Experience

Me and my roommate from Belgium lived at the dormitory building on the celestica factory together with our colleagues. After work we would always go with our colleagues to a restaurant nearby for dinner. Chinese food is very varied but formulaic, so it was always either noodles or some dishes with rice. We played football with our colleagues every Thursday and would, whenever they felt like it, go swimming or play basketball. Dongguan itself doesn't have alot to offer, but it's part of the Pearl river delta so it was easy for us to go to Shenzhen or Guangzhou in the weekends. So we travelled to these and other cities every weekend.

Discover

I discovered that the Chinese have a unique culture and history, and that knowing about it is important for understanding them.
