A year ago today, I set foot in Japan and my life was never the same. ✨
This is a collection of clips I never intended of using. But after a year of living in a foreign country, I thought that it’s only fitting to put captured moments together.
It has been a rollercoaster ride of ups and downs; of laughter, tears and sweat, but I wouldn’t have done it any other way.
Cheers to a year in Tokyo! 🥂

Kamakura has always been an item on my to-visit list since I set foot in Japan. Yesterday, we finally found the time to fit a day trip in our busy schedules. I have to admit, my friends and I were dead tired from a long week’s work, but I’m so glad we pushed through.

It was a lazy Sunday afternoon until I realized the Golden Gai Summer Matsuri (festival) was today! Without any minute to waste, I jumped out of bed, took a quick shower, and went to Shinjuku.

So my friend and I braved the world’s busiest crosswalk, the Shibuya crossing.
When in Japan, one shouldn’t miss the iconic scramble. It gives you an instant feel of the busy city life but reminds you to stop and smell the roses, take everything in. Continue reading “Brave the world’s scramble”
Realized I haven’t had a life lately post in a while. Let me catch you up. ☺️ Continue reading “Life lately”
Last week, we spent the whole Saturday out at Ueno, a 20-minute train ride away from Ikebukuro. We strolled around the place, taking in the tranquility and the welcoming fresh air. Continue reading “Exploring Ueno”
I knoooow, this is one week late, but here it goes.
We capped off our Golden Week with another day tour, this time around Tokyo. My vision of Japan, Tokyo in particular, has always been filled with busy intersections, crowded trains, and the bustling, fast-paced city life. But wait, the capital has so much more to offer.
