Whew. It’s a relief to finally be out of the shadow of the Great Firewall. Now, instead of blaming my lack of write…y…ness on the “living in China” condition, I can put it squarely on my laziness.
So yeah, that’s all for now.
(This was Day 5 of our trip – we flew back to Tokyo the next morning for the last leg of our trip)
So, I won’t waste words. It was… a place of flowers, so to at least keep some dignity, I can’t say anything.
(This was Day 4 of my Japan trip)
A jidaimura is basically a ‘cultural village’ (not lit.) – ie. a recreation of the good ol’ days centuries – or possibly millenia – ago. Anyways, picture spam:
So… it’s my third day in Hokkaido. Crazy tired, too, and my parents are getting room service massages at ¥5000 per hour. Damn them. Anyways…
I know that the previous entry said I wouldn’t be writing now… but I am. I just realized that it’s 4:49 in the afternoon, and we won’t be going out until at least 6 or 7. With the computer all to myself (my dad’s asleep – heheh) it’s too good a chance to waste.
I never did get a chance to tell everyone how much I dislike Malaysia as a country. It’s not about the people – they’re as good, or bad, as you find in most East Asian countries. It’s not the place – dangerous as it is, it’s no worse than, well, other East Asian countries. It’s the culture that I really don’t like. I can’t explain it well in a paragprah (or even 4) but I’ll get around to it eventually.
