If there was ever a time when you had Japanese food to the point you leave the shop beaming from ear to ear, tonight had to be it. The venue? Isaribi Tei Japanese Restaurant which serves authentic Japanese Cuisine of course! This Penang based Japanese Restaurant is located at Burmah Square on Jalan Chow Thye, on the row of shoplots nearby Him Heang.
The night was pouring heavily, and with our stomachs growling, this seems to be the perfect place. The garden which leads to the restaurant was beautifully decorated, and even though it was dark, it gave the place a very cozy feeling.
Upon entering the place, we were greeted by their friendly waiters and shown to our table. Looking around, we can see that the spacious restaurant is decorated with a tapestry of cultures. Wooden panels decorated the walls, while memorabilia of all sorts were donning the sides. We don’t feel that we are actually in an old pre-war shoplot.
These bags can be used for keeping hand phone, tissue paper, spectacles…..I have given some of these items as presents/gifts for my friends and relatives on special occasion. They were very pleased with it.
I have gone as far as framing up one of the beads design as a picture to hang on the wall in my living hall.
These are miniature pillows with colourful flower design. I used them to brighten up small corners in cupboards and on table tops.
All the colourful beads, patterns and materials can easily be found in handicraft shops – Sin Seng Lee in Penang Road and Sin Soon Lee in Rangoon Road. It is an interesting hobby. It gives me a rewarding feeling looking at them.
Do give your views and ideas on beads and cross stitch sewing and I would be happy to share mine with you too.
For all my beads handy craft work, I prefer to use the smallest size beads because the finishing product looks more elegant. To start off, I have to choose a design, colour of the beads, specified needles, thread and a frame. The frame is require to hold the cloth tightly which makes sewing much more easier.
