Around China : instantkarma commented on news A Chinese Tourist's Road Trip in the US Ended up with Being Surrounded by Gun-Wielding Cops

Sadly some Chinese are clueless drivers. In Australia we drive on the left side of the road and this is the result, a man in a wheelchair and the Chinese wife injured http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-08-02/tourist-escapes-immediate-jail-term-over-crash/7683916 The lawyer said: "He is a visitor to this country, he ...

Around China : instantkarma commented on news Sexology Professor Assaulted with Bucket of Faeces

I don't know what all the fuss is about with sex. I tried it once and it wasn't that good. Seriously though, this story is not much different to Xtian fundies attacking sex education in US or Australian schools. It's always the progressives vs the conservatives. Full Comment>>

Articles : instantkarma commented on news 5 Beautiful Places in China Not to Go For National Week

There are beautiful places in China and some are off the beaten to a pulp track. I went rafting in the mountains of Guanxi thru caves, past waterfalls and hardly a person in sight. Huangshan is spectacular but to wait for 2-3 to go up or down the chairlift even at 5 in the morning is crazy. Rule 1: Don't travel in ... Full Comment>>

Articles : instantkarma commented on news Will the Dalai Lama Return Home? Increased Communication between the Spiritual Leader and CCP Signals Possible Change

They would only let him back if he prostrated himself to the CCP and signed a document that everything that the CCP did since they invaded Tibet was for the good of the Tibetan people. Incidentally I recently heard that Mao wanted the Potsala Palace blown up and only subtle intervention by Chou En Lai saved it. Mao ... Full Comment>>

Around China : instantkarma commented on news Nanning Restaurant Derided in Chinese Media for Chinglish

My all-time favourite was for a confectionery shop. Obviously they lost their internet connection but they pressed on in naive, energetic Chinese fashion and put up a sign that said Translate Server Error. There's a massage shop that has a sign "Free yourself from the misery of existence". Full Comment>>

I've noticed that China is full of rules but not many are obeyed. But they can use the extra rules to punish whoever they like (read no guanxi, no money). In the immortal words of the Bay City Rollers "some girls do, some girls don't, some girls need a lot of lovin' and some girls don't". Such genius in those ... Full Comment>>

There are many similar stories in China. Read Mark Kitto's famous why I'm leaving China. If you get too successful they figure they can muscle in and take over and reap the profits but they always kill the goose. Have you ever know a country with so many laws that they arbitrarily enforce when the occasion suits? It ... Full Comment>>
