Not one of my proudest moments

So today I bought a bao zi, a steamed bun filled with pork and other treats.  Here’s what it looks like if you’re not aware:

So I started eating, and then the texture got weird every once in a while, in a way that I could feel on my teeth. I dismissed it as being low quality meat and continued. Near the end of the bun, I saw that there was a slight flap hanging off the end of it. I peeled it, and realized that I had just consumed an unhealthy amount of wax paper.  Yes, you read that right.  I had apparently reverted to my younger years, in which I would eat paper to impress girls (times were tough back then).  Please don’t judge me.  Next time, I’ll try to make sure my brain moves faster than my appetite.

  1. Hi Paul! So is there actually a “healthy” amount of wax paper that should be consumed? Not judging, just asking. 🙂 Glad you’re not missing any meals, but I would suggest you slow down a bit. Hope you are well. Hope to see you stateside soon.
