Where's the Polisher Part 2
After work I went to Ito Yokado, a Japanese department store near my home.
It's great for staples, especially homeware and basic clothing. By the way I got my humidifier there. Originally I was set on buying one that was 100 RMB (US$13.52). But then a woman selling a different brand of humidifiers managed to persuade me to buy a more expensive one. What sold me was that it had a water filter in it. Originally it was 238 RMB, but she sold it to me for 206 RMB.
She said the filter was good for two years. And then what? I asked. Can I buy another filter here? No, she replied. Oh. Maybe by then I'm supposed to want another humidifier.
Then I headed to the basement where the supermarket is. And there was a stack of these biscuits on sale.
It literally says putao jia ceng bing or literally "grape press on both sides layer cake".
But as you can see from the picture, it's not grape, but raisins. I guess there's no word for dried grapes.
I didn't buy a pack, but they probably taste good.
