Vegas is HOT…what??

27 Aug

Well, I’m back from my Vegas and Japan trip! And It’s been much too long since I’ve last updated my little blog. I guess you could say I was busy, or I loafted…or whatever the case is, I slacked. Not much else to say :S I guess you could say today’s post is going to be a little summary of week in VEGAS!!

 

So, the first place we actually ventured to was Buffalo, which we stayed for a night. Then the next morning we flew to Vegas for our one week stay!

 

^The sandwich factory. Okay, actually I’m not even sure if it was called that, but it’s basically like… there’s a paper bag and you…basically CHECK OFF what you want in your sub/sandwich…. to speed up the process of creating “diy-type” sandwiches! Pretty smart huh! But still airplane food is damn expensive….

 

 

^I love having the window seat because I love clouds

When we arrived our first thought was “WHAT? WHY IS IT SO HOT??” Let me tell you, I thought I was in an OVEN!! Who knew vegas was so hot?!?!?! (Later I told boyfriend, he said “what did you expect? you’re in a freakin’ dessert…”) It  was crazy I’m tellin’ ya!

 

^Me posing with a statue iguana at the airport in Vegas! Very cute if you ask me ;P

 

^Guess what we see right at the airport…. =.= for the record and my female readers. NEVER I repeat NEVER trust a man who gambles… or marry him for that matter! If they’re addicted it’s like a recipe for disaster and either way it’s terrible for trying to finance a family. Boyfriend told me to try a dollar or a penny in the slots, but I’m still underage T_T

 

 

 

^The car we used during this week. I’m not exactly sure which car it is, so I’ll leave it to you car experts to figure it out!! It was quite spacious and I liked this car a lot ^^ Maybe boyfriend will consider getting this car HAHA ! Joking, I think it’s quite expensive to buy T_T

 

^…of course America would. Bacon in everything, if you ask me I think that is DISGUSTING. Who in the right mind would eat SUCH A MONSTROSITY????

 

^Look who we came across! The Mario brothers in Vegas! who would have guessed???

 

Some pics from the Vdara suites! Very beautiful and I was super impressed! They also had very good wifi so I could skype my baby muffin with clear quality! #highqualityhotelperks

 

^The kitchen, where we ate. Erm… a nice kitchen? you can’t see in this picture but to the right of the fridge, there is actually a WASHING and drying machine! In a room! How many places have that I ask you? Not many! Horray for vegas having nice places to stay!!

 

^Our “living room” where some of us slept on the pullout couch bed hehehe 🙂

 

^Bedroom! That bed is actually VERY comfy! Squishy and nice… but to be honest I myself prefer sleeping on hard floors (like I mean futon-type things) hehehehe….

 

^The beautiful bathroom! Every night I took a bath in the bathtub, while texting/kiking people! Very relaxing and I can understand why people in Japan do this often ^^

 

^Hitting the swimming pool!

 

^Let me tell you… people in Vegas are crazy! Getting tanned and shit while swimming… THIS IS HOW MY SISTER AND I DO! Hot tub therapy without the crazy sunburns!!

 

^Beautiful chocolate statue of a woman inside the neighboring hotel…. err I don’t quite remember the name of it :S Imagine devouring that all! #fatlife

 

^The beautiful chocolate fountain!! Who that random lady is, I’ll never know. All I know is, she decided to sneak into my shot… #RUDE

 

^A beautiful garden within one of the hotels! Almost a utopia-type feeling! What, with the merry-go-round and the sphere and giant bees in the air? (fake, of course)

 

^Visited the red rock canyon! Quite the drive… It was nice, I mean… rocks and all. Majestic… (not sure of sarcastic or not myself… #youngpeopleproblems)

 

^Me pretending to gamble. I don’t even know how okay -.-

 

^I won a domo from the UFO catcher game!! On my first try too!! Cute pink domo yess!! Very happy with myself that day ^^ kekeke

 

^Welcome to the famous Las Vegas!! 🙂

 

^Snapped a quick pic of the pink Cadillac + fake Elvis at the sign’s parking lot to show my boyfriend because he likes Cadillacs I think! Or so I thought, when I showed him all I got was a “lol”… T_T

 

^The light show in… I’m not sure where. I think you guys hate me because I just don’t pay enough attention to what my Dad tells me when we go places… BUT it was a beautiful light show along with the song that goes “byee byee miss american pie” I forgot what the song’s called too, sorry I’m not old enough 😦

 

We then ventured to Phoenix, and my Dad’s friend Alfred (THE cutest middle aged man in the WORLD) took us around to see the Grand Canyons and whatnot! While in Phoenix, we stayed at the Walking Stick… or maybe the Talking stick resort. I’m not sure which one it was, but it had acceptable wifi access, so it was good! And they had nice smelling soaps and shampoos #plus

 

^We visited Hoover Dam!! Apparently it is one of the largest Dams ever and was like… instructed or something to be build by Herbert Hoover! o: #anniethemusicalreference

 

^One of Alfred’s many cats! I loved visiting his house because there are so many cats!! I love cats!!

