Filled with the cool breezes as if being in Genting Highlands, I’m really enjoying the peaceful atmosphere with the seaside not too far away. It’s just like living in your anime where you wake up, have breakfast, leave the house and start making your way to school.
We took a short trip passing the sea and headed towards a temple where it’s surrounded with dolls. Then there was 1 shrine with 2 shapes resembling a vagina and penis. This is where single people or couples come to pray for either kids or a lifelong partner.
After that, we headed to the train station where there’s an infamous feline who’s known as its station master.
Meet Ni-Tama, a four legged feline who’s employed with a salary. What exactly is his responsibility, I’m not sure. But he’s one big cute fellow you’d want to really hug! Lol.
Once we were done, our next destination was another place near the ocean. It was a great beach which looked like it would be packed with people during summer. That’s another season which I’m thinking of experiencing, though second thoughts jump into mind right away about the heat later. Our aunt said it can reach up to 40 degrees Celsius. O.O
Nearby the beach was a park with a kids playground. When I saw this, I truly thought to myself about how different playthings were available to kids here. They even had a mini flying fox for those under 12 years of age!
As we made our way to taste a popular ramen in Wakayama, we took a short detour elsewhere because the ramen shop only opens from 5.00pm to 1.00am. Unknowingly, our aunt took us to walk through an apparent haunted tunnel. One which I’ve not looked up and probably wouldn’t later. Better not knowing about it, right. Lol.
Once I took a few sips of the soup, it had a familiar after taste which I couldn’t put my finger on until my bro-in-law mentioned it was like bak-kut -teh. And the light bulb came on! It was like bak-kut-teh.
Compared to the other ramen, this was much lighter in taste except when it hits you after you’ve swallowed the food. Between them, I think I prefer the latter.
Well, it’s been a tiring day, not having gotten used to the futon style pillow yet. But the experience so far has been great and I pray the incoming typhoon won’t wreck the remainder of our trip. Begone Vongfong!
