2 weeks worth
Audrey and Ginny came to Tokyo, so 4 of us (Liyan and me) went out for dinner at some random 焼肉 place in 上野。After dinner, we headed for dessert at Hard Rock Cafe. Please don't ask me why Ueno is spelt "Uyeno". I have absolutely no idea. If anyone knows, please tell me. I have been wondering too. It is obviously on purpose, but I dunno for what.
Ginny and Liyan, the 2 that were wearing heels and clothes that seem good enough for partying. Me and Audrey decided to stick together coz we were wearing flats and super casual.
Apple crumble with ice cream.
Some chocolate brownie sundae. Huge!
Ok, both were super huge. 4 of us shared and I don't think we finished either of it. Then we headed to the Hard Rock Cafe shop selling merchandise to see. Love the T-shirts, but as usual no $$, so decided to control and WALK AWAY.
The next day me and Liyan went for a 野球 match.
I recieved 2 free tickets from one of our clients who asked me whether I like baseball, in which I answered, yea, if it is Fukuoka Softbank Hawks. So guess what? 2 weeks later, an email came saying that they got me 2 free tickets to a Fukuoka Softbank Hawks VS Tokyo Yakult game! 2 Star Seat tickets! It was held at the Jingu Stadium on a Monday evening. Game started at 6pm. But me, who was in Chiba for factory training, and Liyan who was in Ibaraki Prefecture working, were obviously not going to be on time. In the end, we reached and found our seats by like 8pm?! But how can I complain? The tickets were free. AND Star Seats! My first time being so close to the game/players/field.
Yakult fans cheering with umbrellas. Don't ask me why...but it was quite comical/cute to see. In action. The spectators in the background, and all the way surrounding the stadium on the left were Softbank Hawks fans. After the scoreboard on the right, all the way to where I was sitting were the Tokyo Yakult fans. Heng I didn't bring my jersey nor clappers to cheer. I will be the lone Softbank Hawks fan among a sea of Tokyo Yakult fans. (I can imagine Joel thinking about his jersey now). In action. See that guy on the left on the field? He is standing infront of the Softbank Hawks players bench/dug out or whatever you call it. That was how close I was! Reporters interviewing the Softbank Hawks players after the win. Softbank Hawks players celebrating the win.
Even the plates, saucers, spoons, trays are exactly the same as back at home! I bet they imported them.
Oh, btw Rookies is GOOD! LOVED the drama. Cried like tons during the movie, and it didnt help with having eye infection. So, if it ever gets to Singapore, or if anyone of you can get a hand on it, WATCH IT! And yea, bought my sis the Rookies shirt too. I got one for myself too! Lol.
