[Almost] Home Sweet HomePosted: July 28, 2011
I realize I’ve been MIA the past couple days – reasons being:
1) I’ve been rather uninteresting the past couple days as I’ve spent the majority of them catching up on summer school projects and assignments that were due, and attempting (keyword 😉 ) to get ready for finals next week.
2) When I was not being a bookworm I was out trying to enjoy my last couple days in Hong Kong.
I’m currently en route home and just got off a near 13-hour flight from Hong Kong to Los Angeles and am currently in LAX waiting for my connecting flight home.
Home is where I get to have my favorite foods, eat my favorite breakfasts, and bake whatever I want whenever I want. Even though I had a kitchen to use in Hong Kong, ingredients were quite sparce. It was either too expensive or I just couldn’t find it. I’m sure if I had looked a little harder I would’ve eventually found some things, but some are just plain unavailable.
They do sell kombucha though. I hardly ever drink it, but since the flavor sounded mighty appealing at that particular moment I made an impulse buy.
I didn’t realize until after I had bought it that I had paid a little over $5 for it even though it was on sale. I actually don’t know how much kombucha usually costs in the states, but I sure hope it’s not 5 bucks a pop.
At $5 a bottle, I figured I might as well drink it out of some fine china. And that’s exactly what I did…
Great flavor, btw.
I think drinking Kombucha may have just about been as exciting as it got the past two days, other than finding something in the fridge.
And inside that bright yellow & black box?
A mixed berry napoleon!
In all my excitement, I forgot to take a picture of the whole cake.
Just picture this slice times 10 and you’ll have a picture of the full napoleon. Sometimes we just have to use our imaginations 🙂
This is seriously one of the BEST napoleons ever. It’s officially joined my list of favorite sweets.

2 and a half hours until my flight home!
