The Blue Hole – William Trubridge and the French Spiderman – Alain Robert

Dearie just showed me a video which was just, oh so amazing!

Many would have heard of “The Black Hole” but have you heard of “The Blue Hole“?


The Great Blue Hole, located near Ambergris Caye, Belize

I think all the divers will probably know. =) Of course not me lah, the aquaphobic freak.

A blue hole is a submarine cave (inland) or underwater sinkhole. They are also called vertical caves. There are many different blue holes located around the world, typically in low-lying coastal regions. The best known examples can be found in Belize, the Bahamas, Guam, Australia (in the Great Barrier Reef), and the Red Sea. The deepest blue hole in the world—at 202 metres (663 ft)—is Dean’s Blue Hole, located in a bay west of Clarence Town on Long Island, Bahamas. Other blue holes are about half that depth at around 100–120 metres (330–390 ft). The diameter of the top entrance ranges typically from 25–35 metres (82–115 ft) (Dean’s Blue Hole) to 300 metres (980 ft) (Great Blue Hole in Belize).

Can you imagine? A freaking cave in the freaking ocean! Just the thought of it send fears through me. And it’s not a horizontal cave okie~ It’s a vertical cave! So it gets deeper and deeper….

你怕黑吗?

你怕水吗?

我怕!!!!!!

But this man, or rather, fish…………………………

William Trubridge freedives THE ARCH at Blue Hole, Dahab

No suit, no tank, no fins!! With only the skin on his back and just one breath…….

I’m sure even for no swimming/diving experts like me, you’ll know how amazing that is. He can hold his breath for at least 2.5minutes…and I think my max is only 30seconds. =/ What is even more admirable is how well and calm he took the whole dive, it is a pressure as well as mental challenge. Not to mention the courage to dive further and further and the acute, precise estimation of the distance taken. Hell, you still have to dive back to the top! I simply cant imagine if breath was out half-way through….*shivers*

Currently he sets the world’s free-diving record(Constant Weight Apnea Without Fins, CNF) at 100m…..

There are many forms of free-diving, you can read here.

Here’s another breath-stopping video. It shows a much clearer view of “The Blue Hole”.


Guillaume Nery base jumping at Dean’s Blue Hole, filmed on breath hold by Julie Gautier

It’s a fiction video…hmm…nevertheless, still a tranquil and heart throbbing one.

Along the youtube page of his videos…you’ll see other videos like….”Last dive of so-and-so”….”38metre dive goes wrong”…..”The death of…”…..and it really deeply saddens me. And I have no courage to watch them….

Another legendary figure would be Alain Robert, known as “the French Spider-Man”. He’s famous for scaling skyscrapers with nothing except his bare hands, climbing shoes, and occasionally, a bag of chalk powder. His current most prestigious record is Taipei 101 building at 508 metres in Taiwan. Here’s one video of him scaling an 150 meter building in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates. It’s probably peanuts to him. =P

I had the privilege of hearing him speak at one MDRT experience(been to many, dont remember which one) and I vaguely remembered the words he said ever so offhandedly, “I wont allow myself to fall…because I know I cant afford to fall!”. It was indeed such drive and determination that propelled him to scale greater heights even after massive operations. And did I even mentioned he has Vertigo?

What can I say? These people risk their lives just to fulfill their dreams! Mountain climbing? You can still stop when you choose to do so, you can choose to quit, you can save yourselves.

People like Alaine Robert….they dont allow themselves to fail because they know they cant fail! They know they must succeed or else death will be the outcome.

Dont give yourself another easy way out or you’ll tend to take it unknowingly.

Give yourself NO WAY OUT.

Remember “I MUST”, “I WILL” and dump words like “Probably”, “Maybe”, “Perhaps”.

And WE will succeed!! YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!

