As reported by the Chinese media, the sisters are experiencing problems with adaptation in their new home at the research base for giant Panda breeding in Chengdu.
Write that Panda twins prefer the Western way of life. They refuse to eat traditional Chinese food, such as boiled corn, and require American cookies. They are trying to break these habits, but so far in vain. In addition, Mei LUN and Mei Huan do not understand the local Chinese dialect and only respond to basic commands in English.
