Going to Japan...

Tomorrow anyway. I'm leaving for Kuala Lumpur in a few hours time and then heading to Japan on Sunday morning.

Feeling extremely nervous and excited since I'll be fulfilling two of my lifelong dreams
1) Seeing snow
2) Going to Japan

I live in Malaysia and in case you're not entirely too sure where it is, it's easier to explain that we are in between Singapore and Thailand. That's us right there - in the middle. :P

Unlike Sir Terrible Memory who studied in UK for 6 years, I have never really left home (except for holidays and we usually go in Spring or somewhere equally hot) not to mention the temperature these days in Penang is starting to hit over 39 Celsius and it's so hot its nauseating.

We'll be back soon!

Thank you Sir Terrible Memory for fulfilling my lifelong dream. I LOVE you! Terrible memory and all!

P.s: I know that most of my readers has been to other fantastic places (Machu Pichu, London, Korea etc) and some has even been sponsored to Japan twice but..but..for me, it's a new experience and I'm so happy!!

Oh, considering Sir Terrible Memory is also Sir Stingy, he managed to get us the very reasonable flight to Japan via AirAsia. Visit our blog at http://hungrybearandcat.blogspot.com/ for the list of breakdowns and how much we spent for our Japan trip excluding shopping :D

Here's an excerpt from Hungrybearandcat:


So what have Cat and Bear been doing? Cat's been busy planning for our trip to Japan! We've managed to scrounge up enough money to pay a snakehead to smuggle us aboard an Airasia plane to Osaka International Airport, and I've been busy with making reservations at pet hotels and planning the itinerary.

A lot of our friends and family are surprised when we say that we are flying to Japan, as the perception is that Japan is a very very expensive place. The purpose of this post is to breakdown our costs so other would-be travellers can get an idea on how to travel to Japan without selling a kidney.

BEAR: I have a sneaky feeling it'll most probably be bear's bile rather than Cat's kidneys...

Good to hear that you got a good discount on the flight. : ) More money to spend on shopping!
