That was the first meeting I met Julia, Paapi and XiaoFeng, and surprisingly, there is another girl from China who name Mengmeng are my friend who stay in the same area with me! 🙂 So yeah, Julia and Paapi are Finnish and Xiao Feng and Mengmeng are from China and myself Voon, I am from Malaysia. 🙂
That was a raining and freaking cold night but the girls make me feel warm and sweet. They are friendly, talkative, nice and welcoming. We talked and laugh, eat and talk, talk and laugh again. That was a pretty night. We share our countries’ background, learned some new words from the menu (exchange in Finnish & Chinese), eg: Fish –> Kala –> 鱼 or Chicken –> Kana –> 鸡。This meeting wasn’t so formal and official but it’s more like the first meeting and get the chance to know each others.
We also had our discussion about our group ‘theme’ or some kind like ‘target’, instead of being like ‘lectures exchange’ but we are more to ‘culture exchange’ and based on Julia and Paapi words, they will prefer to let us experiences more about the real Finnish Culture, so yeah we plan to have meeting like movie, trips, shopping, sauna or some vacation to some where around Finland! x) Can’t wait for that! —Voon
