Hot Mum Makeover! 潮妈变身记

Albert Einstein once said, “The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.” While the truth is still out there waiting to be found, we decided to get started on the beauty part with the help of the talented makeover team at TONI&GUY. Jieling Liu reports (again) on how to become a more beautiful and elegant mummy from head to toe.

Hair Design Natural elegance is a familiar trend in the fashion industry. However, a simple style of straight neat hair can be just as charming. In fact a good straight hairstyle can bring out a sense of freshness and unpretentiousness in people, as well as adding to an elegant temperament.

“唯有追求真与美,我们才能始终保持一颗童心” ——聪明如爱因斯坦,仍不忘追求美丽。美,是一 件多么重要的事情!汤尼英盖的资深美丽团队教你 如何从头到脚装扮一新,做个更美丽也更迷人的妈 妈。Jieling再次报道。

Anna Igumnova


Hairstylist : Mark Ma Makeup artist: Andy Liu Manicurist: Jingjing

美妆师:刘海龙 美甲师:晶晶

Anna Igumnova Anna’s Russian accent is modulated by a low and lovely soft voice. She also has healthy skin and is an ideal height. Her hair is luscious brown with only a touch of grey and complemented with voluminous natural curls. She dresses with a Northern European demeanor with simple earthy colours. And her typical style is everyday casual.

Makeover at: TONI&GUY Qingdao, Olympic Sailing Centre Branch 变身地点:TONI&GUY青岛奥帆中心店

安娜有着一副俄罗斯口音,声线软柔,她的中文还算不 错。她的肤色看起来很健康,身高颇为标致。安娜的头发偏细 软,发尾自然地呈现大卷的状态。她平日的着装是典型的北欧 人风格:泥土色系,简单大方。她喜欢合身又随性的衣着。

Hairstylist Mark suggested a “Transient Cut” – one of their classic cuts – to Anna, emphasizing her dynamic yet modest temperament. After the cutting, Mark applied a handful of Sebastian Thickefy Foam to make sure Anna’s hair stayed light and voluminous, while also matching her gentle appearance.

Makeup Design Anna has fine smooth skin with a light sheen, hence Andy - the Makeup artist used what he thought was only necessary. A thin layer of MAC foundation was applied to the contours of her face. After that he applied some light earth coloured eye shadow lightened with pearl pigment. The blush, also MAC’s, immediately brought out her hidden characteristics with the pink hue. Finally Andy applied a modest

brick-coloured lipstick that she happened to have brought with her. 妆面设计 因为Anna的皮肤细腻,整体 着装清新,所以化妆师Andy只用 MAC的粉底液把脸部的内轮廓薄薄 打上一层,后用大地色的眼影画出 层次感,边缘加一些珠光提亮,加 上MAC粉红系腮红,使肤色变得红 润,娇艳的同时增加了立体感,整 体感觉清新自然,恰好符合了清新 妈咪的气质。

发型设计 自然优雅一直是时尚界永不退潮的流 行,简洁的直发可以给女孩带来无尽的优雅 与魅力。直发的利落、自然与清纯感,也非 常适合气质优雅的女性。 发型设计师Mark给Anna选择了Toni&Guy“动感长发”这一款经典的裁剪,并在 此基础上创造出充分体现出她干练、动感, 淳朴气质的长直发型。精心剪裁后,再加上 Sebastian雪盈摩丝,创造出蓬松轻盈、充 满空气感的造型,同时也不失柔俏。这款发 型是今年春夏不错的选择。

Here she is with a green and white floral dress along with her daughter Masha, smiling and shining with the fragrance and energy of spring. 在绿白相间碎花裙的映照之下,安娜容光焕发,与女儿似在春天的芬芳下 畅快漫步。

每对父母在怀孕时都期待生下一个健康活泼的宝宝。不过,不是所有人 都这么幸运。在意外发生时,幸好有一些机构会伸出援手,帮助有需要 的孩子和父母。Katie跟大家分享她参与Funny Lumps慈善组织、支持 并帮助患儿对付多发性神经纤维瘤的经历。

When you’re expecting; every parent hopes for a happy and healthy child. However, not everyone is as fortunate. Luckily there are organisations that provide support for children and their families if the unexpected occurs. Katie Fullerton talks about Funny Lumps, a support group for children with NF1.

support children with NF1 get funding as some of it goes into help for these children and their teachers in schools. Beth already has someone who liaises with her nursery staff as well as with her parents. This takes me to what we are doing. On the 27th of April I will join 24 other members of a team called Captain Boo’s Lions to walk 23 miles in the Glasgow Kiltwalk. The Kiltwalk supports various children’s charities in Scotland and if you enter a team of more than 20 you can nominate a charity and they receive 75% of your total raised. Our nominated charity is Funny Lumps.


people. Surprisingly, despite it being the most common genetic neurological condition it is largely unheard of. I had certainly never heard of it 10 months ago.

Beth had been diagnosed with neurofibromatosis 1 or NF1 for short. It is a genetic condition that currently isn’t curable and affects 1 in 3000

NF1 can cause a vast variety of health issues for suffers. Initial symptoms that are often seen before a diagnosis is given are cafe au lait spots sometimes mistaken for birth marks and tumours that can grow anywhere on the body. In the most severe cases these can grow in the brain and on the spinal cord which can lead to epilepsy and bone deformation as well as many other complications. Since this condition affects every sufferer differently and there isn’t any way to map the progress of it throughout an individuals lifetime doctors watch and treat

hen I was pregnant everyone wanted to know what we were having and my general smart reply was ‘well we’re hoping for a baby.’ the conversation inevitability ended with the question what do you want, a boy or a girl? And we’d give the same reply each time ‘we don’t mind so long as it’s healthy.’ So far so good our daughter seems to be healthy. Unfortunately not everyone is so lucky. About the same time as we had our baby, a very good friend was being told her beautiful baby girl’s health was forever more going to be in question.


symptoms and complications as they arise. Presently Beth, at 18 months, has a tumour on her back and is very slightly delayed in walking. She also has a few problems with her balance. It is impossible to tell if these things will be better or worse in the future for her and many others. Individuals with NF1 also have a 65% chance of having learning difficulties throughout their lives with varying severity. Often children will have problems with concentration in the classroom as well as difficulties with reading, writing and maths. They can also have trouble with coordination. Children with these complications can learn as well as anyone but they require alternative learning strategies in order to succeed at school. It is therefore vital that charities that

Funny Lumps was established in 2013 to help support children and families of children with NF1. They liaise with parents and schools to raise awareness and ensure the kids get the best learning experience possible. They also organise events to get families together for additional information and vital support. This is where the money we raise will go. We are of course looking to raise as much as we can for this fabulous charity but we are also aiming to raise awareness for NF1.

得自己怀孕那段日子里,大 家都十分好奇,想知道怀的 是男孩还是女孩。我一般 都会卖个关子,告诉他们 暂时还不太清楚,只知道怀上了。不过 大多数人都不会就此打住,继续问想要 男孩儿还是女孩,在我和丈夫看来,男 孩女孩都不重要,只要孩子能健健康康 就好。我们很幸运,女儿们到现在为止 都很健康。不过并不是所有人都和我们 一样幸福,和我同一期间生产的好友被 告知,自己的女儿患上了先天性疾病, 且无法根治。 她的女儿叫Beth,被诊断患有Ⅰ型 多发性神经纤维瘤,简称NF1。该病为 遗传性疾病,暂时无法治愈,发病率为 1/3000。 虽然这是一种最为常见的遗传 性神经疾病,但令人意外的是,外界对 该病的了解甚少。我也是在10个月前才 听说过有这种病的。 对于患者来说,多发性神经纤维瘤 可导致多种健康问题。初级症状为皮肤 上出现咖啡斑(有时会被误认为胎记) 以及身体任何部位都有可能出现肿瘤。 最严重的情况是,肿瘤长在大脑或者脊 髓里,导致癫痫、骨质病变等其他并发 症。NF1在不同个体的临床表现各不相 同,而且即使有私人医生对患者进行终 生观察, 也无法预知何时发病,会有哪 些并发症。Beth现在已18个月大了,背 上长了一个肿瘤,在学步方面稍微晚了 一点儿,在控制平衡方面也有些障碍。 难以想象,Beth以及其他患者今后的 生活会是怎样?是有所好转还是每况愈 下,不免令人为其担忧。 65%的NF患者都有不同程度的学习 障碍。孩子们上课时通常无法集中注意 力,在阅读,写作和数学的方面也有困 难,有些还有协调性问题。虽说如此, 但患这类并发症的儿童同样能够和普通 孩子一样顺利完成学业,他们只是需要 额外的学习帮助。目前,已经有一些慈

善组织开始为NF患儿筹集善款,部分善 款将用于孩子的额外教育费用,基于这 一点,我们更应该支持这些组织,献出 自己的一份力。现在已经有专人为Beth 进行医护方面和家庭之间的沟通。 随着研究的深入,我对这些组织有 了进一步的了解,并关注了他们组织的 一些活动。4月27日,Kiltwalk(穿苏格 兰裙行走)组织将在英国格拉斯哥市, 举办一场慈善行走活动,全程23公里, 我也会加入一支名为Captain Boo’s Lions(布船长的狮子)的队伍,和其他 24名队员一起完成这次行走。Kiltwalk 是一家苏格兰的慈善组织,通过举办行 走活动,为各类儿童慈善组织提供筹款 平台。参加活动的队伍只要超过20人, 就可以选择一家自己关注的慈善组织, 把自己队伍筹款总额的75%捐给这个组 织,我们这次选择的慈善组织为Funny Lumps(搞怪的肿块)。 Funny Lumps慈善组织 于2013年成 立,主要为了帮助患有NF1的儿童及家 庭。作为家长和学校之间的桥梁,他们 让学校更多地关注患病儿童,确保孩子 们接受到学校所能提供的最佳教育,同 时Funny Lumps也举办一些家庭联谊活 动,促进家庭之间的相互交流,相互帮 助和支持。我们这次筹到的善款也将捐 给该组织。 我们希望能为该组织尽可能地多筹 集一些善款,同时也希望能引起更多人 对NF1患者的关注。了解更多关于Funny Lumps慈善组织的信息,请点击www. ,有意捐款的爱心人士 请点击下面的链接 Katie-Fullerton/ 或者发送电邮至。 爱心不分大小,每一个善意之举对 孩子而言都同样珍贵。








xpats - from Australia, Europe, North America and elsewhere - arrive in China expecting to see and experience not only a new culture, but also a new environment. For many, and in many ways, Qingdao fulfills these expectations: a beautiful coastline, mountains and widely contrasting seasons. Less visible, however, are the indigenous flora and fauna.

Many Qingdao expats live in gated communities where cultivated gardens include familiar flowers, plants and trees. Typically these are regularly - and liberally - treated with both insecticides and herbicides. One of the most commonly seen birds are black-billed magpies (Pica


pica), which even many non-Chinese can easily identify. So where are the unique animals and plants then?

life is tremendous, although I suspect that even here; at least some of it is non-native.

