Kawaii Days, A Special Birthday Shoutout, And The Future Of Minxden!!

Salutations to all! I want to share with you my "Kawaii Day", which was last Friday...Kawaii Day should be pretty self explanatory, it's my one day a week where I do everything "Kawaii" or indulge in my favorite cultures (oriental cultures)...After eating a nice hot bowl of Fu (Vietnamese noodle soup) at Pho Nugyen, we hop over right next door to the Vietnamese Food market to get some yummy goodies from their side of the globe! Since I am not cooking o much right now (most cooking stuff is packed in boxes) I am taking on a mover's diet of fast easy convenient snacky foods, so I chose all that you see here! They are generally low in calories and very high in flavor! Plus, in high stressful times, my appetite always diminishes, so these small portions keep my tummy pretty happy! Let' break down the goodies I got!

Ahhhhh oolong tea.....aids in digestion (I have many digestion issues since I am sans a gallbladder) I was very shocked to find this tea at the very cheap price of $2.99! Oolong tea is usually very expensive, like 25 bucks per ONE OUNCE! So by golly I got me a box, and it tastes great! for those who have digestive issues, had their gallbladders taken out, drink this tea, it does wonders for me!

Of course if anyone knows me well enough, seaweed is my version of crack! I can never get enough, never eat enough! What you see here are dried seaweed strips in regular and in barbecue flavor...mmmmm so so yummy!!!

These are really good, does taste strongly of strawberry, and they are alot smaller than appearing in the picture, maybe no bigger than the palm of my hand...

This is flower candy....yes they have floral notes with a slight sugary taste. They are surprisingly not bad at all!

An old time favorite, you can get these pretty much anywhere, and pink strawberry is my favorite! mmmmm gotta love strawberry icing covering a biscuit stick!

I absolutely went nuts for these!! little biscuits filled with either strawberry (pictured here) chocolate (already demolished through) and vanilla which I haven't tried yet...but warning, they are very filling, just a few will go a long way!

Had these many times before, they are crab chips! they do taste of seafood, slightly spicy and salty....they are like pringles, you can't eat just one!

Tapioca pearls! I love these in bubble tea, but I am knownto savour them with honey and/or yogurt. They only take 5 minutes to cook in boiling water!

Peace to all of my readers! hope you all enjoyed raiding my kitchen cabinets!

Here is a sneak peak of the new minxden studio in my new house! I will be completely moved in in about 12 days! The walls will be changing to what is called "banana peel yellow"...can't wait!

A very special birthday shout out goes to none other than my baby sister, Ally who gave me the title of a sister 19 years ago on this very day! She has been a part of my life for 19 years and I cannot fathom the thought of being siblingless! I love you Allycat, my ray of sunshine!
