The mall (Golden , here in 2008 is in the corner of Main Street and 4th Road. It came to my attention when it became a Chinese supermarket. After a while, the supermarket was gone and various food vendors took over the place, here in 2009.
I thought I had nothing to do with it. In fact, I only shopped in that defunded grocery store twice. Many years ago, a friend’s mom took me back there for an authentic meal of dumpling and chives pancakes. I’m hocked.
This dumpling corner makes pretty good dumpling. But the dill filling often has sand. When I brought this up to them, the women dismissed it, just like a good ol’ Chinese.
I stopped buying from them. It’s just disgusting.
.. who’s going to win, you or your stomach?
I went back there today and discover they have a new product: the pumpkin sesame ball: light and not too sweet. When I ordered two serves of dumpling and this sweet sticky ball, the staff was temporarily lost in her math. One of the diners provided the figure:

Getting the visa: paying more to a service/ticket agency for more but I ended up with a two year visa, the first time ever.
The building boom is still going strong, all the cities we visited, they were dusty and the sameness is evident. Sad. Many tourist attractions have decent bathrooms but no tissue! How much would bathroom tissue cost, in comparison to the structures?
The online purchasing is thriving but where the FedEx and UPS is in USA, it’s the little three wheelers in China; the bathroom guy. Brought two yogurt machine home but the yeast or fermentation agent is hard to find in USA
