Fiya’s trip to China: A tale of two extremes.
I get confused by many things in this world. My top three are currently…
- Politics (specifically the 2016 election)…
- Female emotions and…
- How the Kardashians rose to fame.
Then I went to China. Believe me when I say, China is by far the most confusing!
I am Chinese. Full, 100%, purebred Chinese…but I was born and raised in America.

- Belle is initially shocked at the way the Beast looks (ok, this one is und...

In the span of 21 food filled days, I have had the pleasure…and displeasure…of trying over 1,000 different treats. That number is correct. If proof is needed then I am more than willing to post a picture of everything I crammed in my face hole or even a picture of my newly acquired muffin top! I’m sure you wouldn’t care to see such horrors so let’s just touch on the really good, the really bad and the really…really random.
There are some items that I don’t have a name for so…I gave them nicknames. Here…We…GO!
