Kitty Says Tsukuru Tazaki

New Murakami alert!

I’m currently rushing through 1Q84 book two so I can read book three and swiftly move onto the new book ‘Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage.’ It’s released in English this week and Waterstones on Deansgate, Manchester are opening an hour early on Tuesday for his biggest fans. Head down for the 8am opening to grab yourself limited edition stickers and to be in with a chance of winning a signed copy o the book.

*excited*

Kitty Says C-Town

I love having a walk around Chinatown in Manchester. It always smells amazing and there are plenty of supermarkets, restaurants, craft shops and bakeries.

I can’t walk through without visiting either Wing Fat or Hang Won supermarket. Usually I pick up Tao Kae Noi crispy seaweed which comes in different flavours including pizza (yeah pizza flavoured seaweed) and 3000 boxes of Pocky and a butt load of sweets. There are some weird and wonderful stuff stocked there, try to avoid the fish head aisle unless you’e into dead things staring back at you. On my latest trip I came across tomato flavoured Pretz, which are super delicious and morish. It’s made by the same company that make Pocky, so like the savoury version. I am now a huge fan and will be going back for more.

If you like Sanrio/San-X/Ghibli, arts and crafts and traditional Chinese goods then visit T La Arts & Craft shop on Nicholas Street. I have been going there since I can remember and have always wanted the maneki-neko below, it’s only £238 – Birthday gift please.

Kitty Says Deliciously Squidgy

flapjack

Soreen, it’s pronounced SOR-een

I like Soreen cut in slices topped with lots of butter, but did you know you can have Soreen in lots of different ways? There are some great recipes on their website and the Chocolate Soreen Flapjack is one of the best.

Using the Soreen Original malt loaf, butter, caster sugar, porridge oats, golden syrup and dark chocolate you can make your own. Just watch the video below and follow this link for the full recipe *warning, mouth watering*

Kitty Says When in Reims

To cut a long story short, champagne & food.

I was lucky enough to visit Reims and sample everything G.H Mumm. Fine dining, tours of the Mumm cellars, extravagant French hosts, drivers and glass after glass of champagne. The city has a beautiful cathedral with a brilliant light show, great bars and super French restaurants. The city is just an hour outside of Paris, so if you have the chance to go it’s a must! I volunteered to try sabering a bottle of champagne and now I will never open a bottle of champagne normally again.

We also managed to squeeze two nights of karaoke into our trip, when in Reims eh
