Sandwiched in the Subway: But is Beijing Really that Bad?

OwainLW  Feb 22, 2013 Comments(4)

It’s amazing how quickly China develops. I mean really, even a place like Beijing, with a claim on international city status, still sees new buildings and projects rise up out of nowhere. I want to focus on the subway situation though, and draw on a few highs and lows that the Beijing subway has in comparison with mine back home, that being ... Read More>>

Lolitta2  Feb 22, 2013 Comments(2)

Ugh...everywhere you look, there’s an image of an attractive woman…no matter if you’re on the subway, in a mall, at the airports or magazine stands, watching TV or browsing websites.The female physique is indeed eye-catching and intriguing (especially if half of her boobs are popping out of her skin-tight dress), regardless of your sexual ...

Thought You Were Safe From Fireworks After CNY? Think Again……..

easyrider  Feb 21, 2013

Having only just the survived the festive onslaught which is Chinese New Year I can safely say that it’s an overrated festival for anyone who isn’t Chinese. At least Christmas, although it’s not necessarily a saving grace, has some commercial appeal that makes it a festival for everybody. How noise, more noise, explosions, more explosions, ...

Beijing Blues - Time to Head South?

darkstar1  Feb 18, 2013 Comments(2)

On a flight back to Beijing from visiting a friend in Guangzhou, I really wasn’t looking forward to returning to the world of smog.Guangzhou was warm, greener, and to me, a lot cleaner than the rest of the country. Of course, you can always say that the grass is greener, and perhaps after being in Beijing for such a long time it has taught me ... Read More>>

Spring Festival Gala – It’s all about the Mishaps

OwainLW  Feb 16, 2013 Comments(1)

We all have to admit that the annual Spring Festival Gala thingy on CCTV is a bit of a bore that’s full of sickeningly cheesy skits and shows featuring the same of bunch of underwhelming performers whose acts seem to be based on whether or not the sound man in the background can apply the correct Tom and Jerry-esque sound effect every time an ...

While wondering around Hongqiao airport I engaged in a conversation with the young Joyce, a girl 26 year old girl selling books and language software at gate 26. Initialy it started as any sales pitch, however her need to understand the "Foriegner', over rode the need to make a 10 RMB cut on a 700 RMB sale.Her main point, "Why do all ... Read More>>

Voice of China”’s Jieke Junyi: Need an Image Change?

Coffaholic  Feb 07, 2013

I accidently got sucked into the “Voice of China” craze last year while glued in front of a tv set at a friend’s house. I started watching the talent show – which is based on ‘The Voice’ franchise from the Netherlands – when the contest was already in its final round. Four contestants remained: Wu Mochou (20, female, now lauded as ... Read More>>

The Wonderful World of Chinese Dialects

darkstar1  Feb 06, 2013

My Mandarin isn’t great, but since being here for a few years there’s been one thing that noticed and it’s certainly something I love about being in China – the countless regional dialects. From what I gather, they can be divided into several categories – Yue (Cantonese), Wu (Shanghai area), Hakka, Taiwanese, Hui, Gan,Sichuanese, and of ... Read More>>

Music for the taking - China has its own version of Spotify!

Forgetmenot  Feb 06, 2013 Comments(1)

I already knew about the now world (in)famous Twitter-esque site Sina Weibo because it’s mentioned in the news every day. Even WeChat has come into its own, with industry insiders outside of China praising it is as one of the best apps to come out of the country despite or maybe because of its similarity (and superiority) to Whats App. Then ...

Why Fourth Tier-City Trips are Fun

OwainLW  Feb 04, 2013 Comments(1)

When I was in the north, I took a trip to a little city in Hebei province called Chengde. Chengde is known for being a holiday resort for emperors of old, and features a lovely mountain park area with fresh air and rolling green hills as far as the eye can see. The place also has nice little temples and old (albeit renovated) buildings scattered ... Read More>>

Coffaholic  Feb 04, 2013 Comments(1)

Photo: These asshole child traffickers only represent the tip of the iceberg. Over the weekend I watched an in-depth report about child-trafficking in China, aired on CCTV's news channel. In the programme, a reporter interviewed a number of traffickers who were caught and sentenced. From the prison, the reporter asks them a long series of candid ... Read More>>

A review of Xiangyang, Hubei

Alekobel  Feb 02, 2013 Comments(1)

In the15 months I have been teaching in China I have experienced many cities, afew, very much to my liking, and some that haven't been to my taste. I come from a big and very popular city in America known as Las Vegas. Coming from such a city one would naturally be disposed to metropolitan snobbery when exploring other places and learning of ...

Is Beijing doing enough to end air pollution?

Bumblebee  Jan 31, 2013 Comments(1)

That's no surprise given the fact that PM2.5 readings have spiked well over 500 several times already this month and the elderly and young have been advised to stay indoors.

China’ single kids – My Teaching Traumas

easyrider  Jan 30, 2013 Comments(1)

The one child policy has been in effect for long enough now meaning that many of China’s current young were brought up as single kids. I’ve been teaching a fair while now in China and would like to share some trends that I believed have emerged from being brought up as a single child, which I believe have been developed due to not only having ...

Why Chinese banks absolutely suck!

Bumblebee  Jan 28, 2013 Comments(1)

Warning: this is going to be a rant, but one that is entirely justified. As one of the fastest-developing nations in the world with the most millionaires, you would think that by now, China’s bank system would be highly efficient. But it is not. In fact, all Chinese banks are far from being anywhere close to efficient. Let me give an example ... Read More>>

The Wonderfully Wacky World of Weibo

darkstar1  Jan 28, 2013

So with my Chinese capable to a degree where I think I can read Chinese enough to know roughly what might be going on…if it’s a story book for toddlers…perhaps, I’ve recently been indulging myself into the wacky world of Weibo, and the results have been fruitful to say the least. There’s been a lot of talk as to whether or not Weibo is of ... Read More>>
