koh grill & sushi bar . paris baguette

The chye peng stall near office is really generous with their servings, enough for 2 small eaters like me to share.

Already at the age or period of time where no new food places interest me, so I choose to have dinner at Koh Grill & Sushi Bar for my birthday celebration.

First time had the century egg tofu, I’m surprised that it’s actually good because I’m not a fan of century egg. The rest are just the usual must-haves.

This Paris Baguette cake is just mousse. LOL.

child to cherish

TC bought me a piggy bank as my birthday present because I have been looking for old-school plastic piggy banks. Hahahaha! Now we have couple piggies, since he got one for himself too.

Oh, I’m on medical leave because of my corneal abrasion, it’s still very painful.
Prepared a quick lunch.

Found this grilled corn at Ang Mo Supermart.

_

Had dinner with parents at Sushi Express and chose my own cakes again from Pine Garden; Gula Melaka Attap Chee and Triple Layer Chocolate. Attap Chee will be nice if the gula melaka was crunchy.

rookery

Some colleagues are leaving soon and we’re having their farewell at Rookery.

I ordered one of the lunch sets and it comes with a soup of the day; cream of mushroom.

Tadaa! The glorious Pulled Pork Eggs Benedict. I like that they over season it will BBQ sauce, so I could still taste the natural flavour of pork. Tender and moist.

Very filling compared to the other lunch sets, I will very full after having just one.

_

Colleagues prepared birthday surprises too. LOL. Two of us here will be celebrating out birthdays soon.

Awkward moment when the waiter asked me to choose one. I asked, “Which one does not have cheese?” Oops. Both has cheese. Ha ha ha.

_

The best team.

Tea break. Genmaicha latte.

takashimaya food stalls . mala xiang guo . ps cafe

Flower shop under the stairs. 😍

Grabbed some food from the food stalls in Takashimaya. This mini oink oink burger looks interesting; lechon with fresh vegetables and many sauces in pita bread.

It’s a very wet and messy burger, very salty and peppery. Even though it’s $2.50, I don’t think it’s worthed it.

Got this huge kakiage aka fried vegetables.

Think I have gotten this before and I forgot that this is quite oily to have. Alright during the first few mouthfuls but it feels like oil is oozing out at the later half. 😣

Introducing Sarah and Nic to the world of mala xiang guo. 😋 There are 2 bowls. Hahahaha!

Ps. Cafe for desserts.

The carrots cake is sooooooo good, soft and moist. Legit has a lot of carrots inside and the cream cheese at the top is not dry.

Double chocolate blackout cake.

hafudog . i light . old school delights

Hafudog. Walked pass the shop quite a few times and it looks enticing.

Ordered a few different items to share with Ansel, so that we could try a bit of everything. Top-up another $4 for regular fries or salad and a drink.

Soyo Japanese

Torched cheese west-coast

When you have both hotdogs to compare side by side, torched cheese tastes stronger in flavour due to the cheese whereas soyo is lighter. It’s a good thing we shared because torched cheese may get a little jelak. Kurobuta pork sausage is juicier, while farmhouse chicken sausage has lots of herbs and spices which may also be the reason why torched cheese is more flavourful. Thick-cut fries are crispy and soft inside.

I would recommend people to come visit. 👍

Had the Taiwan style hotdog in glutinous rice which Mum brought back from Taiwan last night, so much hotdogs within 24 hours. 🤣

_

Visited the i Light exhibits today, here are a few pictures and videos that I took. I think it’s much better than last year. It’s worth taking a look, so do head down before it ends on 1st April.

_

Old School Delights has a new branch at Esplanade mall. I was really hungry already and didn’t really want to travel further for food.

Opted for the chicken macaroni soup because I rather waste my available calories on dessert.

My must-have warm chocolate banana fudge cake, never fails me. So so moist and comforting.

_

Really pretty and cute display at Esplanade.

japan day 7 – osaka . todai-ji . shunie

Prepared noodles as breakfast, we shared a big cup which I think it’s just nice for both of us.

Bought Nissin’s new nugget and fries cup noodles. Looks interesting. The little pieces of meat really taste like nugget, whereas the fries… hmm… not so much. It’s like Jagabee potato sticks in soup. Nothing amazing about it, soup is just normal chicken soup.

The strawberries we bought the last time was sweeter. This has the sour note.

My favourite chocolate cake from Family Mart!

Out shopping and TC wants to get a Cremia to try, I had a little bit, it was soooooooo milky. I cannot.

So I got a chocolate waffle to wash down the milky taste.

Shopping got crazy when we were at Muji. Everything is so much cheaper than Singapore! some of them are even like 40% lesser because got sales. We bought things like cutlery, flooring mop, portable diffuser… Click here to see what other interesting Muji items that you can only get in Japan.

So we had to travel all the way back to our Airbnb to drop the stuffs, wouldn’t want to be carrying the bags around Nara.

Dropped by Coffee House Abuki for some food.

Fluffy egg & ham sandwiches, honey toasts and coffee. Simple fare but sooooo good.

Heading to Todai-ji Temple!

Pick acorns and see deers.

Enjoy the scenery.

Almost there!

Shunie is not at the main temple. We have to travel up to another site.

I guess these will be the bamboos that the monks will be using for Shunie later.

Always arrive early to get a good view! Shunie starts exactly at 7pm, so it will be good to reach at least an hour earlier.

Remember to prep some food and drinks too, just in case.

The crowd.

Oh. Let me give some background information first.

Shunie, a series of events held annually from March 1 to 14 at Todaiji Temple. This collection of Buddhist repentance rituals has been held every year for over 1250 years, making it one of the oldest reoccurring Buddhist events in Japan.

Omizutori is performed at Nigatsudo Hall, a sub-complex of Todaiji, which stands not far from the temple’s main hall on the slope of a hill. Nigatsudo literally means “second month hall”, referring to the second month of the lunar calendar, when Omizutori has traditionally been held. The second month of the lunar calendar roughly corresponds to March of the solar calendar.”

The fireworks is so awesome, ‘wow’ every single time.

It has been a good day.

Onigiri to fill us up a bit before dinner.

Although they are salmon cooked in different styles but very salty.

Beef don at Sukiya!

kabe no ana . mad jack cafe

Very long never visit Kabe No Ana already.

Just aim the Mentaiko!

TC is having the Mentaiko Carbonara.

While I had the Salmon Avocado. 😋

Don’t forget the Mentaiko Mayo Toast! Must have!

_

We had cakes at Mad Jack Cafe. These are quite moist and delicious. Surprised that their cakes is actually quite good.

I stepped in Miniso to buy socks, don’t have what I wanted.
Came out with this bag instead. So cute! $5.90 only. How to not buy???
