Scavenger Hunt Sunday | The 5 Senses, etc.



 

Five senses – This was a bit of a challenge for me.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to make a collage of five photos with each one depicting an interpretation of each of the senses.  Then I remembered the set of Chinese flash cards that my cousin gave to Zoë and looked through to find characters that would lend to an interpretation of each of the five senses.

Child – Zoë drinking “tea” at dimsum.  She has graduated from having to sit on a high chair or a booster seat at this restaurant.  Now she sits on two chairs stacked together to give her more height.  (Don’t worry;  it’s pretty stable.)Child

DiningMy absolute favorite Japanese food:  Tuna Tartare Rice.   I’d have this every day if I could.  It’s fatty tuna chopped up/minced and seasoned, –raw, – a raw egg, spring onions, sesame seeds, and laver strips –all mixed together with pearl rice.Dining

This is what it looks like all mixed up.Dining2

Night – Looking out our windows, we see a number of cruise ships go by every night, but this one is a huge one.  I think in the eight years that we’ve been living here, we’ve seen it pass only a couple of times before.  It doesn’t look that big here, but this photo had been taken from pretty high up.  We saw it once from the seaside promenade and it was like a ginormous building, several storeys high, a few blocks wide.

SkyWe took at hike up the peak next to where we live.  I took my camera along (of course!) and that gave me an excuse to stop and catch my breath as I huffed and puffed worked my way up.  We waited all weekend for a super typhoon that never made it here, but there probably will be a few drops of rain later… maybe?  I don’t remember where I heard this, but someone once told me that dragonflies are a sign that it’s about to rain.  Fact or fallacy?
