off to Australia

Hospital Stay & the Teppanyaki that Follows

因為有少量出血匆忙的跑去了醫院。結果進去容易、出來就沒那麼簡單了。

經過各種檢查和抽血後、結果媽媽沒有事、小來也很健康。醫生說不出為何會出血,但總之查一查總是好的,確保沒有意外。

做父母的真的會為小孩子付出很多,有時是無可選擇的。就算辛苦、折騰、憂慮,最後知道寶寶一切都好,就很開心。覺得跑趟醫院很值得。

小孩子很神奇,我們都沒有見過面,但卻很懂我們。

醫生說小孩心跳太平緩了,我們就說「小來啊,你動一動,心跳快一點。」然後心跳就快起來了。醫生過會來看說,小孩心跳又太active了,想看他慢下來。(我心裡OS:你想怎樣!)我們就和小來溝通「你安靜一會,心跳慢下來,那個醫生高興了,我們就能回家啦!」小來就很懂事的,心跳又平穩下來了。

在肚子裡就這麼聰明,出來還得了。。。哈。

神讓我們人做父母,以此來體會他是怎麼一樣的愛我們,甚至更多。真是難以言喻。

醫院照片還很多,但那個環境,怎麼看都不是很幸福而有點depressing,哈。

雖然憂慮散去,但肚子還是吃了兩天的醫院飯食,舌頭表示十分不滿。只好出去覓食來安慰受傷的心靈(和饞嘴)。

娛樂書告訴我們Southgate有個Miyako,可以在Arts Centre那一站下車然後走過去。目測是香港人開的日式料理+鐵板燒。雖然有娛樂書的打折,但吃鐵板燒還是小貴,所以我們財迷心竅的點了一份 XD。(沒啦,是孟太表示不餓)

鐵板燒師傅一般一邊做菜一邊會有一些表演。不過這家店的小哥都較年輕,比起我們去過另一家的日本大叔,耍的沒有那麼多。基本上套路就是:用嘴接雞蛋,拍手蛋捲快斬和點火,再加上一些廚具的雜耍。(吃過這邊鐵板燒的應該知道我在說什麼。)

食物還不錯,我猜如果點最貴的豪華大餐應該值得一試(有龍蝦尾)。雖然不是最驚艷的鐵板燒,但河邊風景極佳。所以適合兩人去。如果多人一起去,建議share幾個set。
