this sword sat in it’s sheath in a flooded tomb for 2000 years and it’s still sharp and untarnished. scientists say it’s because of the chemical composition and the almost airtight sheath. me? magic. whosoever wields this sword will be blessed with Mandate of Heaven and establish harmony on Earth.

麵包 (MianBao) Mission!
Bread Number Thirteen: 沙琪玛 (Shā Qí Mǎ - Sachima)
Taste: 5/10 (I hate raisins.)
Total Score: 63%
Today’s “bread” is another childhood snack. Sachima is a Chinese pastry that kind of resembles Rice-Crispy Treats. It is made of flour, butter, and rock sugar. Our sachima also had raisins, which I hate. Blech.
The texture is both chewy and crunchy, and the Guangdong version of sachima is super, super sweet.
