传奇

只是因为在人群中多看了你一眼
再也没能忘掉你的容颜
梦想着偶然能有一天再相见
从此我开始孤单地思念
想你时你在天边
想你时你在眼前
想你时你在脑海
想你时你在心田
宁愿相信我们前世有约
今生的爱情故事不会再改变
宁愿用这一生等你发现
我一直在你身旁
从未走远
只是因为在人群中多看了你一眼
再也没能忘掉你的容颜
梦想着偶然能有一天再相见
从此我开始孤单地思念
想你时你在天边
想你时你在眼前
想你时你在脑海
想你时你在心田
宁愿相信我们前世有约
今生的爱情故事不会再改变
宁愿用这一生等你发现
我一直在你身旁
从未走远
宁愿相信我们前世有约
今生的爱情故事不会再改变
宁愿用这一生等你发现
我一直在你身旁
从未走远
只是因为在人群中多看了你一眼

the yukke that got left out

Wow, I am so scatterbrained. This was meant for the Tajimaya entry but somehow didn't get included!

Yukke is a chopped raw beef dish that I have consumed very much of in Melbourne, in a little Japanese restaurant named Chuji Izakaya on Lonsdale Street. Possibly my favouritest Japanese dish ever. I had an authentic one when I was on holiday in Japan and found it to be very close to what I've had at Chuji. Hence I've deduced that Chuji does a very good version on par with those in Japan!

This one at Tajimaya scored on presentation but the taste was just above average. Maybe I have been spoilt by very good yukke. It wasn't bad at all, just not as good as what I've had. The beef was chopped fine, compared to the strips at Chuji and in Japan, so the texture was probably affected.

japanese dining SUN

Spent a pleasant Saturday arvo with B at Chijmes.

A place of memories for me... a long, long time ago...

Little Miss Peony waiting with my special order Bloody Mary (less vodka, less ice) while I play pool.

We headed to Japanese Dining SUN for dinner. Food was as good as I remember. Good job on keeping up the standards!

Salmon sashimi was succulent, fresh, perfectly cut.

The foie gras starter was amazing! Beautifully grilled slices of juicy foie gras, on crisp toasted bread and slices of fresh lettuce. The combination of tastes and textures was just perfect. I gobbled 2 of the 3. Teehee! Now I know why there was an option to upgrade to 4 pieces.

California rolls. Can't go wrong with this. Ingredients used were all very fresh. One minor gripe I had was this should have been served after the steak course, which came last.

Eggplant and minced meat in miso hotpot. We had this over a bit of plain rice. Very aromatic and flavourful, with a slight hint of spiciness. Eggplant was tender but firm, no sogginess. Went down very well.

Foie gras over wagyu steak with caramelised melon. I like how they do foie gras here, sliced thin so you get lots of the yummy crust. Steak was tender and juicy. Caramelised melon and a coupla slices of eggplant provided a nice balance for the palate.

Lastly, the tofu cheesecake that I've always enjoyed. It was as good as ever. Light, smooth, just the right consistency. A nice end to a good meal.

I've always liked the interior of Sun with Moon. The Wheelock Place sister outlet is very nice. But this one is classier, I reckon. And I love the ample comfy bench seats. I love bench seats! <3

Even the washroom is pretty. Glass sinks, flowers on the walls, clean lines...
