Mt Takao ~ 紅葉


I’m back after for some time.

Have been out for like almost everyday for 4 weeks now.

Been to so many places like Ghibli Musuem, Arcades, Shinjuku (countless times), Yoyogi Park, for BUFFET and also the title of today’s post, Mt. Takao.

Went hiking there and we took the 2nd hardest trail up to the peak.

It took us about 90mins to reach the peak to see the beautiful autumn leaves.

Great experience I would say as I don’t remember hiking before, not even in Malaysia. (lol)

After Mt. Takao, we went to GINZA for fresh seafood ~ clams, squids, scallops, cod fish ~ YUMMY!!

Also, for that 4 weeks I had 4 times of BUFFET, the same one twice.. SUKIYAKI Buffet and PASTA Buffet!~haha

Even put on some weight now!~LOL

All the food here just look too good and there’s no way to go on diet here in JAPAN!*_*

Around this time, you’re able to see those autumn leaves in TOKYO Area..

Lovin’ AUTUMN though I kinda think I’ve started to dress in winter clothing!~lol

☻HALLOWEEN☻Disneyland


Forth trip here in Tokyo Disneyland but first ever HALLOWEEN trip here!

Rode the two new attractions which is ‘Captain EO’ and ‘PhilarMagic’.

Plus, this season, they’ve got many cosplay characters and it just simply creates a whole different atmosphere in there.

Though I love the Christmas Theme but Halloween is pretty good too.

Went there on a weekday and still it was crowded! It was not even a public holiday but just an ordinary weekday.

Was lucky enough to catch the Night Parade which was superbly wonderful and also DISNEY DREAM FIREWORKS which was simply amazing!

I would say it was a pretty good day as the weather was perfect, we managed to ride on those HOT rides and also managed to catch the parade and the fireworks.

Although I’ve been there like just recently in July, still I don’t get sick of the rides!

Love them all!~DREAMS COME TRUE~

22nd Birthday


CAKE-BUFFET for my 22nd Birthday and 1st ever birthday abroad!

There’s this place called SWEETS PARADISE where you pay 1,480yen and “Eat All You Can” within 80mins.

Great CAKE-BUFFET experience since we don’t have this sort of buffet back home.

There’s so many types of cakes and most of them taste good.

There’s also seasonal cakes like the PUMPKIN for this OCTOBER since it’s HALLOWEEN!

Besides cakes, they’ve got spaghetti, salad, curry rice, soup and ice-cream.

This is something you gotta try if you ever come to JAPAN.

After foodies, we went for PURIKURA and a little shopping.

All I can say is that today has been a very BLISSFUL day!~

自由が丘。。


今日3人で自由が丘までに。。
3 GIRLS OUTING today to JIYUGAOKA!

そこでラーメンとスイーツも食べたよ。
Had RAMEN and SWEETS…

スイーツはスイーツフォレストで食べたけど
There’s this place called SWEETS FOREST

チョコソフレとアイスクリームを食べちゃった。
and we had CHOCOLATE SOUFFLE and ICE-CREAM

メッチャ美味しかった!!
It was soo YUMMY!!

女の子はやっぱりスイーツが好きだね。*_*
Well, I guess all GIRLS love SWEETS..

来週またスイーツを食べに行く予定だ。(笑)
Will be going for more SWEETS next week..

楽しみに。。。
Soooo looking forward…

Rush Hour


Today I’ll be sharing a tiny bitsy piece of story of my everyday life here.

Well, as you might know already in JAPAN, trains are the best transportation here though we think cars are the best back there. (I miss driving)>_<

I have been hopping into trains to and fro from University every morning during rush hours and here are some bitsy things I would like to share.

I don’t know how should I describe them as during that RUSH HOUR. They are really different other than that time. During RUSH HOUR, you might see a little of unity?!~Should I use that “Unity” word here, I wonder!

