In Asia fooding

Im in Asia right now eating a lot of stufff.

Ill update every day of what i eat. Ill have pics up later

Day 1. Breakfast - Taiwanese Breakfast. Yung He Soy Milk. This is really differnt from the soy milk you buy at the store. Its really creamy and sweet. Drink hot or cold. I ate a sandwich with this thing thats sort of like a fried crossant but better. Its called a yiou tiao.

Lunch - Dim Sum FRESH- not like thsoe things you find on the carts. Dessert - Mango Chua Bing which is FRESH mangos on top of shaved ice with condensed milk. only for 1.50 american. Portion = HUGE.

Dinner - Mini Shrimp (unpeeled. the shell is soft enough to eat), pigs blood thing, and Do gan (dried tofu), Rice with ground beef with soy sauce and a lu dan ( soy sauce egg). Desssert Almond Chua Bing - its like shaved ice but instead of the ice its shaved almond milk and you get to choose 4 things to go with it. I choose Red Bean, Taro, chinese tapioca, and something. I think i only spent like 6 american all all that food.

Funny food of the day - Turkish guy selling turkish ice cream, cept he amazes the crowd with his tricks. I'll have a vid up of this guy later

Dessert: almond chua bing (shaved ice thing) agagin, then drank limeomade fresh sqeezed, the turkish guy wasn't performing today cause there wasn't a big crowd so i couldn't get a vid of him. Ate some strawberry tart cake, and then some fresh lycee from the garden.

Next day: Chinese bread with red bean stuff and apple milk (its this milk with apple flavor ) good stuff
