In 2019, Liang Wenbin, who had just graduated from high school, was deeply confused about what to do in the future, and with the recommendation of a friend, he learned about the opportunity to study in China and decided to leave after passing the interview.

At first, Liang Wenbin was not used to suddenly stepping from the "summer" of Malaysia to the "autumn" of Xi'an. But soon, after the winter, the city was deeply attracted to Liang Wenbin, who had never seen snow before, "Seeing snow may be the most shocking thing in the 22 years since I was born." To this day, Liang Wenbin, who recalls the snow scene, still sighs repeatedly, "It's really beautiful, the white scene is really beautiful." ”

"I also did something that I thought was stupid, but there may be many people who have done it, which is to jump into the snow and 'swim', do swimming in the snow, and post on Moments for this." Liang Wenbin said with a smile.

At the same time, from the use of mobile phone payment at night market stalls, low-cost and efficient takeaways, to the ubiquitous power bank rental service, Liang Wenbin's convenient details of life in China have also opened his eyes. Liang Wenbin said that similar services exist in other countries, but they are far less convenient and routine than in China.

"My original diet was relatively light, but after coming to China, I like to eat spicy tang and hot pot and other 'heavy flavors', and what shocked me is that there is actually hot pot takeaway in China, and the merchant will really send a pot." Liang Wenbin laughed that the convenient and affordable takeaway service here made him discourage the idea of cooking by himself, and trying Chinese food became Liang's ultimate goal.

While in Malaysia, Leong learned a little bit about China's rapid socio-economic development. However, after arriving in China, he said that his first impression of "China speed" came from online shopping.

Liang Wenbin said that when shopping online in China, the return and exchange of goods, the logistics time is no different from the experience of offline shopping, but in Malaysia, there will be no free shipping, and the exchange will have to wait an extra week or two. "So I'm very surprised by China, and I'm very satisfied, I like it very much."

On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the Belt and Road Initiative, Liang Wenbin, as an international student who has lived in China for several years, also has his own understanding of the Belt and Road Initiative. "From my personal point of view, whether it's economic or cultural, China is helping other countries to develop." Liang Wenbin believes that his opportunity to study in China is due to the achievements of the "Belt and Road" construction, in addition to educational resources, he also sees a series of help from China, such as trade resources and service resources, which are gradually changing the "Belt and Road" countries, and the lives of people in various countries are also benefiting and changing.

Now, Liang Wenbin plans to stay in China for a few more years, where he can learn as much as he can and improve his work experience, professional skills, etc. "Of course, I also hope that I can bring the skills and knowledge I have learned back to Malaysia, make a modest contribution to the development of my motherland, and achieve a small goal in the context of the joint construction of the 'Belt and Road'."
