japan day 8 – osaka . yukari okonomiyaki . printoss . umeda sky building

TC prepared breakfast today! Mostly from Lawsons.

Soup again, different brand but still good! Lesser meat in this though.

Simmered flounder, I think the one we had at Kuromon Market is better. This has a plastic-ky smell?

Hmm… Van Houten Cocoa drink is quite legit.

Plan today is supposed to be Sagano Romantic Train Ride in Kyoto but I felt really tired to travel and there’s not much flowers or autumn leaves to see anyway.

It will just be a shopping day then. We traveled to Umeda.

First, HEP FIVE because I need to check out the Disney and Sanrio stores.

Why the Disney stores in Osaka don’t have Beast? 😧 I already have mine but my Sister wanted one too.

Okonomiyaki and yakisoba – checked! Found this place via Foursquare, Yukari.

Condiments.

I’m having a ginger ale.

Kimchi pork. *facepalm* Can’t read menu, so just point.

Yakisoba. Yums!

There are two significant types of Okonomiyaki. First, the Osaka style, in which the ingredients are all mixed into a batter and then grilled. Second, the Hiroshima style, which a small crepe-like pancake is grilled and then other ingredients are layered on top. The Hioshima style uses much more cabbage than the Osaka style.

I prefer the Hiroshima style okonomiyaki, so here it is!

Went Yodobashi!

Got myself a Printoss! It’s limited to one per pax and blue was the only colour left. No batteries or ink needed. All you need is your instax mini films, sold separately.

You can watch the video here, it’s in Chinese.

Hahahahha!

So pretty! But need to pay ¥1000 per pax for entry which is too expensive for a flea market style place, where people are selling their plants. Pay to get in to buy plants? Weird logic.

Umeda Sky Building

It’s only like 40 floors high?

Got the tickets. Went up and sat at the cafe.

Nothing much to see now. Going to wait until night time.

Ufufy bunnies!

Too cloudy to see the sunset.

So we went up.

Look at the ground, it’s glowing.

That’s all. Going back down.

Fairylights on trees!

Hungry and we decided to just for Indian curry because no queue and rating looks alright on Foursquare.

Depending on the combination that you are getting, you can choose from four different kinds of curry; beef pork, pork, chicken and veggie. Add on soft-boiled egg too.

Meal came with a tiny spicy soup, was told to pour it over at the later half. No idea what it really does.

There’s a lot of herbs and spices, like too much. 😂 Very herby. Even the egg does not do anything to enhance the flavour because the herbs just covers the taste of everything. A very unusual Indian meal.

Starbucks!

I like the Earl Grey Tea Cream Frappucino! Very nice with a touch of coconut syrup.

TC had the Sakura Strawberry Pink Milk Latter, I die also don’t want to try because milk.

Pudding as a late night snack, more like clearing the fridge since we’re leaving tomorrow.
