Come and hear from longtime Lantau resident Cecilie Gamst Berg as she ploughs through the non-stop surreal-fest that is today’s China, stopping occasionally to ruminate about the travails of trying to make Cantonese a world language, and how the Chinese have invented a new English: Manglish.
You’ll find answers to everything you wanted to know about China, such as:
What does “the slippery are very crafty” really mean?
What’s the etiquette for hitch-hiking in really small cars?
And what’s the best way to gatecrash a ketamine party?
Cecilie will show you how China is not only the most happening place on Earth, but also the most fun.
