Nara Day 3: Todai-ji, Cheeky Deer & Fall Foliage

My 2016 Japan travelogue so far:
Osaka Day 1: Ana Crowne Plaza & Sennichimae Doguyasuji
Osaka Day 2: Osaka Station, Kuromon Market & Dotonbori

Beware: VERYYYYYY long post. Hehehe

My day 3 in Japan coincide with Japan’s Labour Thanksgiving Day (23rd November). It’s a public holiday in Japan. To escape major jam (though I did not witness any), I decided to visit Nara.

On this day I woke up even earlier. 6.10am yo!

Breakfast In Osaka
Ma sandwiches @ 258 yen from 7-11 and sencha from hotel. I’ve heard sandwiches from Japan’s convenience stores are yum especially egg salad sandwich. My threesome are egg salad, tuna and ham. No doubt everything’s yum but the egg salad really is in a league of its own. Blown away! *BAM*

Year Of Rooster 2017 @ Kuan Yin Temple, Klang

Happy Chinese kok kok kok New Year!

I’m not too late in wishing you all, right? Fact is I didn’t have CNY mood a week ago. But today, I’m super excited. Maybe because we’re celebrating Jade Emperor’s birthday midnight tonight and I will get to eat tonnes of angku kueh. Hehe

I visited the century old Kuan Yin temple in Klang today. Here are some photos which I took at the temple:

Incense Sticks @ Kuan Yin Temple, Klang
Incense sticks or joss sticks. When you have extra stick(s), put it here. I never understand why the temple never provide the exact number of sticks. There’s always extra one or two. Hmm…

Osaka Day 2: Osaka Station, Kuromon Market & Dotonbori

Check out Osaka Day 1: Ana Crowne Plaza & Sennichimae Doguyasuji if you have not.

Alert! Very long post…

I woke up rather early on day 2 in Osaka. 6.30am to be precised. For breakfast, I ate sweet potato bread from Takaki Bakery (bought from 7-11 the previous day; so yummy!) and sencha (complimentary from hotel). The best part? Enjoying the morning window view while having breakfast. At 11am, we ride the free Ana shuttle bus to Osaka Station.

Dojima River @ Osaka
This is Dojima River. Taken from bus. If we were to walk to subway, this is one of the routes.

My 2016

Periwinkles & Pandan

2016 have been good to me.

Mmm let me rephrase it: I work hard to make 2016 a good year to live in. At the end of the day, I think I succeeded.

I’m calmer, more positive and have rebounded with new energy. Not all 365 days are bed of roses and I try not to let negativity affect me too badly or deeply. Sometimes it does affect me more than I could handle (I’m only human) and giving myself a pep talk is the best way to bounce back. I’m grateful for all the ups and downs I experienced this year. From it, I learned a lot.
