Remember what Bilbo used to say...

" It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to."

Kowloon Adventures

This was not our first trot over to Kowloon. We were shopping for something and we got distracted by the music and groups of people. We ended up just hanging out and playing in around.

Durian the King of Asian fruits

"It smelled like you'd buried somebody holdinga big wheel of Stilton in his arms, then dug him up a few weeks later." ~Anthony Bourdain (1956 --)  

My take on Durian fruit...It smells like soured milk crossed with stinky Frito feet and  moldy oranges mashed together to make a custard paste. Have I tried it yet? NO, I hate to admit it, but I can't get pass the smell. I am not jumping up and down to try it, but since we are going on our sixth year in Asia... We should try it...we try so many other things (like goat balls) without over thinking it.

It is the SMELL! It is really hard to get passed. Anyway, we found Durian ice Cream in the market and decided we should try this. Who doesn't like ice cream? How bad could it taste?The smell should be toned down...that would make it easier for my nose.

I have to make this disclaimer, we are not a picky eaters, and we at least try everything once. The Durian fruit has been one of a few things that we haven't been able get passed the smell. I go....
It has the appearance of play doh, the consistency of harden soft serve ice cream  and it smells like something all its own. Better yet it isn't stinky. The taste is smooth, sweet and at the back of my tongue I can taste sour, but I can't think of anything to compare it too. Not too helpful.

Our daughter does not like it, she spit it out. My husband and I finished ours, but I don't think I will eat any more.  The aftertaste is not the best...very sour.When I burped it was smell of a sour stomach.

We tried it! We are one step closer to trying the actual fruit.
If you want to know more about durian- check out Wikipedia- - I am not a big supporter of Wikipedia, but they did a good job on the information.

"Why not go out on a limb? Isn't that where the fruit is?" ~Frank Scully

You know it is going to be good day when you wake to a rainbow over the water. I wish I could have sat on my balcony with a hot cup of coffee and daydream my day away. No time, but I did take photos to share this lovely moment with you all.

I sat on the beach. Nothing amazing, or overwhelming....I just sat there. Kid is in school, husband is at work and I am sitting on the beach. Thats just not fair.
I am looking for a job, but it isn't easy. I thought about going back to teaching Conversational english, but it doesn't seem to be in me to do. I think I am going to go back to school and further my education.

"What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook." ~Henry David Thoreau

How to get to Gateway store

Take the MTR and get off at the Sheung Wan station.
I Seem to always board the MTR at Admiralty station, Sheung Wan is on line 2. Sheung Wan is the last stop on the line. When exit the subway look for the "E" exit. The Exit at "E2" Wing lol st 6-26
Gatewaystore is on your left- Yellow door- it is the back entry of the store. Walk down the stairs and you will see the register.

If you want to go to Wing on take a right instead of a left when you exit "e2". Walk around the corner and look up you will see the sign for Wing on in bold yellow letters on the building. The only thing you will need to do is cross the street and enter the front door.

Here is a photo of Wing on-

Water Lily ponds in San Angelo Texas

San Angelo is a town filled with hidden treasures. No, I am not from San Angelo, so when I go to visit I am always amazed what I find there. The water lilies were one of those amazing sites to find…ok, I didn’t find it…I was told about it and where it was located.

Mississippi and NASA

Lunar Lander Exhibit

Photo taken by Gypsy’s Husband  

NASA's Lunar Lander exhibit is located at the Mississippi I-10 Welcome Center in Hancock County, Miss., just west of Bay St. Louis and 45 miles east of New Orleans on I-10 at Exit 2. The exhibit features a 30-foot-tall replica of a Lunar Lander used as a trainer by the Apollo 13 astronauts. Apollo 13 astronaut and Mississippi native Fred Haise left space-boot prints and signature in concrete at the base of the exhibit.

Welcome to the official visitor center for Stennis Space Center
