First the important bit: This is post #100 for me. Whee!
Today was a good shopping day. I am currently full of the pork buns
I bought for dinner. I’ve also got some ham-and-egg buns for breakfast
next week. Also from Kowloon Market came taro and black rice mochi, a
couple containers of the udon and kimchi ramen I like, and lots of
pocky — they still had some Winter (cocoa powder!) left so I stocked
up to last until next winter, and I grabbed some almond crunch and
coconut crunch too, because the crunch flavours are rare around here.
I also picked up some coconut milk for some “instant” Thai noodle
curry I bought a while ago — quotes because “Just add coconut milk!”
isn’t exactly instant for me.
Also went book-shopping, and came home with:
- The Voice of the Blues, a collection of interviews with
blues greats from Living Blues magazine
- The Affluent Society, a classic economics work by John
- Dashiell Hammett’s The Thin Man
- Joe Dimaggio’s classic Baseball for Everyone.
That ought to last me another month or two. My “to-read” shelf
is nearly empty.
And lastly, I bought a pair of red low-top Chucks to replace
mine, on which three little holes on the inside have joined to
become one gaping hole. The new ones are so clean. I hope
they wear in fast.
The girl at Neon said they’re getting a big shipment of Chucks
in in the next couple of weeks, too, so I’ll have to go back and
do some more shopping and get one or two interesting pairs.
Yay for stuff!
