Was in the mood for a Stir-Fry over Soba Noodles, so ran over to the H-Mart, that giant Korean Grocery Store, where there is one entire aisle devoted to Noodles, and there are still more on the next aisle. Very small price difference, so I went with the Organic, and surprise - these Japanese noodles were made in Australia. And not just one Organic brand, at least 3 different brands were Australian. And they were exceptionally good!
My favorite "flower" in the world is the Bird of Paradise. When I was growing up in Southern California, they fascinated me. If you've familiar with them, you probably think of them as about a metre high, but they get much taller. There is one off my second floor balcony that is currently blooming although the Date Palm next to it makes it hard to tell.
