Surprising and nice encounter with Tibetan food (II)

When my ‘stir-fried’ beef was served, I could not believe it was only for me — it was a big portion – a full big plate!! I don’t think I have ever seen this generous portion in any Chinese restaurants in China or abroad, other than in northern China. So I thought it was just [...]

Surprising and nice encounter with Tibetan food (I)

This is a totally lovely surprise!! In the evening, a few of us decided to go to the city centre of Bonn (Germany), and find a restaurant there for dinner. None of us really knew Bonn that well, we wanted to wander around, see what we could find. When we aimlessly got off the tram, [...]

My food stories: Lost in translation in Germany

O, I totally got lost in translation in Germany, lots of funny stories happened, I have got to share with you. :)) This was my first time really visiting Germany, I mean, apart from a few times ‘passing by’ at the airports.

Stories of food: Having Chinese food in Paris

Stories of food: Having Chinese food in Paris

  I love Paris. I always think that there are cities that one can visit in just a few days. But Paris is different for me; to understand Paris, one needs to live there for some time. Just hopping on and off the metro, walking in between the shops, getting lost in the streets… Probably [...]

Chinese culture Chinese children day on 1st June

Children’s day in China

Happy Children’s day everyone! We all have a playful ‘Child’ inside at heart, no? Just forget about all the headaches in grown-up’s world, at least for a few minutes, and go back to the time we used to play childhood games in the yard with little friends —  we are happy, carefree. Sometimes, for a [...]
