#Cheese Erasers! 😂

11 Jul

Haha! My Uncle used to own a #Cheese plant – this picture is for him.  He is the totally awesomest dude ever! Miss you!  And Everyone who has lived in China and knows the tragedy that is life without cheese!

#Travel Woes 

24 Jun

It’s official – my name is too long for China 😭 They took my boarding pass away and had to get special approval for my name 😂 Finally (after deliberation) they officially agreed to just write it on the pass. 😜

So #Old

20 Jun

My students have been taking graduate pictures. 📷 🎓 They keep talking about how ‘old they are’ now – they’re like 19-24. 😱 Horrible I know. . .  I’m 27! They’re aging me folks! If they’re ‘old’ – I’m one step out of the grave 👻

#Chinese Language Fun

17 Jun

This is why #Chinese is so confusing for the #waijiao (foreigners) – the same character can mean cloudy, moon, feminine, a last name, or genitalia 😂

#Foodie! Stewed Iron Eggs

29 May

​Stewed Iron Eggs – everypne’s favorite food! It even comes #SPICED! As my ESL students say – ‘have a try!’

Notice the star #anise on the picture (tastes like licorice – often poisonous here in #China since the legit anise stars go to theraflu factories).  Can only imagine that added to stewed egg flavor!

#Fire Drill – #China Style!

20 May

#Fire drill! #China style! 📣 Because we take your security seriously – we use real #smoke bombs to stink the building up, train you to go through usually locked doors, and ask that you guess when a fire starts because we have no smoke alarms. But you know, security!  At least now maybe they’ll stop padlocking all the outside doors at night 😂

#Fashion Baby!

14 May

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 😜

#KoreanBBQ

9 May

😂 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 😄

#Chinese Peanuts

9 Apr

​Black Peanuts😣. . . . seems suspicious 😂

Chinese #IceCream – you can have mine :p

25 Feb

The #Chinese concept of #icecream and my idea of a delicious treat are not the same 😂 This was a Chinese popsicle my student likes – green tea with a red bean filling.  Somehow not quite the same as good old fashioned Chocolate 😜