Soon after our arrival in Qingdao, my son Elijah and I hosted our first two couchsurfers in China: a middle-aged physician and her friend, an electrician, from Busan, South Korea. Outdoorsy and adventurous, they wanted to climb nearby Laoshan and invited us to join them. For those in Qingdao who haven’t explored this area, I would highly recommend it. Although perhaps not visibly teeming with animal life, hikers can see animals such as frogs, lizards, birds and plenty of exotic and, dare I say, beautiful - insects and spiders. And of course the plant

In the United States, I am lucky to have friends who are both bird lovers and exceptional photographers. Swapping photos with a friend in Oakland, California, she wanted to know about the bird life in Qingdao. Hmm, I thought. What can I impress her with? Well, I told her, there are swallows (small and fast birds) that I’ve seen, outside our windows on the 12th floor, teasing our cat Bella. After some research, we discovered they are Barn Swallows, the same species she has seen and photographed in California.

Qingdao is blessed with many things: great food, beautiful scenery and a surprising variety of indigenous plants and animals. Melissa Clifford takes us for a walk on the wild side. 青岛得天独厚的地理位置和气候,造就了丰富的美 食、优美的风景,以及多元化的动植物生态。看看 Melissa都发现了些什么有趣的东西。

This was not the first time I discovered species in Qingdao that I’ve seen in the U.S. Leaving our apartment, on the way to the airport to visit Cambodia, my son and I found a large green moth on the sidewalk, alive. I let - okay, encouraged - the moth to crawl onto my finger to better examine it. A Luna Moth (Actias luna). The only other time I’ve seen Luna Moths was in Vermont, in the northeastern United States. Another North American animal, familiar to many and common in northeastern China, is the red fox (Vulpes vulpes). These foxes are truly omnivorous, although they feed primarily on rodents. The red fox is native to parts of Asia, unlike the

Luna Moth. “Huli jing (is) a fox spirit in Chinese mythology known for usually causing mischief, seducing humans and finally killing them,” reports Wikipedia. Occasionally, wildlife arrives right in your backyard. Carrie and Peter Thorpe, who live in Laoshan, experienced just that when Carrie found an owl huddled on the ground outside their first-floor apartment. Not wanting a member of the local and abundant feral cat population to make a meal of the owl, Carrie took it in. Ms. Thorpe, was unsure about a number of things: Was it a pet owl that had escaped? Had it broken or injured a wing? What did it eat? Was it an adult (this was a very small owl)?

于远赴重洋赶到中国的外国 人而言,我们不仅期待着新 的文化,还向往着另一种环 境。青岛得天独厚的地理 环境,让大多数来过老外们都能尽兴而 归:美丽的海岸线,秀丽的山峦,分明 的四季。然而,除了这些显而易见的自 然风光外,青岛本地丰富的动植物资源 同样不会让他们失望。 岛城很多外籍人士居住在封闭的社 区里:人工花园里堆杂着相似的花草树 木。很明显,这都是人工有规律地播洒 杀虫剂和除草剂的产物。最常见的是叽 叽呱呱黑白相间的喜鹊,即使不是中国 人也能轻松认出来。那么,本地特有的 动植物都去哪了呢? 来青岛不久以后,我和儿子Elijah接 待了两个沙发客:一位中年医生和她的



FEATURES hedgehog. Again, a bit of internet research brought up the Amur hedgehog (Erinaceus amurensis), which is quite commonly found in eastern China, southeastern Russia and the Korean peninsula. Ms. Rust enjoys her visits with the hedgehog, an animal which has no relatives found in the Americas. (I liked that my research on hedgehogs in China brought up no disparaging traditional beliefs, but I did learn of a Beijing-based, indie-rock band called Hedgehog!)

Without the benefit of a wildlife rehabilitation organisation, which are commonly found in the U.S. and Canada, the Thorpes had to improvise. They bought chicken meat and offered water to the owl, which they kept in a large plastic bin. Eventual force-feeding (earthworms, chicken) of the bird and time brought about the improvements necessary to release it into a wooded area. After researching on the internet, the Thorpes decided that the owl was, most likely, an Oriental Scops Owl (Otus sunia). Hari Qhuang of www.hariqhuang. reports that traditional Chinese beliefs about owls are that they are evil, will eat their mothers, and are an exceptionally bad omen if seen. Based on this, the Thorpe’s owl was probably not an escaped pet. Research about local birds on the internet turned up a few good sites, particularly which features photos, descriptions and the


binomial names of birds that were spotted here in Qingdao: shrikes, egrets, herons, owls, kites, terns, kestrels and many others. (www. Peter Thorpe met one of the authors of this list, Brian Westland, who lives here in Qingdao. What else can be seen here in Qingdao? Well, the easiest are certainly the creepy-crawly varieties. My middle school students have become accustomed to me bringing them millipedes, butterflies, dragonflies, beetles, moths, caterpillars and even spiders. They even sometimes bring them to me! If alive, we try to return them safely to where they were found. Elijah is especially fond of spotting insects and other arthropods, which he is usually willing to carefully transport to our apartment for me to examine. Rachel Rust, a QISS high school science teacher, has an occasional visitor to her yard in Shilaoren: a

Another QISS teacher, Piers Matthews, reported seeing a yellow weasel in Qingdao, near Songling Road. Wikipedia confirmed that it was a - surprisingly named - Siberian weasel (Mustela sibirica), also known as a kolonok. These small (360 to 820 grams!) carnivores feed primarily on rodents, such as mice and voles. Unfortunately, Wikipedia reports that “ in Chinese folklore, the Siberian weasel is viewed as a wandering spirit (shen) that can steal and replace people's souls.” The subject of animals, plants, fungi, bacteria and their relationships is also one discussed in my classroom at QISS, and presumably at many other schools. We cover, in depth, the topic of ecosystem balance, keystone species and the necessity of having a variety of organisms to keep environments healthy. It’s nice to know that even in this very urban environment, we can still see nature, if we want to. Hopefully, Qingdao can both conserve and expand upon the biodiversity that it has, and update its views, if necessary, on animals such as weasels, foxes and owls.

朋友,一位来自韩国釜山的电器技师。他们 爱好户外运动,富有冒险精神,并邀我们同 去爬崂山。对在青岛但还没去过崂山的人, 我非常推荐你试试。虽然可看见的动物资源 不是很丰富,不过登山者们还是能看到青 蛙、壁虎、鸟类,还有很多形态各异、美艳 姣丽的昆虫。植物资源的数量则十分庞大, 不过我怀疑,这里的一部分植物也不是土生 土长的。 我有个朋友在美国奥克兰,她既是鸟类 保护者又是很棒的摄影师。有一次,我正在 跟她互发照片,她突发奇想,想知道青岛的 鸟类情况。嗯,那我想想。我有什么能跟她 说的?我跟她说,我曾在我们12楼,看见过 窗户外的一种鸟在挑逗我家的猫Bella。一番 调查过后,我们发现是燕子,和她在加州拍 到的是同一种。 这已经不是我第一次在青岛发现美国的 物种了。从青岛去柬埔寨时,儿子和我在前 往机场的马路人行道上发现了一只活着的绿 蛾子,体型巨大。“别怕,上来吧”,我不 断鼓励这只蛾子爬到我的手指上,以便好好 查看。原来是月形天蚕蛾(柳蚕)!之前我 只在美国东北的佛蒙特见过月形天蚕蛾。 另一种北美动物,红狐狸(赤狐喜马拉 雅亚种),广泛分布在中国东北。虽然它们 以啮齿类动物为食,但它们实际上是杂食性 动物。不像月形天蚕蛾,红狐是亚洲部分地 区土生土长的动物。维 基百科上显示:“狐狸精 是中国关于狐狸的迷信说 法。狐狸精会迷惑、引诱 并最终杀掉人类。"

猫头鹰准备了水和鸡肉,放在一个大的塑料 桶里。强制性进食(虫子和鸡肉)一段时间 后,猫头鹰恢复得差不多了,夫妇俩就将它 放归了森林。上网搜索以后,他们确信这是 一只东方角鸮。 据wordpress.com上一位名为Hari Qhuang的博主的文章,在中国的传统信仰 中,猫头鹰很邪恶,吃生母,一旦看到就是 凶兆。既然如此,Carrie和Peter捡到的猫头 鹰应该不是逃出来的。 通过网络对本地鸟类进行研究的同 时,我们也发现了一些不错的网站,尤其是。该网站不仅有图片和详 细的描述,还用二名法标注了鸟类的名称, 比如伯劳鸟、白鹭、苍鹭、猫头鹰、鸢、燕 鸥,红隼和其它鸟类。Peter曾见过这份列表 的其中一位作者——住在青岛的Brian Westland先生。 在青岛还能看见些什么呢?当然了, 最容易见到的肯定是爬行类昆虫。我经常会 给学生们带一些千足虫、蝴蝶、蜻蜓、甲壳 虫、蛾子、幼虫甚至蜘蛛,以至于现在他们 都已经习以为常了。有时候他们也会带一些 给我!如果是活的,我们会尽力将它们安全 放生。Elijah特别喜欢捕捉昆虫和其它节肢动 物,他总会把它们小心翼翼地带回家,让我 鉴定。

Rachel Rust是山东省青岛第一国际学 校的自然科目老师,她住在石老人附近。一 天,她在院子里发现了一位不请自来的客 人:一只刺猬。一番调查之后,她发现这原 来是一只在中国东部、俄罗斯东北部及朝鲜 半岛都相当常见的远东刺猬。Rachel老师很 享受刺猬的光临,她在中国没啥亲戚(刺猬 没什么不吉祥的象征,了解到这一点我很高 兴。我也恰巧知道了一支驻北京的独立乐队 就自命名为“刺猬”)。 来自同一学校的老师Piers Matthews 也曾在青岛松岭路附近看到了一只鼪(即黄 鼠狼)。维基百科上显示,这种鼪其实是西 伯利亚鼪。这种小家伙体重从360至820克 不等,主要以啮齿类动物为食,比如老鼠。 不幸的是,维基百科上也显示,在中国民俗 里,西伯利亚鼪被视作四处游荡的狐仙,专 勾取人类的灵魂。 动物、植物、真菌、细菌之间的关系, 是我在学校课堂上的主题之一(其他学校也 应该会有)。我们深入探究生态平衡、关键 物种、保护生物多样化与环境维护的重要 性。虽然我们生活的环境变得越来越城市 化,但并不代表看不到自然,主要取决于我 们想不想。青岛的本土物种相当丰富,希望 我们能够共同维护并拓展已有生物的多样 性。如果可能的话,我们希望能看到更多的 鼪、狐狸和猫头鹰。

野生动物偶尔也会 出现在你的后花园。住在 崂山的Carrie和Peter就有 切身经历。有一天 Carrie 在他们一楼公寓的门外, 发现一只蜷缩成一团、体 型稍小的猫头鹰。为了不 让其成为本地人或流浪野 猫的盘中餐,Carrie把它 带了进来。不过,她心里 还有许多疑问:这是一只 逃出来的家养猫头鹰吗? 是不是翅膀断了或者受伤 了?它已经成年了吗? 由于找不到野生动 物康复组织(在美国和加 拿大很常见)的帮助,Carrie和Peter夫妇俩只好 自己想办法。他们给这只

Transition, a Bicycle & an Expat Friend

ticing avoidance is a great way to not learn about forgiveness. Affirming others- while it sounds much easier than reconciliation, affirmation often proves difficult. We assume others should already know how we feel and deliberately saying nice stuff can be awkward. True. But by putting it in words we clarify the truth and no one is left wondering. A good affirmation explains how someone has added value to our life.

