I have been in China for one week now. My Grandma and my Mom are busy most of the time. I am super bored. Surprisingly, my Mom is encouraging me to watch TV. This has never happened before in the U.S. This is because I can practice my Chinese. There is only one channel here that I like. It is called Kaku. Kaku is basically the Chinese version of Disney Channel, Disney XD, Cartoon Network, Nickelodeon, and all the Power Ranger Movies mixed together. Weird, HUH? After a few days, my 3rd Auntie came from Australia to visit and to stay with us, I was happy. We could play cards and a new game called “Spot It”, and talk.
On the 6th day, Saturday, we had a big banquet at my Grandma’s house. I got to see my little chubby nephew and most of my cousins, aunties, and one of my uncles. The food was delicious. There was braised fish, roasted chicken, stir-fried shrimp, stir-fried vegetables, many salads, and soup. In total, there were at least fourteen dishes! My favorite was the braised fish. It was a whole fish but cut in half with the head and tail left on the fish. It was lightly browned on both sides and cooked with ginger, spring onion, with a touch of soy sauce sugar, and cooking wine. When I saw it, my mouth began to water! The texture was light and flaky. The taste was unbelievable. It was cooked through, very juicy, and tender. The fished smelled like the ocean.
I had an awesome time. I got to talk with my cousins, aunties, and uncle. Everyone was talking about the round little fellow. He is extremely cute, and likes to run a lot in the house.
