本州の旅 - パート1 (part 1)

14th Mar 2007, Fair and a little cloudy

Reached 成田空港(Narita Airport) around 4 plus in the afternoon, and we're greeted by the chilly winds of Honshu. Our tour guide, ウオン-さん (our dear funny Mr. Ricky Wong a.k.a Wong-san, even though he called himself Ong-san.... =='' ), quickly brought us to the bus after having a taste of the cold Winter/Spring air.

After a short ride, we're at the Narita Marroad Hotel where we would be staying for a night.


Narita Marroad Hotel



Trying to be funny... Taken in a rush outside our hotel..



It's interesting how they designed their carpark...



A peek of the airport from our hotel room...


After getting our keys and bringing all our luggages and stuffs into our respective rooms, we set off for Aeon. Aeon is one of the main shopping malls in Narita, quite a big one too. With Jusco as its main departmental store and having numerous interesting shops, Aeon is a shopper's paradise.


Aeon Narita - Judging by these bright daylight photos, it's pretty obvious these photos were not taken by me... HAHA...


And my speaking in broken Japanese started here.. (Why broken? That's 'coz I had to process what I wanted to say in my brain before saying out loud, and my speech went kinda erm.. choppy? Thank God the Japanese knew what I was saying.. Haha.. ><''') Due to my "extreme violentness", the heel of my right boot went kinda detached from the main part of the boot and it was left kinda hanging when I bent it in a certain way (I've no idea how I did that...).. This also left a weird bump in the sole of the boot and it was painful wearing it.. I'd another pair of shoes (my Mum's) but it wasn't enough to keep the cold away... So I had no choice but to buy a pair of new boots on the 1st day..

Initially, the salesperson (I guess he's also the owner..) was blabbering something quite fast which I couldn't really make out (think he's asking if we need help and etc), and my aunt and I kept quiet, minding our own business... LOL.. So the salesperson asked (still in Japanese... O.o''') if we're from Korea (?!? Hahhh?? What makes him think we're Koreans?? *Imagining self in a hanbok...* O.o).. Luckily, I caught what he said this time and told him nope, we're from Singapore.. And was asking him what's the equivalent size (S, M and L) for a size 5 foot.. So he told me it was around size S, and I told him it was a little small... so he suggested size M... and yaddah yaddahh.. (then he continued telling me the boots i chose is very good, got cushion.. yaddah yaddah.. in half Japanese and half English.. HAHAHA... The boots is indeed really good.. It's really comfy, can last my violentness, can roughly keep the cold away and it had a nice stylish shape and color... Made in japan.. Quality goods.. hahahahha ^.^ Not cheap, but good.)



Nice red boots...


We continued our shopping trip at a drug store (or pharmacy) where I bought 2 packets of chilli bath salts for Alina, and Jusco to buy our dinner (2 bento sets) and some cosmetic stuff.. Oh yah! I didn't realise 14th Mar is White Day until I saw shops with big big notices, promoting gifts for White Day... (Don't know what's White Day?? How could you??? Guys, this's a day for u to give gifts to girls whom you like! Click here to know more about White Day, guys...) Time's running out and we went back to our hotel~


I think everyone will have their own yukata shot when he/she is in Japan???? Okay, I looked kinda zonkish here.. Zzzz time soon...



The famous Japanese auto toilet, erm, butt washer...



Had a laugh at the English translation... Get what it's trying to say? Anyone??


Ok, continue part 2 some other time...

Anyway, Julienne has received her very belated birthday gift!! Hope to get a pic from her after she gets a new camera!.. (I've taken some pictures of the gift.. but.. for some reasons I dunno.. I deleted them.. O.O'')
