As some of you already know, I often don’t spend much money on accommodation. I enjoy the pricier establishments of course, but many of my fondest memories were produced in much humbler places. Little Asia guest house, Minami-Aso, was one of those.

 

The guesthouse was run by this super mom and her dad (no English at all) + 2 kids lol. They’re so friendly and willing to help / chat. Homely Japanese hospitality.

 

Hubby and I stayed there for 3 nights. It was amazingly simple and homely. So relaxed with the wooden all over look. Tatami on a bunk bed?

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.

Let’s do something different and do an airline experience sharing? Nope, this is not a cool first class / business class post. Just plain economy class. Why?  I just really enjoyed their food & their value for money surprised me *LOL*

How to start this one? I was craving for some ramen… WHAT on EARTH were they doing?!?!?!?! First of all, the original Hakata concept was simplicity and rustic feeling. So WHY on earth did they glam up and botox the London branch? That’s right, I felt that they’ve BOTOX the place.

It is another round of sunscreen (mostly) empties review! I use sunscreen everyday, even if I don’t leave home. I use up 50ml every 4 to 6 weeks and empty around 9 to 13 facial sunscreens a year. I bought everything with my own money, hence I do try to finish the product even if it is horrible. However, if it is just WAY intolerable, I do give up and just throw it away.
