Articles : louischuahm commented on news Lee Kuan Yew: If China Becomes a Western-style Democracy, It Will Collapse

Wow...and I am a full blown Singaporean. Well, I suppose everyone has their favorite punching bag when it comes to their own head of government, Obama, Cameron or whoever calls the shot at the moment. Frankly, LKY did what he did when he did it, so who am I to say he was wrong? He did bring Singapore to where it is ... Full Comment>>

Well I've managed to survive my first year here in Chongqing. Overall, I wouldn't say that it's good. It could've been better. So here I am, promoted after 6 months on the job. Now I am Head of Department for Educational Administration, whatever that means. Basically, my job is to ensure that teaching quality is up ...

I can't understand how a person's faith is measured by the amount of money he hands over. Whether it's a product or a belief, people all over the world are sold on tne idea that possessing these products or beliefs will make one's life more meaningful. Full Comment>>

Articles : louischuahm commented on news Is China’s Education System Driving Away Top Students? Sharp Increase in Chinese Students Abroad: Part 2

With the current education system I'm not surprised. Those who can afford will go overseas to get a well rounded education. Those who can't will have to make do. At the rate it's going, those who went overseas will eventually become leaders, the rest just followers. Those who compete their overseas education return ... Full Comment>>

It's an addiction that has no cure. I wonder what the withdrawal symptoms will be like.

Looks like they are tightening the noose. On the good side, it's flushes out the fly-by-night "teachers" who are giving the real ones a bad name. On the other hand, it might and probably will kill the supply of foreign teachers. Full Comment>>

Thanks for dropping by. I suppose everyone has their own style of writing. I prefer simple straightforward writing without the use of bombastic language.

Articles : louischuahm commented on news 5 Ways to Combat Homesickness in China

If you can get homesick it simply means you are not ready for China. This country has so much to offer and I don't see how one can get bored or homesick. If things start getting to you, move! Go to another city, get a new experience. Every city is different. That's the beauty of China (and the ugly as well). Full Comment>>

Yes, it's that old city. It's mostly traditional Chinese stuff now, some of them you can get elsewhere but there were some really nice ones. Plus the price is half of what you would pay elsewhere. Still a nice place to visit. Full Comment>>

Thanks Sorrel. Staying positive helps a lot and don't take things thrown at you too hard. It makes work more pleasant and at times quite hilarious when you laugh at yourself for doing some things you would never have done back home. Cheerios! Full Comment>>

So, my 2 week break is almost over. Good thing was that I managed to get all my cooking stuff together and cooked most of the days - pasta, guiness stew, seafood paella, etc, all the food that I can't get here. Yum! When school starts again on 11th, I won't have much time to cook, maybe just weekends, so it's back ...

Thanks Johnny! Actually it's how you look at things. If you are already here, why not make things work for you instead of bitching and ranting about how bad things are, and make yourself miserable? If you take things as it comes then you will last longer. Does that make sense? Cheers mate! Full Comment>>

Diver@ I think that's because we've been hearing about Xinjiang too many times, it no longer adds to the shock that we got initially. Probably most of us will say, "oh, are they at it again?" And we will carry on with whatever we left off at. Full Comment>>

School's out and everyone has gone home. Some of the kids have gone overseas to the US or UK, probably to check out the universities they wil be going to next year. For me, it's been a hectic four months but I must say it was rewarding since I can see kids really putting in effort to understand what they study. Life ...
