Enough of all the woes on 31st.
The gastric pain was brought into the new year from 31st.
Stomach isn't very good today as well.
Uncle told me to take good care as he said something like.. "I'm the breadwinner in the family."
Because he said usually the breadwinner is a male, but this time... it's gonna be a female.
Anyway, on the 31st..
We had dinner at...
It's one of the 'normal' grade restaurant.
(The 'lower' grade restaurants are: Sakae Sushi, Ichiban Sushi (and boshi branches), Sushi Tei, etc etc..)
It's been a long time I last entered a normal grade Japanese restaurant since the last time dad brought us when I was younger.
This is the place where you can see pure japanese dine in there.
It was still OK, just that there's a pretty lack of items in the menu.
Food is ok, we didn't order any sashimi.
Ate Ramen instead..
Mom ate the same as me. Miso Ramen.
and sis ate Tonkuchi (i think so?) Ramen
Had our chawanmushi as usual.
The difference between 'normal grade' chawan and 'low grade' chawan is... the normal grade ones are much more concentrated.
The low grade ones are more watery (lesser egg) - hence cheaper.
Total Damage: S$66+
After that, we head down to isetan department store.
Saw this baby seat for 3 months old baby and above.
We tried to put kimi down..
I think she likes it. Even read the box somemore. LOL.
And we can't stop laughing at her cuteness.
Keep on taking photos of her until she pek cek.
Yah lah, she's the boss. LOL.
"Let me check what is this about one more time...!"
Then we went to see burberry baby clothes. omg, damn nice!
but damn exp! $200+ for a skirt! (after 60% less i think)
Lol, going to 4 months in 10 days time!
(NOTE: DID YOU SEE THE 2 MAN BEHIND? FEELING DAMN GAY! Reminds me of two people I know... Keekkekekee!)
After that, went Isetan supermarket first to get japanese ricecakes & bottle of sakae.
Then.. went back home..
Had our family tradition.What is our family tradition?
1) Do our religion prayers before 12midnight till after 12midnight - got to wear new clothes, offer Japanese rice cakes and 2 bottles of sakae to the Gohonzon
(it means the object of worship).
2) Set our new year resolutions.
3) Eat Sashimi (or with sakae for those who likes it) after that.
Lol, pretty Japanese tradition..
Actually I don't know who set (3) in the tradition de.
I think should be my dad.
It becomes a traditional routine on the first hour of 1st January, probably 10 years ago or more?
This year, we don't have variety.
ALL SOLD OUT. Argh!
We only bought Salmon Sashimi (yuck, so sick of it)
and I forgot this fish.. Something Akami.
It's not maguro.. Should be some parts of the tuna i think? Texture is different.
It comes with the whole piece. For the first time in my life, I slice a piece of sashimi myself.
I know it's not skillful, knife wasn't the sashimi knife which has to be terribly SHARP. (one slide, off it goes)
But still, edible and not too bad... Hehehe..
01 Jan 2009
Went to Memorial Chapel (@ Kovan) to visit my grandpa.
Miscalculated the anniversary. It should be 7 years. I forgot it's 2009 now! Lol!
Flowers for him.. ;)
Went to AMK hub after that.
Then went to Hougang Police post. Mom went to report her lost of employee card.
Then went home, gastric pain again.
Went to have a 2 hours nap.
Then ate dinner.
ZZZ whats up later? ;)
I hope baby did enjoy his night with the other 2 gays (LOL) at Unker's house.
And his soccer session today with his khakis.
