Sakae Sushi

Hubby and I are a fan of Japanese food. I've been wanting to try out a restaurant in The Curve, so we decided to have our lunch there. The restaurant is called Sakae Sushi

Hubby is starving, so while waiting for his Yokubari Gozem set to arrive (See picture below), we decided to try out a few sushi plates that is placed on the conveying belt/ train, except there was none! I mean, there were a few on the train, but they are all the of same type. This is totally opposite as compared to Sushi King which place various types/ selections. All you have to do is wait for the one that you like, pick it out from the train, and enjoy! That way, you don't have to wait too long, and just choose, pick, choose and pick. You don't lose your momentum!

Since there were almost no sushi available for us to pick, we place our order. And I was shock that we had to wait nearly 45 minutes for our sushi to arrive. It was just a freaking sushi! I wonder what took the chef so long to prepare it. And there were not many other customer dining there at that particular time. I had to call the waiter and tell her that if my food did not come in the next 5 minutes, I like to cancel it and leave. heh!

Look at the almost empty train. Might as well you don't put it there! it defeat the purpose.

One view of the restaurant. It also has an outdoor area. Notice the computer screen at each of the table? Supposedly all you have to do is browse their menu on the screen and just click on your pick, and the selection will go straight to the kitchen. I find this very convenient as opposed to the waiter waiting and tapping their pen impatiently for you to browse the menu, decide and order your food. But sadly, it doesn't work. I meant it literally, my computer screen doesn't work... hahahha. So we have to opt for the conventional approach. Apa la, konon nak canggih sangat.

Breaded chicken cutlet with chicken curry (I find this weird, Japanese set with curry??), Grilled Scallop (this taste absolutely delicious!), Salmon Terriyaki,Steamed rice & Miso Soup.

My spicy Salmon Roll, trust me, it is spicy. To me it taste weird, sushi/roll that has been Malaysianize.. Will never order this again, ever.

Our verdict: Food is good, but service sucks! Hubby totally banned the place and say we will stick to Sushi King for our next Sushi trip

Calling all bloggers!

Everyone with a blog (personal, music, lifestyle, tech, etc) is invited to write an article about a band. The band plays jazz electropop and their videos have amassed over 400,000 views on YouTube alone.

• The article should at least be 400 words and should contain a link to the band’s website.
• Each blog you plan on posting the article to should contain at least 30 previous posts to be eligible for this task.
• Each qualified blog may post an article about the band ONLY ONCE; however, if you own several blogs, you may post one article in each of them.
• If you don’t own a blog but know someone who does, no sweat! YOU CAN ASK OTHER BLOG OWNERS TO PUBLISH YOUR ARTICLE; if they do, you are still qualified for the job.
• YOU ARE ONLY ALLOWED TO PUBLISH AN ARTICLE ONCE. If you have published an article in one of your blogs, don’t repost it in another blog; you will have to write another article if you want to post on another blog.
• Details about the band (information, website, pictures, etc) will be provided. No need for extensive research as the material and websites will be provided. All you need to do is be creative! :)
• The article can be a promotional write-up that introduces the band, talks about their music, and gives news about their upcoming album, OR it can be a music review. As for the writing tone, you can be as personal or as professional as you want, as long as all articles are positive and aimed at encouraging readers to listen to the band. In other words, there is no specific format you need to follow; just write to your heart’s content!
• NO PLAGIARISM; NO DUPLICATING OF ARTICLES. Articles will be checked using DupeFreePro and Copyscape. I will not tolerate anyone who breaks this rule.
• Lastly, the assignment is ongoing right now, which means there is no deadline yet. You can take all the time you need. Of course, the more articles you get published quickly, the more you earn fast!

• For each article successfully published in a blog, $1.20 is awarded via PayPal. You can publish as many articles as you want, as long as the article-to-blog ratio is 1:1 (that is, one article only per blog).
• Payment is made after every article, or after every batch of articles – say, every after 3 or 5 articles – depending on your preference. If you plan on publishing just 1 article, then you shall receive payment right after it has been published. If you plan on publishing 5 articles but want to get paid every after one published article, that’s also fine. Others prefer getting paid after batches of 5 for convenience. I am flexible and will entertain any arrangement.

The task is easy and fun. The article will also help drive new readers to your blog, considering the thousands of fans the band now has. Also, you get access to great tracks of the band for free! That’s the easiest $1.20 you’ll make as a blogger. :)
