The Many Faces at Tokyo Disneyland

At Tokyo Disneyland, I saw many children who dressed up for the visit. Some of them dressed up as fairies and they all wanted to post with the princess.




Other than the children faces, I could see many faces of the soft toys too. These are definitely something that every child wants to bring home.




Apart from the visitors, I saw many different type of faces amongst the staff too.




Some of the children dressed up like the flower bed.




And I saw many faces of Minnie wannabes too.




Even myself couldn't resist to show my face at Tokyo Disneyland too!

Gypsy Queen Live at Natsu Sacas Asian Beat Night

Last Sunday night, I received a personal email from Shinon, the lead singer of Gypsy Queen. I knew Shinon through the VYSA Singing Competition where she performed as a guest singer for the event, together with the Gypsy Queen group, of course.




I felt so honoured that a J-pop group's lead singer sent me a personalised email inviting me to their concert, so I felt obliged to attend, as I have never been invited by any singer or group personally. She even gave me the photo credit in her blog post about this event, with a link to my blog!




The event was called '夏 Sacas アジアンビート Night', or in Japanese English 'Na-tsu Sa-ka-su A-ji-an Bi-to Nai-to', or in English, 'Natsu Sacas Asian Beat Night', organised by the Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) TV station. Natsu is the Japanese word for summer, and Sacas is just the specific name of the venue.




This event was held on Monday, August 11th, 2008. Therefore, I had to rush for the bus and connecting train after work as I didn't want to be late. However, I was still late for about 15 minutes. Fortunately, I didn't miss any singing part as the introduction of the group was still on-going when I arrived.




She sang in many languages that night, including Japanese, Vietnamese, Lao, Tibetan, and even Chinese. She sang two Chinese songs which I am very familiar with, 康定情歌 and 但愿人長久. It was really a great night out for me with a Vietnamese friend Lam. After watching and shooting photos at the live concert, we went to a nearby Vietnamese restaurant for dinner, where I had Pho Ga (rice noodles in chicken soup) for the first time.

Dreamlights

When the sun has set in Tokyo Disneyland, another set of lights come to life in this land without boredom. When the clock hits 7 p.m., the music and lights come alive from the Tokyo Disneyland Electrical Parade Dreamlights.


















Still photos just can't show the play of lights and music, so I have some short videos here for you if you would like to have the feel of the atmosphere.

Jubilation!

When I was visiting Tokyo Disneyland, it was having a 25th anniversary celebration. So, I had a chance to witness the special afternoon parade called Jubilation!

Cinderella first came out on the Princess Garden.








Winnie the Pooh then came out with his friends on the Forest Friends.






Since Simba has not met Winnie the Pooh, it came out on a separate car on Jungle Safari.




Peter Pan and friends and enemies came out together on the Pirate Moon.






Then came Lilo and Stitch, and Pinocchio and friends on the Bubbles. Then came Sulley and Mike Wazowski from Monsters, Inc.








The main character on the Finale is non other than Mickey Mouse himself, with a 'small' fairy.

Mosu Baga no Aisu Kohi

Mos Burger is a chain of fast-food restaurant with the home base in Japan. In Japan, it is pronounced as Mo-su Ba-ga.


"Japanese Fine Burger & Coffee."


The first time I tasted a burger at Mos Burger was more than ten years ago in Singapore. I fell in love with Mos Burger with my first bite and I always went back for more. However, I did not have a chance to go to Mos Burger after I left Singapore.


The original Mo-su Ba-ga.


I found the burgers at Mo-su Ba-ga better than those American chains in term of overall taste and meat quality. However, the burgers are pathetically small at Mo-su Ba-ga, so I normally need to have two burgers for a proper meal.


This is a Su-pai-shi Mo-su Ba-ga (Spicy Mos Burger).


Since Mo-su Ba-ga claims to serve fine coffee, I savour my burgers with a glass of iced coffee. However, I need to mention ai-su ko-hi when I make my order. Sometimes I do quench my thirst with a glass of O-ron cha (Chinese tea) too.


Mo-su Ba-ga no ai-su ko-hi.

A burger meal is usually not complete with some French fries. In Japanese Mo-su Ba-ga, they are called Fu-ren-chi Fu-rai Po-te-to.


The fat and juicy Fu-ren-chi Fu-rai Po-te-to.


O-ni Po-te stands for Fu-ren-chi Fu-rai Po-te-to & O-ni-on Fu-rai (potato French fries & onion rings).


My favourite at Mos Burger has got to be those rice burgers. There are three types, but I have just tasted two of them. They are the Mo-su Rai-su Ba-ga with Ka-ru-bi Ya-ki-ni-ku (pan-fried beef-rib meat) and Mo-su Rai-su Ba-ga with Kai-sen Ka-ki-a-ge (seafood fritter).

Sometimes, Mos Burger does provide some special items on the menu for a limited period of time.

If you haven't seen enough of the Mos Burger food, here's the complete menu, though a bit small.

How I wish Mos Burger will increase the size of serving. The best will be the size as shown in the photo below.
