Genre: Family/ Comedy

A movie about Hong Kong in the 70’s are bustling with opportunities. Running a restaurant with moutain high debt, that wanted to suicide himself till a fairy came down and talk to him. Talking back in those days what happen to the fairy had made him look thru alot of things after that as the fairy show him what would happen to him if he wasnt around. Then he realise that he should cherish all the things he have as he are left with great friends and family.

Another great movie about friendship and family value.

This round both Hong Kong movie are so much better with good story line compare to last year and few years back. Another great movie to watch.

Sushi Tei is one of my favourite Japanese restaurant compare to a few in our Malaysia market. It definitely falls on personal preference. I was firstly expose to this brand when I was visiting my friend in Jakarta, Indonesia 6 years ago and they know that I love food, this was one of a Japanese Restaurant that they told me, die die also must try. Back in those time, I have yet to start my food blogging as just enjoy my food whenever I travel.

Love the range that they offer and its pretty unique on the combination and rolls that they have. At that time, KL have yet so many different types of Japanese Cuisine that is similiar to this range except 1 in 1-Utama that always pack with people.

When I first saw this brand landed in Tropicana City Mall 2 years ago, I was very happy that finally it had landed in KL. Nevertheless the brand had establish itself well with a few outlets now available in Klang Valley and Penang. Of course what can we expect next? Try out their new menu for year 2013 onwards also at their latest outlet which is at Setiawalk, Puchong.

The outlet interior is no difference from the rest of the outlet.

Design of the new menu looks much better compare to the previous one. Choosing food would not be a problem as more pictures are in it now.

sushi tei (7)

Premium Yee Sang (for 8-10pax)@ RM68.80

sushi tei (8)

Premium really justify the price whereby it comes with cuts of salmon sashimi and prawns

sushi tei (9)

I must say that, I have tried a few yee sang for the past 2 weeks and I rate this is one of the top 2 in my personal list. If you do host any of your reunion dinner at home and lack of yee sang, this is one of a place to ta pau back. I am definitely getting 1 for my family. 🙂

Fresh ingredient and the special mixing sauce that pairs well with the fresh ingredient and did not over power it. A well balance with all the ingredient. REcommended~

sushi tei (10)

Ameabi Kaarage @ RM12.80, One of the signature dish that me and Ken always love to order or never miss is their Salmon Skin @ RM6.80. At the price of it we find it very reasonable, a great snack to start to get our mouth munching. Fried to crisp with every bite and do eat it while its serve fresh. You can choose to dip along with their mayo but we always love to bite it just like that.

sushi tei (11)

First dish from salad range already caught my attention with its chunks of tuna, salmon and squid on top of the salad. Sashimi Salad @ RM16.80. Something green and healthy, this is a appetizer that you shall  not miss. Not only filled with fresh sashimi, the kick that make the whole salad taste awesome is their very own dressing. Filled with light taste of vinegar, and chef special ingredient that make this dish gone in seconds. – REcommended~

sushi tei (12)

Another new item that are in the menu is Kaisen Ramen Salad @ RM28.80. To me it looks weird for the first time as I never have my ramen with salmon sashimi slices like that before. Its always with pork or chicken slice. Not only that, as there are 3 huge flab of crab meat that smack along on it too. The meat is cold and fresh, that once you had that slice you would want to finish the remaining 2 instantly.

Ramen texture is cook to the right texture and the sauce that make it pairs well. I think this would be best to share with another person.

