Bento Box Bits of everything



Been staying at Cindy's grandma's house for the past 3 days now. This is more like the home-life I knew during my summers in HK. Dirty, grimy, hard-water stained old-person's home. Just like my own grand parents' place. That was even dirtier and I had to sleep on a mat or a fold-out vinyl bed. It must be the humidity because everything is rusted here. Glad we came during this time since there aren't that many mosquitoes so far. And the ones we encounter, Cindy is adept at killing them with the electric tennis racquet. The alley-markets remind me of when my mom took me around as a kid in HK. Where else do you find fish vendors on one side and cheap clothing on the other, a mere 10 ft away.

The food is delicious here. Although everything has corn starch. It helps to fill you up I suppose.
