what is the MAGIC
it’s called mochi!
it’s like ice cream in a soft skin!
also, it’s fucking amazing!
This is もちアイス (mochiaisu) and the “soft skin” is pounded rice cake. The white stuff you see on the outside is powdered sugar so they won’t get sticky. It’s very delicious on a hot day and you can get these at the right self-serve frozen yogurt joints. Unfortunately North America sells one mochiaisu for a dollar and some cents whereas in Japan you can get these by the boxful in any supermarket.
You can get these in a box at trader joes
I’ve been feeling so cynical lately and it’s only getting worse -____-
Saw Philip Glass in Ithaca on Saturday night
My sister LOVES Philip Glass and I started listening to him about two years ago and started loving his work as well and so when I saw that there were tickets on Spotify, I just did it live and bought two. It was such an amazing show, and seeing how much my sister appreciated it made it even better.
I think this is the first time I’ve ever gotten someone a gift that really, truly meant something very special to them and it was such an amazing feeling. So thankful for moments like these in life.
