Sunday was a Thai festival in which many people Thai-ed one on.
Not me though, I only had one Singha beer to go with lunch. I found the food to be tasty though rather bland.
(A disturbing aside. After the fest, I went home and crashed for five hours and didn't eat until lunch the next day. Today, I had tummy troubles all day. Perhaps, Thai food is not for me.)
Cool veggie carving.
Stinky Durian. A friend gave me a bite and I didn't really like it. I mixed it with Earl Gray Tea and it was much more delicious. I was so thirsty I had a Pitcher of Durian Gray!*
*Kudos to Alex for the pun.
One vendor had these very nifty metal models of our favourite characters.
The Predator was only 100 bucks yet the Yoda would set you back 350!
Not much else happening at the fest so I wandered around downtown and popped into Loft.
Woohoo! I managed to show up in time for the end of the Ultraman World tour. Lots and lots of overpriced goodies for sale!
Such as... notepads and masking tapes*,
I bought one of the hand towels designed by Shinzi Katoh
two of the masking tapes with which I got a free sticker with my purchase.
This very cool bag came with...
the two bottles of Sake that I purchased.
I like how the Kaiju play a part in the production of the rice wine as shown on the box.
I have a friend whose birthday is forthcoming. This will be a nice gift.
Finally, here is a giant plush Ultraman that I snagged at UFO Catcher the other day. He'll be hanging from my ceiling!