搬家过渡期, 打包和说再见

Farewells- few people are excited by farewells full of hugs, tears, runny noses and heartfelt promises to meet again. More often than not most of us would prefer to skip these emotional exchanges. What’s that I hear you say, “Facebook means no more goodbyes?” While social media provides connection it is shallow compared to being in the same physical location. Social media has definitely not made a real farewell obsolete.

在青岛生活一段时间后,人们总会发现这样一群人:他们像候鸟一样来 也匆匆,去也匆匆。夏天时往来更加频繁。Damian Tapley是青岛MTI 国际学校学生管理办公室的负责人,他来青岛已经有12年了。今天,就 让他来给大家支支招,看看搬家过渡期应如何度过。


Having said this however, I haven’t always experienced transition as a smooth approachable thing that I want to touch. Actually quite the opposite. Dr. Nancy Schlossberg gives a thorough and academic definition of transition… I suggest ‘Googling’ it. But the basics of what she says is: when things around us change it affects us even if we want to admit it or not.


Thanks for the explanation, Nancy. For the purpose of this article we’ll take a slightly closer look at the transition that surrounds leaving somewhere.

to your close expat friend’s insensitive response you’re determined to take your bike. One bike, and one expat friend down, now just everything and everyone else to deal with.

When transition strikes I head to the task side of things; my wife to the relational side of things. Experience has taught me that transition is not about tasks or relationships, it’s about both tasks and relationships. In preparing to leave there are a crazy number of tasks and relationships that need to be considered. The four important ‘P’s’ are: people, pets, places or possessions (Dr David Pollock).

In my experiences with transitions the ‘must do’ model for leaving well is ‘RAFT’: Reconciliation, Affirmation, Farewell, Think ahead (Dr David Pollock). None of these must do's are easy to start and each one requires attention to tasks and relationships.

Your thoughts go to what will you take and what will you leave; and thanks

尽管如此,我的每一次过渡,都没有 自己想象中那么顺利,往往都事与愿违。 Nancy Schlossberg 博士从学术上定 义了什么是“搬家过渡期”,读者可以去 谷歌一下。它的基本意思是,不管我们承 不承认,周围事物的变化都会对我们产生 一定的影响。感谢Nancy博士的解释。 下面让我们一起走近“搬家过渡期” ,看一下它会对人 们产生怎样的影响 吧!

In my experiences with transitions the ‘must do’ model for leaving well is ‘RAFT’: Reconciliation, Affirmation, Farewell, Think ahead (Dr David Pollock).

Some of us that have lived in Qingdao for a while found a pattern about the expats here: they are coming and leaving. The pattern seems to be even more obvious with summer coming. Damian Tapley, the Head of Student Services at the ISQ with 12 years of experience living in this city, tells you all about transition.

ransition is a smooth sounding word. It has no hard sounding letters and has an almost onomatopoeic quality. It sounds sleek and comfortable, something you might want to touch, like the latest offering from Apple. Or maybe that’s just me?


渡”这两个字听起来 顺耳又亲切,不仅画 面感十足,还能让人 有种想要尝试的冲 动,就像苹果公司新品上市时,人们抢着 尝鲜一样。大家同意我的描述吗?还是我 自己的一厢情愿?

Reconciliation- let’s face it, most of us see conflict as something to avoid. So what better way to avoid conflict than leave? Right? Insert answer: Wrong. The reality is a relationship stays broken until it is fixed, avoiding it is just that, avoidance; and prac-

根据我以往的经验,搬家 过渡期必须要完成以下四 个任务(简称RAFT):和 解、坦白、告别和展望。

Thinking ahead- getting ready for the future is important and requires us to develop realistic expectations, even when it’s unknown. I’ve come to believe the best way to respond to the unknown is by measuring how well we embrace it. Embracing something means drawing it towards us and owning it, not avoiding it or allowing anxious emotions to paralyze us.

Remember transition isn’t the smooth shiny concept it sounds like, and if you want to leave well then I suggest that you take care of your tasks and relationships in a careful and thorough way, try RAFT... and just give the bike to your expat friend.

要 离 开 某 地 时,我首先会想到 有哪些事情要处 理,而我妻子则会 先想到怎么和朋友 们告别。经验告诉 我,搬家过渡期, 不是简单的收拾东 西打包行李,也不 只是跟朋友道个 别,而是要两者兼 顾。

离 开 某 地 之 前,有很多要做的 事情,也有很多感 情需要处理。 David Pollock博士总结 了人们搬家时需要处理的四种最关键的人 和事(简称“4P”):人、宠物、住所以 及其他财产。 对于像我们这样的“任务型”人来 说,搬家过渡期为我们提供了大显身手的 好机会。但是,由于太过执着于完成任 务,一不留神就会忘了,自己可能将失去 朋友,宠物,住所和拥有的东西。反过 来,“社交型”的人则把大部分时间花在 了处理朋友关系等事宜上,以至最终来不 及完成任务。 “我要走了”这句话,包含了多种 感情,可能是兴奋,也可能是悲伤或者焦 虑。当你跟闺蜜或好兄弟说要走的时候,

他们的第一反应也许是“你的自行车怎么 办?要带走还是把它卖了?然后,他们赶 紧补一句,“还是送人?”接下来,你才 会意识到自己搬家的成本。你会开始思考 哪些东西要带走,哪些东西要留下来;多 亏了朋友的提醒,你决定把自行车带走。 为了一辆自行车,少了一位好友,随后还 有一堆其他人和事需要处理。 根据我以往的经验,搬家过渡期必 须要完成的任务主要有以下四个(简称 RAFT):和解、坦白、告别和展望。这些 任务完成起来都不容易,每一个都需要很 多精力。 和解。坦白说,面对冲突的时候,我 们中大部分人都会选择逃避,而不是找机 会化解。所以,还有什么比离开更能避免 和解呢?对吧?如果你是这么想的话,那 就错了。事实上,关系如果不修复的话, 就会一直好不了。逃避终究只是逃避,而 且总是逃避的人也学不会如何体谅别人。 坦白。虽然听起来比和解简单一些, 但向朋友敞开心扉却不是一件容易的事 情。我们总以为别人能够体会到自己的感 受,而把一些真实想法藏着掖着,况且故 意说一些违心的话也有点儿尴尬。因此, 我们应该把真实感受告诉朋友,只有这样 才能把事实澄清,避免别人的无端揣测。 心意相通会给人们的生活增值。 告别。几乎没有人会因为离别而兴 奋。谈到离别,人们就会想到拥抱、眼 泪、鼻涕和相约再见这些画面。通常,我 们都不想经历这种哭哭啼啼的场面。人 们常说“有了facebook,哪还需要说再 见?”然而,社交网络上的联络和见面相 比,还是淡了一些。即使在社交网络仍然 保持联络,离别终究还是离别。 展望。为将来做准备很重要,就算是 未知的未来,也需要我们有提前打算。我 开始意识到,应对未知的最好方法是拥抱 它。拥抱意味着拉近与未知的距离,并且 紧紧抓住,而不是想尽办法逃避它,或者 让自己被未知带来的焦虑感所麻痹。 要牢记:过渡并不像听起来那样容 易。如果你想要顺利地离开一个地方,我 建议你好好处理一下要做的事情以及要 整理的人际关系。试试RAFT吧!还有就 是,大方一点,自行车就别带走了,送给 朋友吧!

Donald (30), Stephanie (31), Benjamin (5), Hosanna (4) and Samuel (2). India and America Donald was born in Kenya (eastern Africa), lived in the USA for three years and then lived the majority of his life in India before returning to the USA for education and relocating to China seven years ago. Stephanie was born in the USA, but her family moved to Japan when she was just three months old. Living there for the next 18 years before returning to the USA for education, she relocated to China with Donald in 2006 after less than a year of marriage. Although living in Qingdao since 2006, their two older kids were born in Japan – Benjamin (2008) and Hosanna (2009) – with Samuel being born in Beijing (2011).


Donald is the Head of Physical Education at the International School of Qingdao where he enjoys teaching.

czema is a common allergic and inflammatory skin disease that appears as a symmetrically distributed rash along with severe itching. It can involve repeated occurrences and easily evolve into a chronic disease. How is it caused? The onset of eczema is caused by a multitude of factors that interact with each other. These include emotional states namely depression, fatigue, anxiety, tension and insomnia and physical factors such as prolonged exposure to cold, wet or dry climates. How can we prevent it? First, develop healthy eating habits. Avoid inflammatory foods such as spicy food, seafood and red meat. However, if you don’t eat properly it will also cause a lose of important nutrition and worsen your condition. Second, a person who has allergies or has a family history of allergies should avoid external stimuli, such as hot scalding water and sunburn. To avoid increasing skin sensitivity to eczema, live and maintain a balanced lifestyle. Clothing should be

worn comfortably loose in order to reduce friction, and avoid fibers such as acrylic and wool from coming in direct contact with the skin.

The greater the strength (potency), the more effect it has on reducing inflammation, but the greater the risk of side-effects with continued use.

General treatment Patients should consider other environmental factors that may cause eczema such as their working environment and daily habits. Avoid outdoor factors like sunburn. Try not to wear lingerie products made of synthetic fibers. Avoid food that may increase sensitivity and exacerbate the disease such as seafood, peppers, wine and coffee. Keep the skin clean, prevent the skin from infection, avoid fatigue and keep an optimistic mood.

Vitamins There are a number of vitamins that may help with treating eczema. Vitamin D supplements, although controversial, are quickly becoming a more mainstream treatment as studies show that supplementing Vitamin D can help eczema and that more severe eczema is correlated with lower levels of Vitamin D. Safe and inexpensive, it seems a reasonable option for most patients.

Topical steroids (steroid creams and ointments) Topical steroids work by reducing inflammation in the skin. Topical steroids are grouped into four categories depending on their strength: mild, moderately potent, potent, and very potent. There are various brands and types in each category. For example, hydrocortisone cream 1% is a commonly used steroid cream and is classed as a mild topical steroid.

Topical Vitamin B12 has also been studied and has some compelling evidence that it too can be a beneficial treatment. However at the time of this article being written, there is no specific commercial product available and must be combined with other vitamins in order to be used which can be expensive.