Summary~

Aiyooooo~~ My poor back! =(  Just back not long from Peg’s house, MJ together with Kt and Suan. And the chairs have no backsssss. I’m really lousy. Peg is like 8months preggie and was totally fine without the back support. I’m so impressed. Thank god, for the first 2 rounds out of 3, I actually had the privillege of leaning against the shoe cabinet. The last round simply wore me off. Lucky win of $180. Pleaseeeee dont always think I win la. This certainly doesnt happen often okieeee~ Treated the girls Mac as an littleeee appreciation, because Suan always refused to accept my money when she tabao food to my house and Kt always fetch/send me home. =) Oh, today dearie came to fetch me instead and I accompanied him to eat Roti prata nearby. =)

Had been super busy lately. I kinda got sick too but had recovered. Hmm…some summarized updates will be the joyous outings with dearies, movie reviews(the post below), mum admitted to Tan Tock Seng Hospital and the pub gathering with Iv and gang.

For those who are concerned, thank you very much, my mum is much better already. Guessed she overworked and therefore fainted in the office. Ambulance was called. Am very glad that she finally took MC and took some rest. Am sorry that I missed Yu and Cyn’s baby shower. Simply too exhausted to be running to and fro taking care of her. =( Sometimes…I can get so frustrated…she simply refused to listen. I hope she understands that she needs to rest when she’s sick and not insisted on going to work. Sometimes even though she is okay to work, sleep and rest is needed to recuperate fully. That is probably the problem which most workaholics and old folks dont understand. 休息是为了走更长远的路. It’s no use that you dragged yourself to work but you’ll never recover for one whole week or more! Isnt MC 1 day and thereafter fully recover to resume working a much better and comfortable choice?

Finallyyyy, dearie took time to accompany me shopping! Felt as if I’ve never shop(other than online, Hahahaha!) for so long!  I finally visited dear Ser’s pretty little shop at Fareast Plaza!

Pou Pée

Fareast Plaza at #03-42, Shop 19!

Do add their facebook for exclusive promos!! Online shopping at their facebook is available too if you’re lazy to step out from your house! Currently there’s an exclusive online promo with everything going at $20 only! But do act fast because their stocks finished realllll fast!  I so loved the light pink lacey top and pearly cardigan I bought there! I wished I’ve taken pic of them. They are really sweet and gorgeous. Very very good quality too and I dont see other blogshops selling them. =) Oh, their shop is on the 3rd level. From the escalator, simply head towards your 1pm direction into the very corner. They’re around there. =)

Sweet dearie also accompanied me shopping at Haji Lane. =D Heard from Cori during our mj game that it was pretty fun to shop there. Certainly, I saw a few really exclusive and vintage items. Not alot though. Most are still blogshop items. Hmm their items priced from low to high. As low as $10(blogshop racks) and as high as $100 a top at boutiques. And actually there werent many shops…perhaps because not all were rented out bah. Was kinda disappointed when the shopping lane came to an end. I didnt buy anything at all! =(

Just bought vouchers at bigdeal.com for dearie and friends. We’re going Settlers’ Cafe soon!! $11 nett for 4 course dinner and 3 hours gaming. Woo!! Looking forward! I hope there’s enough games for our big group of 8!

Tomorrow, or rather later, is Rem and Eil’s baby girlie’s shower. Looking forward to baby vivi’s shower too, which is soon! Baby girls have been sprouting like crazy around me this year, that it’s almost scary. Hahaha.

Busy busy busyyyy~ But I’m loving it. =)

Moviessss

Hopefully these reviews arent too late for you. =)

Comments: Sorry, totally cant accept the plot. Main female lead cant act. Emma Stone would have been a great choice. What a waste. Wonderful animation, excellent visual effects and actions…just the most riduculous plot. I simply dont like plots concerned with siao char bor.

Comments: This is my first time watching a movie by Won Bin. Prior to that, I dont even know who is he. He’s super coolz and charismatic in this role though action moves can be choreographed better. And oh man, beneath those sensual lips and engimatic eyes, he sure can act! Definitely worthy of the many “best actor” awards which he won. However, the show has a lousy ending.

