Dramas change our mindset on certain principles and the things we used to believe. Our expectations get higher or our hopes get lower and higher. But one thing I am sure of, it cheers you up when you’re lonely.

Oh yes! Finally! after 10 years of dreamingg and I’m finally here! JAPAN! (technically, not now, I came back a couple of months already) been meaning to save this memory before I forget about everything! but, school’s been evil (like always)
Day 1 ( 13th June 2011) – DRIZZLING
Had a long 10-12 hour flight from Singapore -> Tokyo and finally -> Hokkaido. First our tour guide, James took us to…..
famous chocolate factory in Hokkaido! We took a short walk around. I had rose soft ice cream there. IT TASTED FABULOUS! soft milky taste with a hint of rose smell and flavor. Lunch was at a restaurant and had mini steamboat pots. It was filled with high school students and they were totally shocked to see foreigners there. After lunch, we head to Royton Hotel. Our only hotel with BEDS 😀
Settled our stuffs down and went to a subway nearby…. UNDERGROUND SHOPPING DISTRICT. Dinner was near the RED LIGHT DISTRICT. the ladies there are sooooooooo goddamm pretttyyyy!
Day 2 (14th June 2011)- Drizzling again, Cloudy
Next, we went to a small river, James said it’s a famous river, but I have forgotten the name and place 😦 and the OTARU MUSICAL BOX PLACE! hehehe! spent s$100 there. 😀 ( all the musical boxes are for me! ) ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ our hotel was at Hotel Piano ♩ ♬ ♩ Mummy and I made our first trip to the Onsen. love love love it. Oh yah, lunch was Hokkaido famous crabs S$300 ++ for lunch but it was totally worth it. Dinner was buffet, they had crabs too! We had supper even though we were full, mummy and I had a terrible time digesting the food.
Day 3(15th June 2011)- Clear
Woke up early to take a walk around the Kiroro town. Saw dandelions everywhere and each of them are like Fist sized ( no exaggerating) I forgot what was lunch 😦 Dinnerr I think was buffet againn. Before dinner we went to the Waterfall place where I got my classmates’ presents- the foxes and flavored salt. One of the waterfalls
Hotel was at? up the hill with a huge river right below us. at night, we didn’t even need the air condition, all we did was open a small gap, bring in the cool wind and hear the river flow.
Day 4 (16th June 2011) – Sunny and cool
Today, we are going to stay at Toya Sun Palace in front of lake Toya. Practically in between the volcanoes. wasn’t able to go to the Onsen 😦 so I took a walk around the Lake Tayo. Did I mentioned it was the second deepest lake in Japan?
I did not photoshop this photo neither can I ( i suck at photoshop and this is a view from our room)
Can’t really bear to leave Japan. Japan was all I ever wanted since young and I’m finally already here! Tomorrow we will be heading to Mount Shoyu and the Bear Ranch. So excited. Some high school is having school trip here and they were rather noisy. Today we went to the Flower fields. too bad it wasn’t the sunflower season. well, it was still pretty!
Lavender flavor soda like the olden days
Japan is filled with niceness all around. Even though the food here and things are freakily expensive, I’m still having soo much fun! There are fireworks tonight! so much better than Singapore’s
Day 5 17th June 2011- Awesome weather
Mount Shoyu and the Bear Ranch. the bears were amazing! okok. first, in the morning… we went to the STRAWBERRY FIELDS!
Bear Ranch! be prepared to be amazeddd
Cute guy at the souvenir shop
the chief of the village
Noribetsu next! I had honey soft ice cream while exploring alone like I did ever since the 3rd day ): but it was fun and I spent all my money too! had to borrow from mummy. but it’s all right. at night, we went up hill to see a ceremony. lucky us! the “ghosts” practically love us (foreigners) and the staffs were all excited when we said hello(:
forget our hotel name also. the staffs there made our tatami beds for us! nice and sweet. Did I mention, I totally did not lock the door when I left. omg. but japan’s security is SAFE to the maximum
Day 6 18th June 2011- drizzled a bit at night
Mummy woke us up at 530am (430 singapore time) when our morning call was at 715 am. but it’s alright. we took a short walk around noribetsu and caught a glimpse of a pretty large flower which was about the size of my face! it was also in the colour PINK!
The first spot of the day was the seafood market which was also not included in the itinerary. Mummy and I had fresh oyster. Wei isn’t such a fan of raw food. The smell stayed in my mouth for almost the rest of the day ( kind of eww) Freshness and it’s simply delicious After which we went to a souvenir shop to get all our biscuits and snacks ! Lunch was at miyanomori and had the abalone we ordered a few days back. Lastly the last stop of the day, rera outlet factory we had 3 hours to ourselves to just shop for branded goods. nothing caught my eye even though the coach bags were having hugh 40% discount. I got more food than branded goods. well mum got those stuffs for me, since I had 0 yen on me. We also got a watch for daddy.
The transfer flight was horrible, flights always make me tired like mad, and I couldn’t sleep properly. HOME SWEET HOME! I am so going to miss the softwater and the awesome clean air

