Sometime it is hard to adjust myself between two cultural systems, Jet setting back and forth between East and West. Is not good or bad, it’s just different!
有时候我发现很难在两种文化体系间自我调整,在东西模式间来回转换。倒也谈不上是好是坏,只是完全不同!
I enjoy the economic growth of China! I shop on Tao Bao or Tian Mao all the time and bought almost everything online in China.  The merchandises will deliver on the second day, which is amazing! However, I feel something is missing in a cosmopolitan city like Shanghai.  I feel living in a cosmopolitan is exciting but hyper and is full of chemicals in daily life. There is a whisper in my mind. We need organic life that is a small butterfly echoing in my heart.
我为中国的经济快速发展而心悦!我经常在淘宝或天猫上买东西,在国内的时候几乎没什么东西不能在网上搞定。商家第二天就会送货上门,简直太棒了!然而,这还是让我觉得在上海这样的大都市里好像缺了点什么,我感到这样的生活节奏令人激动但却又太过快速,而且充斥着太多的化学元素。
There is a whisper in my mind. We need organic life that is a small butterfly echoing in my heart.
我心中始终有一个声音在召唤着我: 我们需要有机的生活!这像是一只小蝴蝶在我心中回荡撞击。
Organic life is what we need, something you cannot shop and buy on Tao Bao. Forget Tao Bao!
我们需要有机的生活,一些我们在淘宝上买不到的东西才是我们缺少的。
