New Blog!

Hey there! I've decided to continue blogging at a different blog. The MEXT archives and some of my travel posts will remain here, but I'll be moving some stuff over. Hope to see you there!

Air Ticket~

I finally got my air ticket. And I must say, I didn't know that plane tickets were so expensive (O.O). We (all the scholars) were at the embassy on Friday to get our tickets and have one final briefing, and interestingly, our main/first question was "can you bring bak kwa?" But in our defence, this was because we're trying to figure out how to introduce Singapore, and the only thing we can think of is to use food.

My sister helped me take this photo. Left to right: plane ticket, SSAJ brochure.
Top: the envelope it came in, with notes from the briefing scribbled on it.
After the briefing, we all piled into a bus and went to Kumo (at Tanjong Pagar) to eat an incredible 2-hour kaiseki lunch. I know that everyone is going "you don't need it! You're going to Japan!" but really, I'm going to be a student. There's not much chance I can eat such expensive food(:

Now, I really need to finish packing. And find the SIA outfit as our national costume for the entrance ceremony :D

  1. I'm suggesting nothing here, but I will say that if you were an intergalactic traveler who had broken down in our solar system, the obvious directions to rescuers would be: "Go to the third planet and fly around till you see the big red rock. You can't miss it." If ever on earth they dig up a 150,000-year-old rocket ship from the galaxy Zog, this is where it will be. I'm not saying I expect it to happen; not saying that at all. I'm just observing that if I were looking for an ancient starship this is where I would start digging.
