The Famous Kinana Ice Cream, Gion Kyoto

Posted by: Jamie Liew

August 25th, 2014 >> Posts

Gion is perhaps my favourite place in Kyoto and I would only like to complain that there’s too much to see. there are not just a lot of places to visit but also a whole lot of places to eat at! other than my Jouvencelle, I visited the famous Kinana which were reviewed by many Korean bloggers. I have a friend whom had passed me their card and tell me that I must go there when I go back to Kyoto.

it’s some health ice cream I heard.

so how to get there?

IMG_8149 copy

first, get to Hanami-koji! literally mean place to see flowers. I guess it’s a metaphor for a place to see Geishas hahaha.

IMG_8159 copy

okay now when you walk in, you should walk for a while and turn right into the next small street. it’s on that row. just keep walking around until you find it.

IMG_8166 copy

I kind of got lost since I went there looking at a map. oh well.

IMG_8170 copy

here’s how the alley look like! Kinana look pretty normal and it doesn’t stand out (at all!) so you should learn how to read Japanese. I am not kidding hahaha. it’s written “(something)(something)???” simple yes? just remember the double hiragana at the end.

*something something because I can’t read Kanji T_T.

IMG_8184 copy

Kinana had an array of desserts but I went right after some filling lunch at Izuju so I opted for something lighter. it looked like Kinana was known for their parfaits as well but oh well, there’s always a next time (and the parfait costs double! pfft.)

so how did it taste? I’d say, it tastes HEAVENLY. definitely a one of a kind ice cream shop as they have flavours barely sold anywhere else. I couldn’t remember any of the names of the ice cream by now but I had black sesame (my favourite of Japanese ice cream!) with some honey flavoured one. it was so light and fragrant I could have 2 more portions all by myself. it’s that type of ice cream which is soooo good you’d HATE to share.

IMG_8186 copy

we also ordered a bowl of Honey shaved ice. the beautiful honey paste resting on top of the finely shaved ice sure look desirable but if I was given another chance, I’d order the green tea. I like honey. but I didn’t like this one as much. the red bean and plain ice cream was good though.

IMG_8190 copy

oh hello =D.

IMG_8191 copy

although Kinana only has 6 flavours to choose from, it’s already a lot. the 6 flavours are Matcha (green tea), Kurogoma (black sesame), Azuki red beans, plain, Kuromitsu (black honey, says google translate), Yomogi (mugwort). there is another set where you can choose 3 ice creams and if you’re going with a friend I’d recommend to ORDER ALL THE FLAVOURS!!! =3. those mochi was good but the ice cream was amazing.

IMG_8193 copy

you can also buy a tub of ice cream  BUT you can only eat it inside. like, standing. because you’re not supposed to eat on the streets of Hanami-koji. and they’d not allow you to bring it out. so I guess that’s for when the place is really packed or you’re on a tighter budget =X.

IMG_8195 copy

remember those writings on the cloth because they are your only clue! there are no pictures or anything outside so..

here’s the website : http://www.kyo-kinana.com

pricing : expensive but affordable. around 700yen to over 1000yen per person. the tubs were 360yen. not cheap but if you’re in Japan already, don’t skimp!

I am not a famous blogger or anything, but I do get all sort of weird things ranging from hate mails to essays of their own life to love letters. I learned to be thick skinned and forget and not even let haters affect me. but really, to those who love me overly. please stop it. it’s creeping me out and I felt like I have a psychotic follower who is going to kidnap me one day and force me to marry him.

I would like to state that..

NO. I don’t want to marry you.

stop talking to me AS IF we are already in a relationship or as if we hang out.

don’t send me pictures of random things. including your parents pictures because it creeps me out.

I don’t add random people on Facebook. it’s my own private space and I hope you respect that.

please don’t tell me you want to be me. it is a little creepy too.

what I really do appreciate are..

appreciation comments/emails

thank you(s)

compliments (I LOVE THIS!)

suggestions on how I can improve.

correcting my grammar. I need this the most. don’t worry, it wouldn’t offend me. because I want to learn too. I know I have tonnes of grammar mistakes in each and every post T_T. oh well.

 

I also don’t mind if you email me asking me questions or if you want to set a date buy me lunch in Korea (if I have time. I love free lunches! ^^. only in crowded places.)

thank you!

NX Mini has the ultra Slim (22.5mm) light (158g) design with just a quick flip of the 3.0” touch display, your NX mini is on and ready to take the perfect selfie.

You can just flip your touch display even without press the on button, it will appear four small boxes at the left of the display screen, touch the 3rd box and it will pop out a selection of 3 options.

