Sushi @ the Globe


Sushi @ the Globe





Kato, tell me how come an exotic dancer shows up in the above picture.  Are you saying that she has something to do with sushi?

Oh, yeah… most definitely.

Why is that?

She got access to my blog.


“Actual Footprint Page”

What the heck is this?

These are footprints of my visitors.  Look at the red-rectangled entry!

I can hardly see it.

Well … I’ll enlarge it for you.


So, she accessed your blog from Doha, didn’t she?

Yes, she did.



Doha (Arabic: الدوحة‎, ad-Dawḥa, literally: “the big tree”) is the capital city of the state of Qatar.
Located on the coast of the Persian Gulf, it had a population of 998,651 in 2008, and is also one of the municipalities of Qatar.
Doha is Qatar’s largest city, with over 60% of the nation’s population residing in Doha or its surrounding suburbs, and is also the economic centre of the country.

Doha also serves as the seat of government of Qatar.
Doha is home to the Education City, an area devoted to research and education.
Doha was the site of the first ministerial-level meeting of the Doha Development Round of World Trade Organization negotiations.
The city of Doha held the 2006 Asian Games, which was the largest Asian Games ever held.
Doha also hosted the 2011 Pan Arab Games and most of the games at the 2011 AFC Asian Cup.

But how come the above exotic dancer read your blog?

Good question.  Diane, do you know June, don’t you?

Yes, I do.  She always make a comment at the bottom of your article.


That’s right.  June works as a public relations consultant, and last October, she organized a sushi party for an oil company in Doha.




I see… but how did the exotic dancer step into the above picture?

Well… June invited the exotic dancer and asked her to entertain the guests and company directors at the party.


I don’t think that this kind of scantly-clad dancing is allowed in Arabic coruntries because of the religious restrictions.

I know… I know… but this is an exclusive and clandestine party.  She danced exotically and charmingly so much so that they all enjoyed it to the hilt.

But how did she know that June works for your blog?

It’s nice and easy.  The exotic dancer did a search on GOOGLE like this.


She then clicked on the picture at the upper-lefthand corner and get the following page:


Then she clicked the “Website for this image” and viewed my blog.


“Actual Blog Homepage”

This is my blog.  If you’re intereted in the current footprints, click the green bar on the left side.  You’ll see something like this:

Quite interesting!  So, sushi is popular and famous in Qatar, isn’t is?

Yes, it is as popular as in Vancouver.  By the way, I borrowed the following DVD on sushi.

Kato’s Comment


This is a 2011 documentary directed by David Gelb.
The film follows Jiro Ono (小野次郎), an 85-year-old sushi master and owner of “Sukiyabashi Jiro (すきやばし次郎)”—a prestigious Michelin three-star restaurant.
He is one of the world’s greatest sushi chefs.
But his sushi shop is a ten-seat sushi-only humble-looking restaurant.



He tries to perfect the art of sushi.
If you’re a sushi-gourmet, this is a must-see to improve your knowledge about sushi and re-discover the fine art of sushi.
You would have to wait for three months to sit at his sushi bar.
The price starts at 30,000 yen—roughly, 300 Canadian dollars.
No customeres have ever regretted to pay that much after eating the exceptionally delicious ensamble of suchi.

So you viewed the above DVD on August 22, and then made the above comment, huh?

That’s right.  The chef whom June asked to help her is one of those sushi masters, and the company executive allowed him to use his private jet.  On the day, the sushi master bought all the fish and required materials at the fish market in Tokyo, then flew to Doha, prepared sushi and demonstrated his skill at the party as well. Aftre the party, he flew back to Tokyo. He charged $9,000 for his fee and materials.

Wow! Amazing!

Look at the number for the “Holds” in the above page.  Twenty seven copies are all checked out and 30 people are still waiting to see the DVD.

I wish I could see the avove DVD right away.

No problem!  I’ve just found the video clip for the above movie for you.


Ummmm … yammy, yam, yam, yam … Kato, why don’t you make a delicious ensamble of sushi for me?

NO problem!  But I’m quite busy writing articles.

Take a break, Kato, and show me how to make delicious sushi.

Okay… First of all, you must make sushi rice.

Sushi rice is the base of delicious suchi.  If it is far below standard, then your sushi is ruined.  So be careful.  Once you make good sushi rice, then follow the next steps.

Hi, I’m June Adams.

The contemporary version, internationally known as “sushi”, was created by Hanaya Yohei (1799–1858) at the end of the Edo period in Tokyo.
Sushi invented by Hanaya was an early form of fast food that was not fermented (therefore prepared quickly) and could be conveniently eaten with one’s hands.

Originally, this sushi was known as Edomae zushi because it used freshly caught fish in the Edo-mae (Edo Bay or Tokyo Bay).
Though the fish used in modern sushi no longer usually comes from Tokyo Bay, it is still formally known as Edomae nigiri-zushi.

I like temaki sushi.
It is easy to make.
Here are the step-by-step instructions.
