Again. Please excuse if some elements are not yet in order. This blog is undergoing a make-over. I found a great theme from Theme Foundry called “Make”. It’s simple, minimalistic, and very flexible with no codes to alter (unless you really want to do a […]

Going Japanese-a!

Going Japanese-a!

A friend of mine, Lui-in-Penh, and I arranged to meet at Aeon Mall last Friday for the much-needed breather from our daily routine. Last Friday, the weather was beautiful and sunny day in Phnom Penh, and thus was a great day for a lunch-date.

Aeon Mall is an upscale *kuning* mall filled with variety of shops and restaurants (to choose from). I haven’t eaten Japanese food in quite a long time and have been craving for it recently. So we went to this restaurant called Watami Japanese Dining. On our way there, I think I spotted a music maschine shop but was too excited about our lunch that I forgot to check it out afterwards.

It was nearly lunchtime when we got there, but it was still quiet with only one or two tables occupied. Good thing was that we didn’t have to wait for a table since this place normally gets busy come rush lunch hour.

There’s so much we wanted to try but opted for the special lunch set for a reasonable price. And we were not disappointed.

Special lunch set at Watami Japanese Dining, drinks excluded. The verdit - definitely coming back!

The special set came with a salad, hot potato fries that’s not soggy, breaded/fried chicken cutlets with egg sauce, sukiyaki, and the fantastic spicy salmon roll that just melts in your mouth. To finish our meal, we had mango honey toast and the refreshing fruit tea. Overall I enjoyed the meal. I think Manay Lui and I deserve special lunches like this, from time to time.

Watch out for a more detailed post coming out soon at PhnomPenhEats!

I miss blogging here. But I have been busy watching TV series and basically just bumming around. So I was supposed to update seven days ago but, guess what happened. A friend of mine recently discovered a new photo editor and shared it with me. […]

Did you see my dog?

Pet Humour Red Dog
Someone didn’t want to be seen.

This was months ago and my dog, Red, was just over two months old.
I was looking for him as I realised it had been quiet so suddenly in the veranda where I let him play. I called him; no Red. I kept on calling him. Over and over. Till I found him here. Called him again but he just wouldn’t budge. I guess someone didn’t want me to find him. Oh well.

Howdy! In this week’s Photo Hunt I am reminiscing the time I traveled to Sri Lanka back in 2002. It was work-related but I had this good intention of mixing business and pleasure, so to speak. After the conference ended, I met up with my […]

Wordless Wednesday: Bouquet

Wordless Wednesday: Bouquet

Today, the whole Kingdom marks the second death anniversary of the King Father Norodom Sihanouk and there was a big Buddhist ceremony this morning at the Royal Palace with the Queen Mother and King Sihamoni, and joined by PM Hun Sen and the country’s top officials.  A wreath-laying ceremony was also held at the King Father’s statue near the Independence Monument in Norodom Boulevard. Some more ceremonies are also planned later today.

Although the planned outing today with friends was called off, I am having a nice day at home.

My husband and I had a busy morning going about our chores together and, after lunch, we retreated to our own corners busy with our individual interests. He is tinkering with his school project while I, on the other hand, will soon be binge-watching after posting this photo for this week’s (not-so) Wordless Wednesday 🙂

Oh, hei, look! I haven’t blogged again. Didn’t you notice? Tee-hee-hee. It seems like forever, I know. Since deciding to quit my job early this year, I’ve never been busier! Making the decision to stay at home was lightning fast and the changes that came after were […]
