OOTN!! Ready for more shopping! :D
Dinner from Sushi-Takeout (NT135)
Yakiniku beef burger (NT65).Trying out the famous MOS Burger. But I ordered the wrong thing. Instead of bun, I was given rice. Gosh! I was shocked when I received my order. I eventually found out that I ordered the "pearl" bun, which means rice. >.< So silly~ But the grilled stripped beef was really nice and a lot. It would be great if it was BUN. Sorry about the blur pic.
TADA~~ More more more~ Hehe..