 

^Grand Canyons!! Not going to lie though, I was SO SCARED… I mean it was definitely majestic and beautiful, but I just COULD NOT take much of it, I was too scared!!

 

 

^Beautiful garden #2!! Can you believe how pretty it is, and how it’s maintained in the 40+ degrees dry climate?!?!

 

After Phoenix, we returned to Vegas to spend our last night. My father booked a night at the Palazzo! It was so grand I can not even describe how good it felt to stay there… even though I ended up being the one to sleep on the floor….I took some pictures but my pictures did the hotel NO justice whatsoever as you can see from the below photo:

 

For a better idea on how  it was, check out the actual site: HERE

 

I believe if you go on other “Auction” type sites, you can get these rooms for about 100 or a bit more! That’s what my Daddy did 🙂

Then we were off to Japan!

 

 

^Matching outfits with my two sisters! We were identical going on the flight (except for our shoes…) hehehe.

 

 

^Last kik message exchange between boyfriend and I before I left for LA connecting flight to Narita (Tokyo Airport).

 

Anddd that was it for Vegas!! 😀 hehehe Quite an adventure we had!

Kat’s Prom 2012

29 Jun

Wow so me blogging has become way overdue! Things have been really hectic with me being a senior and all with graduation and final assignments/tests and whatnot 😡

Today I wanna just blog about my Prom experience, since Prom (to me, at least) was a pretty big thing. For my boyfriend it wasn’t really a big deal apparently -.- but to me it was pretty important! (I mean, it’s prom! Once in a lifetime prom!)

Okay wow. hmm. Where does this story even start? I was pretty stoked about Prom ever since my grade 11 year when my grade 12 friends went, and they took pictures and whatnot. I mean, what’s not to be excited about? Formal wear, dancing, pictures, princess-feeling… Of course, back in grade 11 I scoffed at the idea of having a date. I thought multiple times, “No… what if we break up and the prom pictures goes to waste?” and didn’t even speculate that I would be going to prom with a date; of course I was wrong. *Cue Mr. Leo*

So, after awhile of Mr. Leo and I dating, I found out he did not particularly have much interest in attending prom. I didn’t want to push him, but I wanted him to go with me. (I mean, we need prom pictures to show our children….) LOL After some small drama (which isn’t really worth mentioning), we decided to attend prom together.

*ehem*

Promposal (n) – the act of asking somebody to prom in an elaborate manner. A combination of the words prom and proposal.

I feel like, many girls dreams are to get the perfect promposal… am I wrong? ahaha. I honestly though, did not think my boyfriend was going to prompose… like, I felt almost as if it was just a given that we would go to prom together… so I didn’t quite expect it (although I can not deny I wanted it…)

Sooo it came as quite the surprise when my boo boo muffin decided to prompose to yours truly. He called me randomly one night as I was helping his cousin with her homework, telling me to look outside. What did I see?… let me show you, rather than try to explain what him and his friends did…

It was so pretty! I was so happy about this! It was so sweet, and he also gave me a bunch of flowers… which him and his friends apparently obtained in an *cough* interesting manner XD hmm… too bad I didn’t take a nice picture of them… they’re still on my desk but they’re dry flowered.

Any-who, so time passed and finally, prom tickets were being sold. 85$ for “early bird” tickets, and after that the tickets were 90$. (I know, I thought they were mad expensive too!…) Mr. Leo and I contemplated just using the prom money to have our own formal night, but in the end we decided (well, I…) decided to stick with going to Prom… I mean we could always go to formal nights any other time, but Prom? Prom is only once! And… I need those prom pics ahaha. So we decided to attend prom. We rented a limo with like, 18 others.

Our prom was held at Arcadian Court, in downtown Toronto. Er… the theme? Midnight something? I don’t quite remember #guilty

Enough with the talk. PICTURES!

^Me and my very handsome boyfriend, Mr. Muffin.

^Take 2

^Inside, the tables we sat at from a floor higher.

^A group shot we took for prom pics!

