Never try to bake apple pie in a country where:
- There are no pre-made pie crusts,
- The local supermarket and houseware stores do not sell measuring cups and spoons,
- Those measuring cups that do exist in the country are not the same as the ones in the US,
- There are no real ovens.
In other news, for your viewing pleasure, my Chinese class’s video for last week’s Language Center performance:
We didn’t win, but it was a valiant effort. I think it may have had something to do with the fact my Chinese accent sounds like some weird New York twang. “Hen duoooooo”. 哎喲. Something I’m definitely working on, but I suppose it adds to the film’s already comical effect.
The second place team actually hired a real camera crew to shoot and edit their movie. Tell me how that is fair, please, after I spent an entire night editing and adding captions to our movie start to finish. -_-
