Sunday, May 31, 2015 2 Comments A+ a-

After the MInions photo session, I bring my hubby and kids to try this eatery place a japanese place with lots of sushi charging only RM3 per plate!! I ask the staff twice Is that true you are charging only RM3?.He explained that for every five plate and above everything will be only RM2.99per plate inclusive of GST and no service charge.
 Located at level 2 in front of Metrojaya and one floor above Sweet Chat.We hardly go up to this floor and never knew there are Japanese cuisines here.the menu is simple and quite variety every plate selling at RM3.48 with GST..so obviously two person dine in you will surely finished up with more than 5plates..so each plate they charge only RM 2.99.Reasonable for the price and choices of sushi here. No doubt the size will be smaller..which I don't mind because I can try more sushi from the menu.

The kids have a great time dining here looking at the sushi flow on the conveyor belt and they start putting in lots of ginger for me ( I am a truly ginger lovers). All the sushi is fresh and bite sized

Smooth silky chawanmushi


Hearty bowl of hot ramen, both my girls finished it all



Tuna Inari









The noodles choices are udon and ramen priced at RM9.9 per bowl and desserts between RM 3.90 to RM8.00.Refillable green tea is only at RM 1 each. I like the service here, friendly and attentive to our needs. SImple and quick lunch. Most important no long queue and yet I can enjoy my Japanese cravings of sushi peacefully.

How this movie influence them so much and when I talk about movies..I just get to know the Despicable Me will be in Cinema on 18 June 2015!..Can't wait to bring them to watch the movie together for the first time. Then, I receive an invitation for Disney Day Out @ Sunway Pyramid and I also saw Pavilion they have Spoonge Bob..Wow...so many places to check it out!
As I browsing the web, I saw this advertisement Minions Invasion that will take place at Midvalley and I read through the details here: They have

I told my kids we are going to see minions and they woke up early, dress up with their minions shirt and we reach early at 10.30am. To my surprise, the center court is so crowded at this hour. We quickly snap the photos and take turns. The kids are pretty exciting and my boy keep touching the minions..I hope they won't fall down easily. So cute and lovely deco..with minions in the small gardens.

Love this trio

Chair settings for family photo session..Just need to be patient and wait for your turns..It does looks good when people start to queue them selves and kind people offering us to take pictures on behalf for family pictures..No pushing around and there are plenty of minions in every corner..so Don't worry..you will find at least a small minions for your photo shot

So many Minions merchandise display from Metrojaya

We waited a while for the Minions Character Greet and Meet session that happens at 1pm sharp. There are two queues in the line. On the right side is the priority lane for HSBC card holders and after they have finished their queue line, Those on the left (opens for public) can start taking pictures with the cute minions..All together three minions standing at the center and  we just watch them from Level 1..my kids enjoy the YMCA music and start shouting Banananannaannanaa!!!..Crazy crowd and the queue looks mess up.
