after my 5 hours of sleep~ i woke up and got ready for d 2nd day~~~^^ 1st stop: Malaysian Consulate to get my passport done~ i stil need 2 get d postal money order and buy stamps since i dun plan 2 go 2 LA again 2 pick it up~ so thats that~~~ gosh~ i jz realized tat i kinda miss talkin proper bm~ like full sentence bm~ i shud do tat more often~ and i def need 2 find usps around~ i did ask d officer bt sumhow i couldnt find it jz nw T.T

today2~~~ hihihi i was walkin towards chinatown which jz dun seem to appear tat i stoppd by at a train station 2 chck out d map~ i chckd out n i found koreatown instead :DDD so i was kinda thinkin~ shud i go 2 chinatown or koreatown? XD aftr some tinkin~~~ *while walkin searchin 4 union station* i made up my mind 2 go 2 koreatown 1st! so i happily enterd union station and got~ umm~ lost. more like i dunno which train 2 take and all~ so i askd metrolink officers~ i asked 2 people and both gave me pretty umm less than helpful answers~ d 1st: i tink u need 2 take d gold line *which is actly wrong~ its purple line~ d fact tat i did c d map b4 askin did help~ or i mite hv gotten lost* 2nd: i dunno~ there is a phone there. y dun u call d customer service? T.T owh well~ i fig tat if i could jz find a more detaild n helpful map id get thre on my own~ thank god there were maps rite at d corner so i pickd it up n got on my way 2 ktown ^^

got on d train and lookd 4ward 2 go 2 ktown ^^ arrived and started walkin aimlessly~ serious, i din do any planning at all~ letz jz say i dun evn noe im goin 2 ktown 2day~ T.T so yeah~ i started walking~ saw a few (beauty salon) and then i stopped at a bakery (manna bakery)i was tinkin if i shud say sumtin in korean bt i ended up jz smiling~ so i was walking around d bakery and found sesame biscuit and almost biscuit which cost usd1 each~ pretty cheap i tink~ ^^ so i bought it and said (tq) n then the (owner) lookd so shockd tat she askd (are you a korean)which made me xplain (no, im not. but i learn korean language in school) and then she started tellin me tat her son cant speak korean well but drinks well~ hehehehe bcoz korean is (hard, isnt it) i just agreed throughout~ but yeah~ korean is hard~ but interestin! n then i walkd around a bit and found tis~ a since 1966 korean restaurant~ it was too temptin not to drop by~~~ (i got kongguksu: it was nice but i tink because it's cold and the weather is cold too it wasnt exactly my fav meal~ well, my bad~ i shudnt hv ordered a cold meal T.T

and then i took d train and left for chinatown~ well~ i din do much coz i jz walk around a bit and it was raining~ so i was wet a bit~ stayin in seattle made me well~ more accustomed to rain :D nvrtheless i was stil wet~ wat i learn about chinatown is there r lots of clothings~ cheongsam is usd15~ hahaha it was nice u noe~~~ :D and thn i went bck to lil tokyo~ d 2nd time and yet i am stil excited to go there~~~

so wat i did was walk around and started enterin random shops~ hihihi which is fun sumwat~ i started 2 search 4 a few stuff incld yukata~ hihihi i was tinkin of buyin one 4 my sis~ well~ it depends~ if she wants one~ tat is~ its not tat expensive anyway ^^ so yeah~ i mite get one set~ maybe~~~~~

and then~ it was gettin late~ believe it or x~ it took me like an hour walkin at random places~ and i bumped into an obaasan which talked wif me for a moment while crossing the road~ we talked about the weather! it was sumhow fun and light~ ^^ yeah~ arigatou obaasan~ u made my day ^^ it is almost dinner time and i since im x particularly hungry~ i jz bought dango and takoyaki~ it was pretty good!! hihihi i guessd i enjoyed it~ and since i bought a day pass so i took d train to go bck~ n since its raining so i guess its gud too~~ its gettin cold as well~ so~~ im quite fortunate tat i bought a day pass~ ^^

so yeah~ by d time i got bck home~ my jeans was wet till knee length *since i kept on steppin into puddles* and my jacket was half wet and my head scarf was def wet T.T bt well~ it went well~~ lookin 4ward 4 2mr!

