Porcupine's Place

A place for me to pen down my thoughts I guess...

Japan Day 2

Had a nice sleep the day before as the weather was just perfect!
A little bit dry though...

Woke up to this:

Sandwich and onigiri bought the day before in 7 Eleven.
Green tea was provided by the guest house at no charge at all.

Went to the shokudo (canteen in Japanese) to have our lunch.
Very very systematic with a great variety of food.

Can see Hairol and Kee Hong in the picture?
They have FLAT SCREEN TVs in the CANTEEN!!!!
Not ONE but TWO!!!!
Top that, USM.

Had the chicken with sauce lunch set.
Surprisingly, the food tastes good even though it's only canteen food, a total contradiction to what I'm accustomed to... Hahahahahahaha...

Left the shokudo to see this.
An assembly of taiko (Japanese drums)

The performance was very very enjoyable as it is flawless!
Such performances or road shows are often carried out by various clubs and societies for promotion purposes especially during the beginning of a new semester.

Among the many intersections of the University.
In my opinion, I felt that the placement of the trees are much more strategic as they actually do serve a purpose such as providing shade and also for scenic purposes.
Much better compared to the ladang kelapa sawit that I see 9 months a year.

A better view of my room's backyard.

The Japanese are so advanced that even their toilets are fitted with electronic gadgets!
What you see here are the controls to wash different "areas" of the body after different "transactions".

The "throne".
The best part about this has to be its heating capability.
The seat turns warm the instant a person sits on it.
Am seriously thinking of having one installed at home...

The bathroom.
First, clean yourself from head to toe.

Then into the bathtub you go!
While in the bathtub, you DO NOT scrub yourself at all.
Just soak only as it is shared with others.
Words alone cannot describe the hotness of the water.
I was even amazed that I somehow managed to get into it!
But after soaking in it for 10 minutes, I have never felt more relaxed...
Not in a mental perspective of course, but from the physical perspective.
The whole body felt warm and the muscles relaxed.....
A can of beer after the soak was just awesome!!!
