Hello lovelies! How have you all been? My life has been quite exciting recently. XD I don't have a camera to document everything at the moment, but you know what? It's actually quite refreshing to just enjoy everything with my own eyes. It's wonderful how pictures can immortalize moments but it's another thing to use your senses and create memories in your mind. It's beautiful.

I LOVE taking pictures and I still will, don't get me wrong! But there's beauty in moments that you experience without looking behind a camera. It gives me a warm and fuzzy feeling.

About a week ago, I visited the Tokyo Sky Tree. I remember a familiar scene from Taipei 101, looking down the buildings that seem so puny. But it's different that day-- I was looking at this enthralling landscape of buildings and trees as the sun set behind them. It was amazing.

I did take some pictures with my iPod, how can't I! So here you go. XD

P.S. ALL PICTURES ARE GRAINY. :'D I may get myself a micro 4/3 again on my first pay day. :P


If only I had a better camera with me. TT_TT
At least this image is imprinted in my mind as well. :P


It was quite relaxing wathcing the city lights blink as I drank tea. (*^^*)

Also last week, my friends and the boss went to Shounan-daira, Hiratsuka. It's one of the popular places to see the sunrise or sunset, I've been told. I enjoy sunsets quite often, but I've only been able to witness the sun rise a couple of times or so. And that experience at Shounan-daira, it was simply brilliant! The sun slowly peeked from the horizon as a line of red, behind a small mountain. And then it slowly rose up, still burning red at first, then becoming more orange and yellow. What a magnificent sight, really! Waking up at 3:30am was so worth it! (*^^*)

いいな!

Lovers' locks! I know there's such a thing as this in Italy and  in Korea... but is there anything like this in the Philippines?!

No words!

It was truly one of the most beautiful things I've seen in my life. (*^^*)

Except for sight seeing (lol) I've also been enjoying going out a lot with my friends and just experiencing everyay Japanese life. I've been to the karaoke with co-workers too and tried going to the bar for the first time in my life. Hahahaha. ; 3 ; I knoooow what you're thinking! I'm 20-ish. lol But it's never to late to try things out. :P

Just in case they don't want their faces out there. :P

In a couple more days, I'll be going to Disney Sea! Gosh. Am I burning money! Hahahahaha. But these are things that I know will make beautiful memories and those are way more important than money. :P

I'll try to take pictures with my iPod when we go to Disney Sea so I can share it with you guys too.(*^^*)

Well that's it for now! I hope everyone is doing great.

Always take care!

xoxo,
Jona

In Japan

I've been so busy since I got here that I didn't really have time to blog. Well, I've got some free time right now and I can write something. ^^


It's been 11 days since I got here. My friends and co-workers say that I was able to adjust quite quickly and that's probably because Japan was how I imagined it to be. I've talked with so many Japanese people during my stay in my previous company that most of the things I see around me seem so familiar--the bicycles, the students in uniform, the kind people.



I feel so blessed to have come during Spring time when the wind is not bitter cold nor hot and scorching like in my home-country. I'm also able to witness the beauty that Cherry Blossoms are. I've enjoyed o'hanami so many times since there's a woman's university in front of my workplace with lots of cherry blossom trees, but I just never seem to tire of it!


Today is quite rainy, though. The fragile petals of the pink flowers are slowly falling off... It's a sad and beautiful thing at the same time.

I'm trying to enjoy every moment here in Japan, I want to stay for a long time, afterall. :) I do miss my family though. There are things I did in the Philippines that  I can't do anymore. But there are also so many new things to try here so I guess it's fine!