疹是一种常见的过敏性炎 症性皮肤病,以皮疹多 样性、对称分布、剧烈瘙 痒、反复发作为特征,容 易演变成慢性疾病。

湿疹是怎样引起的? 湿疹是由多种因素相互作用引起 的。一般来说,湿疹是由抑郁、忧虑、 紧张、情绪激动、失眠等神经精神因 素以及日光、紫外线、寒冷、潮湿、干 燥、摩擦等气候或物理因素所引起的。

怎样预防? 首先,我们应该从饮食习惯做起。 避免刺激性食物,如味道辛辣的、海 鲜、狗肉以及红肉(牛肉和羊肉)等。 如果盲目地忌食,会造成身体营养不 足,身体状况会变差。普遍认为,适当 的忌食是有必要的,特别是在服用药物 期间。一般来说,忌食是利大于弊。 其次,过敏体质或有过敏家族史 的人,应该避免各种外界刺激,如热水 烫伤、抓挠、晒伤等。养成有规律的生 活习惯,劳逸结合。想要减少擦伤的几 率,可以穿宽松的衣服,并防止化学纤 维和羊毛直接接触皮肤。

局部使用类固醇药物 (乳霜和药膏) 局部使用类固醇药物可减轻皮肤炎 症。根据药性强度,类固醇药物可以分 成四大种类:温和、适度、较强及很强 的。每一种类都有不同的品牌和类型。 例如:1%氢化可的松乳膏是一种常用 的类固醇乳膏,属于性质温和的局部使 用类固醇。药物强度越强大,减轻皮肤 炎症的效果越好,但相应持续用药出现 的副作用的风险越高。

维生素 许多维生素对湿疹都有帮助。使用 维生素D来治疗湿疹的方法虽然备受争 议,不过,主流研究正逐渐证明:许多 严重的湿疹患者都是因为体内维生素D 水平偏低,补充维生素D可帮助治疗湿 疹。使用维生素D不仅经济实惠,而且 安全,因而备受患者青睐。 研究同时证明,局部应用维生素 B12来对付湿疹也是相当有效的。然 而,截止本文发稿前,目前市面上尚无 专门研发用来治疗湿疹的维生素B12产 品,而且维生素B12也必须与其他维生 素混合使用,价格还可能相当昂贵。


How Mouth Breathing Affects Your Teeth 口呼吸的习惯如何影响牙齿


hen breathing with just the mouth, your lips might not close properly, leading to the buccal muscle and tongue losing its dynamic balance. In the long run, mouth breathing can cause a narrow jaw and crooked and protrusive teeth. The common reasons are adenoidal hypertrophy, tonsillar hypertrophy, or habitual mouth breathing caused by a blocked airway. If mouth breathing occurs because of hypertrophic organic tissue, then an operation will be needed. But with habitual mouth breathing, it can be corrected by an orthodontist. If you find your children are mouth breathing, don’t panic! Simply consult with a professional orthodontist. They can examine whether their jaws are narrowing or not. Then you might be referred to an otolaryngology doctor. However, Dr. Olive suggests, that if you go straight to an otolaryngology doctor, they may not give you a full diagnosis since there may not be any obvious inflammation, while an orthodontist focuses more on maxillofacial development which is influenced by imbalanced facial muscles due to mouth breathing.

些人有偶尔用口呼吸的习 惯。长期用口呼吸的话, 可能会影响到你的牙齿 和口腔。口腔有可能会变得无法闭 合,唇颊和舌肌有可能会失去动力 平衡,进而导致颌骨变得狭窄、牙 齿出现前突、不齐等现象。 也有些时候是因为人体的腺样 体、扁桃体因某种原因变大,造成 习惯性用口呼吸。如果是由于这些 组织肥大而引起的口呼吸,患者需 要动手术及时纠正。如果只是因习 惯而形成的口呼吸,那可就需要到 医院找正畸医生帮忙了。 如果你发现你的孩子有张口呼 吸的行为的话,不用紧张,你可以 去找专业正畸医生检查,看是否因 为颌骨狭窄而引起。需要的时候, 他们会建议你去耳鼻喉诊室会诊。 如果去找耳鼻喉科医生的话,据廖 医生表示,他们或许会不建议你进 行治疗,因为这不是因为炎症而引 起的。而通常情况下,正畸医生会 更重视张口呼吸的行为,因为它有 可能影响颌面部发育。

Pregnancy Fitness at Home 3 ways busy mums can squeeze in exercise



any women get pregnant and think that’s the end of keeping fit. Sure, you’re tired. You’ve got things to do and possibly other kids to care for. Maybe a gym is too expensive or too difficult for you to get to each day. Or maybe you never exercised at all. Having a baby is one of the most strenuous ordeals your body will ever go through. Preparing your body for this major milestone

will only make getting back down to size easier after the birth. Plus, working out while expecting has a whole bunch of other health benefits like boosting your energy, helping you sleep better and reducing your pregnancy discomfort, just to name a few. So, Mum, what are you waiting for? Here are three great exercises you can do at home, no matter what your fitness level!

Jennifer Raskin

在很多准妈妈看来,怀孕似乎就意味 着跟健身绝缘了。很多时候,这只是借口。 你有不少事要操劳,可能还有老大老二要照 顾。而且你可能也不想把钱花在健身房,无 法每天坚持,又或者根本没有锻炼的习惯。 十月怀胎将是你人生中最艰苦的一项考验, 为了宝宝的顺利降生,怎能不先把身体锻炼 好呢?况且健身还有助于产后身材的恢复, 让你精力充沛,提高睡眠质量,减少孕中不 适等。孕妈妈们,还等什么呢?赶紧跟着下 面的三招动起来吧!




Squats To truly target the areas that will be most affected by your pregnancy, you need squats. There are actually many variations of squats but if you just stick to the original, it will do wonders for your thighs and backside. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart and then squat down, as though you are about to sit in a chair. Stand back up and squeeze your buttocks as you come up. You may also try keeping your legs together for the squat, or putting them further apart with your knees pointed out to the sides to work the innermost muscles of your thighs. If you feel balance is an issue, keep a chair nearby and hold onto it to steady yourself.

The Stomach Vacuum This is a great exercise to keep your abs strong. Plus, you can perform it many different ways - on your hands and knees, sitting or standing. To do the vacuum and strengthen the deepest layer of abdominal muscles, inhale and tighten your stomach by pulling your belly button in toward your spine. Then exhale so your stomach expands out.


Pushups are a full-body exercise that works everything from your chest to your arms to your core. They have been a workout staple for ages because they truly work. If the regular pushup is too hard for you, modify it so you are on your knees instead. Not comfortable on your knees? You can use any wall in your home to do a wall pushup too. Try for 3 sets of 12 reps.

Learning to Thai 品泰味

Additionally, doing a regular squat and modifying it to go deeper by dropping your rear end all the way past your knees so it almost touches the ground is even better than doing kegel exercises.

蹲起练习 还在为怀孕会让哪些部位走形而担心吗? 那就试试蹲起练习吧。蹲起有很多种,如果坚持 练习最基本的,那你就会发现,这对大腿和臀部 的曲线保持很有效。双腿分开,与肩同宽,然后 假想身后有把椅子一样蹲下。站起身来时注意收 紧臀部。你还可以尝试并拢双腿,或者分得再开 一点儿,并膝盖朝内,以此来锻炼大腿内侧的肌 肉。如果你还不能很好地掌握平衡,可以在旁边 准备一把椅子扶着做。另外,如果可以加大下蹲 的幅度,让臀部几乎着地,效果会比做骨盆操运 动还要好。

俯卧撑 俯卧撑是一项全身运动,需要 胸、臂以及机体核心部分的共同配 合。俯卧撑之所以成为经典的健身方 法,是因为真的很有效。如果常规俯 卧撑对你来说太难的话,不妨可以改 成双膝跪 地式。这样还是做不了? 那就试试做靠墙俯卧撑吧。每天尝试 做3组,每组12个。

What’s great about these exercises is that you can do them quickly, while you wait for your electric kettle to heat up or while dinner’s in the oven. Add a walk around the neighborhood a couple times a week and you’ll be one hot mum! Breathe normally as you maintain the pulled-in abdominals for two seconds. Release and then repeat 10 to 20 times.

收腹练习 这是一个锻炼腹部的好方法。坐着或站着都 可以做,通过双手和膝盖配合来进行。这种方法 可以有效收紧腹部的肌肉层。吸气,腹部收缩, 肚脐向脊椎靠近,保持腹肌两秒钟绷紧状态。然 后呼气,腹部扩张。放松,再重复10到20次。

What can I do with… 鲜食材,新花样 You will find these special vegetables or vege products in just about any market here. You don’t know them? That’s alright, because they're local. See how Jen Gallogly recognises, picks and cooks with them. 在这座城市的各大菜市场里,你总能找到这些与众不同的蔬菜及制品。以前也许你对它们一无所知,不过这也 不是你的错,因为这些都是土生土长的本地蔬菜。一起看看Jen Gallogly是如何辨认、挑选并且烹饪它们的。

Tai Gu Cai Chinese Flat Cabbage or Rosette Bok Choi One of my favorite dark leafy greens. It is very versatile and can be added raw to sandwiches and salads like a milder version of mustard greens. Tai gu cai can replace spinach in Tomato Florentine soup (then no longer Florentine), but in general we normally just sauté it with a little olive oil, garlic, and finish it off with a squeeze of lemon juice. Choose tightly packed dark green leaves that are unblemished and unbroken. The underneath stems are naturally lighter in color. Preparation: Rinse to remove any dirt, cut off and discard the bottom part of the stalk and separate the leaves. Tomato Soup with Tai Gu Cai Ingredients • Splash of extra virgin olive oil for sautéing • 2 ribs of celery, roughly chopped (about ¼ cup/60g)


• ½ purple onion, diced (approximately ¾ cup/180 g) • 6 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped (little less than ¼ cup/60g) • 11 cups chopped tomatoes (approximately 8 medium tomatoes) • Couple drops of hot sauce (to your taste, my family doesn’t like spicy so I only put 6-7 drops) • 1 Tablespoon/15 ml red wine or balsamic vinegar • 2 Tablespoons/30 ml ketchup • 1 heaped Tablespoon/15 ml dried basil • ¼ cup/60g grated Parmesan cheese • 4 cups (firmly packed) tai gu cai Directions 1. Put a splash of extra virgin olive oil into a large pot, add onion and sauté until translucent. 2. Add celery and garlic, continue cooking until the garlic begins to become fragrant. 3. Add tomatoes and a little salt and black pepper. Allow the tomatoes to reduce down a while and release some of their juice, approximately 5 minutes.

4. Add the hot sauce, red wine vinegar, ketchup and basil 5. Stir thoroughly and allow to simmer for at least five minutes to let the flavours to come together. 6. Place soup in a blender and puree or use an hand blender and puree directly in the pot. CAUTION: In general it isn’t recommended to put hot liquids into a blender, but I always just hold a kitchen towel over top of the lid while I’m blending. I also pull out the insert that is in the lid to release any steam before opening the entire lid. 7. Pour soup into a large serving bowl, add parmesan cheese and stir thoroughly. 8. Taste and make adjustments to seasonings per your family’s taste preferences. 9. Add tai gu cai and stir NOTES: If you don’t have a blender, just chop the celery, onion, garlic, and tomatoes into smaller pieces and skip the blender part.

