From Mount Fuji To Oshino Hakkai

AFTER THE SNOW PLAYING AT MOUNT FUJI, we proceeded on the bus journey to Oshino Hakkai, less than an hour away, if I am not mistaken.  Not so accurate about the bus rides cos most of the time I would be ZZzzzzz whenever the opportunity arises so that I would be more refreshed looking when my photos were taken!  LOL... Just kidding!

Alright, so what does Oshino Hakkai has to offer?  I remember this place, been there before, we walked through a small village... Itinerary says.. The eight ponds are fed by the snow melt from the slopes of nearby Mount Fuji and the water filters down the mountain through layers of lava for over 80 years, resulting in very clear spring water that is revered by the locals. 
Clear spring water from the Mount Fuji lurking behind.... 


Tourist spot.... for us... 
Don't fall into the pond... 
Filled with fishes and cold spring water from the mountain... 
Reminded me of those dramas I've seen... 
Besides sightseeing, there are shops as well.... 
Samples to taste... and to buy... 
We ended up buying lots of crackers and other snacks from here..... 
Despite the cold, ice cream is still irresistible... 
Soon it was time for lunch!
Part of the food... 
Plus Meat plus beancurd pattie...
Served with hot bean curd soup...
Makes me realize this shop must be famous for their smooth beancurd... 
Love their springy steamed rice... very nice.... 
Our healthy lunch!

  5. You are so blessed to have such clear view and photos for Mount Fuji. When I was there, the local guide told us that seldom the view will be clear.

  7. What a lucky girl eating ice cream in Winter. I have visited Japan so many times but yet to see Mount Fuji. So shy to confess....

    The Japanese eat lots of soft bean curd that's why their facial complexions are smooth and milky white like Tofu. I am not kidding.

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.... Afghanistan Food.... chunks of chicken meat with naan.... Brazilian food.... don't ask me what it is.... I just ate what was on the table....  But I am amazed by this giant burger....  ..... and what burger is this? They told me it is Crocodile Tail Burger! Meat from the crocodile tail?  Is it just a name or what... I really don't know... Took a few bites of it... and I am full!! Well, these were the food we

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...
