Ushiku, Ibaraki 20100410
Brought my mum to Ibaraki and we met up with Li Yan. Then we went to Ushiku to see the world's tallest bronze Buddha. Before that, we stopped at the outlet for lunch.
Green tea latte at Bagel & Bagel. Mau's fav bagels.
Avocado and Bacon Bagel
The world's tallest bronze Buddha in the background with an actual size of the head in the foreground.
The statue got the Guinness World Record
Gardeners hard at work
These koi fishes were scary. They were huge and fat. And they were practically like only one fifth submerged. They were trying to get to the food which people throw and those that get washed up to the front. They basically didn't swim, but were just wiggling and using their fins to push them forward.
Dunno what this plant is. But I see it around in winter/spring. Looks like a kind of cabbage to me.
I look tall..... lol.
There was a small petting zoo in the garden surrounding the statue.
Nibbling away at a carrot stick. Cute.
The process of a star jump!
①Preparing to jump
③Straining to be as high as possible
The whole series of pictures were taken separately, in fact in reverse order. We just couldn't get a shot of me in the air and had to try many times. Lol.
Bought new specs! Cheap~
This pic is for sis from Li Yan. Lol.
