Daughter of a Friend’s Friend

I am always excited when I can meet Chinese people that speak enough English ( my Chinese is bu hao) that we can communicate. Sometimes those times of communicating can develop in to relationships and friendships…Relationship is EVERYTHING in China. It’s all about WHO you know. It’s so important in work as well as social circles to develop relationships. Much of the time developing these relationships involves going to restaurants and eating!

This week I had dinner with a friend’s friend’s daughter. Xiaoxu is your typical “small” cute Chinese girl.

She is a year younger than my daughter, both have October birthdays and she is a little cutie. She has finished University in Beijing and is now back home in Shenyang with her family and is in training in her job. She has a sweet smile and her eyes light up and shine when she knows that she can communicate her thoughts and feelings to me in English and I can actually understand her. We speak a lot in English…I am her teacher! Xiaoxu is hoping to improve her English speaking skills and her father is very quick to tell me, ” you MUST correct her”

I am always excited to spend some time “chatting” with Xiaoxu 😀

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
