There they just call it “food.”

Wandering through the Cantonese opera exhibit at the Hong Kong Heritage Museum this afternoon, we came across a display of traditional Chinese musical instruments.

Check out this vitrine. It has various kinds of lutes and other stringed instruments, and also… a saxophone. Swingin’!

Anyway, remember that episode of Friends where Ross is in love with a Chinese-American woman who’s moving to China, and he’s wondering whether to go with her or not, and Joey tells him “Forget about Rachel. Go to China, eat Chinese food,” and then Chandler says “Of course, there they just call it ‘food'”?

Well, behold what drummers would call a “China cymbal.”
