the adventures of yoshi

a trip to mitsuwa marketplace…

Posted in Friends & Familia by yoshi on May 13, 2011

the bf’s mom was in town for mother’s day and we decided to take the zipcar out to edgewater, nj to visit mitsuwa and all the other little shops around the area.

first of all. I LOVE DRIVING.

second of all. i’m an angry driver =X but i’ll leave that for another post.

it was nice to get away from brooklyn and the city and go somewhere unfamiliar. i loved the market because not only was it an awesome shopping experience, but their little food court – OMG, i’ll go back just for the food!

we spent over $250 worth of groceries (thanks to his mom lmao) and out of that, got a new rice cooker too! also bought a few mags from the bookstore and a hello kitty notepad from the novelty shop across the way hehehehe.

mmmmm gyoza and fried rice

crab legs!

the igei's

i want this toilet seat...

i don't even know what these are for

rice cookers galore

look very closely... so wait - i can get a NEW nose?!

after all that shopping... i needed dessert! got a parfait =)

across the street at the bookstore – picked up a few mags… these jap mags, in my opinion, are the originators of the “street style photo.”
