Lemon 7-up is absolutely delicious! They call it ningmengqi or 柠檬七.
柠檬 (lemon) + 七 (7). It’s basically 7-up with squeezed lemon in it. Delicious!
I usually order it 多多冰 (duo duo bing). 多means more/extra. In Chinese, saying something twice makes it stronger – so 多多 means ‘a lot extra’. 冰 means ‘ice’.
So I get 柠檬七多多冰 (ningmenqi duoduobing) or lemon 7-up with lots of ice. It’s possible I’m supposed to say the Ice first- my grammar isn’t that good. 😂 But they understand me! It cost me 7￥ or about 1$.
If you visit #China. you should try it. Very Good and super refreshing!
Took my first ever motor Scooter ride today! Drove about 3 hours out and about. Saw lots of cool things, Including this vegetable garden in front of the public toilet 😂
Iced Coffee #China style! Here in Henan, most restaurants don’t have ice. The Chinese don’t really like iced drinks – believing the cold unboiled water will make them sick and is a bad combination with your inside organs. (Probably true of the water here.)
But Ice Cream is a different story. Still bad for your health but not so likely to kill you. So if you Order iced coffee or an iced soda You’ll get Ice cream coffee or a ice cream float 😄
Ooh. . . . Seaweed Chips! 😂 The perfect junk food. They have the weirdest Types of chips here – no BBQ or Chedder Sour Cream. Nope, It’s Seaweed, Green Tea, Squid, Roasted Lamb, Hot Pot, and Yoghurt
Cheating China style 😰 So annoying. No notes mid-term exam, somehow they had magic notes under the keyboard. ‘Teacher, It’s not mine. I Don’t know where it came from!’
Funny. . . You’re the only one in this seat. 😡 How do they even read a font that small?
Honey-Glazed Ham, Deviled & Colored eggs, Green Beans, Cole Slaw, Rolls, Scalloped Potatos, Drinks and more! My Chinese student Harry came yesterday to cook and craft with me, then today good friends came for the party!
Awww! Made some new friends! #可爱!
In Chinese, ‘ke ai’ is Cute! Like these cuties!
Cooking is tragic work!! Grating onions today, left me in tears. 😭😂
The Art students at my university are allowed to paint random building walls here on campus to show off their skills. This one is dedicate to tee Chinese president – lots of support and nationalism here!
