Junk I Got Overseas/ JunkBot's Kitchen

 I got a couple of puppets in Thailand and Burma. This is a Thai Angel. It hangs in the corner of my room off the curtain rail.
 I found this little beauty on the streets of Tokyo! What an awesome souvineer. I love it.
This is the poodle I bought in Paris at the flea market. Its a wind up toy that plays a song and the ears move and the tail wags and the mouth/eyes open and shut. I bought it from a man who must have been in his 80s or 90s (or a 60 year old who'd had a really hard life) and he told me its from the 1950s. Poodles are so Parisian :)

I'm not just all about junk either. I looove to cook. Here's the recipe I came up with last week. A stir fry of silken tofu, egg and tomato on rice. It is delicious.


Basically you stir fry the tofu, tomato and egg in a lovely mixture of garlic, dried chillis, soy sauce, fish sauce, shaoxing cooking wine and a drizzle of sesame oil. Yuuuummmmm. Serve on rice.

Thanks for reading :)

  5. Haha, I love the japanese doll. What's it made from? Ceramic?

    I think I've seen a similar poodle before, when i was a kid, but that would be highly unlikely since I'm from S. America. Still, it looks familiar.
