Cavalock and The Tokyo Haagen-Dazs Rendezvous

What are we as a race or even species without traditions? Traditions are important to me, l look forward to them. Like whenever I'm back in Tokyo, getting my glasses cleaned at the same spot year after year is a treasured tradition, as important as me getting my early morning ass-rim from my hotel bidet. But this has got to be my favorite Tokyo tradition, trying out all the new special Japanese Haagen-Dazs flavours. We saw what was available four months ago, now in the middle of a heatwave I can't think of a better time to see what's in the fridge now.

I have always loved Snoopy and the Peanuts gang since I was little kid so when I saw this huge banner in Ginza, I knew where I was headed that morning. Man, I thought I had a thing for Snoopy but definitely not as much as the mob at the Snoopy fair. Imagine the Chinese New Year Eve crowd at Chinatown, then multiply that by a gazillion in a mall, that's how crazy packed it was.

Here are all my Peanuts loot this trip. A folder, iron-ons (from Uniqlo) and a bag huge enough for transporting all them huge boardgames around. :)
