Ramadhan Al-Mubarak

Assalamualaikum w.b.t

How's your Ramadhan so far?
Any hiccups yet?
This year my Ramadhan started with a slight fever which have already been diagnosed a day before that.
Alhamdulillah the first day was Saturday, so, I could still fast by just staying home and rest.
My health condition had actually worsen until yesterday.
My friend advised me to not fasting as she thought my worsen condition might have been due to dehydration and the fact that I was unable to take medicine during the day.
But I strongly feels like it wasn't that bad, although most of the time I appeared pale with zombie-like behavior.lol XP
Today I feel a bit better with occasional coughing. So,it's ok, I guess:D

Anyway, I did some study about hukum berpuasa bagi orang sakit and bermusafir.
Here's the link to the answers:

You are welcome to share your insight in this matter too.
Do leave your comments below.

Last but not least,

Salam Ramadhan from husband and me from Toyohashi Aichi and Hiroshima, Japan.
Selamat berpuasa to you, my dear beloved readers of SUPERWANI's blog!

Neon Pony

A pair of neon pony.
Souvenir he got for us for our 2nd anniversary!lol XD
It was the first pair he saw from kedai kasut in Myeong-Dong and immediately decided to buy them.
Spontaneous thing he did and I must say..it's cute:')
And I'm happy! (although it's neon and purple..and pink!so random!)

Us in front of Gyeongbok Palace.

Langit Hiroshima

From balcony of my home, when the darkened sky is lit again by the glimpse of the sun. This stays for about 5 minutes before the sky dark again.

Nami Island

Among many places we visited in Seoul, I love Nami Island the most.
Well, Nami island is not in Seoul after all. Lol XD
In Seoul, we stayed in Sinchon. Well, I have to say that Sinchon was not a good choice to begin with. But since we planned everything in a very last minute (again!), that's the only decent stay for honeymooners left. hehe..Although our hotel located nearby its loopline (the green metro line that goes circle), we still consider it quite far from the main attractions available to I must say...muslim! 
*Sinchon is called mecca of pub >,<

Ok, I told you we stayed in SInchon.
The nearest limousine to Nami Island is in Insadong (Another stop is wat Jamsil station.)
The limousine just wait there, next to the Tapgol Park (Park yang sangat cantik untuk buat sesi photoshoot:))
The right way to do it is to book the ticket first, or from many blogs I read, they usually went to buy ticket a day or two before their departure date.
Kami yang sangat bijaksana memang pergi redah aje ke Insadong. Lol XD
Trust me I woke up very early that day and I was ready so early. Tapi many things happened..haha..we ended up sprinting to catch the bus!without knowing the exact way to actually sprinting to!lol XD
But as long as u brought girls around, you can use her heart to guide you:)
We found the Tapgol Park and lines of buses next to it. Then we stop to catch a breath and suddenly..we noticed the bus was just in front of us!gahaha!!and the driver was looking at us panting for air!
That time was 9.28am. 2 minutes before the bus departed!
We bought the ticket there, on the spot and the bus departed sharp on time:) Alhamdulillah...although so many halangan, we managed to get there in time. Exactly 15minutes from Sinchon. I panted so much caused I was dragged while wearing frilly skirt T_T
Anyways, for bus from Insadong to Nami Island, it is only operated once in a day. Depart at 930am and return at 4pm. That's why if we missed this one, there'll be no more.

To reach Nami Island, you have to ride on the ferry. It'll take around 5 minutes.
When you bought the bus ticket, you'll purchase together with the ferry ticket and the visa (to enter Nami Island, you need a separate visa. Nami Island is a different republic). But don't worry, all is taken care of as long as you take the aforementioned limousine.
I'm not sure about other mechanism.

How the ferry looks like. 5 minutes ride...pendek sangat. Tak rasa apa.
Us at Nami Island entrance.

