Getaway ....

It's almost year end already and this is the time where most of the folks will wind down by clearing leaves from work and started travelling for their vacation, whether near or far. I also planning to go somewhere but due to that I didn't plan earlier, I may have to pay more for my trip. I have also yet to decide on my vacation though I got some brochures back but at least, will go somewhere, whether it's local or nearby overseas. I don't mind going for a cruise again as I went for one last year but my family declines it, probably they find it to be boring. The kids would love to go for some theme parks and doesn't really care whether it's local like Legoland, Kidzania, Hello Kitty town and etc. As for me, if possible, I like to getaway to another country to see around.

Anyway, it's always good to take a longer break during this time to wind down from work, and going to places we never been to before can be very therapeutic and relaxing. Most of my colleagues already book their tours. Well, at least, it's some good rewards for ourselves after a year of work. Go ahead, folks, reward yourselves with a good vacation, whether its nearby or far.

Meanwhile, after a good workout tonight, I realised my favourite Japanese restaurant has a new menu. Thus, I tried something new tonight. I ordered a Shogayaki Shiro Bento, which consist of fried Dory fish, tempura, salmon sashimi, chawanmushi, miso soup and a bowl of rice. And, the servings was a lot !!

Fried Dory Fish and it's being kept warm by a mini electrical stove.

Tempura 

Salmon Sashimi

My favourite chawanmushi
I was really full especially the four pieces dory fish which can be a serving for two person. And, there goes my workout .... :P

  15. There's nothing like some holiday after a stressful year of working/studying - or that's what I believe in. =) But yes, Chris, you should really plan a trip to Japan since you're a big fan of Japanese food and relax your mind at the same time. =D

    I heard that their fish is super duper fresh as well. *winks*

  16. The fried dory looks tempting. Yum yum.

    Yeah. Treat your family to a nice getaway. Hub and I also think the same. No need go anywhere far for a family vacation. As long everyone is together that is matter.
