“When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down ‘happy’. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life.”
― John Lennon

Hooray for Lychee Season!
Spent the day on my home turf of Chinatown. Funny to say I live here, but I never walk around the area. The outfit I wore was breathable, but it was still incredibly hot. I should have worn sunscreen, but I hate the smell. I should fine one with a bearable scent...or none at all, if it exists. I've been wondering whether I have skin cancer because I've been getting weird spots on my arms, but it may be my hypochondriacal (I still don't know if this is a word) tendencies again. Does anyone know anything about skin cancer?

Pig feet...sounds appetizing...

Anyway, I especially went to the marketplace because it's lychee season and I'm tired of eating the lychee jellies from Don Quijote. I want real fruit so I bought some and it's safe to say they were extremely meaty and delicious; much better than the substitute. I may have to grab a whole bag next time. Tim and I had pizza from Rosarina's on Maunakea afterwards. Interestingly enough, throughout my childhood I have always passed here, but never stopped in. Glad we did today because their food has tons of cheese, and everyone knows I love my cheese.
Have a great rest of the weekend! More photos after the jump!
