Japan Trip

29 10 2010

Going to Japan soon.

Have done lots of research and planning since donkey mths ago.. and finally the time has come! *Yippees*

I thought it is a bit too fast (time does fly!!), and I was just sick for 2 days (have not been feeling good past 1-2weeks), and one of travel mates – Jing – is also sick!! OH mY! -___-“”

And I have not revise my Japanese language… Oh no! Everything is returned to the sensei already! =( I will be bringing a dictionary just in case, But i suspect we would prob will not use it and will just make do with hand-language, broken english and broken japanese!! =p It will be fun! It has to be fun!! =)

Planning for this Japanese trip – is most challenging travel trip I have ever planned.. Esp the metro/subways.. see already – atama ga itaii desu!! *Headache* Plus the place we covered are big – Tokyo, Hakone, Kyoto, Osaka, Hiroshima (if have time, Nara). and the period is long – 14days!! (Yes we are going to be very broke!!) Luckily we take turns in planning *team spirit is strong* And whatever we didn’t plan, hopefully we can find our way around.. All will turn out fine! Amen!

I am going for fabric shopping for 2nd day (all by myself – free day) while waiting for another travelmate – Jo – to join us. I have done some searching online.. intend to really shop till drop!! haha hopefully i have enough $$ to spend! =p

God bless our trip – fun and safe trip and bless us with strong body for this trip.
