» It’s Chinese New Year today or something.The special temp gave me a candied lotus seed because we’re "supposed to eat sweets to make the new year sweet." It took me hours to get the horrific taste out of my mouth. It was like the essence of a dodgy import shop condensed into a small yellow lump and rolled in sugar. It’s the year of the Ox. Come to think of it, the candy sort of tasted like Ox hair.
