Ahh, do you know Gili - I just tried this for the first time last month. And
for the second time last week...and for the next time possibly this week :)
You are so right - it's amazing!  I liked a sort of pistachio/rosewater
cookie that was sort of like a pierogie with powdered sugar on it.

I tried some Chinese desserts recently thanks to a friend from Hong Kong.
Mango mochi balls and these rice paste balls filled with sesame paste which
one boils. Really good - looked a bit like eyeballs though  ;)

Sorry Marie.  The list has been very quiet and then down (right?) recently.
Suddenly it's like a big party.  We really do talk about dwj all the time.
Really! I missed the list conversation generally though and I *do* like
hearing perspectives on all things great and small partly because everyone
is a dwj fan.  So we know we have that really large thing in common.

So Marie - what's your favorite dwj? Which parts have made you laugh out
loud?  Have you ever cried?

You know, I think my most absolutely intense dwj moment was in Power of
Three when they are all down in the dorig hall volunteering to die. I mean,
I've cried and felt desperate at things at other times - like Hildy and Ynen
being hunted by their family - but mmm!  I think I'll have to go read it
again tonight.  While I eat a piece of knafe. Although I think they spelled
it...khapera or khafera at the cafe. Whatever, I know it *must* be what you
describe Gili.

Because some goddess on the list sent me a copy!!

Endless gratitude,
