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”.

 

Sukiyaki 鋤焼 | Dinner At Japanese Sensei House

When I was working in Japan, I attended Japanese class in order to improve my Japanese language. I have a Japanese teacher who taught me the Japanese language for about a year when I stayed there. Before the training end, I was invited to her house for dinner. I feel glad to have the opportunity to visit her house.

 

Sarawak Laksa Recipe

A pack of Sarawak laksa paste was brought back from my Sarawak colleague since 1 year ago. It was kept in my kitchen cabinet over a year until it hits the expiry date. At first I was thinking to throw away the paste after few months of expiry but at the end I just cook it as do not want to waste this "imported" laksa paste. To cook Sarawak Laksa is easy but you need to prepare lots of stuffs. From cooking chicken soup until cutting vegetables and remove prawn shell, that was enough to occupy my one whole morning. But everything is so worth when I saw everyone is enjoying this imported and special Sarawak laksa that was cooked by Camus and myself.

 

Steam Chicken with Mushroom Using Cosway Steamer

Recently when we were doing house keeping, we found out that there is a unit of steamer given by Camus's mom. She bought it from Cosway many years ago but did not use it at all. We took it out from our store room and keep it at kicthen. Last two weeks, we used it to cook for our lunch and dinner. We found it quite useful and easy to use without dirty our kicthen, hence not much cleaning job after cook except for washing the steamer part by part after use. We first try with steam chicken with mushroon, the night before cook, we merinate two big chicken drumsticks with oyster sauce, soy sauce and pepper. To make the chicken more delicious, we added dried mushroom, red dates and ginger to the chicken on the day we cooked. Since the steamer contains three layers, we put in lady finger and corn too. With this simple and easy cooking way, we were able to enjoy our meal, and it was so delicious.

FriedBihun"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. Cry

Bento_5According to Camus, experience of eating a bento set in train while traveling from one place to another place is a must in Japan. In order to not make our trip a regretted one, we bought a bento set in Kyoto Station when we were headed to Arashiyama in Kyoto, Japan.

BelgiumWaffle_3I love to eat waffle especially when the waffle just comes out hot from waffle maker and waffle with peanut butter is always my first choice. I have even tried to make my own waffle with my sister in law's waffle maker which bought from Cosway. My homemade waffle didn't turn out as good as those sell outside. To me, good waffle should be crunchy outside and soft inside. Of course the taste should be delicious too.

Recently, I get to know about Belgium Waffle after my first try in Osaka Railway Station, Japan. The strong fragrance from the waffle store caught our attention. We bought a piece of plain waffle which costs 126 yen (about RM4.50). The Belgium waffle was very crunchy and tasted heavenly!Cool
