sushi is what we usually translate as 'shousi' into chinese. it is not my cup of tea, but I am really attracted by its beauty. as many other japanese food, it is so elaborate. it is uauslly carefully wrapped in the seaweed or the green leaves and then be put into the black and red trays. when it is in front of you, you will think it is a piece of art with fabulous color and shape.
hamburg dumpling is the translation of chinese 'baozi' which I saw in one magzine. it also have some beauty. when in restaurant, they are often served in the white traditional china plate which is with decorated blue lines. if they have been well made, they should be translucent. usually I cannot resist the temptation at the sight of them.
sushi and the hamburg dumpling really have something in common. they are both wrapped in something and when you begin to eat you actually don't know what is inside. they are mysterious and shy and are just like their people.
pizza is the popular food in north america. it is sort of different from sushi and hamburg dumpling. its topping is just on the top of the bread and you can see all of them before you eat. it is just like the american people, open and hilarious.
like the difference of the food, the oriental aesthetics is quite different from the american aesthetics. but you have your choice. you can choose your favorite. as for me the oriental aesthetics is always my favorite. I prefer the japanese films , though the hollywood films are always grand and expensive. I like the chinese traditional paintings though sometime I will hang the modern american paintings on my wall. in my eyes the oriental aesthetics is always the beauty of silence ,mystery and something that words cannot utter.
