Sandals, Jellyfish and Sa Dingding
A few miscellaneous items this evening, with no attempt whatsoever to tie them together:
Everybody wears sandals here. All the time. That makes me ever so happy! I figure I won't have to put on socks for the next three years, and my toes think that is just grand. I plan to amass a lovely collection of skimpy flat shoes--every shop that even sort of sells shoes has cute sandals, or at least flip flops. I may be the only woman on this whole island with unvarnished toenails, though. That's going to change pretty soon!
Last night we went to a fancy Cantonese restaurant. Most of the menu was New Year's set dinners, which we couldn't do because there were just the two of us, but we enjoyed our food just the same. The MO was a bit more adventurous than I was. He actually tried the venison tendon. I just drank the soup it was in (which was delicious). We also had jellyfish, which was tasty. It's a very odd consistency, sort of crunchy feeling without actually being crunchy. Rubbery isn't the right description either. I'm sure there's a word for it, but heck if I know what it might be.
And finally, we saw the video for this song a few days ago and it's been stuck in my head ever since. I finally gave up and bought the album, and haven't stopped playing it.
