    I’m back from my business trip at San Francisco. I probably won’t have time to blog about my trip until I am done with graduate school. I have an upcoming makeup test and another assignment due this week. Sigh.

    I wish I am less busy with school work and have more time for myself… Oh well…

    In fact, I have to bring my personal laptop to San Francisco because I have 1 assignment due in the middle of my business trip and I was not able to finish it before my trip. It kind of sucks but oh well. Life as a student with full time job can be sucky at times.

    I finally finished blogging about my Japan trip back in June 2017. It’s my first time travelling in Japan, although it is not my first time landing in Japan. I took a transit flight in Narita Airport when I was flying to SFO back in 2015.

    I didn’t blog all the places we visited because I didn’t upload those photos. I also visited Uniqlo near the Ramen Town as well, and of course Sapporo too. Sadly, I didn’t really take much photos because I was really tired in the trip (I fell sick for 1 month after I came back from the trip too!) and my camera body was spoilt too. :sad: 

    This probably is my shortest compilation of an overseas trip. I promise to be more hardworking in future. Haha. :grin:

    I only managed to visit a curry don place because Xiao Wei can’t take spicy food. Nevertheless, I am still thankful that I managed to visit Yuiga Doxon. It’s one of the famous curry don place in Furano, Hokkaido, Japan.

    I highly recommend you guys to visit there if you are visiting Hokkaido!

    Address: 11-8 Hinodemachi Furano 076-0025, Hokkaido
    Phone Number: +81 167-23-4784

    On a random note, since it was a road trip for us in the trip and weXiao Wei have to drive through several mountainous areas where we lost GPS signal and also see random road signs to warn us of seeing wild deers, bears, etc. It was pretty exciting now that I think about it. Hmm…

    We went to Asahikawa Zoo one of the days and whoa, it’s probably one of our favourite places. :smile: I took many nice photos and I get to see my favourite penguin! Hehe. Shall let the photos do the talking this time round (cause I’m getting lazier to blog in detailed…)

    We went to Ginga-no-taki/Ryusei-no-taki twin waterfalls and also passed by Sounkyo Ropeway. Both attractions are in Daisetsuzan National Park which is Hokkaido’s largest national park. I didn’t take much photos with my camera cause it was drizzling at that time and my camera battery cover is spoilt so I don’t dare to keep using it lest water gets into the body.

    I took photos and videos with my Gopro Hero 5 when I was there and I didn’t upload much from my Gopro to Foto Amore or The Treble Story.
