Goodbye Tokyo.. Hello Dubai!

So today is my joining flight, which is actually a red-eye via Emirates flight EK313, a non-stop service from Tokyo Haneda to Dubai. I am writing this one while waiting to board this gorgeous-looking Boeing 777-3ooER and I am preparing myself for a long 12-hour direct flight. I have never seen an actual Emirates plane as close as this before and I am so stoked about flying in it for the first time! I promise to take a handful of photos and share it with you as soon as I get there.

Meanwhile, I am sort of getting emotional thinking that I am going to be away from my mum for quite some time and from my country as well. I also never thought that I would be stepping foot into the Middle Eastern soil. It is truly unbelievable and surreal that tomorrow I am gonna be waking up in Dubai.

Farewell and good night to you, my beloved Japan. And see you in the morning, United Arab Emirates!
