Blogs : xiaoxiong Posted a new blog My marriage to China

I remember the first time I stepped foot in Japan. I was mesmerized by all the neon lights, the different styles of clothes that people were wearing, and just how different life seemed to be in the world's largest city compared to my countryside villlage that no one had ever heard of. Living in Japan really ...

Blogs : xiaoxiong commented on pepo36 's blog wai guo ren's behavior in China

i really hate how you start with generalizing about laowai. First of all I agree that complaining is sometimes not that kosher. however sometimes as a foreigner in a foreign country we need to vent. I disagree with the view that we as foreigners aren't allowed to say something negative about china. i am sure plenty ... Full Comment>>

Blogs : xiaoxiong Posted a new blog Getting back the wonderment

It has been 4 years since I first stepped foot into Asia, and I can remember after learning that I first got a job in Japan, feeling so excited and filled with wonderment. Here I was a small town West Virginian with no real experience outside of my own country. I had no idea what the differences between Chinese and ...

Blogs : xiaoxiong commented on Samsara 's blog Chinese Self-Perception

I think the greatest frustration is their view of other cultures. Having lived in Japan and studied Japanese myself, they try to convince me that The Japanese language somehow originates fron Chinese and wont't accept anything different. Full Comment>>

Blogs : xiaoxiong commented on HoldenColfield 's blog Press One for English

Actually, it is frigging hard to learn Chinese and the language isnt the most motivating language to learn. I think if you were to look closer you would see a lot of Americans speak a second language, though most white people do not. Full Comment>>

Blogs : xiaoxiong Posted a new blog Misunderstood images about laowai

Since the "Opening of China in 1979", the nation has made great strides in economics, science, and its general relationship with the world community. However, despite these things, I find that sometimes there is a big disconnect between many Chinese people's perception of Westerners and what is based in reality. ...

Articles : xiaoxiong commented on news The “Unfriendly” Expats? Stereotypes of Russians in China

I think its too easy to blame a gory past for a solemn outlook. Look at the Chinese, in the 20th century they went through hell and back, but they are not afraid to smile. However, there is some point to your article that we do seem to generalize Russians in negative ways. Full Comment>>
