Dianxi Xiaoge and Dawang Crossing River

Dianxi Xiaoge: Wild Cilantro and Mints

  • by

Dianxi Xiaoge took Dawang with her to pick some wild cilantro and mints. On their way, Dawang spotted some cattle from a neighboring village and started chasing them. Holding the camera, Dianxi started chasing after Dawang. I would’ve loved to see that footage.

After scaring off the herd, Dawang remembered he wasn’t a wolf after all, and followed Dianxi to the river.

Treetop Vegetable and an Angry Husky

  • by

In this video Dianxi Xiaoge showed us a unique veggie called Treetop Vegetable, and cooked a few dishes with it. But the real star today is Dawang. Because it was getting pretty hot, Xiaoge didn’t bring Dawang along on her way to the mountains. Oh boy, what a mistake! First, Dawang almost knocked down Xiaoge’s cousin, trying to go with Xiaoge. When that failed, Dawang got angry, and stayed angry,… Read More »Treetop Vegetable and an Angry Husky

Dianxi Xiaoge: Jelly and Snacks from Sour Fruits

  • by

In this video Dianxi Xiaoge picked fresh wild fruits, including sour plums and olives, and made a variety of snacks. All of the fruits seem pretty sour – by imagination – so she adds lots of sugar to “neutralize” the sourness. The final products look quite delicious.

  • by

China is being overwhelmed by the CoronaVirus Outbreak. It has reached nearly every corner of the country, as well as many parts of the world. Outside China, life is normal. But inside the mainland, literally everything is put on hold, in order to contain the new virus. Schools remain shut, factories cannot open, and many cities are effectively in lock-down mode. I’m glad Xiaoge is still posting new videos. It’s… Read More »Dianxi Xiaoge: A Dish for VIP Guests from Yi Ethnics Group

Dianxi Xiaoge New Year Eve Family Dinner – Special 2020 Edition

  • by

Dianxi Xiaoge lives in a remote village in Yunnan Province. So even though China is bracing for the deadly outbreak of #CoronaVirus, her mountainous hometown remains a safe haven……for now. I say this because many villagers actually work in the cities, and they all return home for Chinese New Year. There’s no guarantee the 2019-nCoV virus won’t reach “isolated” parts of China. Wuhan, the epicenter of this disaster, is a… Read More »Dianxi Xiaoge New Year Eve Family Dinner – Special 2020 Edition
