Today is the Marine Day and it is holiday.

We had an impromptu but very enjoyable BBQ with Malaysian friends.

Not so much into foods because we just wanted to spend and enjoy the time together.

We played some famous childhood games like this one.

SPLASHHHHH!!! The sea was very cold.

Sekiya Beach. No white sandy beach like in Sabah. But everybody loves to go.

Kampung kampung

Holiday in Bundu Tuhan. Nothing compare to home!

From Tinompok, the entrance to Bundu Tuhan

To open the gate, you have to move the long bamboo one by one. It just to prevent cows from entering the yard.

I like the colors of the mattress, made from different pieces of clothes

Nothing special

I am in need of a sunbeam

The images of Niigata are rice fields, snow and unbearable coldness. Most of the time the sky is dull grey for the whole winter season.

Today was not one of those boring days. So we took of to Shinano riverbank for a stroll.

Those are the sakura trees without leaves and flowers

Merlion! Nope, this is the guard of Hakusan Shrine's enterance

Always find these straws hanging at the shrine's enterance