Kushikatsu Daruma, an Osakan specialty.

Posted by: Jamie Liew

August 20th, 2014 >> Posts

there are a lot to eat in Osaka, and I wouldn’t lie about it. but other than the normal Okonomiyaki and Takoyaki which could easily be found worldwide, let me introduce you to Kushi-katsu, a stick of almost anything deep fried. and it is not easy to find anywhere outside of Japan.

IMG_7547 copy

Kushikatsu can be found in many places in Japan but the famous (with chain restaurants!) one is kushikatsu Daruma. it is easy to spot. just look for an angry looking cartoon character outside the store!

IMG_7549 copy

can you see it?

CIMG5000 copy

this one’s the Namba chain (there are a few chains there too!) see the angry man now? hehehe.

IMG_8302 copy

and the one at Dotonbori’s main street! look at how angry he looks! I have no idea why he’s angry though @@. frying those kushikatsu and managing such a huge business must’ve drove him nuts haha.

CIMG4985 copy

I’m not sure about the other restaurants. but because Namba is FILLED with tourists and locals, they opened a huge restaurant and had it delivered to their customers with these cute “trains” and everything in the shop was pretty darn hi-tech!

CIMG4997 copy

I know it does not look very appetizing here. but the Camembert cheese tastes the best! to me.

CIMG4991 copy

I liked their beef and chicken too! and the chicken internal organ stuff =X. it goes very well with salt and chilli flakes!

check out the modern-ness of this awesome restaurant! and we order everything through the screen too! this way they don’t need many employees on the floor! and they can deliver much more efficiently!

CIMG4983 copy

my stop was Shin-Osaka hehehehe.

and here’s the interior of the restaurant!

IMG_7391

okay back to the Sinsekai outlet.

IMG_7555 copy

today’s special menu! (?)

IMG_7556 copy

look at the amount of people here. we had to queue for it.

IMG_7559 copy

very sweet cabbage, spices and the kushikatsu sauce!

NOTE : YOU CAN ONLY DIP YOUR KUSHIKATSU ONCE in the sauce. no re-dipping!

IMG_7564 copy

now now, don’t it look good? it might be pretty pricey but it really did fill me up! don’t look down on them! I am not the biggest fan of fried food but when it comes to JAPANESE fried food? I’m in. it would not be something I’d like to eat daily but it’s really delicious! I’d grade it an 8/10. the dipping sauce wasn’t really my type but it’s good overall and I understand why I’d have to queue for this every time. because it’s really worth to queue for! well if your queue is over 30minutes maybe not.

Kawasaki´s Penis Festival

Posted by: CassandraJiaYee

August 16th, 2014 >> Posts

Since we were near Kawasaki and overheard about this weird Penis festival going along in Japan, 
we had a day plan stopping over Kawasaki before going to Gotemba.

Since we didnt do much research, we arrived Kawasaki about 12 noon but to our disappointment we found out that the ceremony just finished.
But thankfully I was just in time to take picture of this huge sculpture which they carry around during the parade ceremony.


Well, most of you will have thought it would be a popular festival among the Japanese but surprisingly,
we told these festival to our other japanese friends and they do not even know about it.
Apparently, when we arrive the Kawasaki station, 
it was packed with non-japanese but mostly the caucasions !

And according to our friends there is a american military zone nearby and we saw many drunk look like american soldiers around this area partying and having fun.

The shrine square is very packed and full of stalls of various products to purchase which aren´t common 
at all in Japan.

For instance this,


Well, other than that, there is also this famous Lollipop sold in this area costing only 600Yen each.
They also provide the female version of lolipop as well but it seems like this shape is more popular even with the mens.

Not to forget this sell the penis shape nose which make you look like Squidward in Spongebob square pants.
Or those whom need instant Viagra
Lots of "SAKE" for sale 
Other than that, you can spot the usual Japanese having their Picnics in the square.


Whereas some would dressup for attention.

And Cosplayers





Here is how the Shrine looks like, 
it is quite tiny but immensely popular and crowded.

Meanwhile the musicians for this event looks like they are not having much fun as the crowds.

And the utterly Cute and super cool Japanese family that had so much fun with their kid´s innocent behaviour.
Well, good education!!

And here more unique shape lolipops as your eyecandy !
Even if you didn't appear to be on this special event, 
just drop by this shrine and you would find a holy penis sculpture there.
If not mistaken, 
The reason why they have this shrine is to pray for those HIV and AIDS diseases.


Other than these shrines,
Kawasaki has other bigger shrine just in a walking distance and 
you would be surprise to see how quite that shrine and that it has no penis relations at all.
It would totally appear as just a normal shrine as others.





