What is upside-down? Why is north always considered up? It is just the opposite of south.

Indonesia will begin its ambitious plan to vaccinate up to 180 million people within a year today, despite clinical trials suggesting the Chinese-made vaccine may only be 60 per cent effective against COVID-19.

On Monday, Indonesia became the first country outside of China to approve the CoronaVac vaccine, which was developed by Sinovac Biotech in Beijing, after its food and drug authority BPOM gave the greenlight for its emergency use.

President Joko Widodo will receive the first dose, a decision designed to instil confidence ahead of the mass vaccination rollout.
The trouble with Chinese vaccines is that an hour after you've had one, you feel like you need another... :tea:

(that might be borderline racist - if so, mea culpa...)

:whisper: It's an old joke, possibly only Australian, which starts from the folklore premise that Chinese food (which I love) doesn't fill you up, so you have to have another plate in an hour or so. It led to jokes about cannibals discussing eating Chinese people:

"quite tasty, but in an hour or so, you need to eat another one..."

My experience with Chinese food has actually been the opposite. Quite filling and satisfying. Over here, we make the joke about American fast food.

Having eaten Chinese food, both from Mings (the biggest fast food place you've probably never heard of) and the fancy fare, I can only say the difference is hilariously American.

jokes about cannibals discussing eating Chinese people:
and the reality in FNQ during the gold rush was they preferred them over stringy white men ...more fat due to oily cooking.
In Japan you can go into two very similar restaurants and get stuffed in one and still hungry in the other.

Japanese food artistic and light on the quantity.
Chinese owner version light on the artistry but generous on the food

same menu item .:coffee:

You must have arrived safely. Good news!

Are the quarantine procedures similar to Canada? (here, arrivees are asked to self-isolate for 14 days)
