Japanese rice is sticky
As a shorter interlude between all the heavy posts dealing with weddings, work, Japanese culture and all that stuff that is so challenging to comprehend, I thought I should break things up with a lighter post for a change.
My little niece has been eating regular food now for a few months, but has very strong likes and dislikes, where most things she hasn't eaten before ends up in the "dislikes" considering the short time she has been eating food. However, she really likes rice and during her visit her earlier she consequently was fed a lot of rice since it's something she likes and is readily available. However, Japanese rice is sticky, something that can give a little kid quite a challenge if they're not used to it and have not yet mastered the noble art of eating with a spoon. Just thought this picture is kinda cute as she ponders how to deal with the sticky rice, note that this is pretty early in the meal and more food has ended up attached to her than in her stomach, therefore the serious look...
