Post 23... what do you see?



Saffron tagged me for this latest meme variant.

The instructions:

1. Delve into your blog archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
5. Tag five people to do the same.

My 23rd post was Welcome to Tokyo, as I babbled giddily about my first impressions of Nihon.

The fifth sentence (excluding my meandering photo captions) was:

"In 30 seconds a bowl of noodles is handed to you with a smudge of wasabi on the side."
I was relating my first ever lunch in Japan--a simple bowl of noodles in a commuter noodle house at the train station (where you order via a vending machine and stand up as your slurp your noodles!).

I miss Japan. I would go back in an instant!

You can read the rest of the post here. The Japan posts petered out I know--even though I have a tonne of photos to upload. *sigh* I'll get them up, ah, eventually...

To continue the trip down archive lane, I tag
1. Reid from OnoKineGrindz
2. Nic from Baking Sheet
3. Sarah from The Delicious Life
4. Niki from Esurientes
5. Cathy from My Little Kitchen.

Happy delving!

    what a great idea. I'm still a relative newbie (only 82 posts so far)but it was fun rereading one of my early posts.

    Hi Sarah - Yeah I was a little worried about what I would find! I find my early camera work cringeworthy but ahh well!

    Hi Ruth - Memes are everywhere! It's always nice to delve back into the archives every now and then isn't it.

    Hi AG,
    I just read your Welcome to Tokyo post. Great pictures! (But I have to tell you those mutsutake mushrooms in the pic. are not the most expensive ones... expensive ones cost like 5,000 to 6,000 yen each...Crazy.)

    Hi Obachan - Thanks. I loved Japan! It is such a foodie heaven. Going to the department store foodhalls was like heaven! =)

    5,000-6,000 yen each? Which variety of mushrooms are they?!?

    Hi AG,

    My post was up and it's boring. It was an announcement for the 4th IMBB which was hosted by Pim. *sigh*

    Once a bore, always a bore...right?

    Hi Reid - I prefer to view it as a reflection of your enthusiastic participation in international foodblogging events. Not to mention your infectious encouragement to others... =)
