Some random items...
I am kinda liking kinda disliking this wine by Montes...I forget what magazine I read about it in, but it was supposedly perfect for summer.
It was kinda too dry for my liking.
I'm liking Tully's tapioca coconut latte...black tapioca, lightly sweetened coconut milk and coffee...so perfect on a humid day.
Their soy & wheat waffle cookies were crumbly a bit stale even...boo!
I actually had this drink another time sans the cookies...yum!
Bel Amer's mendiants...dark chocolate with all sorts of goodies on top....mmm!
A friend gave me this dark one and a white one. I gave the white one (which had a candied orange slice on top) to Satoshi....thank you!
I used the last summer roll wrappers to make lunch...ham, cheese, lettuce and some red roasted bell pepper cream cheese spread...so easy and so good!
Tea time at Kitahama Retro...I recently tried their scones with Tamakikat.
The ginger scone was better than the earl grey scone but both were good with the creamed butter.
Disliking this kemushi (literally hairy bug), it is the caterpillar of an Indian Fritillary.
In Japan, you see a lot of these during Spring and beginning of Summer.
Don't touch them though, they apparently have quills that make you itch and swell.
The chocolate coconut macaron at Starbucks is deliciously coconutty.
I probably would call it a macaroon more than a macaron though. I think they should have added a wee bit more chocolate too.
Caught a glimpse of this Mini wagon in our neighborhood, luckily my finger didn't ruin the whole shot.
I recently tried this...Gari-gari kun..."gari-gari" is the onomatopoetic sound when you eat one of these ice bars...this was perfect on a humid night.
Oh and afterwards, check the stick, if something is written on it, chances are you've won something...unfortunately I didn't with this bar.
I'm off to Hawaii today looking forward to spending time with my parents, grandma, friends and family...talk to you from the other side of the world!
