Lately there hasn’t been a day where I pass a day without drinking at least 200ml of tomato juice.

近頃、トマトジュース(最低200ml)を飲まずに一日を終えることがない。

Yet another 1L bottle is about to run out so I think I know what I’m gonna have to buy at the super market tonight.

1リットルボトルがまたしても無くなってきたので、今夜帰り道に何を買わなきゃいけないか決定だな。

味はわりと普通かな??
でも雰囲気が美味しい!

There are types of smoothies with and without crushed ice.

I like the type WITH the ice crushed and mixed within the fruits. It’s just more refreshing.

I stopped by at my favorite salad/smoothie stand the other day called “Dressed”,which is at a lot of places in Hong Kong. You get to choose from about 10different types of smoothies and they all look yummy.

I got the Mango Tango (mango, apples, orange juice and ice) and Jerome got the Forest of Fruits?or something like that. this one had strawberries, raspberries, vanilla yogurt, milk and ice, I think.

The texture and flavor of the smoothies here somewhat remind me of Jamba Juice , which I have been missing. Big time ..

It didn’t take me that long to decide where to go for our 5th year anniversary. I knew what I wanted —my all time favorite OYSTERS!!

And then the next step was to think of the venue. Either A) go rather upscale and do the seafood and oyster bar at the Sheraton Hotel. or B) go easier on the budget yet aim for the same or higher level of deliciousness.

taking into account that we did a good spending for our valentines day celebration and that we both still have our tuition fees to take care of :p ..we knew we had to take the latter choice.

Did I just make it sound like it was such a reluctant choice ? well if so, I’m for sure the one to blame. That place does some magic! Now I know why it had such great reviews on Open Rice (restaurant rating site…not sure if it exists outside of hong kong?).

The place is called “Open Oysters”–A tiny place on Mody Road in Tsim Sha Tsui . it’s actually on a small street near Mody road sandwiched by some buildings , so it’s a little hard to find the place .

But once you find the place and get yourself seated , all thats awaiting you are : good oysters of great variety, good selection of wine, and surprisingly good stuff from the grill . I forgot to take pictures of the beef steak cubes and lamb sausages , but they were good.

Oh how I wish Oysters could be something I eat everyday. Just like rice or bread, if you know what I’m trying to say.

どうしても唐揚げが食べたいと思い、昨晩帰宅してからさっそく作りました。
Since I was craving for some “kara age” for the entire day yesterday, I made some for dinner once I was back from work
