It’s Just So Pink!

#OMG this Adult Pink tricycle is the CUTEST thing ever!

Learn Something New Every Day!

Learned something #new today! The bullet #train πŸš„ in #China πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³has seats A, B, C, D, and F.  I asked why no E? ❓

According to my #student the trains are copying the #flight system.  It used to be there were six letters . . . So A & F were #window seat, B & E were #middle seats, and C & D were #aisle seats.  Now if there is no middle seat, they skip that letter.  πŸ˜œ  The things I learn!

TMI

Had my annual #physical for the #Chinese residence permit & #Visa! 😷

Managed it alone without a #translator – quite a feat! Look at my bold self go 😜

For #China πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³ you need: Blood Analysis, Urinary Analysis, X-Rays, Ultrasound, ECG/EKG, and Blood Pressure.

 The X-Rays πŸ“· are competely #Topless with other people (men included) waiting in the room 😱 for their turn – no protection. πŸ˜“ The ECG requires baring it all in front of a major, street level window with no curtain and a ferris wheel🎑 right outside❗ Goodbye dignity, hello #crosscultural oversharing! πŸ˜‚
 

Chinese Language Fun

This is why #Chinese is so confusing for the #waijiao (foreigners) – the same character can mean cloudy, moon, feminine, a last name, or genitalia πŸ˜‚

#Emoji Economics!

Lol – explaining MRTS and upper level economics theories to a student via emoji and wechat messenger. πŸ˜‚ 

The ways we adapt to the ESL academic class!

#Fire Drill – #China Style!

#Fire drill! #China style! πŸ“£ Because we take your security seriously – we use real #smoke bombs to stink the building up, train you to go through usually locked doors, and ask that you guess when a fire starts because we have no smoke alarms. But you know, security! Β At least now maybe they’ll stop padlocking all the outside doors at night πŸ˜‚

Fashion Baby!

You know, it says #rainbow but for some strange reason I’m seeing #cow . . . . On a t-shirt for #girls Hmmmm  πŸ˜‚ Life in #China means living with random #words on your #clothes 😜
