Trip to Scandinavia 2013: Bergen's fish market

So you wonder where is the food? So here's the food ;) But only about 40% of the overall foodie I had during the trip, shall blog about the rest in another post.

As I mentioned, there's a fish market nearby the hotel we stayed at Bergen. Basically they open at 3pm til late evening.
Though it's a fish market but it's very clean and odor free (well of course the floor is wet la), unlike what we usually see here, hehe~

Quite a lot of stalls here but most of them are selling similar stuff

Bottled caviar, but since I am not a fan hence I din't buy any

Well I think you know Norway is famous for its salmon! I ate quite a lot of salmon fish this time cause I am a salmon fan ;) Even buffet also served generous amount of salmon, to them it's so common but to some of us, consider quite 'high class' already, LOL!

Competition is on going here as they sell almost the same seafood, so all of them are very friendly, you can hear them greeting you whenever you pass by the stalls

Look at the beautiful color!

Lunch sets are available too, about RM 70 per set, averagely

Live king crabs in the tank

Giant lobsters too!

See, very clean, right?

These were our 'tea time'

'cha cha cha', the boss busy preparing those seafood for us~

As we had just taken our lunch, we only tried a small portion just to taste

Very fresh and yummy! Totally forgot about the cholesterol! xD
Din't know how much overall as our tauke besar paid for it ;)

There's also another indoor fish market nearby, and a cafe

Mr waiter welcoming me ;)

  5. Norwegian Salmon is pretty popular; in fact, that's the only type of salmon I'm willing to eat now.

    Well, the government officials there in Scandinavia stress on the importance of hygiene, I guess? =)

  11. I just love fish markets. Just published about such a market in Venice but yours in Bergen is a lot better. I remember the market we visited in Helsinki and that was also fabulous. We also went to the Tokyo fish market.

    Greetings,

    1. i have watched a variety show from TVB and this was exactly the fish market introduced in that show.. nice one, and yes, very clean and tidy and also very colorful.. so different from our Malaysian version of market huh?? haha..

      Delete
    2. the show presenter went to try all the seafood samples and then he was done, and things there are surely not cheap also.. i guess probably they paid the owners some money behind the scene lah.. so you tried the samples and also at least bought something, good girl!! hehe.. :p

    3. just looking at those photos, without even tasting the food, i already can see how fresh and juicy and flavorful and yummy those seafood are!! wow, a real good experience and cool "el fresco" dining there huh?? i will also want to do this if i've got a chance to go Norway one day.. :)

    我喜欢海鲜啊!

  22. The food in UK and Europe are so expensive that even their folks complained the same thing. I will definitely pack some cup noodles in my luggage to save time and money for one meal per day. Sometimes I would just buy bread and dip into hot soups. What a cheapo like me!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I tried eating caviar many times but I found the taste plain and not worth eating for its exorbitant prices! I think they looked pretty to be sprinkled as decorations.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like to eat foreign crabs because they have longer legs and body. more sweet meat inside. I always got rashes when I ate too much crabs!

    Lucky you, got tauke besar to take the tabs!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Seafood, seafood! My fav. Too bad I don't really fancy salmon! Just eat a little only! :P

    ReplyDelete
  26. OMG! hahahahhaha this type of tea time so atas!!! XD

近期所用的美容产品分享篇

*还没参加抽奖游戏的朋友们,快快按这里吧~ 到今晚10点罢了哦!* (For those who have not participate in the Bangkok giveaway, click HERE before 10pm today!* *帮我的家换了形象,还好吧?^^ *
好久好久没来篇像样的华语post咯! 今天就算牺牲美容觉也得呕出一篇来回馈我亲爱的读者朋友们,我知道有时看太多鸡肠对眼睛不好 xDD 怎样,我抵錫吗?:p
Hmm 近期有用了些我觉得很不错的美容产品想和大家分享分享。
1. Tosowoong pore brush 这是我美容师介绍的,来自韩国的电动洗脸仪。据说是韩国最好卖的电动洗脸仪。用的是0.045mm的nano钎维细毛,最大功能就是能彻底的深入毛孔而清洁毛孔里的污垢,同时也不会令毛孔粗大,效果比平时我们用手洗来的更干净。因为用的是很软的细毛所以可以每天使用,也不会造成什么皮肤敏感等问题。 基本上它的操作方法就好像电动牙刷一样,先将细毛弄湿然后挤上洗面乳,on一on,就可以轻轻的往脸上洗。
上回从曼谷回来脸上突然起了好多粉刺油粒,而且还是会痒的那种,应该是那边的水和空气肮脏,加上喝不够水,又不够睡,搞到毛孔诸塞阿!刚好美容师介绍了这个 pore brush,用了几天后,真的有觉得皮肤比较干净亮丽!不过我并没有每天用啦!有时赶时间的时候,用手洗会比较快 xD 想要更了解Tosowoong pore brush的朋友,可以按这里
满意度:8/10
每次用完后把细毛稍微清洗,然后放在附送的stand上,自然风干就可以了
电动棒也可以’振出’很多泡沫~
这些细毛也不会集水,所以很快就会吹干了
里面用的是一个AAA电池。基本上只要把盖锁紧,整个洗脸棒浸在水里也没问题。 售卖价格:RM 170

2。那天去索取了一包7天装的 Clarins double serum sample,用了一次后立刻爱上它了!!我一直以来对Clarins的产品都有好评。这个也不例外! 它是以油和水所制成的,里面共有20种植物精华,主要功能是抗老,减少皱纹,缩小毛孔,紧实肌肤,让肌肤有弹性。 我一直相信抗老必须从早做起所以在还未迈入‘3张’就必须打好基础,呵呵~

包装里有两种精华分别是水性的和油性的。把两种精华混合在一起,轻轻往脸上压和拍打就可以了,不需要刻意…

BFF trip to Bangkok 2013: The food post

Bangkok is not only a heaven for the men shopping but also food! I've actually Google and blog hopping beforehand to see what's worth to eat at Bangkok, can only chose the most popular ones as we were there for only 4 days 3 nights, a very rush trip.
I've filtered out those food we ate during the trip which I think worth mentioning.
@ Food court, Platinum Mall Green curry chicken rice
Beef noodles
Fruit crepe
The food court is so big here in Platinum Mall, hundreds of tables are provided but almost all are occupied.

Dessert @ Swensen, Platinum Mall

(pale looking face, first day after touching down) Swensen is not in my itinerary, we decided to go here instead of Mr Jones Orphanage at Siam Center cause of the location. Siam Center is further away from where we stay, but Platinum Mall is just about 10 minutes walk from the hotel. End up, no regrets! Much cheaper and yummier compared to Malaysia.

T&K seafood, Chinatown  (It's easier to get here by metered cab)





By far…

2D1N Hatyai trip

I have been to Hatyai many times and I am not bored of it yet, haha!! xD
It's one of my favorite place to go, I mean considering the fact that I can't really travel oversea at the moment (no money and no time).
But traveling to Hatyai is still consider 'oversea' la right? 😆 It's just that we go there by car instead of plane.... Just 2 hours plus to reach kastam, almost like from Taiping to KL.

We had a short getaway to Hatyai last month, it was 2 days after the Songkran festival. We tagged Aden and Toby along so hubby suggested to avoid that festival.

Journey was smooth from Taiping all the way to the kastam, just the queue at the kastam was a bit tiring. We managed to check in early, lucky!

We stayed at Grand Pink hotel, I simply love this hotel because the room is big and clean! Staff service is nice too! Highly recommended, heard it's been refurnished lately. It's located next to Lee Garden Plaza so it's easy to find!
I also love the spacious bathro…
