Bambu

Posted by Suteisi ♥ at 1:33 PM 4 comments
A few weeks ago, some co-workers and I decided to try out a new restaurant that recently opened. It's called Bambu! It's on Hunt Club, right next to the T&T Market (where I bought the yummy custard puffs).

It looks small from the outside but when you walk in it's actually quite big. I was surprised! The ceiling is very high also. The color theme of the restaurant is dark brown, beige, black and orange. It wasn't very busy when we walked it, but more and more customers walked in as the lunch hour went by.

Their menu is very big! They have a lot of variety, mostly a mix of Thai, chinese and japanese food. They have a website, you can check it out here: http://www.restobambu.com/




I ordered some pork and veggies spring rolls for appetizer. I was surprised there were three, usually it just comes with two. The sauce tasted like a mix of sweet mustard and your typical sweet & sour sauce (personally I prefer to eat my spring rolls with fish sauce though). I've had better spring roles before, but for the price they were pretty good.


For my lunch I ordered a bento box. It came with a miso soup, as usual.


I'm going to sound really picky here, but this is a review so I'll just give my honest opinion. The miso soup, tasted like every other miso soup I've had before. Except for the tofu cubes, they were HUGE and I didn't really like that, I'm used to smaller or at least medium sized ones and I like that better. Plus the fact that it was served in a square bowl was a little weird. Square isn't a good shape for soup bowl (have you ever tried usuing a round spoon in a corner?) and it's awkward to hold in your hands when drinking the last bit of it too.


Then the bento box. It was SO big! The biggest one I've had so far! It was california rolls, general tsao chicken, green salad, steamed rice and gyoza (I think that's what they're called?). Everything was very good. It was my first time trying out the gyoza and I personally didn't really like them. I ate them, so they weren't disgusting, but for my personal taste I wouldn't eat some again.

All in all, it was a good restaurant. Except I found the service was a bit slow, we got back to work and were late (we have 1 hour lunch). But the waitress was very nice and she seemed to know the menu very well. The prices were reasonable and the food was good.

If I had to pick, I'd go back to Pho Thi Fusion (which I reviewed a little while back). But I'd like to go back to Bambu at least once more to try something else on their menu.

Do give it a try if you happen to be in the area~


Have any of you guys tried a new restaurant lately?
Have you ever tasted gyoza? Did you like it?

Just a ring

Posted by Suteisi ♥ at 4:15 PM 3 comments
Found this while randomly window shopping the other day.


Without even knowing, I'd found my future wedding ring. I'll be telling my future husband when I meet him...


The best part? It's only 60$! Bahaha!


Have you secretly found your wedding ring? Or maybe it's your wedding dress?

November update

Posted by Suteisi ♥ at 4:26 PM 5 comments
It's been a while! Things have been pretty busy in my little corner of this world. I hope everyone's doing good. It seems so from all the blog entries I've been reading every week!

A few things have happened since my last update. Here's a small update for y'all, with pictures! Cause we all love pictures~

Let's begin!

I got my nails done two weeks ago. Resine nails with gravures! Cute right?

Aaaaannnd.... My hair's black now !! What do you think?


I've been doing a little bit of shopping, but it's all essentials! I swear!!

Really cute, comfy, soft and fluffy hat I found at Old Navy. 50% off !!

White jacket for fall weather. I've always wanted a white one! 50% off at Old Navy as well~


Last winter I was REALLY bored the whole season, so this year I decided I'll be trying out some winter sports to keep me busy. Mostly, I want to try and practice snowboarding. For that, I had to get proper attires.

Funny how I live in Canada, and we have big and long winters, yet I haven't had pair of snow pants in 10 years. 10 years !!! Can you imagine!! Lol

My snow attires~

And this unknown brand jacket. Got it 50% off because it was last season's!
(Which by the way, is awesome, because I am totally NOT digging this season's styles and colors.)



And today after work, the girl I carpool with and I decided to stop by T&T. It's a supermarket for Asians. There weren't any like this in the area, the closest one was 5 HOURS drive away, so finally they built one this year and it opened over the summer. I'm so happy! I love going there. Anyway, we went because I needed to buy a specific brand of short grain rice, and I found these~

Custard puffs!!!

Custard puffs are my favorite treats!!
They're like little bits and pieces of clouds from heaven~

And recently I started pen palling with a girl from Switzerland! I randomly found her ad online and decided to write her an e-mail. Her name's Heidi and her and I are SOOO MUCH a like, it's almost freaky. So I bought these cute letters sets online to write to her.

Cute right? They're a lot smaller than I thought though...



What have y'all been up to lately?
Are you preparing for the winter? (Or summer, my fellow Aussies!)
Do you plan on trying something new this season?
Have you had sweets recently? What kind? Tell me I need more! :D
Have you ever had a pen pal in the past? Still do?

Autumn is here

Posted by Suteisi ♥ at 9:47 AM 5 comments
So, autumn is officially here. In Canada (or at least the part I live in) is now with a bunch of naked trees. The leaves have fallen and have, literally, left a blanket all over the ground. The tree is probably the biggest on the street I live, and of course, it's in front of MY house.











A nice little pile after I finished picking them all up.

What's the weather like where you live? Anything special this time of the year?

Catfish

Posted by Suteisi ♥ at 10:55 AM 1 comments

I first heard of this movie on Ellen Degeneres' daytime show. The same day I started seeing the trailer on television. Right off the bat it spiked my interested. Is it a movie or a documentary? It is really real or is it another one of those "Blair Witch Project" type of thing?

The trailer they plaid in theaters had a critic say "The last 40 minutes will keep you on the edge of your seat!".

While it did not keep me on the edge of my seat, I quite enjoyed it. I didn't really know what to expect and I think that's the kind of attitude someone needs to have when watching such a movie. It's said to be all real, and it is indeed quite realistic, I'm 100% sure what happens in the movie has happened to others before and will continue to happen in the future as well. But weither it was really real or all fabricated just to make money, I'm not sure us specators will ever know. Film makers and actors can make us believe anything these days.

Plot summary from Wikipedia:

"Young New York photographer Nev Schulman lives with his brother Ariel and friend Henry Joost in New York. Abby Pierce, an eight-year-old child prodigy artist in rural Michigan, sends him a painting of one of his photographs. They become Facebook friends in a network that broadens to Abby's family, including her mother, Angela; Angela's husband; and Abby's attractive older half-sister Megan."

I encourage anyone that has even just a little bit of interest to see this. I think it could also be an eye opener for some of the younger kids and teenagers of our time.

Catfish was good. I quite liked it :)
