Finally updating this space because we're going on HOLIDAY!!!! 😉
Super excited to be travelling with the family again after awhile and while we're going to be travelling with a baby (😂) am so stoked!!
As usual, I went to get my lashes done with Kelly (@_lashbykelly on IG! ) before the trip so I don't have to spend so much time on makeup and still look AMAYZINNG. 😉
Hehe btw not sponsored hor. Paid for my own lashes to be done and I still feel it's damn worth it! Only $38.
Also persuaded my SIL to go. 😂
Uh my brows damn messy, lashes also messy. But still!!!!!
I got the thinner lashes this time round cos my own lashes are not strong enough to take the weight of the heavier lashes. But I really liked the look?
I like them long and curly so longer and curlier the better for me!!! 😉
Haha showing off my SIL's lashes. Also not sponsored hor 😂 nowadays everything also must say first.
BB taking a nap before takeoff.
We're actually on the flight now and we're flying JAL!
It's quite a good experience so far (screens and seats are much newer and better than the usual SQ planes) but the service is….not so good la 😂
They don't speak fluent English and stopped me from using my humidifier because they thought it was a steamer and that it would set off the smoke alarm.
When I tried explaining, uh. She couldn't understand 😭
Haha my mum looks forward to the nuts on the flight all the time (nut junkie) but we opened up the pack and….it's Japanese crackers with 1 almond inside 😂😂 like really 1 almond. All of our packs have 1 almond.
In case you're wondering, yes! I got in flight WiFi because I needed to settle some OBC stuff. I am also very sleepy right now 😂
Meal time! For first service we had….miso soup, some veg+egg mix, SOBA and fruit for appetisers.
And I had curry naan for main 😂😂 so funny first time I see curry naan.
Daniel has the Jap breakfast of salmon and miso rice! Both were quite yummy hehe. Service is also getting better. Maybe just cos…food makes everything better.
Eh the butter chicken with naan was really quite legit 😉🔥
Another 4 more hours. 😭
I think I look forward to plane rides but halfway through I get so restless and tired. I prefer night flights I'm not sure why. I think it just feels quieter and it's easier to fall asleep cos the cabin lights are dimmed 😎 <— putting on my sunglasses to dim the lights.
So tired…I'm already thinking of my first meal. Anyone has any Tokyo recommendations!!! I know Husband Ng is super excited.
I've been doing some research as well, but it's quite difficult for a group of 7+1 (😭) to eat at ramen bars! So if you guys recommend any amazing family restaurants please let me know! 😉
Thank youuuu ♥️
I am rudely awakened from my nap because my nose is so dry it hurts 😭 please let me use my humidifier. 😭 #dayretravel
Sorry for the lack of updates!
But we basically touched down in Japan at around 4+ and only reached the hotel around 6 due to the horrific jam!
Didn't help that poor BB was overtired and couldn't sleep in the car.
We did however enjoy our first dinner at Yayoi (no choice cos near + everyone was hungry and tired) and it turned out pretty well I gotta say!
My parents and brother + SIL and baby went back to the hotel to rest while Daniel and I explored Shinjuku!
Haha wtf we clocked 10k steps leisurely walking around and looking into izakayas. I really quite like this area! It's like racey and exciting and…..really really interesting.
Daniel says he always feels safe in Japan even if we are in the red light district 😂😂😂
And of course true to tradition, we dapaoed some food back from the combini for supper.
I chose some super huge fluffy white thing from the oden pool, not knowing what to expect. Daniel kept saying it was bread but omg It ended up being the FLUFFIEST and SOFTEST fish cake ever? Almost like a fish foam.
It was glorious but I was damn full after that 😂😂😂
I am dead beat now and lying in my hotel bed contemplating what to wear and where to go tmr.
My feet are aching but I am already damn excited. Hehe. Plus I have my humidifier blowing mist in my face so I am damn blissful and happy.
Goodnight you guys!!!! ♥️♥️
