China Daily Life Food Yunnan

I love bicycles and weekend junk food!



Last week Taurin and I were on a spontaneous bike ride when we saw a giant ferris wheel from a distance. As it turns out, we were right by the famousย Dian Lake, the eighth largest lake in China. It was close to sunset, so we returned to the park over the weekend. We had so much fun, and I’m totally hooked on bicycle adventures now.

A photo from last week when we sighted the ferris wheel.

This is the view of Dian Lake from the ferris wheel.

I secretly really like…green pea ice cream!


Walnut-shaped pancake snack with chopped up walnuts.

Matcha milk tea.

Passionfruit milk tea with jackfruit bits.

I figured out how to make gifs! This is us on the spinning teacup ride.

The sunset from my apartment rooftop. I love the mountains in the background.

P.S. This is sort of silly, but I’ve gotten really into twitting recently. Let’s be friends!

      Spinning rides are the best and the worst! ๐Ÿ™‚ The pancake snack was really good, except Taurin ate most of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Ohh I’m hoping to go on many more adventures, but I’m definitely going to try to avoid rush hour travel. Biking home around dinner tonight was crazy!

    I love that photo of the view from you apartment. So breathtaking!

    I’d be quick to say “I’m not sure about that” to the green pea ice cream, but I wasn’t so sure about red bean ice cream the first time I tried it and I loved it!

    I followed you on twitter. I’m @eyelashmoments.
