Must go places in Osaka are....

My last trip to Japan ends in Osaka. It's another big city but with a refreshing vibe compare to Tokyo which look like just any other big city. Osaka can be compared as the Busan of South Korea, if you ever tried to visit Busan, where the people here have a more straightforward personalities, and it's the city where the food is so famous, and last but not least are the city which located near the beach and ocean. =D
1. Osaka Castle
Before visiting Osaka, I've been staying for few days in Kyoto, and have seen quite a lot of ancient palace, houses, and ancient stuffs, so when it's time to visit the Osaka Castle, I've lost my interest to wandering inside, so I decided to watch from afar, and just take some relaxing time in the park nearby where I can see Osaka Castle from the distance. =D

2. Namba & Shinsaibashi District
In this Namba & Shinsaibashi District (the district located next to each other), basically you can resolved anything in Osaka. This is the district where you can eat lots and varieties of street food, where you can visit the popular glico store and shop for your pocky snack and some other famous local snacks, and this also the place where you can shop till your legs go weak. They got lots of varieties good from cheap ones to the branded ones.
3. Umeda Hankyu Department Store
Since it's just another department store, I didn't take a picture of it. But if you're going to shop around this department store in a group, I would like to warn you to walk together all the time. The place is sooooo big that you might got separated from your group. And, once you get separated it will be very hard for you to find one and another. >.< The department linked 3 stations at one, which are Umeda Station, Nishi Umeda Station, Higashi Umeda Station. Can you imagine how big the place is? LOLZ

4. Tenzo Park & Mikanoshima Bridge
You should visit Tenzo Park and the aquarium nearby during the day, and once you get tired with playing around the beach, then you can take a bus which will take you to nearby Mikanoshima Bridge area. It will take another 5~7 minutes walk from the bus stop before you can see the beautiful bridge at night.
5. Shinsekai
This might be the oldest street and have been tourist destination for since a long time ago, but I still like this place the best.
Everything looks old and run down, and you won't see a single people once you get out of the station, but don't feel disappointed first. Just keep going down and you'll see a street full of lights and when you get into the alley, you will see all kind of restaurant with unique billboard.
Almost every sign board of the restaurants in this area is a 3D sign board with lots of cute character and unique design. I can't even blink my eyes when I walk through the alley. This was just so amazing!
It's as if I was being whirled into some imagination world, and it was such a new and refreshing things to see for me.
And there's lot of people around this area, but it's not as crowded as Namba or Shinsaibashi area. It's not as crowded as Hankyu Department Store as well, where you might get lost easily. You just have to walk straight forward and backward around the alley, then you'll be able to find your way in and out.
Beside selling some local delicacies, most of the restaurant around this area mostly sells fried skewers.
And there's even this restaurant which opens 24 hour, which most of the menu area fried skewers, but they also sells XXXXL portion of food with a very cheap price.
But of course the XXXXL portion food with low price is being sold for limited amount for the day. The large sized menu is being varied from large sized yaki soba, okonomiyaki, karage, takoyaki, pudding, and so much more.
We would like to try the large sized yaki soba, but they are running out of portion. So instead of trying out the yaki soba, we tried the japanese style shabu-shabu with lots of meats and vegetables and a portion of large sized karaage. YUMMY!

Miryang Gang Rape = Signal's Last Unsolved Case?

If you're a fan of this Korean drama, Signal, which obviously I am then you would know that they're on their last case which tells about a gang rape which happens in a small city, Inju. A lot of people has been debating on whether this case is based on true events which happens back in Miryang in 2004. And once again the case which happened 12 years ago is getting people's attention.

Seoul Plastic Surgery : Real Story for Breast Augmentation~ Operasi Plastik di Korea : Pembesaran Payudara~

I have always wanted a glamorous body. I have a flat chest, which makes me feel inferior when I have to go to the beach with a bunch of friends, where my friends wear beautiful bikini, while I'm only able to take a look and feel envy of it.
Dr. Kim Dong Gyu is one of the best korean surgeon in breast surgery, and can be considered as top breast surgeon in Korea. Dr. Kim is stationed in Izien Plastic Surgery Hospital, which has won several Customer Satisfaction Awards since 2011 up to 2014. This make me feel more comfortable to have the surgery here. Since I decided to go on with the surgery, the nurses took me to the 3rd floor for a blood sample, so you can see a bandage on my hand when I took my before pictures. ^^
The surgeon gives a very detailed consultation on my current breast problem, how he will do the surgery and what type of implants he will be using. I was amazed by how patient he is to answer my questions 1 by 1, as you knew that many Korean Surgeons are very impatient…

[Review] on The King's Woman

Since the Korean Drama has been very disappointing lately. There are no good K-Dramas to watch lately, so I started to drooling over Chinese Drama titled the 'Princess Agent' which is played by the super famous Chinese actress, Zhao Li Ying, but again the drama is so disappointing with the lack of acting skill of the main actor, then a confusing story line which gets us to no where, and an end which ended without any conclusion at all! Then, I stumbled into this drama, which just started to air like 3 weeks ago, and still have another 30 episodes to go. Despite the cliche plot just like every other Chinese ancient imperial palace drama, this drama is likeable. At first I started to watch because the main girl, Dilraba Dilmurat, is super pretty and the trailer which has been go on like weeks is super awesome. The stories is about love stories of King of Qin and this pretty girl, which of course a fictional story. If you don't know who he is, King of Qin is the one who conq…
