Updates for September


Some updates for the month of September.

Would have wanted to make this a secret but it won’t be fun ^^;

Anyway, I’ll be heading to Japan for vacation from the 12 September all the way till 28 September. A whole 16 days!

This marks my first trip to Japan alone (Been there with my family once back in 1996 but can’t remember much.). Yes, I’m feeling both excited and nervous! Excited as I’m finally stepping foot into the sacred land of the Anime/Manga/Otaku/Ero world and the possibility of meeting a whole lot of people. Nervous as I hope I’ll be able to communicate with the Japanese people (Especially if I got lost somewhere.. Hope not!)

So, what will I be doing there then?

A whole lot actually, but I don’t really have a itinerary planned out yet. Here’s just a short list.

  • Visit Akihabara, Nakano Broadway and Otome Road (No kidding!)
  • Spend a night in one of those capsule hotels & manga cafes
  • Meido Cafes! Meido Cafes!
  • Shibuya, Ginza, Ikebukuro etc.
  • Visit the other touristy places
  • Figure Photoshoot!
  • Take the Shinkansen (Bullet Train)
  • Visit Kyoto/Osaka/Nara via transportation medium mentioned above (If within budget!)
  •  Tokyo Game Show!
  • School Girls!

There are actually a whole lot more to list down, but these are the current ones I can think of at the moment. Attend an idol event maybe? Join Danny Choo of Dannychoo.com in his stormtrooping/Darth Vader-ing “raids” ? Any suggestions?

For those wondering about my accommodation, it’s been taken care of. Will be staying at my friend’s place during the trip so I’ll be able to keep you guys updates as well. ^^;

For those who would want me to help buy stuff for you, I have to kindly decline. It’s my first trip down, so I don’t know how much stuff I would be bringing back. Sorry about that.  ^^;

And as the famous quote goes

“One small step for Man, One giant leap for mankind!”
(“One small step for Windbell, One giant change in the future!”)

(P.S Will add those who have requested exchange of links soon. Been packing for this trip.)

(P.S.S Solved the bug for the sidebar polls. Seems like the sidebar polls was interfering with the one in the “Nozomi V2’s” post. Split the post with the more tag and it’s alright now. Have to search the author’s site for an update.)

(P.S.S.S Been sneezing a lot lately. Hopes no one has been talking about me behind my back. Or could it be a cute/hot ‘tsundere’ girl actually? :p)
