  1. Lao you tiao may well be from the story of how you tiao started, fried the 2 traitors, who poison the emporor's mind and cause the death of a hero, nobody dared to say out loud but made the fried dough for all to bite and eat them, not to mention frying them.

  2. …learn this from my friends in Asia, when someone said to you……….you’re a “Banana” when you’re a Chinese person that means you’re yellow outside (your skin are Chinese) but white in the inside means a “white” (westerner) person trap inside a Chinese cover….which means don’t act like a westerner when you’re a Chinese……..but I am white on the outside and yellow inside, what kind of fruit will I be than?………..

  3. the soy sauce isn't used in that way. it's like someone who has certain responsibilities assigned to them, but they fail to do ANYTHING. they are getting soy sauce, or if they say, i am just getting soy sauce, meaning, i did not do ANYTHING
