Hi, I’m Sunny Jiang, team member of Berkeley Sourcing Group.
I was born in a small city of northern China near to the Bohai sea. It’s a beautiful place to live. It usually snows in the winter. It’s been 9 years since I’ve seen the snow because I haven’t gone back to my hometown in the winter since I left there to work in the South.
I live in Shenzhen now.
It’s a young city, as people always say. It belongs to our young people. There are more than 14 million people that stay in Shenzhen now, most of us are young.
I have a happy family, my husband, my son, my little daughter and I. We also live with my husband’s parents. It may be difficult for you to understand why our Chinese young people will live with parents after we get married. However it is very common. We need help from our parents. We usually don’t trust the baby-sitter too much. We prefer to ask the grandparents to take care of our babies. More over, we have a tradition that the parents should live with their children when they are old. If we refuse to live with our parents, then the relatives and the town fellows will blame that my husband is not a dutiful son. It is a tradition for about 5000 years in China.
My son, Robin, is a primary school student. He is 6 and in Grade one. He says he works pretty well since he only went to school for two weeks. My daughter, Irene, is a very very lovely girl in my mind. I love her so much and sometimes even coddle her. Irene wants nobody else if I am at home. She always asks me to come to her and she will call “Mum” if she can’t see me. So I always get in trouble in the morning when I leave for work.
I’m really happy to know you here. Hope we can discuss everything you are interested in about China. I’ll tell you whatever I know and get an answer to what I don’t know.
