Vegetarian Lunch @ Yishenshu, One Utama

No comments:
Each time I am back in PJ, I would without fail pay a visit to Yishenshu with my parents.  I have been on vegetarian path every Monday since one year and since my parents are vegetarian too, I made it a point to visit Yishenshu every Monday with them for the whole month of February.

The food here is excellent.  Although some cringe with the thought of eating mock meat, I would like to think of it as another form of consuming soy product.  This was what we had on our first visit.

Their famous homemade Emperor Tofu.  Excellent stuff!

Lotus root dish, done right.  Deep fried then coated with a superb delicious sauce. 

Both Mum and Dad lovessss their pineapple fried rice.  I can see why.  The wok-hei was evident, and it was flavourful.

Something spicy and meaty, so to speak.  Done thai style if not mistaken. I can´t recall the exact taste but I remember not finding any fault with any of its dishes at all.  Love it here.

Dutch Oysters @ Carlplatz Düsseldorf

No comments:

I loveeeee Dusseldorf´s Carlplatzmarkt!  Their cut and arranged flowers from the flower vendors are simply amazing and mind boggling!  It is one of the best flower market I´ve seen in this part of Europe, beating Amsterdam´s fame Flower market FLAT.  But there is another reason to go check out the market and it is their food!  I spotted some fresh oysters and just got to have them!  6 freshly chucked Netherland Oysters with a glass of white wine for 10 Euro.  Wine could have been better, it was too dry for me.  But the oyster were faultless.

Retreat Space @ Home

No comments:

As of late, I´ve been picking up dozens of little hobby to keep myself occupy.  Gardening had always occupied a big chunk of my life previously but due to unforseen hay fever epidemia which hit me hard not just on my body, but on my soul too ... the least I can do for now is stay away from the garden during mid day when the sun is at its peak and try to seek ways to strengthen my immune system.  But I am not about to give up my love for flowers totally! So what I did instead is, created a tiny little retreat area on our balcony with some carefully selected non-pollunating blooms and to have our water fountain running constantly to give the area constant moist. I reckon it would be doable for a short period and not just get myself stuck indoor when it is so lovely outside.

So back to what I have been doing ... LOTS!  I have been practising my stitching on some leather pieces and hopefully soon, I will get a chance to learn a bit more from a leather master in the land of tea and scones.  I have been painting too.  Nothing spectacular but something I´ve always done during childhood and had always played around with it.  Cake baking is still big part of my life as I am still baking them weekly, and trying to push myself towards pattiserie cake level, which is sooo difficult but I am presevering to get there on my own speed at home.  I have been dabbling with flower arrangement too with funny themes and a little extra to spike them up.  But the one I am most excited about currently is signing up for yoga lessons with a very experience yoga master here.  It had been fantastic and I hope it stays that way for long and on regular basis.  The breathing exercise had so far helped me with my asthma, and hopefully in time to come, will also realign my energy flow, learn to listen to my body ailment, make peace with it and many many more such as awakening my spiritual path, and getting me closer to my believe.

Hubby himself has been keeping himself busy too!  At times with our new Porsche.  He is always looking for places to go too when weekend comes and would nudge me to make plans, irregardless of the weather!  We have tested our baby but not to its maximum capacity yet, but to me ... 220km per hour is fast enough to make me roll my yoga mat to calm down my adreline rush later.  He had also been selected to participate in his first ever World Championship race for Brompton in London!  Isn´t that great!  I am so proud of him :-)
