Hangover of the month

Hangover of the month

Stocked up on cheap booze. Got this big bottle of Jinjio for £3. Also some beer. Drank it and passed out. Woke up with hangover.

Nanjing Dai pai dang Restuarant

Nanjing Dai pai dang Restuarant

Situated at the top of the Deji Plaza, the Nanjing Dapaidang Restaurant serves food of the locality. It’s said that the restaurant offers street market food in the style of a restaurant. Some people have a thing about street food, i.e., they won’t eat it. In China, if you don’t eat street food, you’re never going to taste any of the local delicacies. Luckily, Nanjing has the Dapaidang. You’re given a ticket at the door, as the queue is quite…

Teacher Juicy drinks chicken foot

Teacher Juicy drinks chicken foot

Here is a picture of my Chinese co-teachers tasty brew. Some might call it a ‘foul infusion’. The chinese are quite keen with the feet, heads, beaks and bones. Less  so with the brains, guts and balls. I think they’d rather suck than chew. Maybe, walking around with a chicken foot hanging from the mouth gives the impression of opulence. I’ll ask Juicy… 🙂 Posted from Samsung Galaxy S7566 – WordPress for Android No visits yetRelated Posts Hangover of the…

Evil patronage is the only patronage

Evil patronage is the only patronage

So. Patients, sorry pupils from Wistron took me out for a meal on Thursday after finishing their course the week before at the Parkson hotel – Kunshan. Nice group of people. I’m pretty sure Wistron is the best factory around, and they’re pretty lucky to have a job there. All good people… Sounding familiar? Nope. Yeah. Doesn’t matter? Lost soul Anyhow.

Favorite drink in China

Favorite drink in China

It’s called ‘jinjiu’ and it tastes like cough medicine. Wouldn’t want to get too drunk on it. It’s fairly potent on the way down not like I’d want it to return in the other direction. That would be uncomfortable. It’s not available anywhere else and is an infusion of Chinese herbs and alcohol.

Strange fruit China – pt2

Strange fruit China – pt2

So… New season, new fruit. I have this one which looks similar to a shower head. Got one off the woman for 4kwai (she wanted 6, I gave her 4). Squeezed a little pea out of it after lunch. The weather is hot here. Around 36°, although in Sichuan, where I used to work, it is rainy. In fact some of the houses have been washed away in the very town I used to work! **Update: I tried some of…

Dragon Boat festival

Dragon Boat festival

So, this weekend is Dragon Boat Festival. Celebration The festival is a celebration of the advent of ‘summer’ (we’ve already begun celebrating here with torrential rain). Out come the Dragon boats, wine and dumplings. It’s a three day festival. Maybe there’ll be some rowdy Chinese puking and throwing dumplings everywhere, (just like it was England), or, maybe there won’t. We’ll see. Ok I’ve found out some more about the festival. It falls on the 5th Lunar day of the calendar….
