Green View Restaurant

SANG HAR MEE <3<3<3

I love the fresh and plump prawns, matched with the fried noodles that had soaked up the yummy brown sauce~ So good, but so expensive!

I like fried kai lan when it's done well, but this is too oily.

Fried man tou~ <3 come to mummy!

*dip dip dip the fried mantou in the sauce* Sweet sauce chilli crab~!!! This one here is the Indonesia mud crab~ fat and filled with flesh~ <3

I guess only in Malaysia, you see fruits served like this.....hahaha

It's amazing how a hot country like Malaysia has such a beautiful ice skating rink in the mall all year round. I had not seen one in Japan yet.

Village Park Nasi Lemak & Rekindle, Uptown Damansara

Finally got to try the famous Village Park Nasi Lemak at Uptown Damansara.

Crunchy fried chicken that's not dry, paired with the fragrant santan rice and sambal~!!! What's not to love about this dish?

It's common to pair the hot an spicy dish with a glass of cold and sweet rose syrup drink.....

After that we went for cakes at Rekindle. The chocolate cake that I ordered was good and not too sweet. I like how they display their cakes at rtp in a glass case.

My company for the day~

These here are two cute kit kat chocolate boxes that came with a small envelop at the back for money. I bought them at the post office near my house. I thought these would make cute little ang pao packets for mum and dad, compared to the traditional ones. Plus since Japanese celebrate new year on the first of January, I bought these with the intention of giving them to my parents for new year too since I won't be around for Cny.

Shinmapo, SS15 Courtyard

First meeting with H back in Kl and we got into an accident at the Mall's parking lot.......what a day~

But at least we had good food at Shimapo in SS15 Courtyard and had a good time catching up.

So much has change in 10 months. Even the mall has been newly rennovated and changed name!

We ordered a set that came with BBQ meat and an army stew. It was interesting as I've never had a bbq that came with egg that cooked on the side of the grill.

After that we had desserts at Cafe Benne.....

Haven't had bingsoo in a long time too hahaha...

Two shot~

Malaysia seem to have caught on the baked cheese tart craze. I love BAKE here in Japan but the ones from Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart was delicious too.

Tried both the original and the chocolate and I think I prefer the chocolate one due to the taste of cocoa.

When in Malaysia, you can get loads of yummy take out food such as this mee siam here.....yummy and cheap!

Then not forgetting I'm being fed by mummy too as I'm home now.....home-cooked green bean soup~

Dropped by to pass a gift to my ex-boss. Miss talking pass this view for lunch.

Eating Japan - Snack series 11

1. Family Mart Caramel Corn

Teiban.....can never go wrong with this.

2. Calbee Osatsu snack

This reminds me of keropok. The kind that mummy makes.....because mum makes them with japanese potato too. The only difference is that this is the purple kind. Lightm fluffy and crispy.

3. Mentai flavoured snack

Can't stop buying this everytime I walk into the convenient store!

4. Organic chestnut

Spotted this once in Lawson and bought this to try.....soooo good~!!!!

5. Meji Premium galbo

Probably one of my favourite chocolate~ <3 

6. Pocky Almond Crush

This has been Dad and my favourite since I was in middle school~ We spend so much money on this snack!

7. Pocky Fuyu no kuchidoke

Best winter snack~ because it will never melt in the cold weather and the chocolate is not the hard kind but the soft and melt in your mouth kind.... <3

8. Kunomitsu kinako senbei snack

I've always loved this combination on ice cream and thought that I give the senbei a try. No regrets, really good!

9. Nestle Kitkat Pumpkin Pudding

I've always wondered what this would taste like and I've got to say I prefer the otona kit kat more,


The packaging is really cute though. Another reason why I bought this was because this could be baked and I've always wanted to try a baked kit kat but I am yet to try baking it.

10. Pringles Mushroom soup

Unfortunately, this has got to be the weirdest Pringles I've had. At first, I thought it tasted like vomit hahaha......

Sushi Zanmai

Some people might say why would you still want to eat sushi, aren't you bored?


To be honest, I probably eat more sushi in Malaysia than when I was in Japan. I usually cook at home to save money because eating out is sooo expensive. Plus, it's not like I eat sushi every time when I eat out. Unless it's to  good sushi place, most of the time when I do have one, it's from a supermarket.

Also, I miss all these fancy ones that I can get in Malaysia. I love soft-shell crab maki! The soft-shell crab itself isn't very common in Japan and definitely not used in sushi rolls in this way.


Sashimi salad with the special zanmai dressing which is essentially the carrot dressing here~


I've missed you, tamago mentai and sakura ebi inari~


While I've eaten lot's of fresh fish here, I miss these fancy ones that's topped with mayonnaise too.


Fried ika geso


After dinner, I went with seawitch to Saint Marc which is a popular chain restaurant in Japan. 


We tried both their famous choco cro and their premium Chelsea choco cro. Both were delicious but I prefer the original one. This time when I'm back, I realised that many things that used to be only available in Japan were now available in Malaysia too.

Xmas dinner in Sanook Thai Restaurant, Sunway Pyramid

First gathering back with the girls and it's our annual Xmas party~!!

This year, we opted for Thai food at Sanook Thai Restaurant, Sunway Pyramid.

Appetiser~

I love the fried calamari with the Thai sweet sauce.


Pad thai with lots of peanuts and chilli flakes! This was sooo good that we ordered another later.


My chamomile lavender tea~


It's nice to taste a god tom yum soup again after 10 months.....


Grilled prawns with cheese. Unfortunately, the prawns weren't very fresh and were mushy.


Tom yum fried rice which was good too but I prefer something with more "wok hei".


Our gifts.....some are souvenirs from our travels~


Group pic <3

It was nice catching up with the girls again after so long! The last time I met Tham, she was still pregnant and now she's back to her normal size again!

Seawitch just got engaged and Jas just graduated with her masters. It's amazing to see how much has changed in just 10 months. :)


Then back home, I have Fuuuuu Chukkk tong sui~ 
Balik kampung = weight gain

Food I've been mising

First meal back home and it's bah kut teh~!!!


It feels really good to taste this again after 10 months! It's such a hearty comfort food! <3


A familiar sight~


First day back home and I'm already craving for all the delicious tropical fruits that I've been missing out on in Japan. The amount of fruits I eat in a month in Malaysia is equivalent to what I've had in 10 months in Japan.


Salted-egg crab which mummy tapao-ed for me~ :D 
Another thing which I missed a lot! I love crabs and you just can't get this easily in Tokyo....


Then of course, I miss mummy's home cooked food! All of which I cannot replicate in Tokyo.
This here is fried dumplings with my favourite shrimp in them! <3 
Home-cooked food is the BEST!!! :D
