I went to Chinatown today to buy ingredients for a hom bao dinner I'm going to fix for Annie tomorrow (I'm going to try a new dough recipe, but it will be other wise my usual dinner of hom baos, hot and sour soup, and fake tripe). I went to the same stores I always do, but saw interesting sights that I hadn't noticed before:
A giant tin of custard powder, next to a gallon jar of mayonnaise,
these terrible rat traps,
and these poor tilapia in their crowded tank.
