please do not let politics be the reason why you're ignorant

(let’s just try and put politics aside for now cuz the focus is on China and it’s cultural history,how much it has improved over the years ,how they have their modern innovations and still remember their beautiful past.)

(edit:my answer is super long because it’s hard to put my feelings into words and I’m sorry for being long winded but you can just look at the pictures and scroll all the way to the bottom,the last two to three paragraphs are kind of like a mini summary ‍♀️:) you can leave questions for me too if there’s anything you want to know about the country or the culture,I’ll love to answer them!!and I’m so sorry if what I’m writing sounds repetitive to you because I was trying my best to put those feelings into words and as you guys can probably tell,it definitely wasn’t easy at all)

yes,a lot.

别政治让你变得无知。我们不管政治,把关注点放在中国和它文化史,它这些年取得了多大的进步,他们如何取得现代创新的同时,仍然记得它美丽的过去。

(我的回答非常长,因为这很难用文字表达出来,非常抱歉我这么唠叨,但你可以只看图片并下拉到底,最后两到三段是一个小总结...下面还是作者强调,文章会很长,中国变化很难全部用文字表达出来,就不翻译了。)

在访问中国之后,你改变的对中国的看法了吗?我的回答是:是的,非常大。

i went to China in 2017 as an 11 year old kid who didn’t have very good impressions of the country prior to that. as a Cantonese,(edit:I’m a Singaporean Chinese,my grandfather came from guangdong so I’m of Cantonese descent:) ✨)I grew up watching Hong Kong dramas and mainland China would forever be portrayed as a poor village or a rural area.this was how I’ve always viewed the country,as a kid,I also heard about those “stories” where you get abducted easily in China,there are many scammers in China and how their public toilets do not have doors to them,how their people are mean,rude and nasty.and then baby me trusted whatever the adults said.

i went to China with my school,not my family.yes we went to tourist attractions and fancy fancy restaurants and luckily enough,we visited a school and a car factory. it was beautiful.the tourist attractions we visited were mostly historical relics and there was a different beauty to it,sure,it’s not modern beauty but it’s unique in a certain way,and there were many fascinating stories of the people from the older days. it’s a country with 4000 years of history,a country with a really really fascinating and complicated history,so many so many stories of people of the past and how great China was back in the days.

我2017年去的中国,当时我11岁,在此之前对这个国家的印象并不好。作为广东人的后代(我是新加坡华人,我的祖父来自广东,所以我是广东人的后代)。

我从小看港剧长大,中国永远被描绘成贫穷的村庄或农村地区。我一直这样看待中国,当我是个孩子时,我还听说中国有很多骗子,小孩子很容易就被拐卖,那里的公共厕所没有门,那里的人是吝啬的,粗鲁的,恶毒的,作为孩子的我相信这一切大人们说的话。

学校带我们一起去的中国,我们去了旅游胜地,豪华餐厅,幸运的是,我们参观了一所学校和一个汽车工厂。它们非常漂亮。我们参观的旅游圣地大部分都是历史遗迹,虽然它们不是现代建筑,但是它们有独特的美,并且还有很多传自古时候的人文故事。它是一个拥有4000年历史的国度——真的,真的很迷人很复杂的历史,如此之多人文典故,当时的中国有多么的伟大。

it’s beautiful,at least in the eyes of mine

they weren’t taken with cameras of the best quality but I think you might be able to feel something just be looking at the pictures,the story behind them that definitely cannot be explained in a few words.

(I’m sorry I was too young back that to actually have the consciousness to take beautiful pictures so these were taken by my teachers :))

yea it’s filter-less but I’m sure without the filter,through the screen,you can see the country’s beauty.it’s the peacefulness that attracts me,how everything seems so simple yet so complicated and beautiful at the same time.you can tell from the pictures that there’s a long long story to it.now that I’m looking back at this,I feel like I can imagine how glorious China was back in the days,how strong and mighty and beautiful they were.

there’s a different beauty to all these places and I’m not sure if you guys can see it but I can and I could. as a Chinese,it wasn’t very hard for me to finally see a different side to China 5 years ago. as a young girl,I was taken aback by everything.

