Gosh, this blogging on my Tokyo tour was becoming like an albatross around my neck. I so wanted to get it done but just couldn't keep the momentum going. I've had other distractions along the way.
But I'm glad I got it done, and I hope I haven't bored too many of you too much. Holidays are about memories, aren't they? My friend Li Ping's husband has something wise to say about holidays, You are paying for the creation of memories! That's why that family finds every excuse to go on holidays every other quarter! :) So, while it was stressful at times, with petty arguments about who should ask for directions, walking aimlessly, getting lost, arguing about what to eat, dealing with squabbling siblings...when we look back, we laugh about all that, it wasn't then, but it is now very funny. So the memories are all wonderful and now I have them all online!
This is Sean entertaining us while we waited at the hotel lobby for our pick-up. It's from My Fair Lady, pardon the language at the end, but it is part of the lyrics.
Without your pulling it, the tide comes in
Without your twirling it, the earth can spin
Without your pushing them, the clouds roll by
If they can do without you, ducky, so can I
I shall not feel alone without you
I can stand on my own without you
So go back in your shell
I can do bloody well
One more time without clearing of throat, but with eyes bent on tracking the red light on my Canon ixus!
The plastic toys he's playing with at the end of the second video (the clip is cut short on some playbacks, not sure why this happens) are giveaways from his kiddy lunch at Royal Host. It's a yellow tortoise (his favourite thing in the world) and a pink spade.
