Cool SEWTA Players Talk About Land of Golden Flowers



some of my "favorite" SEWTA players talking about their love of China, Chinese food

well now I like them a little better

and of course in the first part of the video when they ask have you ever been to China they could not show Kim's response only player that would withdraw from a mandatory SEWTA tournament and Kim thought fries was an example of Chinese food

I've been to Beijing, Shanghai, and Xian. China is awesome, like these players are saying, but it does take getting used to! I accidently ordered a frog dish while there... which was quite interesting.

Have you seen the Terrcotta Warriors!? They were so cool! Also, the Great Wall was very surreal. I've been to China twice,but I hope to go back some day!

It would be very cool for Kim to play there this year. I'd like to see that tournament continue to expand. The Asian swing of the schedule is too short and skimpy in my opinion.

You Chinese should be "disowned" for not liking frogs.

Not really,eating forg or snake in some parts of China is a taboo,you always can see the fierce criticism of eating these animals whic h generally are not considered as human food.
