Normally, I just go to work at Kawasaki which is one station away from where I am staying. But, today, I have to go Shibuya (one of the station in Yamanote Line) for some training. It only need 45min to reach Shibuya normally, but today I spent 5hours to reach there!!! I got out from dormitory at 7.30am, but reached my training center at 12.30pm..... (-_-!!!) I was totally wore out when I reached...... @_@
The things became worse because....
--------my IPod ran out of battery!!! (oh my god, i dont know how i past the time.... )
Then the worst is....
--------one the way, my handphone battery also gone!!! (I was thinking to take photo and video of: the umbrella "flip over" and flip back again... girls walking against the strong wind with a hand holding on their skirt... people sitting at the staircase and all around the station... people "squeeze" themselves into a "sardin train"... but i could not.... )
what a BAD DAY....

you will see this once you enter the shop.... RASA MALAYSIA means "Taste of Malaysia" in Malay . ラサマレーシア はマレー語では”マレーシアの味”という意味です。
the arrangements of the shop... still not bad. :)
the meal started with drinks... we had Teh Tarik, Lychee, Cin Cau Syrup (Sirap), and Bandung. Teh Tarik is kind of teh which is very common in Malaysia, (i guess) it became famous after our first astronaut attempted to make Teh Tarik in Space... Cincau is something like jelly in black colour and Syrup is the juice of Rose which is a favourite drink for Malay people. Bandung is Syrup+milk. The best goes to Teh Tarik, it really taste like Mamak-made! (made me more home sick after drank it).
before the war of the meal starts, we took photo with the drinks...
the appettizer is the crunchy Spring Roll with the Thai sauce.
Sate (サーテ) is like Yakitori (焼き鳥) in Japan but it made by traditional spices and with the Peanut sauce. It really taste like Kajang Sate(the most famous Sate Shop in Malaysia)!!!
Char Kue Tiow is fried mee similar as Yakisoba (焼きそば) but the taste is different. I dont know how to describe the taste but it really tasted like home-made... dont miss it if you go there!
Malacca Hai Nan Chicken Rice with the Ball Rice (added with sesame oil i guess) and the White Chicken. Even the sauces are good!
Claypot Chicken Rice with the mushroom and chicken... this i think my Dad has better recipe... hehe...
Santan Chicken Curry which is spicy but tasty!
I am kind of missing the Wantan Mee at Banting, so i ordered Water Wantan. It is like GyouZa (餃子) which the meat is wrapped.
Dessert time!!! デザート！Mango Pudding, im not sure is Malaysia famous for this, but i like Pudding. :)
Lastly, Fried Banana. This is a special-made fried banana which invented by the shop. The cold and soft banana is wrapped by the crunchy and hot skin. I never tried such fantastic banana even in Malaysia!! haha... 美味しかった！
Make sure you make reservation and print the coupon(15% off) before you go. First time we went, without any reservation and we waited for 2 hours, the worse was we stil couldnt get a table!!!! Rasa Malaysia --->http://r.gnavi.co.jp/fl/en/g275501/

Before I continue about the trip, let`s have a flashback for the orientation, it happened 4months ago... I had never publish anything about my classmate yet! ^^ (was busy that time... hehe) In a class about 40 Japanese, I was the only `alien` and it was an unforgetable experience.... felt like very useless, and I totally couldnt communicate with them coz they speak too fast.... was very tired coz everyday I have to 120% concentrate to try to understand them and the teachers... but always end up I only exist physically in the class.... well, even now, im still working on it. :)
my first nomikai (飲み会)with my teamate... nomikai is a "drinking party" which is a way to make friends and get to know each other for Japanese. For Malaysian, is same as out yamcha / mamak habit.
That`s a little story about my working life which I left out.... okay, let`s continue with the SHIZUOKA trip!!!
we were waiting.. waiting and waiting patiently for the.... hungry fish to get caught... hehe
