During my second week in the CSR-office my job mainly was to revise and correct a report of a company that already meets up to the standards required by the Responsible Supply Chain Association. At the moment there aren’t that many people in the office due to vacation or business trips. Usually we are 9 people including me but at peak times last week there were about 3 persons in the office 😉
On Friday I invited a few friends over to my apartment in order to have a little warming-up session before finally going out in the San Li Tun area (Shooters, Komoko) again. Saturday for me was very suitable for a little clothes shopping and having a suit and a few shirts done at the taylor of my trust. In the evening Fan (a guy from work) took Alex (a Swedish guy we happened to meet coincidently) and me to a really nice hot pot restaurant (Dolarshop). Following that we had a few cold beers in Hou Hai, as last weekend. On Sunday I eagerly wanted to do some sight-seeing. Therefore I headed towards the spot I liked most in Beijing when I was here for the first time last year – Tian Tan. It suddenly started to pour so heavily made me not enjoy the special sight that much. That’s why I’m referring to a former entry in the golden week, where I had more luck with the weather and could take better pics.
For me it’s quite nice to see the reminiscence and what a great time we had at our golden-week stay in Oct. 2008.
To conclude, just a little traditional cliché about Chinese habits (some of you China experienced guys may have already stumbled across…): 你吃了吗？(Did you eat already? Have you eaten so far?) is more or less replacing the good old 你好 (ni hao, hello) or 早上好 (good morning) in lunch or breakfast time. It’s rather almost a rhetorical question, puts further emphasis on the eating habits and the importance Chinese people attach to it.
