The Hague, The Netherlands - 21st September 2008

By: Charda

Wow! This is so exciting! I'm on my first trip! I crawled out of the envelope and I was welcomed by this large group of TVs. They were all very nice for me and asked me about my other travels. I told them I didn't have any, and then they all starting reminiscing about their first journeys. Well, at least it sounds like they're having lots of fun being a TV. I'm sure I'll like it too!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_2384.jpg
Today we accompanied our host to her work. She wasn't able to take any pictures there, so we just sat inside her bag and listened to the security people who were guarding the bag while our host was working. After just a few hours our host came back, fetched the bag from the security people and went outside. She then took us for a small walk through The Hague. Here I am in front of the Buitenhof. This is where the government convenes and where they take all the big decisions.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00200.jpg
Here I am in front of a statue of Johan van Oldenbarnevelt. He was a Dutch stateman in the 16th century.

This sofa was made of mosaic tiles for an art project in the city. It wasn't really comfortable, but it was pretty.

This is the other side of the Buitenhof. The little tower in the middle of the picture is where the prime minister resides.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00229.jpg

Here's another Dutch statue called 'Kleine Jantje'.

This is the skyline of The Hague. The building on the left is the railway station, the central station of The Hague.

And to top it off: here's me with a Dutch lamppost.

Leiden, The Netherlands - 13th October 2008

By: Charda

Today our host brought us along to Leiden where her university is. And because the weather was really nice today, we got to see something of the city. Here I am in front of a statue of Rembrandt, a famous painter who was born in this city.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00244.jpg
There's lots of water everywhere here in the Netherlands:
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00248.jpg
And of course, a Dutch windmill.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00252.jpg
More water, but also a very pretty sight.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00258.jpg
Here's another statue of the painter Rembrandt.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00261.jpg
And this is one of his paintings, mounted on the wall behind me.
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/DSC00262.jpg
And finally, some more water and Dutch trees.

Today Synapse, Hoppity and Resi and Chipper left us. We wished them all the best and hope to meet them again some day!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_2409.jpg
We were sad to see them leaving, but then the doorbell rang and two new TVs arrived! Count and Ambrosius!

This morning we had a really nice breakfast with fresh croissants. We baked them off ourselves and it smelled delicious!
http://i48.photobucket.com/albums/f233/Charda1982/IMG_2428.jpg
Look at the picture of the windmills on the cheese package. That looks pretty Dutch, right :)

By: kiskis

Chiba, Japan - 7th November 2008

By: kiskis

Hello Mom! How are you? I'm still jet lagged but I feel much better.

Yesterday, kiskis took me to the airport that she works at. I slept while she was working and during the break, she took me to McDonald's.

She ordered Gurakoro Burger, a seasonal menu, and shared it with me:)

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3005/3009585852_443db689ab.jpg

It is a croquette with gratin filling sandwitch. It sounds weird but it was good.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3234/3009585854_ffb12cd599.jpg

Other than that, I didn't do much yesterday....

Well, today, it is raining here. kiskis was supposed to go to a hospital but she decided not to. She already has a sore throat and she doesn't dare to get a cold.

So she introduced me to some of her cats.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3028/3009585856_fe592c59bb.jpg

This is Boots. He was named after the Puss in Boots from Shrek. He is red haired and green eyed. kiskis told me that he needs to loose some weight for his health. He looks OK to me, though.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3138/3009585860_be7f9c53df.jpg

This is Weasley and Sakura. They look a bit evil in this picture but they are pretty nice cats.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3203/3009585870_480fb5a354.jpg
Weasley was named after the famous Harry Potter charactors, the Weasleys. He was born while kiskis and her fiance were reading Harry Potter series. He is a gentle one. He told me some stories about kiskis and her partner and made me giggle.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3196/3009585874_f3ce106762.jpg
Sakura means cherry blossoms in Japanese. She gave me a little kiss! She is a sweetie!!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3070/3009592186_ea452dd416.jpg
And I met Mr.Lemony, the latest kiskis' TV. He seems nice. I told him how nice to be a TV and he was so excited about being one. He still doesn't have any plans yet but I'm sure he will enjoy wherever he goes!

