I am a pseudo/quasi/fake expat in China. Actually, I should look up expat’s exact definition, but I would imagine expats are (1) in China for work (2) might or might not speak the language (3) most likely not Chinese
Well, I am not here for work, but I am here a lot now. I speak/read/write/cuss fluently if situation calls for it. I play dumb and speak normal Californian English when a different situation calls for that. I am Chinese if you ask people in China, but I am not Chinese if you ask people in Taiwan. I do not care what I am as long as I can buy groceries and go to good cafes to enjoy my book.
