Fun fact— “blether” is a Scottish term that means to talk on and on about things without any substance behind one’s words; one of my Scottish tutors had taught me this during my first month at the Edinburgh College of Art.
Fun fact #2— There was also only one native Scottish person in my class at ECA; the vast majority of us were not even from the UK at all.
Fun fact #3— I barely know a lick of Chinese. I used the mighty powers of Google Translate + one of my dear friends who does know Mandarin to confirm Mei Ling and Xizi’s words to each other.
