Hansel & Gretel + Genki Sushi

It has been a super long time ever since my boyf & I went out for a date. And I meant 二人世界!! We decided to have a Pre-CNY shopping at Bugis street - Our favourite shopping heaven! My boy had a huge shopping haul as he needed new clothes for CNY, but I only bought myself a cute light blue bralet as my family didn't have that practice of getting "new clothes" for CNY. I'll be heading back to HK during the winter season anyway.

Glad to be his "fashion advisor" as I chose and help him decide on most of the clothes he bought!

2 pants, 1 pair of jeans, 2 shirts, 1 formal-T, 1 pair of shoes = About S$200 

We got most of the items from the same shop! And definitely going back there for more in the future!!

I can't wait to wear my new bralet out too! It's beyond cuteness!

We then had an impromptu movie session and watched the show that I have anticipated...


I'm a sucker for horror & gore movies. Occasionally and perhaps FREQUENTLY frightened by "suspense" scenes but I LOVE THE GORE PART. I know it's like "ewwww" & "WHAT!?" for a girl to favour such movies but yep, if you're my friend, you probably know that I love movies like witches, ghosts, vampires, zombies and even pure gore like Final Destination. 

This show is almost perfect with unexpected twists (Ahh, don't worry I won't spill the beans, go catch the movie yourself and you'll find out ) It's like a fairytale gone wrong. And I realized that recent movies are produced from fairytales and Disney characters. Like "Snow White and the huntsmen".. 

Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters has an ENGAGING plot and there wasn't any boring scenes. I couldn't even find a suitable time to go to the toilet! Some violence and gore where bodies explode and bloody body parts flying everywhere. The witches look horrendous too, which perfectly suit the horror theme. Their faces look so rotten and teeth like fangs. But somehow, their faces reminded me of DINOSAUR EGGS :3

Do you agree with me??

And  for Hansel & Gretel Witch Hunters!

We rushed down to Orchard Central after the movie for the sake of having our dinner at GENKI SUSHI. How dumb was I to change my mind to not dine at this place the other time. Because the food here is simply yummlicious and affordable! Much much more affordable than Jap restaurants like Sakae Sushi and MOF which have similar food standards.

I know I'm not a kid anymore :/ But I get fascinated with the express bullet train and even F1 car sending sushi to our table! Conveyor belts are already good enough, and now this express car/ train serving directly to us! Talk about speed delivery! Zooooooooooom! 

And I was tempted to intercept people's food when the express passed our table! Hehe :> 

Do note that each car/ train can only serve 4 plates! And remember to send the express tray back by pressing the button! 

Each table had an Ipad for us to take our own order, actually nowadays quite a number of restaurants do this too. But I love how this works. Just a click on the chosen food and it will POOF! Appear in the bullet train, ready to be served when you click confirm! Convenient and also easy to use!

A rack on top to place our shopping bags & stuff!

And one word to describe the food! TOOTHSOME!!! Nom nom nom ٩(^‿^)۶

When our food arrived in that cute little F1 car, I can't stop commenting how nice it looks & tastes. They even have a Salmon Sashimi triple flavour. Something different on every bite, that would be less boring instead of eating the same thing for 3 times! My boyf and I eat rather different things when it comes to Jap food so I usually get bored if I finish the whole plate myself (unless I have a super strong craving), but this is good! 

Not to mention that the sashimi is really fresh and with an acceptable portion! I was savouring every bit down. 

This Soft Shell Crab is the nicest I have ever eaten during these 2 years! It has a delicate crisp and it tasted so juicy inside. The whole thing was so flavourful that I just couldn't get enough of that! I wished that I had ordered 1 more serving!!!

My boy's favourite dish. And he always scares me with the octopus!!!! ॓_॔ 

Amaebi Sushi. This was another of my favourite dish in Genki Sushi. I don't usually pay much attention to the small shrimps as the taste of it is not really as strong as compared to those juicy big ones. But this was really fresh with a subtle hint of sweetness.  

I usually don't fancy this dish as well. Oh but actually, I used to love this when I was a kid. I think I somehow ate too much that I got afraid to eat it. And partly because I don't feel comfortable eating soft bones like Eel. Even though in actual fact it tastes really delicious. I know that soft bones can be swallowed, but sometimes they still prick through my gums and throat ):

This was something different, I felt almost nothing eating the whole body and the "eggs" inside had such a strong taste which I obviously love it! When I was younger, I used to dig them out and only eat the eggs, leaving the body. And it seemed like I'm operating on the fish or something. Yes gross I know!!


The price was really cheap. Some of which is almost half the price of Sakae Sushi/ Sushi Tei. Not kidding, the Sea urchin sushi only cost S$5.80. At Sushi Tei, I think it's above S$10.00!! We spent only S$37.00 and I didn't even take photos of all the food we ordered. The staff was friendly and service is good! Even though it doesn't matter as much since we can order from the Ipad. 

BUT OVERALL IT WAS AWESOME! *Thumbs up for them*

It was a whole new Sushi dining experience at Genki Sushi and we will DEFINITELY go back for more! The queue is pretty long but I believe that good things are worth the wait!
