Gantetsu Hokkaido Ramen, Isetan Eat Paradise, 1 Utama

I automatically turn to Japanese when it comes to deciding what to have for lunch. I had Ichiro in mind, but kids wanted ramen (again!) so we decided to try out Gantetsu, which is also located in Isetan Eat Paradise. A long time ago, I tried Gantetsu in Changi Airport, Singapore and that time I had their signature Hokkaido miso and enjoyed it.

I ordered the Hokkaido King Charshu Tonkotsu (RM27.90) which came with thick noodles, wood ear fungus, spring onions, 4 thick slices of charshu and egg, in a tonkotsu broth. The tonkotsu broth here is not as thick and rich as Menya next door, however it is still flavorful. However, I thought the pork charshu tasted pretty bland and the egg was not a flavoured egg as advertised (just an ordinary boiled egg) - fortunately it was nice and runny. Nevertheless, still a good bowl of ramen which we enjoyed.

Baby C had the Kids Set 1 (RM14.50), which came with a small bowl of ramen with half an egg, wood ear fungus, as well as 3 piece of fried chicken (karaage), a bottle of Vitagen and jelly. Hubby had the katsu curry rice (RM22.90), which according to him is tasty.

Price: Total bill RM80.55.

Location: Gantetsu Hokkaido Ramen, 2nd Floor, Isetan Eat Paradise, 1 Utama Shopping Centre, 1 Lebuh Bandar Utama, Bandar Utama City Centre, 47800 Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. (near Isetan Kids Department)

Homeschooling: How to Make Giant Bubbles at Home

Last week, we took our kids to see Dr Bubble with Milkshake show at PJ Live Arts in Jaya One. This interactive storytelling show features all things bubbles - we got to see monster bubbles, bubble in a bubble, smokey bubbles, and much more.

It's school holidays this week, but ironically, BabySumoKids requested that we do "homeschooling" on the first day of the school holidays. First lesson of the day was Science, and for Science, Hubby was the teacher-in-charge, and he decided to let them learn and play with bubbles, as inspired by Dr Bubble. You too can have a magical day of bubble fun at home with your kids - I guarantee that they will love it!

You can see easily buy bubble solution in the stores, which usually comes with a bubble wand. However, you can also DIY your own bubble solution - simply mix washing liquid with water in a shallow container / plate. For the bubble wand, we used a variety of apparatus to achieve different bubbles. The best one we made today was using an old badminton racket (with no more strings in the centre) to make giant bubbles. The racket was bent at an angle to enable the kids to easily dip it in the bubble solution, and then create lots of big bubbles. If you do not have an old racket in the house, you can buy a cheap one at Daiso or DIY for slightly over RM5.

 Yay we can make giant bubbles too! :)

We also used mesh to create multiple bubbles in one go, as well as straws to create "caterpillar bubbles" (ie several small bubbles attached to one another to look like a caterpillar).

We sure had fun experimenting with bubbles today :)
