And tonight, a nation grieves.

The past few days have been emotional for me.

First, on finding out that an earthquake struck Sabah. The very place we were at exactly a week ago. We were thankful and blessed that we were back safe in our lil’ country.  However, at the same time, I felt a certain kind of pain for the people of Sabah, the wonderful and warm Sabahans. I grew fond of that place even though we were there only for a few days. It’s mostly coz of the people. We love them. They are so jolly and smiley all the time.

Sabah – Day 1 Part 1


So for day 1, we woke up at 630am and were out of our supercantik room by 715am (yuppp. on a holiday warghhhh! Day 2 was worse!wait for that!) so that we can go down for breakfast before meeting our guide at 8am and starting the day activities.

The breakfast buffet was cray-cray seriously! Fauzie stuffed himself on the first day and not surprisingly, his portion lessen subsequently over the days. HAHAAA!


Here’s us looking all full at breakfast.

Anyway, first stop was to Kinabalu National Park…

So Sabah was an impromptu trip. It was decided and confirmed within a week. We didn’t have time to research the itinenary but we were  sooo very lucky to have Sabah Tourism board to help us out with that.

Right, so last Friday, we went lor. And actually am still here. it’s our last night booohooo! And ohh, by the way, all the guesses on my instagram post were so cute! I asked people to guess which country am I going to and my clue was that it will take about 2 and half hours to reach my destination by plane. And my fav answer was Cameron Highlands! SO CUTE RIGHT. hahhaah. Thanks for layan-ing me! xx

Japan – Getting there

Yessss, finally…………… THE TIME HAS COME for the long awaited Japan trip. (BKK totally wiped out our, erm Fauzie’s pocket, but that’s for another post. HAHHH!) We didn’t want to compromise on comfort coz’ of Fauzie’s back and it was a 6 hours flight, so #SQ was the only way to go. And conveniently it was the cheapest full-serviced flight available on Cheaptickets.. so lucky us. 😛

We decided that in Japan, we didn’t want to take any cabs because it can be quite costly so we had to figure out the way from Narita International Airport to our apartment in Sangenjaya. Our host has provided us very precise instructions on how to get to her apartment so that made things pretty easy for us. Or so we thought.

Japan – Preparing the intinenary

 So we booked 6 nights 7 days trip to Japan without knowing whether it was enough or not. We just jumped into it, like oklah, let’s book 7 days coz’ next day I need to work. LOL.

 So we try to make do with our 7 days. We.. or rather Fauzie researched like crazy. HEH.

We looked up websites, Traveladvisor, asked our friends who have been there – namely Azzah and Kak Sharon and some of Fauzie’s friend.  (they gave wonderful suggestions!)

I also asked via my Instagram and these are the answers we got (thanks ladies! so much love..! :))

@Lumpetylump – Tokyo Disneyland/Disneysea

@Iamwendy aka Mrs Frazak – Shopping at Harajuku/Hakone for the Onsen Hotel/Fuji-Kyu at Mt Fuji Area

@Marrmarinah – Kyoto for the Arashiyama, shrines and bamboo grove walk/Hakone for Lake Ashi

@bling2yan Disneyland/Thunder Dolphin Rollercoaster at Tokyo Dome/Hakone for the hotspring/Yokohama

And for every place we shortlisted, we did some more research on them to see if it’s worth going.It can get very tiring and repetitive at times but I dunnolah, I somehow feel like that’s the best part of planning the whole trip, no? 🙂

My husband has his own research and he added it in together with other suggestions.

3.// Preparing the intinenary

(My husband don’t really believe in writing, his handphone is his everything. And he doesn’t even back it up. Sigh.)

Kak Sharon (ermm as in DSP Soh in COL. heeee) recommended going to Yokohama coz’ we can make our own instant noodles there! I was sooo excited but Boss say cannot because no time and too far. Haiyaaaa bossss ar.

In the end, we came to a conclusion.. 7 days was not enough to do everything. Like real only, confident only we thought 7 days can cover alot of things. Sobs.

So we came to a conclusion and locked down a few confirmed places to go.

1) Shibuya

2) Mt Fuji

3) Tokyo Disneysea or Disneyland

4) Tsukiji market


Ok now, come read my next post to see if we managed to achieve all that hor ok?

Japan – Before the trip

So I’ve had a few emails asking me for my itinerary for Japan. Soooo, thus this post. First. Coz’ Mr.F won’t remember and he won’t want to write. I’m very sure of it. -_-

So let’s see.. where do I start?

Flights, right.
Actually we didn’t really plan to go Japan. He wanted to go to Maldives but apparently February in Maldives is super peak period, period and it will cost about 7k for 4 days 3 nights. Wahlao.. no way was I going to let him spend him money like that. He was really persistent you know, his justification was that, he wanted to visit the island before it sinks. Hokaaay hubs.

Anyway, we already planned for BKK (who else pronounced this as Bangkok-kok when they see this abbrev? No? I’m the weird one then..)  for the week before so I randomly suggested Japan and the man agreed lah!
On the spot, before he can change his mind.. I went to Cheaptickets and booked it! Weeeeheee.
Now, some of you may have different sites that you used to compare flight tickets. But for me, Cheaptickets was good for me so whatever works for you guys lah ok.

I was so excited when I checked the temperature forecast for week that we are going..
Can drop to freaking 2DegCel. I was jumping up and down with joy (jakun mah, never go cold country before..) until I realised that we have no winter clothes. Then hubs reminded me that we are going to BKK and we can buy some there. Set!
