BIG Lobster at Red Lobster | Odaiba, Japan

Last few weekend, I had a trip to Odaiba with my colleagues. That was the fourth time I visited to Odaiba, a man made island in Tokyo. It is one of the popular tourist spots in Japan, famous with shopping and entertainment district. Rainbow Bridge, Statue of Liberty, Aqua City and the Palette Town Ferris Wheel are few famous spots in Odaiba. Of course that are not the all in Odaiba. While we walk around Aqua City, we found a restaurant that is serving lobster. Looking at the display set, it was so tempting. With a reasonable price of the set, we decided to give it a try.

 

Onigiri Station | Suntech Bayan Baru, Penang

There is a new Japanese food restaurant open at Suntech Bayan Baru, Onigiri Station. Actually it is not newly open but yesterday was our first try there. We park our car at Sunshine Market and walk to the restaurant. Before we arrived at Onigiri Station, my brain already trigger me back to Japan. The fragrance from the restaurant was very similar to restaurants in Japan. This restaurant is quite small and everything is self service. I ordered a set of salmon don, which came with miso soup and green tea ice cream. Free flow of barley tea and RO water are available too.

 

Cosway Bread Maker Machine

This is a new bread maker that I bought some times ago. After the first unit of bread maker that I bought from Cosway, this is the 2nd unit that I bought from there. It is mom's birthday present. The new bread maker comes with more functions compare to the first one, and it can make bigger loaf. The additional functions that attract me are "bake cake", "make jam", "bake only". I am not sure how delicious the cake is if you bake with bread maker. Well, I will try it! The "bake only" function is good where you can let the machine prepare the dough at first, and then remove the dough from machine and roll it to small ball (add some filling too), then put back to the machine for "bake only", so you do not need to always make a "Gardenia" or "High 5" bread, and it does not required oven.

 

Plain Cheesecake | Baked with Rice Cooker

Cake can be baked in several ways, by using an oven which is the most common way. I knew that cake can be steamed with gas as well. But have you ever tried to bake a cake with rice cooker? Basically I do not hear people in our country bake with rice cooker, and I was surprised to see a book that introduces how to bake a cake with rice cooker. Without further consideration, I bought the book.

181_5"We Share What We Have.....", this is a slogan of 181 Open House, a coffee house located at Juru, Penang. The coffee house open in July 2012 and operate by a Chinese couple of husband and wife. It was renovated from bungalo type double story old house at Juru Village, and "181" is plat number of their house.

Before that, we have passed by the coffee house for many times, but could not get a chance to dine in there. Last weekend, we managed to visit them and had our lunch there.

181

The coffee house is fully decorated by the owners, with mural painting, owner's photography, books for reading, chairs made by newspaper, coca-cola cans collection, coffee makers/cups collection and others. We believed most of the things are recycled, even coffee cups are all different in "design". They also made efford to plant some plantation outside the house, giving a more comfortable environment to their customers. Other than decorations, music also plays an important role in bringing out the relaxing environment.

For food, they have different menu for lunch daily. Besides, they also serve coffee and cakes too. Cheesecakes are homemade by the wife. Since it was lunch time, we ordered one Chicken Teriyaki and one Chinese Herbal Chicken Soup. Both are served with vegetable and egg. When the foods are served, the owner remind us that no MSG was added, so we can finish up the all the dishes including soup without worry.

The herbal soup cames with drumstick, we like it as it tasted like mother's home cook soup, healthy and delicious.

As for Chicken Teriyaki, it tasted not bad too but I would prefer chicken with bone. I believed for many people, eating chicken or fish without bone is easier but for me, chicken without bone is like missing something on it.

We truly feel the efford made by both the owners to bring out relax and comfortable environment to their customers. We as customer and food blogger, sincerely wish their coffee house business is booming. We do wish to return for their cheese cake and coffee in near future!
