An jolly day – my farmhouse stay in Dajing Township

2011-12-20 | Life in Guilin | Comments(0) |   Views:(236)

"A big family pork feast for the New Year" has been being the traditional customs in China  since the ancient time. In the past decade, it seemed that life of more and more Chinese was invaded by restaurants, but in recent years it is becoming the order of the day that companies and businessmen gather their stuff and partners to have an authentic pork meal at some suburb of their cities at the end of the year, creating a chance of non-working communication or of discussion about further development and cooperation in the coming year.

November in Guilin was surprisingly lovely this year. I guess it realized that it’s annual harvest time of our taros and sweet potatoes in Lipu, which is about 105 km away from downtown Guilin. The interesting experience of harvesting and the delicious taros and sweet potatoes of last year still engrave on everybody’s mind, so all of us were full of enthusiasm when hearing it’s the harvest time again! Thanks to the convenient road network, 1.5 hours’ drive is enough to take us from Guilin to the farmland near the Silver Cave in Lipu County.

In China, a widely known saying goes that “Food is the first necessity of the people”. It is true and it is not difficult for foreigners who have ever been to China to find the variety of Chinese food, especially dishes. For new comers, Chinese dishes which are usually seasoned with all kinds of condiments are probably far away from being easy to cook. But if you pay a little patience, you will find that is not an arduous challenge at all. So how about making your first step of becoming a chef of Chinese dishes with us?

The Five Great Mountains of China

Yet another aspect of traditional Chinese culture I find myself completely enthralled by is ancient Chinese religion and philosophy. With a history as long as China’s, there’s little wonder how such a wide variety of colorful belief systems and practices have manifested over the ages and embedded themselves in the heart of traditional society. To be sure, each has taken shape in popular culture in their own distinct way and offer unique perspectives on the Chinese way of life, although the philosophic doctrine I seem to personally resonate with is Daoism (or Taoism).

Weizhou Island

As an avid traveler I find great joy living in a large country like China. With an incredible variety of terrain and an equally diverse cultural landscape, the amount of traveling possibilities is seemingly endless. While I certainly cannot claim to have been to even half of the more famous cities and sites, I have at least been to some of the key regional destinations such as Beijing in the north, Chengdu in the west, Shanghai in the east, and of course, Guilin in the south. However, of all the locations I have personally traveled to in China, my favorite is probably the least known of all: Guangxi Autonomous Region’s Weizhou Island (涠洲岛).
