Travelled to Japan/South Korea... arriving from Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), then travelled to/through; Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Karatsu, Nagasaki, Shimabarra, Beppu, Fukuoka (Japan), Busan, Daegu, Seoul (South Korea), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Surabya (Java), Sumenep (Madura), (Indonesia) and back home via Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia).
The alleys and laneways of Dotombori are some of the liveliest in Osaka, very reminiscent of those in the movie 'Bladerunner', and which come alive after night-fall, a must for any visitor to Japan to experience!
The famous 'red torii' path-way of the Fushimi-Inari Taisha shrine of Kyoto, Kansai, Japan.
The chilling memorial of the destructive power of war on the people of Hiroshima, Chugoku, Japan.
Woori Nara Gogigui
While this may not be Gangnam-style, Korean Gogigui (BBQ meats cooked at your table) is one of my all time favourites, usually served with lettuce, kimchi and an assortment of sauces, washed down with cold Soju, good enough to put a smile on anyone's face! Seoul, South Korea.
One of the iconic buildings on the cities skyline, Seoul, South Korea.
