Today was my first day in the office, filled with mundane tasks like filling out seemingly endless pieces of paper, meeting executives, opening a bank account (more paper), etc.

The big surprise, however, was the discovery that following a week-long national holiday, tomorrow, Saturday, is a “rollover” work day!

I’m used to the concept of a “rollover holiday” when you get to take a Monday off if a national holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday.

But I’ve never encountered the concept of having to come in on a weekend (normal office hours are Monday to Friday) following a long holiday – hey, it’s not my fault!

I don’t mind, actually, since I’ve just started but this will definitely go down as a “this is China” moment.
