~Angel~ in Uji (May 3, Pt 2)
I am soooo pissed off now!! A whole nice long post that I've written... POOF!! All gone, because of this stupid blogger error.
Urghh... have to rewrite all again. No mood already. I'll make it into a shorter one.
Before that, thanks a lot 5xmom, for the nice Luo Han Zai that you put in Penang Faces for fish fish. ^_^ Hey, go to see it... especially Dennis and Phan, you will love it too. ;)
Ok, it's my turn to trigger your appetite. :P
After a nice time in Uji with Angel, we went to Kyoto Station to meet Sylvia and Patrick. Patrick would only meet us an hr later due to his 18sx exploration in Hieizan. :P
While waiting for him... The 2 girls got there daily drug - coffee. Fish Fish get my Sweet Sweet Circle from Mr Donut, which eventually triggered the 2 girls to get one too. :P
We were sitting under this splendid building... chatting and munching.
Kyoto Station Building, a place that is my favorite for its magnificent design.
Later, when Patrick caught up with us, we decided to bring Angel have a walk across the Skyway. A long long walk that hang on the air. Another great design.
In the middle, we have platforms that prepared for having a good sight of the Kyoto Tower that stands proudly opposite it. It was nothing in height if compared to Twin Tower - KLCC Suria or the latest Taipei 101... but it is the tallest buidling in Kyoto, the symbol of Kyotojin pride.
Right, what were we doing in Kyoto Station?
TRA LA LA!! For picking up this Nissan March that we rented for our real trip for the next day. We booked it thru the Seikyo in my university... and we only paid 5040 yen (Rm178) for the car itself for 12 hr rental time. However, we were given extra 27 hr for free. A total 39 hrs for owing the car. Woo Hoo!! With extra charge on 2-day insurance, 2100 yen that excluding the supplying of petrol... it was still a very reasonable offer.
Actually I've always wanted a GREEN MARCH... It always makes me very envy every morning when I past through a GREEN MARCH in my neighbourhood. However, I'm satisfied with this white March. In fact, now I have the license, even though I'm still as broke to own one for myself... I think I will try to rent different car brand from time to time to feel the differences. Ok, Toyota is out... I've been driving Toyota for years... My family is Toyota fan. So, dun think I need to try on that. :P Ah wait, maybe the Hybrid System may worth a consideration. ;)
The back of this March. Cute or not? ^_^
We requested car navigation system for it when we booked it. It was for free. By search and play with the system, we managed to escape safely from the very congested street at Kyoto Station area with a doki doki heart. Phew! A safe arrive to my University area.
We decided to eat in Madang - an "Italian" restaurant nearby our school that also offer Pibinba. Weird huh~
It is compulsory for each customer to order at least one drink. This is because this restaurant is famous with its "super pasta".
So, what is so special about the pasta?
The rule goes :
For a 500g of pasta, it is for around 1000yen.
However, for a pasta volume up to 1000g, you just have to add 300yen. Which is a very good offering for students to eat in big group.
We decided to order this Tomato Chilli Basil Sauce 1.5mm spaghetti with Mushroom Topping. Usually, when a restaurant in Japan says the food is spicy, it is always disappointing. Beware if you have the same concept on this one. I would say it is one of the most delicious spicy dish that I had in Japan. A spiciness that will make one addicted.
Kekeke... Here we started with the Malaysian way for eating a pasta. (Really?? Nah~ I made this up. :P)
Actually, it was from the inspiration of Lau Sang... a practise by some Chinese during Chinese New Year... for the symbol of prosperity.
Lau Lau Lau... we were ready for a good feast.
The taste? Fantastic. Will give a good cure for those who miss spicy food so much.
We also ordered a chili mayonnaise prawn pizza. Another great dish that should not be missed in this restaurant. Btw, this restaurant also offers Pibinba (Korean mixed Rice)... that why I use "Italian". :P But we didn't order that, no space to fill up anymore.
The whole thing cost around 1000 yen each for us.
Left to right : Angel, Patrick and Sylvia.
Ar~ the Shiawase 3... with Pan Pan Stomach. *burp*
Ah~ so glad I finished the post. Tsukareta!!
