I LOVE JAPAN - Hakone to get pregnant + Sio's birthday!

Hello!!! I am blogging this from Korea! Today is Day 4 after my surgery and i am feeling energetic mostly already! Like.. I'd say 70 - 80% of my energy level is back haha! Though i still look like a kong ba bao walking around. I wanna wait til the staplet comes off from my hair line then i go and shampoo leh! Which will be day 7 after surgery.

Actually i was told by REGEN (Email infoglobal@regengroup.co.kr) that i can already shampoo backwards, i guess that means someone (preferably in the salon) shampoo for me. But i damn kiasi one so i think.. I can handle being a bit dirty hahaha. And just shampoo in 3 more days.

I mean really.. No big deal O.O Hahah.

Staying at Big John's Place guesthouse and i must thank Jayne for helping me find this awesome place. The house owners have the biggest hearts and they keep the place so tidy and comfy.

More on my trip and surgery experience soon! JAPAN NOWWWWW!!!

So after Gotemba Premium Outlet store, we continue the road trip to Hakone!!! There's actually a lot you can do in Hakone but i just really wanna go touch the tree that can give ladies pregger luck O.O

Hahaha. Cheesie touched it and got pregnant. Cheesie's friend who don't wanna get pregnant, touch it and also got pregnant. Lolol. So i hope it's my turn soon! =DDD

Imma spoil my daughter soooooo bad. If it's a son i guess at least he still has a father.

LOLOL. Kidding~

Me and Josh washing our hands with the water pool. I guess it's to like.. Be respectful cox don't touch anything that is sacred with our commoners hand hahah. We keep giggling cox the water is major cold and our photographer Sam, don't know can trust or not one. So have to take multiple shots. LOL.
Wash until hand turn numb lolol.
Samantha standing outside the place where we draw our luck!!! =DDD She and i both get AUSPICIOUS! I think there is also a SUPER AUSPICIOUS. Bitch Nose (aka Sam) a bit not appreciative cox she say "Huh, 吉而已啊 他们有大吉的嘞" Ah, Sam why don't you dig into the box and open every single charm and help yourself. Lolol. I think i damn lucky loh!! With each lot there is a little charm!!! A lot of them shown on the paper is like quite ugly.. =X I wanted only the Zhao Cai Mao and I GOT IT!!! =DDD
Hi, i don't dare to pose in front of sacred attractions one. Lol. I think it's very disrespectful.
This other fountain is for people who wanna touch the tree, to wash hand again. Bitchnose don't wanna get pregnant nor does she wanna touch the tree so i don't know why she keep washing hand machiam it's free hand sanitizer? Lolol.
Well hello 不好意思 but 我 think 我怀孕了 =))))) Hahahaha! WOOHOO I TOUCHED IT!!!! After i self-proclaim pregnant. And when climbing down the hills i walk damn slow and ask everyone to wait up for the pregnant lady can't go too fast =))) Hahahah. They ask me to go and die.
Jokes aside. I am very very happy i finally touched the tree!!! =DDD I think it will work as a booster for my pregnancy luck! Hahaha.
Erm.. We don't know if the male have to touch it but just in case.. O.O
I never pass up on making wishes =DDD
Omg my hair damn nice, done by Sio before the trip! Hahaha. Call 6338 5250 to book appointment!
Hang it up highest!!! =DDD That's what i'd always do!!! HIGHEST!!!!
Hakone is really just very peaceful and serene.. I guess if you wanna take long slow strolls, this would be a perfect place. But when we were there it was sooooo freezing cold!!!
So we only took a few pictures.. Me and Samantha Jiejie haha.
The boys..
Before we can even appreciate the scenery and view a bit more, you see Bitchnose running for her life hahahaha. It was too cold for her. So she ownself run until the stairs then act yi ge courteous to wait for us there. Lolol.
Head back to Tokyo Shibuya and went to get a birthday cake for Sio!!! =DDD This is from the Kiki Lala cafe in Shibuya! You can google it. The cake is massive chio yes?! Taste alright. Light sponge cake with light cream.. Nothing woah but still, the look of it makes up for everything haha!
OnigiriGirls with Little Twin Stars.
While walking to our dinner venue we got sooooo hungry Sio ask us to try some snacks first. So we got to this fried chicken shop and IT IS THE BEST FRIED CHICKEN CHUNKS I EVER HADDDDDDD!!!!!!! The sauces are a little quirky though! So i only went with original spice!
This is the signboard!!! You can see them having a few branches here and there so please try it if you ever pass by!!! =DDD Super duper crispy outside and sooooo juicy inside! Careful with the seasoning though! Bitchnose added a lot of the seasoning and everyone burnt their tongue cox too salty lolol.
MINE ^.^
Dinner time!!! They brought us to a very luxurious sashimi shop. 80% of the dishes are sashimi style lol good for Josh and Sam cox they love sashimi! Then i jiak simi..?
Freshness Burger Spam and Egg. Haha. BEST MEAL EVER~? Hahaha. Cox it's to celebrate Sio's birthday, his old colleagues and friends came to join =DDD
Otaku in action. They were just totaly in their own world looking at videos and whatnots. I am guessing it's pokemon. Lolol.
Food galore time~~~~~ Some liver paste that Samantha love O.o I am thinking she can survive very well on a deserted island. Cox she eats so much raw food. I will need a lot more to eat a meal. Maybe some sesame oil, some soya sauce. At least a simple fried rice you know. Lol.
THERE. MY ONE AND ONLY FAVOURITE DRINK IN JAPAN FROM NOW ONNNN!!! Cassis!!! It's actually cassis fruit + orange juice with a tiny bit of alcohol but it's soooo good!
One of the many raw fish on the table that night haha. This was a whole fish.
Deep fried a part of the fish i don't know which, steamed vegetables and raw octopus salad? =O
And more fishes for the cavemen.
A huge plate of shell types. Raw too. Lolol. Tamago which is the thing i should love but turned out tasteless =OOO Vegetable tempura that i didn't eat cox i was already full with three cups of Cassis and my freshness burger hahaha.
After they finish up the meat of the whole fish sashimi earlier.. They ask for the bone to be deep fried till SUPER CRISPYYYYY!!!! IT IS SOOOOO GOOD OMG. Like freaking keropok!!! =DDD
I was astonished by why Yoshi san de handphone got antenna one lolol. He say how come we don't have, it's for watching TV on the go.. O.O
Found an old picture of Sio from Watanebe!!! HAHAHA.
果然每个人都有过去. 许冠英也不例外. LOLOLOL. I type in Chinese, he will never find out.
Group picture with birthday boy =DDD BEST HAIRSTYLIST IN THE WORLD TO ME!!!
Not sure if 拜拜 or making a birthday wish. Haha.
He was totally butchering the pretty cake!!!! So one person cut cake, one person hold, one person give advice hahahah.
Light strawberry cream on the inside ^.^ It taste more like ice cream i think but really it's cream.
Mine ^.^
This is the restaurant name if any of you are keen! Haha. The fishbone is a MUST-TRY!!! Of course everyone loved the sashimi cox it's fresh and sweet and whatnot.. But i can't speak for that!
Went to combini and bought this ice cream!!!!!!!!! BEST EVERRRRRR! It's the ice cream version of a candy. There's a candy version. the candy also damn nice one, like chewy one. SURPRISINGLY, THE ICE CREAM ALSO CHEWY ONE!!!!!! =OOOO I LOVE IT!!!!

