Its already my 5th day in cool and peaceful Kobe, Japan. I would’ve updated this blog earlier, but the lack of an accessible Internet connection (meaning from the comfort of my dorm room) made it difficult to do so. Also, I have not adjusted well enough for me to include a picture of myself SMILING in the midst of Kobe’s picturesque sites. That’s how I felt in the first two days, but what made me look forward to my stay here is the fact that I’ve meet three Filipinas already. Nothing like a Kababayan to make you feel at ease.
Nonetheless, I’ve taken some shots of the view from my dorm (see above), which consists of mainly two things: Port Island’s apartment buildings and a view of mighty Rokko-san, the mountain where Kobe University is comfortably located.
Food is an important concern of mine. I have been eating mostly BREAD since I came to this country and it’s driving me nuts. Forget about losing weight, I need nourishment (I went to a convenient store this morning and brought me some prepared grub; its expensive but me stomach cannot wait. Besides, I have ulcer). Sigh, this is problem if you don’t do ANY cooking. I spoke to my mother last night and requested her to send me through e-mail (my brother’s charging her P50 every time she asks him to open the computer) a list of dishes I could prepare. So kitchen, watch out for Chef Concon, BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
