  1. Stephanie Soo talked about your channel so I was curious. Started with the boba tea video and now I'm here and it's almost 3am here for me. Your channel is really interesting!
    By the way, I'm a Portuguese born Chinese so…. I gotta say it I am not a fan of the KFC egg tart. It's soooo not an egg tart. But still very interesting story that I didn't know!
