Ice Cream #Coffee

22 Apr

Iced Coffee #China style!  Here in Henan, most restaurants don’t have ice.  The Chinese don’t really like iced drinks – believing the cold unboiled water will make them sick and is a bad combination with your inside organs. (Probably true of the water here.) 

But Ice Cream is a different story.  Still bad for your health but not so likely to kill you.  So if you Order iced coffee or an iced soda You’ll get Ice cream coffee or a ice cream float 😄

#Foreign Food Fun!

Ooh. . . . Seaweed Chips!  😂 The perfect junk food.  They have the weirdest Types of chips here – no BBQ or Chedder Sour Cream.  Nope, It’s Seaweed, Green Tea, Squid, Roasted Lamb, Hot Pot, and Yoghurt

Lovely Purple #Flowers!

Going a Little #Nuts Today!

Hmmmmmm.  I ❤this brand of nuts from #China. They are probably the best almonds, pistachios, etc. I’ve ever had.  

But ‘CRAB ROE’ and ‘BROAD BEANS-beef’ flavored?. . . . I’m gonna have to think about that for a minutes

The #Chinese concept of #icecream and my idea of a delicious treat are not the same 😂 This was a Chinese popsicle my student likes – green tea with a red bean filling.  Somehow not quite the same as good old fashioned Chocolate 😜

A #Chinese #Dollhouse 😂

14 Feb

​I’ve been sick today so I was playing on Taobao and found these adorable/hilarious dollhouse items. If You’ve ever lived in China you’d know how accurate these images are 😂 Down to the cheap Chinese prngle alternatives (they look exactly like that!), cooke tins, and Green tea Oreo knockoffs 😄. I’ve been Coke Zero free for more than a month, but those bottles are so funny.  And the fanta soda.  😂
