Exotic Shoo Fee Ma Fe

Filed under: Dazzling Dubai — ricky @ 4:57 pm
From the time we entered the Souq Madinat Jumeirah everything we experienced was quite impressive and that's also when we realized that a souq is not always a souq - it can be anything from an array of market stalls to a luxurious shopping mall with traditional Arabian elements eg pointed arches and domes. Soaking up the atmosphere at this bustling yet exclusive souq was quite something, but the place we called final destination on that night was the highlight of it all: a contemporary Moroccan restaurant with the exotic name of Shoo Fee Ma Fe. Everything was close to perfection, from the fountain with blue tiles and red flower petals at the entrance to ornamented alcoves, Moroccan live music and excellent service. Not to mention the food. Moroccan cuisine is based on tomatoes, eggplant, olives and olive oil, same as Greek food. It contains a lot of chilis and lamb of course. Absolutely amazing. I had grilled and marinated lamb cubes with tomatoes, red peppers and green chilis on the side. Included in the dinner were appetizers like eggplant paste, spicy chili paste, cauliflower with chili and tuna pie with a spicy sauce. There were also tons of olives, green and black in all possible sizes. The service was very professional with personal attention from one of the young yuppy-type managers. One of the waitresses was Chinese and she stayed at our table and chatted with us for a while. I was surprised to hear her say she didn't like Dubai, she preferred China. Not the content surprised me but the fact that she said it at her workplace! She was very friendly like most Chinese but I think she got scolded for staying at our table too long because we didn't see her again after that. Having been in Dubai twice and tried restaurants with many different cuisines, this one, Shoo Fee Ma Fe is on top of my list of favorites. This is the last entry in my Dubai Diary. Next week I'll start my China Journal.

Dubai Souq Deira II

Filed under: Dazzling Dubai — ricky @ 7:37 pm
As we explored the maze-like souq we came across all kinds of oddities - odd for us at least. Burkas as far as the eye reached, and these days they're decorated with beads, sequins and other adornments. They are, however, still black. I'm just waiting for the day they start selling them in vivid colors, I might get one myself! Funny though, next to the burkas hang, sensously and seductively, tiny bellydance outfits in all colors of the rainbow. Amidst this array of garments, tapestry, sofa covers and pillow cases we saw stuff like "breast enlargement cream" ....... I did however find one thing that I wanted - and purchased: Tiger balm, manufactured in Singapore and originally from Burma. I swear on this potion for sore muscles, headaches or as an immediate relief for a cold. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

All over for Robinson

Filed under: News & Events — ricky @ 6:10 pm
kaitenzushi.jpgRobinson Department Store is scheduled to close down in January and the final clearance sale has started. I went there to take a look but didn't find anything appealing. Instead, I had brunch at Isshin kaiten sushi on the basement floor. It has long been a favorite of mine, it's not as large and lively as Hanamaru or Nagoyakattei, but it's cozy and there's usually no waiting line which is definitely an asset and makes me go back every time. Needless to say, the fish is fresh and the sushi mouthwatering.

Mexican reality bites

Filed under: News & Events — ricky @ 8:09 pm
traffic1.JPGThis is more appalling than any movie plot: The head of Interpol Mexico has been arrested for ties with a powerful drug cartel. Interpol is the largest international police force, designed to solve crimes on a global scale. As it turns out, Interpol Mexico's top banana supplied drug traffickers with sensitive information about police operations in order to keep them save and the drug flow between Latin America and the US steady. Only last month two top anti-drug agents were arrested for taking "mordidas" (bribes, literally "bites") of up to $450,000 a month from a violent drug cartel. Mexico's war on drugs has claimed more than 4,300 lives this year, many of them police officers. The army is considered less corrupt than the police and has taken over control of infamous border city Tijuana where police bribery is commonplace and some police officers make no secret out of being hitmen for drug gangs. Mexico's president Felipe Calderon's war on drugs is a brave and honorable mission and it has to be completed in order to protect children, teenagers and society at large from the devastating effects of drugs. When I lived in Mexico the government more or less turned a blind eye on the activities of drug cartels, mostly out of fear. If you want to gain some insight into the schemings of drug cartels from a Hollywood point of view I recommend you the movie "Traffic". Don't miss Benicio del Toro's outstanding performance that earned him an Oscar. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

