am finally back ^-^

2 weeks - is a long time. due to lack of cable tv, was not updated of news outside of japan. hot on japanese tv was pm koizumi and his visit to the war shrine. it's all over the news. on talk shows, in prime news.

didnt even know us airlines implemented no liquid onboard the cabin. luckily coboypb and i arrived at the airport way too early, we heard announcement of the ban and squeezed our moisturizers, hand cream, toothpaste, hair gel, etc into our check-in luggage.

meanwhile, trying to cope with the humid weather here. though tokyo and even hokkaido were hot, they werent as humid as here. i'm actually spotting a nice little tan :)

anyhow, i have concluded after this trip - i am officially sick of tokyo and hokkaido liao. perhaps due to the fact i travelled to both places twice this year.

next - kansai and perhaps okinawa

saw in cat magazines featuring cat-related places and shops there!

well, maybe will plan a trip in next year autumn (cannot go to kansai in summer, will die from the humidity)

dont know about coboypb, but i realised from previous trips that travelling with only 1 partner can be quite tiring and monotonous. cos you have to face the same person for more than 15 hours a day! dont get me wrong, not that i dont enjoy her company, but more people means can take time to rest, more ideas, varied companionship.

so i guess a group of 4 is a nice number.

coboypb suggested i should organize a cat tour to tokyo and hokkaido since i knew the area quite well. hahaha... any takers?

You're back! You're back!

Cat tour... wow. I didn't see many cats, the times I was in Tokyo... then again I was in the wrong areas ie Shibuya.

They're almost everywhere in Kyoto and Nara though, if I remember correctly.

You must have had so much fun!!!

I borrowed this new book from the library today: 貓島.座間味──沖繩貓生活物語. Cool pixs of cats. Think you might have a better chance of cat-spotting :) check out the url for info on the book.

Sounds like you guys had fun nevertheless. I think travelling with someone is a bit risky sometimes, cos being friends and meeting up for dinners/shopping is way different from travelling and living with them, esp if it's a long time.

travelling with just one other partner can be tiring/boring. Even if it's your loved ones eg mother/hubby. I had arguments with my mother, who went China with me :P I think 3-4 is a nice number.

Having too many ideas and too many opinions can also become troublesome. Sometimes that's the reason I prefer to shop or go out alone. Get things done much more efficiently. ;p ok, so maybe holidays dont' centre on efficiency. Hee
