[TBC] 01: Narita – Nippori via Keisei Express

have visited the Keisei Express site

for a couple of times

*

the reason why

we chose to stay at Nippori

in the first place

is simple because there are

different trains to travel

to and fro the airport

*

this is of great importance

as our out-bound flight is at 10:30 AM

and we would like to do some shopping

*

oh my

to read these maps and let me

put these down in table form

Narita - Nippori

*

which can be broken down as 3 maps

Narita - Nippori via Keisei Main LineNarita - Nippori via Sky AccessNarita - Nippori via Skyliner

*

which can be summarized as

and

the frequency map

the timing has to be double confirmed

especially for Keisei Main Line

some of those which departs from Nippori

doesn’t actually head to the airport

those in red (LEX NA) are..

Narita - Nippori Keisei Main Line Time Table

*

this will definitely be helpful for us

and hopefully for others too

*

there’s a planner on the home page

to clear things out

Keisei Transfer Planner and Fare Calculation

*

to make things easier

it will display

the timing and fare

of different options available

Narita - Nippori all lines

父親節 X 談談錢:就這麼膚淺

不想談父親節

不想談送了什麼禮物

*

我給他打了五千塊

匯款備註那裡

隨手寫了Father’s Day

哦 還有一行

就順便寫了 Fridge

*

其實打錢和父親節

沒半毛關係

是買冰箱用的

*

後來才發現

五千塊真的很小

*

冰箱好像是三千幾

不久前修冷氣、修車

還有我之前欠他五百

*

算起來 我爹真的

也沒啥可撈了

*

錢真的很小

我盡力吧

*

雖然說

給錢很膚淺

額 但這個絕對不能用來

當作不給錢的藉口

*

爸媽拿你的錢

首先 他得肯定

你有這能力 才掏得出錢

否則 不可能要你的錢

所以 給錢是一份心安

*

其次

別把盡孝放得太大

我覺得這就是本份

於情於理本該如此

*

其三

別攀比 尤其是

沒有最壞 只有更壞

千萬別說:

我沒像XX跟爸媽要錢

已經很不錯啦

*

因為你也知道

相反地

爸媽給你的只有最好

*

其四

如果你爸媽不要你的錢

或者拿了錢也不用

那換個方式吧

*

把家裡的賬單

全部或部分承包起來

就說 網上繳費

即安全又方便

*

網購的時候

除了給自己買鞋買衣

還可以給爸媽買

還可以買些吃的用的

就說網上打折

*

其五

別說你爸媽還有能力

不需要這錢

樹欲靜而風不止

硬道理就是這樣

*

救命

已經快編不下去了。。

Found but Can’t Book X Solved in 10 Mins: Pocket Wi-Fi, Done

have to get a

portable Wi-Fi router

or data SIM card for

our upcoming trip

*

since our host is not providing one

and our travel mates

(the businessmen)

kind of need Internet

*

then again..

i actually decided to

opt for the one from

Facebook sponsored ad

(with 7 likes from mutual friends)

although i hardly came across it previously

*

lowest rate (15 MYR)

with unlimited data

Travel Recommend

*

then found that

i can’t create a booking

probably because 5 working days

before departure is required

and 22nd can’t even be selected

Travel Recommends

*

so i dropped them a Whatsapp text

and all i need to do is to

drop my application

via Whatsapp instead

*

instant booking confirmation

proceed to payment

instant payment confirmation

*

everything is done

within 10+ minutes

*

and..

they are nice enough

to take one day off

and fill up the order as

23rd 00:00 AM

since we are flying on

11:30 PM on 22nd

*

i had thought of doing that too

when i failed to book online

but was afraid that

that wouldn’t do

*

thumbs up for the

(1) great customer service

(2) flexibility

(3) efficiency

*

not forgetting

the best rate available!

Free Shipping X 1, 2, 3…: More UTs

Last Friday

got this newsletter

free shipping for all orders

(usually it’s 150 MYR)

*

Thanks dad!

IMG_6413

*

then i decided to order a Moomin UT

featuring Little My!!

at 50% off

and it’s not available in-store

at the Uniqlo near me

*

got it yesterday

which was a Thursday

IMG_6549

*

entered the website

oh no

the other few Peanuts UTs

from previous year were

also on sale at 50% off

IMG_6555

*

oh my my

i would like to have those

will they deliver on time

before we travel?

