TITLE: VALENTINE'S PANIC
LOCATION: HONGCHANG HEAVY INDUSTRIES
MISSION: DO SOME TRANSLATING
DATE: 2012-02-14

Today I spent the day at Hongchang correcting the first of the two surveys I have made. I translated the questions myself and then had Mrs. Zhang (张睿) help me correct it. She could understand what I had written, no problem, but let us just say that her version was a lot more elegant than mine. The lunch was as always not that exiting, and to compensate we had a whole bunch of the cookies that Wu Yang's (吴洋) mom brought him from Beijing. It was Valentine's day today, but it is a festival that few Chinese people care for, something that Wang Yang (王阳) kept mentioning (as an excuse to why he had not prepared anything special for his wife). But just before it was time to go home he got cold feet and stole a bamboo sprout from the office next door, reasoning that this way he would at least not come home empty-handed. After having being soundly ridiculed by the rest of us, he added a flower from one of the cacti in our windows. We'll have to wait until tomorrow to see what effect his chivalry had on his wife.
