Re: If you dare, post pictures you took

From dinner the other night. My wife and I took our language teacher and her husband out to dinner. She wanted to go for Korean food, so we did the Korean restaurant thing here in Shanghai ... the only thing Korean there was the name on the door, and the fact that they served kimchi with the meal .

This is what we had. The stew is every bit as spicy as it looks, but it actually tastes more like Sichuan Mala (hot and numb) than it does like the spicy Korean sauces. The meat in the pot was a combination of a river fish from China (I do not know the name of it) and pork belly. The vegetables actually went together to form a nice spicy flavor, though.

Our teacher found "hundred year eggs" on the menu (which is also very Chinese ... definitely NOT Korean), and so she ordered that to introduce me to it. That is the dark-ish egg slices you can see above and to the right of the stew, and just to the right of the kimchi. The fermentation of these eggs turns the whites into a clear, slightly greenish color, and turns the yolks black. when the spices are added to the slices, it turns out to be quite good.

So this was our latest attempt at "Korean" food in Shanghai ... which turns out to be good, but definitely not like Korean food in Korea, nor like Korean food in the US.



As a last note, I may not be able to post on here much more. I will if I can, but I doubt I'll be able to for much longer. I don't want to make a dramatic exit, or call attention to it, but if I don't make it back here, the return to TAM has been fun, and has definitely been a nice time of English interaction during a time when I didn't have much opportunity to interact with people in English.


There's a big difference between having ten years of experience, and having one year of experience ten times.

^ all the best to you shy_guy. Hope to see your posts from time to time if or when you do revisit. I'll be stepping back again. It's been nice to revisit though.

Will you be visiting Chengdu's New Century Global Center while you're over that way?

Re: If you dare, post pictures you took

At first she was a bit miffed at the charges on the credit card bill from the "French bakery". I was like what? I haven't been to a bakery. Well what is is this charge from "Aubuchon" she asked, it sounds like a French bakery. Now when we need hardware we say we need to go to the French bakery.

Earlier today, getting butane for the creme brulee torch.

I can see that they're there and can get the URL, but I can't see them when I post them here ... and ... never mind. It's a mess to explain. I'll get an easier way figured out ... )
We were in a Walmart in Changsha....hot dogs in a freezer with no wrapping and a tower of chicken feet.

The rest of the store was pretty much like one here in the states.

My hubs loves Chinese beer.

I want to play, if I can get my picture to work. This was on our second trip to S. Africa, one of my closest friends was in the front seat of the Land Rover ahead of us. A protective mother elephant wasn't too happy to have us close to her baby.

Re: If you dare, post pictures you took

Someone asked for a picture of Ireland, I have a few. We just did a city tour of Belfast, but we did go to a garden area outside of Dublin. We got rained out of a couple of Irish ports.

That's funny. I just took a picture of Kinky Liqueur when I was in Las Vegas a few weeks ago.

Great minds think alike

Re: If you dare, post pictures you took

I live about 15 minutes from Sydney's CBD and I was on the harbour last week and I took these photos. Australia is such a beautiful place it should be everyone's next holiday destination.
