On Saturday Scott and I finally* got out to Uwajimaya. It was wonderful. We bought pork buns and mochi and some frozen dim sum stuff**, I resisted buying the bubble tea kit, but did get some bubble tea which came in a cute reusable cup (must remember to go back there are collect all of the colors). We headed home, made everything, and ate it while watching Lost In Translation***.
* We went out there a few weekends ago to check it out, only to find that there was a game and therefore No Parking Anywhere At All.
** Including one non-fishy kind for me which claimed to be soy bean thingers, but turned out to have lizardfish paste as an ingredient. What the hell is lizardfish?!
*** Note to Hee – you were right, she does not actually knit in the movie, she just has a mostly finished scarf.
And I got some cute candy:
so cute, so detailed, I still have no idea what the little plastic bottle is for, maybe just effect?
there were lots of kinds of these chocolate mushrooms with cookie stems, I had never seen them before but Scott had, he was holding out on me!