太古菜 这算得上我最喜欢吃的一种深色绿叶蔬 菜了。它的做法也多种多样,既能直接生着 夹入三明治中也能拌入沙拉里。而它的味道 简直就像是清淡版的芥菜。太古菜也可以取 代菠菜加入到番茄佛罗伦萨汤中(当然,这 同时也会让它失去原有的佛罗伦萨风味)。 而更家常的做法则是加上一点橄榄油和大蒜 将它们用油一煸,再挤上几滴柠檬汁,一盘 美味佳肴就这样大功告成了。 在选材的时候,尽量挑选一些叶片肉质 紧实,叶面干净,完好无损且茎的底部颜色 稍浅的太古菜。 准备工序:先将尘土冲洗干净,再切掉梗的 底部,最后将每片菜叶分开。 番茄太古菜汤 所需食材: 少许特级初榨橄榄油

Lotus Root Lotus root seems like just another white starchy vegetable from the outside, but after it is peeled and cut into slices, it looks like a beautiful white flower or lace. Sliced, it can be served raw on a veggie tray with dip, as well as added to salads. It is also a good choice for stir fries because it retains its crunch. My favorite way to eat it at home is Sweet and Sour Lotus Root or Tang Cu Ou Pian.

两根切好的芹菜 (约1/4杯,重60克) 半个紫洋葱切丁(约3/4杯,180克) 6瓣切片大蒜(比1/4杯稍少,重60克) 11杯切碎的番茄(大概为8个中等个头 的番茄) 几滴辣椒酱(用量当然取决于你的口味 了,我的家人都不喜欢辣,所以一般只放 6/7滴) 一大汤匙(15毫升)红葡萄酒或香醋 两大汤匙(30毫升)番茄酱 满满一汤匙(15毫升)的干罗勒叶 四分之一杯(60克)帕玛森芝士粉 四杯紧实的太古菜 具体步骤: 1.将少许特级初榨橄榄油倒入大平底锅中 预热,放入洋葱,油煸至半透明状。 2.加入芹菜和大蒜翻炒,直至炒出蒜香。 3.加入番茄、少许的盐和黑胡椒,再花大 约五分钟的时间将番茄充分炒熟直至汁液 流出。 4.滴上辣椒酱、红酒醋以及番茄汁,再放 入调味的罗勒。

Directions 1. Fill a pan half full of water and bring it to a boil, add the lotus root and cook until it becomes transparent or the water begins to boil again. 2. Drain water and put the lotus root into a bowl, layering it with the minced ginger and sugar. 3. Add vinegar and then stir to combine all the ingredients

5.将上述原料混合并充分拌匀,炖五分 钟,炖出各种食物的好滋味。 6.将煮好的蔬菜混合物倒入搅拌机中,打 成糊状,或者也可以用浸入式或手持式搅 拌机,在锅中直接搅拌。 小贴士: 一般来说,最好不要将热的液体直 接倒入搅拌器中。每次搅拌的时候,我都会 拿一块厨房毛巾盖在搅拌机顶部,并且在打 开整个盖子之前,会先拔出小盖子,让蒸汽 完全散出。 7.将汤汁倒入一个大菜碗中,加入帕玛森 芝士后充分拌匀。 8.先试一下菜的口味,再根据家人的喜好 调味。 9.加入太古菜后充分拌匀。 小贴士: 如果家中没有搅拌机,你也可以直 接略去搅拌这个环节,将芹菜、洋葱、大蒜 和西红柿分别切得碎一点即可。

它就像一片片美丽的白花瓣。切片后,既可 以蘸酱生吃,也可以加入到各式各样的沙拉 中。将它进行翻炒也是一个不错的选择,这 样可以保持它爽脆的口感。不过我在家时, 更爱把它做成超级好吃的糖醋藕片。 选材时,尽量选取一些肉质紧致、两端 完好,看上去丰满且没有瑕疵的莲藕(正常 情况下,莲藕的表皮上会有一些天然形成的 红棕色小斑点)。 准备工序:将藕的两端切掉并去皮。

Choose one that is firm, still has both ends and seems plump with no blemishes (the skin naturally has small reddish brown specks) Preparation: Cut off the ends and peel

糖醋藕片 所需食材: 已去头和剥好皮的莲藕,切片备用 一片一英尺大小的姜,剁碎备好 三至四汤匙或是45至60毫升的白糖(也 可根据自己的口味加) 三分之一杯白醋

Sweet and Sour Lotus Root Ingredients • 1 Lotus root, ends and peel removed, then cut into thin slices • 1 inch piece of ginger, minced • 3-4 Tbsp/45-60 ml white sugar (or to taste) • 1/3 cup white vinegar

具体步骤: 1.在锅中加一半水后将其烧开,放入莲 藕,待藕片呈透明状或水再度烧开时关 火。 2.将藕片滤水后放置于碗中,再铺上一层 切碎的姜末和白糖。 3.加香醋,然后使其与其他原料充分拌 匀。

莲藕 从外观上看,莲藕和其他白色淀粉类蔬 菜并无两样。但将它剥开切片后,你会发现




豆腐皮并不是真的豆 腐,而是制作豆腐过程中产 生的一种副产品。进一步来 说,它是在煮豆浆的过程中 形成的那一层表皮。因此豆 腐皮拥有了面条般紧致的质 感,并且还透着一种淡淡的 豆香。在制作千层面时,我 干脆就直接用它来代替中间 的面皮。此外,我们家还有 一份深受大家喜爱的咖喱面 条的独家配方。 选材时,尽量选择厚一 点儿的豆腐皮,并且色泽看 上去最好要一致,一般情况 下,从淡黄到偏棕色都算是 不错的。当然,豆腐皮的边 缘部分不可过干。在市场上 选购时,一般最多花六七块 钱,就可以买到三四张豆腐 皮。

Tofu Skin Tofu skin is actually not really tofu, but the byproduct of making tofu, specifically it is the skin that forms when boiling soybean milk. It has a nice firm, noodle like texture with an almost nutty flavor. In particular I use it to replace the noodles in lasagna. My family also has a curried “noodle” recipe that we like. Choose the thicker option of sheets that seem uniform in color, usually a light to medium yellowish-tan, with no dry edges. It shouldn’t be more than 6 or 7 RMB for 3-4 sheets at most markets. Preparation: Cut into the size you need for your recipe with a knife or a pizza cutter. For the curried “noodles” I cut it into 3 inch wide strips, stack the strips and then cut into smaller noodles about the width of your little finger. Curried “Noodles” Ingredients • One sheet of tofu skin, cut into 3 inch strips


• 1 purple onion, diced • 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped or minced • ½ cup water or broth • 1 carrot, diced • 2 ribs of celery, diced (about ¼ cup/60g) • 1 tablespoon/15 ml curry powder • ½ teaspoon/2.5 ml ground cumin • small bunch fresh cilantro, finely chopped Directions 1. In a pan over medium heat, sauté the onion in a little extra virgin olive oil or butter, until translucent 2. Add garlic and cook until garlic becomes fragrant 3. Add carrot and celery, cook for about half a minute 4. Add broth or water and cook until vegetables begin to soften 5. Add tofu skin, curry powder and cumin and continue to cook until broth is gone 6. Transfer to a plate or bowl and garnish with fresh cilantro

准备工序:首先用刀将豆腐 皮切成你所需要的大小。在 做咖喱面条时,我会将整张 豆皮切成三英寸宽的长条,再把这些长条 叠好,切成小拇指那么宽的细条。 咖喱面条 所需食材: 一整块豆腐皮,切成三英寸的长条备 好 一个紫洋葱,切丁 4瓣大蒜,切碎 半杯水或肉汤 1根胡萝卜,切丁 两根芹菜切碎(约为1/4杯,60克) 一大汤匙(15毫升)咖喱粉 半茶匙(2.5毫升)孜然粉 一小份切好的新鲜香菜 具体步骤: 1.放上平底锅,将火力调至中等,用少 量的特级初榨橄榄油或黄油,将洋葱煸 一下,直到其呈半透明状。 2.放入大蒜翻炒直至发出蒜香。 3.放入胡萝卜和芹菜,翻炒大约半分 钟。 4.倒入肉汤或开水,直至蔬菜被完全煮 软。 5.将豆腐皮下锅后,再加入咖喱粉和孜 然,直至肉汤完全被收干。 6.装盘,撒一些新鲜的香菜加以点缀。



I most frequently use a mixture of several mushrooms. I enjoy them in omelets, on pizza, sautéed with some onion in butter and topped with a little parmesan cheese, stuffed, etc. For the recipe below I used shitake (Lentinula edodes 香 菇 xiang gu), white button (Agaricus bisporus 双胞菇 shuang bao gu), oyster (Pleurotus ostreatus 平菇 ping gu), and white clamshell mushrooms (Hypsizygus tessallatus II. Bunapi-shimeiji). My other favourite is French Horn (Pleurotus eryngii 杏鲍 菇 xing bao gu), which due to its firm, meaty texture is a great replacement for meat. Choose clean, firm, and unblemished mushrooms.

在烹饪时,我通常会把不同种类的蘑 菇混合使用。做鸡蛋饼或者匹萨的时候,我 喜欢加一点儿蘑菇,有时还会将它们和洋葱 一起用黄油煸一下,后再撒上一些帕玛森芝 士,还可以做酿蘑菇。在下面的菜谱中我会 用到香菇、双孢菇、平菇、蟹味菇,当然还 有我最爱—被称之为“法国圆号”的杏鲍菇 了,它口感紧实,完全可以与肉媲美。 选材时尽量选用干净,肉质紧致并且完 好无损的蘑菇。 准备工序: 用流水将蘑菇冲洗干净,无需浸泡(如果是 干蘑菇,则需在温水中浸泡几分钟) 通常情况下,我会切掉蘑菇柄最后的那 一小部分,对于那种类似于平菇,伞柄相连 的菌类,我则会去掉它们的相连的那部分。

Preparation: Clean quickly under running water, don’t soak them. (Dried mushrooms should be soaked in warm water for a few minutes) I usually cut off the very tip of the stem or for varieties that are clumped together like the oyster mushroom, the tip of the stump. Mixed Mushroom Soup Ingredients • 1 medium purple onion, diced (1 cup/227 g) • 1 carrot, diced (1 cup/227 g) • 3 medium potatoes, diced (3 cups/681g) • 2 ribs of celery, diced (about ¼ cup/60g) • 1 head garlic, finely chopped 1 pound (1斤 jin) mixed mushrooms sliced or chopped, depending on the type • 6 cups chicken or vegetable stock • 1 Tablespoon/15 ml tarragon • ½ teaspoon/2.5 ml ground black pepper • ¼ teaspoon salt Directions 1. In a large pot, over medium heat pour a little extra virgin olive oil or butter and sauté onions until translucent. 2. Add garlic and cook until it begins to become fragrant.

3. Add carrots and one cup of chicken stock, cook for a few minutes 4. Add potatoes, salt, and pepper, continue to cook for a few minutes, until potatoes begin to soften 5. Add ½ the mushrooms and 3 cups chicken stock (in this case I added the shitake and white button mushrooms first because they are firmer than the other two varieties) 6. Bring to boil and add the other mushrooms, tarragon and the rest of the chicken stock, simmer for 5 minutes. Nutrition varies with the type, but mushrooms in general are low calorie and a source of significant amounts of selenium, riboflavin, niacin, potassium, and pantothenic acid. They are also one of the rare natural food sources for Vitamin D.