Chuka Fukahire @ RM 6.80, Ika Geso Tataki @ RM 11.80 &  Ika Okura @ RM 5.40

We were lucky to be in the outlet at the right timing as usually fresh sashimi will arrage to most of the Japanese outlet on every Tuesday and Friday. We are here on Friday, therefore these are sashimi are perfectly fresh! Arima (4 kinds) @  RM59.80Tuna Belly, Yellow Tail, Sweet Shrimp, Raw Scallop

sushi tei (15)

Asama (5 piece)  -Tuna, Yellow Tail, Salmon@ RM35.80 

sushi tei (16)

There are also new rolls being introduce with Manguro Lover @ RM11.80,  Dynamic Roll @  RM16.80 & Lobster Salad @ RM12.80,. Among these 3, I prefer Maguro and lobster salad.

sushi tei (17)

Usually we have this with beef slice but this round they have added in another item Salmon Enoki Roll @ RM12.80

sushi tei (18)

Beef Teriyaki is a simple item that I prefer that the beef cubes cook till medium well, then I love mine added on with lots of garlic slices.

sushi tei (19)

Gindara Teriyaki is always one of my favourite that the cod being pan grill to perfect that its slightly crips on the outer layer yet the cod fish meat is well preserve that did not overcook. @ RM26.80, & Sanma Kabayaki @ RM14.80

sushi tei (20)

Gyoza @ RM9.80

sushi tei (21)

Golden Soft Shell Crab @ RM12.80

sushi tei (22)

Hotate Wasabi Mayo is not bad and if the wasabi mayo is a little more spicy then it would have been perfect.  @ RM8.80

sushi tei (23)

Ika Sugata Shio if the size of the squid is smaller or this size is nice to my liking, anything big I just cant take it. 😀 (just me) @ RM15.80

sushi tei (24)

Another item that I like is their Ikura Chawanmushi, very simple with salmon roe @ RM12.80Asari Sakamushi @  RM23.80Agedashi Tofu

sushi tei (25)

oh oh, when fried rice was serve, we all look down on it and why fried rice was serve after we had a awesome sashimi and rolls. This Choi Kara Fried RiceSpicy Fried Rice with Crab Meat  @ RM18.80 proves us wrong. Fried fragrantly, that is something simple and nice, written there spicy but its only mild spicy that bring the fragrance up. Those who need to have rice, then this is the new item that you must try. – Recommended~

sushi tei (26)

Another nice rice item for you is Tan Tan Don, comes with mince chicken meat, top with poarch egg and how I eat this dish is I poke the egg yolk then stir the whole bowl till its evenly mix. Then put in one bite into your mouth will be a well balance of yolky egg, slight salty and spiciness at the end. Something to entice your taste bud abit.  @ RM11.80

sushi tei (27)

Gyu Misoyaki @ RM15.80

sushi tei (28)

Special sauce to dip for the beef. I did it wrong in the first place and then I was taught properly by the waiter on how to get the best of this beef slice.

sushi tei (29)

First dip the fresh beef slice into the sauce then leave it on the hot plate for a quick turn. If you love yours medium well, then just flip both side about 8 second each and its ready to eat.

I did it wrong by did the beef slice then dip the sauce after that.

The difference is, did it the right way, the sauce will soak onto the beef slice and make it aromatic.

sushi tei (30)

Comes to desert I always thought my favourite would be green tea but this round their new product Yogurt Forest Berry @ RM7 steal the limelight. I prefer this over  Matcha Ice Cream & Sesame @ RM7

sushi tei (31)

Their new menu and new product being introduce, is something to look for when you visit this restaurant. You can try those that I recommend but again it comes down to my own preference. 😀 One of my favourite Japanese Restaurant. . .

Sushi Tei in Setiawalk is next to Roomates or nearby TGV cinema wing already.

Genre: Drama/ Thriller (The Tower)

When I was looking thru at cinema listing on what movie to watch, there is none interesting and starting to check all the trailer. The Tower capture my attention and decided to watch it without any expectation. Guess what?

Its a movie that every Korean celebrate Christmas and like all of us do especially on Christmas eve by throwing party at condo, hotels and restaurant. At this eve, with a grand celebration took place as the owner of the complex, Mr. Jo Sky Tower in Seoul decides to hold a “White Christmas” party for tenants and VIPs on Christmas Day, with helicopters circling above, sprinkling snow onto the party. While the party is in its climax celebration then strong wind blow into the helicopter that makes them out of control and crashes into the building and the building catches fire.

