I love capturing photos of plants, food and non-living things because I always believe, although they are not human, but they do have their own expression and emotion yet to be read and appreciated.

Sometimes, we gals will find all sort of reasons to pamper ourselves, for example, after working so hard, we sign up for a spa or facial course; Chinese New Year is coming, so, we shop for clothes and shoes, or sometimes even with no reason, or feel a little upset, we will go to get a manicure, pedicure and not to forget, good food (I always believe in food therapy)...
However, I can't eat with only myself, I need to go with somebody, so, when Lingzie came to KL mid Dec for her business trip, I "ajak" her to go to this restaurant called Hajime with me, for no reason, just felt a little bit boring lately.
I have came across this restaurant when I was driving aimlessly around Jalan Ampang. Then, Lingzie did recommend a blog to me which the blogger wrote about this restaurant too. So, I think it's time for us to give it a try!
That night, I wasn't very hungry, and Lingzie had taken something while waiting for me. So, we gals shared a Hajime Lady's Set for main course, sweet pea for appetizer and a side order of soft shall crab maki. Let me tell you what's in the lady's set, it has sashimi, chawa mushi, sushi, baby octopus, korokke, soba, there are 2 dishes that I don't know and ice-cream is included in the set too!
The food there is really good, it didn't disappoint us, in fact, the ice-cream gave us a surprise! When the waiter served the ice-cream to us, of course, it looks really nice and attractive, we can't wait to eat it immediately, but, the waiter stopped us, he said the ice-cream contain alcohol, sort of like warned us not to eat it in a hurry or we might get drunk. So eager to eat like us, we don't even border, I told Lingzie, how strong can the alcohol be in this ice-cream? That's impossible to get drunk with this! But, but, but, after a teaspoonful ice-cream melt in our mouth, we finally agreed with what the waiter told us.
Another thing that I need to say is, the staffs there are really really friendly, they will come to talk to us, asking comments, serve food with smiles... you know, this is important! The staffs there have done it naturally and we felt absolutely comfortable in there. Thumb up!
Let's guess how much we spent. Answer is at the bottom of this post.
(Hint: good price)

Yea, this is our sweet Lingzie browsing the menu and drinking her green tea
