My most avid readers must be aware of my soft spot for Hello Kitty. It all began when I moved to Asia. Even now in Europe Hello Kitty is haunting me. Last week I got a Hello Kitty baking mould as a present from a friend - thanks Emilia! Today I used the mould for the first time and made some chocolates filled with fudge. Cute, isn't it?
I love my drinks bubbly. On my recent Berlin visit I tasted Austrian sparkling water called Römerquelle. In addition to its nice texture, it has been nicely branded. The bottles are beautiful, not to mention their glasses. Their branded glasses have Roman soldiers as reliefs on their bottoms. I wonder can I find them in London?
I had my Saturday lunch at Maroush Express, my favorite Lebanese restaurant in London. I ordered sparkling water to drink with my usual houmous and tabouleh. I got a bottle of Borjomi mineral water which turned out to be excellent, just the right amount of bubbles.
After finishing my lunch I started examining the Borjomi bottle etiquette. It has the name Borjomi written with Roman and Georgian alphabet on it. The Georgian alphabet look so beautiful. They have an ancient feel to them although they were discovered only in 405AD, much later than their Roman cousins. It also turned out that Borjomi is a small but famous town in Georgia and renowned for its healing mineral water.
Now I am waiting my next encounter with Borjomi.
