There was a sense of refined elegance in Itsukushima shrine. Bewitching charm that graced over the water. Asia’s version of Mount Saint Michael. I spent 10 hours trying to capture the mesmerizing Itsukushima shrine 厳島神社. At every hour the view was new, at every hour the lighting was different. I wanted to capture them all. Hugely sun burn afterwards, completely lost track of time. There were virtually no bad photo spot over here. But hey, that view was just GODLIKE. Top 3 scenic spot in Japan, a title well deserved.
In a safari tour, one needs to know when to give it up. It saddens me greatly that yet another tourist has became lunch. Lions are CARNIVORES. We’re food, period! We are easy snacks that run slower than most animals. Opening the windows / get out of the car is not good.
The below are ‘safe’ pictures to take.
The below is ‘GET THE HELL OUT OF THERE’ picture.
Had a Maiko make over experience and it was breath taking, literately. First of all, starting from the underclothing, breathing feels like a privilege. Every breath becomes an effort. After 2 hours of hair, make up and serious layers of clothing, the faux Maiko me is made. Tata! Asian deluxe me.
Nakano udon school 中野うどん学校 is located in Kotohira 琴平町, just outside of Takamatsu 高松市. This small town has it all going – shrine, onsen and lots of sanuki udon eateries. Kotohira is mainly known for its shrine, Kompirasan daigongen 金刀比羅宮… in short, it is the shrine with a 785 steps hike (people are so faithful). I will write about this shrine later. For now, it is all about the udon making experience.
The class is in 100% Japanese, but the teacher is well experienced in body language; no problem at all 🙂 The chef goes on to explain how to make the dough and the saline solution.
Went to the Louis Vuitton exhibition last week and here is a quick load down.
LV is out to entertain visitors with tech visuals and suit up tour host. My personal favourite ‘exhibition’ is ‘Meet with an artisan from Asnieres’. It is a short Q&A session, but lovely, make LV feels more warm & fussy. She doesn’t speak English, so LV has a translator on standby. Nice designer touch 😉 Also get to meet the pieces from the AW2015 run way – some are for up close and personal, available for touching.
I don’t have much to say about the AW2015 collection, apparel is my real life profession after all. Career limiting move for me to comment, right?
