Chinese Women, Asian Women, Online Dating & Things Chinese and Asian
Barry from Australia is a questioning soul who looks at social issues from an alternative point of view and instead of asking, “Why?”, he asks “Why not?” He’s convinced that many of his previous incarnations were spent in China. He feels drawn to the people there; attracted by their rich culture and way of life. If given one wish from God, he’d reply, “I want everyone on Earth to be the same colour, speak the same language, and treat each other as they themselves would like to be treated.”

I am very happy to report that LadyMonika and I finally have corresponded via email and she has very gracefully and generously offered to take up where she left off translating Barry's blogs, and she has started on this one we are commenting on now. AnnieHow, as planned, is also generously translating Paul's blogs and one of Gareths as well.

The confusion is at an end thanks to these two wonderful ladies. We owe them a round of applause (clap)(clap)(clap) Especially me, since I had a big hand in creating the confusion to begin with. (wasntme)

"We are lucky because we can speak it (English)"

Yes, I agree with you, Paul.

We're very lucky indeed to have been born in an English speaking country.

This is why I have so much respect and stand in awe of people like @ladymonika and @Anniehow, both of whom have mastered two difficult languages.

I actually admire you also for being able to half speak Chinese, which is an admirable achievement indeed. Well done, Paul! (y)

I must say what wonderful examples of excellent quality, intelligent and lovely Chinese ladies you both are.

To volunteer for the hard grind of translating blog articles is wonderful indeed, just as the very kind and good Marissa did previously.

I would like more Chinese ladies to return to the blogs and become actively involved with them, just as so many do on the forums. Having translations here will certainly encourage this to occur.

I know translating can be a thankless job. Let me please say that if either of you become sick and tired of doing it, just let us know straight away. Don't feel compelled that you have to do it or must do it. All of us here would understand, as we know what a tedious task it can be. (clap)

Barry me lad, I am curious as to how you get a certain lighting look on most of Tina's facial pictures, I don't see it in the other photos you have attached in your blog. Is it a software editing program or a option built in to your camera? I am novice when it comes to photo editing and cameras.

It seems most of the men and women farmers you photograph always seem so cheerful and quick to smile. Any thoughts as to why? I want to say to those goats in the back of truck "run Forrest Goat, just run". If only they knew where they were going.....

The food on the table in the one photo looks extremely spicy did you have an opportunity to sample the different foods during your hikes?

"I am curious as to how you get a certain lighting look on most of Tina's facial pictures"

Now that you mention it, I see that the skin on Tina's face looks as smooth and rosy as a baby. Tina took this picture with her own camera, so I guess it just happened to be in an ideal lighting situation when she took it.

I should say also that Tina takes extraordinary pains to stay out of the sun. This helps explain why at age 45, her skin resembles that of a 20 year old.

You also said,

"It seems most of the men and women farmers you photograph always seem so cheerful and quick to smile. Any thoughts as to why?"

This is a very good question. In fact, I specifically address it in a forthcoming blog article (Day 22, part 4). If you can wait till the publication of this article, all will hopefully be revealed.

"The food on the table in the one photo looks extremely spicy"

I must say that on this trip, I was very careful what I ate, after nearly having my mouth burnt out with the spicy food on my last trip. This time, I avoided most foods, except for fish and rice with a few green veges. Once bitten, twice shy!

Having said this though, I recommend that Westerners do in fact sample plenty of the food delights if they travel to China. To me, Chinese cuisine is one of the very best in the world. Certainly far more interesting than the bland Australian food I was brought upon - meat pies, peas and tomato sauce. (y)

"I have been happy here and enjoy your romantic and exotic journey with Tina"

Thank you for your kind words, whyaya. You seem to be a very kind and good person. Most certainly, I wish you well in your life, whatever your aims or goals may be. (y)
