A week into my 26th-hood, nothing much has changed. Not that it should, just that looking back at the year before, felt that I haven’t achieved much. Felt that my life has been nothing but stagnant. Glimpse into the yesteryear then brought me to question, what have I achieved in life, really? I know perhaps it’s a little too early for the topic at this age but I can’t seem to push it away. Achievement to me is many things. From being able to do something you’re passionate about, being able to put smile on people’s faces, and more importantly being able to feel content with self. I want to make change, impact other people’s life (in good ways, lah,,) and be someone that my family can be proud of. Somehow in many, felt that I fell short.

I can’t really recall when did I first heard about Japan. Was it from the first car that my dad bought years ago (it was a grey Toyota Corolla) or was it from Doraemon? Gotta be one of them (pretty sure it’s the latter considering I have little to no interest at all when it comes to car :p). Either way, 20 years later I found myself exploring the heart of this sugoi country. Had the chance to explore two of its biggest cities – Tokyo and Osaka – and honestly, you should too!
This time around, the travel pack is quite unique as none of us had actually travelled together before. There were six of us – three UM seniors (Adi, Abul and Shah), one officemate (Afnan) and Adi’s former colleague (Achid). I first thought it’s gonna be a challenge for some but hey, turned out we bond just fine. Anyway, as many had requested, here’s our itinerary for the visit.
In total, we were in Japan for 10 days (including the arrival and departure day) and the stay is divided into 2 main parts – Tokyo and Osaka, 5 days each. We arrived at Narita Airport, Tokyo on April 24th and depart for Malaysia from Kansai Airport, Osaka on May 3rd. And yes, we took the slightly more pricey MAS over AA just to experience the luxury (full service for a difference of only RM100 at time we purchase our tickets, it’s a bargain!).
