Trip to CostCo

With the house still having lots of bugs visit from the fields across the way and with some water still leaking from plumbing of the unit next door, after only a few hours of unpacking yesterday I decided to make a run for CostCo down in Kaohsiung. Though a two hour ride, at least I could begin enjoying a few Western food imports in the midst of the mess here. Unfortunately, I went a little overboard.

Having to pay personal mileage and tolls on the mission vehicle, I knew this would probably be the only trip I'd be making for the rest of the year. So I really stocked up on both house furnishings and food, spending WAY more than I thought I'd spend. I bought two shopping baskets crammed full of stuff-- all but one item for me!

At the cash register, 4 girls kept poking their heads into my basket to see all the things the foreigner was buying. Much like my neighbor last week when I was moving in, they wouldn't leave it alone. Thankfully, when I got back to the house, I was able to get it all out of the car and into my kitchen unobserved. :-)

I'm sure the bugs are glad to have the new food.
