A Trip to Nikko~

At 20th September, I had a trip of 2 days and 1 night to Nikko sponsored by JTB. As you all already aware of the earthquake happened at Japan this March, many foreigner are afraid of the radioactive and is not visiting Japan as much as before.

Ops, you can see my name!! haha. As if I scared huh? ^^

Behind the name plate~

But from my point of view, Japan is really safe for now for traveling. And it’s a shame if you didn’t visit Japan since it’s be most advanced and most clean country in the world, not to mention the safety here too.

well then~ back to the trip~ Start from riding the bus~ we gathered at Tokyo Station that day. Then we board the bus and they start giving out flyers and badges~

Kinda nice badge~

The first stop is to Tobu World Square~

Japan Earthquake 3/11 “Japan is DONE FOR! Run EVERYONE”

“Japan is DONE FOR! Run EVERYONE!”

Good day to everyone who is reading this post now. I’m a foreign student from Malaysia who is currently study abroad at Kanagawa, Japan. I’ll be entering my 2nd year in my University this coming april. But, at 11th March, A strong quake struke Japan.

Song recommended when reading this post. “Ark” by Sound Horizon

It was confirmed to be a magnitude 9.0 quake in Iwate(岩手) there. It caused BIG Tsunami and it swayed many people’s house, cars, and even ships! Until today, more than 6,500 people had found death at Tohoku Chihou(東北地方). And now people still evacuating and need our helps now.

Peoples in Akihabara right after the strong quake at 11th March.

But then, what about people in Tokyo? What about the people at Kansai(west side of Japan)? There is totally no damage to the Kansai Area. And not much to Tokyo too. I dare to say this because I had been watching NHK news since 11th of March. I keep on updating myself with news and tweets and media blogs. Tokyo is now functioning well and things we need to worry for now is food shortage(due to people buying too much to store), and electric shortage( which caused train moving less than normal).

Everyong is standing in the middle of the road to avoid things fall down from building. Yeah, They didn’ t run in chaos as you see in some Dissaster movies.

“But they said the Nuclear Reactor is blowing up!!! ”

Kinect + Wii Remote Controller + VR + MMD + FPS

Stumbled upon this Youtube video today and wow. I can see the future of first person shooting games. ^^

Appearantly someone had created a Virtual Reality games with Kinect, Wii’s Remote Controller and MMD 3D models. The quality is still kinda shitty but I believe if some corporation wished to put in modals into it, it will surely become something BIG!! Not much to say, Watch the Video!!!

(the BGM is good too. All are from Vocaloid’s songs)

Hakone Trip 2010

Last Thursday, I had been to a one day trip to Hakone organized by my scholarship sponsor, Mabuchi Motor Corporation. At their official letter it wrote “奨学生の集会” and I was expecting we are gonna meet up inside some building and talking to each other about our life. But I was really wrong about it. It turned out to be a really fun trip to me.^^

Inside the bus. As you can see it’s raining out there~

I meet up with my friends from my previous Japanese language school, ABK at Tokyo station at about 7:45 a.m and then walked to the destination bus station nearby. It kinda suck to he walking in the pouring rain. Even inside of my shoes had filled with water…

And then it’s time to ride the bus. The girl sat beside me is a Mongolia who study her 2nd year in University. We talked a while and the bus departed.

We had been given these snacks to eat along the journey.

Inside the bus, the leader of the scholarship student had prepared some ice breaking games for us to play. Even though I don’t think it is necessary for me, I had fun played along.

Our first destination is Owakudani that we can take great photos of the smoke released and buy the famous “Black Eggs”. They said that you can live 7 years longer with every Black Eggs you consumed due to it’s nutrients. Bought some to be bring to my home-stay family and some or myself.^^

Tokyo Game Show 2010

I had been to Tokyo Game Show that located at Makuhari Messe at 18th September 2010 with my friend. I bought the ticket at 7-eleven nearby my house for 1000 Yen.

Reached there  at 11.10 am. Got there late because I got the wrong station name.

Weather that day was really nice, and not too hot.

Up till here, I start to wonder… “wow… looked like not really lots of people coming to this TGS 2010”.. But then the nightmare had just begin~

Odawara Castle(小田原城)

Yesterday when I’m going to part-time job interview at Odawara, I had passed through this Castle. Asked the man after my interview and he told me the entrance is free so I decided to take a walk inside it.

Some historical education for the tourist to read. How much can you understand without english explanation? ^^

It’s kinda interesting to see such historical building located just beside of the main road inside a city. ^^

liked the red bridge. A bridge always remind me of the scene from Spirited Away where Chihiro have to cross the bridge without breathing so the spirits or gods there will not notice she is a human.