^ Boutonniere and Corsage 🙂 Mr. Muffin got them so pretty! They are not dry flowers sitting on his desk at his house… unless he threw them out :S He better not have!

^A dolly-like picture of me ! Taken courtesy of Mr. Leo.

^A very characteristic photo of my Lion baby.

^Look at all those people! And guys, this is not even half of the attendees…

^What a romantic candle right? 😛

^Our table for the night. We had a hard time determining which pieces of cutlery belonged to who… I need to brush up on my table manner knowledge.

Now let us move onto the meal of the night shall we?

^The meal listing for that night

^The bread with butter. Everyone thought the bread was too chewy/hard, but I kind of liked it, if it weren’t for my annoyingly pained jaw…

^Meal #1, the salad piece. I personally liked it, especially the crispy things. Quite a delightful salad, and I liked devouring it like the hungry monster I was.

^Dish #2! Chicken thing… okay. The chicken bit was delicious, the meat was tender and nice, but I didn’t really like the items beneath it. Mashed potato.. gravy and whatnot? It was a bit too Swiss chalet for my liking. The herbs on the chicken  were phenomenal though!

^Me with the food! #bloggerthings

^The dessert piece, which I was extremely disappointed about. I mean it was just a cupcake! Something I could probably find in my super market!!….

^Nonetheless, I decided to promptly camwhore with the top cherry piece of the sorry excuse for a prom dessert.

^The delightful drink we were able to obtain at the drink bar 🙂

^KATCEPTION!!

^Cheers!

^Just a bit of blog PDA no biggie right? ;P

^When the dance music came on and people started hitting the dance floor, we decided to sit for a bit and camwhore in the lighting. Made us blurry! Probably because of the dark 😡

^Me, taking a reflection picture from the top of the limo 😡 I was so tired!!

^The only close-up you’re going to get of  my eyes 😛

Last picture for this post! It’s actually a picture my friend took for me of my Muffin and I slow-dancing. The song was “I don’t wanna miss a thing” by Aerosmith! I love this song!! Anywho, this next picture is one of my favourite!

Well, the original was just the picture, but I edited it a bit 😛 Just some filters and lighting adjustments, that’s about it ^^

After prom is a whole different story for another time 😉 hehe. You can probably guess what went down though.

Thanks for reading! I appreciate every single view and comment, so please leave me comments, follow/sub my blog! I reply each and every comment I receive! ;O

Pittsburgh and Buffalo Adventures!

28 Mar

Soo…..over the march break the fam and I took some famjam time off, and went to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania as well as visited Buffalo! 🙂

^Me, wish Junior again! yes, I took Junior again haha. 🙂 Was gonna miss my Bunny-boo, so took Junior!

^Crossing the bridge that takes us to the US border! …. Yes I took this from my seat haha! Mr. Leo was texting me the entire way, before we got to the borders. I lent him my computer so that he could play maple story… yes, my muffin plays maple story LOL He enjoys getting defamed….

^So, after we crossed we came across this little…. place that is a stop-by for many people on road trips. This happens to be a little stand inside the place, filled with coffee and coffee snacks.

^It was during the time of St. Patty’s day! They had this shamrock shake available at McDicks!! We all decided to order one and share it, to see how it tasted…..

^Well?!?! Doesn’t that look damn good!!!…. as well as mad fattening? -.- I mean would you look at the whipped cream at the top?? That alone looks like it could devastate a blood vessel…

How does it taste you ask? Well… GOOD. It’s this sweet, creamy substance that tastes like a frosty cream filling in your mouth. It is heavenly, but definitely not something one should order on their own…. we were a family of 5, and we barely finished it by the time everyone got full from taking mini sips….

So… in the hallway that led us from the parking lot to the eateries, there were a number of Easter decorations put up… although it was quite early for Easter but anywho….

Easter Bunny #1

Eater Bunnies #2 and #3

^Easter Chick #1

And… that’s about all the pics I took of the Easteries.

HOTEL THINGS 

We stayed at The Embassy Suites Pittsburgh International Airport hotel and were VERY impressed!! At only about $85.00 per night, we were able to stay at a place that offered beautifully serene scenery, as well as a complimentary breakfast buffet!

Here are some pictures (although, unfortunately, I was dumb, didn’t bring my camera… used itouch camera which did the hotel no justice…) of the beautiful hotel.

^The lobby, a very homey welcoming place! Felt very welcome as soon as I stepped into the hotel! A definite plus!

^ There was a wonderful koi pond/waterfall near the entrance…

^More of the beautiful pond/waterfall

^taken from above

^The dining hall below! Isn’t it damn beautiful looks just like a patio!!

