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 😂

​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.  😂

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!🍻

Ba Si

Ba Si is a delicious real Chinese dish made from fruits, baked potato, or sweet potato – battered and then covered in a sweet sugary- caramel like sauce that hardens into a candy-glaze.  My personal favorite!
