Daily Journal – Jul 16, 2017

This is my 103rd journal.

As before, I will split this journal into two parts.

July 15, 2017

I went to bed at around 0400hrs and woke up at around 1100hrs to a rainy morning. Did my morning routine and powered on my desktop to play some games. Had my breakfast of fried noodle, hash brown and Chinese sausage.

I played Cities: Skylines for the next few hours until I lost track of time. I was spending quite a lot of time on building up my cities and dealing with the repercussion of me making mistakes.

Had a meeting with my friends at 1630hrs and we planned to eat at the Man Man Unagi restaurant located at 1 Keong Saik Road, #01-01, Singapore 089109. You can get there by taking a train to Outram Park station.

When we got there at around 1720hrs, the queue was already pretty long. We joined the queue. Here is the entrance, after the first batch of people went in.

We chatted and we only managed to get into the restaurant at around 1915.

Our drinks came first and all of us ordered the same thing, the Say Yes Cocktail, costing $12.90 each. The drink has the taste of rose/lychee with some light weight sake in it. It makes for a unique drink and I quite like it.

I ordered the large Unatama, which cost $32.80 each.

My friends ordered the Hitsumabushi which cost $26.80 each.

We also ordered the Shirayaki, which is a side dish, costing $25.80 each.

We also ordered two plates of 3-piece tamagoyaki, costing $12.80 each.

We managed to finish most of our food. In my case, I couldn’t finish it all. Wasted one slice of unagi but then if I continue to eat it, I would have vomited out everything. I was that full from all the side dishes and drinks.

By the time we were done, it was already 2000hrs. The final cost of our dinner was about ~$192.

I would definitely recommend it to my friends. The unagi is soft and taste great unlike those unagi from Japanese restaurant like Ichiban Boshi or Sushi Tei. However due to the price tag and long waiting time, it may only be suitable to eat once every few months unless you have a big pocket and truly enjoy eating unagi.

Today I didn’t do much. As before, I spent quite a lot of time playing Cities: Skylines. Today, it was mostly me trying to deal with death waves. The worse that I have got was that I lost 30k of my city’s population due to emigration and death. Part of the emigration was caused by the landfills being 100% full, causing all garbage to pile up. I had to add more landfills while emptying out the existing ones.

I went for my first 10 kilometer run today and here is the proof.

Tomorrow will be the day I went to sign the contract for my new job and I also got some of the necessary documents for the HR to see.

Here I conclude my journal for today.
