To enrich international students’ cultural experience and to extend season’s greetings to them, the Department of International Postgraduate Education organized a dumpling-making activity in the morning of December 30th.
Dumpling, also called Jiaozi, is regarded by many Chinese people as the favorite food. Making jiaozi during New Year is a tradition, especially for the people in northern China. Jiaozi was allegedly invented by Zhang Zhongjing, China’s medical sage. As the shape of Jiaozi is like ancient Chinese gold or silver ingots, it also symbolizes wealth.
