I'm back from Japan.
how sad to be back :(
as usual, i'm alwayz having holiday blues no matter what time of the year and it's the worst when i just got back.
on a lighter note, i really miss my mum and her boiled soup alot. (i have boiled soup almost everyday of my life for dinner whenever i'm home)
i miss the smell of my bolster too!
i'm doing up a Japan 12 days Travaganza starting from tomorrow.
I wanted to start today but it's getting late and i'm still quite tired from the flight.
Have been walking and walking like i'm charged with Energizer everlasting batteries for the past 12 days, waking up between 7am-10am every morning and sleeping at 1am every night.
I'm so happy doing this cuz i'm doing it for shopping and sight seeing!
Ok, i have lots to update about this wonderful trip and this terrific place.
Let me get started with the stuff that i've brought back from Japan!!!
i will state the prices of some of the stuff i bought cuz i still have the price tags and bills for some of them, for my own reference and for your info.

The 2 camis that are still wrapped up are from Uniqlo, they're having a sale and it only costs 500yen for one.
i love the strking bandeau bra, i think it's very Ganguro.
i didn't buy too many clothes this time round cuz they were quite unsuitable, most of the clothes in the shops were mostly coats and long sleeved which are too hot for Singapore's climate.
and they were mostly too big for me!!
(and i thought Jap girls were petite in size like me, but i was so wrong, they're mostly quite tall and well built!)
Accessories and toys from Capsule station. (they're so cute!)
We found this Capsule station just before the entrance to Universal Studios, Osaka.
and each turn costs 200yen.
Bing surprised me with this pair of lovely hp straps from Disneysea while waiting for me as i was thrown down viciously from the Tower of Terror.
Mobile phones, ain't they pretty?
They're ultra slim and so cool!
it's a pity, they cannot be used in Singapore at all, there isn't any slot for sim cards to be inserted. *sobz*
a pretty luggage from Kyoto shopping street ~2500yen.
Umbrella from Shinjuku.
It was raining cats and dogs and the temperature dropped drastically, this umbrella saved my day!
Now, here comes my STAR BUY!
SONY CYBERSHOT T20 in Rose Pink!
i love this camera to bits and T20, which looks very similar to T10 was launched in Japan just last week and i bought it 2 days before it was launched!
i'm really pleased with it, pictures are so sharp and it can capture night scenes very well.
It costs me 39,000 yen, with a FREE 1GB memory stick!!
now, you can call this a great deal!
i'm not sure but i don't think this model is launched in Singapore yet.
The tripod stand was bought separately for 2100yen.
Some receipts that i happened to find in my luggage.
That's all for now, i'm dead beat.
Good nite peeps!
