Today we check out from Hearton Hotel and change to budget hotel- Sakura chain hotel located at Ikebukero ! 

At first we a little bit lost since the train took too long time to arrive..but the JR staff is always helpful and although they are not influence in english , they have format form which include train schedule and platform number.

The restaurant is using vege oil as told by our friend who stay at Japan once.but i seriously cant recall the name.but that is the only fastfood restaurant. I eat prawn burger.

We ask for Halal restaurant if any, the husband call and inform us the way. Unfortunately only 1 shop ..we try and walk there until there is uncle waving us at junction. The shop is so small. Only 3 tables.. we order combo menu which include Nan + dhall curry and rice.Pakcik ni jual arak gak so takkan kami nak tanya sure ni muslim.. at least we eat vege food and maybe that is how the store survive.. idk..

This where we have our nan
The owner looks like Indian and he received some call, i swore after Kuch Kuch Hota Hai fever he is talking in Hindustan. So i ask him when he send our food "is that Hindustan ?" He said he is pakistani so the sound is similar !..and he know a little so after we pay ( we also takeaway the rice the large nan already make us full) i show him the nan and said "buhoot acha" (for me is great) he just laugh and smile hehe..


Finally back to Ikebukero - need to go to cat cafe.. rumors said this this type of cafe is popular because most of working adult stay in apartment where they cant have pet.  The one that i aim from Malaysia Nekorobi is having members day,so we cant go in... but after few step from the block i saw another poster with cat! Nekonomise we just try our luck ..and yes it is cat cafe!
Nekonomise - thank you for opening!
Station : Ikebukero exit 35...few minutes walk.
The cats are relaxing and so do the visitor! they are reading comics and play with the cats! Amazingly the cats seem so natural altho we are new and stranger to them. You can order drinks while you are here.

When we go home my sis want to check another camera store which is Bic and my friend want to go and have Japan spa massage. They can provide female massust ( is this how u spell it?)
