Edited// Added more pictures taken from my hubby's phone.
Managed to only find all these pics in my phone. Shall make do with it and leave a memory down. I booked my flight in Oct'14 as SQ was having sales and I was pretty surprised that the sales is applicable for CNY. Flight booked. And next I needed to book hotels (Our main purpose is to head to a country that has snow and we didnt want to go too far because the son will be coming along. Thus we chose Japan only to realise that theres no snow in tokyo :/. Did quite a number of research and found this place called Yuzawa which is outskirt of Tokyo and will only need about 90 mins to travel from haneda airport.)
It was a morning flight and am suppose to reach the airport at 6am, but the earliest train operates only at 5.45am -.- so the hubby and I decided to catch a movie at 2am at Tamp mall before cabbing to airport. Took this pic as an ootd shot but decided to use another 1 i took at the airport instead.
So was looking thru the hotel list for Yuzawa and found Echigo Yuzawa resort. really love the environment and staff there. Basically, every1 in japan is really polite and helpful. (: Was really amazed seeing how the snow flakes come down the night I arrived. My first snow experience and was soo happy I decided to travel here. The hubby and I agreed we will come back and try out skiing the next time we go.
We took the train from Yuzawa back to Tokyo and boy do I miss this place. The shopping and eating!! I really wanna make a trip back every year!
AND last but not least pictures of the Alice in Wonderland themed hotel which I booked. YES ITS SUPER DUPER EXPENSIVE but its soooooo worth it. love every single bit of the room. FAR better than the hongkong disneyland hotel. Would have preferred to stay in the Cinderella themed room but it wasnt ready for stay during the period i was there so we made do with alice in wonderland. Its very newly renovated thus try it out if you haven been there.
Last but not least, I brought a Selfie stick sponsored by bicycles.sg. Its a super overdued review but was waiting to bring it to Japan to use it and yes I used it quite a few time but all the pics are in my camera sd card which I lost. But having a selfie stick is really good esp if you are travelling alone!
