In fact I dreaded this trip’s flight to Japan as I had to transit at Vietnam for 6 hours before arriving at Narita Airport. Despite being cheaper this way, it was definitely a torture waiting for my flight. No more transit flights for me though.
Anyway, it was already nightfall when we arrived at Hotel Mystays Ueno Inaricho, which took us probably about 10 minutes walk from the nearest station – Ueno Station. One important thing I look out for while staying in any hotels would be a convenient store such as 7-11 within its vicinity. Thankfully there was one so that we could get our water and supper supply for the 2 nights.
AWADH, an Indian restaurant located in Orchard, The Centrepoint, is the only Indian restaurant in South East Asia serving authentic Lucknawi cuisine. Some might be curious about what’s so unique about Lucknawi cuisine which originated from the city of Lucknow itself.
We were introduced to a small segment of spices, out of the 120 that were used in Lucknawi cuisine before commencing the meal. Using age old secret recipes which are their family’s heirloom, the chefs of AWADH uses these aromatic herbs, spices, flavored ghee, and saffron for their dishes. It is definitely a dying art which the chefs uses to temper with the dishes as they had mastered the complex cooking techniques picked up from young.
The sighting of a fantasy bridge held up by a pair of hands started making rounds on the internet about 2 years back, catching the attention of many. I was one of the many whom was intrigued by such amazing structure and made a trip to Da Nang for that experience.
Known as the Golden Bridge (Cau Vang), it was located on Ba Na Hills, a hidden “playground” which offers much more than just a bridge. Ba Na Hills is basically a theme park & resort nestled on a mountain top. Who would have expected that?
A Singapore brand established since 2005, Chui Lau Heung is known for its durian snowy mooncakes, durian pastries as well as desserts. Due to their continuous efforts to implement innovation into their creations yet retaining the quality, Chui Lau Heung had managed to hit the shelves of international markets as well.
One such innovative creation would be their Mini Mao Shan Wang Durian Crystal Mooncakes as shown, which comes in a dazzling “jewel façade” box. In packs of 2 and a total of 6 pieces, each mooncake had a translucent white skin of gelatinous texture. Choose to eat it frozen or let it defrost before consumption and enjoy the exotic taste of durian.
Most of us are probably quite familiar with the Taiwan imported Brown Sugar Boba ice cream that swept the E-commerce marketplace sometime back. Each milky popsicle are loaded with brown sugar boba which still retained its chewiness despite being frozen.
