Festive Fatness Intermediate PREMIUM

"Freshman 15" is an expression commonly used in the United States and Canada that refers to the 15lb of weight gained during a student's first year at college. We asked ourselves, is there a similar saying in Chinese. We found one in relation to the weight gain experienced after Chinese New Year. Rather than 15lb, it is 3斤 which is about 1.5kg or 4pounds. Tune in to find out how they got this festive fatness. Photo by 紫流
