Blogs : flyingheart Posted a new blog Do You Really Love God?

----Some personal thoughts about the self, love, and GodI am not religious. Not yet. I am not a true atheist either, for I have had so many things in my life that fell into place as if arranged by an invisible hand – so many that I can’t hold steadfast to the materialist principles that have clearly gone into the ...

Blogs : flyingheart commented on adb2014 's blog Raising an International Child in China

Can't understand why such a heartwarming and, "balanced" as sorrel put it, blog got three down votes. A child with multi-lingual and multi-cultural backgrounds is harder to raise because he/she can easily get confused and lose a sense of identity and place essential to develop as a "whole person". This requires both ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : flyingheart commented on hadleyj09 's blog China is NOT a bad place to be (RANT)

Guess that's why so many Chinese business tycoons and corrupt officials are rushing out of China. I am a Chinese and I have to shake my head helplessly at some things that happened to me...but it's been almost 30 years, and homeostasis may be the only word I can use to describe what I have to do in and with China...

Blogs : flyingheart commented on juanisaac 's blog Islands on the Land

A well-written essay about one of the few things China finds both pride and trouble in. I am a translator so this topic instantly caught my attention. Some historical facts are interesting, and the story of Miss Wen reminded me of my visits to Guiyang, a southern city that speaks a dialect originating from Xi Nan ... Full Comment>>

Around China : flyingheart commented on news Beijing Couple Divorce, Blame Pollution for Break Up

Right you are, Sjama. I've noticed the pattern too. Chinese women in general are in some ways like their counterparts in the US of the 50s. They need a self-awareness and a self-actualization that help them find a more meaningful role/position with their husbands/boyfriends, a status that in turn will help men ... Full Comment>>

Around China : flyingheart commented on news Beijing Couple Divorce, Blame Pollution for Break Up

Since when "friends" became a material thing? For most people who are not aspired to be hermits friendship is as important as parenthood or marriage. If we look from this perspective, shouldn't her hubby be a little more supportive and understanding and help her adapt to the new environment? Why are women supposed ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : flyingheart commented on juanisaac 's blog Making a More Creative Chinese Student

By "success" I just meant they succeeded in ripping children of their creative thinking so they can keep the throne longer without real much effort as in Tian'anmen Square in 1989. The way I see it, creativity is one key element of rebellion and revolution, and our ruler knows that too. That's what I meant in my ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : flyingheart commented on juanisaac 's blog Making a More Creative Chinese Student

Good points, Coineineagh. But why can't China have "role models to even demonstrate logic, fairness and rationality?" I may be wrong, but I don't think the "Great, Almighty" CPC otherwise could continue to hold the throne. Today's situations are just what the Chinese rulers wanted to see all along. Fundamentally ...

You offered some very good tips here. I want to make one point clearer: Before you make your move, KNOW YOURSELF. Not everyone is tailored for ANY profession they want to do. You have to run a deep analysis of what you have and don't have to dive into a particular line of business. Can you get what you don't have as ... Full Comment>>

I may be one in a million if there is a poll suggesting so, but it seems logical for me to think that "personality and morals" are No. 1 prerequisite for a worthy marriage. Without it apartments or money can hardly come and be kept for the whole length of your marriage. Full Comment>>

I was reminded of a time when my bf thought I looked ill and asked me, ni you bing ma? It was no joke of course but that gives me a smile every time I relish this memory. Chinese is hard, yes, but just because something is hard doesn't mean you can't have fun with it. It really depends on where learners choose to ... Full Comment>>

I am in southeast China now and I haven't been able to take a shower for two weeks. Outside is great, but indoors is cold like hell even in early April! It's not the Chinese government banning though...it's their legacy neglect to raise construction standards up to the northern level. Generally speaking, Chinese ... Full Comment>>

This story reminded me of Chinese street names. In Urmuqi we have Tuan Jie Lu (Unity Street) where no unity could be spoken of on the 5th day of July 2009. Should it be changed according to what happened? Probably not. Walking on that street would give you a feeling similar to that in Kai Yi Tian - something of a ... Full Comment>>

There are large populations of Uighurs and Huis and Kazakhs in where we live. They are considered "minorities" in China but somehow dominate some areas of our Northwestern region.
