Sushi Mentai Seremban

Initially, Seremban only has some random japanese restaurant that does not last long, I still remember the first time I enter a Japanese restaurant and order Udon when I am a kid, it just taste so horrible that i swear to my life that I wont ever eat any of it again. Yea... true... I dont eat Udon after that but i have grow fond towards Japanese food.

Sushi King appeared in Jusco Seremban 2. When there is nothing to eat and you are not exposed to more sushi shop, you will always think that sushi king is the BEST!! but after the last bonanza... i just hate sushi king for their quality is dropping. =(

Matsu used to be the only standard Japanese Restaurant in Seremban but i think the pricing is slightly ex... and it is getting more and more ex now. grrr.... but it got the right cause it provides good environment and the food is also quite good.

Then came Sushi Uptown... I havent try it since that incident of the horrible waitress nearly dropping the plates onto my dad, break the plates and totally forget my order and make my ordering a havoc but telling me the basic Ika, salmon and tamago is not in stock. zzzzzzzz....

Later, came Sushi Mentai.... If i did this post 2 months earlier, I did compliment it nonetheless. cause i really love Mentai and they provide mentai. lol. Let me said the good things about it first. =P

How it looks. At uptown Seremban 2. The first time I went is in July. Every plate of sushi on the belt is only RM2.30 (tax not included). Comparably cheaper than other sushi shop.
It has a branch in Batu Pahat. Hasnt visit it yet since everyday is like a working day and i m in my adjustment mode which means i will keep complaining, in depressed mode and non motivated. haha~ sorry for people around me.

The menu. =) quite pretty.


One thing i like about the sushi in Sushi Mentai is it is handmade. Like this:
Small, cute and tightly knitted. Not like Sushi King one sooooooooooo loose that it breaks at the moment my chopstick touch it. cis nya.

The sushi:
Top left (clockwise): Salmon sushi - quite fresh and yummy in July. but after that it sorts of getting thinner.=.=
Cheese roll with crabstick- not bad if you love chesse.
Unknown sushi object-I thought it is a fruit sushi but it turns out.... hm.... no comment.... funny taste but edible.
Unagi roll- haha. a bit too thin for me. I like the thick unagi roll. Taste is quite good.

Extra food:
Top Left (clockwise): Salmon roll- didnt see it at the third time i went. It just disappeared from the belt. God know how much I love Salmon especially salmon roll (the best one is in Jusco midvalley)
Tako- still midvalley Jusco has the best tako. But this one is so cute and they give us a lot of mayonnaise and topping that i sort of fall in love with it.... (only for the first 2 visits).
It is some Don- Not really nice. Only their sushi is up to standard. Their rice is too soft and sticky.
Endame- I LOVE THIS!!!!! =D anyway. who can go wrong with Endame??!!

The specialties of Sushi Mentai:
All are top with Mentai sauce. Once you tried it, you will fall in love with in. Everything goes well with Mentai. But sadly... after the first 2 visit... when i revisited it at September, the choice of mentai sushi has decrease... the varities are bad... I saw only 4-5 types of sushi on the belt. =/ the waitress are mostly impolite... ignoring us when we enter the shop.... leaving us there without menu for more than 5 minutes, ignoring our requests... of course there is a good waitress but she is so kesian running everywhere in the shop as if she is the only waitress working. ai... sigh... since that visit in September... I think I wont visit Sushi Mentai very soon. ok... one of the reasons is I m not in Seremban... second is i just hope their service will be slightly better the next time I came in....

The amount I ate by my own (okla plus another person) during my second visit. cause that time is just so yummy with a lot of choices of sushi mentai, so fresh and the service is good.

From facebook, noticed that there is more and more Japanese restaurant opening in Seremban. The newest is Azuma and there will be another one opening real real soon. huh? is all the restaurant business so good. Maybe i should open one too (if i have the money).

From Auzzie From Ick

This post should be dated back more than a month. =DD but i conveniently post it until now as there is a lot of pending posts. T.T why I dont have time to post anything? PORTFOLIO!!!! The 20 plus pages thing is torturing me and it is going to continuously torture me for the next 5 months.

Lets talk something happy. =) These are some cute stuffs from auzzie that Ick posted to MH and she past them to me.