至少在我的眼里,它是美丽的。

这些照片并不是用非常好的相机拍摄,但看这些图片,你应该能感受到它们背后的故事三言两语是说不清的。

是的这张是无滤镜的,但是我相信,没有滤镜,通过屏幕,你可以感受到这个国家的美丽。正是这种平静吸引力我,这一切是怎么看上去如此简单,又如此复杂,同时又如此美丽。通过图片,你可以看出它拥有很长的历史,现在我回看这些,我可以想象当时中国有多么辉煌,多么强大,多么美丽。

看看这些地方,每个地方都有自己不一样的美丽。我不确定你们能否看出来。但是我可以,作为一个华人,看见一个不一样的中国并不难。作为一个年轻女孩,我被中国的一切所震惊。

I’m sorry to have to ruin these pictures like this.anyway,I really liked the vibes of this picture in the calligraphy room,the beauty of Chinese indeed.

i don’t even think you have to understand the words to see the beauty in it

it has that very peaceful thing to it,beauty in peace eh and look at the colours of the school !! how pretty !!i would have loved to go to a school this pretty !!

after this photo dump,what I’m trying to say is that China is not what we all remember them to be.the country has really improved a lot and it’s very very modern now !! while keeping the beauty of their history in them,they’re advancing in technology as well!! as they embrace their culture,they’re moving forward.

there’s literally no one using cash nowadays,all using their e wallets,yes even the elderly and the young children.there’s technology everywhere(I’m not gonna show u pics cuz of copyright and all that hehe)like you go the supermarket and you do the self check out,you stand in front of the machine and wait for them to recognise you through your eyes and then deduct money from your wallet.you look at all the robots serving you,being your tour guides.

你无需理解这些汉字,就能看出这其中的美。(指的是一张书法作品),它里面蕴含中一种宁静,一种宁静之美。

看看这所学校,多么漂亮,我很愿意在这种学校上学。

看了这么多图片,我想说的是中国并不是我们记忆中的样子。中国进步巨大,非常非常现代。在保护历史文化的同时,科学技术也在进步。

这里几乎没有人用现金,所有人都用电子钱包,甚至是老年人和小孩子,这里的技术应用广泛,例如你去超市做自助结账,你只需站在机器面前,通过瞳孔认证,钱就会自动从你的电子钱包中扣除。我可以看到机器人在服务你,成为你的导游。

this is the amazing part of China,and I saw the beauty in their history myself when I was there and started being interested in their culture,thus knowing about the technological advancements.

Well yeah,everybody else out there probably don’t want to visit China because of propaganda and all those politics,resulting in people being biased.yea it’s hard but all I ask of you is to keep your mind open and before coming to judgements,take a look at the country yourself,visit China yourself and you’ll probably be mindblown (cuz I don’t know which culture has a history as long as theirs and also because of your originally biased mindset:))

I really hope you see the beauty in the country,it’s not the country from the 1970s anymore,they’ve advanced in every way possible and they’re no longer just a 3rd world country.(especially in the developed cities)they are doing great and they’re definitely more that that already and I’m forever proud to call myself a Chinese

这是中国了不起的地方,当我在那里的时候,我体验到他们历史的美丽,开始对他们的文化产生兴趣,从而又了解到中国技术上的进步。

诚然,有的人并不想访问中国,因为那些政治宣传,导致人们有偏见。可能有些困难,但我对大家的期望是保持开放心态,在做出判断之前,自己去看一看这个国家,去参观一下这个国家,你可以会大吃一惊。

我真的希望你们能去看看这个国家的美丽,它再也不是70年代那个国家了,他们在每个方面都取得了进步,它不再是第三世界国家(特别是在发达的城市)。

他们做的非常棒,他们不止于此,我永远自豪地称自己为中国人。