What exactly did I do wrong here? To have to be stereotyped?
My friend said that stereotyping is a form of bullying. I do not understand how is it that I DO NOT STUDY is any of your business? YAH. I just want to fail all my tests can?
Anyway, it was a tough 8 weeks in school. I am trying to endure as much as I can, sometimes I just sleep for hours and wake up pretending to forget what happened. sometimes I just rant to my 05 classmates, get advice from them and be happy again. Sometimes I just wish that someone would just simply tell me “it’s okay to be sad”, “it’s okay to stop trying to be happy”, “it’s okay”
fyi, I didn’t want to wash my shorts, because you kept washing and I didn’t want you to be tired. but you didn’t understand.

week 1 of school just ended, & I’m already busy like a big fat bee. Though I missed my classmates terribly, I met some new friends. & one of them, is LITERALLY driving me crazy. I don’t understand, how someone can be so quiet, can drive me crazy. It’s like she drove herself straight through my weak soul ):
During those 2 lecture hours, I thought I was going to have to bang my head against the table or scream at her. She was reading my msn conversations without blinking. At first, I thought it was nothing much, so I just ignored it. Next, I was scribbling my own notes, she just had to peeked at my notes -.- Since she wasn’t disturbing me, I carried on. Afterwards, (maybe because I didn’t mind her peeking at my notes) she started to get closer……….. copying my notes, word by word. without asking. :X she carried on this for next hour or more. I WAS SO DISTURBED! When I wrote long notes, she had to copy & stop me from carrying on to the next lecture ( my lecturer already ahead of me )
Now, I have absolute NO IDEA WHAT TO DO! )):
I miss my normal, fun, noisy classmates. They never do such thing.
yeah. so WHAT THE HELL!

Today, I had nothing but fun. Even though, all I did was have a simple lunch with good company. Fills my mind and soul up to the very brim. Just seeing friends, true friends is just like having comfort food. Talking to them would be like having a piece of perfectly smooth milk chocolate for my greedy tastebuds and weak mind.
Meeting up with Irene made me miss Secondary school. The best time of my year. Sometimes I wonder whether I could have done better or make the best out of those years. BUT, I couldn’t have done better. It was because of the things that happened in those years made me a better person.
So here’s for Irene- The best friend I never thought I would keep. & I am going to keep you forever, till we grow old. We will be each other’s tea partner. Talk about the funny things we did or the stupidest things we did. Perhaps even the things we feel that we did wrong.
So what more do I need? When I have my lovely family and heartwarming friends? well, except my ezlink card!

oh yes, I went to korea and had tremendous fun there. I seriously wouldn’t even mind migrating there, be surrounded by plastics and be awfully healthy! This trip opened my eyes and make me realised that I am extremely lucky.
Our tour guide’s “Assistant” does not earn a single cent from all those loading and unloading of luggages, serving food, book meals. His only source of income was that we bought the photos he took of us during the whole trip. Wait, all the photos’ money doesn’t exactly goes into his pocket either.
There was another grandmother in her 90s, with no family and no income. She sells fruits provided free by her neighbors and the restuarant owner. It’s always these kind of stories that made me realised how lucky I am & that I should always be grateful with everything I have.
Day 1: We had lunch at this Korean “Ba Ku Teh” restuarant. Weather was -5 Degree Celsius. Air: Dry, very Dry.
After lunch we head straight to the Palace ( I think it was GyeongBok Palace ). On the way there, We went past the best university of Korea, Yonsei University.
Day 2: Ice Gallery and Ice Wine Cup DIY( mummy got first prize)
Afterwards, We went to have Ginseng chicken soup for dinner!
and did alot of stuffs, which I also forgot. Well, at least I remembered to have Banana Milk every single day!(:
Day 3: we went to some war place and had breakfast there, followed by Kimchi making. DIY beauty lesson, had more banana milk and LOTTE WORLD. We didn’t take any rides, cause it was extremely cold ):
