Got some wine from Hanna’s peeps. 3 Liter each!!
Wal and Robbin from our class are in Tokyo. They might have gone bigger since they got there or everything could just be smaller in Japan.
Even the salads!! Displayed here is a Caesar salad with chicken from Working Girls Café. Awesome salads I’ll tell you.
Okay, they’re actually really small, called cuties, but the amount of them I got was BIGGER.
Had a burger for lunch today at Burger King. Hanna liked her soda B.I.G. Mine was okay.
This was actually one of the first things I noticed when I got here. Bought a deodorant the first or second day here and it was like fetched from that Alice in Wonderland scene with the key, except with a deodorant this time. And this is not a spray one, it’s a stick. Big stick.
Miller High Life — The Champagne of Beers
Maybe not your typical American thing to buy, but I’ve never seen a lemon grass THIS BIG IN THE WHOLE WORLD. Bought in China Town this morning.
This time: Philadelphia cheese. In Sweden you’ll get approximately 200gr of cheese if you buy a package. Here you get 453gr or 16 OZ. Almost for the same price.
Introducing a new category here on the blog: Everything’s bigger in the U.S. First post: A can of fine fine American beer i.e. Budweiser. Bought by yours sincerely from the supermarket just down stairs, half an hour ago. It says 24 FL. OZ on the can, and with my nifty little dashboard widget, I recalculated it into readable measures (Liter) and it counted up to 0,70976471 L which is 0,20976471 L more than in a beer can you’ll find anywhere else or at least Europe. Awesome! Also learnt what FL. OZ. means: Fluid Ounce. Not sure where the Z comes from though.
