Pada bulan July lepas
kapal aku berpeluang
untuk men'discharge'kan cargo
ke pelabuhan Chita

Jadi,
of course aku tidak akan
melepaskan peluang
untuk ke bandar membeli belah

bandar yang terdekat adalah
NAGOYA

persoalannya sekarang
adakah terdapat "NAGOYA TEXTILE" disana?
hahahahaha

Aku keluar ke bandar giliran kumpulan yang kedua
thats mean keluar jam 6 petang

Perjalanan dari Chita Port ke Nagoya Port
Lebih kurang 45 minit

Dihantarnya ke Nagoya Port
Seperti di hujung dunia
selatan Nagoya

Apa yang terdapat disitu?
First sekali
Nagoya Aquarium
tapi aku tak masuk situ pun
sebab dah tutup
dan nampak macam tak best pun
ala-ala old school

Stesyen yang paling dekat disitu adalah NAGOYAKO
atau lebih dikenali sebagai Nagoya Port Station

Dari Nagoyako ke Sakae
Tiket dalam 260yen
Lebih kurang RM10
Mahal siot!

Dah sampai Sakae
Wow....
besar jugak bandar alah nie



Stesyen train dier besar giler
dikenali sebagai Oasis 21

kluar-kluar je dari Oasis 21 tu
akan dapat nampak Nagoya TV Tower
tinggi
ala-ala Eiffel Tower

So berpeluang emas untuk mengambil gambar
aku mengambil keputusan untuk berpecah dengan orang lain
better aku jalan sorang-sorang
shopping sorang-sorang
lebih senang dan cepat
nak bawak orang lain sangat leceh

Siapa nak ambik gambar aku?
itulah kegunaan Tripod!
malas aku nak menggangu orang jepun untuk suruh diorang ambik gamba
leceh...
dah mostly gamba yang orang ambik
background yang diorang ambik,
was not fulfill my expectation....

tanpa membuang masa
dengan kuasa kuda
aku berjalan terus
untuk mencari butik ZARA

ZARA tengah salesss....
tersangat murahhh...
so, aku borong 3 pasang kasut kat sini,
nanti aku nak borong lagi time aku sampai di Osaka...

Aku shopping dalam Zara sampai kedai Zara tu tutup
Aku tanye orang Jepun tu
"What time this shop close?"
Terus orang jepun tu jawab
"NOW"

aku tengok sekeliling, memang dah tak da orang dah
tinggal aku sorang
aku pi counter, terus bayar

once aku melangkah keluar pintu kedai
terus pintu kedai tu tutup


puasssnya aku shopping!!
Yeah
mission accomplish

Mission seterusnya adalah mencari TAKOYAKI
bola-bola octopus...
nasib baik jumpa

masalah-masalah
orang jepun kedai ni tak pandai cakap english
nasib baik at last dia faham



aku borong semua takoyaki kat kedai tersebut
sampai diorang bagi free lagi beberapa bijik
sebab aku beli semua tako dier
and kedai dia nak tutup



jepun tu asyik berterima kasih je ngan aku
sambil tunduk, dia cakap HAIT HAIT tanpa henti
aku cakap... Ok Ok...welcome welcome......

hehehe...



then aku teruskan perjalanan aku sekitar SAKAE
mostly after 8pm
kebanyakan kedai dah tutup
awal giler tutup..
tak syiok langsong...



kalau kat KL, jam 4 pagi tu macam 12tengahhari...
boleyyy

matilah nak bandingkan KL ngan Jepun....

anyway...
I'll be back Nagoya...
Best la jugak Chita Port...
tapi Senbuko still the best lah!

Sampai ketemu lagi....

Malacca | Episode 05 | Trishaw Ride / Beca

Location: Asia » Malaysia » Malacca City

Sebelum perjalanan

Siapa yang pernah dengar lagu
"Abang Beca, Abang Beca di tengah jalan.."
Saya!!!!

Oklah, kali ini aku ingin menceritakan tentang
satu jenis pengangkutan traditional
yang di kenali sebagai Beca

TRISHAW in english...
the name reminds me one of the novel title I had read a long time ago..

Pilihla yang mana satu yang anda nak naik
Sesungguhnya jika anda ke bandar Melaka
Maka terserempaklah dengan banyak beca

Berwarna-warni
Dan mengikut peredaran zaman
beca sekarang dah moden
ada sound woofer
memainkan lagu mengalahkan kelab malam

Kebanyakan Beca berada di area A'Famosa

bukan sekadar memainkan lagu-lagu zaman dahulu
bahkan lagu-lagu Lady Gaga pun ada

Bak kata org Sarawak selalu cakap,
"Ko adaaaaaaaa???? sikkk adaaaa..."
"angkat muka ko"

Kalo orang malaya cakap "Nan Hado"

Lagi-lagi beca

Aku tertarik dengan cara mereka menghias beca-beca mereka
sungguh kreatif
ada yang menggunakan bunga-bunga plastik
labuji-labuji
lampu lip-lap-lip-lap (sarawak: lampu cabik)

dan ada jugak yang tidak ketinggalan untuk meletakkan patung Barbie....
Motif letak patung Barbie???
maybe nak tarik pelanggan kanak2....

yeee...control macho tekla....

