Happy overstimulated tastebuds

In the last couple of weeks there's been shuffling going on of the shops in the strip mall across the street ... the really expensive Inuit art store has left (lovely stuff, but seriously, this was a poorly chosen location ... who stops on the way home from work for bread, toilet paper, takeout food, and a 500 pound soapstone carving?). The used book store has moved into the larger quarters left vacant by the art place. And the Filipino bakery/convenience store has moved into the book store's space, which means that ***gasp!*** it's now larger than a double bus shelter and physically possible to actually move around and leisurely look at the stock to learn what's in there (besides the all-essential rice cakes, samosas and pichi-pichi). And so yesterday on my way back from yarn shopping, seeing that they were all set up and open, I dropped in, got some rice cakes ***YUM!***, and, while browsing around the new shelving, discovered item #1 on this page: Boy Bawang Garlick Flavor Cornick (crunchy fried corn with seasonings). Man, when they say "garlic flavor" they ain't kidding ... there's more garlic in this than there is in garlic! And some chili powder, but at levels low enough that my Celtic metabolism can cope with it. Delicious! (there's the occasional piece of fried cornsilk too, but, having husked corn and knowing how impossible it is to remove every bit of that, I'll forgive 'em). Nice thing is that a little bit of this snack goes a very long way towards soothing any junk food urges ... this bag is gonna last a LONG time. :-)
