Happy New Year everyone!
I’m so sorry for the long absence…the truth is I have some problem with my notebook ;(
I haven’t been able to use it for more than 3 weeks now…am typing this from my brother’s old desktop..
Anyway, I’m going to do a recap of 2011 just for my own record. Skip it if you’re not interested.
Saw the first sunrise of 2011 at the miura beach. Traveled by local train to Yamaguchi & Fukuoka.
CNBLUE ZEPP Fukuoka Concert. Packed up my 8 years Japan life in boxes.
Moved out of my apartment on 31st January.
Traveled to a few places in Japan. I call it my sayonara trip :p
I have not post those photos I took during this trip but you can read a summary on
the places I traveled to over here.
Ended my sayonara trip at Ise Jingu and took the night bus back to Tokyo from Nagoya.
Managed to catch a glimpse of early sakura. My flight back home was on the 13th of March and
the earthquake happened on 11th, 2 days before my flight.
I was alone, packing my stuff at my friend’s apartment…
it’s the biggest earthquake I’ve experienced.
Just relaxing at home. Morning walks. Ate a lot.
Took a short trip to Bangkok before starting work. My2nd time in Bangkok.
I really love Bangkok & Thailand. Hope I’ll have the chance to explore other parts of Thailand next time.
I’ve posted most of my Bangkok photos and you can find them over here.
Oh. And one of my post got featured on Freshly pressed.
It’s my first to be featured on Freshly pressed.
Thank you so much for the opportunity, wordpress staff :)
Started a new job…
Blog 2 years anniversary. I was so occupied by my job.
I only made 1 post in this month.
Organized a print giveaway for my blog’s 2 years anniversary.
To those who have participated. Thank you for showing me your support. ;)
Don’t worry if you haven’t receive anything from me.
My prints are ready to be send out but having a full time job makes it a little bit difficult for me
to go to the post office. I’m so so so sorry for the delay ;(
I promise I’ll send them out once I have time to go to the post office.
Reached 500th post in this month.
Got stucked in the train for 2 hours!? on my birthday. lol
Treated myself a trip to Seoul to see my friends & attended CNBLUE concert.
I’m not a k-pop fan but I like CNBLUE. Also went to a 2 days 1 night trip to Melaka on Xmas day.
btw. Melaka is also a registered UNESCO world heritage sites along with Georgetown in Penang.
I have 7 rolls of film from my Korea trip & 4 rolls of film from my Melaka trip to show you guys ;)
I guess that’s all for 2011.
How was your 2011?
2011 was a year filled with changes for me….
I didn’t blog much in 2011 but in 2012, I wanna blog more. I will try to blog more ;p
Anyway, just wanna say thank you to all of you who are reading this &
I hope everyone have a great year ahead.
I wish for a year filled with peace, joy & happiness!

More pictures of my journey to see the first sunrise in 2011 :)
This is the platform of Keiyu line (京急線) Shinagawa station （品川駅）.
Love how they decorated the train with New Year graphics :) Isn’t that bunny cute!?
My friend and I shared some kara age (唐揚げ・fried chicken) while waiting for the sunrise.
After waiting for some time…the sun finally shows its face :)
I’m not sure what time it happened!? :p
coz’ I was too excited shooting away that I totally forgot to check the time…
Actually it’s my first time seeing the “first sunrise” （初日の出）.
Also my first time seeing sunrise at the beach.
It was really nice.
Oh. btw. To go see the first sunrise of the year is something Japanese do during New Year.
What kind of tradition do you have in your country during New Year !?
Hatsuhinode (初日の出) is the first sunrise of the year. Before sunrise on January 1, people often drive to the coast or climb a mountain so that they can see the first sunrise of the new year.
