So, where you been/going? Feel free to post pics etc...

I'm off to Japan in May to catch Perfume and Ayumi Hamasaki in concert. This will be my second trip to Tokyo, with my only previous non-UK holiday being France about 10 years ago.

Couple of random pics from last year:

I wanna ask, where is that lake from? I wonder if all Japan's lake are that calm and relaxing. Especially with sakura (is that sakura?).

Hopefully the Japan embassy in my country allows me to apply permanent residential in Japan. If i study there, might it increase my chance to apply one? (out of topicness sry)

Speaking of female groups/bands lols. Im in love with TNX's groups. Especially Canary Club and THE Possible. Blame me for being a lolicon. I don't consider myself as one thou xD

Yeah, I like Perfume Smile But they are the closest thing I'd come to an idol-type group. The rest of my musical interests are more the m-flo side of things.

I really can't remember where it was. I know I was looking for Yoyogi kōen, and ended up there, so... it would be somewhere near Shinjuku. Yes, those are sakura. I went right in the middle of sakura season last time. Perfect lake shot there. All the parks I went to were really well kept, and quite secluded from the noise of the city, so very peaceful.

Holy that makes me wanna go Japan even more. Now I must get as much credit as possible to be able to be chosen as an Exchange Student to Japan. I think most likely I'd be chosen but I do have some bad records in my school ><. Wish me luck lols

And here in Malaysia, every street is dirty, smoky and full of trash everywhere. And all I can find in Malaysia is over-corrupted politics here. Moreover, the Malay politics here are quite the racists. Me being a Chinese can't stand the sight of it. Sure blame me for being a racists towards Malays now, but thats cause my father influenced me ><.

Wow thats earlier than I thought. Well I have to finish high school here first. Then take 1 year Japanese school here. Get a cert for Japanese language and apply for a college/U in Japan. Most likely I'd be looking for a music college/U. So it might be in between end of 2011 - early 2012.


This is so out-of-topic lols. So Im gonna keep myself on-topic.
Hey Matt snap more pics from ur next Japan tour ok? I wanna see Japan's environment xD. And the gals there too xD

The one thing I regret from last year was not taking enough photos. I'll be taking them every 5 minutes this time Laugh

One more. This was taken on the bridge by the Shinjuku bus terminal

that's cool, I thought your high school offered Japanese though, but I realized that studying Japanese in high school is a rare entity

Well too bad for me that im studying in a Private school. If it was International school, most likely I'd be able to attend Japanese language classes (so far, all my friends who studied in an International School in Malaysia said they do offer Japanese language class). Too bad for me. And damn it, the Japanese school (Teikyo University) needs me to pass my high-school exams to enter. Now i really have to wait until early 2012. Oh well, life is never easy.
