Happy Mother's Day - 14th May 2006

Father's Day is around the corner but my entry is about Mother's Day. I have been so busy until I don't have time to spend on blogging. It really takes a lot of time to keep my blogs up to date. I always have no idea how to celebrate mother's day but on that 14th of May 2006, I did something last minute. I brought my mom to a Japanese restaurant. Yeah, if any of you read my previous entry, your guess is as good it should be Soba Yoshi but then all of us ended up here...

Jurin is situated next to Siriwan Restaurant. My sis wanted to go to Siriwan but she warned me that she had ate until she cried because the food was just too spicy. I told myself if she ate until she cried, I think my whole body will blow up like a volcano. Therefore, the last decision was to go to the Japanese Restaurant. I got to make the decision because I'm paying for the food. Hehehe! Sis said she doesn't really fancy Japanese food but in the end she ordered a really exquisite and expensive dish.

The salmon sushi. Raw salmon. Not cooked. Mom's face turned green. She was forced to eat the first piece then she willingly took the second piece, the third and it went on and on. Mom wanted to ask for more but we ordered a few more dishes too. The taste of this sushi was just too luscious (I'm not talking about sexually attractive women). Luscious means having a pleasing rich, sweet taste; its delectable, mouth-watering, scrumptious, scrummy and YUMMY! I have used all the adjectives to describe how delicious the dish was.

Some people cannot stand the smell of raw salmon so this dish comes with that green stuff you can see at the corner of the serving box. But my crazy sis asked for more and she finished up the whole plate of that green chlorophyll....

Oh!! It's not chlorophyll, not cream for cake's topping but wasabi. From the Oxford Dictionary, wasabi is a Japanese plant with a thick green root which tastes like strong horseradish and is used in cookery. Ugh! The gas ran right up the nose and I can't find words to describe the experience of having to taste wasabi. I wonder how my sis can coat her sushi in this green stuff. She even licked her chopsticks with wasabi dipping. ARGH!

The dish on the left was solely made of patotoes which were flown in from Japan. In fact all the meat, seafood and ingredients were specially flown in from Japan. That deep-fried patotoes had very fine texture which melted in your mouth once combined with amylase enzyme. Very filling. I was half full when the third dish was served. It was soft-shelled crabs. Well, the third dish wasn't that mouth-watering coz' it was just too salty. I don't really like food with too much salt used in the cooking.

The fourth dish was the best to me... (drum rolls) TA - DA!

Bean curd with soy sauce!

I must admit that lately I've fallen in love with bean curd. I just don't know why. I used to hate bean curd... tau kua.... tau hu.... I hate all of them but now I'm just so crazy over them. I can't help but order a dish of bean curd whenever I eat out.... and obviously I must have squid or prawns. Used to love chicken meat but don't find the kick anymore.

We were all too full to move but still have to get up and walked to the car. Bill please, waitress! Aaaahhhh!! All of practically screamed out loud when another dish came. None of us remembered that mom ordered something else just to try out. That dish was just too big for us to consume....

That bowl of noodles tasted horrible, disgusting and YUCKY! The broad noodles tasted like flour and flour and so much rice flour. The soup.... ish! Tepuk dahi! I also know how to prepare. I can even teach all of you how to prepare. Buy a packet of Maggi Mi, take the packet containing the chicken flavour for the soup and then YES!(#*&#)&)(@#$^*@ You got that that right. It tasted exactly like the Maggi Chicken Flavoured Noodle.

In conclusion, all of us had a hearty meal and I'm rushing off to Mobile Money meeting. Have to go home! Can move or cannot move also must lift up that heavy butt of mine.
