Say Hello

Rumor has it Facebook, Twitter, and most other social media outlets that I am, or will most likely become, addicted to are blocked by the Great Firewall of China. So, this blog was started as a way to stay in touch while I go into a forced rehab. Feel free to email for more personal messages to my (oh so originally named) email account:

If I am clever and/or persistent enough to find a way to access Facebook, those of you who know me, will know! Obviously. For (somewhat frequent) picture updates, you can find me on Instagram: @Rshanghai. You’re also more than welcome to follow me on Twitter: @ReneevanDiemen. I must warn you though: I barely use it so there really isn’t much point.

    Sooo, I’m kind of massively in love with this blog of yours and approve of your membership of the blogosphere. (Also love the frequent updates, please continue to do so, so that I can keep tabs on you, otherwise you might get angry messages from me on here demanding updates <3) I wanted to skype with you today, but I was in the kitchen over 12 hours today. Woohoo for graduation celebrations and another 8 hours (at least) in the kitchen tomorrow. But my god is the food yum! I'll send you recipes at some point to try out (especially the lemon tartlets i made because they are just exquisite). And yes – I PROMISE i'll get evernote once this graduation hassle is all over.


    And I think you should also watch this: (that is if you haven't seen it already)

    I miss you. I hope you have an amazing time in China and a safe journey over there. Also, whatsapp me if you have time. Mine was down all of today for some stupid reason, but now I have it up and working again.

    Shouldn’t you learn english properly before you learn chinese?

    Hi Renee,
    Zo te lezen gaat alles goed en
    heb je het naar je zin. Shanghai is erg veranderd in de laatste 8 jaar en het moet zeker intressant zijn nu je het als een volwassen mee maakt.
    Ik hoop dat je leuke medestudenten in je groep hebt. Veel plezier en je kunt me altijd bellen of kom langs voor een kopje thee :-)

      Haai Diny! Ik heb het hier erg naar mijn zin, Shanghai is nog steeds een giga leuke stad! Ik ben van plan dit weekend een beetje langer door de stad te slenteren om alles wat beter te ontdekken nu dat ik helemaal ben ge settled. En dank je wel, ik zal gauw eens een keer bellen om langs te komen voor thee :D