Comments: The visual effects is kinda disappointing. Expect nothing like “Aliens” or “Star Wars”. Common plot…and well…simply nothing exciting lah. The most sickening thing was that it was filmed in a way that it was superrrrr shaky. I understand that some scenes were delibrately filmed like that, but definitely not too many scenes! It was so bad that it made us both pretty giddy for the first hour.

iphone cover frenzy

I missed this spree. =(


.
.
Awwwww……………feel like buying all of them!

I’ll wait for the next spree. =D Finally I can get fancy iphone 3G covers with flap!

********************************************************************

Praying for Japan. Hope everyone is well, especially L and her hubby. Heard it’s still pretty safe in Tokyo and surprisingly, the country is in no frenzy. Sad thing is, we cant visit them just yet because our April Japan trip is cancelled…as it’s totally not safe to travel. Might consider to either postpone it…..OR change destination to Melbourne, Perth or Sydney…..OR anywhere where else equivalent in value.

I’m considering to postpone the trip the August during my birthday. Since I will have holiday mood then, might as well spend a holiday. Dearie’s birthday is too far away, in dec, the absolute peak period so that’s out.

Haiz..kinda pek chey now because I cant find my FchFP cert. I need it to attend a course about investment funds because I dont have M8 cert. Dearie found his. Argghhhh! Where can mine be??? =( Thankfully though, I found my AFP cert and that should be able to suffice. And ironically, dearie cant find his AFP cert. ZzZz.

So we both lost 1 cert each. *pengz* It’s weird. We both thought we had already submitted to the company to update but stranglyyyyy….as usual….somehowwww…..it’s not updated lor. Kinda worried I might have thrown it away while shifting house. (=.=)””’ Please noooooooo~~

Jess & James Solemnization/Wedding Lunch @ Raffles Town Club

It was Jess & James Big day!!! Attended the event with joy as well as apprehension, because you know why? While I was very very happy for the lovely couple, I was also appointed the emcee with 24hours notice because Jess’s friend put her aeroplane at the last minute. I really dontttttt understand why people can be like that. (=.=)”””’

“Dont you have a better choice???” I asked Jess in exasperation after her SMS. Because while I’m very willing to help her the most I can, I really cant do a perfect job because I’ve never been an emcee before and I’m soOooO terrified that I’ll jeopardize their BIG DAY! I guess it’s difficult to get help at such notice… =(  So yeah, I was the emcee. =/

Immediately after the notice, I dug my lappy for the old emcee script for my own wedding(dinner). But hor, da match leh. Because it’s just very different! And I havent the foggiest idea what to say. I could only do the least by reaching earlier to discuss with the bride and coordinator, Cindy. Erm, in any case, I’m glad everything went smoothly. =P

It was my first time attending a solemnization/wedding lunch at Raffles Town Club and I was so impressed and awed by the splendor of the decor. Everything, just everything was purrrrfffect!! Really! The venue decor, the food, the service, wedding favors, right down to the feather pens, every little or big thing was simply heart-warming and tastefully arranged. I’ll let the pictures tell the story. Spent quite some time organizing them. =P

.

At reception.

.


The opulent entrance

.

.

.

Absolutely stunning bride! It’s my first time seeing Jess with makeup. Lol.

She has always been a natural beauty and even more so ravishing with her beauty enhanced by make-up. =)

Okie. I know I look fat with my mushroom hair(top and bottom different colours, lol) =P

.

The solemnizer, Mr David Ong did a fantastic job. Should have asked him to double as emcee instead of me la. A dignified-looking man of forties or so, impeccably dressed. I say, he’s a good choice for people who are very concerned with aesthetically pleasing solemnization pictures and well-executed solemnization. =P

When he appeared punctually at the reception, the receptionists asked him whether he’s a friend of Jess or James. One look at him and I concluded he’s the Justice Of Peace. He simply got the “JP look”. Muahahaha. And I said it out loud.

