The Oscars - 大学的电影晚会

Hi!

Since we’re being such goodie-goodies and we’re studying very hard for our exams right now, we don’t have time to take any pictures for our blog. But, fortunately we still have some pictures, which were too lazy to upload before, so now that laziness pays off (love it when that happens)! These pictures were taken at the Sinology Oscars. Every year the students who are in their second year of sinology have to make a Chinese movie. Afterwards the school organizes a kind of ‘Sinology Oscars’ where the movies are shown and everybody has to vote. There are ambassadors and people from the Chinese radio and everything. It’s really fun! Last year we won all the prizes, yay for us! You can check out our speech HERE and watch our movie HERE (or with Dutch subtitles HERE). If you want to watch the two of us cursing at each other in Chinese, skip to the scene which starts at 15:22. And we sing a song in the end, haha! If you don’t speak Chinese, nor Dutch, just watch the trailers below!

We had such a good time shooting that movie, if we’d have less homework we’d make another one! This year our dear Friend Laura and her friends had to make a movie and they also won a prize, yay for them!

Here are some pictures of us at this year’s oscars. As usual, Jade couldn’t help herself from dancing acting a little silly. Check out the pretty orchid in her hair though, it’s cute! We also had some group pictures taken. ^^

Festivities

Hi everyone!

Yesterday one of our friends turned 20 and we went to her birthday party. It was really fun! Before going to the party we let our friend Lai Yan braid our hair (she’s so darn good at it!). Then, at the party, we played some games together which was a lot of fun. We played a game called ‘werewolves’ where someone secretly gets picked as the werewolf and kills someone (this is obviously all fictitious), and then everyone has to have a discussion about who in the group could have been the werewolf. Tall and tiny weren’t playing as a team, because we kept blaming each other! It’s a compliment really, we just consider each other good actresses. However, in the end, we were both innocent! Silly.. Jade also baked a pie which was delicious! Mmm chocolatey goodness!

We also recorded a happy birthday message for the birthday girl in between two classes. In Chinese, it’s: “祝你生日快乐” which you pronounce as “Zhù nǐ shēngrì kuàilè” You see, no matter how different cultures are, almost everyone knows this song. ; )

Last but not least, we had a ‘knitting get together’ with our friends a while ago and forgot to mention it and post pictures! It was actually a surprise birthday party for another friend of ours (a lot of birthdays nowadays!). We cooked dinner together, ate cake pops (yum), ate cake (there was a lot of food, you see) and knitted together. It was super cozy! We added the pictures from that day below as well. ; )
Love, Tall and tiny

ps: a new song is in the making and we have a special guest in this one! xx

The Chinese map – 中国地图

Hi everyone!

We both felt a little off yesterday, so Elvi rested at home a little and Jade wore her boyfriend’s sweater (so comfortable..). We also had to make an assignment for school and dear god it was hard! We had to look up this tiny Chinese character in an ancient Chinese atlas. Finding it was so difficult!!

The weekend is almost there, so we’re very happy : )

PS: remember we said we’d (try to) translate to Chinese sometimes? Well we did!

大家好!

昨天我们俩有一点儿不舒服,所以艾霏在家里休息,而小玉穿了她的男朋友的毛衣(那么舒服⋯⋯)
我们很不舒服,但是还得做功课。我的天,那么难!我们在一本很古老的地图找到了一个非常小的汉字。真的很难找得到!

周末快要到了,所以我们很高兴 : )
