Rainy Days

Random rainy day shots:

Been getting a lot of rain of late, in moderation is fine, but days on end with rain is unbearable.


Current thoughts (planning my next trip):
Madrid (+Segovia/+Toledo)- Sevilla - Rome - Florence;
Madrid - Berlin - Rome (+Florence?);
Madrid (+Segovia/+Toledo)- Berlin - Milan;
Madrid - Berlin - Milan - Rome;
Rome (+florence) - Madrid (++).
How to go about this....n_n; Some have very limited flight selection.. would prefer to fly in the morning....(which is why I squeezed Berlin in (24&25), but would only get 2 days max and I wouldn't want that.>_<). Hmm, also need to have more days in Spain since they will be issuing my Schengen....

Food Review :: Kenji-tei

My friend and I were here for brunch (as usual, we skipped breakfast...!)

Kenji-tei's menu, for something Japanese, their menu feels --to me, limited.

I loved the restaurant's ambience, however, and it was very well-lit.
The not-so-morning sun was hitting all the right places and a lot of gaijins were dining here as well (during the early hours, anyway).

The works they had on each table..

I had the Seafood Negi Ramen.. Spicy the way I liked it. XD

My friend had Pork in Teriyaki Sauce.

..with a tiny bowl of rice to go with it as well.

I absolutely loved my ramen, beautiful flavour, noodles were also made to perfection.

They don't call themselves Ramen house for nothing!
I only wished it had more meat in it.

My friend was contemplating whether to get some tempura, and i wanted to try the matcha cake. :3 We didnt though, ...maybe this calls for another visit. XD

We were very happy with the service, and I hope it stays that way! :D

Kenji-tei - @Greenbelt

Food 10/10 *Their ramen was marvelous.
Service 10/10
Presentation 9/10

Great food, wonderful ambience, I only wish they had more items on their menu! .. was also left a little hungry after my ramen...xP

Character-themed Japanese Curry

More japanese goodies I found at the local supermarket!

Character-themed curry! :D House brand's curry is quite good.

This other brand I haven't really tried...


I ended up not buying them... they were the last ones on the shelf... And I was a little bothered with how badly-handled the boxes were (dents/creases/and it was a little dusty).
