I'm so jealous. I crave for that good sidewalk food and hole-in-the-wall stuff.

(hee) ok, one more hijack  Wink

yum!

where have you been?

Well, last spring vacation, my family and I went to go see Japan, Beijing, and Hong Kong. My parents born in Hong Kong, so that's the food I'm used to, even though I was born in America. And my aunt makes THE BEST Chinese food.

So in Hong Kong its the best. Sidewalk food: yummy squid and octopus and those fish balls in sauce. And hole-in-the-wall restaurants, there was yummy Chinese porridge with those crunchy things (don't know what to call it in English), of course the noodles were great, and there's this restaurant, it's the best! It serves basic food, like a ham and egg sandwich, but its so darn fresh! And the hot milk custard!

Obviously, I love the food there! Cheesy

In Beijing, the food was disgusting. One meal (we were on a tour), everything was tofu. Everything. Lips sealed Stinky tofu!!!

I've only been to china once but that was several years ago, and I wasnt' a full-on vegetarian then, so yeah, I know exactly what ya'll mean about the food. I've never had food poisoning in my life (so far!) and I figure that if I can see folks prepare the food in front of me, it's better in the end for my budget and I'm less likely to get sick..

But damn, I really miss those delicious fried dough-sticks with condensed milk.

And the ice cream, but I can get that stuff here. Korea, however, is dominated by not-so-tasty things I can't eat anyway like fried chicken and fish-on-a-stick-in-the-shape-of-a-spiral. Weird....

i am a pescatarian, so it makes life rather difficult at times Wink

i have to specify that when i say i dont want meat, i mean i dont want any.  not even a little, "for flavour."  haha i see the spiral meat-on-a-stick all over the place here. 

where in china did you visit?  where in korea are you?   im in xi'an.

Hi! Malaysian here! (it's between Singapore and Thailand btw).
and no, we do NOT live in trees.

About Koreans: ohmegosh but must they all be so cute? Every Korean I've met is just so drool material.

Hey electronicfly!

I know where malaysia is.. and koreans as cuties, well yeah, except for when the grandmothers shove you and push you around because they 1-want to get to the subway first or 2-want to get to the last loaf of french bread or 3-want to do something that you, the foreigner with blue eyes, is attempting to do. (sigh.)

I like it here, but today was trying. I do think the people here are legitimately nice and (usually) helpful. I just started to get into Korean cinema as well. I have to admit I think Japan has cooler little knick-knacks and things though!

mimikachu: i love yunnan!! did you see more than just kunming? xi'an is one of my favourite places here, but i think that's partly because it's home Wink  i've gotten to visit a number of places, though no other country in asia...  at least not yet. 

im headed stateside in late july but plan on coming back to xi'an next winter. 

and next time im bringing my modpodge and freezer paper...

maybe we should do an asia-swap? im curious what kind of goodies one can find in malaysia and s. korea  Grin

yeah!
Asia swap would be awesome. I bet a lot of folks in theusa or wherever else would want to be involved too-- Asian themed or asia swap.

I hate to be a drag though but I"m not sure if I am yet eligible for such an endeavor, but if I am, I don't mind trying to help organize such a thing..
