One of those weekends

This is what we normally do at weekends:

1. Food Hunting
after suffering for my bad cooking and instant food in weekdays, weekend is the right time for us to enjoy food. Usually i have certain craving for each week, so we always have destination =P When i craved for japanese ramen, we would usually go to orenchi or santouka. I personaly like orenchi better. Yet, most of the time we go to santouka instead ... maybe because it's nearer.

Santouka is one of the two food stall inside Mitsuwa department store. It is usually very crowded during lunch and dinner hours. It closed at 7 PM though, so it's an early dinner ...

This is what santouka looks like

one of their set menu

My regular bowl : shoyu broth
You better come early if you want to eat at santouka though, the line is quite long. I think we waited for around 30 mins that time before we could enjoy our ramen.

2. Enjoying the Weather
We often go to Santana Row, or other nice places to hang out if the weather is nice. It's kinda fun walking in santana row, watching peole while enjoying a cup of starbucks =D

Oh, luxury cars is a normal sight in Santana Row, but look what i found out last time ...

cute eh? =)

Well, that's two things that we mainly do in our weekends. Sometime we love to explore places that we've never visited before too. Well, actually my hubby has visited most of those place ... I'm the one who has never been to a lot of places here. Eniwei, i think it's still interesting for him to revisit those places with me =P

Photo Updates

 Some random photo updates:

Brazillian Cheese Bread

 This is my almost failed attempt of little teochew's Easy Brazillian Cheese Bread. It smells delicious though! I made this around early December last year.

prawn in tofu skin roll?
There is a dimsum to go store near our place called Taipan Dimsum. This is where I satisfy my sudden dimsum craving =P I've never tried this prawn roll before because i usually order their famous crispy shrimp ball. It turned out to be just okay. Based on my past dimsum experiences, this kind of roll usually filled with just seasoned shrimps ... so i was surprised to find greens, radish and shrimp filling inside of taipan's prawn roll. I think seasoned shrimps is still the best filling for this kind of roll.

Pork and thousand years egg
This is also one of the regular items that i order at Taipan. Pork and phitan egg porridge. I really like this porridge. Every time i feel like eating comfort food, this is what i buy. I've been eating this twice this week =P

 My husband bought this snack at ranch 99, milpitas, last week. It was on sale for less than 2 dollar per box i think .... and it is delicious! It has just the right amount of sweetness for my tongue. Would love to buy it again next time ...
