Our fifth meeting with Ruihai was all about shopping! What would be more perfect subject for a girl! We were comparing about Finnish and Chinese online shopping culture. I had read that the online commerce is a fast growing business in China. Ruihai told that it is true and showed me couple of websites from where people buy different products.
I think the biggest difference between Chinese and Finnish online shopping is that Chinese people buy lots of food online. This is not that common in Finland. Or at least none of the people I know have used Internet to order food.
While watching a Chinese online grocery store we started to talk about different foods and food products. That gave us a new topic for the sixth meeting! Let’s talk about food!
