Japan

Happy place

DSC_2776

If I’m asked what made me most happy last year, my answer would definitely be Japan. Specifically, Tokyo. Looking at the pictures back while playing some J-pop track on iTunes makes me a smile, but it also makes me long for the place even more. No place has left me that much of an impact.

A friend once told me that if I plan to go on a holiday, go elsewhere. Why go to the same place over and over again? But the thing is, I think I’ve really found my happy place. I don’t mind going there every year. If I’m given a choice to go somewhere, I’d still pick Japan.

Why? Possibly it’s because it’s a lively city. Possibly because I generally like Japanese and how civil they are. Possibly because I was surrounded with people I get along with so well. Possibly because I get to properly let loose. Possibly because of the food. Possibly the combination of everything mentioned.

Just thinking about it makes me happy 🙂

    Hi. I studied at the Caulfield campus, which is only 20mins tram from Malaysia Hall. Clayton campus is further, in the suburbs. Kalau duduk Hall pun kena naik tram and train, will take you around one hour plus (waiting time etc.) so it’s better for you stay in Clayton I think. Google for “gumtree accommodation”. Ada banyak I think. But since it’s your first sem, I suppose, duduk dekat campus lah paling senang. You can apply directly to Monash I think 🙂
