Destination Tokyo Tower, Ginza Street, Shibuya

AFTER LUNCH, we were taken to Tokyo Tower...
A communication and observation tower located in Shiba Park, Minato and Tokyo with a height of 333 meters, it is the tallest self-supporting steel structure in the world.

Next destination is the Ginza area, known as an upmarket or should I say, high end area with lots of branded stuff.  Of course, I could only go window shopping, just look see the Burberry, Blue Label, Celine among others....

For dinner, we had Shabu-Shabu... not sure what it is called in Japan, as far as I am concerned, I call it steamboat... LOL...

After dinner, we checked in to our hotel which is connected to a shopping mall.  Too bad it closes at 9pm, some even earlier... anyway, I was really tired by then.... once hit the pillows, it was ZZZZzzzz for me!
Taken at Tokyo Tower.... 
From the ground level...
And scenery from above the high tower.... 
Don't look down.. just at eye level...
They have a mini Skywalk Window up here..... 
My legs turned "jelly" when I stepped on it.... 
Looking down from the skywalk... 
One of my legs... 

At Ginza area.. high end... so I noticed not many shoppers....
Perhaps it was a weekday.... 
But it is not the case in Shibuya, the most busy intersection in the world... 
Well, rumoured to be... 
It is like a giant beating heart, sending people in all directions with every traffic light change... 
At peak times, it is said to be over 1000 people at this intersection... 
All I see is humans and more humans..... 
And it was not even the peak hour...... 
Then...
Dinner time!
Endless food... Buffet style.... 
Satisfaction Guaranteed!!  LOL...

  4. I remember Ginza, was there in the 80's so very long ago. I think I went to Tokyo Tower too. Can't remember much other than everything was so expensive. I am sure it is very much more so now.

Our Orders From Afghanistan, Spanish And Australia

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm....... Somehow we managed to... and these were what my boys brought back to our table.... Mexican rice with oysters... or is it Spanish rice?   Both are the same, I guess... LOL....

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
