For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

The Lantern Festival is a Chinese festival celebrated on the fifteenth day of the first month in the lunisolar year in the lunar calendar marking the last day of the lunar New Year celebration.
So as is customary for me around this time of year, I like to organize a big dinner for everyone to get together and celebrate lanterns festival, but also to meet and make new friends. This year has been a bit shit with the ban on extensive use of fireworks throughout China's inner city areas. So this year I propose to go to Goose Island in the south of the city. I have reserved 3 large tables in one giant room where we can enjoy the great food and festivities. Then I want to take advantage of the fact that they will allow us to let off our fireworks in their grounds, so we could have our own firework display. I am prepared to hike it out to the middle of no where to buy them, but if you want some, then you have to "chip in".
After what I hope to be a lovely little firework display, we will make our way to the 3 monkeys pub, to receive a complimentary free drink and carry on the fun and frolics into the night. Please, this is a RSVP event, and if you want fireworks then you must let me know before the 3rd of March either by Telephone: 18643069217 or Wechat: rik18643069217
The cost of the dinner will be shared equally between all who attend.It is a very reasonably priced restaurant so don't worry about ludicrously expensive food bills. We have ordered lots of different dishes too, so is also suitable for vegetarians.All drinks will be paid by yourself.
