#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’.

This is my face about 90% of the time while living abroad 😜

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!
