went to this shop along hong kong street the other day with the aunty gang during our lunch break. being the aunties that they are,i am not surprised that they know of this shop and went there to buy nuts to chew on during work time. woo!2 thumbs up for them!
this shop amazes me to no end.
all the staff are ah peks and ah mas. haha. very cute. as in seriously. haha.
rows and rows of nuts and dried fruits.
who knew chrysanthemum came in such old school packaging with the rope and all? ha. =D
rows and rows of shark's fins.
rows and rows of dried scallops.
many many mushrooms! SUPER fragrant la! =D
many many huge huge scallops! =D
many many sea cucumbers which, if you ask me, look like dried up penises.
dried up penises looking sea cucumber up close.

dried up penises. haha. if you don't know chinese, this is THE geoduck. you know? the one i wrote about some time back. if you don't, below is a refresher.
yup. this is how a geoduck looks like in real life and not dried up. they can grow up to 2m long and live up to 160 years.they are the 2nd longest living creatures behind giant turtles who can live up to 200 years old. and no, i did not photoshop this picture. i found it off the net like this. haha.
