We arrived at Ōwakudani valley, Hakone.

Mula turun dan keluarkan apa yang patut.

My mother is the best chef ever.
For me she's the greatest mother any child could have.
At this time,we were actually very tired since it was a long drive there.
and we didn't even ate anything except for an early breakfast.
So as you can see that in the picture, my mother was pulling out packets of food.
Yes, she's pulling out her great "Nasi Ayam"!! yay!!
hihi,for those yang belum pernah rasa nasi ayam itu mungkin tidak faham
kenapa saya would react like this. kan? 
for your information, my mom makes the best Nasi Ayam ever.
even during the time when we had open houses in Malaysia,
all of her children's friends would asked for her recipe.
My best friend who is studying in Egypt right now still remembers my mom's Nasi Ayam.
but then again, my mother loves her and always nice to her.
no wonder she's always remember my mom.
Wan ,if you are reading this right now.
Come back to Malaysia soon! because I miss you. ngungu..
Anyway, I want to show to you the Nasi Ayam in Hakone
but since the pictures got my family's faces in it..it can't be shown.
privacy matters!! hihi

Owakudani black hard-boiled eggs

 In Hakone,they are famous with black hard-boiled eggs.
The black eggs are chicken eggs that have been hard-boiled in the natural hot springs of the Owakudani section of Hakone (the upper station of the cable cars). The sulfur and dissolved minerals in the hot water react with the egg to turn the shell a deep black, supposedly creating life-enhancing properties — Japanese folklore says that eating a black egg adds seven years to your life.

 Fuming from the volcano made my eyes water.
Jadi peace dengan senyuman tapi mata dah semakin sepet.
