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!

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 😜

Korean BBQ sauce!

πŸ˜‚ Travel #Miscommunication – I asked a local importer if he could help me find #BBQ sauce, knowing that #HuntsBBQ is in a lot of places here.  He said ‘Sure!’  A couple days later, they told me my sauce was in and I came to find this – #KoreanBBQ sauce 😜 Also delicious! Just not what I was thinking.  One of the fun parts of travel – We have different views of food vocabulary πŸ˜„

#Foodie Favorite

Ooh. . . . Seaweed Chips!  πŸ˜‚ The perfect junk food.  They have the weirdest Types of chips here – no BBQ or Chedder Sour Cream.  Nope, It’s Seaweed, Green Tea, Squid, Roasted Lamb, Hot Pot, and Yoghurt

Onions are Sadness Personified

Cooking is tragic work!!  Grating onions today, left me in tears.  πŸ˜­πŸ˜‚
