Share Being Polite and Fake Expectation
2015-4-30 22:20
If you have a Chinese friend, you will often hear them say : "Next time, I will invite you to come over to my place" Most of your Chinese friend will tell you that, but how many really did invite you to come over the next time? One, or two...a few, if you're lucky One day in Chinese Culture class, I asked my teacher about this and she laughed at me "Being polite is a part of common courtesy in China...but it doesn't mean that they will really do it" The next night, I met a ...

I want to share with all of you my favorite Chinese song. This song is a song about love and destiny, how fate bring two people together.

Share The day when I ate a DONKEY...
2014-7-31 23:42
In China I've seen a lot of strange dishes : turtle soup, fried silkworm, deep-friend snake skin, dog stew etc etc but I'm afraid to try them. Some disgust me, and the other I just can't muster enough courage to try a bite. But when I'm studying in Shijiazhuang last year, I finally had a chance to try the local "special dish" : Donkey Meat (驴肉). It was a cold winter afternoon, just a few days after Chinese New Year, and everything was closed. Me and my Ukrainian roommate, Max, h ...

Share Euphemism in Chinese Language
2014-5-29 22:10
Even though we are not Chinese, but there are some basic things we should know if we're going to live in China. One of the most important things is common courtesy or manners. Of course most of you maybe already know the basic courtesy such as presenting business card with both hands, stand when you are going to shake hands, etc etc. As a student who's studying Chinese language, I want to share with you some common courtesy in terms of language. When you first start studying Chinese ...

I am interested in all forms of perception, of seeing through the eyes of another. I love the rain, and colours your eyes change with the sunset behind you. Randomness flows through my veins, as does a sense of self-discovery. I\'m curious in finding where I fit into the grand scheme of life. I\'m just interested in finding someone who wants to enjoy the ride with me.
