Man, I live with some nice folks. They're not my relatives but they're...nice. Nice enough to let me live in their house, use their car sometimes, use their kitchen, eat their food...yea we'll get to that in a minute. The thing is, they're chinese. And yea, I'm chinese too (well, technically 1/2 chinese 1/2 korean) but they are REALLY chinese. They buy anything that's not chinese (including medicine, clothes, etc), they dont watch anything that's not chinese (including chinese tv, radio, music, etc), and they don't eat anything except chinese food...and I mean ONLY chinese food (which is usually really oily). Now, I'm an italian food enthusiast...ok scratch that, I'm an enthusiast of any kind of food (except liver, kidneys and intestines) as long as it tastes good. Now, I have no problem with chinese food, but i feel insulted when i make some food that's not chinese and these people eat it and say it's "ok" or "maybe you should add some soy sauce". And I know I shouldn't feel this way but I do and it's very hard to let it not get to me. So, recently i've become distant to their chinese food or any chinese food for that matter. I basically have alienated myself from chinese food and the thought of it makes me uneasy. whew..i just had to let that out. respond if you want or share your experiences.
