Time flies without me noticing. And right now it is time for me to shift again. I will be going off to the suburb of Tokyo, a place which looks more like a backdated Boonlay area. Sigh....
Anyway, sorry for being away and not replying to any messages. Was actually busy packing the stuff I have. I will be in for another few days of unpacking this coming weekend. Arghh!!!
Oh ya, obviously my address will be changed. So if you need to know, email me and I will let you know in the reply. But the handphone number is still the same!
Chinese New Year is coming....I have to thank my mum for sending me tons of 3-in-1 coffee/tea etc and Chinese New Year goodies.

I stayed at this lodge which is ran by a couple in their own home. Very nice place and feel so warm and cosy.
A Jaguar Bicycle....hmmm....
I made a trip up to the moutains to check out the sights.
Something necessary for a place where it snows very often.
The gloomy skies does not make things look good for a newbie snow moutain trekker.
I just had to make a snowman
The sun being smothered by the snow
So much snow, they had to pile them up into heaps.
The moutain with a little more sun.
I trekked into the marsh. Falling and slipping on the icy floors.
I even did my first cross country skiing. Either I am doing it wrongly, or it is really tiring. And obviously I fell.
I really wished I had a better camera with a good lens and probably a tripod. There were lots of ice formation and shadows to play with.
This may not look deep, but I was actually in knee deep
After all that walking and freezing, I went to the onsen. Ahhh....onsen. I even had the open air kind, where I soak in 43 degree water and looking out at the snowy views. A beer will reallyhave top it all off.
On my way back to Tokyo...2 .5 hours in the train.
