) WAS 520.

I’LL GO CRAZY IF I LOSE THIS.

dont bother giving much thoughts about this.

September 3, 2007 at 11:49 pm (emotions)

maybe ive changed. maybe, you, too.

but i have to admit that my priorities have changed. maybe its because im of the another person top priority too.

i love being the one and only one. i just feel, important.

and that makes me feel mighty.

nevertheless,

i admit, im feeling pretty hurt despite already being loved. i dont think you can even tell.
