Rain stopped so I went out and found a convenience store (konbini) next to my subway station (Monzen-nakacho), which is awesome. The store is big and well-stocked (especially with fish and seafood) so I managed to find a dairy section with lots of western-looking products. And this is probably where I should point out that I was looking for milk because that’s how I like my coffee: with milk. So I found almond milk (so expensive!) and soy milk (I’m not a fan) standing next to something much cheaper and non-fat-milk-looking:
Bought it together with a bunch of other “normal” products (water, cheese, bread, pancakes) and went home to my coffee (I brought it with me from Poland). Fortunately, I opened the alleged “milk” first. Yeah, that’s not milk. That’s sweet yogurt. It’s quite tasty but there will be no coffee today. And tomorrow I’ll probably just buy a can of hot coffee from a vending machine downstairs (I love vending machines!) because I want to walk around my neighborhood and visit some of my favorite places that are conveniently nearby.
And that’s what google translate tells me about my not-milk:
- to improve the intestinal environment, established a tone of intestines
- drink yogurt
- zero fat
- it is round, bacteria also lively
Key words: drink yogurt (not milk)