“And I suppose you’re a pop singer?” He asked me back.

I almost fainted at the outrageous assumption. ZzZzz

“No! I’m the last minute appointed emcee. ” I corrected him after recollecting my shock.

“You should join Star Search or something, dont she?” He looked to James for affirmation.

Both of us smiled awkwardly and unnaturally at each other for the ridiculous notion. ZzZzZzZz. That image was so simply so funny, like we’re both forced to smile at something so nonsensical. (=.=)””’

This is pretty bad. So I appeal to old men? Jialat. Hmm….or maybe he should have his glasses checked. Muahahahaha.

.

After the solemnization, we adjourned to The Dining Room for our sumptuous and delicious lunch!

.

Pianist playing in the background….so coolz! =D

.

Now….the food!! It’s my first time having a fine-dining wedding lunch/dinner! Just imagine my delight!

.

Wonderful Wonderful Wonderful!! They simply tasted as divine as they looked!

And this is just the appetizers!! =D

The superb service by RTC staff were commendable too!

.

I chose Lamb for my main instead of Chicken. What can I say? Did you see the perfect pink? =)

.

.

By this time….I was simply so full….that I simply cant stomach all of them…

Not a connoisseur of cheese, the dish was left untouched. Oops!

The ice-cream was wonderful though! It tasted exactly like Rum & Raisin and I’m pretty sure it’s not vanilla! Anyway, it’s okie because Rum & Raisin is my favorite. =D

.

The sorbet was served before the main course.

Cute lollipop given by Jess! It was actually from her “lollipop” bouquet! So cute!

.

Personalized wedding favors!

.

No time to catch picture with the groom, just like all weddings, everyoneeeee were vying to snap pictures with the couple. And I couldnt wait because dearie arrived to pick me. Oh well~

It was a very sweet and heart-warming solemnization and I wish Jess and James an eternal and blissful marriage ever after!! =D




Crack crack

Fantastic mood today! Because Auntie Crimson had left! Muahahaha.

When “she” comes leh, you pray to god she faster leave. Or rather, wishing that she’ll never come back again.

BUT if she dont come leh, you’ll worry if you got p******* or near meno*****(which is a bad thing too if it happens too early)

In the end, you still have to pray to make sure “she” comes. 你说女人是不是犯。。。X。。。啊?

Aiyea, you say, arent we girls contradicting? Sometimes we say yes, but we meant no. Sometimes we say no, but we meant yes. But you cant blame us! We’re just made like that! =P

Had a super duper tiring day but it was pretty well spent. Finally ran some errands which were due for the longest time. I still have a pretty long list of to-do though. Got to bathe Vic tmr too.

I’m like yawning now in every 10 seconds and making the jaw-break-crack sound whenever I opened the biggest-mouth-in-the-world in order to yawn properly. ZzZzZzZz. Maybe I should continue Jess’s ROM entry tomorrow. Just in case my jaw suddenly dislocate or something.

Good…..*Crack*…..Night!

Reminiscence of dearie’s proposal & our 1st Tokyo trip!

Currently watching 鱼跃在花见 on Funshion. Aiyo, I almost cough blood. Myolie is really irritating in the show, as in, her role. I definitely dont mean she’s irritating on a personal level. She always struck me as a very smart and humble lady. =)

The show is really a gastronomic adventure for Japanese cuisine lovers like me. Especially sashimi…..slurps! A gentle warning though, dont watch it with an empty stomach. It’s funny actually. Our Japan trip is finally confirmed on 7th-11th April and this show serves as a wonderful “appetizer”. I’m so looking forward to the trip. Will probably meet up with L in Tokyo if nothing goes wrong and I’m excited about her showing me all the shopping paradise and splendid Japanese sashimi!