什菌汤 所需原料:  一个中等个头的紫洋葱,切丁备好  一根胡萝卜切丁备好  3个中等个头的土豆,切丁备好  两根芹菜切丁  一个大蒜,切细备好  根据你的菜品将什菌切片或切碎备好  六杯鸡肉或蔬菜高汤  一大汤匙(15毫升)龙蒿叶  半茶匙(2.5毫升)黑胡椒粉  四分之一茶匙盐 具体步骤: 1.将大平底锅加热后,倒入少许特级初榨橄 榄油或黄油,将洋葱油煸至半透明状。 2.加入大蒜翻炒直至散发出蒜香。 3.放入胡萝卜和一杯鸡肉高汤,煮几分钟。 4.将土豆下锅,加入盐和胡椒粉,翻炒数分 钟直至土豆变软。 5.倒入一半的什菌和三杯鸡肉高汤(在做这 道菜时,我会先加入香菇和双孢菇) 6.加入其它种类的蘑菇,龙蒿叶和余下的鸡 肉高汤后一起将它们用水煮熟,最后别忘记 再将它们炖上个5分钟。 不同蘑菇的营养成分也不尽相同,但总 的来说它们的热量都很低,且饱含硒,维生 素B2,烟酸,钾和烟酸等物质。特别指出 的是,它们还是少有的能补给维生素D的食 物。




子幼儿园毕业,要进小学了。孩子 会很憧憬,家长会很期待:终于, 孩子又要进入一个人生新阶段了!

Smoothing the Transition

作为家长,要做些什么呢?首先,要为孩子 选择一所最好的学校,其次要帮助孩子做好进入 小学的准备,也就是有一个好的幼小衔接。选择 学校是一个很大的话题,需要另文说明。本文只 对进入学校前的准备工作进行简要描述。


物质准备 ·不烫手的保温水杯,要让孩子养成自己主 动喝水的习惯。 ·大小合适的书包,要根据孩子的学校使用 的教科书规格确定。 ·简洁耐用的文具盒,不要太闹的文具盒以 避免孩子注意力分散。 ·适量的文具,要够用但不多余。 ·运动鞋及备用衣裤,带到学校备用。有的 学校会为每个孩子准备柜子,以备孩子存放相关 物品。

There are many things to consider and plan for when your child moves from kindergarten to primary school. Yunwu Zang, Principal of the Guokai International Department, gives some suggestions to help you and your child prepare and smooth the transition.

技能与习惯准备 这里的技能主要是自理能力,与下述习惯息 息相关。

从幼儿园升至小学,孩子们需要应对许多变化,包括 外部环境及自身习惯。为了让这过渡的过程更顺畅,国 开中学国际部的臧运武校长提出了孩子应准备的四个方 面,供家长们参考。


t some point in your child’s life, they will finish kindergarten and take the next step of attending primary school. The kids are excited while you are busy preparing for another step in their education.

• So as a parent, what do you need to do? First of all, you should choose the best primary school for them and then help them physically and mentally prepare for their new environment. While choosing a suitable school is an important topic, I won’t be covering it in this article.

School Supplies to Prepare • A thermos flask to help them get into the habit of drinking


enough water every day. A reasonable sized school bag to accommodate the various text books they will acquire. A simple pencil case; avoid buying a fancy one as it may distract your child in class. A moderate amount of stationary. Trainers and a spare set of clothes. Some schools will provide an individual locker for each student in which to store their belongings.

Skills and Habits The skills I mention here are mainly about personal care and good habits. Good habits for your child to develop include: tidying their back pack and putting their things away, eating by themselves, dressing themselves, attending class punctually, getting

out of the habit of lunchtime snoozes and finishing school assignments on time. Besides that, they need to be well behaved, remember traffic rules, and be aware of personal safety.

Also, children need to understand teamwork. They have to not only learn how to finish tasks by cooperating with their classmates, but also how to get along with them.

Mental preparation To start with, children need to feel happy and self-confident before starting this new chapter in their lives. Parents should give their child the opportunity to visit and familiarize themselves with their new school, which will lead to them feeling more comfortable when they start classes there.

Finally and most importantly, they have to learn to communicate. Unlike kindergarten, the teachers in Primary school value children who can express themselves and their opinions clearly and confidently.

Secondly, children should learn self-discipline and follow instructions given by their teachers, more importantly they have to learn to be persistent in finishing homework assignments.

Learning Methods Get them to practice paying attention for more than ten minutes. Encourage them to be a good listener and express opinions, develop an interest in reading and critical thinking as well as creativity and task-oriented activities.

Parents should give their child the opportunity to visit and familiarize themselves with their new school, which will lead to them feeling more comfortable when they start classes there.

小学不同于幼儿园,老 师关注的重点不再是孩 子的细微表现,所以有 问题、或不适、或有什 么需求,要主动表达。

习惯包括:整理书包、把东西放回原处、自 己吃饭、自己穿衣、按时作息、取消午睡、按时 完成作业。还有讲究文明礼仪、遵守交通规则、 有自我保护意识等习惯。

心理准备 首先是自信心的建立和对小学的向往。对于 自己选中的学校,要多多参观、感受,甚至是体 验,增强自信。 其次是自制力的培养。能在老师要求时安静 下来、能克服自己的某些欲望而坚持完成自己的 任务等。 再次是合作意识的建立。能与同学共同完成 老师给的任务,而且与同学和谐相处。 还有一个更重要的是善于主动表达自己的愿 望。小学不同于幼儿园,老师关注的重点不再是 孩子的细微表现,所以有问题、或不适、或有什 么需求,要主动表达。

学习能力和方法的准备 注意力保持10分钟以上、善于倾听、敢于表 达看法、看书兴趣、思考力、创造精神、任务意 识等。




When East Meets West

I learned to pick which [Battles] were worth fighting for... they have tried to adjust to what my husband and I want for our daughter, accepting some of my American culture and even embracing it.

Jennifer Raskin shares her experiences in learning to cope with Chinese in-laws.


hen I met and fell in love with my husband, I didn’t think about the details. I loved him and he loved me. What more could we ask for? We got pregnant while living in Seoul. And that’s when our differing cultures began to matter, because he’s Chinese and I’m American. We decided to move to China because he’d said his parents could help us with the baby. I agreed before I knew completely what I was getting into. But despite this, I have never once regretted marrying my husband, or having our precious daughter. His parents are incredibly kind and generous. However, it’s been hard trying to adjust to the differences between us. It’s amazing how wide the cultural and generational gap between us is. Now that my daughter is turning three and just before


my second child is born, my in-laws and I have come to more of an understanding of each other, though early on, there were many battles. I learned to pick which ones were worth fighting for and to try to accept some of their culture. And in turn, they have tried to adjust to what my husband and I want for our daughter, accepting some of my American culture and even embracing it. One of my first battles was about food. I breastfed my daughter, and my mother-in-law surprised me by being completely on board with this. But soon, as with all babies, mine got bigger and was ready for actual food. My daughter is very independent. She likes to do things for herself. So once she got a handle on her utensils, that was it. She didn’t want anybody to help her eat but do it herself. My husband and I watched in absolute glee. Yet my in-laws didn’t think she was eating enough. When they would come over, they would

sit by her and shovel food into her mouth. In my culture, once your child is old enough to feed herself, you let her eat. I finally let go of this particular gripe, partly to keep the peace and partly because it resolved itself. Now when my in-laws eat with us, they’ll let her eat some food by herself while they attempt to feed her some as well. This works out great because my daughter will tell them when she wants to eat the food all by herself. But I refuse to drop the argument regarding discipline. My husband and I are in total agreement about how we should handle our daughter when she’s not behaving. His parents, however, are afraid to punish her when she acts out or wants something she shouldn’t have. When we warn our daughter that we will take something away if she doesn’t comply, we do as we say. My in-laws are the opposite. I know they only want to make her

我学会了有选择地坚持 自己的立场,并在一些 无伤大雅之事上作出让 步。同时他们也尽力接 受我们的教育理念,接 受或有时甚至推崇部分 美国文化。 happy, just like we do. But sometimes their fear of depriving her of something gets in the way and only serves to make her behavior worse. Despite that I personally find it strange that most Chinese people will let their own parents (the grandparents) raise their children, I do think it’s great that children in these families get to know their grandparents and spend time with them. It seems to cultivate a sense of respect for the elders, but in a different way than I’m used to seeing in my home country. It’s amazing how many things are so different between our cultures. We still disagree on many things, from how to dress Raelynn to what I should or shouldn’t eat while I’m pregnant with my second child. But what’s equally as impressive, is watching what happens when two cultures are forced to blend. It’s not always pretty but somehow we manage to make it work for the sake of this incredible little child, who has a hold on all of our hearts.

当洋媳妇遇 上中国公婆 洋媳妇Jennifer将同大家一起分享她和中 国公婆相处的经历。

我和丈夫相遇并坠入爱河的 时候,我并没有考虑太多。 我爱他,他也爱我,所甚何 求?在首尔,我们有了爱情 的结晶。正是从那时起,文化差异带来 的问题才初现端倪,毕竟他是中国人, 而我是美国人。 考虑到公公婆婆可以帮忙带孩子, 丈夫打算搬回中国居住。当时我同意 了,不过丝毫没有意识到即将经历什 么。尽管如此,我从未后悔嫁给我的丈 夫,也从未后悔拥有我们的宝贝女儿。 公公婆婆人都非常好,但想让他 们一下子适应突如其来的中外差异,确 实非常困难。让我吃惊的是,中西文化 的差异,以及两代人之间的代沟,居然 如此之大。现在我们的大女儿快三岁 了,第二个孩子也即将出生,我们之间 的关系没有了之前的紧张,彼此多了不 少理解。我学会了有选择地坚持自己的 立场,并在一些无伤大雅之事上作出让 步。同时他们也尽力接受我们的教育理 念,接受或有时甚至部分美国文化。 最初的问题都是围绕吃展开的。比 如我给女儿喂奶的时候,婆婆竟然全程 都没有回避,让我愣了好大一会儿。再 后来,随着女儿和其他的小孩一样一天 天长大,可以吃一般食物时,新的问题 又出现了。我的女儿很独立,她喜欢自 己的事情自己做。所以当她学会拿碗筷 时,她不想让任何人帮助她吃饭,而是 自己完成。我和丈夫在一旁看着非常高 兴,然而公公婆婆却总是心疼自己的孙 女儿,想让她多吃点儿,因此每次来时 都会坐在女儿旁边,亲手喂给她吃。

