We have three weeks left of the Asian Snack Challenge. Tonight’s one was successful.
My friend saw some pocky-like vanilla dipsticks.
‘Mmm a vanilla dipstick. That’s me’, he said.
We saw many interesting things, again. I am more and more drawn to things that look cute, but are unidentifiable – with little English description on the packaging.
These are chip-like snacks with sushi-like images on the packaging. I bet they look nothing like the packaging suggests.
This is green pumpkin juice. After last time’s pumpkin seed debacle, my friend was not touching this drink.
This is something with a frog on. I don’t know?
This is maybe apple juice? Maybe tomato juice?
These are mini icecream cone looking sweets.
This is a cat that likes pineapple.
Ola! Jack and Jill Piattos and orange sangararia! Ola!
We termed his snack ‘A little bit of Japanish’! Japanese crossed with Spanish.
I thought his choices were a little boring at first. After all, he did just pick a packet of potato chips of the shelf without much consideration or commentary. But he reminded me ‘I went Japanish’.
Due to me eating a ridiculous amount of junk food before and during uni today, clearly too disgusting to spell out in separate words – onesmallboxofpotatomashies,threekfcdrumsticks,bottleofcoke,lordofthefrieswithcheeseandgravy -I was not up for much food at the Asian Snack Challenge tonight.
I was drawn to the cute, impractical dust collecting toys.
A chicken, as featured in Get that sausage!
This thing here is a duck with a plant stem in its head. The stem moves in the light.
As the train pulled into North Melbourne station, we did a bit of a pantomime with Plastic Chicken, and we were reminded of that other chicken on video incident. Boris the Chicken, a video made by the North Melbourne Football Club. Coincidence?
Here is our pantomime. Much more g-rated.