 

INSIDE THE HOTEL ROOM

^Le random lamp place. Okay…poor picture choice, still nice okay!

^The beds were so nice #swag

Camwhored a bit before we went down to dinner… mind you, I was 100% make-up free the first day…

^Look at my cute Hello Kitty itouch case!

^My little sister Chinsley and I ❤

DINNER…

So, for dinner, we contemplated going a number of places, but eventually decided to dine in the hotel, at the restaurant/bar there. We weren’t expecting delicious + cheap food, and we were right, but nonetheless we were quite satisfied with our meal that night.

^The table setup is quite nice right?

^ The appetizers! A Caesar salad, spinach salad, calamari and buffalo wings 🙂 VERY delicious, and has made me fall in love with spinach ever since! Sweet spinach salad’s are the bomb!

^That rice. DAMN it was so healthy-delicious! and that steak! MMMM. Was on the special, about $17 for that plate. Found a hair on my asparagus though! To compensate, they gave us one free cake slice… (see bottom)

^ Didn’t want cake leh… but family was like, “WE ON VACATION” blah blah blah, so we ordered two cakes, one was an apple pie-type cake, the other was a cookie-dough-type cake. Both were very delicious, but heavy, can’t imagine eating one whole on my own!

The next morning, we ate at the complimentary breakfast buffet! All Embassy Suite hotels offer this, and I think it’s a great deal!

^The breakfast buffet counter. Ehh not much detail meh, oh well.

^omg!! I MUST share!! Okay, so there was this WAFFLE MAKING MACHINE!!! You can make your own waffles!! I was so excited, and the guy there to help you was so nice too! Wish they had whipped cream for the waffles though…

^They make you custom omelets , and I had this delicious danish. It was sweet, I has an extreme sweettooth! :3

Here’s some sight seeing shots!

We went to “The Point” …. apparently it’s supposed to be mad beautiful but we didn’t see anything that beautiful… I think we missed it or something.

^…normal looking right?

 

^Proof that I visited the Point.

 

^I personally thought this was much more beautiful! Look at the lights reflecting in the lake!! Love! I love nighttime cities and how they reflect and whatnot in the dark! It’s so beautiful! When we land in Toronto coming back from Japan in the nighttime, BOY is it beautiful because of all the lights! I don’t give a shit about “light pollution” activists and what not… It’s beautiful okay!

We also visited The Duquesne Incline, a historic landmark in Pittsburgh.

It is basically a little incline that takes you from the top to bottom or vice versa on this hill…

 

 

^Going down the incline…

^Me taking a picture with the building at the bottom of the incline.

 

^Me, with Pittsburgh in the background! damn artsy yes??

 

 

^Going back up the incline! A round trip up and down the famous incline is about $5.00 per person! An interesting experience!

 

^Le creepy house/restaurant next door to the incline… LOOK INSIDE!! DOESN’T IT LOOK LIKE AN ABANDONED PLACE THAT’S HAUNTED?!?!?

We then went to the place my father wanted to go to the most…

THE PITTSBURGH SCIENCE CENTRE. I KID YOU NOT.

Some random pics… at the science centre…

btw my dad was so cute there! He was the only one running around like a little kid, observing every little thing, playing with every little gizmo available XD According to him, he’s never been to a science center before, and when he was a kid nobody ever took him, so he was super excited haha! So kawaii father! LOL

 

^A miniature train thing that showed Pittsburgh throughout all four seasons!! It was super cool!!

 

^Me, camwhoring with the robot behind me!! OMG one day robots will take over the world?!?!

That’s about it!! Now for some last minute redeeming camwhore pics that you DON’T wanna see!!

^Me !!… going up the incline. I look kawaii in this? Or not.

^Got photobombed by my little sister, Leesah.

 

^The Mommy and I ❤

 

^I looked so nice that day, wish Mr. Leo was there to see 😦

Speaking of Mr. Leo… I actually got him something in the States!!… *drumroll pleasee!*

SO CUTE RIGHT ??

It was green (Mr. Leo’s fav colour), liked spicy good (just like Mr. Leo) AND was born in August (Mr. Leo also!! altho not same date, but month the samee!!).

I think Mr. Leo loved it (^__^)

ANYWAY! Thanks for reading this mad-long blogpost!! PLEASE comment and follow my blog! I appreciate each and every single follow and comment, reply to ALL my comments!

