Post The Card

Received postcards from my friends who had been travelling all over the world.
Hong Kong & Macau from Joyce
Postcard 01 - HK & Macau
This is her first ever adventures to travel around Hong Kong and Macau with her net friends. Her message was "Here are the HK postcard which posted from Macau. Macau really antique and full of Portugal 'feel'. If have chance, come here have a look". Indeed, a year later, I visited Macau and it is like what Joyce said, "Portugal feel". This is my first postcard received from a friend.
Russia from Liong Sung
Postcard 02 - Russia
He is not travelling or having any vacation at Russia but he is working in Russia for the 3 years. How I wish I got this opportunity to working overseas but within a short period.

Australia from Joyce again
Postcard 03 - Australia Perth 
This is the second postcard received from Joyce. She went Australia last month and celebrate X'mas at there. When can I travel to my favourite place of all time?

Krabi, Thailand from Tracey
Postcard 04 - Thailand Krabi
Indeed, this is also second time I received postcard from her. The first postcard was from Taiwan back in 2009 but I think I had misplaced it and couldn't found it until today. Hope one day it will appear right in front of my eye. This second postcard received on last Friday where she and her dear dear and also another 1 pair of couple visiting Krabi, Thailand. She loves beach by the way. It is so touching and grateful to receive postcard from a friend who got the heart to pen down the postcard and mail it back to your home.
Thanks a lot my friend!
OMG~ I still got lots more post on my trip to Japan and Taiwan and I am 3 months far behind.

UPDATED: The photos above had been re-edited and re-uploaded for better viewing purpose.

Party Play Lifestyle Cafe @ Lintas

I think most of you had noticed or even visited this newly opened cafe which located in Lintas.

As what I'd read from Mei Tzeu's blog and one of my colleague, Angliea who non-stop telling me, regarding this Party Play, finally we had decided to have a small gathering at there.

To Mei Tzeu: Sorry for keep put "airplane" since Sept or Oct 2010 on our promise to dine in Koganei Japanese Restaurant, Lintas. Hopefully after CNY, we able to go there for dinner.

The cocktail which I ordered (forget the name xP)

Spaghetti with Tom Yam sauce. Really special spaghetti to me

Roasted Whole Teriyaki Spring Chicken

Overall, the foods are delicious especially the spaghetti which I think you can't find at other place. Most of the restaurant serve spaghetti either in red sauce or white sauce but this one serve in Tom Yam sauce. Besides, I love the unique ambiance of this cafe. Suits the name. I feel like I was picnic somewhere surrounded by the green green grass filled with lots flowers with a cleared blue sky.

Kyoto City Tour

Date of Visited: 27th October 2010

Kyoto is the first city we visited for our Japan Trip. The journey from Fukushima, Osaka to Kyoto took less than 40 minutes by train.

Reminder: Japan train station is so complicated. You can't simply jump in the train.

Once we arrived Kyoto Station, the weather changed dramatically. It became so cold and I just wore a normal jacket. Me and Nicole a bit lost (we are not lost in our way), just we unsure which transportation should we took; either by bus or by train. Thanks to the courtesy of Japanese policeman. He is so kind to help us and even recommend us to take bus as there is 1 day pass to tour around Kyoto which only cost 500 yen. So we took his advise as we think it is reasonable to do so.

Following are the place we visited in Kyoto:

Kiyomizudera Temple
Also known as "Pure Water Temple" is one of the most famous temple in Japan. Must visit temple when you are planning to Kyoto.

There is another shrine which known as Jishu Shrine which located behind Kiyomizudera's main hall. This is the place for those who plan to search for perfect love and matchmaking.

In front of the shrine, there are two stones set about 10 meters apart, which they called as "love-fortune-telling" stones. According to the Japanese, if a person walks safely from one stone to the other stone by closing their eyes, his/her love will be realised.

I touched the stone and I will find my true love???

Yasaka Shrine
Yasaka Shrine, also known as Gion Shrine is located in the Gion District of Kyoto.

