Earlier this month I boarded a plane with my dad, uncle, and aunt to fly 15 hours from Toronto, Canada to Toyko, Japan! It was the first time I’ve crossed the ocean to the other side of the planet (big things happening in the world of Jessica Moy)! Asia has always been my top travel destination, especially after taking an Introductory to Global Asia course in university. It opened my mind to the cultural diversity of the continent and their unique influences on the world. I told myself one day, I will travel to this wondrous place of historical significance and because, you know, I wouldn’t hate an endless supply of Hello Kitty paraphernalia and xiao long boa. First destination on my Asia trip = Tokyo!

Seriously, ramen is my favourite food in the entire world. Every time my boyfriend asks what I want for Christmas or my birthday I say “nothing, just take me out for Japanese food.” My friend Leah and I may go to Kinton Ramen this weekend and I’m BEYOND excited! I’ve never been, but she swears it’s a life changing experience. Eeeek, I can’t wait! Also exciting, my FINAL final exam is on Thursday and I’ll be done university forever! Wish me luck! 🙂
