The huge bag of breadcrumbs, the pumpkin seed,the bay leaves, the pine nuts, rosemary and parsley. Lovveellyyy!
Ok,I wanted to try out the sushi kit for so long and finally bought myself one from the Jusco supermarket. Here's the ingredients for the beer batter prawns. Excluding the parsley. Just focus on the tempura flour n beer. All good.
TaaDah! The results. Crunchy,tangy and wonderfully paired with the Japanese mayo.
And the ultimate sushi feast....check out the slices of salmon belly. Gorgeous! Always love the taste testing period....mum and Debs too.
Me giving good thick slices to the already bloated sushi rolls. Hey! It's my first attempt. Delish though nothing to brag about in terms of presentation and execution.
I bought some caviar cream paste to squirt on top of the sushi roll. Mum relishes on them.
Didn't take us long before we started devouring all of my hard work.
Here's a shot before the carnage. I made a simple butterhead,pumpkin seed and yellow tomato salad with dressing and lox on the side...accompanied with fresh sliced radishes and avocado. A nice healthy dinner if not for the prawns. A wonderfully satisfying and delicious meal.

Check out the variety of sushi dishes available during the promo. There were more which we chose from the conveyor belt,but was too busy eating them than shooting them. My favourite was the unagi sushi plate.
This one was set at the regular price of RM4 per plate. Egg stuffed salad thingy. Delish!
Tempura sushi. Wish it was a bit more crisp tho and warm...oh well...it's sushi. For RM2,can't complain. Can't complain at all.
My dear,salmon...where have you been all my life?
This lovely chap dishing out all the goods to us hungry customers. We got the seats strategically positioned right at the counter in front of the chef so we get first dibs at the chow. Very well,worth the wait for our seats.
Think we've more or less justified our visit there. It was a very long wait for our table,one of the waitresses handling the crowd was frothing at the mouth cos she didn't break her fast yet,yet some customers were just had too many sticks up their asses to be patient and polite for their seats. But it was well worth it. Well,I've had my rations of salmon sushi for the week. Can't hardly wait for the next Jap binge. Thought I've eaten enough sushi to last the month,but apparently,I found myself hankering for more Jap a couple of days after. Go figure!
Thank you so much,Viv! Next round is on me!

My brother and sis-in-law,Carol, was so kind enough to cook dinner for us all last Saturday. And the menu spanned from totally greasy yet simply divine Baked Sea Tiger Prawns (courtesy of Carol's parent's from Sandakan) in Cheese and Olive Oil, very salty green veg in Oyster sauce dressing and roasted garlic, battered squid,egg omelette patties and black pepper beef in onions.
Thankfulyl I could use the pick-me-up meal since it has been a very lnog couple of days of non-stop duties,responsibilities and husehold management.

Something I've discovered recently at KLCC. I love the Super Sandwich bar at the KLCC Foodcourt located just below Kinokuniya. I had their tuna sandwich, but it was sooo good, I will certainly try out more of their choices from turkey ham, to salmon and chicken mayo. The best part of course is sampling them with a beautiful scenic view of the town's skyline and heading up to the bookstore afters.
Just found out that they do serve a buffet spread as well. But only on Sundays and only after 5pm. But it's definitely worth it with the variety of sandwich selections and salads and juices,all you can eat for RM16 ++. Definitely a healthy choice for anyone.
We've been eating a lot 'round MMU (Multimedia University) at Cyberjaya lately. With fixed student pricing and reasonably edible food there, who can say no? Especially when you're on a food budget. Check out the size of the meat concoctions in those burgers above. Top - the fish burger and the chicken burger. And it's for only RM3.50! You really get your money's worth.
Ok,I didn't eat those heart stoppers above. Though I wasn't exactly health conscious as well that day. I has briyani rice which was,to me,below regular standards and pricey even if I just took a bit of veg to go with the briyani. To ease my conscience,I had soup and a bit of slaw the next day at the other cafeterias located sporadically around the campus. This, I like. And the economy rice stall next to it looked pretty good as well. Gonna give it a try the next time. My soup was about RM 2.50 while the slaw was an additional dollar,if I'm not mistaken. The juice was RM1.50,I believe.

Authentic curry noodles with Pasembor and Char Koay Teow.
Check out my brother-in-law,Lyndon, tucking in. Walking around Charasta Bazaar. Dinner at night at Lorong Selamat. Love the Fried O'Chean there.My plate of PihPah duck which I shared with my cousin,Jennifer. We also shared a small tuna pizza there. It was good tho' it took about an hour to arrive. The lady forgot our order the first time and took her awhile to get our order done the second time. Good thing we weren't in a hurry and she apologised deeply for her tardiness. Grilled Stingray with sambal and onion chilly dip.
I ordered the Koay Chiap this time and it was yummy!
My aunt's bowl of Wan Tan Mee.
After so much hawker fare, it was time for something healthy for a change. Steam Boat! A good way to break the ice if you eat in a group and its so much fun cooknig and adding your own ingredients in a hot bowl of chicken stock. Lovely!
