japan hokkaido, day 5 – lake toya . fresh soba koyo-tei . sapporo . suage

Breakfast at the resort!

And I tried natto for the first time. The taste is alright, just the slimy texture is quite difficult to accept.

—–

It’s raining again.

Heading to Sapporo!

—–

Stopped by Hoheikyo Dam but it was closed due to gale. The place around the carpark is still pretty though.

—–

Lunch at Fresh Soba Koyo-tei. Their menu is hand drawn! So pretty!

So good! The texture of both hot and cold soba is really different. Cold soba has the al dente bite while hot soba is soft and breaks easily. I prefer cold soba.

—–

Snacks on the go.

—–

—–

Finally in Sapporo! First we stroll at Odori Park.

—–

Wanted to take a break at this cafe but there wasn’t any available seats.

See! It’s so pretty inside!

—–

Went to Oniyanma Cafe instead.

They roast their own coffee beans.

—–

Our airbnb for 3 nights.

—–

Rest and then it was time for dinner. Going to try Suage’s Soup Curry.

I opted for fried chicken. It was so fragrant and juicy. Fried chicken will never go wrong when in Japan.

The soup curry tasted like minestrone soup though. Hahahaha! Nothing like our usual curry.

tokyo banana kit kat . our new bed

Finally opened my box of Kit Kat x Tokyo Banana. Don’t worry it’s not expired. Hahahahha! The marriage of two popular snacks is perfect; chocolate covered treat with moist creamy banana filling sandwiched between crispy wafers. Mmmm…

Other than my corneal abrasion, I’m having a little cough too. Monk’s fruit with chrysanthemum tea to soothe the throat.

_

Our mattress from Tilam King is finally here! Made the bed too, sheets were washed since last week to prepare for this day.

_

Dinner was a very thick soup made with the leftover apple soda braised pork sauce. Thumbs up.

u.f.o japanese sauce fried ramen . ser seng herbs restaurant

A very rushed lunch, as I have to run off to receive some deliveries at the new place.

_

Simple dinner, since I am lazy to go out and get food. This tastes like Indomie, where got Japanese flavour? I feel cheated.

_

TC packed black chicken soup over from Ser Seng Herbs Restaurant, soup is very sweet due to the herbs and I like the chilli with a balanced sour kick from white vinegar.

malaysia day 1 – penang to kampar

Flying off to Penang with parents for our annual tomb sweeping, so glad for Qing Ming, at least I get to go back once every year.

_

Landed! Now grabbing some snacks and my beloved iced milo (only when in Malaysia) while we wait for the rental cars to come. Kaya toast was stale, rojak tasted just alright.

_

Yay! I have the whole back car seat for myself, I could lay down and watch the clouds go by.

_

Lunch first at Super Tanker Food Centre before we head to Kampar. There aren’t a lot of shops open at the time we reach at 4pm.

I recommend this roast meat stall, especially the char siew. You will get a bowl of soup if you are having rice and it’s a very awesome soup even if it’s cooked with leftover scraps.

Char kway teow, awesome. If only you could see how translucent it is.

_

Always a good thing to be sharing our location, so we know where the cars are.

_

Dinner before we head home, if not nobody will want to head out for dinner. Hahaha!

I must have my curry chee cheong fun and this stall is only available at night. They have the best fried items to go with your main.

Glutinous rice, don’t forget to add curry sauce.

_

Bought two bottles of Calpis yogurt drink, Mango and Grape. Mango tastes like orange, Grape tastes mild.

eyelash extensions . koh grill & sushi bar . marchè

Did eyelash extension with sister!

Look at those lashes. 😍

_

Then we went shopping in town. Weeee~ haven’t been out together like this for a long time.

I finally tried the shiok maki at Koh Grill & Sushi Bar! It was gooooood.

Awesome fried rice.

Damn. Even the clam soup is sweet, naturally sweet because of the fresh ingredients.

Mentaiko cod fish. 👍👍

_

I bought tarts from Marchè! 1 for 1. Haha. Last choice left, so I don’t have high hopes for it. Very sweet indeed.

soup spoon . little wimbly lu

Soup spoon’s spicy salmon miso jigae is very nice! And I like the chocolate cake too. Not too sweet with dark chocolate truffle icing at the top. Nom nom.

_

Ah Lu goes to Little Wimbly Lu.

So many cakes but my quota for cakes met already.

Chai latte with soy milk very sweet. 😣

_

This shop is like so pretty but too bad it’s gone.

So nice. Cannot see buildings in the picture.

_

Woo… Nike can do shoe customization too. Another choice for weddings shoes.

_

Cooked dinner! Nom nom nom.
