There are various versions in which I rarely discriminate against as I appreciate them all, as long as heart and [...]

High Antioxidant: Goji Berries

By | January 30th, 2012|Categories: Asia, China|Tags: , |

Goji berries is a dried berry that my grandma fed me growing up as snacks and as an antioxidant ingredient in her Chicken soup. As what I thought was another Chinese Eastern belief, she'd say "Eat it! It's good for your eyes & it'll help you live longer!" So I did, and much enjoyed eating [...]

In Lijiang, we started the day horseback riding with the Naxi ethnic group with the most hilarious guide. He was cracking jokes with us from the start, spitting out random english words he knew, while serenading to us "Ali-san gu-niang" by Teresa Teng. For those that know Mandarin, [...]

Epic Fail:: Food Poisoning in China

By | August 3rd, 2011|Categories: China|

My dad has some friends that live in China. So upon coming here, a lot of them were more than generous to open their time and homes to us. We took a 6 hour fast-train from Shanghai to Xia'pu, which is a small fishing town of 500,000 population, located in the northern province of Fu-Jian. [...]
