PHOTODUMP: Seoul and Tokyo Escapades
Posted by Molybdenum Studios
Yay! I felt so delighted after I was granted a multiple-entry Japanese visa. This is actually, a blessing from God, I guess. Thanks to okaa-chan for this one! See you soon, Kyōto! Also, I could finally visit Tokyo Disneyland and Osaka Universal Studios wearing a kimono! Yee-haw!
NOTE to people who will be visiting South Korea: Sadly, South Korea only provides 110V North American outlets in hotels, but usually, they pre-dominantly use the Type-C/F Schuko plug/outlet. This is the first country so far I’ve visited that uses Europlugs.
Not surprisingly, South Korea has Christianity and Buddhism as their two main religions besides Confucianism. I have to say that Confucianism is more of a religious philosophy, not a religion. However, Confucianism has been embedded in Korean culture, that’s why if you’ll meet a Korean Christian or a Buddhist, they have accepted the fact that Confucianism has been reconciled with other religions. (:
We passed through Dunkin Donuts. Gah, the buzzer wasn’t functioning so the staff there was willing to give us our order. Kamsahamnida, eonni! It was very great to know how you’re willing to do your job well.
It’s a good thing that cosmetics and goods in SoKor are affrodable, though in the Philippines, it’s cheaper. Japan, however, is still gawddang costly, except for goodies.
We felt very spoiled as tourists in our hotel in Japan. Hmmm… maybe Japanese people are more welcome to tourists than TNTs? Well, that should not be a big deal after all, since Filipino tourists are the ones who are the luckiest. Or prolly it’s just me, though. SMH
WARNING: Fangirl Mode.|Well… here it IS! THE Sakai Masato aka the guy who is blessed with good looks and a sun-kissed complexion. I cannot… say anything other than the fact that he’s like a GOD here across Japan. Hahaha! #KomiSays: Does AA Klenk have that way back in the Philippines!? I bet, she’s only on a billboard within the poorest areas not only in PH but also in war-torn areas in ze whole, wide world (ROTFLMFAO!).
So I had this filter for the EF-S 15-85mm lens. Happy kid right here, like a boss! It costs around 5000 JPY, but it’s actually affordable to buy something that is considered as costly in the Philippines–since 1000 PHP is around 23 USD, but the biggest yen banknote is 10000 JPY = 5000 Php, which is big money already.
A night before we go home to Manila, I just had myself GLOW magazine with Kyoka Suzuki (Remember Keiko Schneider in Legal High!?) as the covergirl. Gah, compared to other gravure idols, she’s the most wholesome–up to now.
Hmmm… I guess these are the photos I could post for now. I’m very much excited to make a food review about Japanese KitKats! (:
Korean seaweed tastes nice… and yes, if I were to be asked, Korea and Japan are the best places to go! I think that I feel like at home in Seoul, since parang Pilipino na rin ang mga Koreano. ((: In other words, nasanay na tayo na andiyan sila, therefore, they’re always welcome in the Philippines.
