Inagiku - Jo Chirashi, originally uploaded by Skinny Epicurean.

This chirashi came highly recommended by Wey-lin and truely the foodie friend, she made sure I could try it for myself by setting up a dinner date. It turned out to be a really delicious midweek respite!

The "jo chirashi" ($60) was presented beautifully, in a large black bowl with a slanted rim. What you cannot see forming the foundation of this rice bowl was good quality sushi rice, topped off with a scattering of pinkish minced gari (pickled ginger), nori and sesame seeds. The raw seafood resting on top the rice was plenty. Since every single one was rather fresh, plump and sweet, it would be difficult to pin down a favourite. But the more memorable ones were the aburi hirame (flounder fin), kanpachi (yellowfin belly) and salmon belly. Inagiku's version of tamago did not have that cottony type of texture that I find disgusting, but it tasted just the way I like it - slightly sweet with a hint of savoury.

Sitting by the counter meant that we could possibly have the special fish soup instead of the standard miso soup. It was made with chunks of various fish and was naturally sweet. That rounded up our dinner and made 2 very full and satisfied foodies.

Thanks Wey-lin, for your wonderful company!

How do you juggle it all :( ?

I just feel that I don't have enough time - for the husband and  much less for myself!

During the workday, I make sure I try to go home on time so I could spend a couple of hours with A, and put him to bed. Then it's time to have my last pump at about 9pm before I just want to  zone out and crash.  The boy wakes up at least 3 times ever since his last leap when he learnt how to stand. Additionally, he fell really ill for the first time (i.e. antibiotics).  Prior to that, he cries 1-2 times but easily soothed with pacifier or with some milk. Because of these frequent interrupted sleep, the man and I took turns to fall ill as well, and it is difficult to recover. I still have the head colds and occasionally coughing spells.

On weekends, our schedule revolves around family events, and then I try to plan so that A can try to get a nap or 2 as well as to plan our routes throughout the day so I would end up somewhere comfortable to pump when I needed to.  Often the nap part fails,…

OOOh, new flavour!

I have been eating Quest nutrition protein bars for years! I love the taste and they are less guilty than the real deal.  The flavours are pretty spot on and they are available at  I recently shared about this site as well.

I eat at least one of them a day to satisfy that sweet tooth. My favourites so far are the cinnamon roll and smores.  But I'm excited that a new flavour has been launched and can't wait for the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip flavour to arrive!
