Woohoo!! Continuing my travelog of my Hong Kong - Otaru trip!!
This post is on our first day in Otaru!
For the first post (on Hongkong) click HERE.
For the second post (on our flight and first night in Otaru) click HERE.
For those of you who were guessing what the blurry objects in this photo was:
Otaru is just so beautiful and serene!
While I was still snoozing Cheesie already woke up and finished doing her morning stuff + applied makeup + camwhored. -_-
She is seriously the most zealous hardworking vain blogger ever.
Btw we both bought this pretty dress in Hongkong, from the aforementioned "C.S" shop. (Refer to Hongkong post)
And she also somehow had time to snap a picture of...
If you are wondering why my camera pouch (stalker!) is in her luggage it is because it is because used as our communal money pouch to pay for things like food/taxis!
:( Not so much a fan of the raw seafood since I don't typically like raw stuff but look at those scallops and salmon!
Grand Park Otaru rented a cab to chauffeur us around the whole day!!! o_o
Zero photoshop on the picture!
Check out this gorgeous picture I took for Cheesie with her dandelion seeds all dreamily aflutter. And see what she took for me?
Nothing. Byatch can't snap a shot!! LOL Never mind I made my photo have the vintageish colour and gave her none.
And as we were walking around I saw this:
I was so excited and kept asking Cheesie to ask the driver whether we can go in but as it turns out it only opens in summer!!! T_T
I was sooooooooooo sad ok??!
I mean seriously, this could have been me!!
Mount Tengu translates to "天狗山" and I thought it's some imperial dog but as it turns out it is named after a red long nosed goblin.
You are supposed to rub his nose and make wishes!!
Plastered all over the limited wall space are well wishes and praises from customers all over the globe. Here's one from Singaporeans.
I burst out laughing like mad when I saw this, not because I am read Korean but because the person drew a caricature of the chef/owner and it is UNCANNY.
I love this guy he is soooooo funny and affable! He is super filled with pride at his own food and whenever curious people meander into the restaurant he keeps telling them his food is the best in the world and it is not self praise but said by all the customers, as evidenced by the cards on the walls.
Cheesie said he said to everyone that his food "吃了会佷感动". LOL
When I asked him for a picture he made his cartoon face at me.
BTW! For the first time in my life I decided to be brave and give raw food another chance so I tried sea urchin!!
OMG I actually liked it!! Maybe it's coz it's so fresh but it didn't have the raw taste at all, just a creamy favour. And thus I also tried scallops raw - and also liked it! Scrimp too but that one I found meh. Proud of myself!
Our driver brought us to another hilltop to get another view... Can't believe how clear the waters are. No photoshop on the colours!
Ending with this enigmatic picture of Cheesie looking sharkly while in a shark's mouth. Will post pictures of our Aquarium visit soon!
