That morning, I was greeted by huge spiders that were conveniently dismissed by the locals there as normal. Oh gawd, spiders the size of your head are definitely not normal. Look how intense they look unclose. And mind you, they are everywhere. One thing I learnt is that, they kinda mind their own business. So, besides scaring the shit out of me, they are so fine.
Not sure if I’ve talked about these previously. But this bright pink thing is umeboshi and I’m really missing these because we have the really good ones on the table – fresh and organic. And it tastes so good mixed in with rice and all. Actually, it is really an acquired taste and I made myself like it gradually. Because, why not?
Okay this masterpiece of his is called floating island which is also called île flottante. In french cuisine, it also means eggs in snow! And it is basically meringue with vanilla custard! I’m so happy that there was so much leftover of these vanilla custard and cookie crumbs because it was breakfast for the next few days! And we just ate it like that in a cup.
