It’s been a hectic two months… I was so busy at work. New colleague came in on 25th May and I had been spending entire days teaching her from scratch.
Finally managed to finish teaching all the basic stuff yesterday. Finally had time to take a breather.
Well in the meantime while all these were happening, I have booked yet another trip (?!) to Japan this coming November. Haha! Initially it was supposed to be just a last-minute-planned short Hong Kong trip, but as I was looking through the airticket and hotel bookings and overall costs, I realise with just bit more money thrown in, I could go for a simple Tokyo trip! So after a quick discussion with Bruno (he was also willing to save and splurge a bit more for Japan!), we decided to switch our year end short holiday break from Hong Kong to Japan (Tokyo – Asakusa only, to be precise).
Airtickets were becoming expensive and the promo fares that SQ/ANA were offering were long snapped up with others. What’s left are regular airfares which are really too expensive. Thankfully JAL still has reasonably-priced airtickets, so I managed to get them! Also, we picked Red Planet hotel to stay as the trip will be in my birthday month and Red Planet offers a whopping 45% discount off their prices to members during birthday month. So I managed to save quite a bit despite choosing to stay in a pretty popular area.
The itinerary that I’ve drawn up isn’t too ambitious. I wanted it to be more relaxed but somehow one thing led to another and we ended up having a pretty packed itinerary! Not that we will be rushing to and fro like headless chickens though, but I have wished it could have been more relaxing… can’t be helped though, there’s really too many things to do/see, and too little time!
So now, what’s left is just the waiting….. 5 more agonizing months to the trip. Ohhhh it’s time to start that countdown timer widget at the bottom too.
