As I mentioned before, noodle has always been my favorite carb-loaded dish. No matter how I try prevent myself from indulging the dish so much, I’m still drawn to it whenever it is available. So I kinda forgave myself from losing my control in Isetan when I found out that they were having dry noodle sale. They had a various range of dry noodle, from dry Udon, dry Somen, dry Ramen, all the way to the famous Soba. I couldn’t help my self to give a try on every single sampler available, not that I enjoy the free-stuff, but of course I enjoy the free delicious noodle by any means! Continue reading

The last couple of months were a down time for me. The work, the routine, the days, I think I really needed a break. Maybe I needed a holiday. But you see, life has no mercy, it keeps coming to you no matter how you feel, no matter how you are so tired of waking up in the morning and drag your self to the office.
But lets just move aside from this mumbling, complaining, non-related-to-food-blog topic to kitchen activities. Continue reading
Now breakfast series menu#2. Deconstructed sandwich.
I have grown fond of baguette recently. I could buy that long loaf of pure carb and eat it all by myself on my way home from the train station. It has become my guilty pleasure, right up there, next to noodles. Continue reading
