The last Friday Roundup for October and the beginning of the Lucky Dumpling Markets!
Welcome to the last Friday Roundup of October. The year is drawing to a close, but we still have a few more activities and events coming up, be sure to keep an eye out in the coming weeks. Although we greatly missed the OzAsia festival this year, it's exciting the see the Lucky Dumpling Markets are still on and will be opening tonight!
Today's Chinese Conversation Corners is part 2 in the series of Chinese Polysemy, or words with multiple meanings. Join us today from 4-5pm to learn more and improve your Mandarin skills.
This weeks image was taken by Diem Nhi Nguyen in Hunan's Fenghuang (Phoenix) Ancient Town, an old town built in the Qing Dynasty, which has kept in its original appearance despite being over 300 years old. Don't forget to send in your China travel images for us to share!
