（English Text below Chinese)
Kind of funny （or ironic) that I saw a coffee cup when I entered the metro in New york, then a liquor store as I got out, because affordable good coffee and good wine are just what I miss in China, besides all the friends I left behind.
Not that I couldn’t find wine or coffee in China, but they are made symbols for ” luxurious western – often mistaken for good – taste” here so that I can’t really afford consuming them, at least not often. I was angry to find a cup of 2-buck coffee cost 35 to 50 RMB and decided not to consume any coffee outside home. Fortunately, I can make coffee at home. But it is a pain when I travel. As for wine, just forget it here in China. A 15-buck wine would cost at least 350 RMB (around $50). So I drink home made Hakka wine now.
