Yamagata Teppanyaki

This evening we joined James and Lee Mei (JKLM) for a double date. Japanese again! We went to Yamagata, a Teppanyaki restaurant in Doncaster East. This Teppanyaki place was different than the last one we visited back in October, in that the chef was more good-natured and fun, throwing eggs and bowls around. However the let-down was the food wasn’t that crash hot – and we found ourselves eating food that had a burnt taste to it. Perhaps it was because we shared the hotplate with other guests who began their course half-an-hour before us. And that was the other let-down: the other guests (mind you the guy sitting next to me was ok) were mostly drunk and their behaviour weren’t that respectable. One guy even tried to pick up Lee Mei – what a jerk! Other than that the four of us were good company to each other. Think I drank too much sake hehe.

The plan after Teppanyaki was to head over to Maccas for some dessert and have a chat, however TongTong received a distress SMS from Gabriel’s mentor in Singapore. Gabriel’s 13 month fight after being diagnosed with cancer had taken a drastic downturn. The chemotherapy that only recently begun was affecting his liver. So he has been taken off the chemo and is now taking nutrients and morphine. Steph made the decision to head over to Singapore to support Betsy and Gabes.  Both Betsy and Gabes studied and worked here in Melbourne.  However both went back overseas.  Betsy was in HK, who went to Singapore to visit Gabes.  Betsy is Steph’s best friend and needed her support.
