When your fruit is too pokey to handle . . . ๐Ÿ˜‚ The spines are really hard and pointy.

Dragon Boat #Zongzi! #Foodie Fun!

18 Jun

I have awesome #students!! Yesterday was the #Chinese national #DragonBoat #Festival where college close down and Everyone eats yummy Food at home. We were forced to have #class instead so some of my darlings brought me #zongzi – bamboo or banana leaf wrapped glutinous #rice triangles. It’sva very popular Traditional dish here in #China. Wasn’t that sweet of them?!?

**They are calling them ‘Social Surplus’ zongzi because we are studying the Surplus triangle in class Lol ๐Ÿ˜›

#Foodie ‘N Me. . . say NO!

10 Mar

When you run into #desserts that you’re just not sure about. . . . ๐Ÿค” ๐Ÿ˜› And then you actually try and are like, ‘Just say no to dessert!’

I’m just saying, I never meet a dessert I won’t eat and I left BOTH of these on the table. Still not sure about the second, but the first was #greentea jello with red beans and lychee fruit. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Would y’all try it?!?

Ordering Take-Out via #Alipay

13 Jan

Using #Alipay to order #TakeOut Food in #China ๐Ÿ˜Š ๐Ÿด

IMAGE 1 – Placing your order

1. Open Aliplay

2. Choose the ‘e’ that says ‘Take-Out’

3. On the next page you’ll see a longlist of restaurants offering services. #pizzahut  is in my picture.  But you Also have #KFC #mcdonalds #burgerking #Chinesefood and more! (YES, MCDONALD’S DELIVERS IN CHINA!). 

4. Pick the place you want. 

5. The next page will have a list of #food offered with pictures (THREE CHEERS FOR PICTURES!!!)๐Ÿ˜œ

6. Click the + symbol next to what you want. It goes into your cart.

7. When You’re done, Click the green button on the bottom of the screen.

IMAGE 2 – Paying & Address

8. The next screen is important. 

  At the top you’ll see a box with the location symbol (marked 1 on the second picture I posted). CLICK this box. 

9. For the first time, ask a #Chinese speaker to add the address (and other popular addresses) for you. It will save it in a list.  In the future just pick the address you want it delivered to from the list.

10. Check the estimated delivery time right below the location button (Mine says 18:22 because #China uses 2400 time.)

11. If You’re Happy Click the Green button on the bottom and pay. 

IMAGE 3 – Tracking Delivery

12. Go back to the home screen of Alipay – Choose ‘e’ for take-out again

13. You’re back to the List of restaurants. On the bottom toolbar, You’ll see a Square (2nd button) that I circled in pink. Click it.

14. Now you’re on a List of orders You’ve made. Choose the Chinese words next to the order. 

15.  Tada! Now you have the estimated delivery time and a gps map showing you where the driver is.

DELIVERY.

16. They usually call you when they arrive at your door.  I Can’t speak Chinese well ๐Ÿ˜ญ so I text them ‘ไฝ ๅฅฝ.ๆˆ‘ๆฅไบ†’ which means basically ‘Hi, I’m on my way’. Can’t promise It’s accurate Chinese, but they always understand it. ๐Ÿ˜Š

You DON’T have to pay the driver, delivery fees were in the original cost ๐Ÿ˜Š

It’s several steps and tricky to figure out, but I was starving a while back and learned on my own of necessity ๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿด

Hope it helps someone else!! โค๏ธ
