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.”

@Barry1

I am accepting the bet. I will pass on to John one of the following pieces of information


'the relationship between Barry and Tina is still on at end of his China trip( now completed)"

or

"the relationship between Barry and Tina is finished at end of his China trip(now completed)"

Barry the only time I have ever played two-up was in Broken Hill in 1977. I won.
This time I feel even luckier.

@melcyan

"I am accepting the bet."

Whoa there, Melcyan. Please hold up a little!

The bet is not so simple as this. You need to tell me what is the conclusion of the relationship at the end of my series of blogs.

You see, I've decided to continue the "My China Trip" series (with John's approval of course), even AFTER I leave China.

So the story will continue for some time yet.

You need to tell me what the result of my relationship will be, when I finally CONCLUDE this series of articles describing Tina and I. This may go for another ten or twenty articles. Or maybe more. It depends how lazy I'm feeling at the time, whether I want to keep writing or not.

The bet also must include not just if Tina and I are still together or not. But if we MARRY or not. And also, which country we're living in, IF we're still together.

Are you still feeling lucky and confident about this challenging wager, my risk-taking but now somewhat crestfallen friend? (rofl)(beer)

I should announce that the following people have now all tied, in the race to win a GOLD MEMBERSHIP UPGRADE.

To remind anyone who still doesn't know, the person who is judged to have made the most challenging and/or interesting comment in any of the Day 22 Part 1 through to Part 8 series of articles will spectacularly win a highly prestigious GOLD MEMBERSHIP UPGRADE to this site.

So far, the front runners are as follows:

@Biancadou who showed she was a discerning person when she made a number of interesting comments, including the following.

"you are yourself, you are using your eyes and heart to watch and to feel, there's nothing bad in doing this. I like those articles, because you write what you have seen and thought, you are yourself."


@anonymous13131 who walloped me with a load of rotten tomatoes:

长相一般。至少我是看不上你这个样子的男人。但是蒂拉这个小女人是真的爱你。你不 断的给她希望。但是却不敢给她一个结果。你在这里炫耀你们的性爱。这已经是不尊重她了。中国女人不是傻,而是因为爱。所以她愿意为你做一切。而你为她做了什么 ,你取笑她的房子又小又旧。你取笑她家附近很脏。

She intimated I was here to "show off your sex. This is lack of respect for her. Chinese women are not stupid" plus a range of other criticisms, most of which were so off beam they gave me a good laugh. So most certainly, this lady has a chance to win the coveted prize!


@johnabott who showed a touch of caring sensitivity when he said amongst many other pearls of wisdom or wit:

"My point is that you have created an emotion in someone with your writing, and one strong enough to get him or her to comment. That's good writing, so no need for regrets of any kind."


@anonymous13167

至少,这个故事很健康,虽然不优美,但是,心平气和,没有歇斯底里,没有背后的刀子和算计,不管往哪个方向流动,都算水到渠成。

"At least, this story is very healthy, though inelegant, but good-natured, no hysterics, no knives behind and calculation, no matter in which direction you look at it, the feelings are okay."

Anonymous13167 made a series of interesting comments, some for me and some against me. Overall though, she showed she was an intelligent lady who could see both sides of an argument.


Please keep the comments coming, folks! (dance)(d)(beer)

所有的中国友人们,欢迎你们光临这里。当然,加上所有的西方朋友们。在这里,你们所有的点评都是受到邀请的,当你仔细阅读后想回复的时候,请自由的发挥你所想写的每一个点评。我不介意你是否不喜欢我,请轻松的告诉我你心里真实的想法。 (y)

#2015-03-27 21:26:17 by anonymous13184 @anonymous13184

看完大家的讨论文章,结合Barry之前早期和现在的文章,现在我是看明白了。西方男人很聪明,他们之所以花大量的时间为爱情的过程,是为了防止被骗,是为了寻找真诚的爱情。记得Barry早期发表过文章,他已经经历过类似事件,他与中国女人结婚一年,孩子与他们不是很和谐,忍耐一段时间后,以离婚结束,这对Barry来说是很大的伤害和损失。确实有个别女人为了孩子出国读书和工作,采取手段。中国有句千古名言:害人之心不可有,防人之心不可无。每一个人站在自己的角度或者一个侧面看问题,难免对问题的认识有误。
我也参与了这次大讨论,我也批评了Barry,在此对Barry道歉!!希望Barry坚持自己的立场,祝愿你找到真爱。

你好,我的朋友。

谢谢你有趣味的点评,在此可以看出你是个体贴且和善的人。我祝贺你同时也希望这里的所有人如你这般的举止得体

Xie xie, my dear friend. :)

有意思。

@Barry1
Challenging another to make a bet is a common feature of Australian male bravado. Don't worry – I haven't spent the $100 in anticipation of the win and I am definitely smiling after reading your response. Your money is safe.

@melcyan

"Your money is safe."

Thank you for this, Melcyan.

To be quite honest, even I am not 100 per cent sure how everything between Tina and I will pan out, even at this late stage. Things are certainly not yet set in cement. Both of us are taking things very slowly and carefully. (y)
