We arrived at lunch time. Jared and I had a yummy dish...not sure what it is called, but I know where to find it again. It was a mound of rice, covered with an egg, some sprouts and some sort of meat-like substance - just a tiny bit.
The other kids opted for something a bit more familiar.
The kids thought this was a cool movie poster....I obligingly took the photo, dodging the person sleeping under the poster.
The candy store was fun to visit. We bought a few things to try - all good. I'm not sure what they are called...but again....I know where to find them again. ::grin:: I did hear a comment about a candy store that sells dried fish. ::snort:: Nolan spotted the strawberry kit kats. I doubt we'd had a kit kat bar in YEARS stateside but we are enjoying the various flavors here. LOL
Bathrooms - WOW are they accommodating. There was a row of Squatty Potties, a row of Western toilets, seats for potty training, urinal and low sinks for kids to use....WOW. Stacia and I notee a container on the wall. She pushed and it smelled like air freshener or perfume so that is what we did with it. Later in the day, at a bathroom on another side of the mall, we found this sign......
::snort:: ::chortle:: I love it! What a great idea to have nice smelling toilet cleaner in public restrooms....and instructions in English so that all the silly Americans don't smell like toilet cleaner. ::snort:: Stacia heartily approves of the sinks just her size.
A big hit for us was a huge Y100 store. WOOT! I bought some tatami mats and beach towels for our next lake/ocean outing. The kids bought some plants, which we'll plant to give us hope that a home will follow to place them in. ::snort:: The kids were introduced at this store to the practice of checking out and bagging your own items.
Those were GREAT croissants!
I ASKED - they said I could take the photo. Actually I wanted a photo only of the one on the left and the sign - BREAD FACTORY - but they giggled and both jumped in....so I took it even though the sign was blocked. My older two were mortified...but I asked! Renee said it was ok. How can you help but try to learn the language to better communicate with such sweet clerks? They are very good natured when I slaughter the language...most anyway. ::snort::