1. The WACK-E, RA-ZERS

That was how i pronounce it when I first see it. This is so so so so cute!!! I will never used them to erase anything, not like I will be erasing anything since what i do now is sliced it off everytime i wrote something wrong. =) arent them looks yummy? =D i like the hamburger one the most and you can actually detached them. (eg. the hotdog can be detached to 3 parts --> bread, hotdog, salad). =D

2. A Bookmark. More specific, A GOLD one.
Or the most specific. a golden COLOR one. Haha~ featuring some important buildings of Australia. I only recognize the Sydney Opera House (my geography is *shakehead*). Currently it is stuck in between my Anne Frank book which is on my books table in Seremban which I dont think i will continue to read very soon cause I just dont know why little girls wrote something like that.


The beautiful elongated postcards featuring the three sisters in auzzie.... (and also a little brother at the front? hahahaha. why cant it be a baby sister huh?)


and finally this very kawaii cup coaster with a bird on it. But the bright red love is more prominent. At first I read it "EMO". =___________= am i so emo that i deserve it? or is it because he wants me to be emo??
lol... anyway... 2-3 days later only i found out that it is actually "EMU" a bird. =P

Thanks for the awesome gift =) much much appreciated and loved~ =)

Rowena, from Thailand

Oh no. Rowena is not from Thailand. She is from Korea and she sent me this adorable postcard when she was visiting Thailand a few months ago. =) So kewtttttttttttt!!!

Thank you~

Greetings from Germany

From Kathrin Jauch showing a castle in Germany.... the name is Dragons Rock near Bonn. lol... =D +D

This castle looks as if it has a lot of stories to tell. =)

Sorry for the delay to upload and thanks for the beautiful castle. It looks like a castle which would likely appear in a stormy night with people running towards the cliff. Adventurous!!!

=)

Yours sincerely,

The things that my stomach dislike

 My mouth is non picky, it can accept nearly every kind of food. But my stomach is very picky. Sometime if I ate something that is not in its favorite list. It will throw tantrum causing me to have nausea, vomiting and dyspepsia.

Here is some list of food that I would really love to eat but cant. =( stupid stomach.

1. FRESH oyster
Yea. Such a waste I cannot eat this delicacy. The first time i ate them in a buffet, I end up with severe vomiting and nausea the next day. =( The other time after I having a oyster shot. I end up with another bouts of vomiting, fever. abdominal pain and nausea. =(  so bye bye FRESH oyster. The only way I can eat you is to cook you. =( no more juicy oyster with the taste of sea.

2. Fresh milk
 Powdered milk, condensation milk do not cause any problem to me.... but fresh milk yes. Especially I drink in big bouts and it is cold. The first time I drank a fresh milk... I finish the whole 1L carton in one day. At the particular night I have vomiting, diarrhoea and nausea. So now I can only drink hot milk or powdered milk. For fresh milk... I can only drink like half a cup each time only. =(

3. Tea

Chinese tea is ok... Only the red tea (eg. Lipton, BOH)... 3 years ago, I try drinking a whole cup of plain tea to keep myself awake but I end up with vomiting and dyspepsia for the 2 days. So I tell myself everytime I shall add some milk into it. Too bad... it doesnt work well even with the milk. Yesterday I have a cup of tea with a lot of milk. After that I have dyspepsia, nausea and vomiting... so good right?

Now... I must restrict myself from tea... =( my Lipton still have 22 tea bags left inside. Who would like to have it?

Just ate the medicine prescribed by a doctor... no more vomiting but I can still feel the dyspepsia and nausea. T.T super tired even after I slept for almost 2 hours in the afternoon... Maybe the drug is sedative.

Should finish up my first part of my portfolio... Please dont fall sick. Please dont fall sick. I just recovered from a cold. Dont make me fall ill again.

Post cards from Poland

 Jasme from Poland send me this postcard about a building.


Totally no idea where is this but it looks like it is full of horizontal escalator and the normal escalator. There is also a camp at the lower right of the postcards. oh. I saw a name. It is LeCentre Pompidou. Wow... OMG. I dont know this building is so famous. It is the biggest art museum and it also research on acoustic and music. wow... and it is located in Paris. lol. More info, you can press HERE.

And this is the back of the postcards!!!! so gorgeous!!! The stamps are really beautiful. The left top is about portrait sketching, the right top is more to abstract painting and the left lower is more towards water color painting stamps. This is the first time I received such awesome stamps cause Jaame loves stamps and he shares his love. =)

Thanks.

Yours sincerely,
Ying Xin
