Jill and I decided we want to eat more healthily and really wanted a Vitamix.
We’ve been vegetarians for 5 months now and wanted to take the next step.
I have a Vitamix back home, sitting and waiting for me, at my friend Sue’s house.
However, it weighs a ton and it is too expensive to ship over to China.
Therefore, we asked our friends Martin and Kenn, at The Local, and they suggested we buy the same ones they just bought a few days ago.
So, they ordered it for us and we received our new Fakeamix blender a few days ago.
It is almost exactly like the Vitamix I had at home and it works wonderfully.
It also only cost about 100 USD, which is a nice savings, and is quite easy to use, clean, and store when we don’t need it out on the counters.
Honestly, it is the little things, like having good friends order a blender for us, that make being an expatriate so much more enjoyable and easy.
Our Fakeamix is made by Hyundai and is actually more quiet than my real Vitamix.
This may be because the engine isn’t as powerful but it seems to do just fine for what we need as we mostly make green smoothies with it and it blends them up perfectly.