To reminisce our previous Japan trip(half work/play, MDRT experience), below is an entry(not in full) copied from my previous blog. It served as a very sweet memory because dearie proposed during our 1st Japan trip. =)  Thus making this 2nd trip all the more meaningful now that we’re back re-visiting after 2 years of marriage. =) Oh it’s even the same season too, around APRIL with the sakura blossoms. Hope we can catch them though. Notice any difference in us? Definitely a difference in dearie. He gained more weight and looked more handsomeeeeee now huh. Haha. I definitely aged. =(  However, the pictures simply stirred my heart warmly. =D

Konichiwa Japan

Hi Guys Im back!

I had mixed feelings yesterday when I reached Narita Airport for departure back home. I mean, it feels good to be back home where I can UNDERSTAND what people are talking and not looking like an idiot when 1 Jap after another mumbled a long string of Japanese to me without me understanding a single syllabus. On the other hand, it means the end of my holiday, unable to shop anymore, and back to the hard, cruel, realistic Singapore, where the lousiest customer service exists.

We flew by Northwest Airlines, flight at 6am on 10th April. Few hours before we left home, we were still packing our suitcases. Haha. Reached Changi Airport at 3.20am(as usual, dearie is very prudent) where we had..supper? Then we proceeded to check in at 4am. Northwest serves nice cabin meals, if you want to know, service pretty good also. Online booking flights within 24hrs can be done but make sure name is keyed correctly. They charged a US$10 for edit of wrong name on e-tickets.

Snoozed in the plane of course. When I woke up, dearie was nowhere to be seen. Before I even have the foggiest idea on what was happening, the crew announced, “Here is a special message dedicated to Fion….”

(-_-)”’

There came dearie’s singing…

明天我要嫁给你了
明天我要嫁给你了
要不是每天的交通都
烦扰着我所有的梦
明天我要嫁给你了
明天我要嫁给你了
要不是你问我
要不是你劝我
要不是适当的时候
你让我心动

“Dear ah! 我愿意用我的一生去爱你,去保护你,去照顾你,你原意嫁给我吗”

**********Applauses************

*blushed*

Finally he came towards me and grabbed the ring box on my food tray(geez I so disoriented that I didnt even realize it’s there) and proposed again after opening the ring box right there with the whole plane passengers looking on!

:

:

:

What else can I say but yes? Keke *blush blush*

********Applauses again********

Im very very surprised! Even though I expected a proposal coming in Japan but I never expected in this way! Again, he never fail to give me surprises. He reckoned I would never have expected it’s in the plane before we even reach Japan. Many colleagues congratulated me as well as acquaintances from my company taking the same place. So nice of them.

There was this male colleague, who offered a handshake after congratulating me, added, “Congrats! You’re not left on the shelf. Haha”

I couldnt quite get his joke as I feel getting married at age 25 is considered early already. For the past me, I will never get committed at this age. Hello! This is Singapore, not India lo. I must have looked damn perplexed. But I guess it’s considered pretty normal for me bah for mean remarks to come now and then because Im mean to people I dont like now and then too. Lol. Lalala. Who cares, so long so Im happy with the one I love. =)

(P/S Hmm….this goes to prove I’m really one who forgives and forget, because 2 years down the road now in 2011, I really cant recall who is this colleague! Haha. =)

Oh ya. For this trip, I dont know why many of the pictures turned out blurry even though they looked okay in the camera. =( So many cant post up. Anyway, cant post too much otherwise will take very long to load.

:


Reached Narita Airport in Tokyo at around 1+pm, app. 6 hours flight.

Upon reaching, I realised I forgotten to put in my memory card in my camera. How dumb can I get? Must be because I wanna delete off pictures in the card to have more memory and I left it in my laptop by mistake. I was so so sad. I deleted all pictures in my internal memory in order to take more pictures but the max they can store is around 10+. =( Many colleagues offered their SD cards but they’re all not compatible. Damn Sony for being so exclusive. Finally, after searching all his various memory cards, Larry came up with one 1GB SOny Memory stick! I was so grateful that I can kiss him on both cheeks!

