This is Ms Aya who have just returned from her short trip to Japan!
It was a splendid and great adventure in Osaka, Kyoto, Nara and other places. This time I summoned enough courage to go on my own and to great surprise, I managed quite well. I did — get lost along the way but all is well (Laughs nervously).
Those who are on my Facebook and Instagram must be deeply annoyed because I was dumping pictures onto their timeline.
Overall, it was good to have some time to myself and to be someone without an identity for days. When you are alone, you really get the time and peace to think of life and about yourself. It sounds selfish and full of one’s self however it is something that we need to look into especially when you are troubled or in need of self-reformation. Or simply when you need to move on to the next part of your life. By that sentence, I do not mean the after life. XD
What I’m trying to say here is to recount, think and plan ahead. And you need to be alone to do this since it concerns your life path.
Anyway after returning from Japan, my mum keeps pestering me to go again and this time, to find my future husband there.
Sigh… Again with this nonsense.
But I must say — and it’s probably been said by many people by now — The Japanese are really courteous, polite and hospitable.
I did come across a few rude and misbehaved people — however they were Chinese. (-__-)
Speaking of Chinese, I came across a family in the train and we were heading to Universal Studio. It was a Chinese lady whom I believe to be in her 30′s along with her beautiful mixed blood daughter along the age of maybe — 6 ~ 7 years old. And then there was an old man who seemed to be the grandfather of the kid. Well.. I thought he was the grandfather until he started French kissing the younger lady in the most disgusting manner.
I saw — tongues tangoing out of their mouths and I was so disgusted, along with the other Japanese who were there.
The funny thing was — I saw the lady and her daughter again the next day in Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan. I was quite stunted and so did she. Why would you pull a shocked face on me? I didn’t do anything obscene like she did.
Anyway, my mum was saying that I’m not suited for Chinese and should go for a Japanese since I can adapt to their culture and language. I’m having my doubts because people tend to forget that it’s not a matter of what suits my type but it’s also whether I suit other people as well. 2 ways, remember?
And I don’t have any good and worthy qualities about myself so how can I bargain? This has nothing to do with modesty and most of the people around me think this is the case, or low self-esteem. My friends are saying that I’m being picky and fussy which I do not deny. After all, the people who rejected me must have also been fussy so it’s something that we are all doing naturally.
So on track with the Chinese, I just do not get along with them since a very long time ago. You could say my childhood encounter with Chinese hinders me from associating myself with them.
… I should get going now.
Toodles and hope you are having a lovely time too!
