Now that I grouped all 3 posts together, there’s that same story that runs throughout. The story of stars aligning itself and letting things happen. I believe the universe has it’s own way of working things out for me. Believe it or not, I wouldn’t have made it if I continued my Le Cordon Bleu course in Bangkok because this final trip to Tokyo would have coincided with school days. But a last minute plan to complete my Superior course in Tokyo in July 2019, meant I was able to make it. I just went with the flow and how all the pieces just fell in place as I went along still amaze me endlessly.
This was my first trip to Japan, and there was a media meet in Takasaki on the filming of Ramen Teh. I’ve always wanted to visit Japan but never had the time. Work brought me there and I fell in love with the country. It’s a place I definitely want to return to again and again and again.
Support local, how else can I say it?
Ramen Teh, a film that speaks of family and love, regrets and reconciliation, portrays the kind of emotions so many of us can relate to. The family ties that seep through the film has also gone far beyond that of work, it has allowed me to build friendships and kinship with casts and those in the production team. I also found myself a second home in Takasaki, where all of them embrace and love me for who I am.
