Articles : DrMonkey commented on news China's Bad Air Scaring Away Foreign Tourists

Even if action is taken seriously right now, it will need years before the effect are seen. 70% of electricity is made with coal : you don't replace 70% of your electric production in one year. Most buildings are not insulated, pushing electric usage high (for air-con) : you won't insulate all the buildings of China ... Full Comment>>

Around China : DrMonkey commented on news Wuhan Mother has Abortion Due to Daughter’s Suicide Threats

Of course everyone have pressure, it's not special to China. Having pressure does not mean you have to yield every time you feel under pressure. If you saying "no" to a kid is too much pressure, you are going to be a push-over your whole life. A thing called "courage", that makes life so much worth it. Full Comment>>

Articles : DrMonkey commented on news No Car, No House, No Problem? The Ups and Downs of Transnational Marriages in China

I can point you a good dozen blogs of Western women happily married to a Chinese man, living in China. None of them are "losers back home", by a long shot. Just a subset: http://chinaelevatorstories.com http://sarajaaksola.com http://www.speakingofchina.com http://martalivesinchina.wordpress.com Full Comment>>

Articles : DrMonkey commented on news Educated but Broke: 80 Percent of Returned Students from Overseas Make Less than 10,000 Yuan

Those students usually fail hard, I've seen when I was studying myself : they are terribly unprepared for a typical public Western university. At least in science, you can't pass the semester exams with just rote learning and cheating. You can bring books at the exam : you are asked to remember formulas, but to ... Full Comment>>

If you work as a lecturer in a public Chinese university (which is a typical starting position for a PhD), you get 5000 RMB. You get perks like free accommodation, better than average schooling for the kids, welfare scheme, etc. So a common arrangement for married couples is : one works in a public university to get ...

That would be interesting to see the income progression over 5 years for returnee vs. local students. At first, they got about the same income, because the company just want to see what their new recruits are able to do. The locals, with largely inflated grades and zero skills, are likely to stagnate (something I've ... Full Comment>>

Some accurate points, and some less accurate ones. Married with a Chinese woman for a few years... About sex, Chinese are enjoying it as much as anybody else, and will miss it. The Victorian era prudishness makes them less direct about it, but they are human beings with the same needs, which include enjoyable sex ... Full Comment>>

Living in China is easy ... as long as you are single, in good health and without kids. If you need to go to an hospital, find a school for the kids, caring for the parents (old people with failing health, 2000RMB/months as pension...), and all those "boring adult's responsibilities" bits, things get seriously ...

Errr, way to ruin your daughter's biggest day and her princess dream. The Chinese parents are doing zero efforts. They are invited in Australia, that's I think already a nice gesture that shows plenty of respect.

Apart from pure scamming (like it seems to be in that story), I can imagine what a young Vietnamese countryside girl would feel. The life condition in Chinese countryside are very close to the life condition in countryside (ie. poor access to many things they wish to have). But on top of that, those women have to ...
