this past weekend i took a trip to sacramento with my parents, something i haven’t done in a long long time.  typically, it involves getting off at the fruitridge exit and making our way to little asia.  off of stockton you’ll find some of the best noodle shops, boba bars, asian groceries stores, and vietnamese chess players (or whatever the game is).  stangely enough, i found some odd foods, and saw my transportation proffessor there.  heres a look.

TK Noodle House, my favorite.  i got all this for about 5 bucks.  i didn’t eat everything though.

these plants had some pods on them, perhaps to catch falling rain.  i’m not sure what happens from there.  the man tried to scare me away and tell me not to take pictures, but i did sucka.

inside the grocery store, my parents went right for the greens.  i’m not going to lie, my mom makes some damn good bok choy.

if you haven’t figured it out yet, that’s an ox penis.  supposedly, it’s good for sex so says my mom.  *awkward*

hard to believe that by the end of the day, these trays of chicken guts and livers and kidneys and everything nice are cleaned out

at the end of the day, we all just want to go shopping.  so my dad takes us to arden mall and my sister spends the better half of our 2 hour trip there in the kid store called libby lu.  if it’s not that, then its justice.  why do these stores keep popping up?