Valentines Day, the Philosophy Bunny and Family Day

25 Feb

SO! Semester 2 in school has officially started like a month ago (ok la, like first week of February… haven’t blogged in FOREVER! My apologies ;__; )

So anyway, this semester one of my subjects is PHILOSOPHY and let me just say, that class is INTERESTING. Two days in a row, my teacher cracked a real egg in class, to show one of the theories stating that, since one has to go half-way before going full-way, and you have to go half-way infinity number of times, technically it is impossible to move… and yet an egg will still fall and crack if you throw it.

^I took that from my seat 🙂 I’m serious, twice, and he did the same with his other classes, so like… 4 eggs gone to waste for PHILOSOPHY?? XD

^Up-close Eggster McEggsicle’s untimely demise.

Speaking of untimely deaths, this is not the only tragedy that has occurred in the philosophy classroom. Here’s the story of the Philosophy Mascot: Une Bunny

Day 1:

^That was the beginning of the Bunny. I found it on my desk randomly one morning, and got VERY excited. I asked my teacher about it, saying I love bunnies. He said “I drew that, knowing your love of bunnies” (tbh I feel like he may be trolling me, what do you think??) but yeah. I was extremely happy and tweeted about it even!

Day 2 and 3:

^THE BUNNY EVOLVED!! On day 2, I found that it had been changed. According to my teacher, it supports the theory that nothing is ever the same, and everything is in constant change. However, the bunny remained the same for day 3.

^To show my support for Bunster McBunion, I wore my Usamimi (ウさ耳)Bunny ears to school too! Met one of Mr. Leo’s friends that day though meow -.- Apparently I looked quite fob that day T_T fml fml fml

 Must impress Mr. Leo friends meow :/

 

Anywho, after the weekend, Mr. Bunny had been erased. In fact, it was questionable whether he was even there in the first place at all. My friend Illy and I had a mini-funeral for the beloved “Philosophy Mascot” that was, Bunnister Bunbun as we mourned. We then proceeded to draw 2 cats as replacements, but the next day both were erased from existence as well.

I was sad.

But then valentines day came! 😀

Mr. Leo and I weren’t quite planning anything — I didn’t expect anything from him, I was fine with that. I bought him some meiji strawberry chocolate, the apolo kind! Extra strawberry too!

Also bought him some cinnamon candy hearts that I was hoping we could eat together 🙂

Then I wrote him a card and a poem 🙂 I incorporated pokemon into it!! XD I think he liked it ^^ He’s my Nidorino and I’m his Nidorina 🙂 But he loves Charmander the best still! haha 🙂

I would share the poem but I feel like it might be quite private. Should have taken a pic of the little package I gave him but forgot — oh wells. Anywho, I was not expecting anything for V-day, since he said he wouldn’t really do anything. I was quite wrong!!

In my locker when I opened it for lunch, I found cookies and cream chocolate hershey kisses, a chocolate rose and a stuffed rose!! I was so surprised and happy!! As soon as I saw him I gave him the biggest hug ever!! 🙂 ❤

^All of them together on my bed 😀

That night, we also spent time together too ^^ I went over to his place for a bit, and we slept. Then we went to go eat some viet 🙂 Ate so much that night, felt so fat but felt happy anyway 🙂 Thanks for Valentines day Baby!

And then there were some random events in the middle not quite worth mentioning on my blog…

And then came FAMILY DAY! A national (I think??) holiday, where everybody gets a day off (well not everybody, but almost) so that they can spend time with their families! (Good idea right?? People need more quality family time…) The day before there was some family drama, so we could not to Yum cha as I had wished; instead we went for a Greek dinner for family night 🙂 Went to Mr. Greeks! So good, in fact I want to take Mr. Leo there one day.

I ordered myself an Original Souvlaki with chicken. As well we had some bread and calamari for appetizers! And we ordered an alcoholic beverage 😉

^Pretty picture of initial bread basket that came. Nom nom nommed that garlic bread.

^They kept giving us more and more bread baskets, each time with more bread and pita haha! They think we’re fatasses?? 😀

^Calamari 😀 Basically deep fried squid with the sauce?? It’s sooo good! I know it’s mad fattening but I just love it! Tasty.

^My dad trolling in the background. If you look closely, you can see it’s a picture of a cute little car decoration that I sent him LOL This drink, I don’t remember what it was called, but I do remember how delicious I thought it was! Mad love. Ever since my drink at Niagara, I love these sweet tasting alcoholic beverages. Mr. Leo can I get drunk with you one day please? o: Don’t wanna get drunk without him or someone I trust LOL Might do stupid things -.- Maybe I’m one of those stupid drunks fml.

