Technology has made the world a very small place. So small that Brenda Liu and Natty Somnam did not experience much culture shock when they arrived in Chelmsford from Asia in August.

While I am not sure what exactly the intent of the article is - you are right. We had an exchange student live with us when I was in high school. She was from Japan and she went home about 20 pounds heavier! Gotta love good ole American food. Once she went home though, she lost the weight very quickly!

The intent of the article was about how Chinese Food in America is different to Chinese Food in China. Espcially with your Panda Express and Fortune Cookies! And when people never get their authentic hometown food chances are they might get homesick more easily!

I have a question for Chinese Americans in the SF bay area: why are the Chinese Restaurants so bad?

The Chinese food in small town American is four times better.

Go figure.

Anyways, I asked one of my Chinese friends where to go for good Chinese.

His answer: his place.

Pho Da Lat is good.

So is Etsogo's downtown - fantastic sushi at great prices, authentic japanese dishes as well as the run of the mill asian cuisine such as chicken wings, teriyaki etc..