That was our Movie Night

Filed under: News & Events — ricky @ 7:01 pm
crystal.JPG Thanks everybody for coming to our movie night! The Nightmare before Christmas got the most votes, nice choice. A scary Christmas instead of a merry one, snakes sliding up Christmas trees, skeleton raindeer and a skinny Santa Claus handing out gifts of spiders, bats and other creepy stuff ... hmmm ... why not try, lol. The second party at the JR GoGo building was at least as fun, not to mention the third one at the funky Electric Sheep Bar where we had cocktails with timely names like silky snow or winter fantasy: As we were sipping them, thick snowflakes were falling down from the sky, covering the railways with silky snow! I thought it was a genuine Sapporo winter view. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Japanese Beauty

Filed under: So Japanese — ricky @ 5:05 pm
dsc06154.jpg Absolutely beautiful: Aiko in kimono Very nice surprise today when Aiko came to class dressed in a kimono! She was going to a wedding afterwards and decided to wear a traditional Japanese garment - VERY COOL. I find it regrettable that Japanese women refrain from wearing kimono these days - but I guess that's like expecting us to dress in wild-west-outfits. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Winter wonderland

Filed under: News & Events — ricky @ 3:11 pm
winter.JPGThis picture was taken today. Incredible how Hokkaido's landscape changes within a few days from fall foliage to winter wonderland. And if we previously experienced the shokuyoku no aki, then this must be the shokuyoku no fuyu, cause all I've been doing is eat and eat and eat more, and after eating a big lunch I'm having all these chocolates. Got two boxes of Royce yesterday, I guess by now everybody knows that they're my favorite chocolates. The new flavor for Christmas is Kir Royal nama choco, try it, it's worth it. By the way - have you ever had lunch at Bikkuri Donkey? I did today and what a positive surprise, the portion was really decent, 300 g of hamburger steak, a lot of rice and a salad too, all for a little over 900 yen, incredible. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Soup Curry Triangle at West 11

Filed under: News & Events, Soup Curry — ricky @ 5:22 pm
indocurry.JPGEver since Chandrama opened last month it has formed a soup curry triangle along with Campbell's and Medicine Man and I find that the three serve similar food - a rather thin soup that's more like a consomme than a curry. Chandrama's colorful interior design has a distinctive Indian/Nepalese touch, the food is good and reasonably priced. Lunchtime soup curry is in the 780/880 yen price range. Only drawback is that you have to pay extra for the rice, 280 yen! Choices include mutton, chicken or seafood on a spicy scale from 1 to 10. I got a free lassi, I guess because it was my first visit? Crowded at lunchtime so be there early! I have blogged about Campbell's before and as far as Medicine Man is concerned, it is a well established and popular eatery but not among my favorites. Chandrama, South 8, West 11. Phone 011-521-0788. Next do Domino's Pizza. 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

A spark of surprise

Filed under: Soup Curry — ricky @ 9:12 pm
spark1.JPGWell the weather report was wrong like it is half of the time - it didn't snow yesterday. Look at this picture, I took it last night and there's no hint of snow whatsoever, just lots of fallen leaves. Went to Spark after work and experienced two very interesting things. First, the waitress was quite a bit different from most others in similar establishments. Physically she was not as skinny as other Japanese women, but I'm not talking about that. While she took my order she kept saying "eh ... eh ... eh" instead of "hai". Other than that she was very friendly and attentive, just very informal and that's surprising in a Japanese restaurant! Her appearance and attitude reminded me so much of Chinese women, and the funny thing is that the cashier was like that too! I really like the food at Spark so I inquired about the recently opened restaurant in North ward. The cashier replied "Hmmm ... I don't really know where it is, I just know that it's in the North 24 neighborhood"! Another thing that amazed me was when four young salarymen came in and asked about the last-order-time, the waitress - that waitress - answered "Last order was 15 minutes ago but you know what, no problem, just come in!" VERY UNUSUAL in Japan and unbelievable!! I love the food at Spark and will go back there ... soon, lol. As far as the weather forecast is concerned, it is snowing now and it seems like it's here to stay. PS: I am not saving this post under "So Japanese" cause this is "So not Japanese"!! 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。

Fall foliage

Filed under: News & Events — ricky @ 7:26 pm
fall3.JPGfall2.JPGfall1.JPG I took these pictures just a few days ago, beautiful fall foliage, but according to the weather report this ostentatious showing off of leaves is not going to last much longer ... it'll snow tonight! 札幌の英語の先生、札幌のスペイン語の先生、札幌英語先生、札幌スペイン語先生、英語のブログ、BLOG、会話、英語英会話、札幌の先生、札幌先生、英語の語学スクール、スペイン語の語学スクール、札幌英会話、英会話、English teacher in Sapporo, maestra de español。
