McDonalds – not, in my opinion, anything that the West should be proud of. They represent alot of bad things, and their food is certainly not to my taste. Its been many years since i ruled them out as a takeaway option, with Burger King & KFC just about passable.
As of this week though, McDonalds is back! And i will make no apologies. Organising dinner after a long day work can be a pain, particularly when you dont speak the local lingo. I have many days here when the simpler option defeats the better quality food option. Most food deliveries though sting me 3 pounds for delivery, which over the course of the week begins to add up. McDonalds, with all their plastic burgers and floppy vegetables though, only 70p and can bring it all around quickly so everything is still warm – great!
For the time being i am putting health & fitness issues aside and just getting on with stuff. If i was entirely worried about my health, i wouldn’t be living in Shanghai, i guess. I’ll have plenty of time to reverse this behaviour in the future, so for now will stuff my face with junk food and enjoy it for what it is. I think being health conscious all the time, is a little dull.
[ For the record, try Sherpas for a bit variety, if you haven’t already. Hell, maybe even try cooking something yourself ]