You can find the list of brands HERE. It's crazyyyyyy!!! It's like a whole town FILLED with big brands and small brands!!! From Japanese labels to international labels.. Everything at a discount!!!

Beside our hotel.. The first sakura tree i saw in my whole life =))))) It's just a standalone one.
Picked up one from the flower.. It's still perfect =)) There's some kind of.. Serenity in a small alley like this.. Where you can pick up a perfect flower that just fall from the tree.
I love Japan, i love Japan everywhere.
Taking the subway to go meet Watanabe!!! He is Sio's bestfriend and he is an angel!!! He took us around in the car for two whole days!!! That means he took 2 days off work for us!!! Super thankful!
After we grab a quick one from combini for the road trip!
Introducing Watanabe!!! Hahah! ROADTRIP STARTS!!!!!!
Josh moved to the back cox i kept moving around and hit my head on the bar.. Like many times lol. So we switch seats. Cox i bo xi diam.. He xi diam. Lolol.
This time we are still Samantha and Qiu.
After this we are forever #onigirigirls ^.^V Hahaha! I even made a song for our debut album!!! "Onigirigirls~~ Tamago~ Mentaiko~ Oni onigirigirls~ Oh yeah yi yeah yi yeah~" O.O
Happy~~~ I love road trips loh. Cox it's just one person drive..... Lolol.
While the rest pig out O.O Hahah! My breakfast!!!!! I LOVE THE SEASONAL FRUIT JUICE PACKS!!!! I make sure i try every different flavour when i'm there if i can!!!

