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

This early morning, when I stepped down the steps to get the water pipe and wash my car, I twisted my left foot, hurt my left arm and I was crying a few seconds for releasing the severe pain, no family saw me though, I still could finish washing my car and driving my son to school.

This afternoon, I went on working in the yard, mowed second times in the last two weeks, I hope it will still look good when we come back from China trip this month. Then I cooked dinner.

Tonight, I am tired. But I am still sitting here reading your article. The world is so vivid and real in your words. Though I am not belong to the smart women.

Thank you for your excellent writing.

This early morning, when I stepped down the steps to get the water pipe and wash my car, I twisted my left foot, hurt my left arm and I was crying a few seconds for releasing the severe pain, no family saw me though, I still could finish washing my car and driving my son to school.

TERRIBLE NEWS, MEG! :(

This afternoon, I went on working in the yard, mowed second times in the last two weeks,


YOU'RE A REAL TROOPER, MEG. SOMEONE WHO BATTLES ON REGARDLESS OF THE DIFFICULTIES AROUND HIM OR HER SELF. SOMEONE WHO GETS THE JOB DONE!


I hope it will still look good when we come back from China trip this month. Then I cooked dinner.

YOU'RE RETURNING TO CHINA FOR THE SPRING FESTIVAL?

GREAT TO HEAR, ALTHOUGH I CAN CONFIRM THE WEATHER HERE IS VERY COLD UNFORTUNATELY, AROUND FOUR DEGREES MOST DAYS HERE IN SICHUAN. SO MUCH DIFFERENT FROM SUNNY AUSTRALIA RIGHT NOW.

I WISH I WAS WHERE YOU ARE NOW, A LAND OF UNLIMITED CLEAN AIR AND BLUE SKIES!


Tonight, I am tired.

I CAN SEE WHY, AFTER YOU DID SO MUCH WORK TODAY.

But I am still sitting here reading your article. The world is so vivid and real in your words.

THANKS MEG. SOME PEOPLE DON'T LIKE MY WRITING SO IT'S A PLEASURE TO SEE SOMEONE WHO DOES.


Though I am not belong to the smart women.

I DISAGREE. YOU KNOW TWO LANGUAGES FOR STARTERS. YOU'VE MADE A WONDERFUL NEW LIFE FOR YOURSELF IN A NEW COUNTRY. I THINK YOU'RE A VERY SMART, RESOURCEFUL AND DETERMINED PERSON INDEED.

Thank you for your excellent writing.

THANKS MEG. YOU'RE A VERY KIND-HEARTED PERSON. (f)(sun)(f)(sun)

@Barry1

Thank you for your comment, Barry. You are a very good teacher :)

Every day, we will have different feelings, it's life. I am happy I have quite clear targets in life, sometimes I will feel frustrated, even feel standing at the crossing, but I won't lose my way.

Yes, we will go back China for Spring Festival , my hometown Nanning won't be so cold as the weather in Sichuan, it's about 10 degrees these days.

Now we are in Sydney, IT'S CHOCOLATE WEATHER HERE, it's rainy and cool, my chocolates won't get melt :)

Do hope everything goes well with you and Tina (f)(f)(f) (d)(d)

@meg

Thanks for your kind comments, Meg.

You remind me in many ways of Tina.

Both of you are very sweet, smart, good-looking and determined ladies, who know what they want in life and who are prepared to battle all obstacles in many brave attemptd to pursue their dreams.

Well done, Meg. Your Australian husband is a very lucky guy! (y)(y)(y)

I can't help but feel somewhat offended by this. I am not ugly or stupid. Nor am I gay. It's not exactly like deciding what I want for lunch. It takes more than two minutes to find a wife.

@billyshears

"I am not ugly or stupid."

Thanks for your comments, Billy.

My favorite form of writing is satire. Since I've been publishing articles on this website for quite a while now, my satirical bent has intermittently caused me a lot of grief, with people writing in and voicing criticism - sometimes quite offensive criticism, way stronger than the tone of my original words - at what I've written.

