Being Chinese in China

I'm now here in Wuxi, China now with my family for the Lunar New Year and will be going back on the 4th of March. Can't wait. Why?

It's because I can only speak very limited Mandarin and my dad is asking me to guide his office worker on how to set up an enterprise network control system! After trying twice, we finally got the system up and running, .... *phew*.... I'm glad I learned how to draw proper flowcharts.

Another thing is everyone will come up to you and start blabbing in Mandarin or Wuxi dialect.... and I would be standing there staring blankly at them. Then when I tell them I don't understand them, they will look at me like I was retarded or something... *sigh*....

Anyway, I also miss my darling alot, who isn't here with me in Wuxi because of her job commitments back in Penang.

Temperatures for the past few days have been chilly (at least for me), at 3 to 10 degrees Centigrade.
