Instant Memories of 2019

I finally had my latest instant camera film developed and scanned. As compared to my previous roll, this one lasted me almost three months before I finally finished up all the film inside. I was able to bring it with me to Japan during my “hooray-we-finally-graduated” trip last March and my trip to Seoul last April. Shockingly, I didn’t even use it up during the two trips (mind you, this camera had just around 30 shots, too!) I was surprised with how sparingly I was using the instant camera. Maybe I’ll use it more generously next time.

Anyway, here are some of the best/cleanest shots from the roll!
(Note: None of these images were edited/color corrected aside from resizing it + adding my logo!)

Some shots from my Japan trip:

Alecca took this photo in our Osaka hostel—we were in the lobby/common room for hostel guests.

Alecca took this photo of me in USJ, behind the Flying Snoopy ride (which was closed for the day.)

Took this quick photo of Alecca (L) and Nicole (R) while we were waiting in line at USJ!

Japan Trip 2k15

Last month, I went to the wonderful country of Japan (for the very first time)! I instantly fell in love with the country for many reasons. Let me take you with me as I look back on my trip with this blog post!

Day 1: November 18, 2015

I was so worried about today. We left the house really early to avoid traffic and the road-blockings of the APEC. Luckily, we reached the airport on time just as the roads were about to be blocked. I was hoping that since we’re using ANA, we’d get to ride the R2-D2 plane…unfortunately, we didn’t. 😦

We left Manila at around 10 in the morning and arrived in Tokyo at around in the afternoon. We had two hours of waiting time before we needed to ride another plane for Osaka. I was just so wide-eyed, looking around and really not believing that I was in Japan! We looked around the airport while waiting and I saw my love: Tokyo Banana. Oh my gosh, these are so delicious and addicting. I remember when I first tasted it after one of my relatives brought it home as a souvenir. Love at first bite! Anyways, on the first day, we basically just went to the hotel and crashed.

( I bought three boxes on the last day, hehe.) [Top to bottom L – R: Original, Caramel, and Banana Shake] Original is still the best!

(We went to the 7-11 and Family Mart before we crashed, and everything is amazing there. I bought some milk and bread for breakfast, and went back to the hotel – which took less than five minutes of walking.)

Day 2: December 19, 2015

We left our hotel quite early to head to Kyoto to see the Autumn foliage. We rode the train to the Hankyu Arashiyama Station.
