Ke Makai: an "authentic Beijinger" from the UK
Ke Makai was born in Beijing in 1951. His father is from the UK and his mother is Canadian. For decades, Ke Makai has completely turned into an affable Beijinger with fluent Beijing dialect. Ke Makai still has deep impression on communal living from when he was a child.
