Around China : adb2014 commented on news Sex Tape Shot in Shanghai Lujiazui Four Seasons Goes Viral and is Subsequently Blocked

It's funny that in incidents involving sex, the police treat it almost as seriously as a murder investigation. I can bet though, that if the woman was assaulted instead, the police wouldn't even have bothered investigating. Am I the only one who thinks this? Full Comment>>

A company in China scamming people? But...but...that's impossible! Chinese are always so honest and trustworthy and would never dream of deceiving people. Their word is their bond, a handshake is as good as a contract... That's what this woman must have thought when she sent a huge chunk of money without doing any ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : adb2014 Posted a new blog Getting Shirty - Funny English T-shirts in China

While you're out and about today, have a look at how many people are wearing English-language t-shirts. Lots, right? The funny lines and squiggles on these shirts will probably have generic or boring slogans (Broadcast News, the Supreme Court of Justice) or sometimes nonsense (Power Girl Pie) but probably nothing ...

So if I understand it correctly, the job pays 300,000 a year and 50% of that goes towards tuition? That leaves roughly 16,000 a month and I know from raising two kids myself, that can disappear pretty quickly. I do have a friend who works for a British Internaitonal School and because he's a teacher there, both his ... Full Comment>>

Team, group, mob...we don't give much thought to which word is more common in Australia or the US, as long as people know what it refers to.

I was just thinking the exact same thing. The school should have been closed immediately and students relocated to other schools in the area. At least with this report, parents now know not to send their kids there and parents of exising students can take them out. Full Comment>>

Unifortunately, I've seen this many times before - single princesses who are spoilt by mummy and daddy.
