After an hour’s incessant yawning, and a full day’s shivering, I went to bed early for a Saturday night, around 11. It was only after I was cocooned snuggly under three blankets that I realized I’d forgotten to write my blog for the day. So my compensatory Sunday morning blog is as follows.
The weather was dreary and Geoff had a hang over, so it was a bit uneventful. We got up early and walked to McDonald’s for breakfast. It was extremely crowded and we ended up eating outside on a bench because people were sat all around reading their newspapers or sleeping after they’d finished their food so nobody else could use the tables. It’s a good thing I don’t speak their language because I probably would have been quite rude to someone.
From there we walked two or three miles to a place called Food Materials Mall. This must be some sort of restaurant/bakery supply shop. It had all sorts of kitchen equipment, food packaging, and bulk ingredients. It gave me tons of ideas, should I ever get an order while in Taiwan. But I came home with a rubber spatula, a silicon muffin pan, a potato masher, and a digital food scale. I can’t wait to try out some of my new gadgets. Chocolate banana muffins are in my near future.
Once we made it back, we chilled on the couch for a while to give my feet a rest. Frozen to the core, I decided to try to lay down in the bed to warm up, and even though I managed to take about an hour’s nap, I never really got warm. Plans for dinner changed, when we heard from our long lost friend, Gillian, who had been in the UK for a month. We walked to dinner at Uzo, where I proceeded to consume way to many calories. It was a lovely evening, but for some reason I was exhausted. I blame it on the cold, and the sixish miles I logged on my new purple trainers.
I somehow still managed to sleep until 10 today. We’re going to the diner and Fengjia night market. I also plan to do some cooking and baking. I think the rain has stopped. Here’s to lazy Sundays. Feel the love.
