Japanese Okonomiyaki (お好み焼き)

Have been absent for 2 months without any posting on my blog but seems nobody missed my food leh!  Sad!  But life goes on...........   
Had a great holiday at Jeju and Seoul, Korea for 8 days trip with my 2 girls from 23rd May to 1st June 2012.   Hope to upload the photos and details here in the near future!
After the fascinating Korea Trip immediately have to head to Gopeng Perak to register youngest daughter Tammie to her matriculation school for the next 52 weeks.   Tammie is not  physically  and mentally prepared for a brand new life ahead!  Bless her and wish her all the best in her future undertaking!  Mummy and Daddy love you!!

I am sharing here with you a Japanese Delight Okonomiyaki ((お好み焼き).  A Japanese pizza.  Okonomiyaki simply means 'what you like" whereby you can add any ingredients as you wish. 
 If you have a passion for food, you absolutely must try Okonomiyaki! 

A giant Okonomiyaki (8" the size of the bottom of my frying pan)
