tokyo #2 - tsukiji fish market

below is a bunch of sea creatures photos that you might or might not eat.
but this is tsukiji after all,
the biggest wholesale fish and seafood market in the world.

tsukiji is absolutely fascinating.
you have to go watch videos on youtube to capture the wonders of it.

other than what you can see,
the market does not smell fishy or smelly of any kind.

tsukiji's moving to toyosu in november 2016.
so the next time i'll be in tokyo, there will be no more tsukiji.

the sell knives the length of your arm over here.
it can cut through bones.

the thing they put on takoyaki, maybe?

turret trucks.
they're so cute, i want to drive one!

the not-cleaned fish

octopus so yummy ughh

the busy market in all its glory

seoul #2 - itaewon, N seoul tower, & hello kitty cafe

every big city has its own 'expat town',
and for seoul, that town is itaewon.

itaewon is famous for muslims as the place to go to visit seoul central mosque
and also the place to taste halal korean cuisine :)

itaewon central mosque

flags of different countries

kimchi beef jjigae

about the only pic we had time for sobs
many options for halal food,
this was among the one open that day

after prayers, we moved on to N seoul tower.
it was a cloudy day, though seoul skyline is still something amazing.

tokyo #1 - shinjuku kuyakushomae capsule hotel

i know i'm supposed to finish my seoul trip documentation first,
but right now i'm too excited about tokyo :P
so let me just type up my tokyo experience first..
i promise i'll finish with seoul one fine day, lol.

i was in tokyo from 10/4/16 to 17/4/16.
basically travelled alone, though i also followed trip adik beradik.
(find them on instagram! @tripadikberadik)
followed tour group because i was lazy to do my itinerary :P
but that will be my last time following a group, insyaAllah.

first night in tokyo, i stayed at a capsule hotel.
airasia flight to haneda landed quite late at night,
i managed to arrive at the hotel around 1 am, thru last trains for the day.
nasib baik sampai wehh.

my capsule before i ruined it.

many capsules. can tarik the blinders and tada! privacy.

washroom. this is the place to wash your face, brush your teeth, hairdryer.

complimentary shiseido stuff. looks nice.

bidet toilet which i absolutely have no idea how to operate it.
ni laa masalah barang canggih tapi tak reti pakai -.-"