^My Souvlaki ! I love fries okay, guilty pleasure…. and I LOVE Greek salad!! It’s one of my faves 🙂

After we stuffed ourselves with Greek delight, we went to walk it off at a Korean supermarket 🙂

I found some interesting things I’d like to share…

*cough*

^So, I don’t know if you guys know what “Natto” is, but it’s basically a food product made of fermented soybeans. I love it, but this particular one disturbed me… If you can’t read it let me just say, the label says 「ぶっかけ」… Like, Bukkake. The food company named their Natto “Bukkake” …. if you don’t know what it means, please google it. DISCLAIMER: Not my fault if you are disgusted with search results. Yeah… I was like

Then, we bumped into a dumpling add in the supermarket…

HAHAHAHA!! Please tell me you find his face funny also!! The longer you look at it the more you laugh okay!! He should totally be a meme, his face is tooo meme-worthy mrow.

Okay! Done my interesting blogging for now! haha 🙂 Now just time for my random kamho pics that you don’t wanna see…

^Looks quite nice right?

^Me, trying to be sophisticated and sexy….failed orz

Thanks for reading my blog! Follow and comment! I appreciate each and every view I get ❤ 🙂

Takara House Japanese Cuisine 物語

3 Feb

Hellllooo! 🙂 Today’s post is going to be about a Japanese eating place, cuisine, restaurant, all you can eatery, whatever you’d prefer to call such a place of foodery.

The title has 「物語」in it…because it means “Story” LOL Monogatari = story in Japanese 🙂 Basically the story of us going to takara house to eat :3 mrow

So Mr. Leo and I decided to go on a lunch date at this Japanese all you can eat place. Yes, I know. “Kat, you’re on a diet but you’re eating buffet?? HORRIBLE EXAMPLE!” I know!! But le bf has a way of talking me into anything. Literally, anything (._.) nobody else can talk me into a buffet but him. He should feel special.

^Look at him feeling all special and stuff. -.- Lucky guy don’t know how lucky. Only one can make me eat with a smile on my face mrow LOL miracle worker much? :S

^Me, no make-up face and lion hair after exams mrow. Why Mr. Leo can look so pretty even tho just done exams??

Anyhow, we decided to go with the all you can eat $10.99+tax which includes anything on the lunch menu except the sashimi. I thought this was pretty decent for an all you can eat, considering it had everything. To be quite honest, in respects to the sashimi-less issue, just order the sushi version of it and leave the rice! I know, I know not so economical but still!

Here’s a bad picture of the menu. (Mr. Leo and I not used to restaurant blogging okay! what? We’ll get better if I start loosing weight LOL)

^Whatever, zoom if you really want to know everything on the menu! Haha it’s basically a typical Japanese menu with all the different rolls and whatnots. It also includes some “kitchen” items which are like tempura, fried stuff and meats.

^Sneaky sneaky shot I took of man working in background. I could work for the FBI with my creeper skills mrow

^Another little iphone pic of the places interior ^^ Quite nice, although the lanterns words don’t quite match the restaurant (they say Ramen, but no ramen to be found on menu). Still, for a place that offers good, affordable food the atmosphere is nice. Kind of reminds me of a shady samurai sketch yakuza meetup place, actually. Except for the big windows that let everybody peer in, of course.

^Table set up. I must say, their cutlery is not half bad 🙂

^A G, even at a Japanese restaurant mrow. He’s uhm… a boss, allday erryday. LOL

So we ordered, waited patiently for the food to arrive.

One thing about this place, while the female waitress is friendly…I can’t say the same for the male waiter. He was kind of very…unapproachable. Or..just something about him is kind of unfriendly. Perhaps it’s the fact that he NEVER CRACKS A SMILE and GIVES OFF THE AIR THAT HE HATES HIS JOB. Which to me is not acceptable in the consumer-targeted industry.

Eventually, the nice waitress brought out the food 🙂 Here’s some pics of our fatassery!

^Spicy Handroll that we ordered anyhow 🙂 I liked, but kind of tasted like shredded crab meat… 6/10?

^Okay, photos from Mr. Leo’s iphone so much heavier than pics from my itouch… HOW COME? WHAT IS THIS BLASPHEMY ?? Anywho, those are some rolls 🙂 I swear, only places outside of Japan have these amazing delicacies mrow ❤ The one covered in yellow was like 5/10 had only greens. Eel roll was goooddd 8/10. One covered with salmon tasttyyyy! 9/10 wtf

^I believe that is the Sakura roll (7/10) , Unagi sushi (7/10) and Dragon roll (8/10)? 🙂

^Ton Katsu 🙂 Mr. Leo likes apparently. I actually like too, but very fattening la. I give it a 7.5/10 though, because my mommy makes it better mrow. #japaneseproblems

^Some tempura. 7/10, shrimp very thin as my mother pointed out. Not bad though for a buffet.

