Learn Chinese in China


Meeting My Shanghainese In-laws and the rest of the family

Recommended Posts

When we are with him, he sometimes cooks for us because he can't bear what I cook. I also can't bear what he cooks because one drop of it is enough to give me a runny nose, but I have no choice but to finish it :blink:

Hopefully the OP won't have this problem as the original Shanghainese people usually don't cook very spicy food.

haha XD

My husband told me before the reason he didn't stay in China and marry his first girlfriend was because he doesn't like Chinese girls, he claims American girls are more independent and have opinions.

I can't cook anything really except Western food so my husband does a lot of the cooking or we eat out. He isn't a big fan of Western foods and is very picky.

A girl I work with is marrying into a Chinese family very soon and is taking cooking lessons in Chinese food, should I maybe, do the same?

No and you shouldn't do the housework either.
