On Reverse Culture Shock and Coming Home from China

"The culture shock must have been crazy, eh?"


"Actually," I found myself constanty telling those that asked, "I had more culture shock coming home to Canada than I did going to China." And I meant it.

50 Reasons Why Shenzhen is the World's Best City

Contributions by our blogger Jen Murray, some photos by photographer Anton Kicker.

We don't agree with CNN Travel that Hong Kong is the best city in the world. But Shenzhen? After all Shenzhen is just another mainland city that can never get its English signs right and whose traffic becomes a nightmare everyday from 4:30 to 8. But don't come too soon to conclusions--Shenzhen's unique vibrancy is one that you could only see with your own eyes.

12 Chinese Dishes (That You Should Be Eating Right Now!)

Chinese food in China and Chinese food in the West are like night and day. They could not be more different. I decided to share a little bit of my own experiences with Chinese food when I finally got fed up with people asking me if they had eggrolls and chicken balls in China. (Spoiler alert: they don’t)

There are no buffets, really, in China. When you sit down to the table at a restaurant with a group of people, all of the food is placed in the middle. It is a communal or “family style” way of eating. It is considered sort of a bonding moment between you and your friends or family. When you are going out to eat you might end up eating and drinking for a very long time. The longest time I have spent at a restaurant was probably over three hours. Read more »

13 Things That Are Normal In China (But That Might Seem Weird To You)

When I lived in China there were many things that would probably be considered pretty ridiculous by our standards, but by China standards were and are extremely normal. (TIC or “this is China” comes to mind.) I got used to them pretty quickly, but whenever I tell people who have never travelled to China about some of the things considered normal there, they laugh and joke about how weird or ridiculous that is. So I decided to compile a list. And here it  is:

Art books needed

Hi all,


I am currently trying to build up a collection of art related books and/or magazines for our library at our art centre Da Wang Culture Highland. I was hoping somebody has some suggestions of where I can procure books like this in Shenzhen. Second hand books are fine and they will not be sold from the art centre, just for reference. We don't have much money to spend for this so free or cheap would be ideal. 


Any ideas?