*

that’s the question

which have been bugging me

for the past one week

before i check out items

*

i ordered anyway

since i ordered the first

during last Friday evening

and got it on Thursday afternoon

*

i am willing to take the risk

so i ended up ordering another

three Peanuts UT all in white

UT Peanuts

*

have been looking for

plain white tees

but quite a few that

i saw were either too thin

too tight or too girlish

*

have faith in UT

and the printed graphic is small

wait..

except…

*

erm.. first beagle on the moon

an important milestone in human’s history

UNIQLO X PEANUTS MEN T SHIRT - FIRST BEAGLE ON THE MOON 01UNIQLO X PEANUTS MEN T SHIRT - FIRST BEAGLE ON THE MOON 02

Meet Debby X My Ex Homie: And We’re Heading to Krabi

yesterday

no the day before

*

8 something in the morning

waking up to find

a text from a friend

i have not met for ages

*

she texted me 7 something

in the morning

that’s rare wow

asking how am i doing

*

and within 10 sentences

we actually decided that

we should really meet up

*

and ended up planning a trip

together for real!!

*

and yeah

not for the sake of saying!

*

like sometimes

when you tell another person like

we should plan a trip together

*

you actually don’t mean it

or even if you do

the other person who

immediately answered yeah

actually doesn’t mind it too

*

and the trip shall

never ever happen

in years to come

*

by 8:20 AM

i was looking on AirAsia

since she suggested Phuket

AirAsia booking

*

i actually didn’t mean

to fix the destination as Phuket

but was just randomly looking

with a random date

*

and i must say that

the flight ticket

is kinda tempting

*

i went back to work

waiting for her to

finalize the dates

which coincides with

her firm holidays

*

by 10:30 AM

we had the dates locked down

AirAsia bookingAirAsia booking

*

by 10:45 AM

we decided to go to Krabi instead

(1) less commercialized

(2) i.e. cheaper

(3) i have not been there

AirAsia bookingAirAsia booking

*

by 11 AM

realizing that she needs to apply leave

missed out that line

thank goodness i scrolled back

looking for her info for booking

so we decided to fly on a Saturday

seriously cheap

for a public holiday cum weekend

AirAsia bookingAirAsia booking

*

by 11:15 AM

booked

and we are good to go

*

gosh

i can’t believe it

planning a trip and

booking flight tickets

within 3 hours

just like that

*

it’s just like committing

a shopping crime

and i actually feel guilty

*

but what differs from

shopping is

i may have regretted

buying something i don’t need

or of disappointment to me

*

but i have never and will never

regret over a trip taken

no matter what takes place

*

i feel like destroying this photo

for sure!!

what the hell is wrong

with that red check shirt with

white cargo pants

and orange bag!!!

no that wasn't me!! i was the photographer

*

we were neighbours

not even course mates

but somehow we found

a lot of things in common

and ended up spending time

in each other’s room chatting

*

being an anti-socialist

that’s rare for sure!!

*

she knows how i live

and i knows how she does

so i don’t foresee any issue

travelling with her

despite the short planning

and despite not meeting

for at least 7 years

*

at least now

i have two pairs of

upcoming flight tickets

something to look forward to

and less insecurity

*

遠親 X 不如近鄰:助你化險為。。咦?

常言道:

遠親不如近鄰

*

這句話我必需舉手贊同的

至少遠親一年就見一次

討人厭也不過如此

但如果您很不幸

有非常“靠背”的鄰居

這種討人厭是防不勝防的

*

例如:

今天早上

我在外面曬衣服

*

突然我家對面的女士

就走了過來

問我:你們去日本哪裡?

*

F 走漏風聲了

不必問 一定是我媽

*

聽說我們要去東京

她就很激動地說

他們家有一些冊子

他們家兒子去旅遊展

拿了很多 要丟掉了

可以給我們

*

我說不用

有app了

*

然後她就很堅持

反正要丟掉的東西是吧

*

重點來了

重點來了

重點來了

*

然後她就說:

東京迪士尼很小

她去了兩次

每次都是帶人去

她可以教我怎麼去

*

還有什麼:

亞洲的都很小

LA 的比較大

*

日本不好玩啦

又不會說英語

*

一直不讓她的兒子

計劃去日本

可他們又不聽

*

沒有什麼給我們

所以就把這些給我們啦

(萌萌達。。。。)

*

沒什麼給我們

這是真的!!

