taking pictures of the house i stayed in
today was temari. the view from the building we were in was great.
temari is actually a soft ball where you can stitch patterns on and is used for display and decoration purposes.
for someone who likes art and crafts, this was of cos enjoyable to me :D
my finished work!
and all those there
then we headed over to some hotel's... auditorium and prepared for a 2+hour long nap. oh sorry, it was supposed to be some symposium.
i like my bentou lunch
we had some time left before the start so we went out to starbucks. we had to sign in and sign out and were constantly followed by the yellow shirt volunteers. kinda feel like prisoners sometimes (-_-`)
and the drone begins...

there was a concert going on but i didn't catch much of it
my camera died then. have to get the rest of the pictures from someone else!! my previous host family came!! i spent the rest of the night with them in the end.
when we were about to go home, we realised that it was actually the last day we'll get to see kazuki, sayaka and the rest of the kids so we took a final picture outside of the castle and baded goodbyes.
when we returned home, we went to catch our daily news.
