Hope you'll have a great week ahead.
Thanks to my colleagues who are covering my work this week so that I can finally have some fun.
Can't really take my mind off work though. All I can say is work device and group chat is evil. If you know what I mean. 😅
Our breakfast spread today.
We have the option of either Japanese set meal or buffet spread.
Of cos we opted for the buffet spread. And I can still enjoy my Japanese breakfast.
Japan is probably the only place I can eat rice for breakfast. 😁
Our hotel room comes with this multi charging port. So useful. 👍🏻
Gonna check out now.
Heading to some resort for 2 days before coming back to Sapporo.
Loving my ripped jeans from #TCL. So hard to find a pair of jeans with no alternation required. Which is pretty common with a height like mine. 😆
Spotted some lavender at the roadside..
At Furano cheese factory..
All the cheese related products..
Bought the furano limited cheese biscuits for @chloeyingen
This place is really nothing much..
Act only, pay ¥100 and you will get to hear the cow moo as you're to squeeze out the milk 😆
Only plus point is the soft serve is nice.
Here I'm having Furano special edition – the rock melon. Opted for the grape flavour too.
Surprisingly the melon taste is stronger than the grape.
Strategy is to eat the grape first then the melon. ¥260 for one flavour and ¥360 for double flavour.
I don't know what to say about my hubs.
Whenever we travel, he will think of a local name for me.
During our last family trip to Chiang Mai and Bangkok.. Guess what name he gave me.
My Thai name is chiakalipong chakalapong 😂
So now in Hokkaido, of cos he wouldn't want to miss this opportunity lor..
While I'm dozing away on our way to Furano, he and my SIL were discussing away.
Then suddenly he blurted out 中森咸菜 and then my SIL said 终身咸菜. Lagi worst 😳😆
Yesterday's weather was great, 18°. Today is freaking warm.
Imagine walking in the farm under the scorching sun. 😅
We found sunflowers!🌼
Stopped by Shinogane Blue Pond and it looked pretty magnificent.
It's caused by the remains from the volcanoes.
Finally reached our resort hotel after 2-3 hours of traveling.
Tatami style for the night.
Name of our resort..
There's really nothing much in the surrounding..
People probably come here specially for the onsen.
I'm not going though. It's just weird to be naked in front of your in-law family. I can only do it in front of my mum and sis. 😆
Who dare to go public with your MIL and SIL? 🙋🏻
Accompanied with clear blue sky amongst the pretty blooms while we were at Farm Tomita.
The weather was too scorching hot though so we were looking for some cooling stuff.
The melons are good, not as sweet as those we tried seven years ago during our honeymoon.
So pretty these lavender.. 😍😍
And nice packaging too.. So tempted to get 😍😍
I almost couldn't remember the flavour of lavender soft serve (my second serving of the day), tinge of lavender flavour.
Melon flavour is still the best 😋👍🏻
Lavender lemonade, very refreshing.
Nice to drink but not very nice to open 😆
I stayed in the shop the longest to stay away from the sun.. These flowers 😍😍
The lavender mascot..
They also selling a lot of little cute stuff to deco your garden.
I wonder how they dry their flowers, those that I dried are so smelly and tend to attract bugs too.
Very autumn feel..
Herb Hill Furano
We went on to Herb Hill Furano (we didn't see any herb though 😆) and we were greeted by arrays of gorgeous, colourful and organized blooms.
Lots of sweats behind these photos.. As we were suffering under the scorching heat 😅
So gorgeous these sunflowers, they're so big and tall..
More sunflowers this time round as compared to our first visit here..
My dream is to visit keukenhof one day and see the beautiful tulips. 🌷
The Japs are so considerate..
For the kiddos..So thoughtful, you rarely see these at a buffet restaurant in Sg.
Dinner was settled at the buffet restaurant at the hotel.
Lots of variety.. I quite enjoyed it cos I love variety but the rest doesn't seem much impressed. 😆
Tiny little pot storing chicken soup..
While I enjoyed this, I'm still looking forward to our sashimi meal 😋
