Went to Chinatown so I could enjoy my last few days of freedom ( I start school again on Monday, boo!). Although I'll be finally writing my thesis this semester, I think it'll be a good semester; the professor I TA for is awesome... not crazy like the one I TA'd for last semester. I also don't have as many classes (since I'm supposed to be writing). Still, I'm going to miss going to bed at 2:00 and waking up at 10:30! Anyway, thought y'all might like seeing some pictures of weird fruits and stuff they have in Chinatown:
Chinese dimsum shaped like carrots and various other delectables (sorry for the glare!)
Waterplant for fresh water ponds... only $1 each!
Sugarcane stalks... they can be cut up and sucked on... like a natural sugar lollipop!
Daikon, turnips, eggplant, potatoes and taro
Assorted beans, scallions, onions, and peppers
Bunches of dragonfruit (pink), long-on (green) and mangosteen (mangosteens are sooo cute.. they're the dark purple ones!)Fresh gingers and bird of paradise flowers
