A Japanese Fare

 Image:1 Qhaty, Hafidz and little Naqip. He is a big boy, really! Remember the drama others went through when he made his presence felt? (here)

 Image:2 Little Naqip, Madeleine (their Filipino maid) Sarah Ayesha and Shadah, my loving wife

 Image:3 My grandsons Kimie and Nabil

 Image:4 My other grandson Norman

 Image:5 The tempura that I had. This was after the sushi that I had earlier

 Image:6 The tappenyaki which I thought was less filling until I saw the amount after the frying.

Image:7 The sharks fin and soba noodles and ice kacang at the back.
There were a host of other dishes left untouched. Otherwise I would need to be carried down to the car for the journey back.


Note: My elder son Hafidz and his charming wife Qhaty invited us for lunch today. ‘We’re going Japanese buffet. It’ll be at the same venue that we had before’ they said. This is an ‘eat as much as you can joint’.

I remember what happened the last time. I was naughty the last time. I ate as much as I could and was breathless with a full tummy when we left . I told myself  I would be less naughty today and would exercise utmost care not to overeat.

Japanese buffet
Eat as much as you can eat
It’s a tall order

Would I be naughty?
Tendency is to do so
Must control myself

No sushi with rice
Other offerings would do
These are less filling

I was still naughty
Japanese food was much fun
I could not help it

  1. Japanese is the best, and Indian vegetarian. I enjoyed your family pictures. They brought warmth.

    1. oceangirl,
      Thanks Ma'am! Japanese food can appear scanty but filling,really. Real Indian vege is hard to come by, even in KL.

  2. I have no self-control at "all you can eat' affairs. Must avoid them or succumb. There is no in between.

  3. Sounds like with all you can eat
    You sure want to make it a treat
    Once to your seat
    How all you can eat remains in business is a feat

      No wastage and all seats taken

  5. Hi Hank ~~ Love those Japanese buffet pictures. You can invite me any time, I would like to come! But if I did I would have the problem your poet was having and probably would gain at least five pounds.

  6. Oh, I would love to have Tempura. Mmm. And I love sushi, also. And miso soup.
    We'll just have to visit you and your lovely family some day, Hank!

  7. Very nice pictures of your family.

    I ate some Japanese food this week too. But it wasn't an all you can eat. Nevertheless, I ate plenty, felt naughty and enjoyed it thoroughly.

    1. That's great Myrna! Nibbling into Japanese food is an art itself. Best done by choice like you did, unlike an 'eat all you can' situation.
