The new Harry Potter book came out today. We went to the Farmer's Market at UCI this morning and happened to walk by a local bookstore... and they had 2 copies left. At first we considered waiting and going to some big place like Barnes and Noble or Costco to pick up a discounted copy of the new book... but then we thought, "hey, we need to support these local places more!" So we bought the book; paid $30 for it. Anyway, later on at the Target in the Spectrum, they had it on sale for $17. Still, I find consolation knowing that we supported a local bookstore!
The store owner gave me a few temporary Harry Potter tatoos. So I HAD to put it on:
Can't see it clearly? Here's a closeup:
So anyway, we walked to the Spectrum and spent a few hours there walking around, picking up some stuff. Ying was embarassed! Hah! It didn't bother me. Why? Because I didn't have to look at myself anyway. ho ho ho!
When we got home I was hungry. Armed with my new Harry Potter tatoo, I used a makeshift wand (chopstick) to cook some "lo po gau" ... hmm there's nothing to describe this in English. It's yummy; trust me!
The spell worked...
And while we were at the Farmer's Market, we got some roasted corn. Ying was eating it and sitting in the car. She looked like a Taiwan gangster. So I took a picture:
Until next time, Potter fans...