*pics comin on l8r cz there r probs wif d lappy sumhow* T.T


so today is my 1st trip 2 LA on my own~ *b4 my friends comin tis 18th* at d airport~ sum1 askd me hw did i gt cnctd 2 d net~ n i was like uh ok~ n i was tryin to open d browser and all til i realized OWH he did x cnct 2 d wifi~ i felt a bit like an idiot 4 x tinkin of tat at first~ bt well~ all was gud aftr tat ^^ it's alaska airlines~ well~ d sound of d plane was a bit scary~ bt here i am nw ^^ safe n sound ^^

the frozen sea

i was just plain bored T.T

the cloud~ so white and pure~ and i like tis shade of blue~ ^^

so i arrived~ got a taxi 2 hotel whch costed me usd60 T.T *damn!* bt well~ expected i guess~ hilton checkers is nice~ service wise and all~ so id recommend it~ regardless of my lack of attention to these kinda stuff and i dun reli care about customer service unless if it is reli2 bad id say tis is reli good~ ^^ my tolerance is pretty high bt well i tink tis is one of d best ive been to so far~ or more like cz usually its my dad who gets all d ushering and i will b hepily mindin my own stuff at d side without payin any atntn~ so yeah mayb tatz d case too ^^

got 2 d hotel at around 3~ and well around 330 went out~ and id say, gurls dun go around walkin at downtown LA esp at d alleys IF
1. ur alone
2. without a map
3. have bad sense of direction
and well, i qualify for all those 3 T.T how 2 make urself feel safer
1. act like u noe where ur goin. dun stop and look around
2. avoid lookin like a tourist. dun take pic all d time~ well yeah.. cz if u look like ur more accustomed like peepz dun exactly stare at u n all~
3. maintain a straight face n dun look around all d time~ bt stil b aware of ur surroundings
4. take note of landmarks~ at least if u get lost and cant fig out d new route 2 ur hotel, u cn jz backtrack~
so yeah~ i survived~ my journey: finance district --> jewellery district --> fashion district --> warehouse *or izit waresale district? T.T* --> toy district --> lil tokyo ^^ i did plan 2 go there bt i hd no idea hw 2 get there~ it lookd a bit far bt i did manage 2 walk there *aftr gettin a bit lost here n there* x exactly lost bt a bit confused where am i~ i was pretty much reading signboards meant 4 cars :P

so tat is
my lil journey walkin around~ ^^

by d time i arrived at lil tokyo it was gettin darker so i was walkin around searchin 4 a place 2 eat~ and tis is wat i found which made me smile and giggle XD

id dare say d kanji is def diff though XD

well~ i didnt eat there though i really had d urge to XD it was closed by d time i passed by it~ one thing which i realized~ most rest here r open later in d evening rather than hw it is in seattle~ so yeah~ it was a bit weird for me~ ^^ nvrtheless i settled 4 one of d places in the tokyo plaza~ its sushi teri i tink~

tis is d place frm outside

d wall is quite cute~ i actly found terima kasih :D

it looked pretty interesting bt 2 much i tinK~

miss, are you alone? would u like 2 sit by d bar? T.T

d atmosphere was quite ok~ it wasnt exactly home-y cozy kinda thing bt well~ ok~ n i was staring at d chief who was makin d sushi and after eatin i was so full i tink it showd on my face tat he askd me "r u ok? is everything fine?" LOL and well i ordered top much i tink~ so i was pretty much stuffin myself wif food after 1 day of not eating~


the ice tea wasnt sweet which was quite 2 my liking~ ^^

miso soup :)

the combo bento~ ^^

all in all it was ok~ bt i guess d unagi was a bit too burned cz it was slightly too bitter at certain parts and d teriyaki sauce was a bit too salty i tink~ sushi wise, i guess usually there r some wasabi spread on d sushi itself bt there wasnt any *i chckd* XD so yeah~ gotta top it a bit more than usual ^^

and well~ after tat i bought some snacks 4 breakfast, walking snacks *jz in case i get hungry while walkin* and when i showed my sis wat i bought she was like~ hmm r u reli in la T.T XD

later then got bck home~ dark~ T.T bt i found my way bck~ i used a diff route wif hopes of walkin at main streets instead of alley as wat i did initially~ got a bit confused here n there bt yeah~ i did arrive safely around 7 ish~ so i guess it took me almost an hour walkin bck home *wif my super slow pace i guess it makes sense*

got bck --> wanted to use the internet so i devised a plan tat i can use d internet till tomorrow after i get bck which is go to bed 4 a bit --> buy internet --> can use til almost 11pm tomorrow~ AND loading as much anime as i can so tat i can watch them tomorrow nite~ i shud try playin dota again too~~ ^^

destination tomorrow: chinatown and little tokyo *again*
