Mini Travel Log: Tokyo, Japan

Tokyo has become all too familiar to me. I've been there for the past 3 consecutive years. Knowing this complicated metropolitan city inside out is a big bonus. I can now walk without maps nor even need to speak to the majority of Japanese who don't want to speak English. Without prior planning, I can now just hop onto any train and go to where my heart desires. While shopping in Shinjuku, I decided to bring my colleagues for sushi. Among the hundreds of Yakitori pubs in the area, we managed to find a secluded sushi restaurant which serves fresh sushi on conveyor belts. We had the best meal on a bargain price. You don't have to pay premium price for good sushi if you know where to find it. Nor you need to wake up 4-5am for Tsukiji Fish Market sushi.

Penang and Phuket Combo Trip

Hello all readers. Sorry for the lack of updates. I have been away for holidays and then bogged down with multiple backlogs and work. I took a trip to Penang for my colleague's marriage. Penang food is superb and I don't mind returning there for more.

Continuing on from Penang, I took a flight to Phuket for my vacation. This small coastal town is the gateway to even more beautiful islands like the Phi Phi Islands. The scenery is just amazing and out of this world. In Thailand, one will not leave the country without trying out the massage. The Thai massage is just so good and cheap. For a person like me who doesn't like massage, I enjoyed it for the first time and did it almost everyday while enjoying the sunset by the beach. What a beautiful life!
