The husband has been kind enough to put up with my asian cravings as I try to feed my homesickness. We've had hot pot three times in two weeks. (Hot pot is a fondue-like family meal that Chinese people eat. You cook meat and veggies in the pot of broth in the middle of the table.) It is a long meal, and you continuously eat and talk the whole time. It has to be one of my most beloved comfort meals.
We stopped by Uwajimaya to shop for ingredients and I had to stop by the bookstore and couldn't resist picking up the April issue of Fudge magazine. I saw so many pictures that I wanted to scan (trust me, I already edited!).
The pop of red was especially refreshing compared to all the soft and pastels that you expect for springtime. The girl in the red pleated dress on the bottom left has the perfect outfit!
Beautiful florals might not be showcased as the main theme, but I found them everywhere and the prints made me happy. There's something about these florals that are new and unique.
Overalls/suspenders, glasses/menswear inspired themes were everywhere. I remembered back in my college dorm days when my friend Michelle and I saw Joey (Katie Holmes) on Dawson Creek wearing a pair of Gap loosely fitting overalls, and immediately going to buy the same pair the day after. (Perhaps I shouldn't have admitted that I watched Dawson's Creek, or that I watched it in college - thus dating me!). No snarky comments, husband!
I couldn't help but post couple more goodies! Don't you just love the blue wall with writing on it? Fudge does a superb job telling pretty stories about ordinary situations.
Oh how I wish the plain ride to to Asia didn't take so long...
