Bougainvillea Bower
I just love how these bowers of bougainvillea blossom all over the city!

Pet Pictures
 This is our little Mochi cat all worn out sleeping with her head resting on my drying mat! Not where I like her to lay, but too cute not to snap a picture.
 Peanut always looks guilty when we take her picture.
 Mochi, you don't fit in that basket, silly kitty!
 Mochi decided to nap in my lettuce pot.
We went to the groomer to get Peanut a trim and she got shaved instead. Poor naked puppy!

Noodles in the Making
 I pass this noodle marker on the way back and forth to the eye hospital. Sometimes I just stop and watch because seeing those noodles being bounced and stretched and twisted before being dropped in hot water is just so interesting. I've never seen a woman flipping noodles. My guess is that long arms are an important requirement.
In the States, what is called lo mein is a derivative of la mian which is literally "spicy noodles" and absolutely nothing like lo mein in the US. La mian is often eaten as breakfast here and usually has a topping of pickled vegetables or greens. So good. I could eat a bowl right now.
