Trip 3 (Nov 2011), Day 10: Osaka to Singapore.

Actually, I realized that I didn't actually took much pics on this day since it was a travelling day.

Therefore, I guess I'll just post pics of what I bought on this trip.

Trip 4 (Feb 2012), Day 1: Singapore to Tokyo, Tokyo to Sapporo Shin-Chitose.
We took JAL for this trip. Seats were uncomfortable although their inflight entertainment is much better than Cathay's. Food portion-wise, I found it alright although the breakfast on our way back to Singapore was really yucks.

Had a looong delay on the tarmac at Narita Airport because it seemed that there were a long queue of planes trying to take off. I had time to browse thru 2 magazines + short nap and we were still waiting for takeoff. -_-!


1259) Waiting for boarding at Changi


1260) At Narita Airport's JR office to exchange for my JR pass and also to book our Overnight train Twilight Express's tickets for Day 9


1261) Kit Kats...


1262) Baggage carousel at Shin-Chitose Airport


1263) Our room (were we stayed for first 3 nights) at Chisun Inn Sapporo (8000yen per night during Sapporo Snow Fest week)


1264) View outside our room window


1265) Our supper from convenience stores.


---End of Trip 4, Day 1-----

Coming up next, Day 2 (Sapporo Snow Fest)
