friedwontons4u Lunch today and trying a new-to-me product. Brown Rice Green Tea Pho Noodle with Oyster Mushrooms and Beef Tendon Balls. Noodles are from Star Anise Food. Will be writing a full review of the noodles in a few days, but so far I really like it. The noodles have a good texture and flavor, plus it's also gluten free. Philly followers, you can pick up a pack @wfm_callowhill. #VSCOcam #fw4u #staranisefood #glutenfree #noodles 2d

friedwontons4u #tbt That one time I fulfilled a childhood fantasy of walking around in a Chinese garden dressed up like I was from the Ming dynasty. I wish it was possible to go zip lining in this outfit. Then it would feel like I'm flying. #VSCOcam #sydney 3w
