Good -in a while
However happy I am to be back in China my stomach isn't and I am getting a flash back of those uncomfortable stomach feelings I used to get after lunch during my first few months in China. The other day I had a really spicy, but oily meal, and the next day the stomach felt like a blown up balloon, and I felt really heavy. Darn, I thought all of this was over by now? Sure, in the beginning or when u first come here it takes some time before your belly gets used to the new bacteria culture, the chillies, the oil (yuk) and the MSG (double yuk), but since when do u have to go through that phase again and again?!
Yesterday I had Korean bibimpab for dinner and no heavy feeling appeared afterwards... it's got to be the oil. I guess I just have to suffer for a while before the belly learns how to handle large amounts of grease again.
Good stuff -always
