mid november 2008 – after dance practice, went over to cynl’s place for dinner.

the girls were helping out in the kitchen. needless to say, i escaped the chore by pretending to take pictures *sheepish look*

later, after passing the camera over to felix/eugene, i picked up the guitar and started strumming… G-A-D over and over and over and over and over and over… *picture courtesy of eugene.

an anonymous other also escaped the chore as she, too, was tired. *picture courtesy of felix

for the sushi filling, we had cucumber, salmon, seaweed and… what else? can’t remember. memory failing me. roe for the topping.

_MG_9317
first, we filled 2/3 of the seaweed wrapping with japanese rice. then, we placed the filling in the middle of the rice.
_MG_9310
then, gently but firmly, we rolled the seaweed and all, careful to ensure that the filling was in the smack centre of the roll.
_MG_9319
finally, we cut the roll, beginning at the centre, and moving to the sides. voila, our very own, homemade sushi!

the whole japanese experience was completed with shochu, which was brought back all the way from japan by elaine.

_MG_9307
shochu is an alcoholic beverage of japan, most commonly distilled from barley, rice or sweet potato. this particular shochu is 25% alcohol by volume. we had it with lemon as well as lime. personally, i love it with lime!

_MG_9330
elaine, the alcohol supplier. arigato gozaimasu!
