By the way

An add-on to my previous post:

Chinese food in America, or at least in Amherst/Buffalo, is making itself known to me. I have found instant chop suey in the supermarkets (I didn't know it was just vegetables! I thought it was a flat noodle dish), have eaten a fortune cookie (which taught me a Chinese word too!), have found out what General Tso's chicken is (who is General Tso?), and have tasted lo mein, which would have been nice if it wasn't so oily and I believe back home we call it "chao mian".

I have yet to sample Kung Pow Chicken, though. But I have seen the peach lotus buns in bamboo baskets (they have leaves on them!).

There is a lot of broccoli everywhere.

The only real complaint I have so far is that the mapo tofu I had in "Young Chow" restaurant in my campus tasted more like mei-you-flavouring-de-tofu.

...Yeah. All the Chinese food was served by Chinese people from China, which makes me wonder to be honest whether they eat what they serve. Or maybe it makes sense that the Chinese food is so oily because food in China tends to be overly oily too.

That's all. Just felt that I had to dedicate a post to this particular eating adventure.

Maybe I should open a Chinese restaurant. :D


HEECHUL RAPED HYUKJAE'S FACE.

THIS IS THE ONLY THING IN LIFE I CARE ABOUT RIGHT NOW.
