Shanghai hospital visit
 
05:00
Shanghai hospital visit. In today's video I attempt to do something they say can't be done: use local services at the hospital. This one isn't so bad, I've heard some straight up horror stories about the hospitals in China. Luckily, I've never had to go to one for something too serious. I go to a hospital in Pudong called Rujin Hospital, to get a prescription for some meds. #thisismylife https://twitter.com/blkgirlintherok https://www.facebook.com/blackgirlintherok/ https://www.instagram.com/blackgirlintherok tags: shanghai hospital visit, going to the hospital in shanghai, going to the hospital in china, chinese hospital, chinese hospital horror stories, going to the hospital abroad, being sick and abroad, filling a prescription in china, prescription medication in asia, hospitals in asia, chinese hopsitals, black girl in china, black girl in the rok, black in asia, black expats.

daily vlog: nanjing fuzimiao, vegetarian food, and talib?
 
06:15
daily vlog: nanjing fuzimiao, vegetarian food, and talib? Hello everyone. Daily vlog time. I went up to Nanjing a few weeks ago for a job interview( shhh...don't tell anyone lol). I went to the Nanjing Fuzimiao, a famous palace out there. It was okay, super touristy and every little thing cost money. I'm not a big fan of palaces and temples to be honest. It's usually just hollowed out walkways and stuff. I'd much rather if they built replicas so we can see what it might have actually looked like back then. I took in a few sites, before heading off to go get a massage, and come back to Shanghai. Nanjing was an okay city I guess. I also went to have vegetarian food at one of my favorite spots, and then went to a flea market to visit my boo Shanel and her boo Betty. Also, I saw Talib Kweli for like the 3rd time in life. He's always a good time. follow me: https://twitter.com/blkgirlintherok https://www.facebook.com/blackgirlintherok/ https://www.instagram.com/blackgirlintherok blackgirlintherok@gmail.com happy buddha: Unit B101, 259 Jiashan Lu, near Shaoxing Lu 嘉善路259弄101号B栋, 近建国西路 black girl in the rok, black in asia, rap concerts in shanghai, shanghai rap, talib kweli, talib kweli in concert, flea markets in shanghai, vegan food in shanghai, vegetarian food in shanghai, tourist stuff in china, nanjing china, one day in nanjing, Nanjing Fuzimiao.

New ISH: http://www.womenshealthmag.com/health/pcos-body-hair Hey everyone! First review up in here. I've always been a Solange fan, she puts out cute listenable music, but I simply wasn't ready to fall IN LOVE with this album. This album is quite possibly one of the most important albums of 2016, especially considering all that's going on in the u.s. This album has a very cool, calm vibe. Think reflecting on a weekend morning, vs turning up on a Friday night. But that's cool, time and place for everything right?

is china dangerous
 
13:36
Hey you all, I’m super excited for my first collaboration video with Keiaradise. We’ve known each other for over a year and it’s a wonder we haven’t linked up to collaborate before. In my video we discuss a question we both get from curious and well-meaning people: Is China dangerous. We get this from everyone and they mama who have never stepped off the block. Well meaning people who just want what’s best for us, without understanding what’s best might not be on American soil. Afterwards, please head on over to Keiaradise to see us discuss reverse culture shock. That pesky and uneasy feeling one gets when they’ve been out of the US (or their home country) for awhile and then end up going back for a visit or to move back.

story time. i lived in a commune. About that one time I lived in an "urban commune" in Brooklyn. Surreal Estate billed itself as some sort of co-working, co-living arts and activist work and living space. At any given time there were 25-30 of us (plus some random travelers and such) who lived together in "harmony." Just kidding, that ish was wild son! sex, drugs, rock and roll, and oh yeah, bed bugs. Here is part one of some of the initial shenanigans. Let me know in the comments if you want more about this experience of mine.

#mesohungry american fast food in shanghai. Shanel and I decided to get our fix of American fast food. Quietly as it's kept, Shanghai does have some decent gems as far as food goes, which really shouldn't be a surprise in a city with 21 million people. As far as the food goes, everything was yummy but I found it odd that cucumbers were used instead of pickles. The burger, priced reasonably at about 30 rmb, was okay.

alternative black girl tag
 
09:25
alternative black girl tag Hey rokstars! LOL, I’mma mess! My very first tag video, we’ve come a long way, eh? Today’s topic is the alternative black girl tag. From a very young age I’ve always been told that I was somehow “different” than other black girls around me. Things like that used to annoy and hurt me, life is bad enough as a teenager as is, without people around you trying to make you feel some sort of way for not fitting into whatever box they want you in. Of course now I don’t care so much about other’s opinions of me, but it’s still a process each day to be true to who I am. Mostly, though, I’ve learned to make my quirks and differences work for me and my lifestyle. If I wasn’t “different” or alternative for instance, I wouldn’t be here in Asia, creating content, writing etc etc. I wish more people would have the courage be themselves with reckless abandon, especially us women. an article i wrote about my black experience: http://the-toast.net/2013/12/17/a-formerly-self-hating-black-chick/ As always, please like, comment, and thumbs up.

drank!
 
04:58
Hello everyone! In this video I hung out with one of my homeboys, Clem! He's a fellow expat that's been here for a bazillion years, and we went to drink some good liquor (none of that fake shanghai mess) at this pirate themed rum bar. Good times were had! I've been making a conscious effort over the last month or so to make new friends in the city. Shanghai is a very dynamic city that I don't see much of to be honest.

pumpkin carving at colorjam

Hey everyone. The new jobby job sent me and my coworker Judit to go pumpkin carving at Colorjam, a studio that does art therapy for adults and children. I've never carved a pumpkin before and don't know if I'll ever be doing it in the future lol. It was quite messy and labor intensive, but I know why children like it, and how it might be cute for a family during the holidays. Nevertheless, it was nice to do something different and festive.

natural hair woes
 
03:30
To cut or not to cute that is the question. I've been toying with the idea of cutting my hair for quite sometime. For a long time i was against it, because for years I didn't know how to take care of my hair properly. So as I started getting more into natural hair, i was desperate to grow a healthy head of it. Now that I've achieved that however, having long hair isn't much of a priority. follow me: https://www.instagram.com/blackgirlintherok/ tags: black in asia, getting your hair cut in china, black hair care in shanghai, black hair care in china, black hair in china, natural hair in asia, being natural in china, black and abroad, black expat, expat life in china, tapered hair on natural hair.

iron mic anniversary: melanin on fleek

iron mic anniversary melanin on fleek Hey yall, I found myself at a rap battle/concert at Shanghai's The Pearl. Even though I don't know the language, it was great seeing the performances and seeing the influence of black American culture way out here. The real draw for me however, was Jessica Care Moore. A fellow midwesterner, I've never seen her perform and this weekend she was in town for a festival and this performance. It was amazing, afterwards we took a picture and she signed her book for me! Her book reminded me how good poetry can be. When I was younger I used to be big into spoken word and poetry, and then a few years ago, my writing and tastes changed and ever since I've been on a memoir trip. It was a great performance and a night filled with creativity. I'm glad to have these experiences in Shanghai. last video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fx4lDe0yz9w Follow me on social media: https://twitter.com/blkgirlintherok https://www.facebook.com/blackgirlintherok/ https://www.instagram.com/blackgirlintherok tags: shanghai, shanghai nights, hiphop, jessica care moore, catch me if you can, the foundation shanghai, shanghai hip hop, chinese rap, iron mic, iron mic shanghai, shanghai battle rappers, rapping, rappers in asia, asian rappers, sunlight through bullet holes, moore black press, black in china, expat life, black in asia, black girls rok, black girl in the rok.
