2010 – i heart JAPAN Day#3

My 10 days trip is now left with just 7 days. Osaka is a beautiful city that we (the husband and i) had enjoyed. Food, no doubt absolutely amazing and the visits to Osaka Castle, Tempozan Market and Dotonburi was indeed an eye opening experience.

On the third day of our honeymoony-ing adventure we headed to Kyoto.

Traveling light can be rather blissful at times like this as we didn’t really have much to worry about moving from one station to another. We had to changed a couple of trains before we reached our hotel.

IMG_1496

Hotel we stayed this time around was called Hotel Montery Kyoto. A beautiful hotel with a twist of modern western style. Amazingly they even have a little chapel in the hotel for wedding occasions.

Once we reached Kyoto, i had my daily ‘must have’ of Onigiri Salmon.

I cannot stress how much i llooooovveeeee this!!!

We then headed to visit Fushimi Inari Shrine.

IMG_1505 IMG_1507 IMG_1514

The weather at this time was serioussssly cold. I was almost freezing my fingers off. >.<

IMG_1509

The shrine was so big that it took about 4 hours for us to walk approximately 4.5km. No doubt this includes climbing up and down heaps of stairs. But indeed, the aches were all worth it as the view was simply breath taking. 🙂

We also had a stop over to ‘cari cari makan’ which is another objective of mine visiting Japan. Seriously, i think since i landed in this beautiful country i feel like i’ve created a subconscious ‘must do’ in my mind and that is for me to eat like there’s no tomorrow. So i think i’m soon going to be si gemuks when i return back to Malaysia. >.<

Since we were at Fushimi Inari, we assumed that Inari are probably the town’s most in demand food. Therefore we had this for lunch..

Seriously, the Inari was one of the best i’ve ever eaten.

We also had a simple Tempura Udon and Curry Udon which was just so so i believe. 

IMG_1501 IMG_1500

During our walk back to the train station something caught my eye..

IMG_1529

It looks like some sort of biscuit and there were so many people lining up to get a piece of it. It looks rather interesting to me.. lolx.

IMG_1530

So I tried… spicy as hell and i didn’t like it so much. I still prefer my normal Ritz biscuits with cheese if you asked me. ;P

We then headed over to Gion and i was simply mesmerized by how beautiful the view was over there.

IMG_1537

There was like a street of beautiful Sakura and people dressed up as Maiko’s and Geisha’s.

See the Sakura..

It was just soooo beautiful. Pinks and White Sakura. 🙂

We then headed down to Pontocho. A street filled with amazing variety of food.

IMG_1564

By the time we walked through this street it was just about dinner time and we were totally clueless on what to eat coz everything looks real good.

After about 30 min of pondering and deciding we ended up going for Sushi.

IMG_1580

How to resist good food like this?

Soon after, we headed back to the hotel. It was another long day and we were both aching yet tired. Just as i wanted to head in for a nice warm bath.. i saw this which i find it peculiarly interesting.

So… does this means we’re bathing in mineral water???

2010 – i heart JAPAN Day#2

As amazing as it is the weather was extremely good on my 2nd day in Osaka. The sun was actually shinning and it was not as cold as expected.

We woke up as early as 8am and had a healthy breakfast of….

IMG_1420 IMG_1421

not very jappy… but it was almost impossible for us to eat rice in the morning leh~ too heavy. 😦

and off we headed to Universal Studio soon after. The train ride was not rather short and we only switched 2 trains and we’ve reached. 🙂

*love was in the air*

IMG_1423

IMG_1429

It was really hard to take photo’s together as you can see… the logo of Universal Studios was damn small.

Once inside~ we were kiddies in action. 😛

See.. so ah cutes!

IMG_1436 IMG_1438 

 IMG_1441 IMG_1446 IMG_1445 IMG_1444

There were even the cutest little snoopy custard bread.

We then headed for SHOPPING… I didn’t really buy much lahh~ lolx. However i did buy…

IMG_1491 IMG_1492

The pressure is onz wei~ in Japan.. i realize that not only the girls dress up and look fan-effing-tastic.. but the guys are as vain as well.

1) They dress up hawt as hell.

2) They have their hair done all stylo mylo.

2) They pluck their eyebrows… wtf!!!

*i wonder if they put makeup too* o.o

Gtg now~ Stay tuned for more updates. 🙂

2010 – i heart JAPAN Day#1

IMG_1317

The boy and i are currently on our honey moon-ing trip to Japan. Flew in with Singapore Airlines and we had the priviledge of sitting the new big ass plane. (paiseeh~ i dunno what is the plane called but it has suites, upper deck and lower deck wan.)

The view was abso-effing-tastic! Minus the wing* >.<

IMG_1319

I even get to have my own little personal corner for my backpack right by my side. 😉

IMG_1315

And obviously~ there were the movies and games.. lolx

IMG_1308

We reached our hotel by 3pm (japan time) after changing 3 different trains after we have landed ~ and now we’re currently exploring the town of Osaka! So far~ i have to admit, despite the age..the ladies in Japan are superb in doing their make ups and have a funky way of dressing. So far… i have not seen any black hair Japanese girl. If there are *they must have been hiding coz i really didn’t even see ‘satu’ of them. Almost all of them has colored hair yet their hair looks amazingly healthy. wtf do they do.. i have no idea.

(Tomorrow i shall try my attempt #1 to learn to stylo mylo more and start with the basics with sexy eye makeup. lolx.)

However… the food is soooo crazy delicious….. i’m so serious about this. Even the sushi’s i bought from the kiosk by the station taste damn good too. It is sooo addictive somemore… i started with eating just ‘satu’… then… aiihh~ you see for yourself how many i ended up eating..

Even though we reached rather late.. we did do a couple of things like visiting a few amazing places… but of coz~ Obviously eating was one of the main things we did. 😛

IMG_1333 IMG_1417 IMG_1419 IMG_1334 IMG_1325 IMG_1342 IMG_1349
