Tasty food. Good luck with business, felafel people!
here's a couple others i thought you missed out. Its just for fun, so no offense to anyone intended :-)
- the seedy, old, pedophile-like laowai teaching English and in China for the sex he would never be able to find elsewhere. Usually with a young, 20-30 something year-old local girl on his arm. Definitely divorced at least twice: once in China and once in his home country.
- the alcoholic misfit, continually drunk, teaching ESL. Begins with a beer before class and drinks himself blind every night, getting himself into lots of trouble in the process. Most common expression is "i don't remember, I was drunk". Other laowai are continually amazed about how he got a job in the first place and how he continues to function everyday, before remembering that this is China.
- the black guy from Nigeria/Cameroon/someplace in Africa, inevitably doing import-export, probably used to live in Guangzhou. Sometimes teaches ESL on the side for fun.
- the aspiring DJ who suddenly gained 'fame' turning tables in Chinese nightclubs. Constantly complaining about how Chinese people "dont appreciate how little DJs make" and how door prices for shows are already so low.
- The know-it-all laowai geek who trolls forums commenting and adding his opinion on laowai stereotypes.
I'm no psychologist, but if you analyze these posts closely, we can see evidence someone being schizo! hahaha!! amazing thread.
And as far as Dick goes, he's a nice guy and like some other posters said, good at heart and a family man. If you don't have anything good or constructive to say, just piss off and troll another forum to vent your obsessive compulsive need for attention.
kind of going with Balmer on this one. What bloody floods in 2010?
Does anyone know where i can watch the world cup semis cricket OZ-India match on tomorrow?? Is it being broadcast live at the shamrock in the afternoon? Or anywhere else?
been to daocheng county twice, and have visited the yading national park. i once looked into trekking the yading-luguhu route, to my knowledge there's no road or bike path. would be very surprised if there turned out to be one.
I'm happy to say that we found the set meal at the new Sultan to be very satisfying. As my wife doesn't eat beef, they served us chicken dishes instead- the kebabs were delicious, as well as the roasted and spiced chicken legs. The bread and hummus dip was pretty tasty, too. I have to admit I was surprised by the overall good quality of the food and I'd definitely recommend it. The apple-flavoured sheesha topped the meal off nicely. The menu, however, is not complete and so you can only order the set meal for now. Hopefully the set meal is an indication of things to come in the new menu!
For those who haven't been to Safari for over a year or longer, there is a really wide selection of dishes here now and my wife really loves the briyani (she's Indian- and always pooh poohs the Indian food in Chengdu). We were there the other night and had a great sheesha session (lemon and cardamon), the babaganoush dip was lovely and good news for those who don't want to eat meat, there's plenty of vegetarian options.
I know that service in China as a rule is generally pretty awful, but the floor manager (who was Chinese) knew the menu and ingredients inside out, and was very helpful and friendly to us. I've read a few other reviews on this thread complaining about the service, but all i can say is that they must have been unlucky.
The only problem is that it's all a bit pricey, but IMO it's worth it.
