Blogs : 13david commented on surenpillai 's blog Which English? Which accent?

Don't agree pingsay. I have a Chinese wife who was thankfully taught in a Chinese/ English school. I probably wouldn't have looked at her if she had been taught American english. My Australian friend in Korea isn't the most sought after with his Australian accent. The Koreans want Americans to teach them. Ugh. In ... Full Comment>>

Tiger penis soup, crushed Rhino horn, sharks fin soup. Any endangered animal will do. You see so many Chinese men are impotent, they need these things to get it up. Full Comment>>

Articles : 13david commented on news Money and Affection: Understanding the Financial Motives Behind Chinese Relationships

Living in the countryside in Australia is to lose face for my Chinese wife. God I hate that phrase, "losing face". We call it embarrassment. What's so special about "losing face" Maybe "off your face" might throw most Chinese. Surprised no mention of the second most important feature of the Chinese, bloody food. ... Full Comment>>

And it's only going to get worse. Saving or showing face is a pain in the face. China is a full on capitalist nation, except for the peasants in the countryside who are despised by the new middle class. Full Comment>>

Articles : 13david commented on news The One-Child Policy & “Social Maintenance Fees”: Where Does all the Money Go?

May be those women walking around with more than one child are from the rich elite which is a great growth item in China. Plenty of that group pay only "pocket money" as a fine for an extra child. May be there is an upside to this as the "little emperor" symptom is wrecking [?] and changing community in China. The ... Full Comment>>

Replying to my own post from way back, the above fruits are wonderful but not "weird". I grow more than 50% of them in my sub tropical garden, but protect them against frost. The rest [ like mangosteen, Randall you dont eat the rind] are common in the Australian tropics. Lychees are my favourite fruit with Dragon ... Full Comment>>

Articles : 13david commented on news From Nuclear Plants to Land Seizures: When Protests are Successful in China

Makes me wonder how you get away with circulating an article like this. I would think that the communist[?] party, realises that it is read by such a small minority of expats and hardly any chinese that it isn't worth bothering about. Although the article says that Chinese people are becoming more educated and ... Full Comment>>

Shit is this a spoof? From Deng Xiao Ping old people were effectively "legislated" out of the community. He instituted flat out capitalism and the devil take the hind most,including parents. But I guess in a fscist state all sorts of holes will try to be plugged by an out of touch party. Full Comment>>

You mention drugs. I saw a sight which stunned me in Lijiang whilst waiting for a bus. There was a high wall opposite us, about 12 feet high. Towering over it were a number of dope plants[ you'll understand that I recognised them from photos I'd seen]. It was about an acre of waste ground, opposite a tourist ... Full Comment>>

Can't believe that spelling arguments come before discussion of a very important issue in China.
