  1. I’m from HZ and I have never even seen 糖醋煎饺。Maybe next time I’ll seek it out.
    Should have included snacks like 萝卜糕,定胜糕,油炸臭豆腐,五香豆腐干, etc

  2. Am I the only one that noticed he put the Soccer ball down on the floor to get the shoes so basically he shouldn’t get anything because he dropped the Soccer ball

  3. season 1, thanks for the great work!
