Project 365: Day 13 Codness me

Went into office again today for Casino's full year results which is actually quite an optimistic one. Definitely the numbers were at the top end of consensus and share price today was kinda flat compared to another day of fall in benchmark indices.

Anyway the highlight of the day was when I was strolling through whiteleys on my way back from the bank. I came face to face with a "I don't know" what. Took a question to the fishmonger to learn that the huge fish was a cod. I mean how many of you out there have actually seen a whole cod? I've seen cod fillets, cod steaks, heck even cod liver oil but couldn't recognise it whole.

Now I know cod this size should be normal. Black cods which we chinese adore so much back home is huge, judging by the size of the steam cod steaks we have back home. But if you're used to fish n chips here, you would be surprised to see an atlantic (or black sea) cod the size of this too.

They even dug a flatfish out of the cod's mouth believe it or not. Poor flounder........
