In Hokkaido As A Family

Since it is her B-day, we allowed her to choose where she wanted to go... in my mind, I have already made my guess what she wanted to eat... nothing new to the brothers as well when she suggested Japanese food in this place called Hokkaido!

Never been here before but the ambience is truly nice and relaxing.... and business was indeed booming last night... We reached there around 6.30pm and by 7pm, the place was already full... hmmmm... Ipohians like Japanese food so much??
The Birthday Girl...
and here comes the food....
salmon with rice beneath..
Gosh.. kind of a "raw-ing" dish!
Andy with his "forever" curry chicken dish...
as for me and my girl, we prefer to order sushi...
Rainbow sushi...7 colours... recommended by the waiter...
salmon plus roe equals cholesterol... for me.. :)
er... something like chicken floss on top of the head...
any similarity here with the above picture?
Love his Cute hairstyle... LOL..
Anyway, my girl is grateful to both her brothers..
One drove all the way from the north
and One flew all the way from the south
Just to be with her on her 18th Birthday...


  1. walao the salmon with rice beneath looks awesome

  2. I don't eat sushi anymore, but used to like it a lot. Sushi has a lot of bacteria (germs) because the chef uses his bare hands to make them. That's why doctors tell patients with kidney transplants to stay away from sushi. (I never had a transplant, but I still think the doctors are wise to say this.)

  3. chris :Hokkaido .. behind Tesco there...

    houhousek: so raw-ful.. .hahhaa...

    gigi: oh gosh..then i better stay away too...

  4. That just looks fantastic.


  5. Yes, so sweet of the brothers. Such a closely-knit family. Very obvious they love the sis a lot...and I'm sure, the mum even more.

    Not too crazy about Japanese (and definitely not the curry! Hehehehe!!!)...but will eat once in a while especially when my daughter is home. Expensive...old pensioner cannot afford. Sobsssssss!!!!

  6. wow..such caring family..Fernie must be very happy..sweet birthday to her!

  7. its really lovely to see a family getting along you have a great children

  8. love to see how close knitted are your 3 children! They took all the effort to celebrate at all occasions!!!

    Happy Belated Sweet 18 to your 'bao bei' also!

  9. Lovely family gathering. Both my kids are fan of Japanese food but not me. But anyway, all the food looks great.

  10. Can't really see the rice as the top cover full with salmon. Other food look tempting too.

  11. So nice of her both brothers.

    Eighteen...pok pok chui..ehehhehe.

    Happy Birthday to Fennie

  12. Claire, your children have got very close bonding. That's great.

    That plate of salmon with rice such a killer. Making me wanna eat Jap food now!

  13. a good happy reunion.. :)
    the salmon looks good?
    is the restaurant opposite JJ ipoh garden?

  14. You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually something which I feel I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very extensive for me. I am looking ahead on your next submit, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Getaway Weekday Trip To Cameron Highlands


It has been two years since I last made an overnight trip to Cameron Highlands.  It was an impromptu trip, we only talked about it a couple of nights and the next day, all was arranged and done.  My friend rented the apartment from her niece, for two nights, we got a good deal, each of us only paid RM50 for a two nights stay.  Of course, it was an off peak season, otherwise we could not get the good deal offer.  LOL.... My friends planned everything from A to Z, they even went marketing to buy all the food stuff needed, pre-cooked some to take up for our steamboat dinner in the evening.  The weather was very cooling and nice, we had to wear our jackets especially in the evenings and mornings. 

Started off our journey by eating something light from Ipoh cos we have planned to take something good for lunch in Tringkap.  On the way, we stopped at a place called Green View Garden for some desserts before proceeding for our lunch.  Hmmmm... desserts before main meal?
Our fir…

Gathering At Top Grade Hot Soup, Ipoh

HOT SOUP ON RAINY DAYS... Yes, nowadays it pours, almost every day and in the late afternoon.  So cooling that I do not need to switch on the air con these days.  For cooling days, it is best to drink hot soup but do not land into one, okay?  LOL.. 
A few of my classmates planned an evening out at Top Grade restaurant at Festival Walk area.  I did not know that Ipoh has a branch, my first time was taken in Penang.  The boss told us that they have a branch in Ipoh, that sounds great!  I like their soup cooked with coconut water, the sweet taste is there... but funny, I don't know it is me or the soup, I still find the one I ordered in Penang is much nicer than this Ipoh branch.  I tried two times in Ipoh, my verdict?  The soup is still better in Penang.. okay, Penang wins!  The coconut soup base looks like this.....  Consisting of chicken, pig stomach, chestnuts, corn, red dates...  It cost RM58 since I am a member.. otherwise it is RM78... Others are add-ons...  And the soup gang…
