My favourite restaurant ist "Fuchshof Restaurant" in Ludwigsburg, Germany. I always drink there fizzy water. My family and I eat there Black Burger. It's a kind of Cheese Burger with black burn. Flammkuchen (in German). It's a kind of pizza with bacon and cream cheese. But Flammkuchen is more thin and crispy than pizza. rib with potatoes. The meat is really tasty! And for dessert we eat ice cream in the summer. I love this restaurant! It's just a little bit far from our house, so we don't often eat there.

There are so many types of food but my favorite one is Japanese Sushi. I love the wonderful taste of rice, fresh taste of seaweed, great taste of salmon. Totally, sushis are so delicious at all! I haven't been to Japan before, and I'm not Japanese. But I have tried sushi once, and its taste is very memorable...

My favourite restaurant is BCHILL in Thailand. And I really excited because I almost go to Thailand again. Perhaps I ate cheese sticks, bacon sausages, and drank blue lemonade. It was great and unbelievable, I met BamBam, how handsome he is. He's tall and thin with the long legs, his legs just like girl's legs. I can wait for the time I go there one more time and I really want to meet BamBam again. Hope you can realize me. : ) _____________________________________________________ LOVE YOU AND BCHILL FOREVER, BAMBAM : >