^Chicken Teriyaki and Eel handroll. I actually liked the chicken teriyaki, not too heavy and gross (8/10). The eel hand roll was actually quite nice, good combination with avocado and all! (8/10).

Doesn’t seem like much from the photos, but we we’re quite full after that. My parents actually came joined us afterwards, so then we had to eat a bit some more, but not much different from what we oredi ordered.

In all, I think it’s quite nice to eat here. The food is definitely not bad, the service is okay and summore it’s affordable.

Pros:

-Affordable
– Tasty
-Rolls are not filled with rice like some other places
-They have nice azuki bean ice cream
-Wide variety to choose from

Cons:

-Service sometimes on the slower side
-The tea is sometimes lukewarm and faded, making it taste quite a la shitty
-Waiter doesn’t smile
-Claimed to open at 11, had to wait until 11:15 or something to enter. While it’s not a big deal it is important for eateries to adhere to their claimed opening times.

Overall: 8/10

I do recommend this place, I believe the variety of foods offered is great for the price, and the food is quite tasty. Perfect for students on a low budget who still want to fill themselves (although I don’t recommend ANYBODY to eat here daily…that’s just unhealthy). The pros outweigh the unimportant cons, as you can probably tell from the list above.  I would definitely want to go again (provided it’s some special occasion and Mr. Leo somehow convinces me) and think it’s quite a nice place.

Address: 

50 Bur Oak Ave
Unit 6
Markham, ON L6C 0A2

I feel like making my readers HUNGRY

24 Nov

Hi guys 🙂

So I was looking through my camera pics, and realized something:

I didn’t really post that many Japan Food pictures. NOW THAT’S A SHAME. And so I decided to dedicate an entire post to the food I had in Japan, because it’s just so damn amazing.

Like, no word of lie when I get back from Japan I lose some weight because I stop eating. Why? It takes me awhile to get used to the food here again (even the convenience store food is 100x better than the food here, no offense).

So let the food picture rampage begin! 😀

^That is the beautiful Gindako Takoyaki. I miss it 😦 It’s do damn amazing. (Octopus Balls. Like, there are pieces of octopus in these balls of like… batter. It’s delicious okay)

^This is obviously an inferior hamburger to the one from Meat Yazawa (read more about it here, it will make you drool I promise) https://chocolatenyanko.wordpress.com/2011/07/21/meat-yazawa-is-delicious/  However, it was delicious nonetheless and a fraction of the price. I can’t quite remember where, but I know it is a small store in Shinjuku and basically it was 5 bucks (which is super cheap for a lunch in tokyo). It came with this cheese/sauce covered hamburger, bean sprouts and rice 🙂 Tasty.

^Yes ladies and gentleman, that is indeed a watermelon. Shaped in a triangular form. LOL I love it too, I just had to snap a shot.

^You may be asking yourself dear reader, “what the hell is in her mouth?” well, that my friends is called a tamago ice cream. (egg ice cream, but only ’cause it’s shaped like an egg). However, my mother just calls it a boob ice cream LOL because you have to suck it like… okay nevermind lets move on.

^Cutest bear ever from Mister Donuts 🙂 It’s so amazingly delicious too.. man I really want to move to Japan again.

^Oh….uhm…awkward. This is food my sister and I put together when we stayed over at my grandfather’s house LOL. Okay sorry if that killed your appetite FOL we tried our best :’)

^This is from a restaurant inside Shinagawa Prince Hotel 🙂 I actually love this place to bits because it’s just so amazing and the meat is so delicious it melts in your mouth. And plus you get as much refill of cabbage as you want (perfect for me, the human rabbit).

^Gyoza! 🙂 I actually love this. My grandmother took us to this random place she found in Togoshi Ginza where she does her cheapass grocery shopping. My grandmother is a… G 🙂  No. Like…actually (._.) Nobody wants to mess with her. Actually. LOL Anyway, the Gyoza is amazing, cheap and just tastes like heaven.

