A new day, a new adventure =) When we entered the classroom this morning, there was a table full of food. There were candies (also durian flavored ;D), cookies, chips and even coffee and sponge cake...albeit with a questionable topping. Are you curious? It was seaweed. Yep, you read that right. Sponge cake with seaweed. Of course, I jumped at the chance to try it, but I have to admit that I prefer to stick to normal sponge cake. The seaweed had quite a strong taste of its own, which didn't go well with the sweet cake. It wasn't my cup of tea, but tastes differ.

Creating the dating-questionnaire

Today we started collecting data for our project. And what's the quickest way to collect data? Through surveys! So we had to come up with questions on the topic of "dating". However, it was important not to be too intrusive. We were very worried that people here in China would otherwise be reserved and wouldn't want to answer the questions. In Asian culture, people are still rather cautious when it comes to dating and disability. Of course, in order to involve even more people, we also created an online survey so that we could reach family and friends in Germany. As a result, we spent the whole day creating a questionnaire.

Street food is the best way to enjoy the culture

Highly concentrated on the task at hand, time passed so quickly that it was already evening. As always, we explored the area until we found an appealing restaurant. I myself discovered a street vendor selling fried rice and fried noodles. And this turned out to be my dinner for the day: fried rice. I think the best place to find authentic local food is on the streets. Street food is simply cheap, good and characteristic of its country. Plus, it's always fun to watch people cooking.

Three things I learned and discovered today:

1) Chinese people eat sponge cake with seaweed
2) Chinese society is getting more amenable
3) Streetfood is very delicious