:

 


Toyoko-Inn at Chiba. The room is small, but cosy and impossibly clean.

:

 


Quite the smallest toilet I’ve ever seen in hotels, however, still pretty equipped

.

As you would have known, accommodation is super expensive in Japan. Our room costs app. S$177 per day, shared by me and dearie. So for 5 days, its S$885 for both of us. Actually on day 4, we shifted to Toyoko-Inn at Shinjuku, still the same hotel but different branch so it looks totally the same. The only draw back would be the tv channels I reckon. They’re showing the same shows everyday! At least for the 5 days that we are there. Since we dont understand Jap shows, its “Ocean Thirteen” and “No Reservations” everyyyydayyyy. Thank god I like Catherine Zeta-Jones in “No Reservations”.

Day 1
By the time we settled down everything, dinner all that, cum traveling via walk+train, its around 7+pm when we reached Disney Sea. Traveling took alot of time. We didnt take cab because their cab fares have killer rates. Its around few hundred S$ for a journey of around 30minutes.

.

 


So cute. The train to Disney Sea was damm cute with mickey-mouse-shaped handles and windows.

.

 


Dearie and Larry acting cute.

.

Admission ticket costed S$44(3100yen). By the way, S$1=70yen. Good thing was that although the admission ticket was expensive, all the rides inside were free for you to take, so there’s no extra hidden costs.

.

.

 

.

Its Spring carnival and Disney Sea’s 25th Anniversary Eve! And they had celebrations with fireworks.

.

.

.

This view was totally enchanting. It’s as good or else better than what the camera captured.

.

Does this reminds you of Shakespeare’s Merchant In Venice or Midsummer Night’s Dream? It’s so Venetian style and romantic. Dearie and me took the Vienna Gondolas boat ride in the quay. Did I mentioned its raining at that time? Haha

.


Lovely splendor inside the gift shops

.


Their so-called House of Terror.

Dearie and me can never forget this. Eil, WJ and Larry enthusiastically encouraged us to go play it. “Its very very fun!” They echoed together.

We strolled in, to find a Japanese girl giving a story telling session beside a small statue which looked like those native african statues, hinting of mysterious power and magic. As we dont understand Jap, I can only guess the haunted story is about this statue which possessed evil power which subsequently lead to the death of somebody via accident in a elevator, as depicted by the outside of the haunted building.

After that ended, we went through a door where there’s another session of story-telling, which again we dont understand a single word. After which, we were being leaded up a staircase and told to take one of the seats in one which looked like a small theater. I thought its another story telling session again..before uneasiness crept into me when I saw seatbelts attached to the seats.

WHY MUST NEED SEAT BELTS???!!!

I was feeling very very eerie and suspicious already and felt like leaving the mini “theater” no matter how dearie might laugh at me for being such a chicken. But, he said, just wait and see. Okie. After the jap girl mumbled something; “&^$@#$%^&*$%^&, SAYONARA!”, suddenly a door jammed shut, closing the entire “mini theater”!!! Lights went off and it was so dark that I cant even see my fingers!!

Siao liao this time. I thought to myself. Okie nvm…then a small 3D screen appeared infront of us, just like a theater, albeit, the laser images projected were so 3D that they looked so real. Heng ah…so there’s another show being shown right here, just that its secluded and closed up, I thought. It showed a man being somehow cursed by the statue and disappeared. The statue disappeared shortly after too after its spine-chilling laughter.

Suddenly, the whole “mini theater” began to vibrate!! And it began to move violently!! Dearie still trying to console the frantic me, “Dont scared dont scared”. Then it began to descend slowly…before it shot up in lightning speed to the highest level of the building where we can clearly see the skies and outside! It stayed stagnant for 1 second before it plunged without a warning and hanged in mid air. Hovering for that 1 deadly second again, until it finally plunged full force downwards right to the ground!!

