Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog My Favorite “Cheesified” Chinese Recipes

I may make some enemies here but man do I love cheese on my Chinese food. Barbequed mantou oozing with melted blue cheese; dumplings stuffed with beef, onions and cheddar; Xinjiang naan bread baked with tomato sauce and mozzarella – pizza style; fried egg and tomato noodle with crumbs of feta – ...

Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog Fooling No-One: China's Trying to Shift the Spotlight to Foreign Food Scares

The last couple of weeks have seen a whirlwind of stomach-turning food scandals come to light. I like to compare China's food safety record to watching a very slow train crash. Slowly but surely, its many compartments of various foods are coming undone and spilling out their true content one by one. When the moment ...

Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog Django Unchained No Longer Coming to a Cinema Near You

I’m a big Tarantino fan which is why I was so positively surprised by the news that his latest film “Django Unchained” had passed the Chinese censors and was to be screened in cinemas from today onwards. I was a bit surprised that it got approved however, given Tarantino’s ahem, fondness of ...

Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog How to be a Healthy Vegetarian in China

I’ve noticed a remarkable increase in people, mainly foreigners, deciding to become vegetarian in China of late. The number one reason is the fact that they simply don’t trust the meat here. I can totally relate to these vege-converts and have myself drastically reduced my meat intake. I shudder to think ...

Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog Is Beijing doing enough to end air pollution?

Beijing's hazardous air has been making international headlines. 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. Public dialogue and reports regarding the potentially lethal air has also ...

Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog Why Chinese banks absolutely suck!

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 ...

Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog Is China becoming Hollywood’s big sugar-daddy?

The recent cutting of Skyfall in Mainland China is just one of many Hollywood films to fall prey to Chinese censors in recent years. In fact, such censorship is nothing new or surprising. What’s more worrying however, is the increased power China seems to yield over the American film industry and how it’s using ...

Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog MSG, Not Good For Me: Why MSG in Chinese Food is So Bad for You

Good health is the most precious thing we possess: it’s more valuable than all the gold and diamonds in the world. Many expats who move to China tend to lose sight of this, instead opting for indulgent lifestyles that includes eating out at restaurants on a daily basis, cycling around smoggy cities without wearing ...

Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog Is the Curse of Crowd Mentality to Blame for China's Subway Chaos?

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 ...

Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog The Rebel Lovers of Modern China – Part 1

Zhang Han considers himself an artist. Most others in China would consider him a bum living off his parents’ life savings. It took a while (years, to be more specific) for Zhang’s parents to accept that their son will never work in an office, will most likely never have a steady, monthly income and will almost ...

Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog Buying a Knife in Beijing is Not as Straightforward as One May Think

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 ...

I love the snow. There’s something so peaceful and tranquil about a snow-covered city. A sense of quietness and calm seems to accompany the blanket of snow. On days like this I tend to feel upbeat and positive about the world and mankind.Well, that all changed this morning when I encountered an [insert swear word ...

Blogs : Bumblebee Posted a new blog Things Used to Be so Much Cheaper Back in the Day

Lately, I’ve caught myself sounding like an elder from my hometown: “Back in my day a loaf of bread only cost 10 pence.” All of us who’ve lived in China for a couple of years are acutely aware of the inflation and ensuing price hikes that have been reaping havoc with the price tags of nearly everything (15 kuai f......
