Photo Hunters - Colourful

I went to a Japanese Restaurant last night to have my favourite sushi. My appetite gets stimulated when the colourful dishes were served before me. Orange-coloured fresh salmon sashimi. Yummy avocado and prawn sushi rolls. Even my favourite vegetable dish, Kakiage (Crispy Vegetable Fritters) was a colourful assortment of vegetables cut into strips and fried in a crispy batter.

I can only eat sushi on Fridays and Saturdays. Why?? Because I have been trading shares, I've turned superstitious. hehehe....

Note : sushi rhymes with the Chinese dialect su si, which means 'lose everything'! So how to eat sushi on trading days? Mention that word, you get a whack on your head from me!

  10. Eastcoastlife: Thank you for your compliments on my blog...

    Ok, now I have learnt not to mention sushi on trading days.

    But I don't even know when are the trading days. Ok, since you say you can only eat sushi on Fridays and Saturdays, then I shall infer that trading days are on the rest of the week??

    Welcome.

    Oh yes, at this Japanese restaurant, the dishes are charged according to the colour of the plates. Red plates are more expensive.

  23. That is some very colorful sushi and that's just so funny that you won't eat it on other days because of your superstition! I have a lot of superstitions myself, though, so I can totally relate!

    Thanks for visiting earlier, have a great weekend!

  32. It looks like a restaurant at Marina Square that I brought my family to. Can't quite remember the name, but they do have this sushi dragon dish which had those avocado slices and fried prawn in that photo you showed.

    I love sushi and Japanese food, but I usually stay away from salmon, preferring instead other seafood like Tuna, Ark Shell, Sweet Shrimp, Hamachi, Red Snapper, and so on. Yummy!

  39. Hi linda!
    hehehe.... the Chinese especially, has a lot of superstitious beliefs. When too many things happen to me and I have no explanations for them, I'd rather believe in the supernatural. :)

  47. Hi Captain Picard,
    The Japanese are really smart people. Their inventions keep me in awe. I not only love their food, I love watching their movies and TV dramas. Most of the electronics I use are Japanese brands. Japanese culture is similiar to the Chinese but the Japanese are much more cultured and civilised. :)

  48. Hi cool insider,
    You're another sushi lover!! :)

    The Japanese restaurant at Marina Square is either Waraku or Sushi Tei. Both restaurants serve yummy food. :)
