Back to being a student once again.

My officially a student once again taking my degree in Doshisha University! Took a giant step by telling my parents that I want to study and get a degree. I didn't want to study in Singapore too as I have been there in my entire life so I decided to try my luck at Doshisha and here I am now! 
I school life in Japan has begun!~ *Anime/drama background scene* 

Orientation was fun as I get to meet so many people from all around Japan and the world! But.. everyone is soo young. Such a nice feeling being young. I'm like one of the oldest around. 
We had lots of laugh and fun during the welcome party and had to play weird games during orientation. 

A few days later after the orientation we had our convocation ceremony where we will get our student ID! The professors told us to wear formal but many of us didn't bring from home! Ah this was the most formal outfit I could get with my  pastel blue blazer. 

ILA Spring intake 2015! "The Class" with the professors.
As you can see, you can tell who is from Japan and who is not XD 

School was packed with circle aka Clubs and everyone was recruiting! This was the first time I experience something like this as Singapore is really dull or boring. The students here will go all out to recruit and talk to people with colorful boards and signs. Not to mention the circles gathering which they will go to a nearby place and chat. 

My first week in school was super hectic as there were still many paperwork to be done nevertheless I'm so glad that I'm here!

Card Captor Sakura 20th Anniversary at Osaka

The card Captor Sakura 20th Anniversary was held at Osaka Daimaru from 3/21 - 3/29 this year. Liping was like asking me if I want to go so I agreed and went to osaka! I didn't buy the pre ticket first so I got a normal entry ticket when I was there. 

No photography and video taking was allowed in the event hall so I'm sorry I couldn't take any pictures of the event. These were the only photos I manage to took. 

The event is basically just showering all the art work of CCS and also the new one that was just release. There was also the anime section and they were showing how they story board it and creating the character. There was also showing merchandise from the past and which was the really popular one! It was like a blast back to the past! 

This is the poster for a preorder for the actual size Sakura wand! IS THE ACTUAL SIZE! 1/1! Couldn't believe it! 

My loot for the day was A4 folder, random badges , nail art stickers and a note pad! 
So many items were already sold out like the hoodies, plates and tea cups! Really wanted the plate thou. There were posters, keychains, handphone covers and many more stuff however I couldn't spend that much.

Good Bye dorm life.

Is been around 2 months since I arrived in Kyoto and I'm still trying to get used with my new lifestyle. I finally move out of my dorm and settled in to my own place which I can call home. The dorm was nice however the walls are really thin so I practically can hear whats happening in my room above me. It was pretty hard to sleep since she was awake at wee hours. So as much as I didn't like sleeping there, I will still miss that place. I met many wonderful people and it was really fun talking to them. It was the first place I stayed when I arrived in Kyoto after all. 

Took some photos before I left because didn't had time to take when I arrived. 

The street that lead to the dorm. It was a quiet and cozy. 

I can still remember the day that I tried to find this place and google map didn't help much either. It was really hard to find! 

Bicycle parking. 

Cozy little room. 

This is how you heat up the water for showers. 

 The toilet which has a really bad design... with towel hangers everywhere but you can't use it. 

There was a vending machine next to the laundry room. And is also well known for being the smoking corner. 

3 washing machine! No cost! JUST USE ONLY! 

The kitchen and dining room. 

I was a messy little girl when I was staying in that room. 
Didn't had any shelves or boxes to put things. My laptop practically took up the whole table space!

And kapibara was swamping my beds XD I need more! 

The one thing that I really couldn't live with is that my toilet takes up to 12 hours to drain out the water. It was really madness! If I wanted to use the toilet I needed to wear my platform shoes just to use it. I needed to calculate when I should bath because the next morning I may be able to use it ._. After a while then the plumber came and they found a pen or a stick that was clogging up the whole drain. A FREAKING PEN? ARE YOU SERIOUS! Well at least now my new home got a good drainage system and I can shower in peace. Not to mention a separate toilet!
