The Packing

The packing was done. Almost. The list was set up, and most of the items had been crossed. Visited my Mum earlier as usual. All the clothes were already tucked into the luggage, only the toiletries and my gadgets still connected to the charger.

I spent the later part of the evening reading about Kyoto in a book I bought from Kinokuniya last weekend. The topic that interested me was the fact that getting a local SIM card in Japan could be a bit of a challenge. I bought a local data SIM card when I was in the Atlanta and bought a card from a vending machine at Heathrow. No problem there. But apparently things were done differently in Japan. Surfing the forums, there were some outlet which do SIMs for foreigner but the terms were rather confusing, so were the SIM rentals.

In the end, I'll probably do the Celcom roaming thing. That would cost me RM38/day. Well, I'll settle for that. You know I won't be able to cope without internet for more than 24 hours.

More on the Kyoto trip here.
