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>>

What's wrong with this picture: new subway lines open up, subway becomes MORE crowded?

NiceBrice  Jan 25, 2013 Comments(1)

So I can't speak for commuter traffic in other cities (other than my brief time in GZ), but in Beijing, morning and evening rush hour subway rides have become unbearably crowded in the past month or so. What's weird about this situation is that the city just opened a bunch of new lines/extensions, which one would expect would make travel more ... Read More>>

Native English Speaker

rissyg23  Jan 23, 2013 Comments(6)

I have taken it upon myself to write this blog to address those who have misconstrued this very self explanatory term.

Music of the East

easyrider  Jan 23, 2013

I'm at a bit of a loose end.Right now its the awkward time between morning and afternoon lessons - a two,sometimes three hour break depending on my afternoon schedule where I could easily do something productive but instead choose to spend the time fittingly in front of a computer screen, the once keen young brain slowly shifting itself into ...

Bargaining Chaos in Beijing Market

darkstar1  Jan 21, 2013 Comments(2)

I consider myself a very calm, collected guy. Well, most of the time. I’m actually pretty proud that out of many of my expat friends, I’m the one who complains the least about the apparent frustrations that China can present us. I thought I had it covered; the crowds, the pollution, the spitting, I had mentally trained myself not to get riled ... Read More>>

Importance of getting quote for shipping from China to Africa

fucellen  Jan 15, 2013 Comments(1)

Since you can ship from China to many countries of Africa, like South Africa, Nigeria, now let’s ... Read More>>

Is the Curse of Crowd Mentality to Blame for China's Subway Chaos?

Bumblebee  Jan 15, 2013

Before, I always thought the fact that people don't wait for subway commuters to get off first before rushing on, was just blatant stupidity and ignorance. But this view may have been a bit short-sighted. This morning, I stood in a neat line by the subway platform behind an elderly Chinese man. When the train arrived, I was amazed to find that ...

Air pollution part II: Buying a face mask

NiceBrice  Jan 15, 2013 Comments(1)

What can I say, I didn't want to leave the house this weekend, and I really didn't want to spend the money. But my morning commute to work on monday changed my opinion (the somber "oh god I'm going to ... Read More>>

The Musical Goldmines of Chinese Dance Bars

easyrider  Jan 14, 2013

I’m a bit of a party goer, guilty as charged. After a long hard slog at the school teaching I like nothing better than to head down town and have a beer or five, and if I’m with a big group of friends, I’ll even try and make it to a dance club if possible. Chinese clubs, as I’m sure we all know, can vary in quality and clientele. The scale ... Read More>>

This Air Pollution is really bumming me out...

NiceBrice  Jan 11, 2013 Comments(1)

Only a month or so ago did I discover the US embassy's Air Quality Index (which, to my understanding basically indicates how fast Beijing's air is going to kill me) and it's been freaking me out ever since...When I first got to Beijing in September (I started in Guangzhou and then was promptly moved), I didn't really notice the hazy skies or ...

Unforeseeable Frolics in the Gym

All Go at the School Talent School

easyrider  Jan 09, 2013 Comments(1)

Having been in China for long enough now I know that daily encounters of events both strange and amusing,intriguing yet frustrating, are nothing out of the ordinary. This was reinforced only the other morning when, upon teaching my students the present perfect grammar (have you ever…), and consequently being asked “teacher, have you ever cooked... Read More>>

Chicken feet and fish head, delicious or disgusting?

In Canton where I am living now, we have two popular dishes : Chicken feet and fish head, to be honest once we see these dishes on the table we get excited! However, foreigners always look at these dishes with a look of horror , “oh hell, am I supposed to put that into my mouth? ” I can ... Read More>>

Amazingchina  Dec 20, 2012

Buying a Knife in Beijing is Not as Straightforward as One May Think

Bumblebee  Dec 19, 2012 Comments(1)

A good knife makes all the difference in the kitchen. And while living in China, where we really need to push ourselves to actually use our kitchens at all, every little incentive helps. So that's why, after months of using a semi-blunt knife to painfully mutilate vegetables and meat with, I finally decided to drop a little cash for something ... Read More>>
