sunny summer ~ hot breeze ~ tanned skin and me…

i wish i would write this earlier than now – but, as i expected…
me was totally knackered!(´。`)

the “peak of summer” equals ME…ME…me! ~ ~ ~

with a non-stop journey here and there (well, only within 2 – 3 countries ~ eh wait…4 countries with my own) then with a quite packed schedules…
it was tots fun! yet bittersweet! yet…my heart fulfilled! ❤

my summer began with…Japan 🇯🇵

left for Tokyo in mid June (just a day after Eid Fitr ~ thanked God my parents gave me this “special” permission to go pheeew!)…arrived in one morning day ~ then went to the Concert in the afternoon…
I was quite worried if i could fall asleep ~ yet i know my friend will slap me if i did!
so, basically i survived ~ and i believed i sleep like a fat pig that evening!

had some relax days in Tokyo before we were heading to Amami, Kagoshima – we took Vanilla Air from Tokyo Narita to Amami ~ it was around 2 hours flight…
if you ask…Amami is just nearby Okinawa…so, we were going south (if you still looking at the map ~ ~ ~ these AMAMI TRAVEL and AMAMI MAP would help)

Miss Lou (originally Stella Lou from Tokyo Disneysea) ~ posed in The Scene with the pink heart background as the hotel symbol? (i think so) ~ ~ ~

she looks really cute right ~ ~ ~ with that boots!!!

so, why this hotel? The Scene is the hotel where my favourite #1 group stayed before for their bonus recording, so my friend and I went there and stayed for a night.

The hotel was really nice ~ just the weather was dull!
when we were there…it was raining and cloudy ~ yet, we did enjoyed The Scene private beach ~ the breakfast was also really nice 。^‿^。

We also crossed the strait to Kakeromajima with ferry (again ~ for the same reason why we went to Amami Island) fufufu ~ ~ ~ (/≧ω\)
My friend contaced someone in the island that could bring us to go around.

The trip continue ~ after Amami…we flew back…but not to Tokyo ~ we flew to Osaka…for our next leg of the Concertsss!

Another friend who lives in Osaka joined us – and it was her first time to watch this group. We were a bit worried – whether that she would like it or not yet we were also curious how will she judge the group itself…
aaand..it turned out…she likes it!!! we were yeaaay!!!
didn’t take long for her to ask for their songs! (´꒳`)

…i’ll continue next post with another summer in London ~ ~ ~

the 2017 Super Summer from Kanto to Kansai to Kyushu ~

arrived in early August, Tokyo was surely hottie hot ~ well, around 30 – 32 degrees Celcius…

then the next day, i off to Osaka (Shin-Osaka) ~ and my accommodation was excellent! just 2 – 3 mins walk from the station and the view is…Shin-Osaka Station!

I was in Osaka ~ bluntly for watching a butai 🙂 this butai was my first ever butai in Japan ~ and i watched it alone! well, a friend from Singapore was watching at the same time and day but different seats…so, arrived in Osaka quite a day before the show…i decided to look for the venue – since i am not so familiar with Osaka itself…

with a train map and much help from Google Map…found it!
as actually i was also looking around the venue and tried different paths – as which one is easier for me to come here…since Morinomiya got JR Line and Subway *but a lot of stairs to walk up with Subway ~ sighhh… ~ yet with JR, its quite a walking distance compares to Subway fufufufu…

after somedays in Kansai area – i went back to Tokyo, then i went to NEWS Koyama’s Ramen Shop *grinning hehehehe…

managed to see Koyama’s Mom ~ and i also witnessed that some fans are giving presents – either its for her or for her son ~ *uhmmm which one is likely to occur? fufufufufu…

the next day, my friend and me – we went to Tokyo Disneyland – we were actually just want to go to the Bon Voyage “Disney Mega Store” – for the sake of buying Stella Lou (for me) and Gelatoni (for my friend) – then later on we knew that to buy Duffy and friends merchandises, we need to enter the DisneySea! *sighhh ~ Disney really know how to make money huh? ~ ~ ~ so, after some minutes contemplation…we decided to buy the eeer was it Starlight or Twilight ticket? anyway, the ticket that we bought is to enter either Disneyland or Disneysea after 15:00…

this is the huge billboards that we saw when we off from the JR Maihama ~ i shrieked out when i saw Stella Lou (the purple bunny) ~ then Gelatoni is the green cat fufufufu ~

then, after bought all those merchandises, we off to the lake to see the evening parade! Disney just never fail to amaze me!!!

the next day ~ on August 12th, we went again to Karuizawa! and i ate double scoops of Choco Mint ice cream again eh…it was gelato! 🙂 the one that NEWS’s Tegoshi ate during the summer trip to Karuizawa fufufufu…

since basically i love mint *high five Tegoshi!!!* so, my love for this flavour just never dies! and afterwards, i found this!

i was “GYAAAAAAAAA!” and then this drink has been my favourite drink in everywhere i go fufufufu *alright enough to fulfill my sugary needs! LOL

after Concert’s day on the 13th…my friend and me flew from Tokyo to KYUSHUUU!!!

some photos from Kyushu ~ where i went to Beppu ~ Yufuin ~ Aso ~ Hita then last Kumamoto…

i tried public onsen for the first time in Beppu, my first time stayed in a fine ryokan in Yufuin, then experience the ranch in Aso, shopped in Edo-like area in Hita and my first time to eat horsemeat sashimi in Kumamoto…all of these are beyond priceless…
i can’t tell everything in bits by bits! yet even it was a hottie hot summer ~ it was amazing!!! 🙂
i know i will not be able to walk thru this all alone…thank you 236! ❤

sincerely,
あちゃんより
