Dude - that's a life changer and absolutely incredible experience.

Man I love century eggs. Never tried turtle sex organ soup though. Did you know what you were having before you had it?

God I am legitimately jealous of your life right now #lifeswap?

I'll try anything twice. Love bizarre foods! Expand your taste buds and live it up!

OW1 - century egg I liked. I knew what I was having but had to play the game. The client wanted to show me his special spot and his favorite food. It was pretty gnarly. Wish we could post pictures on this app.

@OP Hahaha "gnarly" well kudos to you for stomaching it!

Question— do you share your comp with close friends? Me and my roommate have been friends forever and while I don’t really share my specific pay, Im not sure if I should share it with her. When she got promoted she told me her comp tho I didn’t ask. Today I found out I was promoted (🎉) and left that part out. She asked me if I knew what my raise would be and I just told her the % but not the actual amount. Is that unnecessarily secretive? We’re in diff industries too.
