fish & chips

a kiwi favorite; fish & chips on the beach.
so should have taken the gladwrap off that lemon before clicking the shutter!

we can't come all the way down here to new zealand without having fish & chips on the beach.

to tell the truth i'm not; or should i say wasn't a big fish & chip eater as the heavy batter used on the fish and the oily chips didn't do much for me.
well times have changed.
the tarakihi fish we ordered was beautiful and fresh and the batter was as light as japanese tempura. tried out their bread-crummed fish too; just as divine.
the seagulls wanted to get in on our meal and i don't blame them.

it was kou-chan's first time ever to feel the sand under his feet (and in his hands, eyes, mouth...) and he loved it!! much better than his "first feel of grass" experience...
he loved the small waves washing up over his little toes and basically couldn't get enough of it.
must be the kiwi blood in him.

He's so cute, maybe he will grow up to eat fish and chips too! I ate it when I was in England (full British experience)

Kou-chan and the sea-gulls: Can't decide which is cuter...

Waitaminute, what am I saying? Of course it's Kou-chan. Make that Kou-chan and his first sea-gulls! :)

P.S. Tempura light batter for fish and chips - yums!

maybe next year i can give him his first try of good old fish & chips.
at this stage he is sticking to mashed-up kumara and fruits.
