Cha Dango 京の茶だんご | Japan

Dango is a Japanese dumpling made from mochiko, rice flour. There are many varieties of dango in Japan and normally three to four dango are often served on a skewer. The texture of the dango is very similar to chinese glutinous flour ball (tang yuan), especially the plain dango, not only the texture, the taste is almost close to tang yuan. On this post, I would like to share on the Cha Dango from Kyoto, Japan 京の茶だんご. It is a green tea flavour dango where only sells in Kyoto area. I have never see this brand of dango in Tokyo.

 

Double Electric Breast Pump | Lacte Duet

I wish to share something about my electric breast pump that has been used for almost a year. I bought this breast pump when my baby was about 4 months old, after used Medela Swing for about 2-3 months. Medela Swing is single pump, which took me about 1 hour to clear both sides, Imagine if you need 2 to 3 sessions per day during working hour, how much time you left to do your work? And it was second hand pump get from my sis in law, I am not sure it was due to old pump or what, the Medela Swing can't really empty my breast. Till one day when I was frustrated, I decided to invest on new pump. With some survey, I decided to get in this Lacte Duet Double Electric Breast Pump. It was RM399 the time I bought, I told myself if I able to feed baby with my breast milk until she is one year old, I will only need around RM50 per month (start count from 5 months old), and all of us knew breast milk is much safer and healthier compare to formula. Autumnz milk storage bag to store my milk With this new pump, I managed to empty my breast, hence I get more milk. This pump comes with double motor where user can adjust both sides with different power level. With this feature, in case of one motor break down , you can still use another side. It is also more quiet compare with M.Swing and some other top brand model. Another thing that I like about this pump is you can use it with power bank, it is especially helpful where you can pump at anywhere even though without power supply. My breast pump bag with two compartments - FAME Breastpump Knapsack/Backpack (L) As the original bottles that came with the set have wider opening, the pump also came with converter where you can pump directly into your Bumblebee/Autumnz or whatever bottles that has smaller opening. It is convenient as you do not need to wash extra bottle after pump, just pump inside your storage bottles. The only thing that I am not happy with this pump is it contains many parts and you will need more time in washing the parts. I have this in my mind: "I will get in Freemie to use with this pump for my next baby", as I feel Freemie is easier to wash, and yes, this pump can use with Freemie. Besides this I would say it is a good pump. To make my pumping more comfortable, I use it with handsfree bra, it is much more convenient and can reduce shoulder pain as you no need to bend your head down by always looking at your bottles. With handsfree bra, you can work while pumping as your hands will be free at the time you pump. My day will be full of joy and satisfaction when I get this amount in one pumping session! I wish all mothers happy pumping and enjoy your breast feeeding journey!

 

Instant Ramen Museum | Osaka, Japan

Instant Ramen Museum is located at Ikeda-shi, Osaka. You can experience making your own cup noodle here. If you would like to make noodle from sratch, here is the place for you too. Besides, the history of the chicken ramen development, which is the world’s first instant ramen, and the changes in many products over the years can be found here too. Entrance is free unless you want to buy cup noodle or attend the making noodle class. I visited this museum to make my cup noodle. After seeing through the ramen history and development process, I bought two empty cups from vending machine inside the museum, 300 yen per cup. Then I was arranged to sit at "art class corner" to draw and decorate my cup. After finished, I proceed to collect my ramen and choose the ingredients I like. You can choose 4 out of 10 ingredients. Then you can choose your soup base before proceed to final packing. It is fun to make your own cup noodle, I did not join the making noodle class as it is reservation at earlier time. Overall, it was a fun experience here and I will enjoy my cup noodle with Camus after return to Penang.

 

Ke Ren Lai Restaurant | Gurney, Penang

After 3 years, I am now back to Japan again. This time will stay here for only 3 weeks, it is good for me to enjoy the food here. I miss the food in Japan, from sandwich to bread to cake to dessert to ramen to bento to coffee to izakaya food to sashimi to ... many more. Opsss...this post is not about Japanese food yet. Let's back to my last dinner before I came to Japan.

Last Friday, we had lunch there for the third times. We arrived there earlier to avoid disappointment as that day sells Nasi Lemak. According to the boss, their nasi lemak start at 12pm and selling very fast. You can pre-order by phone or please arrive earlier.

You will see "Nasi Lemak" labeling plate put on all tables if that day sells nasi lemak, RM5 per plate. It came with 2 small prawns, half egg, balacan fried chicken, fried big ikan bilis and coconut rice. Balacan chicken is very delicious, while fried ikan bilis tasted sweet, it was very tasty too.

For fried "tang hun", it was really nice too. Fried onion was sprinkle on top and hence bring more fragrance to the "tang hun". The "tang hun" do not stick together, and we believed that's the skill of chef, as to fry a delicious "tang hun" is not an easy task! This plate costs RM5.50.

Hi Sharon, sad to hear that you met this kind of service. I understand your feeling as I also hate people treat me like this. But during the time we visited, they served us ok. Hopefully their service can improve and treat everyone the same. :cheer:

I know it is acceptable to be served a little bit late as there's so much customers. But we had already ask for menu, but the service staff is ignoring us. Not only this, they serve those who comes later, they take order from them but we come earlier not even get our menu. One of the service staff saw us walk away he didn't even ask but ask another new couple to sit at our table. So is it meaning that you have plenty of customers even lost one or two also never mind? what kind of service is this?
