Festivals, FOOD, Uncategorized TAIWAN FOOD FESTIVAL 5 March 2009

Our very first food festival in Shanghai – the Taiwan Food Festival! Considering it was just a few minutes walk from our place, it was not hard to miss 😉 The odd thing was, instead of being on the massive main street of Nanjing Road, it was on the side street that runs just off it. More like a tiny lane, actually. Tres strange because it meant that it became like a bloody feeding trough, thanks to the throngs of people everywhere. I STILL haven’t gotten used to the sheer number of people in the City – throngs of people around me usually isn’t my cup of tea, but it’s made worse when they’re the pushy shovey type that have NO clue how to say “excuse me please” or “sorry”. Friggin’ hell….

Apart from that, it was fun checking out all the little stalls selling Taiwanese fare. I’m saying it’s authentic, but I’m pretty clueless about Taiwanese cuisine, so… 😉 Was a lot of fun, but I do miss the gloriously sunny blue skies of Australia when we always went food-fairing… it’s a far cry from the jostling behaviour of the locals here, in a freezing, dreary winter. Hurry up, summer!!


The crowded Taiwainese Food Festival

There was a massive vat of fried noodles there, was so tempted but the queue was too long!

Uncooked noodles and meatballs on display

This completely WEIRD gelatinous sausage-looking thing with bumps all over ’em *shudders*

Whole grilled fish, which was so popular almost everyone was chomping down on one

Beef wrapped around green onions and grilled

Sugary goodies

BBQ squid

These amazing, amazing prawn tempura – the breadcrumb batter was incredible!

The light coloured rolls are sticky rice, and the pinky rolls are sausages

They slilt the sticky rice sausage apart, and pop the sausage on top. IT IS AWESOME.

A dessert with your chosen filling – we picked custard!

Some sort of sweet “melon pudding”. I THINK they said it was “moo” something,
what kinda melon is it?? Couldn’t figure it out from the taste either…

Guy pounding away with his big stick. Oh LMAO.

Uhhh.. *snigger*


You Are Apple Juice


You’re very likable and quite popular. It’s hard not to find something to love about you.
You are playful and fun. You try to bring levity to situations.

While you are entertaining, you’re not very hyper or mischievous.
You are laid back, low key, and even a bit sensitive.

    To make sure you remember to take the drug try taking it at the same time every day – ways to take clomid . Unless they change in intensity or get bothersome – there is no need for you to tell your doctor about them.

      Taking less and less of this medication every several days will help you to stop the treatment without any unpleasant side effects, bestdrugsonline.co.uk the risk of overdosing is higher if you are not using a special measuring device for the liquid form.

      Quite rarely the following serious side effects can be experienced: hoarseness, skin rash, confusion, vomiting, depression, stomach pain, shortness of breath, itching, dizziness, extreme excitement, restlessness, and lightheadedness http://kopacialis.se/ ; tell your health care provider if you are planning on taking any drugs besides Adipex, especially fluoxetine, paroxetine, medications for weight loss and depression, guanethidine, insulin, vitamins, sertraline, fluvoxamine, or MAO inhibitors.

    Never take Adipex before talking to your health care provider if you have any particular medical conditions to be reported, levitra 10mg ! If you happen to miss a dose take it as soon as you remember.

    They didn’t have any Taiwanese fried chicken at the food festival? That’s my all time favourite Taiwanese food!

    Ambien (zolpidem) can be recommended for the treatment of insomnia and is supposed to be taken for up to 10 days unless otherwise prescribed pink viagra online ! It’s therefore efficient in the treatment of such conditions as anxiety, panic disorder and so ether ones as prescribed by your health care provider.

    My favorite tale is that of my friend in Shanghai, who has had older women push her out of her place in the queue at the store and gone ahead of her.

    Oh man look at the crowd! I get really mad when I go to Macs and they always shove me aside and cut the queue. That really gets on my nerve :/
    I’m pretty sure that the orange-y pudding was papaya. It’s called mu gua in Chinese. I grew up in Taiwan and I love their papaya milkshakes. It’s really good! Thick and creamy. YUM!

    The following ones are possible but can be avoided if you stop taking alprazolam gradually after talking to your health care provider: irritability, sleeplessness, anxiousness, and seizures: http://treatment-of-obesity.info/ ! Make sure you never take Adipex along with MAO inhibitors, as very dangerous effects can occur.

        Avoid drinking alcohol when taking Valium as it may worsen some of its side effects: buy acomplia cheap ? This makes it perfect for the treatment of panic attacks and anxiety disorders.
