First Meal

“My first recollection of a good Canadian meal came In the form of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes served in a mini-box. Never having seen this before, I wondered in amazement if everyone in Canada ate out of little one-meal boxes!”

When Li Lei arrived from Beijing, China in 2002 she was equally mystified, “I remember they, they took me to a Chinese restaurant here as my first meal here and I, I was complaining about the food, you know the Chinese food here too, I said what, you know that's not authentic Chinese food and they told me you need to get used to it.”
