20.12.2013 | 京阪の秋(三)

[Volume 8 Issue 12, #1840]
計埋呢一篇, 大大話話都寫咗三篇遊記喇, 其實自己好俾心機寫㗎, 唔知道大家欣賞唔欣賞?? 尤其我嘅遊記係以時間同活動為出發點, 可能大家需要啲咩實用旅遊貼士嘅話, 就無法從中得益喇, 儘其量都係提到去過嘅地點可作參考啫.. 所以話, 讀萬卷書不如行萬里路, 大家如果有機會有能力可以去旅行嘅話, 親身體驗異國風情, 就係最好不過喇.. 雖然我呢個trip係好短, 不過都叫做去過大阪同京都啦, 哈哈!! 今日寫一半大阪一半京都, 祝大家有個愉快嘅週末!! :) 
including this post, i have already written a total of three travelogue for my japan trip lately.. i certainly put lots of effort in writing these posts, i wonder if you also like reading them?? especially with what i have written were all based on chronological activities, you may not find them useful should you need any travel tips, the most one could get perhaps is referencing the places i've been.. hence, like the chinese say, walk a thousand miles is always better than read a thousand books, if you have the opportunity and affordability and ability to go travel, this is the best way to appreciate the different cultures of the world.. though my trip was very short, at least i can say i've been to ōsaka and kyōto, haha!! today's write-up is a mixture of both the cities, wishing everyone a wonderful weekend ahead :)

    1. #A I like to take train sometime (only on the time when I wasn't rushing to go anywhere) But if go travel I would take some sweet time to try all their transport to gain different experience, like the HK ding ding car, I kept on ride from this destination to that destination, firstly the ride ticket is pretty cheap and it's very slow, can take picture around easily!!! =]

      Fugu reminded me of an English movie which I watched long time ago.. About this man who wanted to kill his wife becoz he has another woman.. So he fed his wife fugu's something (blood or what, I forgot), and his wife really choked to death, kekekeke...

  3. How very true! Travelling gives the first-hand experiences that one can;t get from books or watching TV - precious...but not many can afford it.

    1. I'm very sua-koo (kuno/jungle people) though. I can't seem to appreciate those Japanese or Korean noodles very much. Ok, don't mind eating but I can't say I like them more than our local noodle dishes.

      Delete
    2. I'm kinda wary of the 'sweetness' of the soup - maybe MSG, maybe not. But I was taken aback when I saw on tv that some of the special noodles come with soup boiled for hours with beef or pork - little wonder they taste so good!

  4. Lovely mixture of scenery photos and photos of SK. Me, likey. ^^

    Can't comment much on each photo. No need to, because SK has described everything so eloquently. :)

    2. well, the more I read about them, the more I felt I should make it next year. I guess it should be safe and free of the intoxicating air.

    3. very true, even though I have read about a certain place, I still need to visit it to have the feel of the real thing. Good that you are enjoying your travels. I always do that.

  11. The tram, reminds me of the one I took in Norway, not modern but very interesting! Can see lots of nice scenery in a slow way right?

    And that 天龙寺 is very unique, surrounded with all autumn leaves, really very nice la! And the temple, looks so serene! Yea, next time go with another entrance, then take photos again! ;) (So that means you plan to go Japan again huh? ^^)

    2. Shinshaibashi! I remember this place! So happening and beautiful with all neon billboards, and I remember that shop with the giant crab! I also took photo of it when I was there last time, I also remember I saw a big poster of the movie 2012 there!

      Delete
    3. The ramen you ate in picture P looks very long! I think this bowl of ramen is perfect for a cooling weather that time right? So did you eat the rame with the loud slurrrp sounds? Hehehe...

      Hmm how I wish to be able to dine in those traditional 居酒屋 too! Saw alot through TV but havent got a chance yet.. :(

    1. For me I like to read especially Japan's travelogue, never ever get bored over it. About the way how you describe precisely on each photos really take much of your effort doing it. Thanks alot SK. So hope you don't mind that I've been commenting on each photos of it. Those photos really reminds me of my previous visit. As the memories keep refreshing and not faded away....Miss Japan very deeply.

    2. Besides catching up your post over here, I do clicked "like" most of your Japan photos from FB....Hehehe....

    2. Your photo #D, you looked like OLAF from Frozen. My son took a same post just like you did here... Hands widely open and putting on a smiling face...

    3. Aww, you don;t have to feel awkward with what you're wearing. If you didn't mentioned, we didn't even realized about it too. There are guys wearing just like you did, the inner checkered shirt a bit longer than the sweater. Ok lar, nothing weird or not nice as long as you feel comfortable. You're looking good over there. Me and the rest also wish to see more of faces in the photos here.

