Thanks to the opportunity that Cassie from the ROC has gone, Adeamy asked me the confusion staying in his mind for so many days. And he went,” Benji, Taiwanese look exactly like you guys from China, what is the relationship between Taiwan and China?” Not astounded, I responded, “Taiwan is a part of China. It used to be part of China tons of years ago, but now due to political elements, they claim Taiwan is a nation.” However, he seemed to be more confused, and said “You know what? It’s Okay. I’m from South Sudan.

During my childhood years, I remember reading and watching Korean historical dramas, cartoons, and history books with my younger brother. Being exposed to Korean history at such a young age was the biggest influence on my growing interest in wanting to enter the History field. I am thankful that my father, who has a huge interest in Korean history and who has earned a Bachelor of Arts in Confucian Studies at the oldest Korean university, had the skills to teach both my brother and me how to write and decipher the Hanja texts, which are Chinese characters used before the Korean alphabet system, Hangul. He also taught us how to compare Korean history to both Chinese and Japanese history. I remember reading and watching the creation and developments of different kingdoms

Name：Eric Gonzalez From：USA Occupation：Global Adventurer & Writer Introduction: Eric Gonzalez read Marco Polo’s adventures as a child, which made him curious about the world. Before moving to Guangzhou, he traveled the world as a backpacker, hitchhiking across the world and visiting more than 20 countries, starting from Cambodia, then going through Thailand, to India, Turkey, France, the USA and everything In-between until he finally arrived in China and stopped In Guangzhou, the starting point of the ancient maritime silk road. Stories of the old Silk Road fill my childhood memories: Marco Polo and his adventure from Italy to China and back. Pictures of great ships crossing the oceans and great caravans crossing the world in search of new ideas, new technology, and new goods to trade. Because of these childhood stories, I have always been quite curious about China.
The "diversity" that mentioned by Chu, was not only local elements, but also with global music trend, which formed into a new hybrids style and sculpt the formation of Cantopop. For the local elements, Cantopop is well-known in using its own dialect, Cantonese to compose music. As one of the most influential Chinese language, Cantonese was used for Chinese in the regional areas of China and throughout the South-East Asian courtiers, and even the western countries like Canada, England, the United States and elsewhere. Globalization transmitted the sufficient demand from worldwide to local industry, and hence, singing in Cantonese becomes one of the features of Cantopop. Nevertheless, the lyrics in Cantopop could be mainly divided into two main groups: literature form and colloquial style.
Traveling to China really was the experience of a life time. It has challenged me in more ways than I had thought possible testing my friendships, patience and resilience. Being in China for five weeks has opened my eyes to a different type of world that people live in and made me realise how lucky to live in a country like Australia. Through this experience I have definitely grown as a person through the many different opportunities that I have a chance to participate in while I have been living here and I believe the goals that I set at the start of the program have also helped me. All of the six different goals that I set during the first week revolved around the culture and people of China so that I could get the most out of the program.
His adjustments related to my experience in my 2 years in China; I eventually grew accustomed to the language and culture, listening to popular Chinese music and watching Three Kingdoms. As a student who lived in two countries, I believe that one cannot truly immerse in another’s culture without having living there firsthand. I can read about China online and marvel at images of it, but having to go and experience what the life is like is a different story, since we all share different cultural identities. Although it will not be easy, I will attempt to learn more of my partner’s culture along with sharing my experiences during our next meeting to really immerse ourselves on what each other’s culture is like.

“Whizz. BANG!” It was that time of year again. A time where streets are lit up with bright flamboyant lights, sounds of crackling fireworks can be heard a mile away and the laughter of jovial people fill the air. Unfamiliar faces would be seen around the neighbourhood, as people who live far away from their families go home, as it is a festival of family reunion. To welcome the momentum of Chinese New Year, some of the household prepared a month before the Chinese New Year for decoration and clean house thoroughly.
