Can you guess where was I last Saturday?
Tadaaa~ I attended a sushi making workshop at T-Garden Cooking School in Cheras (behind Tesco Extra, Taman Midah).
This workshop is all made possible with the collaboration of T-Garden Cooking School, Midea Malaysia, and also Oriental Cuisine Magazine. All they had to do is buy this months' edition of the magazine and get a participation voucher to this workshop for FREE. *COOL*
This sushi making workshop costs about RM140, and Midea Malaysia sponsored all of us for this event. Thank you Midea Malaysia~ *muacks muacks*
Back to my sushi making moments. When I stepped into T-Garden Cooking School, I was shocked. This cooking school, is very homely (being located in a house), with a very complete kitchen!
Oh ya, not to forget, they have a HUGE kitchen.
Not only that, it also has a recycle corner! I really respect that! A cooking school with a heart of gold. By just looking at this corner, it actually instill awareness amongst the participants to NOT simply chuck the waste any where.
Alright, I'm ready... Let's go!
First, all participants are given an apron to put on. How do I look? HAHA..
We were then welcomed and briefed by Ms. Seow, representative from Midea Malaysia. If I am not mistaken, there will be more of this event being arranged in future. HAHA, so remember to check out Midea Malaysia and T-Garden's Facebook page and check out if there's any "not-to-be-missed events"!
Okay, the instructor/teacher or what we call "Lao shi" in mandarin, kick start the lesson by teaching us how to make the sushi rice. This sushi rice can be prepared by using the rice cooker. In this case of course, we used Midea's rice cooker and lao shi said the rice turned out perfect!
While demonstrating the techniques of making the rice, lao shi also taught us on the types of rice and vinegar available in the market.
So being good students, me and XeROz tentatively practised our skills. An ideal sushi rice, should be about 3.2cm long and weigh 20g.
Being born a culinary genius, making sushi rice is no big problem for me. *boast* So here's my sushi rice.
After that, we all went for the sushi presentation. The presentation is being conducted by Florence lao shi. While we were all busy with the rice, our lao shi went to change into KIMONOS!
So, Florence lao shi explained on the types of sushi available - eg. Nigiri, Gunkan and many more *can't remember* hehehe..
She also informed us where we can find the sushi making ingredients, so that we can go home and start making sushi for our family and friends!
Anyway, the most incredible thing is that we are not the first batch of the sushi making workshop. This workshop has already taught more than 1000 students!
As we stepped back into the kitchen, our "toppings" for the sushi has been prepared. I see wakame, ebikko, smashed eggs, mixed salad and tuna!
The second part of the workshop begins with lao shi teaching us how to make up the "toppings". It's really easy seeing how she did it. Prepare, wash, cut into mini-bits, top with adequate mayonnaise, salt and pepper, there you go~
This is what the lao shi made during the demonstration.
Beautiful, aint it?
Wanna see mine?
Mine is really plain and ugly, and my seaweed all turned sticky and foggy! *sulks* I have no talent!!!
and as I looked at the girl in front of me, her's was a success story...*envy*

So here's all the sushi beginners... Just, they are better than me HAHAHA..
Even Ms. Seow's sushi looked good. Her ebikko really looked mouth-watering!
Last but not least a photo with cute Florence lao shi..
Oh wait, there's also a sharing contest organized by Midea. All I need to do is:
1) Post my sushi making moments.
2) Get friends to like
3) Inform them
It's pretty easy! So if you are reading this. Help me like my blog post yah! *doe eye* Pleeaaaseeeeeeee~
If I win, I get to bring home a Midea rice cooker and make many many sushi~ I will become the next Sushi Tycoon in Malaysia *daydreamz*

There's no Sushi Prince model yet, but don't worry. T-garden Cooking School has also given me RM100 vouchers rebate if I would want to enroll in their October class. Unfortunately, I'm really busy on October weekends, so I wish to give away these 2 vouchers (1 from me, 1 from XeRoZ).
Common sense tell me that these vouchers are not stackable. So, I'll be giving 2 different individuals who are keen to participate in the cooking courses offered by T-Garden in October. Here's the link to their OCTOBER SCHEDULE. All you need to do is drop me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org and
I will use a ONE-day courier service and get the vouchers delivered right to your doorstep by 29th September. So,you still can use the vouchers.
Courier fee of RM6.80 (klang valley area) per document will be fully sponsored by MsXeRoZ.com. I will only post these two vouchers to KL & Klang Valley address only.
