Hokkaidō Trip Summer 2014 - Overall Preview
好喇, 如果閣下有在facebook上跟我嘅話, 應該都知道上個星期我身在日本啦.. 呢一次係去北海道感受她的夏天, 因為冇直飛班機, 所以就由吉隆坡飛去名古屋, 然後在搭國內航機飛去北海道.. 去過嘅城市包括名古屋, 札幌, 旭川, 富良野, 美瑛, 函館以及小樽.. 呢個旅程為期八日七夜, 如果你有興趣知道, 花費在RM4500左右.. 今日呢篇文只係一個總括預覽, 呢一個月內我都會繼續寫比較詳細嘅遊記(因為長篇幅問題, 所以決定只以英語寫作, 中文讀者敬請留言).. 所以呢, 如果閣下係唔想被我啲遊記轟炸嘅話, 可以乘機休息一個月哦, 呵呵!! :p
okay, i think if you have been following my facebook, you probably knew i actually travelled to Japan last week.. it's a trip to Hokkaidō during its summer, as there is no direct flight so we flew to Nagoya for a stopover and then took a domestic flight to Hokkaidō.. among the cities visited were Nagoya, Sapporo, Aashikawa, Furano, Biei, Hakodate and Otaru within this 8D7N trip, in about RM4500 (if you are interested to know).. this post is just an overall preview and i shall be writing more posts with details throughout this month (and due to the length of the posts, i decide to write only in English).. if you are bothered with being bombarded with (my style of) travelogue, you can happily take a break this month, hehe!! :p

    9. Please have a heart & I hope when one has seen photos in FB earlier, will not come here and leave thoughtless comments again about one's opinion. Have we ever thought how our opinions made public will trigger untoward disappointment when those guys read this blog's comments? It was being uttered yesterday and today again. Alamak! Tsk Tsk!

      In the past, I have seen enough childish blog wars in other blogs where readers passed hurtful remarks and accusations onto others. So we better write relevant comments with respect and positive opinion exactly like the way we want others to write for us. Just my 2 cents.

    10. Princess ...me too..i want to feel you too...oopps...

    13. Chris, TM yesterday said we doing E-Flirts here ahh.. How? Need to go somewhere else or not? Scared kena halau leh..

      Delete
    14. My mood is not serious at all but rather shocked to read the remarks until the blog owner has censored it. You always like to mimic a sotong! For once, be a Spider Man & see faraway... Zap! Zap! Muahahaha

      Delete
    15. Hello, you may flirt here, there and everywhere, no problem. Always welcome lah. We just don't pass negative remarks on the people in the photos.

      Delete
    16. Hahaha..I don't flirt la.... just talking cock here.

      Delete
    17. Agree also with what TM said there.

      Sometimes in our zeal to spout out all sorts of things and give our opinions, we don't stop to consider how others would feel.

      Anay, point noted. Will be more mindful in future. Let's all be. ;-)

  34. Nice views from the Goryokaku tower and Hakodate peak. But your photo didn't show any night views leh , all day views. I am sure the night views must be awesome. So, you went hiking on this day?
    haha... nice to sit on a tram. I thought it's history already and replaced by MRT or LRT.

  35. Day 6 - oh no... wow...you are having live sashimi! My ...... that;s a dream ! I always envy those flers who caught the fishes, squids, fish eggs .... etc, fresh from the sea and ate it immediately by dipping in wasabi. *jealous*

  36. The night shopping street at Tanukikoji looks great. Reminds of Orchard Road again ...LOL. SO, did you try on the ferris wheel ? FIng Fing climbed so high up ... later fall down then you know ..!

    ReplyDelete
  37. The Otaru place looks more like a small peaceful town. Probably it's famous for the canal since you mentioned it there. The buildings looks old, I guess it's likely pre-war buildings. So, what the Otaru music box plays? Jap's opera or Sakura?

    ReplyDelete
  38. There seems a lot of towers in Sapporo and you can't resist to pose with your trademark pose again. How come never tak pixs with Sapporo kawaii girls?

  39. Love the ramens!! Wonderful!! These are the authentic Japanese ramens unlike in most of the places here, raman is about nissin noodles in miso soup. I always like 'cha siu' or that meat placed on the ramen together with the egg, where the yolk is soft and eatery. You have to eat it loud.... *slurp*

  40. So, you are on a makan spree in Hokkaido!! Love the tidbits there especially the bbq corns in a cold weather. Seems like there are a lot of products made with milk there.

  42. So nice that SK always traveled to Japan, this time is Hokkaido. Again, you were taking Fing Fing with you, and he could enjoy the trip, the ride, the fun, the joy and the food together with Papa SK. Jealous la!

    Anyway, back to the pictures, wow! So good that SK was invited home for dinner at Japanese friend's house. I can see the dinner is really awesome. Home cook Japanese cuisine must be much better than outside food.

    Besides, I am drooling at those Ramen pictures. I love soupy Ramen.

    Tomorrow, Yannie must pray more to ancestor to ask for popi popi JAMY can go to Japan for holidays.
