"I would describe my method but,...this is Barry's blog and must respect his topic!!"

I think all of us here would love to hear more of your thoughts, Gongji.

My articles are but a catalyst for hopefully more expansive conversations. I enjoy chewing the cud over a range of subjects, dog gonnit!

Thanks muchly for everything else that you said. It just makes such utter good sense to me, your overall attitudes, thoughts and values. You're indeed a person who I admire, as I'm sure Lily does also. (y)

@Barry1 - I am a little shocked at seeing 4 haters on this article, but as far as I know a person can only achieve 1 "vote" per article. However, I wasn't able to test it because, for some reason beyond me, I cannot even record 1 vote myself.

The software is attached to Facebook and Twitter, of course, and when I click on one of the little green buttons there is nothing recorded in the little box I clicked on, but instead the share sidebar to the left records a Facebook like instead. That 1 like you are seeing was me, but I didn't click the "hate" button I assure you.

Perhaps you might test the software yourself and see if you're able to vote more than once, and if you are, we maybe can conclude that you have only one hater, that being George.

BTW, is anyone looking as forward as I am to reading George's upcoming blog series? I think that's going to offer plenty of opportunities for some devilish fun. (rofl)

Thanks for this, John. I tested the system myself and found I could only record one vote as you suggested.

I can only assume some Chinese men (or their loyal wives) hated my assertion that "Western men have bigger penises than Chinese men”. (giggle)

Or perhaps some people hated my laughter as described in the article when I covered the face of the chattering Chinese lady sitting next to me in a puddle of exploding yoghurt! :D

Or maybe some conservative people hated my low brow toilet humour when I described my series of loud, rumbling "gas attacks" in the public toilet! (rofl)

Come to think of it, my article did contain some fairly cheeky material, no doubt a little off putting to those poor souls amongst us with a diminished (or non-existent) sense of humour! (wasntme)

"comparison in penis size between Western and Chinese"

Thank you for your comment, Anon1116.

Due to the translation problems, I'm not quite sure of exactly what you said. However, as best that I can understand, you suggested that you read my article hoping to read a LOVE story, rather than a discussion about PENIS SIZE.

Is this correct? If so, please accept my apologies. I shall have a talk to Tina about this, requesting that she please stop talking about penis', as it gets me into too much trouble on CLM. (giggle)

Best wishes to you. (sun)

Barry, I think anonymous11116 is more entertained than miffed at the talk about western men having much bigger penises than Chinese men. I am quite sure that most Chinese women already have heard this and are curious about it as well. Like we say in the West...." the proof is in the pudding" :D

I would like to ask you a question in regards to your pictures and reception to Tina being seen by Chinese locals: Have you found most of the locals receptive to having their photos taken by a western man and who has shown the most angst towards you for being with a Chinese woman...the local women or the men?

Keep 'em coming mate!

"I shall have a talk to Tina about this, requesting that she please stop talking about penis'"

In case anyone's interested, I had a talk to Tina about this. She then said to me

"Barry, if a man and a woman can't talk about such a thing, what else is there to talk about?"

I then replied, "Oh, maybe we can chat about the weather?"

She then threw her hands into the air and walked out of the room.

Was it something I had said? Did I say something wrong? Or do I still know nothing about women, Chinese in particular?

Henceforth I'll be including a brief comment about the photos in my blog articles. If anyone would like to know more about any particular one, simply ask.

In this particular article, the top photo show's Tina and I having dinner in the restaurant below our hotel at Jiuzhaigou. A fish and tomato dish.

The second from top photo show's a lady walking her small pack of goats that I came across, whilst hiking in the hills around Tina's home town of Shawan. A nice, rustic scene.

The third photo from the top shows Tina and I playing a game with our hands, as shown to us by Wendy, Tina's daughter. It was Wendy who took the photo. We all had a bit of fun together, playing this game.

The fourth photo from the top shows a vegetable patch I came across whilst hiking around Shawan, a town you can see in the distance, complete with factory chimneys spewing out rubbish. Such a shame, seeing polluting factories so close to an otherwise quiet country town.

The fifth photo from the top shows Tina and I in front of one of the many wonderful lakes at Jiuzhaigou.

The sixth photo from the top was taken in the lower area of Mt Emei at an eating area where we'd stopped and had a meal at. I was amused by the full bellies of the shirtless men, in the summer heat.

The seventh photo from the top shows a night scene near Tina's home in Shawan. We were walking back to her place when I saw the lady selling watermelons by the side of the road. I thought it looked like an interesting little scene,, so I snapped a quick picture and kept walking. The startled look on the child's face says it all!

The bottom picture was taken on Mt Emei. A group of porters there earn their living through carrying people on stretchers both up and down certain parts of the trail. A hard way to earn a living, especially in the heat of summer.

"western men having much bigger penises than Chinese men"

Thanks for your observations and comments, Anon11146. You sound like quite a smart and knowledgeable person.

You asked,

"Have you found most of the locals receptive to having their photos taken by a western man"

The answer to this is both yes and no. SOME Chinese are smiling and happy when I take their picture. Others are quite unhappy. One time a man said to me,

"You take my picture and I kill you".

I've had other people shouting and waving me away, when I try to take their photo.

So the overall best procedure is to assume that everyone will be a little annoyed. If they're not, then this is a bonus. There's no simple way to tell as to who will be friendly and obliging - and who won't be. As a GENERAL rule, ladies are not as rude as men. There's less chance of being shouted at by a female, although this does still occur from time to time.

You also asked,

"who has shown the most angst towards you for being with a Chinese woman...the local women or the men?"

I've had no angst at all in this area. But I'm stared at by everyone, I presume my 188cm height makes me stand out. The only obvious rudeness I've been shown is by some folks who do NOT (for whatever reason) want their photo taken.

So these days, when I take a photo, I do it as quick as I can. I just snap it and often keep walking, before the person has time to think. After a while, you tend to develop a sixth sense though as to who will become annoyed - and who won't be.

Cheers mate. (y)

interesting he said "take my picture and I will kill you" first off that is a crime in any country to say those words to another person, secondly at your height he will need a ladder to get up high enough to get at you lolololol(rofl)

When I was in San Diego many years ago I dated a very beautiful black woman( I am white), everything was fine, never heard anything negative from other black women or her friends whom were all black, very supportive and they were very curious...having said that the black men including her male family members were nasty to her calling her a racist, slut and many other derogatory words and names, the filth that was spewed at me was absolutely mind blowing. every bad name you can think of was said to me, threats of violence to me, more than once had to duck punches or run....sad situation finally broke us up ,she was worried about me getting killed by her male family members..i.e. father, brothers uncles....and yes we thought about getting married and moving back to my homeland of Canada but the damage and threats was too much...

I truly hope you do not run into this while you are with Tina.....
