Starting to miss Finland…

Compared to previous text this is text is less happy and more about complaining. As you all know everything in China is not so good. I won`t start to write about politics, human rights and etc but I will write something (or complain about) what I have experienced on this first month living in China and something about Chinese people.

WHY the hell Internet won`t work probably? I really miss my mokkula so much (you cannot even image how much)! It`s so frustrating to not know when the Internet will work and when it doesn`t work. One reason can be that because I live in dormitory so all the other students use same net. But in some days all the Chinese WebPages work but no foreign pages. In other words reason is maybe in somewhere else.  Off course, it isn`t so big a deal if I cannot check my Facebook profile in every day or listen Spotify all the time but It would be nice to read blogs or news more when I have free (read boring) time.

I went last weekend to Zoo and started to think have I become old or WHY the Zoo was so depressing place. I almost started to cry when I went to `pet zoo` section on firstly I noticed this little dog in one meter  time one meter class box. I saw Pandas but they seemed very depressed inside their box also. There were also reindeers on the concrete section and very strange looking goldfishes (they looked like in some alien film). The nicest and biggest living conditions were in birds’ area (that wouldn’t be my first choose). I think that was my last visit to any Zoo in the world. I want to have my lovely childhood memories about Zoos like Korkeasaari.P4010010


Our Finnish drinking habits are well known even in here (although I have heard this from expats) and it was quite big surprise. I have to say as A FINN WOMEN that I can somehow drink booze nicely and I know my limits quite well but here some Chinese women are crazy drinkers and outlook is not nice. In clubs bathrooms I have seen these skinny, little dressed, high heeled and drunken Chinese women fighting, vomiting, crying and almost passing out. In the other hand I don`t doubt the outcome if these women drink REAL champagne as shots!

Last but not at least I complain about men expats who lives here in Shanghai. WHY THEY ARE SO GOOD LOOKING? Girls, you cannot even image this. I mean seriously good looking men. Off course most of them are also very gentlemen. Finnish boys, although you don’t have same charisma as a French vineyard`s heir, you can become gentlemen also and I will promise that is the right way to get girls’ attention!

Mum, I don`t fall in love with any foreigners I will promise that again! That`s all for now! I miss family and friends but luckily I feel little bit like I am at home because my STRONGBOW cider and some Snören candies from Ikea.
