Teppanyaki at Seryna Mon Cher Ton Ton, Tokyo

Located at Roppongi, this seems to be a popular teppanyaki restaurant for both businessmen and tourists alike.  

We ordered one of the sets. Which had a series of courses of food. 

Starters: changes seasonally but this time I had sweetest crab with boiled pea sprouts. 

Next is sashimi of tuna. Not the best kind but suitably fatty and rich. 

Then we start on the teppanyaki with lobster. 

The lobster is diced and served with a bit of miso (liver of the lobster). 

In between we also had a mizuna salad and cooked vegetables. 

Last course for me was a whole abalone because I didn't take the beef as the rest did. 

The beef / abalone is served with teppan butter potato and fried garlic chips. 

We also had a fried rice with silver fish, soup and pickles to finish off the meal. 

Dessert is always served at the lounge area. Tea or coffee is your choice. 

The trio are: Apple sorbet, opera cake and strawberry with vanilla cream. 
Not a cheap meal but certainly of good quality and experience. ¥15,750 per pax.

3−12−2 Roppongi, Minato, Tokyo

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!

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 "…