受到美国文化的影响,在我看来, 一旦你的孩子能够自己吃饭,就应该 让他自己吃。我最终对此释然,部分原 因是为了家庭和睦,另外,这个问题再 也不用我操心了。现在和公婆一起吃饭 时,除非女儿让他们喂时,才能喂她吃 一点儿,要是女儿想自己吃饭,他们就 是再想喂也没办法了。 但是在纪律问题上我拒绝妥协。 女儿表现不好的时候,丈夫和我的处理 意见完全一致。他的父母则恰恰相反, 在女儿表现不好或者想要她不该拥有的 东西的时候,他们不舍得惩罚她。我们 警告孩子,如果不听话就会没收她的东 西,说到做到。而公公婆婆却不会这么 做。我知道他们只是想让女儿开心,就 好像我们要为难女儿似的。 如果他们只 是一味地溺爱她、顺从她,只会让女儿 的行为更加糟糕。 尽管让父母帮自己带孩子对于我而 言,有点奇怪。但我确实认为,在这样 的家庭里,小孩和祖父母有更多相处的 时间,关系也会随之变得更加亲近,何 乐而不为呢。在中国,这种让长辈带孩 子的方式应该都是出于对他们的尊重, 只是和我习惯的美式育儿法不同罢了。 真没想到,原来中美文化竟然相差 如此之多。对很多事情我们仍持各自的 意见,从女儿的穿衣风格,到怀二胎时 的饮食要求。当这两种文化不得不融合 时所发生的一切也同样让人印象深刻。 虽然整个过程不免会有这样那样的摩 擦,但是出于我们对于孩子的爱,我的 家庭也一步步走到了今天。是孩子把我 们的心都连在了一起。



4 Options for Birthing in China

在华产子 Having a baby abroad is hard. Once pregnant, one of the most difficult decisions for the mother or parents to make is where to give birth to the baby. Ruth Greene interviews mums with different birthing experiences. 在海外生孩子的确不容易,让准父母们最头疼的问 题之一就是:上哪里生?Ruth采访了几个分别在 不同地方生孩子的妈妈,了解她们的经验和想法。


very family’s situation is different, and the choice should be made based on what is best for the family. The mother and father must both be comfortable with their decision, and many factors ranging from finances to work situations to individual personality must be considered. Last issue, we highlighted havingababyinchina. com as a resource to find hospital listings, read real testimonies, and ask questions and have them answered. This time, we’ve gathered pros and cons for the four common birthing options chosen by Qingdao expats as well as testimonies from people who’ve lived them. 每个家庭的实际情况都有所不同,在选择医院时,应该 切合具体情况,综合考虑经济状况、工作条件、个人喜好等 多方面因素,最后找出最佳方案,而且夫妻双方必须达成一 致。 上期的《在华产子不再难》一文给大家介绍了医院信 息,分享了一些外国父母的亲身经验和感受,并解答了相关 问题。本文继续为大家提供一些外籍妈妈在华产子的经历, 并进行了利弊权衡。


PARENTING Working Directly With a Local Hospital Pros • Least expensive (4,00020,000 yuan). • No intermediary. Mother can communicate directly with the nurses and doctors (assuming adequate Chinese language ability). • Mother can choose a hospital convenient to her home and a doctor she prefers. Cons • Requires a high level of Chinese language ability without which appointments and birth experience can be confusing. • Most hospitals will not accept insurance, requiring the mother to pre-pay and be reimbursed by insurance at a later date. • Although birth plans and preferences can be discussed (language ability allowing), the doctor is in charge of

nearly all decisions. Privacy is minimal. Appointments are often crowded. Chinese law does not allow baby’s gender to be known before birth. ·Special permission has to be obtained to allow the father in the delivery room. Not allowed for C-section.

选择本地医院 优点 ·最便宜(4,000-20,000元之间) ·无中介,产妇可直接与医护人员 沟通(如果汉语水平足够好的话) ·产妇可以就近住院,如愿择医

缺点 ·对汉语水平要求较高,如果没达 到相当水准的话,能应对诊疗和分 娩过程相当复杂 ·大多数医院不接受保险,要求产 妇提前付款,之后再通过保险返还 费用 ·虽然生产计划和喜好可以交流( 语言能力是前提),但几乎还是医 生作主 ·隐私较少,诊疗时经常人满为患 ·中国法律禁止在婴儿出生前透露 性别 ·丈夫进产室需要得到特别允许, 不包括剖腹产

Having a baby in China is both rewarding and challenging. For us, praying without ceasing, and surrounding ourselves with friends, family and other parents, kept us sane throughout this journey. - Elisabeth Stathopulo 在中国生孩子是件挑战 与喜悦相辅相成的事。亲朋好 友一直在我们身边,我们也一 直祈祷,最后顺利地迎来了宝 宝。"——Elisabeth

Traveling to Your Home Country • Pros • Familiar language and cultural customs. • Direct Billing available depending on your country and insurance situation. • Availability of birthing and nursing education and support. • Close proximity of supportive family and friends. • Understanding of cultural preferences and birthing styles. • Depending on country, may qualify for government subsidies and advanced medical technology. Cons • Depending on the country, cost of medical facilities may be high. • Due to the flexibility of a “due date”, most doctors want the mother to be located in hospital’s city at least 3-4 weeks before their due date. Finding housing for this time adds an additional cost and inconvenience. • Plane travel adds additional time restrictions and cost. Most airlines will not allow a pregnant mom to travel after a certain

date. Check individual airlines for specific requirements. Husband may not have enough paternity leave to travel with the Mother. Need additional time to secure passport and visa before returning to China.

回国生产 优点 ·熟悉的语言和文化习俗 ·根据国家和保险状况,可直接支付费用 ·获取分娩/育儿指导 ·亲朋好友在身边 ·医生可理解产妇的分娩喜好及方式 ·因国而异,或可以获得政府补贴并享受发 达的医学技术

缺点 ·各国情况不同,医疗费用可能较高 ·大多数医生希望产妇在预产期的前3-4周 能在医院所在城市安顿下来。为此的住房费 用,又增加了经济负担 ·航空机票价格不菲,时间上又要求较严。 大多数航空公司只允许孕妇在一定时间前搭 乘飞机。需要核对各航空公司的具体规定 ·丈夫可能没有足够的产假来陪伴妻子 ·再回到中国时,护照签证等问题又需花费 一段时间

I delivered my second child in my ‘home’ country after having delivered my first in Qingdao. The decision had nothing to do with my experience here, which was positive, but purely to do with timing. My husband had to be in America over the due date, and so we decided to all go. We also were able to do so because we had family we could stay with and a doctor willing to take me. Overall, I had a very similar birth experience in both countries, but I do have to say, I loved understanding everything and being able to freely communicate. I also enjoyed the fact that my post-delivery meals did not include sea cucumber. It was a hassle to come back to China, and it involved having to fly with my son at two weeks to get to a city with an embassy, and then the long flight back to China a week later. - Amy Divinagracia 在青岛生下第一个孩子以后,我回 到祖国生了我家老二。这个决定对跟我第 一次生孩子的经历没什么关系,纯粹只因 为时机。第二个孩子的预产期前后,我的 老公在美国,所以我们决定回国生第二个 孩子。能这么做的另一个原因,是我们有 家人陪伴,而且医生愿意照料我。总的来 说,在两国产子,感觉差异不大,但我必 须得说,能够理解一切并自如跟医生交流 的感觉太好了。第二次产后饮食安排中没 有海参,这让我很高兴。回到中国有点麻 烦,我得先和两周大的儿子飞去一个有中 国使馆的城市,一周后再踏上漫长的旅程 回到中国。"——Amy




I went to Beijing United for the birth of all three of my kids. Basically, I chose Beijing United because I wanted a place where I could communicate well in English. Additionally, I felt comfortable at Beijing United with their ability and approach to respond to any potential complications. Finally, the insurance company covers the cost for Beijing United, so we were happy to enjoy the high level of care at Beijing United. –Cindy Post

Using an intermediary facility such as Bellaire or Chamshan

我在北京和睦家医院生下 了我的三个孩子。总的来说, 选择北京和睦佳医院,是因为 在那里我能用英语交流。另 外,和睦家医院的技术高超, 如果有什么紧急并发症可以马 上处理,我很满意。 最终,保 险公司也帮我们支付了治疗和 生产费用,而且那里的服务和 照顾让我们很欣慰。" ——Cindy

Traveling to a Tier 1 city such as Beijing or Shanghai Pros • English speaking nurses and doctors. • 5 star treatment, including western style room, free latte hour, wide range of dinner options, complimentary candlelight dinner and pedicure. • Direct billing available for some insurance companies. • Supportive of Mother’s specific Birth Plan. • Equipped with wide range of emergency equipment and facilities. • Husband and Baby can “room in”. • Western philosophy of medicine,


style circumcision available by appointment. Close proximity to most Embassies for Passport and Visa Issuance.

Cons • Higher cost than local hospitals (50,000 – 70,000 yuan). • Need to travel away from home and supportive friends. • Due to the flexibility of a “due date”, most doctors want the mother to be located in hospital’s city at least 3-4 weeks before their due date. Finding housing for this time adds an additional cost and inconvenience. • Husband may not have enough paternity leave to travel with Mother.

去北京上海等一线城市 优点 ·医生和护士都说英文 ·5星级护理:西式产房、免费咖啡、多样的 餐饮选择、免费的烛光晚餐和足部护理 ·一些保险公司可直接支付费用 ·支持产妇特别指定的生产计划 ·医院配备完善的紧急器材 ·丈夫和孩子可以进产房陪伴产妇 ·西医理念,可预约进行西式包皮切除术 ·紧邻使馆,方便办理护照或签证

缺点 ·比本地医院贵(5万至7万元) ·无亲友陪伴 ·大多数医生希望妈妈至少在预产期3-4周前 搬到医院所在的城市。在此期间寻找住宿, 又添加了开销和不便 ·丈夫可能没有足够长的产假来陪伴产妇

Pros • English translators available (additional languages may be available). • Direct billing available for some insurance companies. • The translator also acts as a cultural liaison assisting in payments, appointment setup, and birth certificate acquisition. • Clinic often provides transportation to and from the clinic or hospital. • Birth plans and preferences can be discussed, such as skin-onskin contact after birth. • Husband is usually allowed in the room for natural delivery and occasionally for C-sections depending on the situation. Cons • More expensive than working directly with a local hospital (20,000-60,000 yuan). • Although birth plans and preferences can be discussed, Chinese culture places the doctor in charge of most decisions. • All communication is passed through the translator, which might lead to unnecessary fear when a translator neglects to translate during a complication.

Chinese medical practices may be vastly different from the Mother’s preferences, including insufficient pain medication following C-section. Although a translator is provided through appointments and birth, post-birth leaves you with several days at the hospital with limited translation.

We decided to have our boys in Qingdao firstly because we didn't want to have the complication of travelling to another city to have our babies, especially with their two year old big sister tagging along. We later found out our insurance company would only cover our having them in Qingdao. We chose to use Bellaire because they spoke English, and Woman and Infants for the birth because it had the best reputation amongst the expat community. We have mixed feeling about our experience having twins here. –Anna Harrop 我们决定在青岛生孩子,是想避 免去另一个城市的麻烦,尤其还得带 上2岁的大女儿。后来我们发现,保险 公司只能支付在青岛分娩的费用。我 们选择了贝利尔国际医院,因为他们 可以说英文,妇女儿童医院也不错,因 为它在外籍人士群体中口碑最佳。在这 里诞下双胞胎,我们有点百味陈杂的感 觉。——Anna

去岛城本地的国际医院,如贝利尔 或湛山国际医疗等 优点 ·有英文翻译(其它语种翻译也可提供) ·部分保险公司能直接支付费用 ·翻译员也可以协助费用交纳、预约、出生 证明办理等业务 ·医疗机构一般负担从家中至医院往返的交 通费用 ·生产计划和喜好的问题可以沟通,比如产 后的肢体接触 ·顺产时丈夫通常能进入产室,剖腹产情况 的允许时偶尔也可以

缺点 ·比本地医院贵(2万至6万元) ·虽然可以跟医生商讨生产计划和喜好,但 一般是医生掌大权 ·一切沟通交流都通过翻译,若翻译忽略了 某个复杂部分,会引起不必要的恐慌 ·中国的医疗情况可能与产妇的期望不符, 包括剖腹产时可能会有止痛药不够的问题 ·虽然翻译在预诊和分娩时全程陪同,孩子 出生后的几天里,医院配套的翻译服务有限

ISQ - Character Day



Confucius and his descendants have been buried here for the past 2000 years and continue to be buried here today.

