A Fruitful Day @ Vivo

As the goddess cun make it on tues and wed, and both the princess and queen not available on thurs and fri, the king declared our movie outing on Sat =P

But still, princess was too lazy to come out ~___~

Intitially when they mentioned about trying out on Carl’s Jr, I thought wat ‘Cow’s Jr’ … a new restaurant? hahaha …

It was a high-end fastfood restaurant which accepted credit card too (only cc give out discount)… cos just 3 burgers alone with a box of fries cost more than $20+. But the price was simply worthwhile considering that they weren’t just simple burgers and fries 😛

Beef Chilli Cheese Fries
it do look gross on the pix but this was an enhanced cheese fries of KFC … which I love too ^____^ (note: it’s “love” not “like” :P)

NL’s order – Portobello Mushroom Burger
according to NL, this was better than my fav mushroom swiss burger from Burger King. I gotta to try it for myself next time.

CL’s order – Carl’s Catch Fish Sandwich
she cun wait to eat up her burger and so only managed to stop her for my pix taking after one bit of it … so u can imagine how irresistible the fish sandwich was 😀

My order – Double Western Bacon Cheeseburger
Ok, one word … YUMMY/SEDUP/赞! And it was until half way thru that I realised there were fried onion rings in them … not simply cutted out raw onion rings but like those fried onion rings side order from Burger King.

These burgers were huge, and one cun be too much of a lady to eat them (excuses for me :P).

Movie for the day was the long-awaited (since NL intro it to me some times ago) Water Horse.

I like true tales/myth. Wat more I read about this myth many times some years back from those thick hardcovered books on the unexplained. Moveover the trailer attracted me to it alot.

However I din know that the story was set in during WWII cos I usually dun read reviews or storyline when I wanted to watch a movie, but rather thru the media (tv/radio) recommendations or trailers. Some were of cos words of mouth from friends ^_*

Though both NL and CL found Cursoe disgusting, but I found it ‘disgustingly’ cute and humourous ^___^

Overall, it was a touching movie **sob sob** I had been watching cheaply discounted subsidised movies to know that a sat movie tix could cost as high as $10 :-O

this was given out when we bought our drinks and pop corns, but I din managed to relate this to the Horton’s movie.
Saw the little white ‘speck’ there? ^___*

Our next excitement began … shopping and eating … yeh!!!! ^^

The Queen had a great fall the day before and had refrained herself from getting near the easily excited me who anytimes could just ‘slam’ on her injured and braised arms 😛

Even though that, she still needed me for helping her putting on with clothes. Oops! Dun misunderstood! I only helped her to put on a jacket outside the long queuing fitting rooms. And because of such ‘greatfulness’, she offered me a mattress in her room until she recovered. Well, having a nice bed at hm, I totally turned her down … hehehee …

While searching for a nice dinner, the contents in the menu @ Shin Kushiya attracted us in.

Jako Sarada (S$11.80)
dun it looks Lou Hei :P. Rather crunchy and refreshing, but we decided that we would try other salad dishes in our visit.

Satsuma Imo (S$4.80)
the charcoal-baked sweet potato was heavenly … I felt such a sense of happiness even on the first bit … exaggerating abit … but it was really good which made me missed bbq-ing 😀

Ika Sugatayaki (S$10.80)
I think my bbq-ing ‘recipe’ of sotong with sambal sauce taste better 😀

Ton Katsu Curry Don (S$15.80)
Curry was served separately with fully stuffed potatoes bits.
But like wat NL mentioned in her blog, this really cannot be compared to Tonkatsu. I would forgo this in my next visit.

Hiyashi Koimo (S$4.80)
ay…I think our ‘tang yuan’ taste better 😛 … but both of them like it though

From left to right
Tsukune (S$1.90) – minced chicken meatballs
Aspara Maki (S$2.80) – wrapped with thinly sliced pork
Gyu Enoki Maki (S$3.60) – wrapped with thinly sliced beef
Gyu Karubi (S$3.80) – prime beef
Nikuzume Shiitake (S$2.60) – mushroom stuffed with minced chicken

Their grilled sticks were simply wonderful. Fresh and juicy, except some disappointment with their beef sticks. The marinating taste only appeared on the surface but not deep into the meat itself.

Chimmi Yakitori (S$2.80)
Quite an interesting combi of chicken thigh with special tako-wasabi topping. I kinda of like it cos I like wasabi choking feel =P

Cha Soba (S$9.80)
The 3 bundles of soba were just nice for each of us to try … but somehow I preferred those at Waraku than this cos dipping into the sauce mixed with wasabi, minced radish and spring onions tasted so much better.

Tempura Mori (S$14.80)
this assorted seafood and vegetable tempura wasn’t so fantastic but may try out other tempura dishes in the next visit though

Kuro Goma Heaven (S$7.80)
nicely presented. I felt as if I was taking the sesame paste cos the sesame taste was very rich : )

Tofu Cheesecake (S$4.80)
tasted just like chicago cheesecake, but a lighter version. Maybe that’s how it was called Tofu Cheesecake.

Macha Ice Cream (S$3.80)
“how can a japanese meal complete without a green tea dessert”, and so we ordered this.
Very creamy but I would prefer stronger green tea taste 😀

It seems as if we were possessed cos we ordered sooooo much food … with CL calculating the amt we going to spend on this dinner after placing our orders =P

But pls be warned to avoid ordering all in 1 order cos the dishes were served rather fast and so earlier dishes get cold easily.

And coincidentally, our total bill (excluding svc charge and gst) was S$111.00 ***strong 4D feel again =P***

2 good meals + 1 good movie + shopping + 2 good friends on a relax Sat, wat more can I ask for? ^____^


But pls dun remind me of the carbo we had intake for the day **hmph! :-\**
