秋分の日


昨日は秋分の日だった。
Yesterday was the Autumnal Equinox Festival

で、授業がないんだ。
and no classes were commenced on that day

それで、先生が迎えに来てくれて、一緒に横浜に観光しました。
So I met up with teacher and we went down to Yokohama City

横浜と聞いたら、思い出すのはやっぱり観覧車だ。
Yokohama always reminds me of the FERRIS WHEEL

横浜に着いてからちょっと赤レンガを見て、それから「あかいくつ」という観光バスに乗って横浜の周りに見に行っちゃた。
When we reached there, we first went to the Red Brick Building and then hopped onto the City Bus for a city tour.

1時間もかかっちゃったよ。
The city tour even took us 1 hour.

その後、観覧車に乗って、昼食を食べに行った。
After that, we rode the Ferris Wheel and then for lunch.

4時ごろに東京の高田馬場までに行って、アザムと一緒にタイレストランで夕食を食べた。
Around 4pm, we went down to Tokyo and met up with Azam for dinner.

6時ごろに先生が私を日吉まで送ってくれました。
Around 6pm, teacher sent me back to my dorm.

本当に優しい先生ですね。
He's a really nice teacher, isn't he?!..

昨日の休みはこういうふうに過ごしました。
Soo..Yeah!..This is how I spent my holiday yesterday.

Satisfactory Dinner

First ever proper dinner after 8 days in Japan!

It's not like I haven't been eating properly but this is the 1st ever dinner OUT from dorm!~haha

Here we are, together with the RAs/Master students in the same dorm!

From LEFT to RIGHT, MAYUMI-san(JP), NICO(France), TAKA-san(JP), Kit(HK), ME!

Great OKONOMIYAKI served in that small home-shop and my belly is sticking out now!~haha

What's interesting about this shop is that the owner takes pictures of every customers who came here for his OKONOMIYAKI and he collects them in a file!
We're in the 7th FILE!~AWESOME

Placement Test

Woke up as early as 6am, which is 5am back in Malaysia and left around 7:10am.

Haven't been able to sleep well since the day I arrived.

So reached the campus around 8:15am and had the test at 9am.

Here's how the hall looks like..

So JAPAN!~haha..Seen this sort of hall for test in Japanese Drama but never seen or entered a real one before....and here I am!

No preparation and nothing for this test and all I can say is that I forgotten lots of KANJIs!!GOSH~

After this test, waited until 3pm for MEXT Orientation!

I just feel so pressure whenever I mention MEXT!~Arghh...

Anyways, should be happy cos no class tomorrow!~YAY!

Campus Tour

Today has been the 7th day, here in Japan!

Whole lots of experience!

Had this Campus Tour thingy this morning and I would say this University is pretty awesome.

First, the 5th floor of the South School Building overlooks Tokyo Tower!

Pretty NICE uh!

Another thing is that there's one building, if I'm not mistaken, it's a student lounge?!..Anyways, it looks so like a HAUNTED MANSION!~haha

No pictures though..Will try to get one the next time if I ever had a chance to go there again!

It's still an Orientation Week and tomorrow we've got PLACEMENT TEST!

No preparation or anything and I'll just see what happens tomorrow!~lol

Signing off for now!~Bye

Oh Yeah!Before saying GOOD-BYE, just wanna say HAPPY Mid-Autumn Day!? or Happy Mooncake Festival Day?!..

Ok, whatever!..I so wanna eat moooncake now!

Orientation in Mita Campus

Today is the 1st day of Orientation and it's so different from the one I experienced back in UM!...This is so much simpler and relaxing...

It started at 9.30am and ended at 12.30pm.

After that, went to a RAMEN Shop nearby the campus for lunch.
Had this SHIO RAMEN for 700yen.


Discovered this when I finished eating.
JUNG MIN of SS501 came here before for RAMEN!~WOW!!

After lunch, took the train back to HIYOSHI and went to get some stuff from DAISO and also some Supermarket along the street back to dorm.

Also, I got myself a PASMO card which I think it'll be useful since I'll be using the train everyday now.

With this, I don't have to buy tickets from the machine but only reload it when it runs out of credit.

Pretty convenient huh!

Oh Yeah!..I bought healthy food today like banana, grapes, yogurt and dango?!..lol

I think I need to eat healthily in order not to fall sick as the medical bill here is superbly expensive!

So..LET'S EAT HEALTHILY!

その後、口座を開いて、ちょっとお買い物に行っちゃた。
Then, to open a bank account and after that did some shopping (not clothing but groceries) ~haha

それから、帰って来たら、コンビニで買った銅鑼焼きと野菜ジュースは昼ごはんにした。
When I got back, it was already lunch time and I had Dorayaki and Vegetable juice bought from the convenient store or so called "KONBINI" here.

で、今晩は大好きなパスタとハムバグをたべるよ。

The Journey begins...

This is where the real journey begins..

My very first time all alone here in Japan..

Reached NARITA AIRPORT at 7am and took the 7.33am express train to Musahikosugi and changed to the local train to Hiyoshi and then taxi to my dormitory. The whole journey took me about 3 hours.

I would say it's something I've never done before alone and I didn't realise I'm actually so brave and totally did not had that little fear feeling at all?!..I still cannot believe now that I'm sitting in my room typing this now!lol

I wonder why I'm not afraid and I think I'm crazy!

I still couldn't believe and have been asking myself since just now in the afternoon.

Anyways, here's a pic of my dormitory

Pretty comfortable actually...
