What about dogs?
you go to the meat market, and they only sell the shitty parts of the cow - and they are all bad quality. but they cut up the cow..where the fuck did the good peices go?
why cant i find them?
the beef is prepared differently and their cows are genetically different from what you're used to
learn to love tendon and sinew
people in the deep south eat dog in the winter, 90% of china despises it
i do enjoy the shit parts, but sometimes i just want a steak
im from Texas, USA - so beef is everywhere
i went to hong kong last month on vacation
and i actually went to a fucking outback steakhouse and ate a steak
i don't think that's gonna happen broseph; i went to a few "streakhouses" back then but they don't even know how to prep steak when they have good quality meat. you're gonna have to go to a coastal city and pay insane prices for it
they insist on cornstarching beef
to break down the proteins to make everything tender
Do people wear a lot of fake designer clothes?
but that sucks because it destroys steak
People in china are poor
i do cornstarching meat too specialy if its pig
people wear fake shit, but they really buy a lot of the real stuff too
it makes a better stir fry
theres a stigma against fakes here
people are obsessed with brand names
iphone, samsung, gucci
serpentza is that you?
they want to FLAUNT their new money
its a status symbol for the family
yeah it's ironic isn't it
All the Chinese transfers at my uni have designer shit, supreme, Bape, off white, really throws me off because I go to a cheaper college
its important to them and their parents
many expat chinese I know reject that sort of consumerism
but they're 2nd/3rd gen
yeah, its not in their blood, its their new culture
imagine going from a poor communist country where everyone is the same and they punished anyone trying to be different
American Chinese and new Chinese are so different
to having fucking loads of cash and being able to show that your family made it
yeah they're completely different people, but unfortunately the blowback is that americans are starting to treat all chinese the same (read: poorly)
They're ripping us off!!
