    Embarrassed

    Embarrassed

    Chance upon Amanda’s travel and I am so ashamed that I have yet to complete a single entry on my travels. While I wasted my time trying to learn things half-heartedly, multitasking seriously doesn’t help in the long run. Hopefully I will get something done while I plan for my next trip.

    (2014 Oct) Yufuin-Nagasaki-Kumamoto-Tokyo

    <This post is belated.>

    Embarked on my first trip alone, yes on SIA, I went to my favourite country to catch my first Japanese concert overseas 安室奈美恵. This 2 weeks trip was an eye opener for the pampered me. I will really recommend this to any female traveller who wishes to travel alone but doesnt dare to. 🙂

    Total damage from the trip? Unknown, maybe around SGD 3000 if you exclude my horrifying purchases from the CD and anime shops ><”

    PS: too lazy to be a real travel blogger hence click here for a simplified itinerary.

    (2013 Nov-Dec) Osaka-Nara-Kyoto-Kobe Part 1

    やった!うれしいいいいい。本当に!わたしは日本の行った事があるんですね。At last I went to Japan.

    A really wonderful place with great, helpful people.
    A really delicious place with lots of interesting items to see and eat.
    A really tech-savvy place with amazing gadgets to use and play (haha).
    Lastly a really clean beautiful place despite the lack of rubbish bin. Even the toilets in the mid of 伏見稲荷大社 (Fushimi Inari Taisha) is cleaner than our dearest neighbourhood shopping malls.

    Anyway, the 2 of us managed to survive the trip despite our broken Japanese. As mentioned, the locals were a helpful lot – I had asked at least 4 ladies for directions and all were kind enough to stop and even bring me to the correct location. Hence, I will strongly encourage you to seek help if you are really lost and with no internet connection to google.

    A free visit to the Gardens :)

    Thanks to YW, I got  to visit Gardens by the Bay for free as part of her company’s Family Day.

    We started with a visit to 鼎泰豐 at Marina Bay Sands for lunch. As usual, it was packed with people and by the time we had our lunch, an hour and a half had passed, making us ‘late’ for the Family Day.

    Following the directions at Bayfront Mrt Station, we were welcomed by the rain as we walked towards Gardens by the Bay.

    First stop was Flower Dome. The photos below were taken in the Flower Dome, including the function room, which was used to hold the Family Day.

    Below is the Cloud Forest. It was already 8pm when I went in, and my camera and the night ain’t best of friends… hence the lack of good images.

    Lastly from last shots from Gardens by the Bay.
