Kaiten Sushi

53 days left before leaving Sendai.

I'm stuffed. I had eleven plates of sushi, a pudding, and a cake for lunch. It happened in a place called Kappa Sushi. It's one of the Indonesian people's favorite eating places since it's cheap, hahaha. Kappa Sushi is one brand of kaiten sushi, which is basically a place to eat sushi where they use the conveyor belt to distribute the sushi. The kaiten sushi is also well-known for being a place to eat cheap sushi. It's apparently very common to find this kind of sushi place in Japan. 

One thing that distinguishes kaiten sushi with sushi restaurant is, as I already mentioned, that it has this conveyor belt which literally conveys the sushi from the kitchen to the customers. As you might expect from the Japanese people, all of the things in this kind of dining place is automated. We can order sushi by using the touch pad available at each table and after your order is processed, they will send the orders to you by using a mini bullet-train-like conveyor which would stop directly at your table. A kind of chime will then be played to give you a notice that your order had already arrived. You will then need to push a button after taking all your orders, then the bullet-train-like conveyor will go back to the kitchen and wait for the next order. It's pretty cool to know how the Japanese actually apply these technologies on daily basis.

Anyway, regarding the sushi itself; although kaiten sushi is considered cheap, I still find the sushi here is much more tasty than those I find in Indonesia. Well, we're not talking about fusion sushi (of course not, I don't even get why those type of "sushi" is considered sushi at the first place). But anyway, the fish here is much more fresh and I somehow really like the taste of the raw fishes here. It's much more delicious and I almost can't smell any stench out of them.

So yeah, even though I only usually eat the kaiten ones, I definitely will miss the sushi here :) Considering I only have about 60 days before leaving Japan (and 54 days before leaving Sendai), I hereby assume that my decision to eat 11 plates of sushi was not wrong at all.

Yeay, The Danbo on his first experience at kaiten sushi place!

There goes the conveyor belt :) just above the first conveyor belt which serves sushi for customers, there's another  "rail" for table's order conveyor which will come with the train-like shape directly to your tables.

An extra picture for today :) we had fun. YEEESS! And ah, could you see the touch pad? It's the rectangular-shaped black-edged item placed just above the conveyor belts with the pictures of their menus :)

Soundtracks of my life :)

Assalamualaikum wr. wb.
If this were a Facebook status, I'd write "I'm feeling nostalgic". 
I am currently listening to old songs on my laptop; the songs I used to download as mp3s long before Spotify existed. Songs which I used to listen throughout the different stages of my life, each of those subconsciously linked to certain memories. On this post, I'll list them all in an orderly manner, just for fun. (Feels like it's been such a long time since I did something "just for fun", haha).
Here we go!
Junior High School

I used to be obsessed with Lion King (don't think the obsession ceased up until now) and listened to its songs almost everyday after school. Since I did not have fast internet connection and couldn't download any mp3s at that time, I listened to the songs on my tape by playing the movie's VCD. I knew exactly at which minu…

Things That I am Grateful for in 2017

Assalamu'alaikum wr. wb.
Today marks the first day of 2018, thus 2017 had officially ended. 
I think it feels great to have a feeling of starting anew again, since 2017 was not that great for me. I personally think that I didn't accomplish that many things last year, and it really made me feel bitter; empty and unsatisfied. However, as life goes on, I need to move forward and turn the bitterness of 2017 into lessons, while still being grateful of the little things in 2017 that made me feel happy. So, here comes the list of what I am grateful for, and in the next post I will share the things that I wish I did differently in 2017.
I am grateful that I was engaged. Back in early April 2017, my boyfriend told me that he would like to talk to my dad and ask him if he can marry me. This did not come off as shocking to me because I knew that one day that time would come, but I did become a little bit emotional when I actually saw him talking earnestly to my parents about wanting to m…
