Q: Anyone else feel sick after drinking pearl milk tea?

I don't think my stomach agrees with those tapioca pearls in milk tea. Each time I drink a cup here, my stomach starts hurting and I feel nauseous. Yet for some reason I still keep drinking it. I think I'm addicted to the texture of those pearls.

there are some foods and drinks in China that are an acquired taste. For me, my brain tells me something is visually unappealing, but it tastes GREAT enlightened !! Likewise, there are some foods that LOOK delicious but ........ There is no logic to it at all !

you mean the ones that are sold in those small drink shops? They don't use anything natural there. It's mostly powders full of chemicals mixed with water. Everything in it is bad for health. The only drinks that should be allowed to be drunk are beer, homebrewed coffee, bottled/filtered water and green tea.

Sometimes, but I thought it was because I always get the one mixed with pudding, which then feels very heavy if I drink all of it.

I'll try the one without pearls next time and see if it's the same.

I like tapioca pudding but the large tapioca is very difficult to find at home. Never tried pearl tea. I tried so many things in China that I didn't like that I quit trying new things. Some things were so bad that I had to spit them out. That may be limiting myself. I found 2 cookies that I like and a little loaf of egg bread with almonds that I am addicted to. Every store in Guilin had that bread. Is it available every where?

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
