CHEESE to the British ≈ LYCHEE to the Chinese
CHEESE ≈ LYCHEE
“Cheese to the British is like what Lychee is to the Chinese”
–unsubstantiated, presumptuous quote from some quirky, cackling blog author
Indeed. Amen. Selah. Cheese is AWESOME. So is LYCHEE. If only somebody made some sort of LYCHEE CHEESE. Notice the mathematical “almost equal to” sign I used above? Yah? Nice. But yes. LYCHEE CHEESE….That’d be amazing, if it existed. But would that mean a cow would have to eat pounds and pounds of lychee in order to produce Lychee flavoured milk?
But DANG, Cheese is so CHEAP here, in the UK! 200 grams of a Gruyere or a tasty local Leiscestershire is only like 1.5 GBP – 2 GBP. Granted, that’s at Salisbury’s, but that Leicestershire was pretty tasty still. I’m guessing even at a higher end cheese shops, the prices would be comparable, and just a bit higher. But certainly not the $8 – $10 CDN (or more) that it costs for the same thing! Everything else might be double the price here, but Cheese certainly is half the price (or more!). Actually, I admit, there’s a lot of inexpensive “groceries” here, that is comparable in price to your local T & T or local grocery store. And, if you look carefully, accessing the inner thrifty Chinese ancestor within, you can find some decent take out sandwiches and food that is comparable to Vancouver prices. In rare instances, equivalent food and quality will even be cheaper too! ..Well, maybe I see this b/c I’m not quite in Central London, but hop around it’s outer edges, which are the boroughs of Lewisham, New Cross, and Brockley. Still considered “Inner Boroughs” though (which means basically, more expensive).
But I digress from Cheese and Lychee.

Hmm..I don’t know what else to say about Cheese, or lychee. My repeated line of the day just simply stole the show.
