Lunch At Xenri Japanese Restaurant

Apart from retail therapy, whenever I am under stress, I will ask hubby to bring me to a fancy restaurant and I will gorge myself full with grub to de-stress myself. Not too healthy a hobby eh?

Anyway, after Baby C’s third jab on Wednesday, I was feeling so stressed up that I went to one of my favorite Japanese restaurants for lunch. Xenri Japanese Restaurant is located at Wisma Elken at Old Klang Road. They serve very good and tasty Japanese food and the interior decoration of the restaurant is very soothing.


I ate this Bento set (minus the rice).

Alycia and Sherilyn were of course the happiest as they can go gai gai after school…. on a weekday, which is quite rare.  When we got home, all of us ate cakes (bought from our favorite bakery, RT Pastry House).  It was their ‘yee por por’ (mil’s god-sister)’s birthday and they got to blow the candles on the cake. 

There were 6 adults and 2 toddlers and hubby ordered 8 bento sets!  Check out the other mouth-watering bento sets that we ordered.

Cheap Does Not Mean Cheesy

People always say that cheap things equal cheesy quality but I beg to differ, well, sometimes. Ever since I left the corporate world and lost my financial freedom, I have stopped buying branded stuff. I used to shop till I drop and would buy things for myself and for the girls without any second thoughts, but not after I became a SAHM. I am now much more prudent in my spending. I never took a second look at Tesco-made, Carrefour-made or Guardian-made toiletries and baby stuff but now, I am buying them by the loads!


Tesco-made panty liners and wet tissues are cheap and nice to use too! I even buy the Tesco brand of disposable baby diapers and the quality is just as good as Drypers or Pet Pet. Errmm, Baby C is allergic to the Tesco wet tissues and her bum will get all red after I used the Tesco wet tissues on her bum. I only use these wet tissues on my 2 older girls or to wipe the kids’ toys and other things.

Have you tried the Tesco-made and Guardian-made brand of toothbrush for kids? They are really cheap and no-frills and I buy them for Aly and Sher since I change their toothbrush very often, like once a month. I find them just as good as other branded toothbrush, minus the cute cartoons on the handle of the toothbrush.

So cheap things can also be good to use!  That’s how I stretch my ringgit to the max…. by buying cheap toiletries!
