a different japanese dinner

my first attempt to a food blog entry!

last night, after we arrived in Dongguan City, Shenzen, we checked in at Haiyatt Garden Hotel, a five-star hotel in Chang An. We had dinner at Takemura restaurant inside the hotel. Hands down, I think in terms of food and presentation, this is the best dinner I have ever had! Check out the pictures below! :D

the set we ate was called the "elegance set". it was a surprise cause it didn't say what was to be served. so, first off, we were served fish appetizers. then we feasted on this sashimi platter:

ang cute ng presentation huh?

after that came the soup i think. i can't remember the sequence... but it was really a feast! not in order, but these are more pictures:

beef slices over the lotus leaf over a hot stone and clay plate!

tiger prawn wrapped in bacon. yummy!

fish liver. it wasn't as bad as it sounds. it was actually very good!

i didn't remember the take a photo of each dish, but there was a clear soup that was really nice, a rice roll with ayu fish, some steamed fish i think. basta it was really a nice dinner. it was unique, something I haven't had before. And although the price was around 380rmb, it was really worth it. you couldn't get anything in manila for that kind of feast :D

til the next great dinner!

birthday blues

i hate to admit it, but getting older do have its ups and downs. the older you get, the more realizations come by. And the past few days before my birthday was an eye opener. i'm not that affected anymore but it did affect me for quite a while. but at the end of the day, i know God has plans... and it's 12:22am now... the day of my bday... and i can feel a bit of sunshine already. thanks Lord...