To those who is so into Korean drama and k-pop, you sure very familiar with this scene...;)

Sometimes I think this island is all about winter sonata. Everywhere there's picture of these two winter sonata cast. tsk.
Anyway, we had lunch in Nami Island.  We tried bibimbap and something that looks like pancake (forgot the name..anybody?:)). Both are hugeeee portion >,<

This is one of the sudut bergambar..dengan....gambar2 dr winter sonata.fuh..susah tau nak dapat giliran. We didn't even go during peak season. Imagine during peak season. phew.
I'm not sure whether the conteng2 was art or simply vadalism?so many Malaysians did this!They even write together with their working place. Paling banyak puspanita. haa..sape nak jawab??haha.

Nami island is really a hutan. So, you macam jalan-jalan dalam hutan..yang ramai orang.ngahah.

Okla, that is all about Nami Island. We had about 5 hours in here and I think it is enough. The island is so small>,< 
Actually, kalau rajin you can bring food here for picnic. Although I'm not sure where you gonna sit. Maybe boleh bawak tikar sekali :D *warning: I didn't see anybody doing as such.haha
For muslim, do not worry about praying space. There's musolla provided there:)

I strongly recommend you to visit Nami Island. Sekali seumur hidup pun jadila...:)

Twinkle by Girl's Generation-TTS

I was fed with this melody all over Seoul. So, it has somehow stuck in my head...till now. 
So, this is my omiyage for you.lol XD

Short trip for the winner (except yours truly)

Following this post.
The next day, me and several others got selected to follow a short trip together with the invited speakers to the famous Hiroshima's sightseeing spot; Iwakuni and Miyajima.
You guys really think I'm happy?
Urgh..I really tried my best to come out with excuses not to come.
But my husband managed to convince me, and finally I 'forced' myself to go. Lol XD

So, we bertolak at 930am(!) to Iwakuni, the place famous for the Kintai Bridge and white snakes.

Around the white snakes' house. The below picture, most left is cartoon showing how the Hiroshima governor scaring the enemy using the rare white snake, once upon a time.

Also, Iwakuni also full with ancient shrines. Top left is me with Yashioka sensei, whom is so religious. So, he briefed me about SHinto and so did I about Islam:) Top right, is me learning how they wash their hand and mouth before entering the shrine. Bottom left, is the bad luck ticket that has to be tied at this tree so that the bad luck will be left behind when they left the shrine. Bottom left, with my colleagues in front of the shrine's gate. Every structure of the shrine has meaning behind it.

Our lunch spot. Very classic japanese restaurant. Classic and sangat indah! This restaurant built around a waterfall! and part of it built on top of the river!Dalam restoran ni penuh dengan patung-patung besi and baju-baju besi and perisai-perisai. can you see?Macam tak berapa nak aman la makan sambil dikelilingi elemen-elemen beperang nih:/

The restaurant area. Located atas gunung restaurant ni.That's why ada sungai and waterfall bagai.
 Then, we move to Miyajima. It took us about 30 minutes to go from Iwakuni to Miyajima port.
By this time, everybody dah kenyang gile (except yours truly..sebab I mana boleh mkn). So, memag semua tido..haha.
We took a 10 minutes ferry to Miyajima island. The day was cloudy and breezy. Memang bestla. Spring kan:) Then we were greeted by the hotel person with 2 small vans although the hotel is just 5 minutes away from the port -__-"
Our hotel is Iwaso hotel, one of the classical japanese ryokan (ryokan means japanese style hotel) in Hiroshima. My colleague said, we might not afford this hotel if we go alone.haha.
As we arrived in Miyajima. Middle top is my colleague and me with Prof. Gordon Sato. Top right, the front of Iwaso hotel. I know right...who would have known that's actually a hotel -__-" nampak mcm rumah tinggal je -__-"
Bottom is a few snapshots I took in the Iwaso. All berkonsepkan senduk nasi.lol XD

