Honeymoon Domestic Consultant

From (A great website to learn Mandarin) is an interesting look at a phenomenon that is spreading in China... I would say especially in Shanghai. Young Chinese couples are getting married, but have no clue whatsoever as to how to take care of themselves, so their parents "offer" them a kind of domestic helper/consultant (蜜月阿姨) to make sure they won't ... well starve to death for example, or put their pet in the washing machine, who knows...

You can listen to the 3 minutes dialog below to know a bit more:

街语19 The Word on the Street is 蜜月阿姨 (mìyuè āyí)


Merry Christmas! And happy festive season!
