Nomiji… thus the seasons change;
And it’s autumn yet once again.

Nomiji… I recall the sweet, short spring;
With you, cherry blossoms blooming.

Nomiji… I recall the long summer;
With you, sweet heavenly shower.

Nomiji… yet autumn is beautiful;
Colours but remind me of you.

Nomiji… after autumn comes winter;
Cold yet warmed by hearts so tender.

Nomiji… seasons pass us by;
Beautiful… with you by my side.

Penang / Pulau Pinang

  • Everywhere – Food and everything else! Except, maybe not the traffic 😛

Perak