Gion is one of Kyoto's famous attraction. If you ever heard of geisha, this is the place which famous for. But since Nicole and I went during daytime, the possibility to catch a glimpse of a geisha is low or can I said is ZERO.

Hanami-Koji, place to dine

Since nothing much can we see, there we moved to our destination. Nicole suggest to one of the place (sorry, I can't recall what is the name of the place) but too bad, out of our expectation, we being asked by the bus driver to pay extra 200 yen as we stop outside the route.

I guess we are out of Kyoto City. So, without thinking too much, we just visited whatever we saw surrounding us.

As the day is getting darked, so we decided to go back to Gion in order to try our luck in searching geisha and find the nearest train station. Before going back, I decided to buy matcha ice-cream. Everywhere I go, should got this matcha (green tea) ice-cream. I decided to have a try on this as there are 3 different layers of colours.

The Geisha??? NO! It's just those Japanese ladies who work in restaurant.

Seems like no luck for both of us to see geisha before we leave Kyoto :(... Too bad...

Goodbye Kyoto! Hopes we will meet again!

My Work Place

First, what will you see from the place where I spend more than 8 hours per day and 5 days per week?

Blue blue blue...
All in blue colour; calculator, mechanical pencil, pen knife, staple, ruler, paper punch and even computer mouse

For your information, blue is one my favourite colour.


Foods are everywhere...

In the drawer

And even the A4 paper box

No wonder my diet plan never works. Keep taking unhealthy snack most of the time (-_-)

Recap of My 2010 History

The year of 2010 is the year of tiger in chinese calender, which is also the year I was born. This year may seems to be a good year but too bad there are some not. Here is the recap of the my 2010 history:

It starts with a bad beginning of the year. My family and I lost the closest family member; which was my beloved grandfather. He is the one who closest to me as he stayed with my family and I since the day I was born. Maybe God loves him so much. I'm really miss him until now. He never scold or even beat me. The thing that I regret the most was I promised to buy a 3R photo album for him but I failed. Sorry, my dearest grandfather. I will always remember and love you. Both of us have similarities which are both of us love taking photo and camera. I bought camera more than handphone.
However, I met someone special and cheer my life since then. I start a new relationship and there is a cheecky story behind. It's all regarding to a dream.

Then, it's Chinese New Year and it falls on the same day as Valentine's Day. Double Celebration! Due to the sad incidence, my family and I didn't celebrate CNY as merrier compare to previous year. But thanks to TTM, it was my first ever Valentine's celebration.

Surprised Valentine's Bear from dearest TTM

The following month is the month of Pisces, and its my birthday. Early on the month, a really blast and surprised birthday from my *deariest*. I won't forget that day at all. There is a video being recorded but too bad, the size of the video is too big.

Besides that, it's my officially one year working in my current working place. Works start to overloaded. Oh no~~~

For my globe trotting, I went to 3 countries in a year.

1. Sweet Summer Getaway to Hong Kong and Macau with my beloved TTM and my collegemate, Vincent and his colleagues. Its my third visit to Hong Kong but first visit to Macau.

2. Adventurous Autumn Japan Trip with my university friend, Nicole. Thanks for the invitation. By the way, Japan had never in my 3 years travelling list as Japan is famous for the higher living expenses and most of the things is so so so expensive. But since got people invite me and it's a one in a lifetime opportunity, I grab this chance and backpack with my university friend, Nicole. Most of them thought we are joining the travel agent but we are proudly to tell u, that we're not. 2 brave little ladies are backpacking by their own. I'm really enjoying backpacking and this reflash back of my Europe trip.

3. Wonderful Winter Taiwan Trip. Celebrate this year X'mas with my family in Taiwan. Love Taiwan so much. That's end of my year end trip of 2010

Last night, it's New Year Eve. My boss invite us to his baby full month celebration in New Wong Kok Restaurant.
End my Year 2010 by went to TTM house to watch fireworks from his house. Thanks so much on the last day of 2010. Although it's just simple but it means a lot to me. :)

A New Year
A New Start
A New Chapter
A New Beginning

Forget the Bad
Cherish the Good

Wish You All Happy New Year 2011
