The REAL budget level guide to enjoying Tokyo for Singaporeans

1476270_10151795121846962_522908460_n

I’ve done plenty of solo trips in the last couple of years – my last trip in 2013 was 21 days, SGD$2000 all inclusive. Went to 3 concerts, partied twice, ate comfortably too. While travelling on an extreme budget may seem like a dream to some cash strapped people, but it sure isn’t enjoyable, as it is a waste of time.

So after watching the latest episode of Gundam Build Fighters Try last week, Meijin Kawaguchi III’s custom mobile suit, the Amazing Red Warrior appeared. Since I lack the cash to purchase the kit, not to mention the kit’s not even out yet, I dug out my trove of Gunpla parts and kits within my wardrobe to create my own version of the Red Warrior, in Master Grade form.

LEVEL 3 in Tokyo Dome report

lvl3WORLD

Yes I know, it’s almost a year late for my report (and the Blu-ray’s already out). But it’s my first trip to watch Perfume in Japan with other Singaporeans! Of course, meeting worldwide WPTA fans as well.

Oh, and if you’re -still- waiting for my JPN Tour report, I’ve mostly forgotten all the emcee segments from then. Didn’t take any photos either. By and large, it was very similar to the JPN Tour DVD’s experience. I’ll probably do a short post using screencaps from the DVD footage and google maps photos, but we’ll see.

Also, this report is more like a recap on what happened before and after the concert. To understand the concert experience, please purchase their Blu-rays or DVDs.
