Pineapple lumps, well travelled

Without any research, I would say that Pineapple lumps are unique to New Zealand. In fact, it is one of the few remaining icons in “lollie land” that are left. Just recently Cadburys New Zealand discontinued the sweet lines of Jaffas, Sniffters and Tangy fruits.

Whenever I went to the movies, I always used to prefer Snifters. Ahem, when the movies had an intermission that is.

A lone pineapple lump was found at the bottom of my shopping bag, had survived the trip from New Zealand, Shanghai, South Korea and then onto the void. It has since found a home.

Good-bye lollies.


Big bag, little substance

There’s something about having a big bag. To me it means you don’t have to try to pack it well. A few items of clothing, underwear and the like and I’m away. Sadly over the past two weeks it’s gotten progressively heavier. Aside from two bottles of Worcester sauce, and Jiang’s extra clothing,  I can’t account for the weight gain. Dirty underwear can’t weigh that much.

New and updated big bag.
