This post is definitely a mish mosh of things that have happened in the last two months. So let's do a quick recap, shall we? First, there was a fair going on several blocks from my house so we clearly had to check that out! We found food carts, stands selling clothes, bunnies/cats/birds for sale and a few rides!
There was also a seafood of buffet. No, I didn't eat this rubbery imitation-looking seafood. I couldn't do it. It looks like it belongs in a Fisher Price playset. Century eggs - which are literally eggs from last century that are fermented - anyone interested?
Roti! Now that's where I can get down. Rotis are basically Thailand's version of crepes. And these weren't just your normal roti on the street...these were GIANT roti! The guys running the stand were really friendly and joking around having a great time so we had to stop and get one.
Nikki and I decided to take a ride on the Ferris wheel although we didn't realize how tight of a squeeze it would be. We managed to get ourselves into one little cart which was very cage like. After a few turns, we were done but the people running the cart either didn't understand us or just thought it was hysterical that two full grown adults were inside this tiny little cart and kept us going around and around.
Now that the fair is over, what's next? Oh food! Of course! Angela and I tried to meet for dinner one night and our first option was sadly closed. We drove down the round until we happened upon this place and decided why not. You pick food from a buffet - vegetables, meats, noodles - and cook them in one pot that has a grill on top and a bowl on the bottom to make a soup.
Sports day came around again, but this time it was the kids' turn to play. The teachers started off the day at 8am playing a game of chairball against the students and then continued the day watching relay races and dance-off competitions.
Halloween! The years of trick or treating and school dances have come to an end. Now we're adults and instead we make spooky dinners and get dressed up for our own amusement. Catty and Angela hosted and deliciously devilish meal for us and it was incredible!
The menu included pumpkin soup, handmade pasta (rolled with a candle of course - we have limited supplies here) with a cauliflower version of alfredo sauce, orange jack-o-lanterns filled with salad with a beet dressing, and a watermelon for dessert.
Finally, as I mentioned in a previous post...Haley and I moved into our new house that has an amazing kitchen. Thankfully my roommate loves to cook and I come home to these beautiful meals at night - romantic BLT's anyone?
