Tonkichi at Takashimaya has a Christmas Kurobuta Set out. Had it for lunch instead of my usual, and I kinda liked although some might find it a little too oily.
Remember to grind your sesame seeds, pour the sauce on your pork cutlets before dipping them into the seeds.
Got another day off on Friday and that meant a very, very long overdue as well as overnite, weekend gaming session with the guys. Last time we had one of these big sessions was like, four or five years ago. And a big gaming session to us is a gathering of at least 10 guys and that means it's gonna be too big to have it at any of our apartments.
If anyone is interested, the game below is Endeavor. Great new game (cos first time playing it and I won!) bout world exploration and empire building. You represent a European empire colonizing the Mediterranean and shipping stuff around the world.
Anyway, finding a suitable place for gaming the school holidays is also tough cos it's the school holidays but one of us managed to book a chalet waaaaaaaay out in the east. So there we were on a Friday afternoon, dragging more than a dozen heavy boardgames through the light rain and into a little room in the middle of nowhere.
It's not easy to get 10 guys to agree on a suitable weekend of 3 days and 2 nites of gaming. We are all working and half of us are married with little kids.
At any one time we had at least two boardgames up and running in the room. The game above is our ever popular Citadels and the one below is one of the current best-sellers, Small World.
Here's something we found out. Never ever play the Battlestar Galatica Boardgame with people who have never watched the show. It's no fun at all! "...er...what's a Cylon?"
We had over 20 boardgames, three notebooks (yay for free WiFi!) and the plan was to game from Friday afternoon to Sunday morning. Well, I stayed till after Saturday breakfast. No one slept on Friday nite, we gamed right through the nite.
