Today was an exceedingly humid day. I felt as if I could wring out the air I walked through. After a week of minimal exercise—my post-10k/work out break of 2014—I decided to get off my lazy ass and go on a run. Actually, my body starts to itch after not working out for a while, and it feels out of sorts. I’ve also been reading Once a Runner now which has the most accurate description of the pre-race jitters and overall experience I have ever encountered. Reading it makes me feel as if I were running a race. Although, I do not envy nor do I wish to replicate the protagonist’s training regimen. These days, I run for clarity.
Okay I guess my point is that after a painful run in sauna like weather, I was ready to escape the heat. Dad has been quite curious about the take out food from Aquatic Addiction Development, so we drove all the way there and got some of the hot, already prepared foods. Everyone around us was ordering sushi or sashimi to go. Even dad remarked, “Hmm, it seems like you should get sushi if you come here.” Yup. Too bad neither dad nor LY eats raw fish! The bottom photo features some live lobsters for sale.
We did get two delicious panna cottas, matcha green tea and sesame flavored. The texture was exceedingly fine and the custard was rich with the flavors without being overwhelming or too sweet.
A wholesale fruit market neighbors the fish market, so we stopped by and purchased our second box of mangoes for the week, bringing the grand total to 33 mangoes!
