dum vivimus vivamus

A photograph is memory in the raw. - Carrie Latet

what kind of fool would spend just 2 days in Tokyo? well, that’s us. but 2 days is better than never!

i used to just go home early to watch animes on AXN and try hard learning Nihongo through the phrase book my parents gave me more than a decade ago.

walking, breathing, living “japanese” was a dream come true :)

japan on a whim

i never thought i’d ever get the chance to step foot in the land of the rising sun. i sort of conceded already to the fact that the closest i got to it was having (really few) japanese friends and a cousin living there.

but God works in wondrous ways. and i thank Him for giving a sister with lots of “Nihon connection”!

in short - i tagged along. by the way - pictures in the next entries :)

oui

throwback to 2 months ago - took the shinkansen from tokyo to rainy osaka. no sight of mt. fuji (en route). just gray skies, rice paddies, wet roads, brown rivers… #Japan #travel #tbt

while throwing old receipts and whatnots, i found these. instant flashback to 4 years ago. dreams back then were different. maybe theirs too.

i should be writing more often.
i should be writing about everyday.

about them, about where, what and when
