A Weekend in Tokyo

Saturday Oct 27th


Woke up early to prepare nasi goreng for our breakfast and egg sandwiches. We had our breakfast and got ready. We also make sure that Yume had enough food left for him while we were away.


Departed from our home by taxi to the bus station.


Hopped on the bus to Fukuoka Airport


Boarded on the air craft and up away leaving Kyushu Island behind.


Arrived at Haneda Airport Tokyo. Welcome to Honshu Island.


Catch a bus to Tokyo Disneyland from Haneda Airport. I had my sandwiches on the way to Disneyland. The rain was pouring from outside the window. Huhuhu.. definitely not a good experience. Too bad we bought the ticket earlier and we couldn't change the date. So here goes...

I had some sandwiches in the bus


Arrived at Disneyland. Surprisingly there were such a large number of people there even it was raining. We thought that there would be like less than a hundred people. Hihiks... Okie. Then we started exploring Disneyland.

It's raining... huhuhu

Pirates of Caribbean ride

Waiting for the ride

The train ride

Swiss Tree House.. my mummy got the same collections of the kitchenware in that cabinet.. hihiks

The Country Bears show... in Japanese.. huhuhu

Mark Twain's cruise ride.. cool!

Peter Pan's Flight... Luv this ride~

Haunted Mansion Holiday Nightmare ride.. not that scary~

In the Mickey Mouse and Friends theater

The show.. of course in Japanese.. ( tp I hentam nyanyi dlm English gak!! hihiks)

Cute and colourful Toon Town!! Lovely~

The rides~

I've been here several times!! - Shahril

At Mickey's House.. cute~ We luv it!!

The 'unpredictable ride'... awesome!!

World Bazaar

Again.. at World Bazaar

Yummy Mickey waffle.. definitely a must try!!

On your mark, get set.. EAT!!!


I'd been to Disneyland when I was young and I still remember the ride and the event they got in Disneyland. As I can recall (thanks to dad who loves to take photographs when I was young), there were not much differences between the Disneyland in US (at that time of course) and here in Tokyo except that it was translated in Japanese. Can you imagine the stories, the songs.. everything was in Japanese. It sounds funny cause I don't understand Japanese. Hihiks. Late afternoon the rain poured heavily and my mood went down with the pouring rain cause it meant that there will be no parade. And that day was supposed to be a special parade for Halloween. Huhuhu..


We decided to go to our hotel in Kawasaki. Before we headed back to our hotel, We bought some souvenirs from the World Bazaar and Bon Voyage, Disneyland souvenir shop.

Expensive... yet memorable~


We took a train from Maihama station to Tokyo station, then another train to Kawasaki station.


Arrived at Kawasaki Station. From the map, it took around 15 minutes walk to our hotel. We stopped at Mc Donalds to get our dinner before we continued walking to our hotel.


Checked-in to our hotel room and got ready for an early nap.


Sunday Oct 28


Checked-out from our hotel room and headed to Kawasaki Station.


We planned to go to La Fete Tama Outlet at Minami Osawa. So we took a train from Kawasaki Station and changed from JR Line to Keio Line at Sagamihara Station. Then we took a train straight to Minami Osawa Station.


Arrived at Minami Osawa Station and it took less than a minute walk to La Fete Tama Outlet. La Fete Tama Outlet was bigger than Tosu Premium Outlet and I just love it. We went from shop to shop until it's time to head to another place.

Shopping time~.... La Fete Tama Outlet

Okie.. next~


Enough of shopping at the outlet. It was time to have lunch. We were going to have lunch at Mahathir's Restaurant in Tokyo. So from Minami Osawa Station we went straight to Shinjuku Station and took another train to Nisyi-Shinjyuku Station.


It took about few minutes walk to the restaurant. Unfortunately, the restaurant was closed and will open at 1730. We were frustrated because we've went through the website and it stated there that the restaurant opens daily. Huhuhu.. We took a train back to Shinjuku to have our lunch cause Shahril had been to a Pakistani restaurant there.

The Malaysian Restaurant was closed~ huhuhu


Arrived Shinjuku Station. We searched the Pakistani restaurant called Karachi Restaurant in Shinjuku where they serve in buffet. So with some guide from Shahril's friend (Shahril made a call for a guide to the restaurant) and the shopkeeper, we arrived at the restaurant. We had our lunch and took a walk along Shinjuku city.

Somewhere in Shinjuku


From Shinjuku Station, We took a train to Shibuya Station. Shibuya is well known as one of the busiest city in the world. Just check out the zebra crossing. Yeah.. Everybody knew this, there's a scene in Tokyo Drift movie was filmed here in Shibuya. We took a walk for a while. There were like thousand of people, mostly youngsters here. I thought it was a great place to shop. We don't spend much time there cause we need to move to another place before we catch our flight back home.

Shibuya~ I luv this place!!


Hopped on a train from Shibuya Station to Hamamatsu-Cho Station.


From the station, we walked for around 20 minutes to Tokyo Tower. It was getting dark and we took few pictures before we left to the airport.

On the way to Tokyo Tower

Tokyo Tower.. it's getting dark!

Nearby Hamamatsu Station


From Hamamatsu-cho Station, we headed straight to Haneda Airport to catch our flight at 1840.


Boarded and flew back to Fukuoka.


Arrived at Fukuoka Airport and waited for a bus back to Saga Station.


Took a bus back to Saga.


Arrived at the bus station and took a taxi home.


Arrived home, greeted by Yume and collapsed!

I wonder what was in Yume's mind~

From Tokyo with love.. erkk from Saga lerr.. hihiks

beneath the heart,

Every single time you give a speech at a convention or maybe participate in lunch speak with associates, creating mention
of your twitter website link is just a slick way of persuading them to follow you.
You will not go far by indulging in random following.
It is well known that time is the essence and you need twitter followers now,
not tomorrow, not in a week, now.

Natural HGH delivers amazing effects on the body but then production of HGH dramatically decline as one reaches 30 resulting to changes
which characterize old age. Children with this syndrome experience chronic feelings of hunger and increased appetite.

HGH supplements are making it possible for adults to increase their HGH levels and reap
both the anti-aging benefits and enjoy increased muscle mass along with decreased body fat.

Use natural apple cider vinegar for more effective results.

The next available OTC was butaconazole, or Femstat.
