Ikebukuro 池袋


After miserable weeks of cultural activities, hard-core Japanese study, and looking for universities, I finally got a break when my Singaporean friend came here for a business trip. We met up at the train station close to my dorm and we traveled down to Ikebukuro Sunshine City to watch a Planetarium show (プラネタリウム“満天”). Frankly speaking, the show was so-so, compared to those shows in theme parks, but nevertheless, it was an enjoyable experience and a very,very much appreciated company from a friend whom we knew each other for 13 years :)

經過漫長與痛苦的日語苦讀,文化活動和尋找大學院,我終於放自己一天假,和一位最近來日本出差的新加坡朋友出去玩一天。我們在宿舍附近的車站會面後,一同搭電車到池袋的Sunshine City天文館。老實說,跟遊樂園的秀相比,遜色許多。但是整體來說還算ok,而且有認識13年的好友相伴還真不錯 :)

*Forgot to add that there's a lot of anime and manga stores in Ikebukuro, such as one of the largest Book-off, Animate, etc. There's also a few shops dedicated to BL comics and goods which were once used to be general comic stores...

It's been a long time since I felt like shooting any photos. But this set meal is truly unforgettable, costing just 1500yen for ladies only :P
我已經好久沒像今天想拍照了。這套餐實在令我難忘,只需1500yen,限女性,便宜吧!?

My friend is not a lady, so he had to order something else.
我朋友不是女生所以只能叫另外一個套餐。

Not to forget that I asked him to help me import some things over like our local delight: FairPrice Garlic Chilli sauce. You must be thinking why I asked him to help me buy Colgate toothbrushes!? I'm not sure why, but Japan just do not have toothbrushes like these! All of their toothbrushes are just simple and small. The most fancy toothbrush has only got zig-zag variation in bristle length. Where's the tongue cleaner, rubbery bristles and protruding tips?

當然不能忘了請他帶一些東西過來給我這個可憐的留學生啦!例如我們新加坡的蒜頭辣椒醬和外國的Colgate牙刷。不知道為什麼,日本的牙刷都設計得很基本而且又小。我以為日本人很會出花樣的,怎麼牙刷都不像我們國家有橡膠刺毛,舌頭擦和突出的尖端呢?

This is the highest record of tissue papers so far collected in just one trip, one area! Great for sweating it out in summer!
這次的面紙真是大豐收啊!大破以往的紀錄!在炎熱的夏季是最好的贈品!