A Shandong Road Trip

叶落归根,在过去的2000 年间,孔子及其后裔都被 埋葬了在这片土地里,至 今依然如此。

As spring comes closer, it’s time to get out for some fun family field trips. See what Carrie Quinn-Thorpe has to recommend.

全家出动,畅游山东 春天就要来了,是时候全家总动员出去踏踏青了。让我们跟随 Carrie一家,去看看山东有哪些春游好去处吧!


t was the winter of 2011. I was 7 1/2 months pregnant with our second child and the two-week Chinese New Year break was looming. What to do? Feeling very pregnant and bearing in mind we also had a very active two year old to cater to we began to throw around ideas; Fly somewhere tropical and laze in the sun and sand? Tempting, but too risky. Fly somewhere locally? Too expensive. Staycation? Nah, not really our thing. So we decided to do what families have been doing since the beginning of time and take a ROAD TRIP! Our adventure began on the morning of January 31 when we packed up our car with suitcases, a wide selection of children’s CDs and what seemed like a lifetime supply of snacks, both for the two year old and the heavily pregnant mama Our first stop was Qufu, the home of Confucius. I must admit that although I had heard of Confucius I really didn’t know much about him. Who was he? Why was he so import-


ant in Chinese history? Well, what better time to read up on it than on a four hour car ride to his hometown, all the while singing “The Wheels on the Bus” and “If You’re Happy And You Know It” over and over and over again. Thanks to the help of our trusty GPS we arrived without problem a few hours later at the Queli hotel in Qufu. This hotel was clean, reasonably priced (double rooms from 350元 with breakfast), very conveniently located within the walls of the old town and walking distance to many of the main sites. I would recommend it. We spent the remainder of that day settling into the hotel and getting our bearings wandering around the old town. The next morning we set out to get our Confucius on. Our first sites to explore were the Confucius Temple and Mansions. The Confucius Temple is the largest imperial building complex after the Forbidden City and it didn’t disappoint. Chock-a-block full of beautiful temples and halls it was exactly the traditional Chinese archi-

tecture we were disappointed not to see in Qingdao. Once we had had our fill of temples and halls we ventured over to the Confucius Mansions directly next door. From the Han to the Qing dynasties the Kong family were ennobled and lived like kings, and this maze of buildings and halls attests to it. Both of these sights were well worth seeing and are an easy and enjoyable outing for a family. The following day we headed a few kilometers north of town to the Confucius Forest, the largest artificial park and best preserved cemetery in China. Confucius and his descendants have been buried here for the past 2000 years and continue to be buried here today. This area covers over 200 hectares so we quickly realized we’d need to hop on one of the mini busses inside to park to see much of anything. It is a beautifully treed, grassy park dotted with statues, temples and pavilions. The “must see” being the tomb of Confucius himself, a simple monument which is protected by impressive

stone panthers, griffins and two larger than life guardians. That afternoon we headed back into the old walled town to wander the maze of alleyways and enjoy the local markets, which in themselves make a trip to Qufu worthwhile. The next morning we said goodbye to Qufu and made our way towards the city of Tai’an. After a leisurely drive through the Shandong countryside we arrived at our next destination, the Taishan International Hotel in Tai’an. A non-descript business hotel, it was anything but international. It was clean and affordable enough, with doubles from 300元 including breakfast, but overall the hotel was nothing special nor superbly located. As such, although our stay here was fine, I do not feel the need to recommend it. After getting settled we headed into town and along the way happened upon a lovely little park, colorfully lit up as night fell. It had a small lake and a nice walking path up to a pagoda at the top of a hill; a nice family outing when in Tai’an.


011年的冬天,我肚子里的老二 有7个半月了。转眼春节将至, 我有两个周的假期。该做些什么 呢?在考虑到我当时的身孕,以 及还有个两岁的小顽童要照顾的前提下,我 和老公开始商量这次的度假计划。去热带 的沙滩上晒个太阳?主意不错,但太冒险。 那么就飞到周边的城市转转?不太划算。还 是“家里蹲”?不行,我哪里宅得住。最 终,我们决定像其他家庭一样,来一场说走 就走的自驾游。 1月31日早上,我们开始打包行李准备 出门。打包的时候,为了照顾2岁的小朋友 和怀孕的我,我们不仅打包了一大堆儿歌碟 片,还打包了一大堆吃不完的零食。 旅途的第一站是孔夫子的故乡——曲 阜。我得承认,虽然我对孔子的事迹有所耳 闻,但其实我真的不太了解这位人物。他是 谁呢?为什么他对中国的历史有这么重要的 影响?既然如此,在去曲阜的路上可不能闲 着,多少得读读书了解一下吧,总不能浪费 了这4个小时。在一遍遍的儿歌中,我们一 路来到了曲阜。 在GPS的帮助下,我们顺利到达了曲 阜阙里宾舍。这家旅馆不仅整洁舒适,价钱 适中(双人房带早餐只要350元一晚),而

且位于老城区,交通方便,步行就可以到达 城区内主要景点。我推荐入住这间旅馆。 当天下午我们在旅馆收拾好后,就去 老城区逛了逛。第二天一大早,我们便开始 了“孔夫子之旅”。我们首先参观了孔府和 孔庙。孔庙不愧是仅次于紫禁城的第二大皇 家建筑群,果然名不虚传。与青岛不同,这 里的建筑处处体现着中国古典建筑特色,到 处都是寺庙和长廊。(一开始来青岛的时 候,我们还因为建筑物没有中国古典韵味而 大失所望呢。)看完寺庙和长廊,我们转身 走进了隔壁的孔府。从汉朝到清朝,孔家世 代为官,过着贵族般的生活,从这些华美的 建筑中可见一斑。孔府和孔庙都是值得一逛 的景点,特别适合全家出行。 第三天,我们驱车前往城北的孔林。 孔林是中国最大的人工园林,同时也是保存 最为完好的家族墓地。叶落归根,在过去 的2000年间,孔子及其后裔都被埋葬在了 这片土地里,至今依然如此。孔林占地200 公顷,很快我们就意识到我们得搭乘园区里 的电瓶车才能在里面一探究竟。孔林树木繁 茂、绿草茵茵,雕像、寺庙和阁楼点缀其 间。景区里“必逛”的景点是孔子墓,墓前 有一块简单的石碑,碑前有石狮和石仪守护 着。当天下午,我们回到了曲阜老城,在城 里散步逛街,十分惬意。光是在老城里这样



TRAVEL The next day we drove off to find Tai Shan, one of the most important sacred mountains in China. We put faith in our GPS and found our way, unbeknownst to us at the time, at the entrance at the backside of the mountain. In retrospect this was a good thing as it was significantly less busy than the more commonly used front side. As much as we wanted to hike all 6000 plus steps, being very pregnant with a two year old in tow, we opted for the more sensible, albeit far less adventurous cable car. The views from the mountain are breathtaking and the temples and shrines exude an aura of holiness, which makes the entire experience feel sacred and serene, even amongst the throngs of Chinese New Year visitors.

As much as we wanted to hike all 6000 plus steps, being very pregnant with a two year old in tow, we opted for the more sensible, albeit far less adventurous cable car.

尽管我们很想徒步爬上这 6000多级阶梯的高峰,但当 时我怀着孕,还带着我们两 岁的小家伙,实在是有心无 力。我们只好选择了更为稳 妥的方式——坐缆车上山。

The next morning we decided to stop in at the Dai Temple located in the center of Tai’an. We weren’t expecting anything but special but ended up spending quite a few hours just wandering around this interesting, well laid out, nicely kept temple complex. Worth a visit if you find yourself in Tai’an. After 5 nights away it was now time for us to start heading back in the direction of home. On the way we stopped in at the ancient stone village of Zhujiayu, one of Shandong’s oldest intact hamlets. Wandering down the dusty, old cobbled lanes between the ancient stone buildings truly felt like a step back in time. Many of the buildings contain small and interesting exhibitions about the village, and it is certainly worth a stop if you find yourself in the area.

闲逛,到处走走看看,已经让我们不虚 此行了。 接下来,我们告别了曲阜,前往 泰安。沿途欣赏着山东的田园风光, 我们到达了此行的下一站——泰安泰 山国际酒店。这间酒店虽然名为国际酒 店,实际上却一点都不国际。酒店整体 环境还算整洁,价格也不贵(双人间带 早餐300元一晚),但丝毫没有特色, 地理位置也不是特别优越。尽管我们在 酒店住得还算舒适,但我并不推荐大家 入住。安顿好之后,我们开车进了泰安 城,路上经过一座小公园,在夜幕降临 时,公园被五彩的灯光点缀得非常美 丽。公园里还有一个小湖和一条小路, 小路蜿蜒直上到山上的宝塔。泰安公园 之行给我们一家人留下了美好的回忆。 接下来,我们驱车前往“五岳之 首”——泰山。我们深信GPS会带我们 找到泰山的,一路寻找,我们终于找到 了泰山的山门。后来,我们才知道找到 的其实是后山的山门。现在回想起来, 我们走到后山也许是件好事。毕竟,和 拥挤的前门相比,后山的游客要少得 多。尽管我们很想徒步爬上这6000米 的高峰,但当时我怀着孕,还带着我们 两岁的小家伙,实在是有心无力。我们 只好选择了更为稳妥的方式——坐缆车 上山。泰山顶上风光无限,山顶的寺庙 和神坛散发着神圣的光辉。我们虽然置 身于春节熙攘的游客之中,却觉得这趟 旅程神圣而沉静。 次日清晨,我们决定在泰安的太 庙休息片刻。我们别无所求,只希望能 在这片布局良好、保存完整的寺庙里安 静地走一走。如果你恰巧在泰安的话, 不妨可以去那儿看一下。 在外游玩了5天,是时候启程回家 了。回家的路上我们去了“齐鲁第一古 村”朱家峪。漫步在尘土飞扬的鹅卵石 小路上,看着周围的古石墙,让人有种 穿越时空的感觉。村里的不少房子都举 办一些小型且有趣的展览,向游客展示 着村子的历史。如果你碰巧在这附近的 话,朱家峪的确是个不错的去处。

All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our first ever Chinese road trip. If you don’t have a car to drive yourself Qufu and Tai’An are both easily accessible by train and I would highly recommend visiting both of these places that are practically in our backyard.

总的来说,我们在中国的首次自 驾游非常成功。如果没有车的话,你可 以坐火车前往曲阜和泰安。这两座相 当于青岛“后花园”的城市,真的很不 错,强烈推荐哦!
