Trivia...



Do you know that a baby whale is already the size of an elephant when it is born, and at six months measures 16 m long! It cannot filter food from the water first, and relies on the milk from its mum. It guzzles about 100 litres (175 pints) everyday!

Don't worry too much...



Just a recap...


at the entrance...
it's cold inside of course!
I was totally in awed by merely looking at those precious stalactites and stalagmites and all wonders inside the cave and this trip happened barely a month after the great tsunami in Japan took place (March 11, 2011). And so I was afraid and too paranoid... so anxious to get out cos we were still having too many mild aftershocks that time. I was like...Aya, hurry up...hurry up. Good Lord we hadn't felt any dramatic shake inside...

I WAS LIKE, OH GOD PLEASE... NO TREMOR FOR NOW...PLEASE!!!
drip, drip...i made a wish here...
One has to crawl...for a wish they say...so off i went crawling!
It takes about a hundred years daw for stalactites to grow one centimeter...and we saw columns inside this tunnel (Japan), unadulterated and preserved...so it's been here na many thousands of years already!
Falls inside the cave???
I love the  gushing sound of the waterfalls ...

wheeew, it's too cold!
Real damn cold at 14~17 degree C!
Flowing water from the cave is said to be full of Calcium ions...and the wind gives a lot of anions...a great experience! ;D

I love my hair...

a little dry...

I love to cut my hair short but am not gonna be tempted to do so, cos am loving it though it's a little dry after dipping in a pool for a day last week with my children in tow.

Happy Mother's DAY!!!



A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
~Washington Irving~

There is an instinct in a woman to love most her own child - and an instinct to make any child who needs her love, her own.
~Robert Brault~

Now, as always, the most automated appliance in a household is the mother.
~Beverly Jones~

She never quite leaves her children at home, even when she doesn't take them along.

This photo of myself was taken just 2 days after the great surge of tsunami in Japan (2010)...so I was just too scared and begged of Aya to leave the place quickly after eating grilled asari (big clam)...
The sea is quite deceiving and unpredictable...that time it was so calm and serene as if nothing had ever happened...

Just right in time to shoot a quick snap of Mt. Fuji while I was riding the bullet train  going to Tokyo Disney....
