"Shanghainese people always use sugar when they cook" damn right they always do 🤣

Sune says:

3:38 seeing this guy's zest for life at that age is truly GOALS…that's how I wanna be when I hit his age.
also, I think the choice in music is dope — it contrasts with what's expected for sure, but it also portrays the food in an aesthetic light that I think fits 🙂

Someone in the crowd says:
