this and that

Did you watch the Queen’s funeral procession, it was so impressive! 

Watching the guards march also brought back memories of marching in parades for high school band and we had to step in the horse poop if it was in our path so as not to ruin our formation..ew

On Monday, it was a holiday, we were waiting for typhoon Nanmadol (#14) to pass, but since it was sunny out, we went down the street, even if it was krazy humid...

and came upon a tiny pocket park with all these higanbana (spider lilies)…so pretty!
I had bought this for lunch, but realized (just before cooking) it is the type that you eat as is without cooking it.

Note to self: read the label instead of buying it because of the cute packaging...sigh.

Umeshu update (month 3): the liquer is getting darker and all the ume have sunk to the bottom, shriveling and all the rock sugar has melted.

Today is another holiday, Autumn Equinox...

it is supposed to rain this weekend and it may also turn into another typhoon.

So, I went to pick up groceries yesterday so we won't have to go out.
I also tried this nikuman (manapua/meat bun) made by LIFE, a supermarket, this one only uses ingredients made in Japan.

It was delicious, though it could've used a little more filling.

Have a safe weekend.

Rowena, I like to buy things in even numbers so we can split things "fairly" :)

Take care!
