America Fair

image

At Aeon they are /were having an American fair.   Some of it made a reasonable amount of sense, sale on American cherries and what have you, but what greeted you as you walked into the store was American cup ramen.
Sometimes I just laugh out loud, and I did while taking a picture.   No one tried to stop me, I’m scary.
Anyway, I decided to try one, and after a few seconds of trying to figure out which was least likely to make me vomit, I settled on “chili hot dog” instead of “cheese burger” (sic.)
And I even got around to eating it… at 2 am when I’m not prone to making the best choices anyway.

before adding water, doesn’t look so bad

My opinion was it wasn’t as bad as it sounds, and in the end rehydrated hot dog is not significantly different from hot dogs that have been rotating at a 7-11 all day (if you have never craved them at least once, I pity you, sometimes you just need something terrible.)   The sauce wasn’t all that bad, but at the same time, I also didn’t drink it because, well… OK yeah I still think I might have thrown up if I did.
But um 3/10 stars I guess.

I think an American moved in

we call $30 grapes “wine.” But seriously, half price isn’t close to enough.

Chinatown

Nothing new, except the cherry blossom stickers on the gate.

This label-everything-in-Chinese really struck me as stupid this time. I mean, I’m used to the Irish bar but sigh. Just sigh.

 

Also, in America, PEOPLE DON’T WALK in front of you when you TAKE A PHOTO, even on a cellphone.  I wanted a little flag to wave I was so happy. T_T
