Is very difficult sometimes when there is literally no one else who refrains from eating meat. Now, I do eat fish sometimes, when I really need it, but I wish I didn’t have to. Still, eating fish doesn’t exactly make going out with friends any easier. There is this chain resturant here, Coco’s Curry House.
And I’ve had it once, before I realized that when they advertised “Veggie or seafood curry!”, they only meant the topping. The actual curry it’self is made either of beef (moo) or pork (oink) or a mix (hgguhh?) So the last time everyone wanted to go there, I just had a side salad and like 4 breaded mini shrimp. I do like curry, however, and I recently added a Vegan and Vegetarians page on Facebook that someone on my island made. The creator, a vegan I think, and really buff too, made a post about Laxmi Curry House, an Indian family run little restaurant, and they make their curry out of tomatoes and onions!
I managed to get Patrick and Chillypeppers to go with me, yesterday. Although, the whole time driving there, Patrick and I were arguing about the directions and what not, but we got there in time to have a great dinner. The guys were pretty skeptical at first, seeing as it was a super tiny little place, it was probably a house in the past, and had only 4 parking spots in front. This is, however, typical of Okinawa. We stepped in, and the only other people in there were customers who were just paying and leaving. After we sat down, a young Indian woman came over and said ” My, ah, English is not good, soo” and laughed a bit, and brought us some English menus. I ended up getting (and I was so happy they had it!) peach lassi to drink, it’s a sweet yogurt type drink, with peaches! But for food, we got a dinner set, was white curry (made from yogurt) with spinich and cheese. I picked rice to mix with it, and a Japanese salad:
You can see that I had eaten most of it before I took a pic, lol. I really loved it, and, it was so filling! I couldn’t even finish it all! We got dessert too, Chilly and I got chocolate cake, and of course, Patrick got cheesecake. He LOVES cheesecake. Afterwards, since we were all still feeling a little heavy and spice-y from the curry, we stopped at Starbucks. Mmmm, so good. Since Chillypeppers was feeling tired, and still recovering from a little bout of pneumonia(!), he went home right afterwards, and Patrick and I spent some time talking to our dorm friends, who had spent the day painting the day room/movie room a bloody red, and also spraying everything around the room a bloody red. He and I spent a bit more time together, watching LOST, and trying not to fall asleep.
I eventually went to bed early, since I had scheduled a haircut early the next morning. Yes! I cut my hair again! It scared me, just a little, since it was the 5th time I’ve ever cut my hair in my 19 years! My hair had grown out since the big cut a few months ago, and I was kind of ‘out of uniform’ when my ponytail touched my collor of my shirt. I decided to get a razor layered cut, with a base of three or so inches cut off. I was so scared! Haha, I had gotten layers, a little bit, when I got the big cut, but it was mostly an A-line style. Here’s a kind of bad pic from this morning, right before I went back to sleep:
Ah, and I have a dentist apt tomorrow morning! Ugh. I’m also going to schedule getting my wisdom teeth to be taken out too, even though I really don’t want to. Patrick wants to be my person for that, the one to take me to and from the clinic, and check up on me throughout the… three days, I think it is. Mostly because he wants to see me all doped up and goofy. Ah, what a good friend he is, lol
On a side note, for my birthday, I’ll be 20 and legal to drink here, Patrick wants my first drink to be a shot with a little flame lit on it. Like a birthday candle you see. Hehe… ugh, I am not looking forward to the morning after that, lol. I won’t be stupid and drink too much, but since I haven’t been able to build up any tolerance for alcohol, I’m not going to have an awesome next day. But I will have friends who will take care of me. No drinking and driving, they’ve even found a bar “within stumbling distance” of the gate, so we can easily make it back to base before curfew.
Ah, brighter days ahead, lol
Good night Sanrio Town