This 120 story luxurious landmark building complex being flame up from top and many VVIP got trap. Fireman to the rescue, people in the building trying to survive and . . . . .

A superb movie that you must watch, a great flow of movie line filled with laughter that will makes you jump out from your seat, heart pumping and tears drop. Never knew Korean production is so good now! At near 1 of the last scene on his act Captain of fire fighter makes me relate back Armageddon (one of my all time favourite movie) where he sacrifise himself for the rest of the team.

This movie also let me know that to be a Captain for fire fighter is not easy, need to understand so many terms, especially physics, think logically, act fast and many more. Respect the captain in this movie.

One of the best Korean movie I have watch so far.

The Tower Highly Recommended!!!!

Genre: Action/ Comedy

It has been a while since I last wrote my review for movie, work pilling up and blogging getting busier. CZ 12 also know as Chinese Zodiac is the latest movie from Jackie Chan or would say in another way will be his last action movie as his age is already catching up.

CZ 12 is about on a quest to find the 12 mystical zodiac bronze sculpture that had been taken away from the war back in 1860, that represents the 12 sign. Then Jackie Chan teams being hired by antique dealers to track down the remaining 6 missing pieces. France were JC’s first destination, where two of the bronzes are believed to be held in a private collection. Along the way, they have made  an uneasy alliance with Coco, a Chinese student in Paris, who is active in a global movement which campaigns for stolen cultural treasures to be returned to their homelands. Trail and after trail of clues landed them in a tropical island in South Seas where they believe the sinking ship had carried massive treasure to store the rest of the missing pieces.

Its a great to see JC back in action movie, with alot of unique and amazing stunts, of course his movie always filled with some part of humour. The mind blowing and get us glued to the scene with eyes open wide is when he fell into the cliff of volcano. That stunt is speechless where he try to protect the bronze head with his life.

Truly another great movie from Jackie Chan. – Recommended to watch as the whole 120 mins is very entertaining.

Genre: Adventure/ Drama

A movie that I have been waiting for when I saw the movie preview months ago, as another movie by Director Ang Lee knowing him that he will produce another remarkable movie. Life of Pi is base on a best selling novel.

Life of Pi is about a young guy who survive in a ship wreck disaster that hurled into an epic journey of survival in the Ocean. With a few survivor that bring them through the journey, and last standing with the Bengal Tiger with how Pi Patel build the connection between 2 of them during this surviving journey. Beyond that during his journey, he came out with a great adventure that no one would have believe in it.

I am so impress with this movie as you have to watch this movie with your imagination as the effect of 3-D just blast you away. During the movie I was like whoaaaaa. . Those effect of the movie really bring your imagination to another world. Unbelievable. Its a movie that is produce with some 3-D effects therefore its a must watch in 3-D. If you don not don bother to watch it.

One of the best movie with human 3-D effect after Avatar. A movie which is a MUST WATCH ~ Do watch their making of Life of Pi, you will be so impressive how much effort and after production that they have done.

Genre: Action

It has been quite a while I have watch Hong Kong movie which I nearly gave up hope on them. With the latest flick Cold War that do massive publicity before even the movie screening and huge superstar line up like Andy Lau, Aaron Kwok, Tony Leung and a few others for this movie had make them an advantage. Huge praise over these 2 new director had made the action film industry a U-turn.

A movie about Asia’s most safety country are to be tested. This round their system are to be tested as it hit mid night, the hijackers possess direct knowledge of police procedures hijack a fully loaded police van carrying the force’s most advanced equipment and five highly trained officers then make them disappeared off the grid. With high ransom demand from the kidnapers, with safety of the hostages or the reputation of the police are at stake, this new case called Cold War being named.

I must say, one of the best movie after long while that thrilled all of us with all mystery puzzle that keep you guessing who is the mastermind behind the cases. Then only realise its . .. . (watch yourself). Some of my friends are confuse on the movie, but just to let you know, there might be a part 2.

Its a must watch movie! Love how the director shoot the whole movie.. . Do watch it in 2-D (quite big difference without 2-D format)
