|Talk to him about it...|
Maybe for him its normal to go dutch, some (many) foreign girls feel bad when the boy pays everything...
Oh and to the stuff you bought. Did he say that he wants it? I know many chinese girls want to take care of their husband/boyfriends and buy him stuff when he actually doesnt want it (my wife does the same...) But i told her already that it is her choice to buy me the things, i didnt ask for it.
Then please answer me the question: Why did you buy him the stuff?
Because you love him or because you want that he buys you stuff too?
But please dont be just angry with him... really talk to him about it. (dont judge him, dont shout,... just talk and explain how it is in china. That he is here a guest and have to accept how things are done here, and chinese can be good host and accept things a foreigner think is normal you need to find the balance in your life)

In China, most wives hold the purse strings and the husbands give almost all their income to the wives.

I will give my salary to her and let her keep it if she asks. Once she suggested that we open an joint account and that we both deposit a certain percent of our salary regularly. The money will be our "family fund". And I am responsible for house rent, broadband fee, water and electricity charges etc. She is responsible for ou...
It sounds good. Many Chinese young couples do this too.
