01/30/2005: "A scale fell out of her eye"
This afternoon Kana, a writer for a Japanese magazine, came to taste my "soymilk hot pot" (which hasn't been introduced in my menu). She loved it so much she said "a scale fell out of my eye." That is how we describe when pleasantly remarkably amazingly surprised. She never thought soymilk could be so delicious. Early evening Daisuke stopped by because his uncle next door is taking him out for dinner. I gave him my rice krispie treat with green tea and after a first bite he said, "It's so good it gave me chills!"
