Hakone and Fujiyama

Me looking cute on the boat cruise at Lake Asahi.

Me, looking kinda confused.

Cable Car ride. Yipee.

Nature is sure beautiful up here.

Mount Fuji.

Mount Fuji without the snowcap.

Tokyo Disney (Wohoo!!!)

Mickey Mouse everywhere! Where am i?

Tokyo Disney, here I come!!

One day passport costs 5800 Yen.

Hunger pangs!

Fries, shrimp burger and a soft drink ... ahh, just like home.

Poor Mickey. Bit part of his ears off.

About to enter SPACE MOUNTAIN.

At the souvenir shop. This shot atken by Abe shows lotsa Chip and his Mom from Beauty and The Beast.

Cinderella's Castle at night. Just about to leave Disney (huhu) and hope I'll be there again someday.

First Stop: Ueno and Shinjuku

Oh great! What am I going to eat and how do you decipher these kanji characters? Well, didn't have anything on the menu.

This is Khairul San pouring the tea. Wearing a Yukata in a Ryokan in front of a shoji screen made from washed paper.

Me posing on front of the traffic in Shinjuku.

And a very tired feet throughout the day ... walking, walking and walking.

Tokyo Part 2

Here are some pics of the trip:

This picture was taken on the feeder flight from Penang to Singapore Changi airport. The flight was quite short but Singapore Airlines seemed to pull it well by serving a full meal. The contents of the meal includes braised chicken noodles, mushroom, chinese greens, a salad and a panna cotta. It was deleicious for a 1 hour feeder flight.

As you can see from the shadow, Singapore Airlines was operating a Boeing 747-412 series aircraft to Tokyo Narita that day. Abe took this pic while we were in the glide slope and about to land. Was just too good to not post. Love the pic!

E.T. Phone Home ... That'll cost you a million yes for the first few minutes :) I was desperately trying to call Mom telling I was safe in Tokyo already.

First stop of the day ... UENO. We travelled by the skyliner (as the Japs called it) to Old Tokyo called Ueno. The cost of the tickets were 1920Yen per person. Journey took about an hour.

And finally, the train. Off to Ueno. See you there!


This photo was taken on the 3rd of September 2007. I was on my way to Tokyo travelling with Singapore Airlines that day. Flew in style ... was in Raffles Class. Nice huge seats, lie flat bed seats and hmm ... the entertainment option was great but didn't see much of it as I needed my beauty sleep more than ever. Anyway, Singapore Airlines ... you're a great way to fly!
