I woke up with a start, because initially I set my alarm clock an hour early (Japan is an hour faster than Singapore) so I won't be late for another day of exploring with Brad. The sun was shining brightly through my window and I was like, "Shit! I'm late!" and I looked at the clock, it was only 5.30am in the morning. To me it's a little bit bizarre because 5.30am in the morning? The sky looked like it's 9am in the morning!

I woke up and checked on my mail a little, and headed out to Tsukiji station where I met Brad. We took the train during the rush hour but I didn't experience that squeeziness like Brad did, so I was considered lucky. We only have half a day to explore together because Brad had to leave early so he could check-in and leave for Singapore.

Tsukiji Fish Market map!

We visited the famous Tsukiji fish market and it IS HUGE! Omg, I have never seen so many fishes and all other sea creatures dead bodies in my entire life, poor fishes... :P Well I'm a vegetarian. We shopped a little and walked around the shop. And I bought something that I have always wanted to buy; Tamago Squarish Frying Pan!

I ate the soba noodle soup, it was awesome and boy, my feet was still hurting and never, ever wear that kinda shoes to the fish market, ever. My feet was soaked with the water. Gross.

And we headed out to Odaiba. That is where the fake New York is at. LOL! The "Brooklyn Bridge" and the "Statue of Liberty". No... not the giant one, it's the miniature ones.

Sad to say we parted our ways and I headed back to my apartment, since I was alone the rest of the day, I decided to walk around my neighborhood and to the next few stations, I needed to buy shoes! In the end, I bought a 100 yen slippers. Better than nothing. And I threw my good-for-nothing shoes away.

The rest of the trip? It's better than ever!
