Pepper Lunch | Japan

It is now a Hanami season in Japan (during March and April) and for many Japanese, this is the best time of year. The cherry blossom (sakura) trees all over Japan come in to bloom for about seven to ten days. This is also a great time for people to hold outdoor parties to view the sakura. The name “Hanami” says it all, hana means “flower” and mi is “to look”.

 

Goma Dango ごまだんご | Japan Kinkakuji

Is anyone like the Cha Dango that I shared on previous post? Now, I would like to introduced another type of dango. As I mentioned before, there are varities of dangos that can be found in Japan, one is the Cha Dango which is made with green tea. The second type of dango that I am going to share now is black and white version of dango. What is the black and white ball ball stick shown in the picture? Well, the white balls are the dangos which are plain dangos while the blacky is kuro goma (black sesame). It doesn's look tempting to me at all, but since there was a free tasting sample, why should I miss the chance ?

Fried Bihun (Rice-flour Noodles) | Home Cook

"Firstly, put some oil, when the oil is hot, put in chopped garlic, follow by prawn or meat, after the meat is about to cook, put in bihun, then put......".   Standing in the kitchen and watching at mom frying bihun seems to be easy, step by step instructions were taught by this lovely mom to her daughter who does not know how to cook well. Her daughter forgot what her mom taught after walk out from the kitchen. And yes, the "daughter" here refers to me! But I am very thankful to have a great mom who can cook very delicious meals for her husband and children. Questions of "What to eat later? Where to eat?..." do not come across me as I have a great mom who will prepare lunch and dinner for us every day. However, this is no longer applicable to me during the time I stay alone at outstation. I have to cook and eat on my own.

Yong Tau Foo (stuffed bean curd) is a Hakka dish famous in Ampang, Kuala Lumpur. Tau Foo is stuffed with fish (or meat or pork) paste, hence the name "Yong Tau Foo". Since then, variety of vegetables or fried fritters is stuffed with the fish paste, but all are categories as "Yong Tau Foo".

Two weeks ago, we travelled to KL for food hunting and shopping. Among the food we hunted in KL, Yong Tau Foo suits our taste the most! This was the first meal we hunted for when we first arrived in KL.

Lobster_2

Last few weekend, I had a trip to Odaiba with my colleagues. That was the fourth time I visited to Odaiba, a man made island in Tokyo. It is one of the popular tourist spots in Japan, famous with shopping and entertainment district. Rainbow Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Aqua City and the Palette Town Ferris Wheel are few famous spots in Odaiba. Of course that are not the all in Odaiba. Cool

While we walk around Aqua City, we found a restaurant that is serving lobster. Looking at the display set, it was so tempting. With a reasonable price of the set, we decided to give it a try.

Onigiri お握り or 御握り, is a Japanese rice ball made with white rice and shaped into traingular or oval shapes, it can be wrapped in seaweed (nori 海苔). An onigiri is normally filled with pickled ume (umeboshi 梅干), salted salmon, katsuobushi, kombu, tarako, or any other salty or sour ingredient as a natural preservative. You can easily get it from convenient stores in Japan.

I made an onigiri in Japan, with a very simple ingredients and procedures to follow. Those ingredients can easily get in Malaysia too.

BlueberryFarm_13The summer holiday in Japan has started on last Saturday. It is an one week holiday. I am very happy that I have a great time to enjoy and rest on this long long holiday.

Today, I have visited to a blueberry farm to pick blueberry. This is the first time I visited blueberry farm in my life. Full with excitement, I arrived in the farm.

In my mind, blueberry is sour. I don't really like sour fruits and I prefer sweet and nature taste. But out of my expectation, the blueberries are so sweet, juicy and tasty. I really have a shock and wonder, "why are blueberries sweet?" Haha...
