For Men

Well #gentlemen you’ll be glad to know know that during your prgnant surgery, your lips will be nicely moisturized!!

Seriously, what words went into the translator that these came out?

Taste Buds Beware!

#Confession – Most of my phone gallery are pictures of random Chinese things I need to translate to save myself. E.g. to know the difference between microspicy and ‘it’s too spicy’ 😂😂😂

What’s Missing?

😃Did you know 4 is an unlucky number in many Asian countries – especially those with #linguistic influence from #China. This is because 4 has a similar pronunciation as the word ‘death’.

You can see this #hotel in South Korea skipped putting in a 4th floor! 😅.

This is my face about 90% of the time while living abroad 😜
Dictionaries? ✅ (4)

Maps? ✅ (2)

Chinese App? ✅ (6 and counting)

Students Phone Numbers for Emergencies? ✅ 

Sadness, #Chinese still is Such a complex #language!  Even after 4 years!

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 😂

New #Friends!

Awww!  Made some new friends! #可爱! 

In Chinese, ‘ke ai’ is Cute!  Like these cuties!

Look Familiar?

Not to be confused for ‘#Ritz’ crackers 😜  These are the Fooky Rizl’s. 😂

#Rose Tea – The #Herbs of China

However despite my mistaken belief that they loved #EnglishTea , I have since learned that the actually prefer #herbal teas.  This box for sal at the local supermarket is full of #roses for #rosetea. They also like #lavender tea, #chamomile, #jasmine, and others.  Makes the #cafe very fragrant!

The #Chinese #Dollhouse ðŸ˜‚

​I’ve been sick today so I was playing on Taobao and found these adorable/hilarious dollhouse items. If You’ve ever lived in China you’d know how accurate these images are 😂 Down to the cheap Chinese prngle alternatives (they look exactly like that!), cooke tins, and Green tea Oreo knockoffs 😄. I’ve been Coke Zero free for more than a month, but those bottles are so funny.  And the fanta soda.  ðŸ˜‚

Liquor for a dollhouse! 😂

Cheers!

Somehow my order for one soda (yi kele zhong) and two coffees (er cafe) became one soda, two coffees, and three lemon teas (san limon cha). 😓 There’s only two of us at the table. 😜 Guess it’s time to drink up!🍻