Well, I will write again, mom! See you soon:)

Chiba, Japan - 11th November 2008

By: kiskis

Hello Mom! I think I've adjusted to the time zone, finally:)

Today, kiskis took us to the local drug store.

She was looking for some letter pads to write to her penpals.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3148/3021408110_09f05a651f.jpg
There were so many cute stuff! kiskis told me that there are some shops that are filled with those cute stuff. I really want to visit some someday:)

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3275/3020577171_1c860a398b.jpg
Have you ever heard of Pocky? It's apparently big here in Japan. It's a pretzels covered with chocolates. There are some like that other than Pocky, like the ones you can see like Toppo (It's actually a pretzel fille with chocolates.) and Fran. They are delicious!!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3011/3021408222_58a8965f5f.jpg
Mr.Lemony recommended me to try Jagariko. It is a potato-chips-like sticks. I tried and it was so good!!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3175/3020577325_97b66f57b3.jpg
The wall of cup nooles! kiskis' fiance who is American told me that those are way better than the ones in his own country.

It's getting cold which means that Christmas is comming!!
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3269/3021408298_1dcae835b7.jpg
Well, Christmas is not the biggest holiday in Japan and most of Japanese people are Buddhist but they still celebrate Christmas.
By the way, have you ever heard of Anpan Man? It's the charactor on the boots you can see on the photo. He's really big here. Most of the kids are admiring him.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3144/3020577533_d81f819571.jpg
Those drinks are called Chammerry. It is non alcohol champagne like drink for kids. They drink it on Christmas:)

After the drugstore, kiskis took us to the local grocery store. They sell vegetables and such that were made in the area.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3170/3020577583_53571269e0.jpg
These are Japanese cabbages. kiskis is going to cook some stew with those tonight. It might be interesting....

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3039/3020577637_36d625c7b9.jpg
Those are taros. They are great when they were boiled with broth, kiskis says.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3026/3020577699_5687b17b1a.jpg
Those are Mochi, rice cakes. Japanese people cook it a lot in winter.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3187/3020577775_55064b087c.jpg
They also sell stuff local people made. Some fabrics were dyed with some traditional ways.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3276/3020577895_ece8c43a13.jpg
Chiba is famous for its peanuts. Everything looks so delicious!!

Oh, by the way, kiskis is going take me to Tokyo sometime this month. She's going to visit her friends and her family. This is so exciting!!

By: kiskis

Sorry for the lack of updates, Mom.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3253/3037154943_a3cc2777f5.jpg
Yesterday, kiskis took us to the shopping mall. You can't see from this picture how big this mall was but it was big!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3025/3037154895_8472e7a219.jpg
There was a game center. There were so many "UFO catcher"s and they were filled with toys like us:)

As the mall was so crowded, we decided to visit just a shop. kiskis picked up her favorite shop.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3252/3037154919_f5ae937b40.jpg

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3252/3037991184_afa2dd0bb5.jpg
It is originally a book store. But they sell music, too.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3228/3037154975_f65321380b.jpg
They also sell sweets and snacks. You can see cookies in beer flavor an ramen (Chinese noodle) flavor. You can also see cans of beer flavored candy. I wonder how they taste:P

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3219/3037155055_a65b499ec5.jpg
There were some toy like stuff. They are actually stuffs for cleaning. It might be fun to clean when the tools are cute:)

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3070/3037991064_f9a12113e8.jpg
kiskis treated us some doughnuts from Mr.Donut, a Japanese doughnut chain. Yummy:)

I will try to write again soon, Mom!!

Chiba and Tokyo, Japan - 24th November 2008

By: kiskis

Hello Mom!

Everything is getting Christmasy here in Japan.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3138/3055142814_23b525f0bf.jpg
This is the Christmas tree in Mos Burger, a humberger chain in Japan.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3158/3054308319_d9a30e2d33.jpg
Can you see those ornaments that are supposed to be chicken wings?
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3210/3054308385_8b42362933.jpg
Mos Burger was really nice, by the way. I loved the onion rings there:)

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3196/3055143000_b148cd056c.jpg
kiskis' partner loves video games so we went to some game shop and found this big Gundam!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3296/3054309935_005b6cfc78.jpg
This is a train to Tokyo. YES! I finally went to Tokyo:)

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3136/3054308519_8c64da3e15.jpg
kiskis went there to meet her parents. This place was so crowded.


