I can't believe it's almost the end of May! Just where has the time gone!?!
I should be busy packing packing packing for our move next weekend.. but instead, I'm mooching on the couch surrounded by a mountain of tissues... because I'm sick sick sick.... and let me tell you, I'm the biggest sook when I'm sick!
I blame my sickness on my plane ride! I was fine when I left Taiwan... I was fine for my 10 hour layover in Hong Kong where I got to catch up with two girls I went to high school with.. makes you feel old when you can say you've not seen someone in over a decade!! But my voice had disappeared by the time I arrived in Heathrow... luckily I managed to escape the airport in the space of half an hour with passport stamped and luggage in tow!
|Our first stop was afternoon tea on the 102th floor of the Ritz Carlton.|
I was also preoccupied playing with the momster's new blender. She bought the local equivalent of a Vitamix and it's TOTALLY made me want one of my own.. I mean I've wanted one for a long time.. but now I REALLY REALLY want one!
|I even made the batter for this Chocolate Earl Grey cake in the blender!|
Don't mind that the momster attacked it with her hands! Hence why there is a weird chunk missing from the corner!
A friend of the momster's also introduced us to a fantastic Japanese restaurant in Taipei.. where I ate what is quite possibly THE BEST sashimi and nigiri I've had IN MY LIFE! Seriously... it was so good, we went back again the next week.
|The shrimp heads were still moving when this arrived at our table.|
The shrimp was so fresh and sweet.. it was delectable!
