At first, I really wanted to do a long narrative for this… The book Memoirs of a Geisha and the Japanese culture in general are very close to my heart, and if I ever did go on full on fanboy here, I’ll bore the hell out of you. So instead, I’ll let the pictures do the talking (or is a.k.a. for me being lazy, lolz) ANYWAY, the Maiko (young geisha), Hanna and Sayang, are flown in from the Yamagata Prefecture by Travelife Magazine. I am very privileged to see them perform, or even have a picture with them. I felt like instantly transported to old Japan — and if I were alive then I wouldn’t even afford to see a Geisha perform.

There goes crossing out an item from my unwritten bucket list. I’m still shocked at this point that I really got to see a Geisha, or a Maiko for that matter, UP CLOSE. Nakakatibo sila.

Enieni, we can’t find an open Japanese place, so we resorted to the ultimate comfort food of all time…

10PC. NUGGETS?! Owyeah. You can even count that in the picture above! Did you know that you can order this at Mcdo? It’s not in the menu though, so don’t find it posted there. I feel fat, but happy.
