A piano does not comes cheap these days. I am so lucky my parents decided to send mine up to me instead of leaving it at home. Many of my friends who send their kids for piano lesson has to really think many times before they purchase one.
It would be alright if the boys wanna learn another musical instrument or purchase the boss me-70 guitar multi-effects pedal at guitar center
However I still hope my one of my kid would take up at least piano lesson to utilize the piano we have at home.
Verdict: The cake is so buttery and dense. Very fattening and I guess it is ok to indulge in such a rich butter cake once in a while
During the school holidays, it is very crowded everywhere. Traveling on our highway is a nightmare not to mention find a parking spot in shopping malls. I guess many are clearing their annual leaves while able to accompany their kids during this school holiday.
Thank goodness we completed all our travel and shopping plans at the malls. Furthermore online shopping would be able to complete my shopping items. I just found this watch from here, exactly the color and design that I have always wanted.
Each time we go to Mid Valley, the kids would only want to dine at their favourite restaurant, Hokkaido Ichiba. Not only they would want to order the same set, it is a must for us to sit by the window, facing towards their favourite construction view.
Last week when we were coming out from Isetan at the Ground Floor, I was so delighted to see a new Japanese Restaurant, Ichiriki, that serves non-halal Tonkatsu meals. I read that this new restaurant is run by Yuzu, which is just a few floors above.
Price is rather reasonable and since there were so many people eating in this restaurant, I thought it must be good.
There wasn’t any waiting line and the best part is, we easily got a table at a private corner.
Kurobuta pork from the black pig is the signature dish. However hubby only wants the normal pork. It comes in a set as shown above and we ordered extra rice to share with the boys. They love it!!!
However QQ insisted that she only wants her all time favourite Tempura set. This girl of mine certainly isn’t very creative on accepting new taste on her food.
Overall, food taste is rather good. I would always prefer non-halal meals but the kids would want to go back to their favourite restaurant next time for their favourite “construction view”, sigh…

Wrapping meat roll the traditional way, with pork caul
It has been about 7 or 8 years since MIL past away. How hubby miss his late mum’s dishes and the traditional Hokkien Ngoh Hiang is one of it that he always talk about.
Ingredients for Chinese Meat Roll:
Unlike Meat Roll that we see today that usually used Bean Curd Sheet, in the olden days late MIL would use Pork Caul instead.
Caul Fat is thin membrane of fat covering the intestines of a pig, cow or sheep. Caul fat is a translucent lace of fat, and it melts when cooked, so it provides moisture and flavor to the final product.
This is how my Pork Caul Meat Roll looks like after they are wrapped up
I went to the butcher and get some pork caul to work on. Washing this fragile slimy net was really challenging. It took me more than 30 minutes, rinsing the net under running water very carefully to wash all the tiny bits of dirt away.
The butcher gave me too much and since I could not estimate how much to use, I washed them all! Until now, I still have plenty of leftover sitting in my freezer…
Hokkien Fried Meat Roll, ready to be cut and served
I steam my meat roll prior to frying them. Our favourite way to eat this is to slice it first, then deep fry again with a beaten egg, so it taste more crunchy
