For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community.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 The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date.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.

Possibly a naive question but still I'll ask it.What if someone, a Chinese person, invites you to eat out and you're too nervous to do so because of the cooking oil concern?Continue

What city, and country are you from originally?
What are you doing/plans here?
ESL teacher
A little something about yourself - hobbies, interests, favorites, goals, etc
I like to travel though I haven't travelled a lot. I like to learn about other cultures and I would like to use my qualifications to teach English overseas. I've been on an international penpal site since mid-2009. And from a penpal's list of quotes I'd like to share this one, by Dina Mulock:

"Oh the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are -- chaff and grain together -- certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with the breath of kindness blow the rest away."
