It was Oscar Movie week over here and I managed to catch up with some good movies (konon-nya) over the weekend. It started with Sweeney Todd which I thought it was quite interesting though still feel disturbed by a few explicit scenes. Can't believe that someone feels inspired after watching the movie and had fun rhyming like Todd @_@
The next movie was No Country for Old Men which I wouldn't have watched it if not for Oscar. What makes it the best picture of the year? Why is the storyline so predictable? Why? Why? Can someone please enlighten me on this?
Following the dinner (another disappointment) at Olio, feeling extremely unsatisfied (quality & quantity wise), we headed to Ochacha for desserts.
Shame on me being a matcha dessert lover but never got to try it back in KL. I was so delighted to know that Ochacha actually originates from Singapore, which means better quality of food in their Singapore outlet?
But why? why? why?
I picked their ice blended matcha with azuki beans ($6.80). The texture tasted exactly like matcha ice cream with azuki beans on top (heck, what am I trying to say...) with a tinge of bitterness.
The matcha cotton cheesecake ($2.90) was another 'surprise', The texture was fluffy but I can't taste anything else but the aching sweetness.
Similarly for the matcha black sesame cake ($4), I was anticipating for some really good desserts but it was not. The taste of the black sesame layers and matcha crumbs on top of the dessert was not apparent.
The highlight of my day was this Gyokuro ($6.90) -- a plain cup of premium green tea. It was being refilled for 3 times (only), actually I can still go for 3 more rounds.
Was I too picky or fussy? All I want is just a piece of bitter sweet dessert.
