Hi Guys! When I first came to the L.A area I found it really difficult to find people with similar backgrounds to hang out and have fun. By similar backgrounds I specifically meant people from mainland China speaking Mandarin. Now I have lived here for almost five years and made lots of friends. But I kept seeing people just came here having a hard time adjusting themselves to the culture and life styles here. So I started to think maybe I should do something to help everyone getting used to this new city/country faster. The best way to do it: hanging first with people who came here for a long time from China. Which is the main purpose of this group: gathering people from mainland China together and have some FUN! We also welcome people with DIFFERENT backgrounds to join: people want to go to China, people wanna learn Chinese...etc.
