Although as a proper Chinee girl picture #4 would have happened anyway, the wine was generously and voluntarily provided to us by the fine folks at Carvill Sotheby's International Realty (my new home).

@Melissa808 @jlieu I agree with Melissa you don't need to be on a diet, so please join me for a meal there sometime and come paddling to work it off!

I like the description calamari "legs."  I've also heard octopus "tails."  Both sound more edible than "tentacles."

You are not disorganized, you are Chinee.  I'm not sure how @jlieu came to be OCD, it must the effects of her un-chinese-arian diet.  Now you have the tools to organize the accumulation of all those free napkins, pens, condiments and promotional swag!

This is a blast! Thanks for the recommendation. I've seen part of this film elsewhere but no English subtitles. Once when wandering through a night market in Beijing eating strange exotic delicacies on a stick we asked what something was and the stall hawker kept pointing down towards us. . .then he pointed at himself. . . below the waist. Finally he said, "Yak Dik"!!!! We didn't try it.

The "not bad" as a compliment is so true. It took me a while to figure out whenever my dad said "not bad" he meant it was good. When he said the same thing in Chinese he was literally saying "not wrong" which actually means it is pretty good, or right/correct. So in translating directly and literally to English, it changes a little.

Great interview! How fun! I haven't been there myself, but Sand Island Chop Suey serves eggs, rice and meat breakfasts until 10am. They have char siu for their plate lunches which are served all day. Perhaps they could make a plate brunch. The menu PDF is at the following link (cash only). http://www.whereyoulikeeat.com/restaurants/images/menu288.pdf

My mom wishes to point out that we don't "take" things that don't belong to us, we merely use or save what is "included." She also reminded me that I hardly ate anything at the buffet that night, they were concerned that I was not getting their money's worth, ziploc bags or not!

I think we ordered the dish containing taro in an honest attempt to eat something local. Thanks for the entertaining post!
