A couple of days ago, we went to Renton, Washington. There’s a Uwajimaya there (where I got the narutomaki and kamaboko from previous reviews) and a store called Sierra Fish & Pets.
We recently lost our guinea pig Louise and thought maybe we could find a new one there. Well, we did. There were a couple in there – apparently someone decided to drop off a box with two guinea pigs and a lop eared rabbit and leave it in a grocery store parking lot on a sunny day. Pretty crappy. We got Myrtle two days ago and after discussing it, I thought we should get the other one too. So, as I type this our new guinea pig is getting comfy in her new digs. Since Miles’ birthday is only a couple days, we let him name it. He says her name is spelled Bafia, but it sounds like bay-vuh. So, we have Petunia, Betty, Myrtle, and Bafia.
I also got noodles when I went to that Renton Uwajiamaya – they have interesting varieties there the others don’t have. Honestly, I’m torn about that place. Uwajimaya (the Seattle location) is where I first learned about how many varieties of instant noodles couple be on an aisle, and got my first ‘oh wow look at all that exotic food I want to try it’ shock to the brain when I was 8 or 9 years old. But these days, it’s just not as amazing as it was back then to me – kind of expensive and most things I’ve reviewed (not their fault).
Well, I haven’t reviewed this one, so let’s give it a try!
