  • Japan | Sushi and Returning Home

    The day began at 7ish with a call from my mom asking if I was awake. Clearly I woke up after this phone call. I got ready and finished packing the few things I had out (cables, electronics, toiletries). I also lost my lock for my luggage for a couple minutes (it fell inside of […]

  • Japan | Last Minute Roaming

    At 9am I was ripped away from my sleep when “Shy Guys” by Seaway rang from my phone nearly giving me a heart attack. I got ready, preparing for my final day in the country of the rising sun. I am actually pretty excited to go home, because I realised that I do not like […]

  • Japan | Ghibli Museum and Harajuku

    My day began at around 8:30ish. I slept about 6 hours and it was beyond magical! Especially after the crazy night I had last night! Anyways, for breakfast I had a croissant and juice from 7/11 and then Michelle and I headed off to Mitaka to visit the Ghibli Museum! I’ve had the ticket reserved […]

  • Japan | Back to Tokyo

    My day began at 4:30…and I went to sleep at 2:30ish. So I slept for two hours give or take? In the morning I finished putting away the final things in my luggage and aided Pamela in cleaning her room. As a form of thank you she made me breakfast that consisted of toast, salmon […]

  • Japan | Last Day in Kyoto

    On my last official day in Kyoto I woke up around 6:30 and followed my usual morning routine. Being the last day I was already an emotionally compromised in the morning. I got to Ritsumeikan around 8:40ish, and it felt aweful knowing that next Monday I will be waking up in a hostel with 3 […]

  • Japan | Skits and Cooking

    My second to last day in Kyoto began at 6am. My morning went on like usual, and even went to school early. Ritsumeikan is really relaxing in the morning when there are hardly any students. We actually had lessons even though we already took our final…(I didn’t even bring my textbook…). For the third hour […]

  • Japan | Final Exam and Strolling

    My day began at 6am. It was test day and I was super nervous. I studied for a bit before quickly getting ready and getting on a bus to school. I was at Ritsumeikan by 7ish and I studied once again with Elaine (she made me a quick study guide, because she is an angel […]

  • Japan | Studying and Sushi

    My day began at 6am where I woke up to study and review. I got ready, ate breakfast and headed to Ritsumeikan where I studied some more before lessons began for the day. Nothing exciting happened to me today, nor in the class. Class came and went. We “reviewed”, it was more like “Know everything […]

  • Japan | Honorary Singaporean

    Today my day began at 6am. Why did I wake up so early you ask? I asked myself the same thing when I couldn’t fall back asleep. I got up, and took extra long going through my morning routine. First I wash my teeth, sing the ABC’s in my head to count brushing time (don’t […]

  • Japan | Monkeys and Gion

    My day began around 9. It was so nice to sleep in for so late. First time since I have arrived to Japan! I lazied around for a bit while I got ready to go on an adventure. For breakfast I ate blueberry creme oatmeal (yay not toast). Originally I was suppose to go to […]
