Ok so in my one week of holiday I had some food (but when do I not?!?!)…
On Thursday I had dinner at Shin Kushiya because the entrance was beckoning me to get closer and closer and I was mentally coerced to enter despite its rather expensive menu T_T
Garlic fried rice!
I don’t think I’ve paid so much for fried rice in my entire life LOL!!!
But at least it’s fragrant and yummy ^_^
Since they seemed to specialise in grilled stuff, I didn’t buy other things like oyakodon and udon and stuff that I really wanted…
Enoki maki, sake ponzu, yakitori, nikuzune shiitake! 😀 ($3 ~ $5 all skewers if you exclude foie gras or other crazy premium stuff)
What I was eating was really just gourmet Tori Q or Wadori ok…
Enoki maki (pork slices and enoki mushrooms) was alright; yummy whoever cooks it (read me) anyway… and for $3 I thought it’s a no-no since I very kindly blogged a how-to recently, which is a tiny tiny fraction of the costs for the same amount of enoki maki.
Sake ponzu (salmon and ponzu and grated daikon (I think)) is REALLY YUMMY!!! 😀
Very pupil-dilating and interesting and I just really like it ok?!?!!??! GO GET YOURSELF THAT BURST OF FLAVOUR! 😀
Yakitori (chicken. just chicken.) was ordinary… Just go to Tori Q if you want to eat this (to be honest Tori Q makes it more tender and OMG THAT GRAVY)!
Nikuzune shiitake (shiitake stuffed with minced chicken) is… GODDAMN BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY WAY?!??!?!?!?!?! ^____^
I love mushrooms and I love chickens and this together is just so beautiful!!!
So juicy and all that T____T
I think I’ll try to cook this one day when I’m free!! 😀
The previous weekend I was working with Lynette at the NATAS Fair and we spent a good amount of time loitering around the Japan NTO booths because I happen to love Japan a lot and Lynette kinda loves everything but she doesn’t have to yearn for travelling (like I do) because she does that twice a year without fail and to really nice places too T_T
Took a lot of brochures thinking I could do some fake travelling in my head (do I sound pathetic…?)
They were also handing out tons of cute plastic bags filled with brochures so yes, thank you Japan!
(I also put up a map of Japan above my bed LOL (not sure what for but it’s beautiful))
Okinawa and the really cutie pie memo pads ^____^
Nagoya and a goddamn generous gift of this beautiful pen and you can see how happy I am about having it in my possession because I took no less than 20 panoramas in an attempt to capture this!!!!
And in a (heavy) surprise bag with brochures I didn’t think much of while I was working, I found Hello Kitty magnets and chopsticks and notebooks and a keychain T_________T
I have a few more stuff I didn’t take pictures of but yea T____T I’m so happy T____T
Saw 2 Japanese men walking around dressed as One Piece’s Marine and Luffy!!!!
And we had to rob them of their costumes for a photo because I LOVE ONE PIECE (Lynette doesn’t know anything about One Piece and she thought I called her Luffy as a combination of “Lynette” and “Duffy” I nearly vomited blood)
I chose the Marine’s costume because it’s a legit legit Marine’s costume!!!!!!! ^______^
The next day I met with her again for a dinner because she wanted to pass me a birthday gift she has been hiding from me since her return from Japan (SEE WHAT I MEAN?????)
She got me the Duffy pouch I have always wanted T_T
Thank you x1000000 although it couldn’t even contain a cellphone <3333
We had truffle fries and even more fries at PS Cafe as if the truffle fries alone were not more than enough for two to share.
(We finished them all)
The waitress who took our order got a shock and we all couldn’t stop laughing HAHAHAHAHAHA
We parted ways after a double scoop from Awfully Chocolate.
Duck confit at Saveur with Joe some other day!
Not the best but is more than wonderful at its price 😀
So after the last paper (OMG TOURISM LAW HAS SCARRED MY LIFE), a whole bunch of us went to Modesto’s for lunch on Fiona because she has a whole stash of vouchers HAHAHAHAHAHA!!
Not my mushroom soup but I took a sip and didn’t think it was very good…
Portobello and prosciutto pizza!! 😀
I liked the portobello one more! 😀
Penne alla bolognese which was not too bad…
and vanilla gelato!! 😀
Then we went to some community club for karaoke HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
I LOVE KARAOKE MAN!!!!!!!
It’s just that it is so difficult to find people who listen to the types of songs I listen to to go karaoke with!
Like they were all singing Chinese songs and stuff but it’s ok HAHAHAHA (cos I was chanting along for fun).
After all, I got to solo Bohemian Rhapsody LOLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!!
Then Fiona, Jia En, Yong Chin and I went to Tom Yum Kungfu for mookata although all of us were still super full!!
It was good but I thought the one at Golden Mile is way better!
Went to Oblong for desserts!
Baileys and lychee martini!
I love alcoholic desserts and everyone always slams me since I hate drinking alcohol???
Does no one hate the repulsive sting from drinking alcohol??????????
In desserts I get to taste it better anyway!
Some delicious chicken congee at Ghim Moh market from my broke days during study camp!
Study camp was a mixture of Starbucks, Costa Coffee and Smoothie King lol.
To date I have not tried anything other than Angel Food hahahahah!
Tried a grilled teriyaki chicken breast wrap and my is it delicious!! 😀
The thick end of the wrap tasted like roti prata (2-in-1 wraps OMG)!!!
Love the chicken pie from Costa Coffee!!
I also prefer their coffee to Starbucks’ because I find it more consistent and aromatic.
Their passionfruit tea was lovely too!
Some day we had beautiful Chai Ho satay ❤
Also wasted my last bindi on a random day because it was already slightly damaged so yea… why not?
Bought a lot of Ringo Work ^_^
Yummy cookies ^_^
Yummy sake gohan at Yoshimaru Ramen Bar!
The mini teriyaki chicken burger was really yummy too!!! 😀
Moridakusan Hakata ramen on another day!
A lot of additional stuff I don’t really eat so yea, I wouldn’t buy this again! (Had this only on promotion)
The best crushed ice on earth from Jamaica Blue because a whole lot of my friends work there LOL such perks
Favourite pho ga at Ghim Moh market ^_____^ (a Vietnamese stall at the corner!! GO EAT!!!!!)
Ok that’s all and it’s like 4am now omg GOOD NIGHT!!! 😀
