Marble in Soft Drink

image

This is a soft drink that I often see in North Taiwan. Its look and taste appeals the young though it’s hard to open it without adult assistance. The pink contraption on the lid is what you’ll use to open the bottle by pushing down an embedded marble to make a hole.┬áSo it’s like this, while guzzling , you’re fully aware that there’s a marble moving around the liquid inside.

Gastropod Shell Pot

Snail meat is for snacking while its shell is for potting

Grilled snails are for snacking in Jiufen town. One house I happen to pass by has this idea of repurposing the gastropod shell as plant pot. Cute.
