Hurrah! I just added flickr to my blog, and this is my first photo entry. Over the weekend, we went to the new Asian mall/grocery store Fubonn. We immediately noticed these two strange beverages - artichoke and pennywort?! There were other weird ones too, but these topped the list.

When I got home, I had to Google it to find out why anyone would want to drink these. Apparently, artichokes are good for your liver, and pennywort (aka gotu kola) helps with arthritis, brain function, and skin diseases. Yeah... I'm Asian and I still think this is weird.
