Blogs : sunsetlover commented on adb2014 's blog The Reality of Raising Kids in China.

Good article. I always wondered what it'd be like to raise kids here as a foreigner. I wondered, but I wouldn't do it. With due respect, the food pollution, the water pollution and, of course, the much publicized air pollution are just too much of a risk to take, in my opinion. And that's not to mention the other ...

Articles : sunsetlover commented on news Which International Destinations Are Most Popular with Chinese Tourists?

What you said is true. Also, a big part of that spending is for gifts and friends, who as soon as they know they are traveling overseas, they bombard them with shopping requests for cosmetics etc. The thing is, it's not that just "Made in China" is considered crap, it's also that "made in S Korea", but bought in ...

It's more like a "curse", than an "achievement". In fact, the Chinese themselves would brand a foreigner (Westerner) who tries this, as the "ultimate loser". Full Comment>>

Around China : sunsetlover commented on news Beijing Man Awarded 3,000 Yuan for Falsely Accusing Foreigner of Terrorist Activity

There is no "tit for tat", at least with the US and EU, both on a individual visa and on a business/commerce level. For the US in particular, it's been an "open border" policy (surprise) for the last 4-5 years. As far as the incident you mentioned, no one who's been in China over a year would be surprised.

(Suzhou) Features : sunsetlover commented on news Concerned About Food Safety? You Should Be.

Not meant as a critique on Fields (which I have no knowledge on), but this article is overly optimistic. For one, "the future is bright"? When it comes to food safety in China, I don't think so. We can ask any Chinese we trust, who secretly dreams of moving to a Western country (there are tens of millions of them). ... Full Comment>>

Articles : sunsetlover commented on news Chinese Men, Western Women: Differences in the Dating Game

Frankly, even though I agree in principle, in practice Chinese men don't approach Western girls. They are way too shy for that. Heck, notice how many Chinese men approach Chinese girls. 99% of the time they are introduced by friends and family. The only "pick-ups" in China are by foreigners. Full Comment>>

Articles : sunsetlover commented on news 5 Beautiful Places in China Ruined by Tourism

No, I have to disagree about Guilin. If you go during a regular week, the place is great and the sights are breath-taking. The key to any China travel is to search beforehand for the dates of Chinese holidays...and then search again, to make sure your travel will not coincide with those. Full Comment>>

Articles : sunsetlover commented on news Chinese Men, Western Women: Differences in the Dating Game

I have one piece of advice for Western girls thinking about dating Mainland Chinese men: make friends with Mainland Chinese girls and ask THEM. After all, who knows them better? Having said that, in my 4 years in Shanghai I saw maybe 3 "Western girl-Chinese man" couples. In a smaller city, you might be the "talk of ... Full Comment>>

In reality, they will do anything for money and material things. Gold medal in hypocrisy rightfully earned! (since the ... Full Comment>>