And that´s all about Kawasaki !!
I would surely never forget this festival ever.

Thanks for reading.

[ADV] Kronenbourg 1664 Rooftop BBQ @ Stratosphere, The Roof

Posted by: Copykate

August 16th, 2014 >> Posts

Thanks to Carlsberg Malaysia, we were often invited to myriad of events with tonnes of beer, food and entertainment. Last Friday, fellow MHB bloggers and I had the privilege to enjoy a classy rooftop BBQ party with generous supply of ice-cold Kronenbourg beer and endless serving of barbecued meat! It was my first time to Stratosphere and I was amazed by how breezy and cooling it could get up there, not forgetting the stunning sunset as well as night view it has to offer. As I mentioned on my social media update earlier, admission was free before 10pm and the first 100 guests get 2 bottles of Kronenbourg beer for FREE! How generous of them!

To be franked it was my first time trying Kronenbourg beer *shy* I mean it is not exactly served everywhere at restaurants and bars unlike the more giant brands. Therefore it was quite an exciting moment for me to have been invited to such a awesome event whereby I could taste Kronenbourg for the first time in my life! LOL. For those of you who have not heard of this French beer, they first started off with Lager variant (green bottle) and subsequently introduced Blanc, wheat variant (blue bottle). Girls, I would highly recommend Blanc as the taste is lighter. Strictly no bitterness like your ordinary beer, guaranteed satisfactory! Teehee.

Since the launch in 2010 by Carlsberg Group, Kronenbourg 1664 has been exposing Malaysian consumers to the French way of life namely – food, fashion and enjoyment. This has been communicated through a series of consumer and media engagements including Kronenbourg 1664’s signature event L’Aperitif Fashion which is like a Malaysian version of Project Runway, being the official beer of the BMW WTA Open and STYLO, a series of wonderful fine dining food pairings, and most recently their Cinq à Sept campaign which is all about having good work/ life balance.


For those who work in the city, you’re most likely to experience some form of stress – traffic jams, work stress, overtime, boss yelling at you, backstabbing, kids screaming etc. . . 

Of course, these humdrums of life are inevitable, but the least we could do is to reduce our stress level! To achieve this, Kronenbourg 1664 has come up with ‘Taste the French Way of Life’ which is a brand new thematic campaign aimed at giving you and your friends some enjoyable, memorable yet simple experiences.
We all are aware that the French are known to really enjoy their life, while Malaysians (from the urban area) on the other hand are quite career and work-driven, striving from morning till late evening to make a good living for themselves and their family. We wouldn't judge that one culture is better than the other, but somewhere in between is where Kronenbourg 1664 wants you to be with “Taste the French Way of Life”- achieving a good work/ life balance.
All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy! Teehee.

Therefore, Kronenbourg 1664 has come up with a series of events to make us really look forward to Fridays! *excited*
To start off the series was the Kronenbourg 1664 Rooftop BBQ party at Stratosphere, The Roof, First Avenue Bandar Utama on 8 August 2014!

Kelly, Jiayeen Stephanie and I were present that night. All 4 of us are working adults now, can you believe it! :O It somehow makes me understand what Kronenbourg 1664 was trying to achieve as we Malaysians are always so caught up in work that we forget to appreciate the finer and simpler things in life – friendship, togetherness and quality moments!


Check out the pretty ambassadors in Kronenbourg uniform! 


Henry J. Anderson, the Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia went up on stage for a short speech and the launch gambit which involved his using the gas gun to blow away all your worries. You should be familiar with the gas gun if you frequent PLAY! ^^





Time for BBQ! Lamb, chicken wings, sausages, patty, pasta etc etc.We stuffed ourselves with every sort of food they offered that night!


While we were busy enjoying the food, a two piece band serenaded us with some of the latest hits.



We even managed to persuade MHB's resident professional songbird Kelly Siew to perform "Can't Take My Eyes Off You" - Carlsberg's signature song. Bravo to Kelly, she is such a great singer who instantly gained the crowd's approval!




The humorous MC kept the guests entertained with games giving out cool prizes like a Kronenbourg 1664 mini fridge to the winners!



All the guests were having a great time chilling and enjoying the food, beers and entertainment. The nice and breezy weather added to the overall ambience.



A poi dancer enthralled the crowd.



Girls being girls. We kept ourselves occupied at the photowall or flipbook wall as they call it as they recorded a short video and printed it out onto a small notebook which you can flip the pages to make it seem like a little video. How cool is that??