有一次應該是西安回來

她說那裡的什麼

辣椒零食好吃

*

然後她回家找了相當久

以紙巾端了大概十顆小辣椒

當作手信給我們就是了

*

。。。。。

您曾經對我說

童話裡都是騙人的

道理我都懂

*

但是一大早

就有人來粉碎

你們一大家子

迪士尼的美夢

你說呢

*

首先

迪士尼老娘去過了三次

至於從哪個門走

當然是從正門呀 不然呢

*

至於日本

我們家裡也去了不下三次

我覺得他們英文

沒什麼問題呀

*

迪士尼 小

好呀 整合我們心意

太大小孩走得多累呀

*


話說回來

這個是一個

很好的反面教材

*

下一次聽到朋友說

接下來要去哪去哪

你可以表示

(1)好呀 那裡不錯

(2)給幾個比較有用的貼士

(3)祝他旅途愉快

*

而不是 拿一些

你們家要丟掉的地圖

來炫耀你有去過多少次

那裡其實不好玩

*

好了 吐糟完畢

*

地圖還居然還是

11/12年版的

這。。。還能用嗎?

Flamingo X Coca-Cola: Denim Jogger @ Terranova

We have been talking about joggers

since quite some time ago

when i met up with my

favorite nephew

before he left

*

was going around

helping him to find one

*

he is now about

to come back

for his summer break

*

then months after

i spotted female’s version

at Terranova

quite some time ago

*

from past experience

knowing that

their price can actually go

low.. low.. low.. low…

*

it’s about time i guess

as i saw their further mark-down

post on my FB feed today

*

so this is actually my first try

although jogger pants

come with cuffs

i am so used to rolled up

that i must!!!

well.. my legs are not long enough

that’s for sure

Terranova Chambray jogger pants

*

both of us bought the same pair

the last time we took such photo

at Terranova was Nov 11 last year

Terranova Chambray jogger pants

*

haha

this woman has to come over

because i can’t possibly go over

oops

*

she was telling me that

i should get this

since this coincides with my

favourite song by Li Ronghao 李榮浩

The Big Sun《大太陽》

knotted cropped top @ Terranova

*

but i am kinda fed up with

knotted cropped top

because i don’t have the abs to

wear them on its own

and it’s kinda troublesome

to wear two pieces

*

and it defeats the point of

designing it as a knotted top

*

so i ended up

buying this

because my chambray jogger

goes well with plain white

Tropical Paradise Flamingo white shirt @ Terranova

*

and this

which kinda describes

who i am and what i do

Coca-cola shirt @ Terranova

*

and..

later at VANS

Vans X Peanuts Part 2: Ended Up Buying..

Vans x Peanuts: Shades

*

drinking Coke

actually is kinda addicted

and both of us got that shirts

and same pairs of jogger pants

cheers!! root beer for a change

A&W root beer

*

Vans X Peanuts Part 2: Ended Up Buying..

from the previous post

Vans X Peanuts: By Schulz (of course :p)

*

i am actually not really interested

in the sneakers as

i am used to buying Vans in

plain black, blue etc..

pretty much the basic colours

*

but the window display

was pretty impressive

and it actually surprised me

being in a small city where

usually crossover collections

are not released / delayed

Vans X Peanuts: By Schulz

*

and these

Vans X Peanuts: By Schulz

*

the other side of the display

Vans X Peanuts: By Schulz

*

the kids’ collection

IMG_6271

*

IMG_6273

*

i bookmarked this from Vans China

IMG_6282

*

but since it wasn’t posted

on Vans Malaysia

so i thought it’s not available

*

hey what a surprise

Vans X Peanuts: By Schulz

*

and i actually ended up

buying the shades

which looks like this

Vans X Peanuts: By Schulz

*

my bestie was considering

between these and the

Charlie Brown’s Authentic

limited sizes are available in-store

no worries.. there’s always online store

Vans X Peanuts: By Schulz

*

let’s see

what she ends up buying

i am quite interested in the box

*

Vans X Peanuts: By Schulz (of course :p)
