Japan Trip 2017: Kanazawa Sushi Dinner at Sushi Maimon

Food, Travel

I am skipping couple of days because I didn’t have the inspiration to look around for photos to post on the blog. Hehe.

Anyway – this post is for the Day 3 in which was a Sunday and we just arrived to Kanazawa from Osaka. After checked in to the hotel, we scour through TripAdvisor in search for the some food. Obviously Sushi Maimon came up top – but I wasn’t very sure if it will be any better from Endo Sushi.

To be honest – the sushi was decent to any Malaysian standards, but putting next to Endo – this taste like crap. And for the price that we paid – it’s really expensive!

Here are some of the pictures from the makan session.

Burgers and Lobsters

Food, Fun Posts

Yesterday – after driving back from Johor Bahru (reached home at 6am) – I decided to drive out up to Genting Highlands for dinner. The reason why I went up is because i saw a post from a friend that he drove up to Genting Highlands with his new car!

To be honest – what I was interested on was to drive in a chilly weather – and of course the fog. Something stupid but I guess its fun to do a random thing πŸ™‚

Once I was up there… πŸ™‚ I went to Burger and Lobsters.. this is the same one as the one in London. The price is OK – comparatively its about the same as Pince and Pints.

The original lobster roll is shown below. Not bad at all.

Its quite sizeable portion to be honest. Definitely will comeback again (if i have the money of course!).

Chicken@Pasar Chow Kit

Food, Photography

Chicken is the most popular protein in the typical Malaysian diet. Almost every Malaysian will consume chicken at least once every week. I myself – would prefer chicken over beef due to its cost and health benefits.

There are generally two ways to buy chicken:

  • Supermarket – where the chickens are from large suppliers such as Ayamas and Ayam A1. Chicken are bred and processed centrally.
  • Market or pasar – where the chickens are slaughtered in the market and sold later part of the day.

There are also instances where the chickens in the market are supplied by corporations. Chicken in Malaysia generally are halal. I have been to many markets(pasar) in Malaysia and have not seen non-halal chicken.

The following photos are taken during my recent visit to Pasar Chow Kit. As mentioned in the earlier post, my visit was not planned. When I was young, my mum will bring me to this market almost on a weekly basis. I was not a fan of the market as it was dirty back then. The floor is wet and filled with holes. I don’t remember having to come back with clean feet as I would stepped into the holes and get my feet dirty.

The market itself is divided into many sections. On Saturday I went to the wet section. Reason being is that I parked my car in Kampung Baru and walked over to the market. The nearest entrance was the wet section.

The following photos are from the market itself. I can safely say that most of the workers there are friendly. There has not been any instance where the workers would hide or act negatively towards me. In fact they will invite me to come inside and take photos. As it was pretty early and I was still sleepy, I spent very little time here. I would love to come back again to shoot here.

The photo below shows the worker preparing the chicken for sale. The chicken that has been slaughtered will be cleaned here. I did not catch how they process the chicken from the point of slaughter to clean up. I have seen it before in Pudu Market though/

Egg Muffins


It has been a long while since I last posted on my blog. Partly because I was busy renovating my apartment. That itself will be a post on its own. Since I was doing major replacement of furnitures and electrical equipment, I decided to changed my oven. The new oven that I have is capable of doing steam cooking and a combination of it. 

This morning I woke up with an inspiration to eat healthy. Low Carb and High Fat. Inspired by a friend of mine who did that and lost considerable amount of weight. So.. First thing came to my mind, how to I make something that:

  • Easy to carry around
  • Can be cooked in advance 
  • Pure protein

So – egg muffins came to mind. Here are the ingredients:

  • Minced meat – 200 grams
  • Sausage – 2 sticks
  • 1 onion
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • Liquid smoke
  • Peas
  • Lea Perrins 
  • Shredded Monterey Jack 
  • Shredded cheddar
  • 8 eggs

First step is to cook the meat together with garlic and onion. Then add the cut sausage and peas. 

In a muffin pan, coat with oil. First layer the pan with cheese. Then add the cooked meat. Then add the beaten eggs. Then add more cheese. Then bake for 15 mins.