Delicious barbequed lamb, ice-cold Kronenbourg 1664 beer, live band and games together with friends at a cool breezy 29-storey venue. All the ingredients necessary for a fun and memorable party! What more could you ask for on a Friday evening?

Can’t wait to see what else they have in store for consumers and I’m really excited to attend Kronenbourg 1664’s “Taste The French Way of Life” upcoming events especially the big finale party on 5 December!
MAKE SURE YOU SAVE THESE DATES:

How was it like Staying in a Japanese Restaurant

Posted by: CassandraJiaYee

August 16th, 2014 >> Posts

As we had our late night arrival to Kamakura from Tokyo, 
Our dear friend Ukon welcomed us from the station itself as he insisted on leading us to his Restaurant.
We were very excited to know that we would be staying in his Restaurant and in our minds,
we were thinking Oh!! It must be those traditional wooden restaurants that serves ramen or somewhat Izakaya style.

But to our Surprise, it was NOT what we totally expected at all !
It looked super cool, with much antique furnitures and look like a cool cafe to hang out at.
And it is called THE WANDER KITCHEN.
Totally made us wonder how did we even got there cause we had to walk through a maze of paths to get there.

Such a nice entrance huh ?
 I still couldn't believe that I would I be sleeping in such restaurant.
and even toilets with such Baths !

And stairs to go up to another cozy dining place whereby our room is just hidden behind these walls !
How cool was that !
Too bad we forgot to take picture of the room but it was a nice room with a Bed!!
Totally not the traditional tatami futon style in Japan !
Not to forget, at the corner there is a stack of music cds directed or even played by our talented friend - Ukon.

That night, it was a raining cats and dogs and we were having a nice time listening to his Cds while drinking beer.
And here is the Kitchen.

We always thought that It would be nice we purchase their restaurant food as a good deed in return but
Ukon is way too nice and generous that he told us to have anything we wanted and all would be provided by his staffs !
Where can you get such friend in this world huh !? 
His generosity is way beyond that I could Thank him for.

The next day we woke up and surprised some customers as we came out from the hidden walls.
It was so fun to see their reaction ! 

Our lovely breakfast started of with this yummy pumpkin soup !
The best ever !!

And Western Breakfast !!
Scarmble eggs,asparagus , salad and bread.
It was delicious !!

We went our for our day sightseeing around Kamakura and came back for Dinner!

Whereby I became the HEAD CHEF

And Made Ukon his favourite Malaysian Nasi Lemak !
I was sooo surprised he had all the ingrediants !

We had it with his partner and employees.
Back then I spoke very few Japanese but thankfully they could speak very good english so we had no communication error at all !

Ukon is very talented and owns a few shops in Kamakura itself. Currently, he has open a new hotel in Kamakura and would be glad to have some volunteer around as well.
Feel free to contact Ukon. 
Here is also his website to check out his cool songs collection.
And our net day´s Breakfast !!!
It was Japanese Breakfast instead !

Onigiri, miso soup and Omelette with Coffee and Milk.
Yumz it was soo satisfying!

And here is how their Restaurant look like.


We departed Kamakura and headed next to Kawasaki´s famous penis festival !
It was crazy fun !!

Mt Fuji+ Sakura blooming @ Kawaguchiko Lake

Posted by: CassandraJiaYee

August 15th, 2014 >> Posts

I always known about Mt Fuji since I was young and dream of seeing it one day as of what I had seen from picture.

At last , I got to see it !!!

Photo credits and copyrighted of Christian Bjerknes

There are lots of places from the famous 5 lakes which of you can see Mt Fuji from and we chose Kawaguchiko lake since it is the closest to Gotemba, (where we stay)
Gotemba itself to Kawaguchiko takes about less than 30min ride but the bus fake was more than 1500Yen.

Well, once we arrive Kawaguchiko, we walked around and saw a small hill and decided to Hike up there to get a nice view.

This is how the hiking looks like right after winter.
'
And when we reach on the top, to our surprise it was quite empty but still but such cute doll statues.

And so I sat on one of it ! =P

But after hiking a bit further, we found this nice spot with an amazing view of MT FUJI without the fences!

It was gorgeous and we sat , had our picnic lunch and enjoyed this view.

There are also some observatory binoculars to view the city below Mt Fuji.

Photo credits and copyrighted of Christian Bjerknes

 And a plus for the Hike, another nice view of Kawaguchiko Lake.
Worth the hike huh ?!

And while hiking throughout the way, you will still see the Great Mt Fuji which is a great motivation in order to get to the top.

