All the fun things I do outside of piano playing

Seaside Market March 28, 2009

Ray took us to 九份 Gio Fan (again, don’t know if the spelling is right, meaning Nine Portions) for the day, a large gathered market place of so many different kinds of traditional foodshops in old traditional houses. It is my first time seeing all the goodies in the books I just bought from Eslite Bookshop alive — really can’t wait to make them myself!! Quite moody even in this uncomfortable 100% humidity rainy day.

Tasted all the vegan treats we found, quite a lot of them, and my new found favorite thing is Salt Pickled Shredded Daikon Wrapped in Sticky Rice Cake (mochi) — sweet on the outside, savory inside — quite subtle.
