Blogs : Moonlake Posted a new blog Shaving Baby’s Hair Off in China: A Baffling Custom

For the past few weeks I’ve been admiring a new member of my housing compound: a cute little baby with the biggest mop of hair! Every day after work, I see a group of mothers huddled together at the entrance admiring each others’ babies. It’s a nice sight to come home to after a long day’s ...

Blogs : Moonlake Posted a new blog When One Partner Wants to Stay in China and the Other Doesn’t

I once knew a cross-cultural couple in China who had it all figured out. He was a successful business man from the US, she was an ambitious and well-educated woman from China. They’d managed to set up a successful trading company and soon began to enjoy a privileged lifestyle, living in a luxury condo, driving ...

Oh and if you're going to insult my wedding, at least have the courage to comment under your real user name. What a low-class coward you are - a rural wedding in the sticks sounds perfect for you. Full Comment>>

Blogs : Moonlake commented on Moonlake 's blog A Few Things I Learned from My Chinese Wedding

That's an incredibly rude thing to say and you are wrong on all accounts. I'm obviously not going to go into details here on this public blog but I can say it was actually more beautiful and upscale (at a 5 star hotel in a major city so screw you!) than I could have hoped for. I presume you haven't got married or ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : Moonlake Posted a new blog A Few Things I Learned from My Chinese Wedding

I got married in China recently and had a typical Chinese wedding banquet. Prior to the wedding I didn’t really know what to expect and I’m ashamed to admit, I was kind of dreading it because big weddings are just not my thing, especially in a country where as a foreigner you get stared at a lot. Not a ...

Blogs : Moonlake commented on Moonlake 's blog Why I’m Staying in China

Hi Sunsetlover, Thanks for your comment. I agree with everything you said. China definitely isn't "paradise on Earth" and I wish I didn't have to worry about pollution or toxic veg when cooking. There are a lot of problems here, enough to write a book about in fact, but I guess my main point was that China also has ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : Moonlake Posted a new blog Why I’m Staying in China

Remember when Mark Kitto posted that article “You’ll never be Chinese” in Prospect Magazine back in August last year and how that led to a wave of similar articles by long-term expats who decided to throw in the towel? Well, having successfully overcome my own personal crisis with China, I thought ...

Blogs : Moonlake Posted a new blog Serious Dating in China: What Foreigners Must Know

This topic has been covered quite extensively on this and many other expat sites, and many of the tips are quite generic and can be applied to cross-cultural couples all over the world. But, every now and again it does strike me that there are major differences in attitudes towards marriage between China and the ...

Blogs : Moonlake commented on Moonlake 's blog Tips for Maintaining Long Distance Relationships in China

The guy doesn't sound worthy! It's clear that he's not committed to your relationship and is messing with your feelings. The fact that he's asking about your father's job shows that he cares about money and status. My advice is to not waste your time on him and find someone who is absolutely besotted by you and ...

My name is Moonlake and I survived a long-distance relationship between China and Europe. In a few months, I intend to walk down the aisle to wed my amazing Chinese fiancé, promising to love, support and cherish him until the end of my days. But this love story wasn’t smooth-sailing all the time. We met ...

Blogs : Moonlake Posted a new blog Tongxinglian in the Big City: A Taste of the LGBT Scene in China

China’s dating scene can be complicated for the best and most enthusiastic of people. Being an LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) individual can make dating seem like even more of an obstacle filled battlefield. While homosexuality is no longer illegal (made legal in 1997) and no longer considered a ...

Had one of my first nights out in Guangzhou at Hooley's recently and it felt like a home away from home. Friendly staff, great food and drinks and the in-band entertainment is great too. Very lively and social atmosphere.

Blogs : Moonlake Posted a new blog Public Displays of Affection: China Vs. The Rest of the World

China is extremely couple-y. I seriously cannot go anywhere without seeing couples. And boy, are they in love. Couples in other countries can get a little creepy in public with overly touchy public displays of affection. PDA is popular in China as well, but in very different forms than in the rest of the world ...
