Here’s a yummy post!
Things we ate last December:
Ichigo. I basically binged on Ichigo every day until cannot. Because once we get back to Singapore, everything would be 3 times the price XD.
Usually at the ichigo section in supermarket they also sell condensed milk (in a tube) and recently a new way of eating it is with sweet milk powder for extra calcium. I tried but I still prefer eating Ichigo on its own! Japanese strawberries are too sweet to be laden with more sweet stuff.
Snoopy and Pon de Ring! I hate donuts (so oily and the sugar coating is just… gross) but Mister Donut is the only donut I’ll eat. Plus it’s too cute!! Pon De Ring is totally not oily at all! It has a mochi mochi (spongey/chewy) texture and I love!!
Tamago-In Onigiri and Ichigo mixed juice and… just ichigo.
I see that Baked Cheese tart shops are popping up everywhere in KL but most of them are not baked but faked lol. Hokkaido Baked Cheese Tart is not from Hokkaido (it’s by Secret Recipe) and Tokyo Secret’s only secret is that it’s not at all from Tokyo (it’s from Hong Kong).
This. Is the real deal. I have yet to try BAKE in Singapore, does it taste the same as the ons in Japan?
Early Christmas Cake
Every year our family will get a simple ichigo shortcake for Xmas.
This time it is Ichigo tart, you can inject strawberry sauce into the cake 😛
I don’t know why but I was craving Siew Mai so badly! This is a 4-in-1 set: Original, Kurobuta, Ebi and Scallop siew mai. Yums!
Went into this Izakaya after we discovered that the garlic steak place we badly wanted to go was closed.
Motsu-ni (braised cow insides)
Porcini risotto and assorted ajillo!
Ajillo seems to be a very trendy food in Japan now. I tried making it at home with the oven (I don’t own any skillets) and it’s easy and super yummy!
The 小瓜竟然 fell asleep half way through dinner lolol.
Sea God Ramen
Kaijin (literally Sea God) ramen again cuz I missed those huge hamaguri so much. That’s Junya watching live hamaguri in the tank.
HAHAHA CANNOT SEE ANYTHING. This is for the danna. Instead of buns it’s all lettuce!
The classic 4 Japanese Chinese food: Subuta (our Ku Lou Yok), Ebi Chili (Sweet and Spicy Prawn), Chinjyaorosu (青椒肉丝) and stir fry seafood with broccoli.
Our regular dinner place with NALU staff. Gomi san was showing Junya new PPAP video.
Dejima san was like, let’s count your hair. lolol
Gomi san & Sakura
“Huh I can see mama sitting over there. So who… is the one holding me??”
Raw cow something something. Forgot what it was haha.
And then my shopping haul! A bit bohliao but don’t care, including all anyway 😛
One of my fav snack, now in Cookie and Strawberry edition!
Calbee Furugura, possibly the yummiest cereal ever. I was browsing some Japan daigou app and this item seems to be one of the most requested item for daigou!! I was wondering why so I bought it. And then I got so addicted omg. In Singapore you can get it from Tampopo!!!
Shimajiro Vegetable Boro
Baby stock in powder form!!
Nabe cube – hotpot stock!! Tried it once and loved it!
Apparently this cup noodle was voted the most 想吃 (want to eat) in the world, and it is a representative from Hong Kong -Hot and Spicy Seafood.
Then I got Junya a Nissin cup noodle Tomica too 😛
Rilakkuma wet wipes.
100 yen shop in Japan!!!!
Non-oil, non-salted tuna to make baby food.
I think I mentioned before but this Glico butter cookie is so good??! This is the caramel version. Super yummy too!!
Seasonings (Singapore also can buy but much cheaper to buy in Japan!)
Kakkonto is a traditional medicine to treat common cold, just in case! Since I can’t take medicine now cuz I’m still nursing Sakura.
New iPhone case!
Shoes for Sakura since Junya also has a pair! 😛
Ok that’s all! Rushing off to cook dinner haha.
I love reading your Japan posts, Cheesie! Blog more! 🙂

Thank you! I will 🙂
May I know which supermarket is good for buying the stuff you showed on your blog?
I will be going to Tokyo soon and staying at the Toshimya region, will appreciate any recommendations for omiyage. I was told you can get some affordable ones at chain supermarkets?
You can easily get them from any supermarket!! && And yes chain su-pa is the best!
Hi Cheesie!!! So stoked that you’re now based in sg!!! I stock up all the daily necessities and kanzume whenever I go back to jp too, everything there now is indeed cheaper and of better quality! 😁 Btw you can buy the tube seasonings, shouga, ninniku, karashi etc all at daiso!! Can try going to sakuraya fish mart too, some of their stuffs are cheaper than meidiya (eg. Ebi/tobiko, takowasa,sashimi) and they’re all kept very fresh too! There’s also the midtown mart at Marina Square selling Japanese snacks at a cheaper price. 😁
Oh yes!! Isn’t Daiso the best my god. I can literally live there LOLOL. Thanks for sharing Sakuraya! I never knew about this :))) And oh, Emporium Shokuhin, yes sometimes I go there 🙂
Thanks for the reply Cheesie!! Yes daiso is a life changer 😭 Even their tsuyu actually taste better than some other brands sold at supermart 😅 Yep sakuraya has lotsa frozen stuffs good for cheat days too haha Emporium shokuhin is a little expensive though, you can check this out: https://m.facebook.com/Midtownmart/ ! It’s a little hidden on the second level of MS. Probably one of the cheaper places to get jap snacks here!
BAKE quality in Singapore varies.. sometimes the crust too soft.. JAPAN BEST! And I’ve finally went to Japan after stalking you for like 10 years.. And I’m just tear-ing everywhere i go.. the air just feels so “purified”.. ah…. now i’m poisoned to go back to japan!!
Indonesians getting crazy over Pablo cheese tart. I tried the Hokkaido one, nais but a tad too sweet for my liking. Would love to try Pablo (legit from Japan they say) but the price.. T___T and the queue.. T___T
