Since we had to take the flight back on Sunday, we had the Saturday off for sight-seeing! I was especially relieved though cause he couldn't come to Tokyo earlier (working) so he only came to see me in Tokyo on Saturday.

Cutting it pretty close there, but thank God we managed to make full use of the day off :)

We took my colleagues to Asakusa for some souvenir shopping. Asakusa is famous with its old temples and old city and I've never been there before; mann I can't believe I've only been to Kyoto for Japanese traditional city. It had always been Shinjuku, Shibuya, Harajuku, Tokyo that I could remember Yamanote Line by heart. (a train line which stops at all the shopping places and famous towns around Tokyo. Take that line if you want a complete round of shopping in Tokyo district!)

Introducing him to my colleagues was weird. I felt so old -____-"

 There are lines of stores along the walk to the Asakusa temple, we had trouble picking out the souvenirs. AND lots of Hello Kitty stuffs too.

Him being all macho in front of my colleagues by holding their stuffs HAHA

 Stopped by at one of the many small stalls selling hot food - and we opted for takoyaki since it's the most famous one here and my colleagues haven't had any yet. Still can't beat the one I've had in Hiroshima, though.

 The team!

 We saw a lot Japanese taking the water from this fountain and wiping the water on their face and hands, but we couldn't figure out why. Let's rephrase that - I couldn't be bothered to ask, cause it was freezing cold! And this is a shot of him pretending to fill the water into the bottle, to see if anyone noticed and tegur him. But apparently they couldn't be bothered, too.

A lot of people told me that I'm lucky to be able to experience going business trip overseas, because I can learn a lot from the meetings during the trip. Truth is, I felt so unprepared; I was thinking of so many things I should've studied first before I attend those meetings cause this is an amanah from the company and so much is expected and I was so worried that I won't do well.

I wish there's a manual on how to perform well during the meetings especially when done in our company partner's place; it's crucial for the company image and our projects, too. Ah I just wish I could learn everything and NOT take forever to understand.

And that concludes the Japan post :) I miss you already.

We had our final meeting in Tokyo where their main headquarter office is, so we get to get out of Chiba town for a while.

I don't know what else to say besides great meeting, had my jaw dropped when I was introduced to the CEO of Mitsui NGH (who btw graduated from Hiroshima University too..too awesomeeee), lunch on the rooftop of a building in Ginza (the place where usually only celebrities would shop), had an awesome view of Tokyo, dropped by Shibuya for the hundredth time.

 I especially love this view the most. It's quite amazing that the left side of me (the upper picture) is a super compact Tokyo with super tall buildings and towers and whatnots, while on my right side (this picture) shows clean rivers, a bridge connecting Odaiba, and some trees. Amazing.

 Us being excited on the rooftop

 Some fresh squid dish, I had to goggle this down my throat so I won't taste the raw smell. But it was so good I swear!

 Some veggie dish to be eaten with bread. Them Japanese obviously don't know me too well

 Hands down, the most delicious fish. EVER.


The CEO of Mitsui NGH. Freaking awesome day.

 And we dropped by Porsche showroom, because one of my colleagues is super obsessed with cars. He insisted that we went inside so practically this is the first time I touched a Porsche in a Porsche showroom. Gasp.

So apparently a Porsche in Japan cost about half a price of a Porsche in Malaysia. Did you know that?!! Malaysia is so expensive, I wish I could move here. Thank God I don't really want to own a Porsche at 25.

 So guys, jealous yet? HAHA.

 Ginza district

 Did you see the line?? It was the first day Japan's largest Uniqlo store open, so people were queuing to get inside. It's a 7-storey store. I wish Zara got one like this..

 And we also went into Nissan showroom. By this time, I was already yawning and yapping away and taking nonsense photos of cars thinking of the Zara store we just passed.

But I actually like this Juke. It has a weird shape but sporty but my purse would just laugh at me for thinking of wanting it.

 In front of the place Japanese usually go for prayer. A church, I think.

Some random Japanese chick I stole a picture of, because I like her hair and the flower.


my brain dump.
