Sweet Chilli Water?[edit]

Can anyone confirm whether this is true: "In Malaysia, however, the most popular kind is served in hot and sweet chilli water, with some customers preferring to buy only the chilli water as it is believed to contain medicinal properties." I'm from KL, Malaysia and have never seen or heard anyone eating Douhua with chili water. --Usws (talk) 13:30, 16 October 2013 (UTC)

I don't see why Instantnood was banned from this page when Alanmak keeps insisting on inserting redundant words. Just to be clear, I have never touched this page before. The only place I have ever seen "Cantonese Chinese" is on Wikipedia. I thought that WP wasn't supposed to reflect popular usage not tell people what to use? How is just saying "Cantonese" POV? 218.102.221.163 17:30, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Agree. It's just odd to say "Mandarin Chinese" instead of "Mandarin". It's a matter of linguistics plus common usage, after all. -- Jerry Crimson Mann 08:52, 27 April 2006 (UTC)


The information on this page is wrong,or at least is misleading .. annin dofu (or tofu or tohu) has nothing to do with tofu the soya product. annin dofu is a sweet jelly made of agar agar, almond powder and milk. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.103.133.140 (talk) 18:07, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Charles V SPOOF[edit]

Someone is propagating a joke article from Amazon. The book is real, but I doubt the reference actually says anything about "soybeans". Please check the review for the reference at: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Charles-Dynast-Defender-1500-58-History/dp/034053558X The "reviewer" states that "Charles V was very fond of soybean pudding". Also that "Charles V FOUGHT SUPERMAN". This is an obvious spoof and just because a reference is quoted doesn't make it in any way legitimate. Will someone who has access to a copy of the reference please verify whether there is or ISN'T content on soybean pudding???? Then kindly remove the item if it does not. Thanks — Preceding unsigned comment added by Pmarshal (talkcontribs) 15:28, 10 November 2011 (UTC)

I have a copy of the book, and it does indeed reference soybean pudding in the book as mentioned in the article. Having researched the author, it seems that he is a teacher at Scarborough Sixth Form College, so it is highly likely that it is a former student who wrote the review. Being a teacher myself, you wouldn't believe the stuff that's posted on the internet about me. And, by the way, the book doesn't reference Superman or anything else mentioned in the review. 150.237.85.229 (talk) 17:35, 15 November 2011 (UTC)
The article here on soybeans states that soybeans were introduced to Europe in the 18th century. Given the time-frame of Charles V life, as well as the history of the contributions of the IP address of the person who added the information, I think there is justification for removal of this fact. 76.220.42.13 (talk) 04:17, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
The reference to the 18th century on the soybean article is unreferenced, in a section full of citation needed tags. I wouldn't delete the information solely based on that. 86.148.235.107 (talk) 22:51, 26 January 2012 (UTC)
Since when an online review (can be done by anyone in the net, even a hoax revieer) can be treated as reference? It is completely a buls**t. Undo this at once. Gunkarta (talk) 20:39, 6 February 2012 (UTC)
The book is the reference, not the spoof review. The book is a solid source. 86.180.114.60 (talk) 16:40, 25 February 2012 (UTC)
Removed as a hoax. There is no such information in that book. Any attempt to reinsert it will be treated as disruptive. --Saddhiyama (talk) 19:24, 29 April 2012 (UTC)
