This was my reaction when i received the email of invitation to be an ambassador for Cool Japan!
It's an government-funded initiative by Japan Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI) to share Japanese contents to the rest of the world! It's basically just to 发扬光大 about the overflowing awesomeness of Japan -WHICH I ALREADY EXPERIENCED AND LOVEEE!!! ^.^V
So METI work with this superbly nice bunch of people from Revamp and selected a group of key influencers from all over the world who love everything about Japanese =D
One of the main highlights for this trip is to attend a launch event for "100Tokyo" it's a collaboration between Google Japan and METI. If you love to look at Japan from different point of view, please feel free to check out 100Tokyo website! Lotsa cool pictures and stuff you'd never seen! =)
I'd get to share about that with you soon! =D Too many pictures cannot squeeze them in one post!
Soooo.. This year 2014 it is officially my duty to share with you just how AWESOME Japan is!!! Not like i haven't been doing that already lah. Hahaha.

And.. BLOGGER FROM MALAYSIA!!! Hahah! CHEESIE LAH! I missed her so much!!! Especially when she have this baby bump and this is the first time we can touch it!!!
WEI BABY?!?! WHAT DID YOU SAY?!?! =DDD Haha! Okay don't play dee! Food time!
This is everyone's first dish! Made fresh on the spot!!!
Our first sushi! CAN YOU PLEASE SEE HOW GINORMOUS THIS SCALLOP IS!!!! It's even thicker originally but it's been sliced down the middle and then it filled 3/4 my palm hahah!
Wendy and i asked for aburi (slightly torched) for all our sushi cox i can't take raw food and she tried the raw style the other time and loved it but wanna try how is it torched haha. So we had kinda of a different menu from the rest ^.^ The chefs were so dedicated they remember all the details of everyone's specification. Some say don't want onion, some don't want wasabi, some don't want alcohol, all these little details they will remember!!! I am very impressed!
Stella from Indonesia =) She's funny she drank a little bit and turned super red and happy hahaha!
UNI!!! Sea urchin! I was told not to try it outside of Japan cox it can taste horribly wrong like vomit =XXX So actually i damn skeptical but Wendy tried it at Sushi Koh and swears by it. So i tried!!!
SO THIS.. IS MY FIRST UNI..
AND I LOVE IT!!! It's chilled and taste kinda like sweet and is super creamy like this?!? But the texture is like a melty gummy bear i'd say!!! It burst into sweet cream in your mouth! It's so good that i really will never dare spoil the perfection of image and taste anywhere else but Japan haha.
Chef preparing our next dish =))) So focused!
SOOOOO GOOOOD!!!! The prawns omg. The abalone omggggg!!! I am hungry T.T
My super yummy prawn!!! Fresh and naturally sweet~
One of my favourite dish!!! Crab meat and fresh egg yolk i think! Just so flawless this combi!!!!

Hello you want some of these that melts in your mouth?
Fatty belly of a fish.. And i thought this was as melty as fish can get..
Until i tried this fish omgggggggg.... IT IS THE BEST I EVER HADDDD!!!! SO SUPER MELTY AND FAT AND OMGGG. Cheesie say if i ever try the best cut of beef.. It'd taste something like that.
