First Day Tokyo Asakusa Shrine

MORNING CALL 6AM... and by 7.30, we were out from the hotel to our next destination, that is Asakusa Shrine, one of Tokyo's oldest temple and has been now designated as an important cultural property of Japan.

Oh, I think before we proceeded to the Shrine, we stopped by a park for cherry blossom photo taking, it was just half an hour....
JAL City Hotel where we put up a night.... 
Forgot the name of this place, it is not listed in the itinerary.... 
At the Asakusa Shrine where tourists were here, there and everywhere.... 
Lots of foodstuff and souvenirs... 
No, I did not buy anything here... 
Just tasted some snacks and ice cream.... 
Need to walk a lot but I love it... 
Despite the cold weather, I still wanna try the ice cream!
And of course, snacks here and there... I just could not resist!
For lunch, these were served.... 
Healthy food... oil-less....
Except for some fried chicken... :)
The place we took our lunch....
Next destination... Tokyo Tower!

  2. I love conducted tours, just eat, sleep and follow... Relaxing, and that is what holidays should be. Not so stressful and tiring.

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....

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...
