En Japanese Dining Bar

Facing Mohd Sultan road, En Japanese Dining is a casual izakaya serving a variety of Japanese food best for mass ordering and sharing. We did just that, so we could also try more dishes. To my surprise, all the food was decent if not slightly above average.

Kushimori ($17)
The friends loved the enoki mushrooms with bacon.

Mekajiki sashimi ($12)
Average

Grilled Shiitake ($4)
A little too salty.

Beansprouts with tofu and spam ($?)
This one had hints of mirin.

Chicken cutlet with tartar sauce ($12)
The friends say "can't go wrong with fried food".
Unagi fried rice ($13)
This one had generous amounts of unagi and well coated in a morish brown sauce.
Salmon sushi ($4.80)
The salmon sushi was surprisingly cheap and above expectations as well.

As this restaurant is a izakaya after all, the dishes are suitable for pairing with beer or sake. So naturally there is a wide range of alcohol too, and one can probably find a poison of choice to accompany the meal. En is a good choice to have a relax and chill time with friends.

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 iherb.com.  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!

Lunching at the Bodacious Cafe and Bistro

I seldom venture out to eat at the Biopolis' restaurants, learning my lesson early on that most of the eateries here are not worth the calories or the prices.
But I had a business need that day and found myself with a reservation at Bodacious. To be honest, no reservation was required as the restaurant was not packed even on a work day lunch hour. Yet we struggled to gain the service staff's attention.  After the initial hiccup, our food arrived fairly quickly. Chicken pesto salad for her and a tenderloin steak without fries for me.  
The chicken salad looked dry and not really appetizing; she finished about 3/4 of it.  


The tenderloin was small, stated 6.5oz.  It came up to about my palm size.  it was really tender, perhaps a tad too tender for me, as it borderlined mushy.  Perhaps it was sous-vide first? I don't know but I do know I didn't like that.

Final straw was when I ordered a skinny latte from the barista. He understood my order as the receipt indicated "…
