Yokoso Japan Day Five

Woke up early, headed to 32nd floor in the hotel to have breakfast. Keihan hotel is one of my favourite hotel during the trip. its class and the scenery is simply breathtaking.

the night before this, Koh (our tour guide) told us to have our breakfast as early as possible, as it was a Saturday and crowds will be expected.

us at 29th floor

true enough, the traffic was terrible. the highway was jam, many buses and vehicles. we took nearly 3 hours just to get to Kyoto =__="" even the rest stop were packed! there was a long queue outside both the ladies and gents!
finally, after go through the bad jam, we reached Golden Pavilion (金閣寺). it is a three-story building on the grounds of the Rokuon-ji temple complex and the top two stories of the pavilion are covered with pure gold leaves (photo below).

beautiful autumn leaves...

entrance ticket is in a form of a lucky charm

after that, we headed for our lunch at Tofu restaurant, situated at mount Kiyomizu.

all are fresh, smooth, yummy tofus.... slurppp~

after lunch, we walked around Kiyomizu temple. loads of people since it was a weekend.


Kiyomizu is also a beautiful place

there are 2 rows of shop lots selling local ceramics and other interesting local souvenirs

leaving the place, the driver fetched us to Kyoto station, where we experienced a 12 minutes bullet train ride to Osaka.
the bullet train (新幹線) is really cool! speed at 300km/h

upon reaching Osaka, we headed to our dinner at Shinsaibashi.

crabs feast again. dessert was my all time favourite, green tea vanilla ice cream!!

i rushed EK for shopping during the dinner. haha, time was too short, only about 2 hours, most of the shops close at 8.30PM imagine that... i have to say, i need at least half day in order to shop at Shinsaibashi. there are just ALOT of shops here. many trendy boutiques and personal care stores. their clothes are so nice! their boots and heels attract me the most. but unfortunately, they are damn pricey. a pair of heels cost about RM 200 =__= however, i managed to grab one long sleeve tee from UNIQLO for myself.

a few tour members invited us to walk around USJ. but both of us decided to rest early.. it was a tired day... back to the hotel room, i counted all the souvenirs which i've bought. this is to make sure i dint miss buying souvenirs for anyone, since i only have one more day to shop before leaving Japan


  1. Thanks for the souvenirs. The Japanese junkfood that you bought was so yummy and special. Love it!

  2. Yan, you're welcome! i love them too!!

Just a short post before the weekend arrives! =)

I've been drinking this collage drink for about a week already.....

It's from this brand, 满点肌, a product from Japan

10 bottles for the price of RM145

According to the SA, this collagen drinks will make your skin flawless after consuming for a period of time. And now after a week of consuming it, I did not see any significant improvement on my face. But one thing I realise is that my nose has become smoother and less blakcheads! Not sure is it the results of this drinks, but to me it's still a good news! =)

Anyway, my main purpose wasn't to buy this collagen drinks at first, I was looking for the eye mask actually, after reading the positive comments from Female magazine. 6 eye mask for the price of RM 155

The SA told me if I buy their collagen drinks, I'd entitled a 40% discount for the eye mask (yea, business tactics) So that's why I ended up buying the collagen drinks (which I never had before, cause I was worried…

Can't think of a title now...

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
