It's Been A Year

Since our last trip to Japan. No trip to Japan this year and in 2013. Zaini and I made an agreement to go after Raimie's UPSR in 2014. It's such a long wait. Booohooohooooo!!!!

What I miss most about Japan :
Dipping in this
Riding in one of these
eating a whole lot of this

Raimie had a special birthday wish last year and we agreed to it because his year-end exam result was good. That's always a condition for us to agree with anything that he requested.

Last year, he wanted to visit the One Piece exhibition at Huis Ten Bosch Theme Park, so all three of us made our way to Nagasaki for it!
Daddy didn't mind because he is also an avid fan of One Piece. As a matter of fact, those two have been watching One Piece endlessly this school holiday! That's why they kicked Mommy out and made Mommy ran so that Mommy won't disturb them! LOL
That's Nami.

We got Raimie a small birthday cake
Of course it's chocolate cake, Auntie Ru!

For such a small cake, it took us (or rather Mommy) 4 days(!) to finish it and lugging it around 3 different cities. So yeah, birthday cake is totally optional for this boy. ^^

  3. Ahhhhh!!!! The boy looks exactly like the father!!! Japan - own country, have not visited all yet, no need to go so far lah! Cheaper here, and may even been nicer...and food not a problem at all. Went to a halal restaurant in Japan or was it Korea, served pork leg...but that was in the 80's. Maybe not so bad anymore these days...

    1. I don't exactly purposely look for a halal restaurant when I'm overseas. To me, I try local food but as in all things, when in doubt - ask.

      Plus no need to restrict ourselves whether can go this place or not, experience can't be viewed with monetary value.

      Otherwise, we can also say no need to study overseas, local U also got. :-D

    2. When it comes to food, you are so flexible and modern! Good! My office staff rejected all the Green Tea Kit Kat which I bought from Japan. They said no halal sticker or assurance.

      Delete
    3. Some people can be rather close minded. I have had colleagues who rejected Halal stickers from other countries - Australia, Thailand, etc because they don't trust them. Wei! Not only JAKIM can issue Halal certification.

      Some people ask me how to eat in China and I kept telling them that there are Muslims in China too. Chinese muslims. *pening*

      I don't like to say I'm flexible but I rather think that what I choose to eat is not because I blindly follow a chop but rather my understanding of what Halal means. Knowledge is best. Use it.

      Delete
    4. But that said, everyone is entitled to their own belief. So, if someone has doubts about eating something, let them be because you can't eat what you doubt. Can't pity food (or food to be like chicken before its slaughtered) too. You pity it, you cannot eat it.

      Maybe I'll burn in hell with what I believe but it's my perogative. ;p

      Delete
    5. I understand your thoughts. Many Indonesian folks are like this too.

      Delete
    6. I wonder about the Halal food too, so I asked my Malay colleague who went to Paris and he said he choose to eat seafood only.

      When in doubt, eat fish.... that's what he told me :D

      Delete
    7. Halal doesn't only mean the food has no pork. Anything that can be harmful to us cannot be considered Halal too. Hygiene also is a factor. How food is prepared is too. This is what you'll be told by Masjid Negara staff. :-D

      Your friend is kinda right, when in doubt eat fish. But make sure no alcohol content in there. If got, tarak boleh makan. :-D
