Date: 2019-02-13

In June 2017, “Meng Meng” and “Jiao Qing” left their hometown China for Germany. What about their lives there? What wonderful stories have they witnessed there? Let's take a look.


I. Witnessing the Chinese Cultural Festival


From July 6 to 9, 2017, the Chinese Cultural Festival was held at the Panda Garden in the Berlin Zoo in Germany. At the corner of the playground for “Meng Meng” and “Jiao Qing” , the Zoo prepared a variety of Chinese snacks and traditional Chinese music performances for visitors. In addition, they connect bamboos with traditional Chinese handicrafts culture, exhibiting lots of hand-woven artworks, such as bamboo lanterns, bamboo baskets, bamboo fans and bamboo-woven sleeping mats. Through the giant pandas and bamboos, German visitors can learn more about Chinese culture.

IV. Two Birthday Parties


 “Meng Meng” and “Jiao Qing” were both born in July, the midsummer, so on their birthdays, the keepers from China and Germany carefully prepared birthday cakes for them, celebrating their first birthday in Germany respectively.





Although their lives in Germany seem to be ordinary every day, the meticulous care of the keepers makes it possible to witness some little but warm-hearted things. Hopefully, with these, the life of “Meng Meng” and “Jiao Qing” will be smoother and happier.
