is sooooo beautiful.
Eh wrong picture, sorry.
We drove to Kyoto and met our host Katou.
Sweetest guy! Very soft spoken, very gentleman.
First stop: The Golden Pavilion of Kinkaku-ji 金閣寺
Had tea by the park.
Macha and some dessert with red bean.
With gold on it!!
Black sesame Dango. Very very nice!
Next we walked for lunch. The weather was very good. Cold but warm with sunlight. Dunno how to explain. If you have experienced winter you will know.
We just walked and walked. Everywhere is so beautiful in Kyoto. It is said to be the most beautiful city in Japan.
Some duck meat soba.
After that we walked towards Kiyomizu-dera.
Pictures of random places. So beautiful.
I think this is restaurant.
The sky was pink that day. Super romantic.
Some old traditional Japanese shop.
Katou super cute.
Argh this shop is sooo cute.
Eh but quite expensive la. ￥1000 for a fan? I can by a pair of 4 inches Babypure.
Finally i want to thank Katou he has been nothing but a perfect tour guide. So sweet and accommodating. 🙂
Next up: Osaka. Maybe. Depends on mood. Hehe.
you are a true fighter for wearing heels to climb up to kiyomizu wtf
aud: EH U BACK IN MSIA D lolol. oh thats because i didnt know i had to climb wtf.
ohh.. macha is green pea… i thought you were calling..someone.. =S

If you get time, try to visit Takayama. It’s like a little Kyoto.
I stayed in a ryokan there. Great fun.
Yes agree…Kyoto is beautiful 🙂

Cheesie, can he read your English blog /speak English with u?
aiks got another person call kei ah, then i change my name la. lol
I want soba! D= *hungry*

Kyoto is one of my favourite place in Japan…yes..u are right…is sooo beautiful. The streets and those little shops are so unique and vintage.
Do you buy your thick(ish) bajus from Japan?
Your nails.. oh my.. unique!
Beautiful views especially pink sky.. ;D
Blog about how you guys met and how you get to be so good in Japanese, ok cheesie cutie?
Cold weather = ditch the short skirts. We all know you have nice legs. Keep them warm.
Heel for all that walking ? ? ? ? ? Why torture yourself?
BTW, does T ski or snowboard? That would be a new experience for you!
Take a lesson if you try.
The both of you look very happy! Best wishes for a great 20091
hehe…actually no..see this flag now? im in malaysia..:P
that’s office proxy…
hmm…no idea why is it an australian flag now….ahhaha…
ooo….love the pics! and i can imagine how cold u were in those stockings! but. they did look very nice though…wahaha…:P
there was this part “very soft spoken, very gentleman. So untypically Japanese” means Japanese are usually very loud and not so gentlemanly?
Have fun in Japan! more pictures!:)
your camera is awesome! and wah why the geisha look like that, how do they expect to get any customers? >__<
maybe it’s something with jap and their fetishes lol
axiao: i think sometimes streamyx ip gives Aus flag, cause i kena few times also!
Hey there, just wondering what camera you’re using…
Love your pics !!!
David – i know its logic to ditch the short skirts in cold weather right ? but girls..oi leng moi meng. Translates to something like they will do anything to look good regardless of if they die from it! same for heels…haha.
Cheesie – wei, din play dressup like geisha meh? me tot this is something you’d definitely do wor. Got anymore scenary pics? like gardens etc?
ya ..kyoto is a very nice place to visit ..haha ..

To those of you who are criticizing Cheesie/Ringo’s bf’s appearance – since when have you made it your personal mission to judge the appearance of others’ bfs/gfs? Grow up and get a life!

Nice blog post, a good read, i’ll be bookmarking this.
Thank you. Please come back! 🙂
You look like a fashion plate when you travel. BTW, there are tights that will look good and keep your legs warmer. Likely you can find them in Japan, since that land has a real winter.
You look so happy in the photos!
i was happy. 🙂
