    Cunnilingus does leave a stale taste I always find a page of the little Red book smeared with Maotai and sichan chilli clear the palette for 3 delicious things

    Great thing about Budhist vege restauarants they can make Tofu taste like some is suckling your....

    If you need a food parcel Tongzhi or a trip to the "barbers shop" may take your mind of the sterlie sameness of anomie ennui in the Pupils Re Pub Lick O'Lies

    Pretty close, 595 kuai, (local beer, Tsing Tao), (57 GBP, 95 USD, 70 Euro, 3,100 B.)
    As for the Baozi steamed buns, bland, Cantonese food, for the most part oily and bland, not many muzzy places around apart from the noodle shops which I do enjoy.
    Sichuan hotpot, not bad but again, same same everything's just chili flavoured,
    Not come across any budhist vege places, for the most part Chinese aren't vegetarian, they eat a lot of pork and chicken.
    Fucking rice 3 times a day.
    The corn flakes are for the kids breakfast and gets some milk into them.
    Sometimes I like to have a curry or an Irish stew or sausage and mash with peas or pizza or fish 'n chips or a roast, or a cheese toasty or a spag bol or savoury mince on toast or beans or pretty much anything that hasn't been ruined by being prepared by Chinese.
    (I can't understand how the Chinese have never discovered roasting)

    Tsingtao a great beer bad at old German brwery in Shandong
    I understand the milk for kids but Corn Flakes?
    Any way each tpo there own
    The lack of oven was partly cost
    In Europe where a fire in the home was the norm until central heating ,placing a metal box on the side of the range was a natural extension,most villagers would have prpepared bread then walked to the local baker who had a big Pizza style oven with a wooden paddle

    Enjoy,when I lived in China aside from Carrefour Wetsrn luxury were rare so I guess I got used to it,but ther were lots of muslim stalls selling lamb ,kebabas etc,not sure where you re but if there is aMosque look nearby there will likely be some Woolimoochi me with a BBQ

    Bon Appetit,
    PS the Instant Irish Stew
    $ parts stout one part Bushmilss !

    Cheers.
    I was always under the impression that corn flakes were reasonably heathy, each 'flake' being a pressed kernal of corn.

    Kellog was a maniac keen on cold showers birch beatings ther's a great film about him.

    I guess the raw materilas if not GMO may be ok for filling roof cavity I wouldn't feed to a dog plus all the packaging surely some linzi or orange better for kids?One of my co actors who later did well in USA Sir A Hopkins starred.Bye the way he's alovely bloke.

    Dr. John Harvey Kellogg opened a sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan, where he practiced his unusual methods for maintaining health, including colonic irrigation, electrical stimulus and sexual abstinence, vegetarianism and physical exercise. The sanitarium attracts well-to-do patients including William and Eleanor Lightbody, who are suffering from poor health following the death of their child. On their way to Battle Creek they meet Charles Ossining, hoping to make a fortune by exploiting the fad for health food cereals.
    Ossining finds a partner in Goodloe Bender. Having enlisted the services of George Kellogg, the doctor's estranged adopted son, they attempt to produce "Kellogg's Perfo Flakes."
    In the sanitarium, Will Lightbody is separated from his wife, and is soon harboring lustful thoughts toward Nurse Graves and patient Ida Muntz. His wife Eleanor, meanwhile, befriends Virginia Cranehill, who has a modern attitude toward sexual pleasure, influenced by the works of Dr. Lionel Badger. Will eventually succumbs to Ida Muntz's charms. Later he learns that Ida has died during treatment. Following the death of a patient in the sinusoidal bath, and the discovery of yet another death, Will suffers a breakdown, flees the sanitarium, gets drunk and eats meat. At a restaurant, he meets Ossining, and agrees to invest $1,000 in his health food business. Will returns drunk to the sanitarium, where he is reprimanded by Dr. Kellogg and is abandoned by a distraught Eleanor.
    Ossining's business is a disaster, with no edible product. He and the partners resort to stealing Kellogg's cornflakes and repackaging them in their own boxes. Ossining meets his aunt, a potential investor, on visiting day at Kellogg's sanitarium, and is there exposed as a fraud and arrested.
    Nurse Graves attempts to seduce Will, who is guilt-stricken and spurns her advances. He searches for Eleanor, only to find her and Virginia Cranehill receiving clitoral massages from Dr. Spitzvogel as Dr. Badger is masturbating. Will is incensed, thrashes Dr. Spitzvogel with a branch and takes Eleanor away.
    George Kellogg visits his father, but things go badly. George burns down the sanitarium. In the ensuing chaos, Ossining escapes. Kellogg seem to reconcile with George in the mud bath in the aftermath of the fire.
    In a final coda, the Lightbodys are happily married, with four daughters. Will receives a cheque for $1,000 from Ossining, who has become a cola beverage tycoon. Dr. Kellogg dies of a heart attack while diving from a high board.

    I'm interested to know if it's considered good, bad or indifferent value.
    Not all can be bought in the supermarket. Some things, cheese for example, must be found at a stall at the wet market.

    You can gey almost anything in Amoy,Xiamen,Gaunzhou or Shenzhen,Shahai,Tianjin even Wuhan and Teowcha areas have lots of expats these days or links to Honkers?
