Today is the day.
Today’s the day you find out what my voice sounds like, what all my weird mannerisms are, and how excited I get over cheap, vegan food.
I randomly had the thought to make a video and it was super fun! The quality isn’t great since I just used my iPhone, but I hope this video gives you a glimpse into what my life in China looks like. The first clip is my favorite part of the video. It’s so subtly funny you might not catch what’s going on, but basically on our way to dinner Brett and I saw an old many using his electric wheelchair as a car. None of the Chinese people around us seemed to think twice about it, but we couldn’t stop laughing!
If you’re not the video watching type, just scroll down to see pictures of some of the food I ate throughout the day.
(definitely watch it in 720p)
This was another weirdly scheduled eating day. To break my fast I had some cantaloupe and then tucked into a savory first meal of the day, which isn’t normal for me. Give me ALL the sweet breakfast foods! This day I had a huge salad (that you can’t even see) topped with tons of roasted veggies, baked potatoes, steamed rice, hummus and Sriracha. So many of my favorite foods in one massive bowl.
Before Brett and I walked to dinner I ate a large, juicy apple. Then dinner was really exciting. We’ve heard that our city has a restaurant that sells thick, chewy noodles from a provence called Xi’an and we were so excited to finally go eat there. I ordered the noodle soup with veggies and it was amazing. So simple but so flavorful from all the spices, oil, green onion and cilantro. YUM!
On our walk back home I also got my first Boba Tea since moving to China and some watermelon.
Then, as usually happens, I still wasn’t satisfied after my Chinese food so at home I had one of my Chocolate Tahini Brownie Bites and more cantaloupe.
Have you ever lived overseas?
