Yesterday, we went shopping at Xotus/Oriental Market to stock up for Sunday's family day. We ended up going home with three kinds of rice (sushi, Indonesian-style short grain and basmati) and some random bits and bobs, nothing very exciting. We'll have to go back for frozen/fresh goods nearer the end of the week.

The most interesting thing is the place itself though. This Chinese-run oriental supermarket has isles upon isles of familiar and obscure products from all over Asia (Japan, Korea, Indonesia etc.) With all the colourful packaging on every isle and the staff being more fluent in Mandarin than in any other language, it looks like a trading station from the Firefly 'verse. So if you're looking for Chinese spam, nondescript dried goods, unnaturally brightly coloured mochi, 'protein rations' or nebulous jelly concoctions, I'm pretty sure you can find it here :-)
