This is me writing all what I have in mind right now. As people close to me already knew, I live alone. When times get tough, I also wanted to be alone… because that’s just me…. But after that almost half a year of torment plus the sudden devastating news, I just had to let this out.
They say that coping with grief and loss has five stages…
This was already my second time in Kansai region, so I’ve decided to have my own detour at Kobe for this travel since I haven’t visited that city yet. Kyoto is a must-visit when you are in Japan’s Kansai region but since I’ve already been there last autumn, I decided to forgo even though there is still so much to explore.
May 13 – Arrival
Since I have been receiving a lot of questions and request on how to be a member of SWJ, I decided to make this post about it. ^^
I came back to Japan last spring for SHINee’s JAT concert. Luckily, the dates for the Tokyo stop coincided with lent so I had a chance to stay there for few more days and maximize my visit… well, maximize fangirling rather since I was there for all the days of their concerts in Yoyogi to buy concert goods xD
March 24 – Thu (Arrival)
Travel from Narita to Shinjuku or any destination in Tokyo has always been easy for me. You could either chose riding the train or their limousine bus. I always choose the latter since it’s very convenient to just ride a bus to your destination especially if you have a huge luggage with you. Saves you the hassle of bringing it every time you transfer trains, as well.
Every time I am travelling abroad, I always seek help from google maps and other transportation-related apps (e.g., Hyperdia, Subway-Kr, MTR-HK). Google maps has been very reliable for me so far that I keep on checking on it every time I am roaming around a foreign country. But navigating these applications requires you to be connected to the internet otherwise you may not know where exactly are you and if you are indeed going to the right place. You may take the risk of just looking for public wifi everywhere or – the more convenient one – just rent one for your sole use.
Taiwan has always been one of the Asian countries I would love to visit ever since (aside from Japan and South Korea). I never had the chance before to go even though it was only a two-hour flight from Manila because of the hassle of processing the visa (plus, we all know the tension then between Philippines and China so I was kind of pessimistic that I would get it).
My love for Taiwan is not only for its culture and sights but also for its food~ in fact, I made a long list of food that I would like to try in the country.
