Went to this place Dak Hanmari on Queen Street. I took my student out and he recommended this place. Basically it was a chicken steamboat.
Never thought it would be so filling...
It was my student's birthday. I usually bake something for such an occasion, but this time I found out about it like a day before, and I just didn't have time to get things organized. So. I got to get one from a store. But which one?
Pandoro Penetteria is on the Parnell Road and pretty close to my place. I just dropped by in the morning on the way to work, and asked what they have for a whole cake. I was told that they have this Mediterranean Orange cake, and so I went for it...
It was close the dinner time, and I knew I had to stay in the lab for a while still. Well. I decided to go to Papaya yet again. Yeah. I know.
It was 6:25PM when I got there. On the door it said it closes at 6:30PM. I felt a little guilty but opened the door nonetheless. I asked a kitchen staff if the place was still open, and the answer, thank goodness, was yes. So I asked for a couple of croquettes and an Oyako-don.
I like food courts. Cheap food is good. Sure, sometimes you run into a lemon or two but generally they are okay for the price.
I heard that there is another one in Ponsonby and so I decided to pay a visit. It's... Not very close to my work it turned out. About 2.5 km away (or a mile and a half). Yeah. I'm the idiot who decided to walk all the way in the rain.
After finally getting there, my first impression was... It's clean here. Yeah. It's noticeably clean. The ones I've been to, at least the ones with Asians, have been a little on the not-so-clean side. This one was. And I guess it was reflected in the price. Not the cheapest food court out there. But then again, this joint is located in Ponsonby where yuppies hang out.
Anyway. I just had steamed Hainanese chicken on rice. Yeah. walked all the way out there and had this. I guess by this time I just wanted food; any food. It was a late lunch at 4PM...
I saw this place Sakanaya a while back by chance. I was on the bus to the CourierPost depot to pick something up that they tried to deliver when I was not in but they did not make the re-delivery attempt. Typical. The restaurant looked "genuine" Japanese. It's pretty much just around the corner from my work, and so I finally gave a go. I had sushi and sashimi platter.
So, I read about this program KeyHole TV which is a p2p broadcasting program. I am sure it is violating the copyright laws somewhere but it's good to be able to catch up with Japanese TV shows... I never found out how to configure Comodo firewall to work this program though...
I heard that there is a food court near the med school. It's on K' Road next to this Asian supermarket. So, I just went there to take a look. I decided to have a Singapore noodles.
My technician is leaving the lab, and so we went out for a farewell lunch. She chose this place Nickies down in Newmarket. I had spring rolls for an entree.
