argh... i think i am sick....

dry cough, sore throat block nose.... are these signs of falling ill? is they are, means that the flu bug has finally caught me.... kinda feel lerthargic and err..generally bad.. oh well... all i can do now is to eat medicine and sleep (which i tend to deprive myself though...) hee....

today.. i went to the Soukeisen or better known as the Waseda-Keio baseball game... somehow... my friends and i met at like 9 becos his japanese friend said so... so we gathered at Sendagaya at 9... and realised that the match starts at 1... well.. we realised... the japanese knew.. apparently.. it's normal... so that u can get good seats and practice cheering and stuff... but my friend and i was like 'errr.... but it starts at 1'... and to make things worse, it was raining and stuff... in anycase.. we went to the stadium, stood outside for an hour or so... and they told us it is cancelled cos of the rain....-.-" oh well...

so my friends (Hikaru and Grace) and i decided to go for lunch.. at Shinjuku.... we finally settled on this okonomiyaki restuarant... well... all i can say is... okonomiyaki is officially my favorite japanese food.. heee... i really like it. think one day i will just go on a buffet.. hee... anyway.. we tend went to Isetan cos we dun really feel like going back yet.... well.. they din feel like, me was like i wanna go back and rest... still... good that we did not go back cos we went to Isetan, and were stuck in the food section... haa.. the food there's really mouth-watering! Hikaru and me decided to stop our chewy-guming and start on food testing... well.. we ate mostly bread cos we were lost at the bread section apparently.. haa... one conclusion, which Xiaowen has concluded is... Anderson bread is nice.... it really is... soft, declicous.. yummy... haa... we den went pass a gelato restuarant where we den decided, 'ok... that's it.. we are having a break here..' so sat and eat gelato.. haa... nice...

after gelato, we left for home... well.. they left and i was on my way back when i saw this notice bout bunraku, explanation and performance.... i was about to go and take my train before it hit me.. 'BUNRAKU'.. i was 'WOAH!!'... immediately, i stopped went towards the venue and stood there for 45 minutes... Bunraku is Japanese puppetry... for those who dun noe and want to just dismiss it as 'just puppetry'.. well.. if u never seen bunraku, u never seen puppetry at it finest.. the puppets really come to life with Bunraku... they are like half a man's body size, takes 3 people to move it, has like fantastic facial expression ( the mouth, eyes, neck and eyebrows are movable.) ... in the hands of an expert ( which there was today) these dolls come alive... totally... they move with a cat-like grace and has almost complete facial expressions... well... rather den describing it fully.. try to catch a bunraku performance and i assure u.. u will be like 'woah'...