Shinjuku

This is where we stayed.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3018/3055143248_4cae347ffb.jpg
It was a really nice place:) It was surrounded by those weird bars and clubs, though:P
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3288/3054309175_28db8a6994.jpg

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3281/3055144126_cb63fc9ce4.jpg
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3137/3055144000_972367a4d5.jpg
Shinjuku is really a busy place! kiskis loves it there.

Akihabara
After Shinjuku, we went to Akihabara, which kiskis calls the nerdy city. They met up with a friend of theirs. And they went game hunting:)
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3160/3054309729_f72cd8eb34.jpg
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3249/3054309603_266eff13a1.jpg
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3223/3055144478_2a44f929dc.jpg
When people hear "Akihabara", they think of the word "otaku" which means a "nerd", kiskis told me. I could see that being there:P But it was fun watching people there:)

Well, they didn't have much time to exploring Tokyo more but I had fun there. Hope I can go there and see more of itXD

Chiba, Japan - 30th November 2008

By: kiskis

Hi Mom! The weather has been pretty here in Japan:) Today, kiskis and her partner took me for a walk. The pictures might look a bit too dark because it was getting dark outside.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3066/3070708716_4699448ef3.jpg

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3241/3069869569_47659e1be6.jpg
Those Japanese maple leaves are pretty.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3135/3070708818_0fd434e075.jpg
It is hard to see in this picture but there were some cherry blossoms on the tree even though it is not the season yet.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3216/3069869871_dcd027e676.jpg
We came across a big earthworm! It was almost 30cm.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3017/3070708906_a14873e068.jpg
There are so many rice fields. They had been cropped, though. They look really nice in early autum, kiskis says.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3214/3070708878_3060939563.jpg

The Bamboos.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3284/3069869741_d06e941728.jpg
The town is pretty close to the airport. The plane flew right above us.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3145/3070709012_8b79ba7186.jpg
The walking around the town was so pleasant:)

By the way, kiskis and her partner got married last week! They have been a bit busy for a while for their paperworks and such. That's why I couldn't post as much as I want to. They will be busy for a while ahead to plan their wedding but I will try to post as much as I can! See you mom!

Hakone (Kanagawa) and Chiba, Japan - 11th December 2008

By: kiskis

Hi Mom.
Last week, kiskis took me to a trip to Hakone, Kanagawa. We couldn't take much pictures because of low battery:( But we had so much fun there!

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3094/3098496511_660d04a3d6.jpg
The train with so many steps. The train goes up and down the and the road was sloping a bit too much for people to stand. But with those steps, people can stand on it.

Hakone is famous for its hot springs. Of course, we couldn't take pictures there as people get naked. It is sooooo good to have a hot spring in the cold weather. I really enjoyed it.

Hakone has some pretty mountains.
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3165/3098496583_488e53c839.jpg
It must be really nice in autumn, I guess. As it is getting colder here, most of the leaves had fallen....

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3071/3098496613_af710e13e9.jpg
We could see a bit of Mt.Fuji from the train home. Can you see the top with snow? It is Mt.Fuji. It was beautiful!!!


The airport kiskis works at has some Christmas decorations:)
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3024/3099331208_77ec469874.jpg
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3007/3099469116_7977875e36.jpg
I will take some more pictures of Christmas tree next time. See you!

By: kiskis

Hi Mom. How are you? I'm good. It's been cold here.

It's a bit too late but Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
How did you spend your Christmas?

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3024/3099331208_77ec469874.jpg
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3007/3099469116_7977875e36.jpg
Those are Christmas decoration at the airport kiskis works at.

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3111/3159476656_aac833517e.jpg
This isn't a good picture but this is the tree kiskis and her partner decorated. (I'm pictured with Spots Leopard here, btw.)

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3103/3158643229_58921525b4.jpg
Those are presents kiskis' partner got. He loves video games:)
http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3096/3159476702_9a0a29b9d2.jpg
Those are what kiskis has got. She's so happy with the electronic English-Japanese-Russian dictionary.

We had some chickens for dinner and had a champaing but I forgot to take pictures:( I was a bit too drunk:p

Well, I'm going to post about New Year's Day and stuff next time. Miss you, mom.
