On Jan 8th, I was armed robbed in the office, at lunch time, by a lone ranger, wielding a meat cleaver, bought from Jusco at RM19.90. I know, because he left the cleaver plastic wrap on my desk. A few kicks to the groin, but apart from that, no real harm was done to me, physically, so I was thankful. He did get my new Samsung S3, and a couple of hundred ringgit.
Then on Feb 8th, I started seeing flashing lights at the corner of my eye, and fortunately I saw the eye doctor immediately, because it was the onset of a detaching retina, which he lasered back that very day. I wonder if the detached retina was a result of too much eye rolling.
We had the GE13, the results of which depressed me for an entire day.
And now, drum roll, this is after all a food blog, not some personal diary....my 2nd best meal for 2013.
Rakuichi, a gorgeous mom & pop set up, by a husband and wife, nestled in the ski slopes of Annapuri, Niseko Japan. Made famous by Anthony Bourdain, the place seats only 12, and the soba is made from scratch by the owner, and lovingly sliced into noodles. Our omakase menu for the night was simply divine.
HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone, may God bless you all richly, with good health, the company of good friends, and good food.
