Hi Kyrie, going to China and living there is no joke. China is so different from the US. I lived in Japan for a few years after college. For an asian person who spoke a bit of the language, I didn’t have trouble ordering in restaurants etc.. But, even then, the cultural shock was immense.. it’s lonely being an expat in the beginning. I’m glad this cucumber dish made your experience a bit better. I love this dish.. sometimes I make it at home.. it’s a staple Shanghainese dish.
