My Sunday Photo – 29th January 2017

This week it was my eldest son’s birthday, we dropped the little ones off at their nanny’s and went out for a ‘grown-up’ meal.

The place of choice was Myako Teppanyaki where the food is cooked right in front of you. It was really entertaining evening, the waiter told us everything he was doing, made jokes, played music with his cooking tools and even managed a few games with the guests around the table, like egg shell golf. Of course, he also set the cooking area alight which is what you can see in my photo. Whoosh, right in front of us, at least three times.

The food was fresh, tasty and with very little additions. Here you can see the chef cooking up our fish dishes including the lobster shells which he was calling baby crocodiles.

It was good watching him cook and my mouth was watering to get stuck in.

Dessert was dessert, you didn’t get a choice. Normally, while out, I’d go for the most decadent of desserts, with plenty of chocolate. However, this ice cream with fruit and mango sauce was a perfect way to end the meal, and it left me happy as well as knowing I’d not just added a couple of inches to my waistline.

    Hi Anne, what a lovely way to spend a Birthday with your son! I have been known to eat where I know the desserts are the nicest, I'm not really a drinker so sugar is my thing! The dessert does look nice and light, perfect for after a meal.

    I'm trying to keep my sugar levels down at the moment so it's probably best they didn't' have more on offer.

    It must have been like having your own personal chef! I love that you managed to catch a photo of the flames too #MySundayPhoto

    Lovely photos! The flames look amazing. Getting out without the kids is pretty nice too! I'm glad to hear you had a lovely time.

    It sounds like a wonderful way to celebrate….I hope your son had a fantastic birthday! x

    I find it quite exciting to see the flames when cooking but only when someone else is in charge! Happy birthday to your son.

    Love these photos – such fun to see the food being cooked in front of you and that dessert looks delicious. I went to a Teppanyaki restaurant for a friend's birthday several years ago and it was a fun experience – your photos make me think I should do it again! 🙂

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I’ve also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me…is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I’ve loved. If I don’t love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It’s always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I’ll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