Everyone queues up in line by standing behind the yellow line (safe zone). There’s about 4 lines and it will be a very long queue at every line. From my experience, if you’re standing on the 4th or more behind, you definitely won’t get a place to sit and get ready to get crush at every stop as more people are squeezing in even when there’s no more space to breath!

When I say UNITY, it happens whenever they see the train arriving and everyone will step forward at the same time, very close to the gate/door of the train getting ready to fight for a sit! Once the door of the train opens, everyone rushes in with their eyes aiming for the sit. You’ll see that HAPPY/RELIEVED faces of those who manage to grab a sit.

In the train, you’ll see them either sleeping or on their iPod/phones but mostly in the morning, everyone is on the sleeping mode. They can even stand and sleep without falling down.~So well trained eh!! I always wonder, are they that tired that they wouldn’t even care about their image whenever they sleep in the train where girls will wake up with a messy hair as their head float around from left to right.

After 3 weeks of attempts, on MONDAY I finally managed to grab a sit and that’s when I realized how they felt when they got a sit and having that HAPPY or RELIEVED feeling in them.~lol
To be honest, I’ve been trying to grab a sit everytime during that rush hour but never once succeeded not until MONDAY!~I was so happy that I don’t have to stand and get crushed by those working people!

This is how it’s like in JAPAN during RUSH HOUR on trains.
Everyone is just afraid of being late for work.
‘Being on time is just part of their culture’!
So if you’re a person who is never on time, you might have trouble living in this country but it might be a good thing/ good opportunity for you to change too.

Saturday Outing


昨日はジョンと一緒に東京に遊びに行った。
Went down to Tokyo yesterday with Jeong.

最初は渋谷にしか計画してなかったけど

秋分の日


昨日は秋分の日だった。
Yesterday was the Autumnal Equinox Festival

で、授業がないんだ。
and no classes were commenced on that day

それで、先生が迎えに来てくれて、一緒に横浜に観光しました。
So I met up with teacher and we went down to Yokohama City

横浜と聞いたら、思い出すのはやっぱり観覧車だ。
Yokohama always reminds me of the FERRIS WHEEL

横浜に着いてからちょっと赤レンガを見て、それから「あかいくつ」という観光バスに乗って横浜の周りに見に行っちゃた。
When we reached there, we first went to the Red Brick Building and then hopped onto the City Bus for a city tour.

1時間もかかっちゃったよ。
The city tour even took us 1 hour.

その後、観覧車に乗って、昼食を食べに行った。
After that, we rode the Ferris Wheel and then for lunch.

4時ごろに東京の高田馬場までに行って、アザムと一緒にタイレストランで夕食を食べた。
Around 4pm, we went down to Tokyo and met up with Azam for dinner.

6時ごろに先生が私を日吉まで送ってくれました。
Around 6pm, teacher sent me back to my dorm.

本当に優しい先生ですね。
He’s a really nice teacher, isn’t he?!..

昨日の休みはこういうふうに過ごしました。
Soo..Yeah!..This is how I spent my holiday yesterday.

Shimoda Welcome Party

We’ve got ‘Welcome Party’ today in Shimoda, the dorm!..

Eating, drinking and chatting!!

My floor has to cook Okonomiyaki and I think it’s pretty cool cos it’s something that I know and also it’s my fav dish!~haha

Yay!..I did help out in frying the Okonomiyaki and also was really careless as I kinda burnt myself with the ladder?!..So me uh!!..(^^)

Here it is..

It ended with a photo session and then back to the room!

Satisfactory Dinner

First ever proper dinner after 8 days in Japan!

It’s not like I haven’t been eating properly but this is the 1st ever dinner OUT from dorm!~haha

Here we are, together with the RAs/Master students in the same dorm!

From LEFT to RIGHT, MAYUMI-san(JP), NICO(France), TAKA-san(JP), Kit(HK), ME!

Great OKONOMIYAKI served in that small home-shop and my belly is sticking out now!~haha

What’s interesting about this shop is that the owner takes pictures of every customers who came here for his OKONOMIYAKI and he collects them in a file!
We’re in the 7th FILE!~AWESOME
