Food habits are known as being one of the most complex aspects of human behavior, which makes them even more important to understand when moving abroad. As you adjust to a new culture, job, language and lifestyle you’ll undoubtedly feel like your entire body is out of whack. Cultivating a routine will help, while trying to adjust to the Chinese eating schedule as quickly as possible will also assit your body in finding its rhythm sooner rather than later.

Show the process

If you are taking pictures of something you cooked yourself, you can try making your photos more dynamic by showing the process (e.g. some maple syrup being poured on

不再怕寒冷,喝啤酒让自己感到温暖

You might ask yourself if it is a right choice to keep drinking beer while the outside temperature goes down. The answer is YES! Beer lovers can breathe freely - winter is not a reson for you to stop enjoying the beer. The only advice - go dark. Dark beers taste same good cold or warm. Sitting at home in your cosy chair or hanging out with the friends at the bar - there is nothing better than to feel how beer fills your body with warm.

可能你会问自己:“外面温度越来越低,继续喝啤酒是否有理的选择?”回答就!啤酒爱好者会自由呼吸 - 冬天不是能让你停止喝啤酒的原因。我们只有一个建议 - 选黑啤酒。黑啤酒不管冷或热风味都丰富。没有比感到啤酒让你身体温暖的感觉更好。

 

 

A lot of breweries and organizers are holding beer festivals during these chilli days. One might say that there is no fun in that, but we strongly disagree. The beer is flowing and there is usually some kind of heat source for beer lovers to gather around and chat.

很多啤酒厂和组织者在寒冷天气会举行啤酒节。有人可以说冬天参加啤酒节没有什么好玩,可是我们完全不同意。啤酒节上啤酒不限,一般有热源,这样所有的人会聚在一起聊天。
