I have been starting the past few years waiting for the first sunrise. This year was no different. Except that the weather was exceptionally clear this year!
I wish everyone a very Happy New Year! May this new year bring new challenges and opportunities.
This is my fifth hatsuhinode in a row. It’s been a little tradition of mine to watch the first sunrise of the year.

I also love the view of Yokohama from Osanbashi. It’s a great place to just chill.
Photo taken by the iPhone 4 isn’t perfect, but it’s pretty decent given the conditions. You know what they say, the best camera is the one that you have with you. ^^.

My Saturday started a little slow. Slept in till lunch time today. Batteries fully charged, but decided to take it easy today. Get some light coding/writing done and that’s about it for work I guess.

This is the worst! 最低だ! Every ramen eater’s worst nightname is having his/her spoon slip into the soup. Appetite just flies out the window when treated to this sorrowful sight.

Recently had this really good Kurofune Burger at Hard Rock Cafe. The black buns in the “Kurofune” are a reference to the coal-powered American vessels of old that brought Commodore Perry to Japan. He landed at Yokosuka and negotiated a trade treaty with Japan, thus ending over 200 years of isolation. I haven’t been there yet, but am looking forward to visiting it soon.
If not for the warships stationed at the American base there, then at least for the sukajan-s I might be able to get there.
