The kitchen

I have been processing for the whole darn night after working. (I could see star by now...) Anyway, I am still aiming for my target to get everything completed before 10th Jan 2010. :"P (and hopefully I will make it). It has been a special day today and got to meet some new friends here and there. First is Agnes, I  got to know about her site when I visited 家梅 site... She is a very talented hand crafted maker so just in case any body is interested with her work you all could visit her at dream land station. (I believe she sell some of her works as well). Another one is A.B.E, he is one of Unagiz friend and he has a band. Do check out the music they come out with at their site. It is pretty cool. (Anyway it is nice to have some new friend specially when a new year is approaching) :)

More photos after the jump... :)

Serving the customer

Anyway, Day 6 has been a shorter day for us. Half of the gang has decided to go to the hot spring while the other half decided not to go. (I am on the side that is not going...:"P) too bad ya, I bet it will be an awesome experience... but, I still could not face the reality that I will need to be nak3d in front of Alex and Hoong before I go into the hot spring.

It is drizzling outside

The thing is that, there will be after effect in my brain. I am fine to go to the hot spring with some fellow that I don't know. Alex... (is still ok, cause I seldom see him much since he is working in MS now). But Hoong? is still kinda weird I will need to see him in the office everyday and it makes me wonder how could I face him where everytime when I see him and the 1st things that pops up in my mind is that he is not wearing anything sitting beside me in the hot spring... ~:| (Darn, enough of the imagination) That's why few of us decided not to go and having some small meal just outside the hot spring hotel. :"D Yeah, it is a small restaurant... kinda shady but still there are lot of people going there for their lunch. The food there is not that bad though. I love the dumpling a lot! :"D~~ (Yummy)

This is one of the national treasure - it is a door.


After our meal, we went to the Nishi Honganji with the help of Clifton (He is a Singaporean who is doing his Buddhism study a Japan now). :)It is another hugh temple. (Seriously, most of the temple in Japan have been there for a while and have been sustain for thousand of years). We have visited a few national treasures in the Nishi Honganji as well.

A closer look


the view in the temple is very special. All the light has been lighted up. So again, my portraiture buggy started to bite and I decided to get everyone some shoot here again. :"D (Although I didn't brought most of the tools, but the flash should do the work right here).
