#250posts24hrsAAPI - 43: Next Time I'm In Vietnam I'm Going To Try Something Fury (Is This Too Chinky For You?)

Saturday, May 20, 2017

I was down in the motherland last month and while I didn't get a ton of time there as I had a ton to do (maybe more posts on that later - or not - we'll see where I go with the rest of these posts because I'm not even half way there yet), I will in fact go down and find some of those places, wherever I can find them (as I'm sure some are not there anymore).

It's not necessarily like I'm dying to eat someone fury, but I was talking with a friend about this, and it is a Western thing - and for some odd reason I feel like I should at least try this just because.

It doesn't mean I'm stealing pets in the middle of the night for good - let's not take this out of context - and some might equate this post with a bad joke about dog eating Asians - but that's kind of the point too - because it's not.

But where do we draw the line between "acceptable" practices here in America from an Asian American perspective, and what's deemed "acceptable" in other countries - specifically our Motherlands?

And that's not to say it's prevalent in the Motherland either - because it's not - so let's get that clear as well too.

But it's there if you want to find it.

Just some thoughts.
