Mimi-JieJie, sushi, Coldstone = !!!
Today is special. I got to meet up and have lunch with my Mimi-JieJie and huzi-daddy (鬍子爸爸). If the names don't make sense, it's because they're childhood nicknames my sister and I gave them when we were little children. Anyways...She is my Father's second brother's daughter. Most of my happy childhood memories are with her in Taiwan. So she is a big part of the reason why I love Taiwan so much. We ate at the old 1946 Japanese restaurant in Ximending shopping area. I don't remember the name, but it's a very famous establishment. It consistently has a line outside and the two floor restaurant is always packed with more people than should be at a single table. The sushi was really good and extremely large cuts. I never got to see the price tag on this thick sashimi cuts, but I'm going to assume it doesn't come cheap. Thank you Mimi JieJie (姐姐). Afterwards I went shopping around and found another pair of jeans I liked from Samual and Kevin. Semi-shiny black jeans, daring and a little out of my comfort zone. But oddly enough, cheaper than Shilin night market, so I purchased it. Hopefully i'll get more comfortable with it. Just before we left the market, we decided to rest up at the Ximen ColdStone Creamery.They have the flower Expo special flavors which I assume would not be available anywhere else in the world and for a limited time. It was delicious. It tasted like roses. Well not like actually eating the plant, but eating the fragrance of a rose. Excellent and unique! There were two flower flavors, so I'll definitely have to try to other one next visit if the specials are still available.
