And the smooth insides

And the smooth insides

Black sesame anpan

Black sesame anpan

On Thursday I only had classes in the afternoon, so I could eat at home. I wanted to extend my egg pörkölt for another day, so I needed to get more eggs. I went to the Fresco at Shuugakuin again, and got white eggs which I’m absolutely not used to, as all eggs are kinda… well… light brownish/beige colored in Hungary. I was even more surprised to find that the shell is even more white that the insides XD; Anyway, since I was already there, I went to the bakery for an anpan, this time for the one with black sesame on top. And finally I realized the difference: the one with the white sesame seems to have more rougher parts of the bean as well, while the paste in the other is very smooth. I think I like the rougher more, because it’s just more exciting :D

The washing machine

After that I went to wash my clothes. Fortunately there are two washing machines in the building we can use for free, so yay~ The problem was, that despite checking the machine once, I didn’t translate all the words there, so in the end I wasn’t sure what I was doing, and could only hope I took the right program. I wasn’t really sure about the washing powder/softener thing either, and I just used the washing liquid I got the day before at a drug store at the Kyoto Station (I even asked one of the clerks, because I couldn’t figure out which is the washing stuff XD;). After the program was over it turned out I wasn’t doing it right, because the machine ate one of my shirts – it’s completely useless now >< From the feel I also deduced that there needs to be softener somewhere in the drug store, and I need them next time. I hung the clothes up in my very small and otherwise unusable balcony, but the "rope" there seemed kinda loose, so I was a bit worried when I left everything here.

Look at these pretty swallows!

The uni was nothing special. After the classes I stopped by the drug store to stock up on Vitamin C, softener, and I also got panty liners as well. Sorry, if anyone thinks it’s intimate topic, but I think it’s part of daily life and another interesting thing here. So, I was surfing the net beforehand to see what they have here in Japan, but even with that it wasn’t easy to pick one. Well, if it doesn’t work out I can try something else next time. Anyway, the interesting thing was, that at the counter the panty liners were put in a bag separately, and then once more with the other stuff. I think I have heard about this before, that such “intimate” articles will be hidden, so others can’t see what you buy, but experiencing it first hand was kinda strange – not to mention the bag of that store is completely brown anyway… Oh well, just another tidbit I guess ^^;

There were still some things I needed so I decided to check out another 100 yen store I found before, when I was walking from home to KyoDai. While I was walking there, I noticed the Gakusei Recycle second had shop our guide papers mentioned but without address. I was in a dire need of a rice cooker, so I checked out what they had. They had small rice cookers, and while I still wanted to check out other stores, I was quite keen on buying the rice cooker there. Later at the other 100 yen shop I found what I was looking for: a sponge for showering~ I was already a few train stops away, but I decided to go back to Demachiyanagi, check out the eagles and maybe the shopping arcade on the other side of the river. I saw some new roads and landscapes, and even found another (well, probably not so) hidden shrine on the way. I did some shoppings at the 100 yen shop at the other side too, and after the long walk I finally got home…

Turned out to be quite grassy for me, but interesting

…only to find most of my freshly washed clothes on the ground >< That rope just couldn't hold the weight :/ Most of them weren't even dry yet, so I decided to hang them up on the gas pipe that's running along the ceiling in the kitchen and the bathroom – I didn't want to have any more humidity in the room itself. I was very disappointed with my first washing, but yeah, part of it was my own fault for not checking the machine beforehand and not securing the rope. Well, I translated the courses of the machine in the evening and I had a softener, so I knew it could only be better ^^
