It is not easy for me to get lotus roots here in Nova Scotia. I have to take a 4hrs car ride to the city.. to get some .. and even then.. the lotus roots look horrid. If I order them. .and get a courier service to bring some chinese food down from the asian grocery store.. you can bet that the lady boss will give me stuff that are either expired.. or about to rot.. like these lotus roots. But I’m at her mercy. .and take whatever that i can get .. and make the best outta it.
If you are thinking of migrating.. or kahwin cowboy.. like myself.. you better think again.. because you won’t get the kinda food you can get from home easily.. and you will definitely get home sick. Love or no love.. you are gonna start resenting.. if you cannot go home frequently for a visit.. or get food from home easily. So .. either move to a chinese city in ang moh land.. or marry someone RICH..!!! ok.. ok.. not rich.. but at least can afford to let you go home every 2 years.. and NOT OWNING THEIR OWN BUSINESS..!!!
