I'm back! ♥
Well technically, I was back two days ago. But anyways, this is the first time I've posted since I left for China sixteen days ago. Yay~
|I look so derpy. ♥|
For those wondering what I was doing in Cheena, I was at a summer camp with 30 other Aucklanders! We were in China for two weeks and in the first four days, we went around sight-seeing in Beijing. Then we left to another province called Jilin and spent the rest of our time there hehehe.
Basically while we were there, we went sight-seeing, shopping, learning about China and Chinese culture while trying to put what we knew to use. I'm not sure about the others but for me, speaking Mandarin was quite confusing. Almost everything I learnt in 1½ years was practically useless because...
1. Everyone spoke really fast.
2. Everyone spoke with an accent.
3. Everyone spoke really casually.
Not to mention, everyone used words that I didn't know - and they expected me to understand cause I'm Chinese. *Groans* I regret quitting Chinese lessons when I was little. When I'm a parent, I'll force my children to learn Mandarin.
But anyways, time for some photos from the trip! Ugh. I still haven't finished blogging about my trip to America.

I'll post more about my trip later hehehe.
Lots of Love,