Inside Iwaso Hotel. You ols nak tau, single ladies only Dr. Yamasaki and me. So, we ols dapat bilik menghadap atap rumah orang. The boys amboi, mengadap sea okeh >,< This is how Japanese ryokan looks like:)

Around the famous Miyajima. Miyajima good for those yang suka nature, and suka melawat tempat historical. Unfortunately for our guests from US, the Torii Gate (top right) was under construction that time>,< kesian depa..
Top left tu is how live oysters looks like. This pulau so famous with oyster (ka-ki) bakar. Me?uwekkk!!!geli teman. I tried. Cannot!!My husband, everytime datang Hiroshima gi carik ka-ki:/
And ada banyak lagi  la building2 yang menarik. Very nice for sightseeing:)

The acara kemuncak. DInner :) That's how Japanese dinner looks like. I show you a few of our hidangan that night. All seafood based. Aww..thank you la organizer:)

A few scenes from the night:)
Next day, they suddenly planned for inaugural hiking trip.
Miyajima is very famous for it's hiking activities. But, but..I was wearing gown weih (yea..I didn't bring extras because duduk ryokan, yukata is served. Lol XD).
If I wore pants pon, tanak..dah pernah hiking dah..penat gile T_T
The next day, I met my colleague yang tempang kaki sebab penat hiking semalam and she said she should have just follow me home instead. Lol XD

Okla, I should post this as my own remembrance to the kindness of my supervisor.
Thank you for selecting this newbie for the trip. Rasa macam tak layak..tapi buat-buat layak je la..harhar.

Jya, see you later peeps!

p/s: I really want to ajak my husband for hiking trip in Miyajima. But first, I kene sit up 100x, and joging seminggu tanpe henti dulu.fuhh..penat gile.kang berjaya naik, tak berjaya turun pula.hahaha..

3 coins

Have you ever experienced boredom despite there`s so many things to do around you?
It`s like you have everything, but you just don`t know what to do or which one to do first, and start procrastinating?
Urghh...I`m feeling it now.
I have luxury of time and yet I don`t know how to use it wisely. I just don`t have appetite to do anything including shopping (!). Can you believe that?
I even bring myself to my favorite hang out place, still..urgh..no. 
So, I decided to just stop by one of my favorite shop for household.
Daiso? No, it`s not Daiso.lol XP
But that`s close.
I love the 3 coins shop!! 3 coins, all stuff inside costs you 3 coins=300yen=3x100yen; hence the 3 coins.
This is rare!I know, I`m sharing with you some stuff I got for 50%. Yea..I won`t usually buy the full price items. Lol XP]
Jom tengok!
Thick felt fold-able storage box! When I saw this, I immediately thought of my baking stuff which I scramble all inside my cabinet. Lol XD No, it`s not that I don`t wanna have system. But I can`t afford to buy many household stuff knowing that this house is temporary:( Tapi ni boleh lipat, high durable, felt; water resistant and anti-dust. Very suitable for keeping my baking stuff yang disayangi <3

hehe..as a hardcore pengayuh basikal yang sgt vulnarable dgn weather precipitation, this is very useful >,< Actually, I never had thought they might have come with something like this. Usually, I would just wrapped by handbag in any shopping plastic bags. Tapi I kesian tau dengan handbag yang kene sumbat2 dalam plastic bag*.* I love them, so I want to protect them well..ehe.(yea..we girls are so good with justification :D)

I thought this was coaster. Tetapi rerupenye middle table cover eh. But I don`t need any. So, this has instead make a very nice piano cover! I have been looking for one for ages! *satisfaction grin*

LAst time when I visited their store, I saw a set of highlighter nicely packed in a holder. Unfortunately, there`s none I could find today. Instead, I got this for myself at 50% discount (!). I think a set of pencil color is good enough :) Shall I get more of this for souvenir? What say you?
Most of my household are from the 3 coins. There you go, I spill it out!
