The Tamaki Haiga rice is really interesting. It looks like I'm eating frog's eggs, as there's this translucent bubble at the end of each grain. Beautiful when cooked, it still tastes like 'normal' white rice.
Jet's eating a cherry chip ice cream cone (pink!) while watching My Neighbor Totoro in the original Japanese. The language difference doesn't seem to bother him at all. He's even echoing Mai's learning of Japanese, sometimes repeating the words that she repeats. I'll admit that I love the pace of the movie for Jet, as it's real-life paced, not frantic with images or action or shouting at him for attention. He's really calm and interested while watching it. That's cool.