Pekerjaan membawa beca aku rasanya sangat menguntungkan
sebab itu, kebanyakan angka beca semakin meningkat

sebagai contoh
aku naik dari AFamosa ke Replica Kapal Flo De Mar
perjalan pendek tu je dah RM 10...
tu pun aku dah cukup tawar menawar
kalau pusing satu bandar Melaka?
ambik kau.....

dalam perjalanan

aku mestilah memilih beca yang sangat Vogue....
mula-mula aku target beca main lagu Lady Gaga
But, terpilih beca memainkan lagu Maher Zain...

Adoi.... insaf pulak aku tetiba

colourful beca!

Ni aku nak kongsikan
Video perjalanan beca aku

Siapa yang tak pernah cuba naik beca
Please, cubalah
Mula-mula memang aku malas nak cuba


But at least kita dah naik beca at least once in a lifetime
eventhough bosan...
Enjoy riding a Trishaw in Malacca..
I Love Malacca :)
:)

Scenery...... Number 9?

When I was younger
I was confused between 3 locations
Sri Aman, Simanggang, and Samarahan

Alice Fort

But then it seems Sri Aman & Simanggang turn out to be the same place
And Samarahan only next to Kuching
Actually, its originally known as Simanggang
Renamed around 1974 because of the signing of the peace treaaty
End of the communist era
Seriously?

Brownish river

Sampan

Sri Aman
I had been here a few times
But never staying at this area

Do not sit here when watching BENAK in action, you will getting wet


The town itself is a transit to refuel your vehicle
Or you can stop to fulfill your stomach
or even when you want to use a toilet

Observe BENAK from here


The food stalls at the Sri Aman-Sarikie junction is quite famous
Hotspot for pitstop

Alice Fort


To make a story (Untuk dijadikan ceritalah!)
My father got a meeting in Sri Aman
So, he asked me to drive him all the way to Sri Aman

Sri Aman Town


About 2hours journey from Kuching to Sri Aman
But its took 4hours if you travel by bus

Alice Fort
 This is my gold opportunity to explore the city
Even though nothing much there
But still, I need to get to know my own country

Somewhere

My father's sibling live here
But seriously, I do not remember his face at all
Been a long time
We were not visiting him for this trip

Fauna...I like GREEN

We stayed at Crystal Inn
Cheap place but quite comfortable
I am impressed
Just on top of Supersave, same row with KFC

I stayed here!


When I was free doing nothing  in the hotel
Just wonder around the town
And the village scenery

Temple

By the way
Sri Aman Popular with its BENAK
What the hell is that?
Its a tidal wave
You can surf on it

The Giant Tree


But, there is a twist
surfing with crocodile...
nice huh....
At the Wharf
Around the town
  You should see the PESTA BENAK by yourself
Its ....[wait for it] awesomel lah
Share with you some video of TIDAL BORE FESTIVE...

Which way should I take?

On May 2011, my vessel discharging cargo at Himeji, Japan.
So, of course I took this opportunity to explore the city.


HIMEJI, sounds very familiar right?
I am not sure why it is sounds familiar, at first it is because HIMEJI-NOMOTO....
but, its wrong,.. should be AJI-NO-MO-TO
forget bout it....


Help! Help! We are losing our way....
Hey you... don't you dare to copycat our recipe!
Lunch time

Ice-cream anyone?

So adorable!

Japanese, very good  at promoting their business. Non-Stop!


this is my first time getting into this city
Actually, Himeji quite near with Osaka....
Nothing much different from other places [i mean in Japan]..
But, Himeji is a a very tourist friendly places,
Free maps everywhere...


Himeji Castle from far.... still under renovation
On the way to the castle
Stunning view from the Himeji Castle park
What is Himeji popular for?
Of course, the wonderful Himeji Castle!


Don't want to visit real castle, miniature castle should be Ok lah!
  
The lost tourists
In Japanese, this castle is sometimes called shirasagi, or 'white heron'
A title that derives from the castle's stately white form.
In the following centuries the castle was home to 48 successive lords.
The Castle Gatekeepers
Lost in the urban city
Shopping street

There were some event happening around Himeji....

Queue up for the restaurant.... must be delicious!

1 word = SHOPPING!
But unfortunately, the castle still under renovation process until 2015...
So, I decided not to enter the castle
Exploring around the castle park was enough
Castle Ticket's counter
Because I only got limited time to explore the city
I decided to do shopping around the street

CAUTION: That is not one of the POKEMON character.... it is a castle MASCOT!
Friendly Japanese. Everytime I took her pics, always be in a monkey character. And no idea why... or maybe she know Malaysia & Orang Utan --> Commonwealth 98 Mascot... maybe...
Quite OK but still not very fashionable like Osaka City..
for me, Osaka still the best for fashion...



Roger and Out!


p/s: Its been a long time from my last post... welcome back for me lah!
