"Haven't we had enough of trains?"
. Our annual school trip for the international students this year took us to a few places in Tochigi and Saitama prefecture in the north east of Tokyo. Unlike previous entries on my trips where I will usually talk so much about the history and detail on the location itself, I will take a different approach this time. After all, I guess most people will just skim through the lines only more often than not. So here it goes.
There was no cushion on the seat that time and I bet our butt will suffer a lot especially during long train rides ;) The timetable for shinkansen. It really looked different from what we see today. A replica showing how Tokyo Station used to look like many years back. The original building was burnt down during a fire which broke out some time ago. This is one of the section of the museum that received the most attention from the visitor called Operation Simulator. We can experience a precise simulation of actual railway operation, from the normal trains until the likes of shikansen. Unfortunately, the queue was too long and we didn't have ample time to try on this simulator. You know what I was saying in my heart when I know I couldn't try that simulator *points to the guy's T-shirt (on the right)*.

More so when you are studying for an exam =.=
Anyway, there was a school trip sandwiched in between my exams and it was over the last weekend. I will not be blogging on that yet as for now though. It was only so so, compared to last year's trip to Sado Island. This time, we ended up spending most of the time in the bus, because the locations are separated quite far apart, and hence we didn't get to walk at the places as much and as long as we would have hoped for. Anyways, it was a free trip sponsored by the school and I shall not complain much either.
It is heading towards the end of June and that means summer is coming. Am I excited about it? Yes and no. Yes, because I am going back this August and no, because I will have to endure the heat first before that. Of all four seasons here in Japan, I guess I loathe summer the most. I know the condition in Malaysia at the moment is not much different, but when it is summer here, you will sweat like hell and the high humidity makes your body feel sticky like elephant glue. No matter how many times you bathe, it will still be the same thing. I will sweat so much that I feel like staying in the shower room for the whole day =.=
Talking about the heat, I had a sudden headache last night. I guess it must be due to the hot weather nowadays. And just like girls having their monthly PMS, obviously my mood changed. Who said guys cannot have PMS? It was quite bad that I quickly went to wet my hair and I found out later that I was not the only one having headache. The rest were complaining about the same thing as well.
Is this due to the global warming problem that is getting more alarming these day? I guess it does. That is why starting from a couple of days ago, there is this annual event called Candle Night launched in Japan. The objective is to reduce the usage of electricity within this two-week period and it is actually very simple to contribute to this campaign. Just turn off the lights for two hours from eight to ten every night and imagine the quantity of energy saved within this period. It started last Saturday and will continue up until July 7th.
As if I haven't had enough on the killing heat nowadays, Pinksterz have the heart to make me even more stressed by giving me a link of a game called Po's Awesome Appetite. Unless you are planning to increase your blood pressure, I advise you not to try this game because it is damn addictive, and also it will make you feel tension. Seriously! Stewpid black bear. I tell you that panda is damn bengong and mangkuk tandas can! (sorry, I don't have a translation for both terms).
That someone always tease me being a noob when it comes to games. So, try beating this score, although I guess most people will surpass my best score easily wtf.
Football fans out there who are following the EURO '08 tournament, do you notice that all the group winners have crashed out? Is this a coincidence or what? Holland has been beaten soundly by the Russians last night and I don't think I will be watching the remaining of the tournament anymore. More so when there is a possibility of a repeat of what happened four years ago.
A Turkey-Russia final, anyone?
