A gift doesn't need to come in physical form. I mentioned to Ru in one of her post over at her "Ru's Photos of Japan" that after 8 visits to Japan, we've yet been to Hakone. Zaini has been quite resistant to the idea because well... he just doesn't want to go where what seems every s.i.n.g.l.e tourist would head to when they go to Japan.
I guess we can somehow depend (hope?) that Ru's excursion would change our minds as she is an off-the-beaten-path explorer extraordinaire!
I immediately ask Zaini when we are going. Heh heh.
Pity though ajisai season doesn't coincide with Fujisan Marathon season. T____T
I bet Ru can outwalk and outpaced plenty of runners if she enters it! ^-^
