Thought I’m going to have a HAPPY CHRISTMAS this year but it wasn’t, now I better hope for the coming 2014 to be awesome and hopefully in my new house (I WISH!)

So after delay for so long almost 2months. Here’s my first post on my Japan Nikko/Tokyo trip. Too many photos and thanks to Simon for putting words on the pics to remind me where we go and what we did. hahaha. It’s a super tiring trip like a marathon or amazing race but I enjoy this trip so much that I’ve serious withdrawal symptoms for about 3weeks.

The best part of this trip is that I only spend about $1300? Including flights+hotel. EVERYTHING. And it’s the first trip that I never gain weight. I’m so surprised.

I decided to put 20 photos for each post relating to Japan so you all don’t need to scroll endlessly. (sometimes more)

Don’t scroll blindly, it’s all passionate writing from Simon. LOL

It was about 13bus stops to our hotel.. Kono-san is so friendly and fatherly! hahaha. We had stone bath this night and the water was so hot!! I don’t dare to go in LOL!!! But the path to the stone house, you need to brave 4degree in the night with only your lounge wear. SO think about it..13 photo 13_zps3e5361c2.jpg

Look at how happy I was!
Love this Coat from Pull and Bear even though it never really keep me warm HAHAHA.
So happy when I was in Japan, come back to Singapore I feel like dying, the culture is really different. Japanese are so polite!!!!! They don’t push they don’t stare and they don’t curse openly. The vending machines are so convenient the food are so nice, even the combini food are better than some of the jap food here! I really hope I have some time this coming year to go back there. 🙁

Let’s look forward to photo 22-41! 🙂

With Love,
