Sounds like her dad’s an abusive bastard. Deliberately giving her food poisoning so she can’t leave the house, making her stay in the purpose built basement where he’ll have his way with her, They’l;l have children, celebrate xmas, etc., all the while leading a normal life with mam upstairs. Oh, wait. That’s been done. Sorry, Newcastle right? Not Neu-Pischelsdorf.
@Boz: The chinese food they serve in almost every Chinese Restaurant is Americanized bullshit. I’ve talked to quite a few native Chinese people and they call most of the food “candy food” that they wouldn’t let their own kids touch.
Cooking Chinese food at home is fun and you get to at least know what goes into it. I made some sesame chicken the other day that was actually SLIGHTLY healthy!
Btw, is Gemma’s dad’s name “aii”? Or is that the sound she makes because she loves him so much?
I could never touch American Chinese fast food. I imagine it comes as something of a shock to Chinese visitors. But, by the same token, I have no faith in non-Chinese people winging it either. The potential for fuckups is too great.
