Personality:Annshi is a bright and very cheerful woman, very welcoming, and fun-loving. Though being incredibly old, she acts nothing like her age—being rather childish however; she can be very motherly and can take serious matters in a mature way-- she can be a bit sly and is a very observant person. She has a very serene and perhaps, simple personality; she tries to please all parties involved to try to avoid conflict at all costs. She is easily flustered. Annshi is also quite the workaholic, burying herself in tasks big and small in order to ensure the happiest for her boss, China, whom she is very protective and defensive of. She is not easily frightened and often takes things on the positive side. Annshi is quite the party animal, occasionally drinking and loves festivals and celebrations. She silently complains how the world has changed and on historical days, is painfully reminded of the past.
She loves many things, particularly food, flowers, and culture. She is slightly tomboyish but will be willing to wear extravagant and beautiful Chinese clothing. She dislikes conflicts and values family and friendship greatly. She is quite the virtuous one, often citing proverbs and reminiscing of the great ancient past. She is capable of many things such as negotiating, business, gardening, music, combat, swordplay, various sports, singing, dancing, acting, art, cooking, etc.

Possible Faceclaims
Appearance: Annshi has a bit of a fox-like face with endearing dark-brown eyes and small, defined lips. Her dark-brown hair, which ends in a single curl, is tied with a a jade or regular hairband. She sports a red and gold-trimmed qipao with dark brown trousers with tights, no tights, or light-beige bandages wrapped around, and black Chinese slippers. She wears red jade earrings and a green jade bracelet which is hidden by her long sleeves. She possess a fairly average, if not a bit thin, frame. She possess a slight hourglass figure and small hands and feet. Overall, she's a rather petite person. Her skin is slightly tanner than Yao's, being that she spends more time outdoors fulfilling her duties.

(( < hindsight: sorry this is so long OTL >

oh it's fine! sorry im not very active in general bc of school and finals T v T 
Ooh, that's cool :33 

As for what is done, typically Chinese Buddhist temples have the same customs as the ones in South East Asia. The only differences would probably be the words said during prayer/what to say when you meet a monk. ( I'm not entirely sure what specific thai customs there are for temple etiquette , so i do apologize if i say something incorrect/correct me!) Also, most Chinese temples involve Tibetan Buddhism.

But for the most part: always take off your shoes before entering. Bow before you enter the temple.

If you want to be more elaborate, when you're at the doorway there's a certain hand gesture that you use which is when you put both your palms facing up (right over left palm, your left hand should be touching your right knuckles) and both thumbs tucked on top-- your hands should be at about your tummy area. Then you put your palms together in front of your chest, then the most complicated one is doing the "crown" hand position in front of your forehead which is kind of hard to explain (and idk if you already know it/if thai temples do it, etc) but if it's your first time then you don't really need to. Also the three hand motions go really fast so you can just skip it altogether and bow. 

Dress modestly, cover shoulders, have lower clothes hems below the knees. I'm not sure if this is true but the deal about feet pointing towards people is not a big deal here so that's okay. When you see a monk outside of the actual temple, typically you bow with your hands in prayer position and say, "Shīfù, hǎo" which means "Hello, Master" and carry on (but i guess you don't really need to do that idk adfsglkl). We typically do chants that are sung with a bell or gong (sometimes you walk slowly around the room chanting in a single-file line), meditation to ringing bells, and sometimes we just listen to people talk about Buddha and the disciplines, etc. At a certain point you'll need to do full-on bows, and the thing about Tibetan Buddhism is that the bowing involves getting on your knees, kneeling down, and having most of your upper body on the pew (the cushion things) with your palms facing down, then facing up (one at a time, right hand first) and you always get up with right hand first, then left. 

okay sorry that was just a huge wall of text, also sorry if this is not what you were asking for ; v ; but it's really nice and amazing that you want to check it out; bless. if i ever visit a thai temple i will ask you for guidance ~ ))
