Tanoshii Dezato – New Flavour for April 2016

The Cosplay-Fun Team was invited to sample their newest flavour of their premium softserve ice cream from Japan.
Launched in April Tanoshii Dezato new flavour called – “Haru Sakura” a sakura flavoured soft serve ice cream. So ngam for the season… the cherry blossom spring timing as well as the extra hot April weather 😀
Of course when we were there to sample, it was like a blind test. They didn’t give a any hint… it was like sit down, try, tell us what you think… guess the flavour! haha Which was really fun! 
I’m not the all out Japanese Foodie kinda guy but I’m a fan of good food 🙂 My first impression was that the ice cream was very fragrant. Refreshing fragrant and it was just nice with it’s sweetness. My guess was it was a sakura flavour ice cream & I was right haha. Much to the amusement of our host Ms Chew!
Now that was the ice cream test… next, they were going to let us try the full combo – the taiyaki (the stuffed fish shaped puff) + Haru Sakura + fruit!
If the earlier taste experience was WOW, this combo was WOW + WOW + WOW. There are 4 types of fruits to match with 7 types of stuffing for your taiyaki. Kiwi, peach, strawberry & banana to pair with your choice of taiyaki filling: red bean, custard, matcha, caramel almond, oreo crunch, chocolate banana, chocolate.
My wife & I had a chance to try Peach + Red Bean Taiyaki + Haru Sakura and Peach + Chocolate Taiyaki + Haru Sakura… did you get all that? haha
Firstly, it’s quite a lot to eat one whole combo on your own! It’s big enough to be shared with a loved one. Personally, we prefered the Chocolate x Sakura flavour because these 2 flavours complimented each other in opposites. The chocolate was a strong caster-sugar sweet coco flavour that was warm VS. the fresh fragrant flowery sakura flavour ice cream that was cold. Yummy! Oh and did I mention the chocolate oozes out of the warm baked puff? muahahaha >:D
Like the advert says this flavour is only for a limited time only (APRIL) so do head out to one of the 2 Tanoshii Dezato outlets (Tropicana City Mall & Da Men Mall USJ) and try it out!

GSC Anime Showcase 2014

Out of the blue I saw this as I browsed the Golden Screen Cinemas website – http://www.gsc.com.my

Malaysian anime fans can get a chance to watch these 3 movies on the big screen!! Some of you might echo my excitement… then again some might not. Some of your might say – “why pay money to watch in the cinema? I just downloaded & watched on my PC” – and I will reply “awesome story bro!” haha. Well there are just 2 things I want to mention about this anime showcase:

1) Because it is screening in the cinema, you can actually get out of the house (away from the PC) + meet up with friends (in the flesh) + have a larger experience of your shared interest!! = ANIME!!

2) Viewing Experience – some folks like watching cinema rip movies, some folks like watching movies on their PC and some like to watch movies the day it opens in the cinema. It’s different strokes for different folks. I appreciate good movies & I appreciate the quality, effort & skill it requires to make one. So I prefer to watch in the cinema… on the BIG screen… in 2D DIGITAL… with Dolby ATMOS (when available). Different strokes for different folks.

For the past 8 years, the only chance Malaysians get to watch any Japanese movie in the cinema is wait for the International Screens selection or my favourite, the ever faithful Japanese Film Festival (ever September), both brought to us by none other than Golden Screen Cinemas. The first Japanese feature film I watch at GSC was Ultraman the Next in 2006 at the JFF – Mid Valley. It was an amazing experience to watch a childhood hero in action on the silver screen. I’ve been visiting & support the JFF ever since. It was very good to see the success of the JFF span to greater heights in 2013 as for the first time it was also held in GSC cinemas in East Malaysia – Sabah & Sarawak.

Here are the titles, show times & the synopsis links:

1) Lupin the 3rd vs Detective Conan: The Movie – GSC Movie synopsis

2) Hunter x Hunter: The Last Mission – GSC Movie synopsis

3) Yoyo Nene – GSC Movie synopsis
