Today i’m supposed to blog about Sapporo Maruyama zoo!
It is just (yea, according to my host, it is just) 45 mins walk away from our apartment so it’s REALLY NEAR.
We went there on the 3rd day. It was a sunny nice day!
That’s Tamiko Okasan in her usual neko coat. Look at the snow-covered divider! The bottom right one looks like a bear no??? 😀
A pooping bear. Erm. Do they do that? (Come on!!! Zoo post!!! Get into the mood already!)
Ok nao it doesn’t look like a bear anymore F the supposedly bear-looking snow-covered divider’s L.
Was holding my (then) newly bought furry camera case happily (related to the theme, going to see snow leopard and all wtf).
And camwhore non-stop
Camwhore WHILE showing off my newly bought (nao 7 months old wtf) furry snow leopard print camera casing wtf.
Passed by Sapporo temple.
Passed by a lot of snow and more snow and much more snow, and we could see the entrance!!!
We happily bought our ticket and went inside. A lot of attractions were closed due to heavy snow (or all animals were just hibernating they dowan come out let us see so they closed it -______-).
So we reached this sign and i wanted to take a picture…
and i realize…
nowhere to be found.
I searched my pockets and my bag again and again (and my host mom was checking HER handbag too, which was silly because i was holding the cam and camwhoring the whole time lol. Like TragicCreamCakeCam is transporter wtf), still NOWHERE TO BE FOUND and i panicked.
If i lost my camera, means ALL MY HOKKAIDO PICTURES WERE GONE AND I MAY AS WELL JUST DIG A HOLE AND BURY MYSELF SIX FEET UNDER SNOW AND FREEZE MYSELF TO DEATH WTF.
And maybe they will then make a statue in front of the zoo to commemorate my tragic death wtf. Like Hachiko.
Then people will come visit Maruyama zoo because they heard about the girl who froze herself to death because she lost her camera here.
And maybe i just think too much.
But. Apparently you didn’t hear that i lost my camera, so i most probably didn’t. And the fact that i have all these photo means it’s really likely that i haven’t lost my camera.
Ok, so i didn’t. 😀
We went back to the ticket counter to report lost item and all the staff went into a search frenzy i felt so paiseh!!!!!!!
Then my host mom ran back to the path where we came from trying to search for my camera T_________T.
And then, a saintly looking being from afar—ok, a saintly looking human in uniform from afar walked towards us. And he was holding something really, REALLY shiny in his hands. (The fact that the object was glittering from his hands added to his saintlyness too wtf.)
So, he was the hero who found my TragicCreamCakeCam. (My host mom forced him to take a picture with me one cuz she knew i would blog about it wtf.)
And so, two things i learnt.
1. Be careful when you camwhore in winter. The snow is so fluffy and soft it doesn’t make the tiniest sound when your camera dropped on the ground.
2. Always, always bling your camera. It may save your life. Or at least, your camera’s life.
Ok, i know this entry is about Maruyama Zoo. (It is, isn’t it? At least it is about me almost losing a camera near Maruyama Zoo. Haderhaha.)
But, the fact that i am getting sleepy, makes it more interesting if i have TWO entries about Maruyama Zoo.
What do you think? Snow leopard, snow wolf (Koyuki woohoo) everything all. 😀
