Tokyo Stock Exchange
We arrived on time in Tokyo Stock Exchange, but because the security on the front door need to check us one by one before entering to the Tokyo Stock Exchange, made us 5 minutes late from the schedule. Tokyo Stock Exchange is very quiet and only a few people were there. It has a very unique architecture design, full of glass and it has a big display of the price’s stock. The employee explain to us about how the Stock Exchange works, and some theory and application if we want to invest in stocks. After the tour, we had a simulation about Stock, and guess what? I rank number 2 ! I was shocked at myself, because I didn’t really know about stocks, I just read what’s on screen and go with my instincts. Guess I really have a good instinct, am I not ?
许留山's curried fishballs, cuttlefish and radish! Love this, curry wasn't that spicy though but super tasty! Wanted something hot for supper so I got Taro Paste with Chestnut. Not the healthiest but definitely very flavourful! Love how it was filled with chestnut (like those peeled packet chestnuts you get outside) and soft yam cubes. Sinfully good! Damage (cant remember price for Yu Dan): HKD35 Rating: 8.5/10
A day trip to Macau wasn't quite as exciting as I thought it would be but it was still an interesting way to spend a day. Macau is called the Las Vegas of Asia. I don't agree much with that. I walked through casino after casino, they were all the same. Beautiful, but B-O-R-I-N-G. Now, I will say, we walked through one of the casinos that I’d not heard of before – the Galaxy – and the interior of it was all glitz and glamour and it had a spectacular Crystal Lobby that rivaled anything I’ve seen in Vegas. But, all in all, I was disappointed by Macau, it was not at all what I expected.
Our favorite sushi restaurant in New York City is Kura, which is located in the East Village. The storefront is non-descript, without any signs indicating you have reached your destination. As you walk down the street, looking for the correct address, keep your eyes open. The door for Kura is located behind drape that is decorated with an almost complete circle. The unadorned exterior matches the minimalistic interior. Inside, you will encounter an extremely straightforward sushi bar. There are 12 seats at ths sushi bar and a single four-top. Although Kura is very intimate, the atmosphere is unpretentious. The restaurant is tiny, but this lends itself to an incredibly thorough and personalized dining experience. Because of this, we got to chat with Chef Norihiro Ishizuka and his staff throughout the meal. The chef and staff hail from Michigan and we are so thankful that they decided to move and open this restaurant in Manhattan. Chef Ishizuka makes you feel like you are a guest in his home. Kura is all about the sushi. The sushi is extraordinary and the price for the omakase style meal cannot be beat. The meals start at $65 per person! Seriously! Omakase starting at $65 in NYC?! It’s true! What makes this even more insane is that the quality and variety of the fish is exceptional. We’ve been to countless sushi restaurants and Kura offers the best all-around experience for the price. If we get a craving for sushi, this is the only place we want to visit in NYC.
