居酒屋 izakaya

居酒屋(izakaya) is a traditional Japanese style pub, where the Japanese like to gather up for 飲み会(nomikai). What they provide is not only alcohol but very delicious Japanese cuisine which is the reason why I enjoy going there.
I went there again 2 weeks ago when my house-mate's family were visiting Japan. This shop is call 八角(Hakkaku).It was a great night.The atmosphere was good, the food was awesome and we had a very fun time chatting throughout the night. Apparently they like the food very much.

beer-Japanese like beer so much, for me one is just nice!

牛刺身(gyusasimi)日本焼酎(Japanese sake) the best with the gyusasimi above角煮(kakuni

Web design

My new work for MSAJ Kansai homepage

My first work

Start working with web design when my senior asked me to continue maintaining a homepage of Malaysian Students Association In Japan (MSAJ Kansai), and another one for Osaka University International Students' Team(OUIS). At first it was boring studied all the syntax, but it turned out to be interesting and satisfying when you combine all the knowledge and make up a homepage. Until now I'm only working with html and css and my homepage is just a static web page. Thinking of learning some basic php and java script to make a dynamic web page. Hopefully i can get the time and initiative;-)

Travel Diary:Netherlands II- Amsterdam

"Window shopping"

This will be my last post on my backpacking in Europe. It took me 1 year to finish it but its really fun to look back the pictures and it keep remind me of the nice experiences.

Amsterdam--my last stop in Europe, besides the image of clogs and windmills, this is the only place where you can find legal marijuana and prostitution. I hate the smell of marijuana whenever I pass a coffee shop. However the fluorescent bikini girls in neon lighted compartment has help it keeps the rate of sex crime low. This city is special and you should come and explore it yourself if you have a chance.

Travel Diary:Netherlands I - Rotterdam

Pencil in the city??

Who dare to live in these cube??

Is not a factory...just a normal apartment!!

Street lights

Rotterdam is really an artistic city with its modern and unique architecture. But according to the people who live in the "cube", really face a problem in getting suitable furnitures, and they have to be superb creative to fully use the space there.
