Decided to pen some thoughts on my trip so far since the sis is still sleeping. Think she has been deprived of sleep of late. 😆😆 good that she can finally catch up on some sleep now.
It's our 5 days in Osaka today and it's also our last full day here.
Will probably go slow today since we have covered most of the major shopping areas already.
Namba(难波) is still our favourite among all and of cos Shinsaibashi (心斋桥).
Explored Umeda (梅田) yesterday. Though they have big flagships like Hankyu and Hanshin, somehow we didn't quite enjoy there hee…
This is my third visit here in Osaka and the first F&E as previous visits were with packaged tour, that's why we decided that we are not doing any sightseeing – 100% shop and eat! 😅😅
Gotta say after our 5 days here, Osaka has officially become #MyFavouriteTravel!
It has over taken my love for Seoul, Tokyo and even BKK for a shopping heaven! 😆😆
Heading for brunch!
Such a pretty cafe.
In my current favourite hues of grey. 😍😍
Feels so happy just by looking at it 😍😍
Spoilt for choice😋😋
Pique Latte and iced pique latte
Ordered one savoury and one sweet one to share so that both of us get to try both and not overeating.
Wanted to leave our stomach for some snacks 😋😋
The savory one which both of us enjoyed. 😋😋
The price is pretty reasonable too. ¥1188 and add ¥313 for a set to include a drink.
And the sweet one, crepe with pistachio ice cream, so yummy!! 😋😋
Love their merchandises as well! 😍😍
So cute lor😍😍
Seems that our order is a popular choice? 😆😆
Lipstick power bank 😍😍😍, I'll definitely buy if there's at least 10k mah. 😅😅
Also comes in a blusher powder model. 😍😍
The Japs are really considerate. Most of them will help to wear "raining coat" for our shopping bags due to the raining weather today.. We don't even need to ask 😉👍🏻
We went for some Kushikatsu after some shopping.
Kushikatsu is one of must eat in Osaka other than Takoyaki and Okonomiyaki.
Cute comics on the wall..
Placed our order thru the touchscreen..
Our order was delivered to our "station" – Tennoji.
What a coincidence, our table name happened to be the same station nearest to our hotel. 😆😆 #solucky
Each stick is priced from ¥120 to ¥240 for the ala carte order.
They do have sets available too, we ordered ala carte instead as there are meat in the set.
Here comes our order 😁👍🏻
Dip in the sauce once (do not dip more than once) as it can be quite salty.
Here's the toasted onigiri which was so yummy!! 😋😋
Mentaiko so so good 😋😋
Mostly seafood 😁😁
You can also choose to sit at the counter, can interact with the kitchen staff if you speak Japanese. Your hair will very smelly after your meal though 😆😆😆
A mug to hold your used sticks..
That's our "station" hee 😆
Snoopy lingerie, anyone? 😍😍
View from our hotel, which is located at the tallest building in Japan.
Matcha mini Oreo which was really good!!
Finally get to try the banana flavour at Godiva. Very yummy!! 😋👍🏻
Managed to catch a glimpse of sunset from our hotel.
A pity we didn't have the chance to go up to the observatory deck to view the city's skyline even though the hotel gave us vouchers to the observatory deck.
Met up with the cousin for dinner who went to USJ today.
Check out the Q situation at Ichiran Ramen. 😱😱
Went to queue first while waiting for the cousin..
Finally she's here!
This is so cute!! It's from USJ! 😍😍😍
A pic with the nieces while waiting for our turn. Gonna miss them when I'm back.
They do have a very systematic system in placed.
First buy the ticket with your soup base, and choose whether you want egg or no egg…
You can opt for additional noodles if you are feeling really hungry.
That's the ticket for our noodles…
Indicator for the staff to see which tables are available so that they can allocate us to our area. 😉
That's my seat! 😁
We can state our preference on this paper..
The staff collecting our order slip..
They will put down the blind once your order is made to give your some privacy 😉
We were pretty lucky to be seated together 😁
Here's my order!!
You can choose to fold the partition m…
Love the egg!! So good!!
And it's a tradition to do a bottoms up and then take a pic with the empty bowl 😉
Gonna really miss Osaka 😭😭
