Sapporo, Japan

Aug. 11, 2010



Again, hi, Sapporo. Again, hi, the convention center. I heard that as long as there's a conference being held in Sapporo, it is definitely the convention center :)
What a great season to visit Sapporo with Beer Festival but a little bit late for beautiful lavender in the vicinities.
I visited several different places I was not familiar with such as the Sapporo Beer Museum and U. Hokkaido. Time is always insufficient to do check every place...
-- Very delicious meal --

-- The Republic of Ramen --


-- Sapporo Beer Museum --

Beijing, China

Jul. 22, 2010


I finally have the chance to visit mainland China, but is only a 3-day-2-night trip.
We were visiting Tsinghua University to look for collaboration chance. We arrived on the 1st day PM and leave on the 3rd day AM with a whole-day meeting on the 2nd. So I only visited one place in Beijing - Tsinghua University :)

Sydney, Australia

Jul. 10, 2010


After the conference in Perth, I went to Sydney to meet my mom and also for sightseeing. Becuase I already have some cards from Sydney, so I chose this interesting one. I also forgot that I was once in the restaurant on the top of the tower, but it's under remodeling and looks like a ruin. Instead, the OZtrip was quite funny!
-- Blue mountain and the three sisters --

-- The barracks museum --

-- Dream car at the corner of "Boomerang Place" --

-- The best seat inside the opera house --

-- Opera house with mayor's (?!) house on the opposite side --

Perth, Australia

Jul. 6, 2010


Amazing! I didn't have any postcard in Apr. and Jun.! This is the first time that I don't receive any postcard for the whole month... I have to try to collect at least one from for each month from now!
I didn't expect too much for Perth or UWA but actually it is an extremely beautiful city with proper population. The first day of the conference was a shinny day so I took the chance and took some pictures. Perth's downtown area is very small with a few blocks but the local say: "it's enough!" Isn't it!?
-- A beautiful ART college --

-- A beautiful corner in front of the library --

-- A monument (?!) at a corner near the soccer field --

-- Jane Brook Winery, we did purchase a lot T_T --

-- Banquet of conference, see how happy Cagatay is! --

-- Blue sky, green grass, clear Swan river, all inside UWA --

-- The church of UWA --

Beijing, China

May 5, 2010


Angela has so many business trips to mainland China owing to the economy boom and incredible GDP growth % every year. This time, she shipped an amazing car (too amazing that she cannot remember its maker and model). It costs tens on millions and couldn't find a buyer in Japan but was sold on the second day of Beijing motor show.
Amazing car, amazing people, amazing economy boom!

Palau

Mar. 29, 2010

My previous Japanese teacher in Kyoto, Ms. Yasumoto (now Mrs. Shimuzu), spent her great honeymoon in Palau! This kind of traditional place is super good for honeymoon in my opinion.
安元(清水)先生、新婚おめでとう!
Sorry, Angela, we were in Ikebukuro for our 1-day-tour honeymoon, but I compensated you in Finland, France, Greece, UK, and Germany, didn't I?!
