Everyday I make a mistake here. I make some random gesture that is considered rude. I mix up words and say the wrong thing. I buy the wrong thing at the supermarket. It’s tough.

Today my mistake was going to make almond pudding. The directions are in Japanese but that is not where today’s mistake was made.

I figured out I needed 250ml of milk so I just popped out to get some. This is the part that’s my favorite game. Guessing what is what at the store. This box was right next to other boxes on the shelf with cows and milk written on them in English. So it’s milk right?


It’s some sort of clear milky fruit scented liquid. I tried it before I dumped it. It wasn’t very good. I am too tired and humiliated to go back to the store so the pudding will have to wait another day.

    Damn, jenjen where were you in my time of need? Sadly, this is not the first time I have made this mistake. 🙁

    I do have an update though. I made the pudding later that day and froze it and it was an amazing almondy ice cream pudding thing and it was great. I love MUJI.

    I’m glad I read Jenjen’s comment – I was staring at the box trying to figure out what it could be. ‘Mountain-juice’ was my best guess.

    Also, now that I come to think of it, I don’t remember learning the Japanese word for ‘milk’ when I took it at university.
