Furro the #Burro

22 Aug

Say hi to Furro the #Burro! 😊 This cute donkey was selling melons on the #street. (In a university park, in a city with millions of people – a #random donkey. I love #lifeinChina ❀)

And who could say no to that adorable guy? So sweet!!

#Burger with Hair! πŸ‘¨ Mmm mmm Good!

20 Aug

Went to #KFC and Michael tried this new #chicken ‘burger’ they are selling. The bread is just Food coloring. The stuff that looks like hair on top we THINK is fried pulled chicken? – He said it just tasted weird 😜 Unfortunately, they put the Mayo on TOP of the bun to hold on the fried stuff, so eating it was hilarious. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜œπŸ˜‚πŸ˜œ Yum!

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 πŸ˜‚ Finally (after deliberation) they officially agreed to just write it on the pass. 😜

International Business at its best! We’ve got English, Russian, German/Dutch, Spanish, Italian. . . But sadly for a Chinese website, no #Chinese!

#TeachingLols ~ That’s a lot of Kids!

6 Apr

So I’m working with my international students (Mongolia, Indonesia, and India) and asked what they did this summer.
One girl goes off because she expected to have a vacation, but got stuck working. She starts listing all of her chores, complaining, and the other students are just nodding along commiserating.
She finally gets to the part where she had to babysit her siblings and cousins. The kids are like “yep, yep” right up until she goes “So, I just want to say that I’ve learned from this summer. I mean, I am totally not going to have more than 5 kids. That’s just more than enough.” Said completely sincerely with no inflection or emphasis at all. Β You could see them start to nod again, stop, look at one another and turn in unison to stare at her. One girl goes “FIVE kids” with eyes real big. She goes “Yeah! I mean, I think stopping there is plenty.” They stare some more. I crack up secretly on the inside.
This in the country where 2 kids is only just now allowed universally and is still pretty rare in the cities.Β
