Hajime, Still My Fav Japanese Restaurant In KL

Some may have thought it was going to be tough for an all Malaysian operated Japanese restaurant to survive for so long, and at premium prices to boot. Be prepared to spend RM180-250pp and you will have a triumphant dinner. I am there at least twice a month and my visit last Saturday was sublime.

This may look like a dirty/sexy picture to some, but actually is half the scallop as a sushi.

I initially though this was a waste of toro to be done in a soup, but this toro-leek broth presents a wonderful way to taste toro.

The very seasonal asago fish.

Extremely delicious snack, grilled stingray bones.

The shima aji was sooo sweet and fresh.

Possibly the best black sesame ice cream anywhere, with tons of freshly roasted black and white sesame seed, you can taste the essence of sesame through and through. Their pomelo sorbet is another you must have, its like the whole pomelo in one scoop and they even incorporated the sensual bitterness of pomelo skin into it as well.

Just look at the size of the scallops.
The hard to get hiramae. The hirame fin sushi, which is more crunchy.
The larger than normal sized prawns sashimi, before.
The after, break off the heads, pour some hot sake and suck/crunch the whole head - heavenly.
The huge Japanese oysters freshly shucked.

Taken from eatdrinkkl, I didn't have this recently, but did before and thought it should feature: the hedonistic salmon belly-foie gras with truffle oil.

Wow, the half scallop carries strong subliminal message, recommended dish for guys who want to score points with their dates... can definitely use this as a casual starter conversation ...that leads to ...later in the evening. wink wink

Might just do that. thanks you for the recommendation. Cheers

My Master, A National Treasure

REPOST:  Its been more than two years since I posted on my sifu. This is probably the most significant posting I had done thus far that does not involve business or politics. My circle of close friends and business colleagues have benefited significantly from his treatment.

My Master, Dr. Law Chin Han (from my iPhone)

Where shall I start? OK, just based on real life experiences of those who are close to me. The entire Tong family (Bukit Kiara Properties) absolutely swear that he is the master of masters when it comes to acupuncture (and dentistry as well). To me, you can probably find many great dentists, but to find a real Master in acupuncture, thats a whole different ballgame.

I am not big aficionado of Chinese medicine or acupuncture initially. I guess you have to go through the whole shebang to appreciate the real life changing effects from a master.

My business partner and very close friend went to him after 15 years of persistent gout problem, he will get his heavy attacks at least…

PUC - An Assessment

PUC has tried to reinvent itself following the untimely passing of its founder last year. His younger brother, who was highly successful in his own right, was running Pictureworks in a number of countries in Asia.

The Shares Price Rise & Possible Catalysts

Share price has broken its all time high comfortably. The rise has been steady and not at all volatile, accompanied by steady volume, which would indicate longer term investors and some funds already accumulating nd not selling back to the market.

Potential Catalyst #1

The just launched Presto app. Tried it and went to the briefing. Its a game changer for PUC for sure. They have already indicated that the e-wallet will be launched only in 1Q2018. Now what is Presto, why Presto. Its very much like Lazada or eBay or Alibaba. Lazada is a platform for retailers to sell, full stop. eBay is more for the personal one man operations. Alibaba is more for wholesalers and distributors.

Presto links retailers/f&b/services originators with en…

How Long Will The Bull Lasts For Malaysia

Are we in a bull run? Of course we are. Not to labour the point but I highlighted the start of the bull run back in January this year... and got a lot of naysayers but never mind:

p/s: needless to say, this is Jing Tian ... beautiful face and a certain kind of freshness in her looks and acting career thus far

I would like to extend my prediction that the bull run for Bursa stocks should continue to run well till the end of the year. What we are seeing for the past 3 weeks was a general lull where volume suddenly shrunk but the general trend is still intact. My reasons for saying so:

a) the overall equity markets globally will be supported by a benign recovery complemented by a timid approach to raising rates by most central banks

b) thanks to a drastic bear run for most commodities, and to a lesser extent some oil & gas players, the undertone for "cost of materials" have been weak and has pr…
