First, it's good to see you .... well, see you uploading anyway. I hope for the best in your personal life; I do understand the concept and need for mental health breaks. Take care of yourself.
I do want to say about the comic that I noticed how the conversation turned from really serious to less so. I agree with Javiera's feeling that he was trying to be nice and controlling at the same time. Granted, people can make mistakes while trying to be nice and I'm sure it happens when someone is trying to make a change for the better but I somehow doubt that Marco is investing any form of honest effort.
At the same time, I also agree with Darren's assessment of sweet and sour chicken ...
That having been said, I did have some authentic Cambodian meals for a few years. Not once did I ever see chicken served in those meals. Bean sprouts and other vegetables aplenty, but not chicken.
