It was almost 4 years since I last met them. Yes, I promised to visit my friends Kak Ma and Abg Am and their little princess Mellisa-chan in Hamamatsu since I was doing my MSc in Malaysia even though at that time, I didn't know when it would be. But, my principle is, always keep on dreaming for the things you won't know it may come true and believe in Allah's plans. And alhamdulillah, it did come true.
After my Nihongo class in Ikoma, I got on the subway Chuo line headed to Honmachi. Got off there and changed to Midosuji line heading to Umeda station. The station they call it Osaka City Station is super big you would ended up lost in the station. But thanks to the eki (station) staffs who kindly guided me well for me to reach the bus terminal. The bus was scheduled at 10:50 pm, and as the time came, it departed on time (the thing you would really admire and held you in awe when you are in Nihon, time management!).
Reached Hamamatsu the next morning. My friends picked me up at the eki. Was lucky to meet other Malaysians community there as they had a BBQ picnic near Tenryu that day. Had sate, nasi lemak, nasi ayam and many other delicious food.. too bad i don't have the pics for the yummylicious food there!
|lovely kak ma~|

On the next day, we went to Gotemba, which has the biggest premium outlet in Japan that has 210 stores. The crowd there was tremendous, busy doing their shopping as Golden Week sale offered the best prices until May 6th.. got some stuffs for myself and headed back to Hamamatsu after spending almost 4 hours there..
|can u see Mount Fuji there? lovely isn't it?|
This visit is surely a fruitful one as I get to meet and make new friends. Advices from dai-sempai (Kak Ma and Abg Am) are very much appreciated and always kept in mind. Many thanks to the kindest hospitality kak ma, abg am, I had a great time there. See u soon in the near future!
