its been a long time since i last spoke in jap, or wrote in jap for the matter. it has been 3 years since i came back from japan after staying there for a 1 year cultural exchange stint.n it was a 1 year i can never forget. the wonderful times i had there; the joy of learning japanese; the unforgettable memories i had wif my japanese frens; my own trip to tokyo and much much more... so much that at times i wonder if it was jus a fraction of my imagination, a dream that was too real that it was stuck in my mind even after i have waken up so many times... but its real orite. so real that it feels like as if it was only yesterday tat i took my 1st public bath in the Tokyo Youth Centre!!
being on the plane for 8 hours really didn't dampen our spirits. all of us exchange student were pretty excited when we got onto the plane at 9pm at KLIA. on the plane, some of us were too excited to sleep that they practically chatted among each other till late at nite, while others, like me, went to sleep - trying to act cool (maintain image ma ;p ) and hoped that by sleeping, the dreaded 8 hours tat seperate us from japan wud jus fly by.
when i woke up, 8 hours did pass, and nothing beat having a sunrise welcoming us into the Country Of The Rising Sun! that was my 1st time ever withnessing a sunrise from a plane...
to be continued.....
p/s: as i promised, this is my 1st installment to my experience as an cultural exchange student to japan for 1 year... watch out for more ;p
