My first post after my blog break over the holidays! I hope everybody had a good time and is ready for the new year!
This is not a fun recap. This month was awful… Don’t read if you expect a positive uplifting post!
What was living with my chinese in-laws like? I also share some random features in a chinese apartment with you. Sadly, the family also made me very mad at an occasion…
The third part of the “After” series from my China trip!
Part 2 of my “After” series! Were my Chinese skills good enough?
This month was quite exciting! I was in China and after a couple days at home I went to visit my family in my hometown.
I’m back! My month in China is over and my uni responsibilities start to slowly creep up on me…
WordPress is working fine so I can publish my first post from China! Luckily, the 12th is today because tomorrow we are going to spend the whole day in the car (12 hours!!) to drive south. So this is the last day in my boyfriend’s hometown.
August was pretty exciting (not always positively…)! My internship ended, I moved back to my boyfriend, had a couple rough days and started the journey to China!
Flights are booked, visa is granted (presents still must be bought…). In a week I will be in China for a whole month and I wanted to share some thoughts with you. When I come back I want to see if these concerns were reasonable or not.
July is over now which means that my three months long intership is over and I can go back home to my boyfriend! Finally!
This one particular character trait runs strong in my surroundings. And I hate it.
[Hold your horses! I don’t want offend anybody! I state my perceptions and experiences! I just know a few Chinese people personally, so my remarks are not representative!]
Here are 5 cultural differences that I witnessed being with a Chinese man for almost four years. Maybe I will write another version of this article focusing on differences in relationships.
1. Sense of Community
I noticed that many Chinese people are rather egoistic when it comes to the environment or empathy.