    4. Shinsaibashi is not a place to be missed out. How can I forget the huge crab of Kani Doraku..We snap some photos here too. Crowded with people. But we also take as much photo as we like...no one cares about it. I still remember here, 2hrs of shopping and eating here really not enough lar... Luckily I came here twice. Very lucky because my secodn trip which was to Hokkaido and the last day flew back to Osaka for a day free and easy day. Some of them would love to go US and Disney. But we went there before already so we opt to a free and easy day at Shinsaibashi. Happy lar me, I got a few nice ladies accessories from there... not cheap though almost the cheapest for a simple ribbon was about RM30, but the quality is good. So I still don't care so much afterall I don't always come here again. spend about RM200 here buying nice ribbons, earrings and bracellets for myself. hehehe....

      Delete
    5. Hahaha, not forget a huge Uniqlo building at shinsaibashi, 2-3 levels? Nice and comfort jackets, inner wears, mens shirt to work - wrinkle free.

    6. I reckon too, must try eating ramen during cold weathers eh. I missed the feeling too. I bet their yakisoba and okonomiyaki taste very delicious too. More alike the one I fried on my own. Muahaha - "thick face". In previous post about okonomiyaki, there are two types one from Hiroshima and another one which is the normal one from Osaka. Hiroshima's okonomiyaki is larger than osaka ones. For me, which place they are originated from also never mind, as long as it taste delicious.

    7. Can imagine they put lots of octopus and bonito flakes...yumz...

  22. a) I really enjoyed the slow train ride to Kyoto and Nara as we could see the farms & green hills with little cottages sprawled all over. I must go there again and again!

    1. b) What a lovely photo and it looked like a beautiful painting with a myriad of colours. It reminds me of the artist's palette of autumn colours! Autumn is indeed the most colourful seasons of the year and every Japanese would choose that season as the best!

    2. c) So Thambee loves the Tenru-ji! The folks really invested lots of time and money to create lovely landscapes with plants and tiny pebbled paths in various patterns. Art is the way of their lives in Japan.

      Delete
    3. d) Thambee you looked so happy stretching your hands so wide! Even posing with a door could please you! How nice SK!

      Delete
    4. e) Honestly I learned many new Japanese words from your blog posts as you took great pains to translate them all. Now I know that my favourite Japanese arch is called Tori.

    5. f) 500 Yen for entrance fee is very cheap la for a world class historical site. I always had to pay very expensive rates to climb the mountains in China. They cost over RM150 to 200 per entry!

    6. g) Wow! Wow! So merah! So orange! So canggih! Thambee should have worn red & orange to blend into the photos.

    7. h) The colour is so unique. It is maroon! I can even imagine them beautifully with my eyes closed.

    8. i) Here you really looked like Nobita Nobi if you wore a glasses too! You purposely pulled your shirts down like a fashionista.
      Better pull your pants down la. muahahahahahahaha

    9. j) Oh you guys really headed back to Osaka and stayed at the hotel near Shinsaibashi!!!! I loathed that location as it is a bit out.

    10. k) 3160 YEN is very cheap per head and you were lucky to have an expert friend who knew how to get the best deals.

      I just googled the exchange rates and got a big shock to see that the YEN has dropped a lot since my trip in 2012!!!

    11. l) I wonder if that places is crowded with Westerners at night?? The young folks there loved anything American.

    12. m) DOTONBORI is really my all time favourite place. Just the name itself could light up my face! I went there 3 nights and stood in the middle to admire the crazee neon lights blinking and flashing away.

      Delete
    13. n) Like you, I also snapped plenty of such 3-D ads using figurines. They are so unusual and alive to attract everyone's attention.
      The Japanese folks are so aggressive in advertising that they even stationed their waiters and waitresses outside their business premises to lure customers by screaming their lungs and waving all the menus! So gila and fun!

      Delete
    14. o) OMG!!! You ate PUFFER FISH!!!! Dei your face will bloat soon and your skin will look like puffer fish too! Muahahahahahaha

      Delete
    15. p) Thambee dei you looked so innocent and cute to clamp up your ramen like that. That wasn't the roadside stall along the five foot ways!

      Delete
  23. In picture G, the right hand SK looks like taking MV or Poster for 2014 Calendar. Nice!

    It is nothing wrong to show your checker shirt longer than your sweater. It is a trend of latest fashion. I taught my Jin Jin to wear something like this.

    ReplyDelete
  24. When I saw that picture you wore sweater over your checker shirt, I wanted to praise you for your sense of fashion. It wasn't weird at all.

    It is true that everyone will look puffy in winter clothes, it happened to Yannie too, when Yannie was in Taiwan.

    ReplyDelete
  25. By the way, the ramen picture is killing me softly, looks so yummy to me. Osaka is such a cool place, I must go there one day.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Good morning. You sure snapped a lot of photos. All in soft copy ke? Got grab the photo book deal last year or not. Maybe its timr to get these printed out. Sad if these photo gone
