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 🇨🇳 you need: Blood Analysis, Urinary Analysis, X-Rays, Ultrasound, ECG/EKG, and Blood Pressure.
The X-Rays 📷 are competely #Topless with other people (men included) waiting in the room 😱 for their turn – no protection. 😓 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! 😂
This is why #Chinese is so confusing for the #waijiao (foreigners) – the same character can mean cloudy, moon, feminine, a last name, or genitalia 😂
Lol – explaining MRTS and upper level economics theories to a student via emoji and wechat messenger. 😂
The ways we adapt to the ESL academic class!
You know, it says #rainbow but for some strange reason I’m seeing #cow . . . . On a t-shirt for #girls Hmmmm 😂 Life in #China means living with random #words on your #clothes 😜
😂 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 😄
Ooh. . . . Seaweed Chips! 😂 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
Cooking is tragic work!! Grating onions today, left me in tears. 😭😂
