I love Japan!! I think Japan is one of those countries that everyone would love. There are so many interesting things in Japan, if you are interested in culture, go to Japan. If you’re into electronics, go to Japan! If you’re interested in shopping, go to Japan! There’s just so many things to like!!
We have spent a few days in Tokyo and it’s beautiful! It’s such a modern city and have all the high rise buildings but when you turn the corner you can find the most traditional houses. It always amazed me how well the Japanese keep their culture so well.
Following Tokyo we are going up to the north to Nagano to see the monkeys in the hot spring, then to the west coast to Kanazawa then down south to Kyoto then back to Tokyo. It’s a very intense trip with heaps to see however Australia is so far away. Once you’re overseas you have to make the most of it!
My parents visit Australia on every Chinese New Year so they’ve been to Australia 15 times now! My dad is even more familiar with tourist places than I am! So this year we decided to take them to New Zealand for a few days, just to make it a little bit different for them.
We went to South Island for just under a week. We drove from Christchurch to Lake Tekapo, Twizel, Wanaka, Haast, Fox Glacier, Hokitika, Greymouth then back to Christchurch. I think we drove more than a thousand kilometres, but the scenery is so beautiful that every corner is worth the hard work. It was such a great experience. Mum and dad were a bit bored, they constantly fell asleep in the car and missed out on all the beautiful views ha!
During our short but eventful trip we saw million year old glaciers and even a few shooting stars. We saw the ocean and we saw the rainforest, such a diverse place with such beauty.
Honestly you cannot imagine how stunning it is until you see it with your own eyes. We live in a wonderful world, that is full of beauty, excitement and love. It’s so nice to surround yourself with all these things and enjoy the little moment’s with your family.
In front of all these big mountains and beautiful rivers we realised how lucky we are to have each others. The world is so big and we only have limited time on this planet – we just have to enjoy every moment.

Today is my last day to work the shop coz I am going to Hong Kong tomorrow! My brother is getting married so I will be there for him. I am off for two weeks and I can’t wait to show you around my home city!
This two weeks’ been very crazy. I haven’t even finished doing my laundry for my Taiwan trip yet but we’re heading to Singapore tomorrow! Since when we’re such frequent flyers? Don’t worry. We’re not rich and famous yet. Just a little holiday with my mum and dad.
Can’t wait to upload more photos of Taiwan and Singapore when we get back. We’ll be quit busy preparing markets and trade fairs when we come back. The best is yet to come!