^Okay guys, TRY AND TELL ME this isn’t cute. TRY. This is why I want to move to Japan, the land of cutest things. Okay so anyway, the Japanese call “Baskin Robins” “Thirty one”. Actually. And their flavours are…. *superior* in ways I can’t explain (.___.) nghhhhhhh. * frustration at own country max*

I can’t remember what this was called. I think Sparkling champagne or Popping something. It basically pops in your mouth and makes you have like a mouth orgasm or something 😛

^You may be wondering little pumpkins, what is this? Let me tell you. It is the creation of some beautiful party in your mouth with classy aftertaste that my grandfather bought for us in the hotel bakery where we always meet him. My grandfather, I will have you know has the most refined taste buds a man can have. Me on the other hand… I love convenience store cream puffs just the same. FML I need to be more high maintenance don’t I? Men love expensive high maintenance chicks -.-

^DAMN RIGHT I DRINK BEER LIKE A HARDCORE OLD JAPANESE SALARY MAN #YEYE ignore the fact please, that it is non-alcoholic beer, and it wasn’t even mine, it was my grandfathers. 

^that my friends is Katsudon. Need I explain? It’s delicious.

^Uhm….to be honest I can’t remember quite what this was. I ordered it though, and it was the healthiest option and it tasted good.

^Some clam rice thing. It was okay.

^This tastes amazing 🙂 Green tea ice cream with mochi and anko beneath it!

^Ahhhh aren’t you envious?

^I’m even jealous. Let me go to Japan. Now. Everytime I look through my Japan pictures it makes me want to go back even more ;___; Somebody take me right nowwww!

 

Thanks for reading! 🙂 I love all comments! And I want YOU to follow my blog 🙂

Meat Yazawa is Delicious!

21 Jul

Yesterday, we decided we would go out and eat. Where? our favourite hamburger steak place 🙂

OHOH! before my meat yazawa rave, lemmie tell you about some stuff that happened that day. *ehem*

So we went to a department store (Ito Yokado) before we went to eat (spent about 3 or 4 hours there). While we were there, we sat down in the foodcourt/cafe place to eat. When there, a girl forgot her umbrella and my sister went to return it to her (trust me tho, my sister is not nice….wtf). Then! after that my sister accidentally left her ipod on the bench and left. Thank god tho, some man delivered the ipod to the lost and found place and she was able to retrieve it! DOES ANYBODY ELSE SENSE KARMA?!?!?! 🙂

Oh! Saw a Tohoshinki ad. while waiting for my sister:

They’re like…advertising for some summer gift sets saying that if you buy them you have a chance to win some DBSK / Tohoshinki goods. Not worth it though, wtf. Each gift set like, 30-50 USD!!! meh XD

OK!

onto real post!!! So yesterday I ate at ミート矢澤 (Meat Yazawa) !!

Here is the link to their site! 🙂 Check out their menus and stuff, and try it out if you’re in Japan!

^The location I went to is the Gotanda location! Been loving this place since last year when my grandparents (who btw, usually dislike oily hamburger steaks) introduced the place to us!!!

Ok, when it comes to hamburger-steaks, I only expect places to taste as good as my mommy’s hamburger steaks…

but this place!!! the hamburgersteak is just… JUICY beyond belief!!! and their original sauce is not too heavy…just right! And their potato wedges!!! Ohhhhhhhmi-orgasm!! literally. #orgasmface (w.e that looks like wtf)

Soo here’s the part of the menu we ordered from:

oh wtf. just realize can see this in nice high-def on their site…

http://www.kuroge-wagyu.com/my/dinner.html

tell me that doesnt look delicious?!?!?!
So the one we ordered is the bottom one, (top one is a heavier type sauce) 200grams each. Which is about 1400yen (add tax).

One of their menus are so cute! (theres like 3 on the table)

Tells you how good it tastes with an egg on top, tells you how to eat, and shows various toppings you can have!! 😀

How to eat:
1)

^basically saying, that this is how they recommend eating it: cutting off a chunk and dipping it into the sauce.

2)
^they said this is another way u can eat it…by just simply pouring the sauce on the steakhamburger…  #isntitobvious?

3)
^ says u can add all kinda toppings

actually wtf. I dont know why I shared this with you guys anymore… :S  it kinda just states the obvious wtf!! ok. sorry if wasted ure time wtf.

BUT HAVE TO ADMIT!! SUPER CUTE MENU RIGHT?? 😀

teehee

^what a nice place to eat in! the atmosphere is awesome, staff is super nice wtf :S

offered wet towels to wipe our hands even after we’re done eating!! this isn’t normal guys!!! o:

Ok. i know you’ve been waiting for meal pic!! 😀

OMGGG!!! IT WAS SO DELICIOUS. My camera does absolutely no justice to this meal.. D: Someone get me a new camera LOL. jk, need to save up for one orz

Finish off with me pic. don’t turn it rightside up! if u do its ugly 😦
