Just a quite de-brief about our all u can eat jap experience. in a word, it was disapointing. the reason why the place was booked out for three weeks is because it was only big enough for about 3 or 4 tables. the menu selection was small, and they only had the very very basics. it seems like they are more a takeaway place rather than a jap restaurant. they did however have a tasty beef and asparagus salad. Some of their items were quite tasty, but simple. the sushi was disapointing. the sushi rice had been over refidgerated and was a bit hard, some of the sashimi pieces appeared to be off-cuts. the tuna was too lean, and therefore of the tasteless variety. their seared tuna salad was nice, and it seemed that the tuna in the salad was of a better quality.

still didnt stop us from stuffing ourselves silly and having a generally fun time.

all up, two stars for surf n turf.

The long drought

yes indeedy. i doubt anyone even looks at this blog anymore! in fact, i was surprised that it hasnt been taken down due to 'inactivity'.

Perhaps the inactivity of the blog is a representation of my own 'activity'? i guess i've just been too busy and occupied with various things to post here. or perhaps my mind has become... dull (?) ... or inspired, such that i dont really have any sparks of genious to write down (have i ever?).

its been another three months of work. and i have noticed that in this year i've been thinking abt work a lot. getting ahead, and getting promoted is often on my mind - tho i seem to do very little about it. we have had an influx of new graduates, i classify them into groups:

1. i like them, think they will do well
2. i think they are idiots
3. i think they think they will do well and are trying too hard (ie. i find them annoying)
4. i dont know their names.

Despite my constant thinking of what i can do to excell at work, i dont really find myself doing anything all that wonderful. hopefully things will change.

tonight we are going to this japanese call u can eat place in brighton called "surf n turf". cant wait.

only 4 hours to go!
