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. 😀
Everything is so white!
i likes white!

Hi, love to read your blog 😆
Love Japan too 😈
Btw i’m a malaysian but working at Spore currently 😀
Lol, reading ur blog is the best entertainment after all 🙂 Luckily the police’s eye sharp, can spot ur shiny camera case 😀
It could be someone else found it and turned it in to the authority, Japanese are good at returning lost stuff 🙂
Haha is camera, the case is not shiny, only furry 😛
This has nothing to do with the bog.
I just want to know your recommendations for a digital camera.
I am planning to go overseas next year and I want to get a camera to document my trip there.
What camera do you use and would you recommend it or another model?
If you are taking recommendations here IMHO is some useful infomation.
I would suggest any good DSLR if you truly want great photos.
Some good models are made by Canon and Nikon.
Canon’s EOS 550D – or Rebel T2i as it’s known in North America – is the company’s latest upper entry-level DSLR. http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Canon_EOS_550D_Rebel_T2i/
Olympus, Panasonic and Samsung make a new series of smaller dSLR that are geared towards to newer user and combine a smaller size, interchangeable lenses.
The Olympus E-P2 is a compact camera with a DSLR-sized sensor and removeable lens mount. http://www.cameralabs.com/reviews/Olympus_E-P2/
The NX10 ($699) marks Samsung’s bold entry into the increasingly competitive interchangeable lens camera market. http://www.dcresource.com/reviews/samsung/nx10-review.
Sony offers the NEX3 and NEX5 compacts.
Many women have smaller hands and find the traditional larger dSLR difficult to handle.
I will be purchasing a Canon EOS 7D shortly. I have run up against the limitations of point and shoot compact cameras to often.
I hope this helps you.
im using an oly EPL1 right now 🙂
oh boy…it is so cold there…can see the snow ….
its just whiteness everywhereeeeeeeee
Wee….the snow is so pretty…loved it! 😀
😀 😀 😀
Don’t tweet threats you can’t carry out, you ugly bitch.
You’re no god and can never be. Just another vain whore.
you should start believing in God and watch your back.
kim who’s that ? want mess ?
i believe in you, god.
how about just grow up? this is tiring..
It takes a real big man to post anonymous insults online using a proxy 🙂
yeap, like a massive fat fuck with some wannabe taitai poor ah lian GF
balls so big had to hide behind proxy and post anonymous both in lowyat and here, pity, pity.
who are you to throw around insults and create drama like this? u really don’t know what you’re getting yourself into.
i dunno what’s happening, but you better watch your back. the whole nuffnang co. can gang up on you anytime they want.
and stop spreading insults and get a life, you ball-less fat fuck.
stop it la ming.
enough is enough okay.
they already know it’s you.
Hello Eric Yong! Long time no see and you’re so bored to do this kind of childish thing over here? Too bored caused no friend to hang around? I pity YOUR life!
I dropped my camera in the airport limousine on my way to our hotel in Tokyo. Was damn excited wanting to take a picture of my lunchbox-sized hotel bathroom only to find It nowhere. Maybe I was too emo so I decided to call the airport service without knowing what to say in Japanese but they are really good!!! Got my camera the next day!
Only to forget to charge it to hakone 🙁
and when I did charge it, only to have it break down at Tokyo Disneyland 🙁 🙁
lol FYL why so unfortunately. Next time get a lot of spare!!!
Great set of photos. You look lovely and your jacket is very cute.
Good fortune that your camera was recovered. For future winter photography you might consider putting you camera on a neck strap, harder to lose that way and your camera is quickly available for shots.
The winter scenes are making me long for cooler weather now that the hot humid days of summer are here. Of coures this far north summer will give way to fall soon enough!
i had a strap i just didn’t use it lol
Alamak I love your camera case aaaah!
Actually I have an E-PL1 too but it is caseless TT o TT Why is it so hard to find case for this type of camera one~
Anyways lol I WISH I COULD BLING CAMERAS LIKE THAT.
Last time I blinged my laptop attract dirt and dust so yeah. 😐
bad experience, so oh well.
got ah. oly got sell ma original case. 🙂
lucky !!! save by the bling ! ^^ n the uniform guy
japanese is also one of the honest people i kno
they are 🙂
Hey did you go to Otaru when you’re in Sapporo? Beautiful place!
