there is something about reading a handwritten letter that still makes my heart skip a beat :) i got these postcards from mom and dad when we were still too young to travel with them. i'm glad i've kept them all these years.
something you could do for stella one day :) hee hee.
robot is that new japanese resto (where the old wasabi used to be)... what can i say?
1. very interesting modern interiors and lighting design- i especially love the wave ceiling of light bulbs and the disco ball bathroom! but the finishes looked a little rough around the edges (i noticed a lot of "imperfections" but maybe that's just me - hehe)
2. the japanese fusion food was okay though i usually prefer just regular fresh japanese food. i did end up ordering my usual edamame (which was served with lemon! interesting!), salmon and uni sashimi anyway - and those were very good :)
3. the music when we came in was bossanova. ugh. but they did change it upon our request - hehehe.
we must have been annoying customers - hihihi :) chickout the photos :)
the entrance with a digital screen sign. the vertical white bars sort of still remind me of the old wasabi.
(this looks much whiter in real life :) - wave ceiling made of light bulbs, steel and glass interiors, white couches, ghost chairs (umay), mirror tables
close up of the ceiling of bulbs (philippines = cheap labor, hahaha)
futuristic hallway to the bathroom - lots of mirrors
the disco ball bathroom with tentacle like sensor faucets
little mirrors everywhere, even on the floor
the light changes from whitish blue during dinner and then to raspberry colors after
the mirror tables are kinda fun.
on another note, we passed by salon de ning at the penn next door (one of only 4 in the world, i heard). and the interiors were AMAZING! so much thought went into every detail, and looks like they didn't spare anything at all... you HAVE to chickitout. here is a peak at the dramatic entrance....