Photo credits and copyrighted of Christian Bjerknes

 Being my first time in Japan, I was so in love with these beautiful wild flowers that I cant resist to take picture with them !
( But weirdly, I would not do this in the middle of KL city =P)

Its quite a distance to the other side of Kawaguchiko but we decided to walk since there are so many full bloom Sakura trees on the way.

Photo credits and copyrighted of Christian Bjerknes

Looks like we are the only tourist walking so we got the road pathways to ourselves and can take as many pictures as we want with Mt FUJI
Ans we then arrived after hours of walking but still we were not tired as we are so excited to see so many more full bloom cherry blossoms.

Photo credits and copyrighted of Christian Bjerknes

And its not only the normal kind of Sakura trees but a mixture of different types.
And also, the midst of planting Shiba sakuras to match the full bloom sakuras in the background.

What is best and you would see most photographers here are for is to take this gorgeous picture of a sakura fuji combination.

Photo credits and copyrighted of Christian Bjerknes

It is sure quite popular but we were smart enough to find some rural trees away from the crowd.
Syok! 
 We then walk further and found some super unique art gallery.


And nearby on the hill was a hot-spring we were looking for to relax after our long walk.

We paid about 800Yen for this nice hotspring which was recommended by the tourist information in Gotemba.


We got back to enjoy the twilight moment of Mt FUJI 

Photo credits and copyrighted of Christian Bjerknes
 And got too carried away with time.
and We missed our last bus back to the city centre.
But then found ourselves some nice Japanese people whom offered to give us a ride back ! 


They were our first ever "HitchHiking" experience.

Ps: This happend 2013March and I still remember them.

Thanks for reading !!

How To Restore Deleted Google+ Photos

Posted by: MsXeRoZ Nicole

August 14th, 2014 >> Posts

Shit happens. 
Shit happens when you give a non-computer expert blogger (me) who is so messy with her photographs and blog materials (me) that this particular blogger (yes, me again) didn't realise that Google+ & WebPicasa is one and one the same.

GAH, and she (referring to myself) claims to be a blogger since 2009.
GAH.. this kind of blogger should seriously be banished into the caves of Gua Tempurung and live nomadically.

Well, I'm just describing myself, if you happened to be just as blur (or ignorant) as me, fret not. You are not alone. Before that, let me tell you how it happened. I accidentally clicked something at 2am last Saturday. Then the next thing I knew my whole computer images are being "sync" to the Google+. I was so worried shit because I did loads of porno I didn't want to upload my wedding photos online! I want to hold the control on what to share, and what not. Wedding photos are between me and family, so I hold on strongly that these photos do not need to be published online. So I took effort to drain all my energy at 2am to delete ALL (or almost all photos and Google+) and go to sleep.


It was not until just now at 9.30pm, after playing with Bunny that I just wanna blog about something and SHIT! 

That masses of SHIT hit my brain and I remembered the horrible torturous moments of deleting photographs at 2am is ACTUALLY deleting my blog photos as well. Worse of all, I'm not an organized person at all, my photos are labelled and kept everywhere and there's no way to restore my blog back to its glorious days (is there?)

So I mentioned this shittiness to @Tianchad (who still blogs), and he says try to retrieve from TRASH lah. I was sceptical!  

"CAN MEH? You think like korek tong sampah so easy meh? I deleted many days ago!!!"

I would die trying, so I did, and I managed to restore my blog. YEAY!
You see, the good thing about this whole online thingy is that even Trash is kept. It's not like those DBKL Bandaraya trash lorry that comes every 3 days and your sampah is taken. GONE, and life goes on. With just a few clicks of the mouse, my photos are retrieved as the trash is only cleared after 60 days.

PHEW. Thank God that I came online today, rather than next 60 days, right? Then all my years of crapping online, my victorious moments, my climax of everything (Fuiyoh) is all GONE. and I will definitely quit (or I thought I just mentioned that I'm determine to restore my blog back manually just now?) from blogging.

Ok here's the 3 CRITICAL STEPS of restoration of Google+ Photos:-

1. Login, click PHOTOS

Screenshots are blurred to protect those people I stalk online (LOL jk)

 STEP 2: Click BIN
Photos are blurred because these are old photos of me and my friends. I look horrible!
 STEP 3: Click RESTORE
Photos are blurred because these are my precious wedding photos. For personal viewing only. Not for Public Display.

All photos that were being deleted within the 60days period can be restored. Kudos to myself for finding this solution. and Boo to myself for being so silly.


Ah..what a tiring day. I was thinking of blogging about Cameron Highlands or Fluffy's story, but it's a tiring journey of restoration tonight. I shall pause my humble intentions and play it some other day instead.

Good night everybody!

XOXO