I tell you, I think dearie screamed even louder than me. =.=”” Or rather, we both screamed as if there’s no tomorrow. And its very embarrassing. Lol. Finally the door opened…and we staggered out on legs which felt like jelly.

We OLD already!! Cant take this kinda shock one!!

Day 2
We woke up early and departed to Makuhari Messe to register for our MDRT experience convention. Then, we went Meiji Shrine temple. Its very special such that we have to walk a very very very long way inside by foot then we can reach the temple. Its totally unaccessible by cars nor bicycles. I guessed it showed the sincerity. Unlike chinese Buddhist temples, there were no statue inside. Jap gods, I think there’s only some sort of amulet. It was fully blocked out to the common public and we were made to pray in like, 30m away. The whole group of us exited by the wrong exit and made a large detour back. My legs almost broke. We had dinner hurriedly and walked another few miles to shop a while at Harajuku, where burberry shop already closed. So disappointed.

Day 3
Seminar started as early as 9am. Ended around 5pm.

.

.

.

After which, Larry, dearie and me left separately for Ueno Park while the others went shopping at the cheap electronics first before they joined us later. We dont have any electronics to buy so we skipped that. We didnt regret. We have extra 1 and half hours to catch some nice pics at Tokyo Ueno-onshi-koen Park where there were still some full-blown sakura trees! We thought we’re unable to catch it since its already mid april.

.

.

.

.

This is not cherry blossoms(I think), but I love them more! I think they’re prettier. Currently checking on their identity. Looks like peony though.

After the others arrived, we shopped 1 and half hours more at Ueno Hirokoji, where we bought lotsa foodstuff. Most are guys’ stuff actually.

At night, we went and attended the special dinner which company arranged for us. The food was scarce and so-so but got free flow beer and sakae. The crowd went crazy. Stupid david borrowed my camera to take videos.

They kept force Andy and Gerrard to drink until they buay tahan. Lol. We had so much fun.

.


Andy and Gerrard so seh. Lol

Day 4
Seminar again. Then We shifted to Toyoko-Inn at Shinjuku and did shopping there. That’s where I bought our burberry blue labels and some clothes.

.


My Burberry buys

Day 5
Went Asakusa Kannon Temple at Asakusa, Lei Men. And shopped at Nakamise Shopping street where alot of traditional foodstuff were sold. After that, we went Ginza, shibuya, 109 building for more shopping. The shops closed as early at 8pm. What the fish manz.

.

.

Day 6
Around 4 hours to shop only as we’re preparing to depart already. Walked around in Shinjuku, lovely shopping there where I bought my best buys. Some went back to Ginza to buy somemore Burberry’s blue label. Haha.

In Japan, everything is so expensive. Things were at least doubly expensive, or else triple or even 10times more.

Clothings cost approximately around S$70 or more. That’s the normal pricing. For slightly better clothes, they can easily reach 10,000yen or more, meaning $140+. Honeydew costs around S$50 each, and watermelons S$70 each. Crazy! The cheapest meal of udon, via ticketing using vending machines and then redeeming it at the counter, will costs around 400yen which is around S$5.70. For slightly better meals, they will cost around S$14. Presentable foodstuff usually costs 800yen, 1000yen or more, which are more and S$10+. Their transportation single trip train tickets costs around S$4+ per trip on the average. Their Daiso stores sell good quality economic stuff, each costs S$1.50

Okie so what are cheaper there?

1) Burberry blue label
Only exclusive there, and cheaper than normal Burberry label.
2) Fake Eyelashes
3) Diamantes
4) Fancl

THAT’S ALLLLLLLLL!!!!!!

*Skipped pictures of my shopping*

**************************************************************************************

Awwwwww~ Cant wait to relive all of these!! =D
