Am back from our winter holidays and I feel even more tired after the break. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not being ungrateful for while I do enjoy being away from work for the past week or so, but the body has also taken ‘a beating’ with the amount of food and drink throughout the entire trip with the gang (this time round, 22 of us in total).
Ditched the camera back home and went with photos taken on the iPhone. Quality may not be of the best, but it’s good enough. Here are some random shots to remember the trip by:
We arrived into Tokyo at about 11pm and after checking-in the hotel, all I could think of was sleep. The Man, on the other hand, could only think of Ichiran Ramen. So we piled on the layers and took a slow walk in the cool winter breeze to our favourite ramen joint.
Figured since we made it all the way there, I might as well indulge in a bowl of ramen noodles (sans oil in my bowl of soup).
Look who’s the happy camper here! If you are interested to find out more about Ichiran Ramen, check out the posts that I’ve written previously.
Undeniably my favourite place to go pick up beauty products in Tokyo. This store was close to where we lived in Roppongi. The best part? It was still open at midnight!!
A new brand that I’ve come to discover with cool products. The only thing that’s stopping me from acquiring them? The price point. Pretty ex IMO. And guess what? For once, I didn’t really feel like shopping much in Tokyo. Shock much? Yeah, I’m shocked as well. ;0
Pint-sized servings of coffee or matcha latte only available in Starbucks Tokyo!
And we took onsen to a whole new level when we smuggled our own cups and Umeshu into the hot springs. ;p Yup, crazy Singaporeans on-the-loose in Hakuba.
We did also squeeze in some time to check out a couple of restaurants (which explains for the food coma and how I need to lose more weight after this trip). Reviews on those to come soon.
