Nǐ hǎo! 你好 (Hello!)

Huān yíng, huān yíng! 欢迎, 欢迎! (Welcome, welcome!) 😀

Once upon a time, a banana went to China.

What’s a “banana”? Colloquially, a “banana” refers to a Chinese person who cannot speak Chinese, whether it’s Mandarin (the Beijing dialect) or Chinese dialects (Hokkien, Cantonese, Hakka, Hainan etc).

“A Banana in China” is born when I felt that our food, shopping and travel adventures in China needed its own space.

What will you find here?

You will find shopping blogs about my search for XL-sized swimsuits, winter clothing, summer sandals, messenger bags and clothes for my kids.

You will also find blogs on book reviews, homeschooling in English, how to shop for fresh food and how to prepare healthy Chinese food. ^_^

 Yup. In reality, I spend spend most of my time pretending that I am a fashion blogger.