If you ever see this....... YOU HAVE TO BUY ITTT!!!!!!! It's crab flesh + wasabi cheese!!!!!!! AND IT IS SO GOOD!!!!!! Omg not sure if i tio gong tao or everything just really taste so good in Japan!
Stop over for toilet break at a pit stop station and saw this cute Anpanman beverage machine!
The toilet is beyond first class omg. Got like a vanity room and table with powerpoint! Can do your full makeup and hair there lol. And there's a board to tell you which cubicle is occupied / free. And it's sooooo clean and dry!!! It makes you appreciate Japan standard for everything even more!!!
With roadside flower =_= Roadside flowers also so chio. Watanabe prolly laughing at the back going "Heh. Tourist" Lolol.
Siew mai using pork from black pigs. Lol. Samantha maybe find the styrofoam more appetizing?
MY MUST-HAVE!!!!! Baby Cheese and grapes!!!! Freaking gourmet dessert time on the car!
 And we arrived at Gotemba Premium Outlets!!!

I was in particularly going for Lowrys Farm, Snidel, Ciao Panic and Samantha was going for Prada and likes. Lolol. But in the end we bought shopped quite a lot more than items from those shops!

The guys also did some shopping for their girlfriend / wife! Haha.

I ALMOST bought a solid perfume necklace from Chloe!!! Lucky i control never buy cox i know i wanna buy simply cox it's chio and smell quite pleasant lah but i'd never wear it i'd just keep it in my drawer and admire it.

Just like the Jill Stuart blusher i bought for $50 on my previous Japan trip =XXX I until now haven't open it =XXX  But it's okay, maybe next time i can pass to my daughter and tell her it's 传家之宝 lol.

My face + a Samantha doing a "我飞的最高最远~ 我的梦无际无边~" Lolololol.
Poor trio. Me and Samantha shop around so much that the three of them just give up hahaha. Luckily there are plenty of seats outside all the shops!!! So the three of them can sit around like they are at 养老院 (old folks home lol). someone bring them the chessboard.


Lotsa people bring their doggies there!!!!

Don't worry the Japanese are very very civil about dog-bringing lol. So totally no doggy smell and the place is very open-space. Doggies are not allowed inside the shops and are always on leash. But you can see them and their owners walking together everywhere outside the shops!!!!!

A bit hard to pull the level for this picture.. Cox if i want the white retriever to look just nice, the black poodles will be too dark. But if i wanna make the poodle details show, the retriever becomes over-exposed. Lolol. I don't know how the owner snaps pictures of them together.
Hello cutie!!!
Cute shiba giving me a sleepy look!!! Hahaha!
Went to a sushi shop within the premium outlet!!! MUST try these soup if you are a soup lover! The base is very thick!!! Flavour is super strong and authentic!
Sam, Sio having a stroke again and Watanabe ^.^
Me and my Josh ^.^
We ordered a lotttttt of food!!!!!! Excuse me can you please look at the unagi tempura sushi. LOLOL. It's totally overflowing. And the uni sushi!!! What the heck hahaha.
Group shot of the first batch of food!
Not really. Lolol. I don't take raw food so.. I can has tamago. Lolol.
AND KANIIIII!!!!!!! This one is REAL FREAKING WHOLE CRAB LEG!!! I think it's even more li hai than kani!!! It tastes soooo sweeeet and yumssss!!!
BEST. FREAKING. FISH. I. EVER. HAD. IN. MY. LIFE. FULLSTOP. Lolol. NO JOKE LAH!!! This fish is soooooooo good it just melts in my mouth and it's soooooo fatty!!!! I don't know what it's call but it sounded something like.. Eng gah wah or something. Samantha ordered it!

We ordered so much until we cannot finish right. End up the meal for 5 person cost $150 only.

What the heck.

I am so totally going back to Japan, hopefully soon!!!

That's that for now!!!

I'd say check out the premium outlet if you love to shop!!! You'd definitely be able to find something that's cheaper than what you can find outside!!! And all the big brands from Japan and overseas are there so it can't go wrong!!! But if you're not a shopping person then maybe still go check it out for the sushi hahaha. And the doggies and the beautiful ambiance!!!

Especially let's say you're heading to Hakone, you should definitely drop by Gotemba! Cox it's on the way!!! Okay next post about Japan soon okay!!! ^.^

I gotta go finish up my advertssss dee =( If not Weds i'm flying off for my surgery!!!

Okay bye bye!!! Hope your weekends been good to you ^.^
