Milk... Chinese style
I still can't figure this out. The grocery store and convenient stores sell packages of milk... in small bags. How are you supposed to drink it? Poke a straw in it? Cut a hole and pour the milk into a glass? What's wrong with a carton?
And speaking of cartons, the other day I bought what I thought was a small carton of milk (niu nai), opened it and it had a thick texture.
For a split second I thought I bought heavy cream. But then I looked at the carton again and it was yogurt!
It's runny plain yogurt. And you can also get small containers of yogurt that you drink with a straw. Strange but true.
