Earlier this month KFC announced it’s new limited-edition ‘Cheese Thick Mushroom Vegetarian Burger’ (芝士厚菇素尊堡) via Weibo. So, if you’re vegetarian lacking fast-food options or just a food adventurer always on the search for new treats to tantalize your tastebuds then KFC (might) have you covered.

We’re yet to get a bite of this burger that encrusts a portobello mushroom with four kinds of cheese in KFC’s classic deep-fried signature batter. Layered with fresh tomato, lettuce and a squeeze of accompanying burger sauce it’s an alternative to the classic chicken burgers that’s so popular amongst the locals (not so much with the expats).

It’s got mixed reviews from netizens with one raving about it “to be really delicious!” “The fried batter is particularly crisp!…and I don’t feel too greasy after eating.” However, not everyone was a huge fan with one netizen claiming, “It’s an insult to burgers… the one I wanted was sold out early, so I had to eat the vegetarian burger… I will never eat a meatless burger in my life again.”

It wasn’t too long ago that The People’s Bank of China announced that it will release new versions of Chinese money and the announced date for the new banknotes and coins will be August 30th, 2019.

中国人民银行不久前宣布,新版人民币将于2019年8月30日发行。

It’s quite likely that if we didn’t even mention this you probably wouldn’t notice as the changes will be so minute but here we are. The latest series of bills will have a very similar design to the previous editions, except that the colour has been brightened and its “note structure effect has been optimized.”

由于变化太小,乍一看我们很难发现新旧版本人民币外观上的区别。除了纸币票面颜色变亮和“票面结构效果优化”以外,新版人民币整体设计都和之前版本类似。

The latest series includes notes with values of 1 Yuan, 10 Yuan, 20 Yuan, and 50 Yuan, as well as coins with the values of 1 Yuan, 5 Jiao and 1 Jiao.

新发行的纸币票面包括1元、10元、20元和50元,新版硬币包括1元、5角和1角。

The coins also don’t have any significant change except for the 5 jiao coin, which is now silver instead of gold, and the 1 yuan coin is smaller.

新版5角硬币将从金色变成银色,同时1元硬币也将变得更小,此外其他硬币在外观上都没有明显改变。

The changes, although small to the general public, will be better protected from counterfeiting. The new notes and coins will circulate parallel to previous editions with the same value.

此次新版人民币虽然整体变化不大,但是防伪能力和印制质量获得了提升。而新旧两版人民币将同时并行使用,价值保持不变。

However, with mobile payments being the most popular form of payment across China, you’ll be lucky to even see the new money!

然而,随着中国移动支付的日益普及,你甚至都很难见到新版的人民币!

Our beloved Simba is back and this time in a live-action remake of arguably one of Disney’s most iconic films to date. Best of all, it’s being released in China (July 12) a whole week before the USA (July 19).

我们最爱的辛巴回来了!狮子王作为迪士尼迄今为止最具代表性的电影之一,这次让整个丛林世界跃出二维世界,以全新的真人翻拍形式来到你的面前。这次《狮子王》在中国领先美国一周上映,将在7月12日登陆院线!

In case you just arrived on planet earth yesterday, The Lion King is the story of young Simba who idolizes his father, King Mufasa, and takes to heart his own royal destiny on the plains of Africa. But not everyone in the kingdom celebrates the new cub’s arrival. Scar, Mufasa’s brother — and former heir to the throne — has plans of his own. The battle for Pride Rock is soon ravaged with betrayal, tragedy and drama, ultimately resulting in Simba’s exile. Now, with help from a curious pair of newfound friends, Simba must figure out how to grow up and take back what is rightfully his.

《狮子王》的故事家喻户晓。木法沙国王是丛林之王,他的儿子辛巴从小崇拜他,希望可以在非洲平原上延续家族荣耀。可是王国中存在着其他势力觊觎国王的权利。刀疤是木法沙的兄弟,作为前王位继承人,他计划一场阴谋。不幸的背叛降临在整个王国之中,丛林之争一触即发,最终辛巴被迫流亡。之后,辛巴在一群新朋友的帮助下,逐渐经历成长,最终收回了原本属于他的荣耀。

Cantonese with dual Simplified Chinese/English subtitles.

《扫毒2》讲述了一个香港黑白两道缉毒行动的角力之争。余顺天是慈善家兼金融大佬,小的时候亲眼目睹了父亲被毒品折磨,于是对毒品嫉恶如仇,悬赏一亿赏金展开了一场歼灭香港最大毒贩的缉毒行动。

If you like authentic German food, look no further than Sina’s Fine Food.

Sina is the owner of her namesake restaurant. She ensures that all delivery orders are sent out with the utmost care. The chef Hans creates all the dishes and makes sure they taste great. The menu is divided into three sections: starters, mains, and desserts. There’s also a top-notch selection of beverages along with sausages for bbq season! Not only do they offer a big selection of “Bratwurst” from pork, but also made with chicken and beef.

You might’ve already seen the couple at your local food market selling cured meats, sausages and other western delicacies. Now, you can enjoy chef Hans cooking up some German delicacies with Sherpa’s delivering it straight to your door.

And as the summer gets in full swing you can also enjoy barbecued meats, like Thuringia sausages, and the south German bestseller Munich White Sausages with a side of sweet mustard.

That’s just the German traditional food that we’re all familiar with, but for Germans, there is more to enjoy when it comes to hearty meals. The schnitzel is a popular dish for most Germans and it’s often served with potatoes and steamed vegetables.

If pork or chicken is not your thing and you’re craving some roast beef then Sina’s Fine Food has your fix. Their roast beef with dumplings (Klöße in German) and red cabbage is about authentic as you’ll ever find in China.

But what good is good food when it’s not packaged properly? Sina´s Fine Food take the utmost care in the packaging of their food, with a ‘Top’ sticker on the lid and well-packaged means it can arrive to you intact and still hot. As well as classic German main dishes they also have a range of starters and desserts, open the Sherpa’s App to see their full menu!
