Here comes the summer time!The weather has been hot and humid for quite a while,which really drives me crazy.Don't get me wrong,I love summer and I love sunshine,but humidity is definitely not a good thing!In the meanwhile,I'm chased by endless tests and piles of homework.It's like I'm going to be physically and mentally worn out,but at least there's something which keeps me going.That's right,the summer vacation!I can't help being excited on hearing that pleasing word!Yay!Two more weeks to go!
The subtropical weather curbs my appetite,so I usually goes with cold food,such as sushi and sandwiches lately.Since I was going to have an interview last weekend,my friend and I just randomly picked a place to dine,and we thought Thai food might be a good option.However,it turned out that the food was not as refreshing as I'd expected.I still don't like the fried shrimp cake.Due to its pretty appearance,I thought I was going to change my mind.The chicken and the green papaya salad were fine,but they weren't worthy of that price.Besides,the decoration of the green papaya salad was bad,since there was a piece of fake leaf,which looked pretty cheap.
I just thought of an interesting fact about fried shrimp cakes.Truth is,there's no fried shrimp cake in authentic Thai cuisine.That's some kind of Taiwanese invention.I nearly can guarantee that every Thai restaurant has that dish in Taiwan.The funny thing is,given the fact that Thailand is a popular tourist attraction for Taiwanese people,there will be quite a few people that visit the country and choose this particular dish.I've heard that to cater to our partiality for this fare,some restaurants in Thailand have started to sell fried shrimp cake!
