fifth of may
... is Children's Day in Japan, but we don't have a child in the house at this moment, o well
So grab the glasses
And the liquids
Mix them up
And shake them up
Give it a good pour
Margarita, made with freshly squeezed lemon and lime juices; very smooth and refreshing, almost too easy to drink. Oops.
No margarita may be complete with some good Mexican food (or is it the other way around?)
Salsa, guacamole, and chili, all generously home-made, were served with some cheese, sour cream, jalapeno, coriander leaves, and lettuce to top some tortillas.
With corn chips with cheese alongside, the dinner went absolutely perfect.
Now, it was a total coincidence that we had some Mexican fare on El Cinco de Mayo, or the Fifth of May, a Mexico's national holiday; neither my friend who happend to decide on today's menu or her Aussie husband knew about the day, and I myself didn't know about it until I went to live in Hawaii a few years back. At the end of the day, it was a welcome coincidence - I mean, who decline an extra excuse to have good mexican food? I don't.
Anyhow, I have once again set my foot in Melbourne, generously greeted by my good friends and blessed with the infamous Melbourne gloomy autumn-winter weather.
And their cats, who seem to recognize me after theree weeks. Not a bad thing.
Okay, the weather may suck, but the place nevertheless offers plenty things for us to do. Especially when I am running out of my time...
