Zhang Fei beef jerky

I love beef jerky, especially Oberto beef jerky. I used to eat a lot of those while in university. Oberto jerky comes in different flavors, from original to teriyaki. Its hard and chewy.

While visiting China, I found the Chinese version of beef jerky, Zhang Fei beef. Zhang Fei was a general from the three kingdoms period. So what does a historical general got to do with beef jerky? I have no idea, let me know if you do.

The big pack.

The individual pack.

The beef meat itself.

Actually, it doesn't really qualify as a jerky because its not really dried. The meat is still moist and tender. Zhang Fei beef also comes in a variety of flavors and they even have beef tendon. It taste really good! However, both Oberto and Zhang Fei are not cheap. Good stuff don't come cheap.

Oreo wafer stick

There is a new Oreo on the market and its not a cookie sandwiched with different filling in the middle. Its actually a wafer stick so you can't twist it and lick it, but you can still dunk it in milk if you prefer.


It taste just like the cookie but its a wafer. Yummy! The price is not cheap though, its 4 bucks for a pack of 5.

Dazu Grottoes

Dazu Grottoes, located in the Dazu county on mount Baoding, has a history dating back as far as the 7th century A.D. It is listed by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage Site in 1999 and is one of the four greatest stone sculpture treasure troves in China. It is a series of rock carvings depicting Buddhist beliefs. Its a long ride from Chongqing to the site, roughly 2 hours.

Chongqing is totally different from Chengdu. The first thing I notice is the airport looks much more modern than Chengdu. Since we arrive late at night, we went straight to the hotel. On the way, we saw the beautiful Chongqing skyline with buildings all lit up with colorful lights. Chongqing is modern just like another major metropolitan cities you find in developed countries.
