ok, i must admit, i have more and more work coming in, piling up, crashing on me, so, it’s time to end the Yokohama post series… in a few days’ time, anyway, it has been more than two months ago since the Yokohama trip, if i am still writing about the travelogue by next two weeks, my site would have turn into yokohama-tokyo-tour.com liao.

well, these were the final 1.5 days in Japan, so what did we do?

early in the morning, we went to Yokohama city for a no-direction shopping spree. no direction becos we dint know anything, anywhere to shop, but just walk walk here and there.


this photo taken while we waited for the train, this guy’s boots are nice…

arrived at a huge shopping complex (claimed to be largest Yokohama electrical store), but this statue attracted us more than the gadgets on display.

i coudnt stay there too long, too many laptops, netbooks, mini netbooks, never-seen-before micro-netbook! mp3 players, cameras, but they all have a common name = wallet ripper…


at least i got this shot in the shop… ao zooi leh…


ei? guang liang pin guan also got open shop in Yokohama lol…
actually the meaning is, quality brandless goods, some stuff are quite cheap inside…


cafe Limapuluh, means this shop worth RM50 only or one cup of coffee is RM50


some game machine shop


this is a monsoon drain beside a main road, can you tell me how clean is the water? look at the fish, you can see through the water!!

so, now you ask me got economy rice (keng che pui) in japan?
below is your answer…


omfg, look at the food, the way they are presented, the deco, the colour, the freshness, the…. price


this is the fish de eggs!


this is the eggs become de fish, both eaten by human… 🙁

after walking from here to there, to no where, we bought some local delicacies and a few souvenirs (again!) including two unique recycled G2 type pens.

soon, we became very very very hungry (again!) and since i was roaming with mr ng, i had a free meal wahahahaa… we went to..


piZZa de bUFFET! about RM3o each person, now this is so much more worthwhile than the food served at traditional japanese restaurant, the theory is simple: this one you can eat as much as you want…
inside got about 4 types of pizzas (some even tasted very sweet one), some spaghetti, rice, soup… eat until i really want to ta pao back in malaysia.

after lunch we walked for an hour more and about 3pm we gathered at the subway station to head back to “she was the one who did it with me” (Ishikawacho)


wa, so few people in the subway station…

we arrived at Hotel A Silk Tree, packed our stuff, checked out, and headed straight away to Narita, where the next noon we will be boarding flight back to politically-corrupted malaysia.


bye bye yokohama…
by the way, japan has the longest living age of citizens in the world (it means the country also has most old folks since inhabitants survive longer)  bcos of their health care and policy, life style.
look at the photo above, aunty still so hip de clothes.


this is really sardine fish, since so many people, what do we do inside? its promotion time!!


introducing the best drummer to the public


wa, see the MRT also got double deck one loh…
after arriving in Tokyo, we hopped on to another train to Narita, where we have to put up a night before flying back to politically-seriously-corrupted malaysia


people de mrt got map and tell you how much time left to destination, the journey was quite long, from ishikawacho to narita, two journeys of trains added up to about 90 minutes, so some one was really boring, and so he started smiling to himself and made funny gestures…


chin sing has bcome “chi sin”


all the officers at the airport are well-mannered, helpful and alert, not like malaysia, sleepy, black face god, and always trying to eat snakes.

this was our last dinner (i mean last dinner in japan)


it says please take home the plates, bowl, spoon after you finish eating…


we are looking at…


halo the food ok liao boi…


this is simply the BEST food i’ve eaten in Japan for the while trip! the best came at last!

after dinner, we have to wait for 30 minutes for the bus to pick us up to a nearby hotel (since the flight is tomorow) takkan we sleep in airport???and again we had nothing to do, so? its promotion time!

and soon after everyone joined in the fun, and put up an MTV show “live” at Narita airport


woo hoo…

and the craziness did not end here, bcos at about 9.30pm, we finally arrived at the hotel.

and started shooting photos again…


the hotel staffs kept looking at us, at the entire lobby had turned into a make shift photo studio.


left to right: yamaha bass, yamaha guitar, italia, edwards, HIDE LOVE LOVE LOVE, italia, Aria pro, musicman bass

all winners, lesson well learnt in japan.

ok, job done, see you in the final post part 9 in a few days’ time.
