    Darling I will never trade my culture for another culture hell to the nope... well i like the free education system but the weather is crap
    I like how my parents makes us keep parts of our culture, they aren’t traditional Chinese well at east I don’t see them as traditional.

    I still celebrate the Chinese New Year, mid autum festival and some other occasions

    I think instead of trading adapting or taking in some of the British culture is nice too

    Not that good even though I went to Chinese school on Sunday’s and took the exam at gcse and got an A*. I’m able to listen/understand basic conversation and maybe a little bit more in mandarin. Can barely speak it and when I do it’s bad pronounciation I have the foreigners speaking Chinese accent like the ones you see on Chinese dramas so f*cking bad hahah

    Can read books/novels in simplified. Traditional is way to hard T_T

    I can also type in pinyin, I’m actually really good at this.

    Writing is not that good just the basics.

    My Cantonese is pretty good, I can hold everyday conversations since my parents speak it to us and TVB HK dramas. A lot of stephen chow movies.
    Learn more Chinese. It only benefits you in the future. Don't be a banana.

    This is something that happens to many who were born in a different country but were raised in the UK.

    I was born in Romania but raised in the UK and.... I am pretty rubbish at speaking Romanian.

    Why do Chinese people love taking pictures? When I was in China, I'd always get asked to take a picture with them. It happened in the UK also.

    I wish I knew too but I think it’s mainly to share to their friends and family. My cousin takes photos of everything literally. She would stand and pose i front of buildings or statues and/or ask me totake a picture of her pretending to not notice. She love staking pictures of food too. She then posts it on wechat (they say it’s a chinese Facebook)

    I don’t have any friends on it just family, I only keep it to communicate with them and it’s actually quite easy to use. Was your app in English?
