Wuxi China Expatdomites are going crazy for the new Lemon Meragne Pies now available in Wuxi at Mulroney’s Canadian Bakeries in Wuxi. Many are dancing in the street to celebrate the introduction of lemon meragne pies, which are only 10 rmb with a small coffee, to the Mulroney’s breakfast menu
Friday morning, at the Mulroney’s at the corner of Xueqian and Zhongshan Roads, ten thousand Wuxi Expats could be seen waiting in line to get the Canadian delicacy, which, more than being food, is seen a symbol of the human aspiration for dessert and decency. Waiting to buy the lemon meragne pies, the Expats were in a jubilant mood as they formed a slowly moving and dancing conga line waiting to be served. The fortunate Wuxi Expats who had places in front of the line and were able to buy and consume their lemon meragne pies first, could be afterwards seen performing the Prisyadaka dance arm-in-arm with those who had also finished their lemon meragne pies.
Many Expats, when asked about their jubilation, said it was great to get lemon meragne pies at very affordable price in Wuxi. One Expat, Duston Short, the Midget Sumo Wrestling champion of the WCE, said he hadn’t had a lemon meragne pie in years. Andis Kaulins, the English Teacher who is not be confused with the Andis Kaulins who is the President of the Wuxi Expat Rifle Association and the Andis Kaulins is who the President of the Wuxi China Expatdom Elite Expat Association, told the WCE Blog that he remembered there was a place serving pies seven years in the WCE. "Its menu started out with western-style pies but quickly evolved into unimaginable recipes appealing to local tastes before it finally went out of business. Since then, the Wuxi China Expatdom has been a desert when it comes to lemon meragne pies. I can understand the jubilation that long-time Wuxi Expats feel at seeing lemon meragne pies on the Mulroney’s menu!" said ET Kaulins.
Other Expats said it was wonderful to see food, symbolic of the human aspiration for decency and dessert, being served in the Expatdom. Wuxi China Expat philosopher Henri Raulston Hume told the WCE Blog that the lemon meragne pies were a "metaphysical revelation" to him and that he would order four lemon meragne pies the next time he went to Mulroney’s.