Being somewhat of a masochist however, I continue with my irreverent spoofery. John Abbot, the editor of these blogs, has just about given up on ever changing me for "the better". Poor guy.

Oh, I'm sure that you know, but for all the other lame-brained, ignorant male knuckleheads out there, here's the Wikipedia definition of satire.


"Satire is a genre of literature, and sometimes graphic and performing arts, in which vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, corporations, government or society itself, into improvement. Although satire is usually meant to be humorous, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit to draw attention to both particular and wider issues in society.

"A feature of satire is strong irony or sarcasm — "in satire, irony is militant" — but parody, burlesque, exaggeration, juxtaposition, comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing. This "militant" irony or sarcasm often professes to approve of (or at least accept as natural) the very things the satirist wishes to attack.

"Satire is nowadays found in many artistic forms of expression, including literature, plays, commentary, television shows, and media such as lyrics."

Hhmmm..............interesting......You may not be ugly and we can take your word for it that you are not gay, but if you are offended by this article then I am afraid I cannot agree with you that you are not stupid
Obviously your sense of humour differs from the rest of us knuckle-draggers

Billy, first, welcome to CLM and ALM and to the Blogs. Please let me introduce you to Barry and Paul, two guys who hang out here a lot, blog for us a lot, and who are highly entertaining in a frequently offensive and almost always mildly annoying sort of way.

It's important to understand that they mean no harm and that they take great joy in offending their unsuspecting victims, especially me and anyone else who gets in their way. I am not sure how familiar you are with Australians, but I have to advise you they are both Australians, and what I just wrote about them seems to fairly describe about 90% of Australians, including my Chinese wife who has been an Australian citizen for well over 20 years now.

By way of example, all three of them (Barry, Paul and my wife), think it is not impolite at all to tell people they are stupid. See Paul's comment to you above. I have to constantly remind myself not to take offence and to remember that basically they evolved on a giant bar of sand out there in the middle of nowhere, severely isolated from the normal progress of society. They are roughly a century behind the rest of us culturally

If you are familiar with Australians then no doubt the second you read that Barry and Paul are Australian the thought that popped into your head was "Ahhh. That explains a lot."

So my advice to you is that when you read anything written by these two guys you should kick back, relax, enjoy the read and take it all in with a grain of salt about the size of a basketball.

Barry, that was all satire, right? (wasntme)

Anyway, welcome billyshears, and believe it or not from your first experience on the blogs, you are on the right site to find a great Chinese wife, and you are absolutely right that finding a great Chinese or Asian wife is not something to rush into. Take your time, and enjoy meeting lots of great people here on CLM.

Cheers, John
Managing Director

@JohnAbbot

Thanks for your comments, John.

Speaking on behalf of both Paul and I - as I'm sure he'd agree with my thoughts here - perhaps I can clarify a couple of things that you said?

1. "Barry and Paul, two guys who hang out here a lot, blog for us a lot, and who are highly entertaining in a frequently offensive and almost always mildly annoying sort of way."

I've long agree with the old adage:

"Say nothing.
Do nothing
Be nothing"

So even though Paul and I can be rather annoying - like a buzzing blowfly that keeps wanting to fly up your nose despite your repeated gesticulations to be rid of it - at least people know they're alive if ever they read things here and feel a little needled or miffed by what they read.

And it's better to feel alive, rather than dead - right?

2. "they take great joy in offending their unsuspecting victims"

Yes, as a general rule, we love it when people react to our words. Although note I said "react" and not "overreact"!

I could say more here but my lips are sealed.

3. "all three of them (Barry, Paul and my wife), think it is not impolite at all to tell people they are stupid."

Your smart wife is certainly correct here, John.

I mean, if someone IS stupid, why bother to disguise this fact? Why not simply blurt it out to their face? Makes sense not to lie or beat around the bush, right?

Aussies are renowned for their lack of airs and graces, their earthy directness and good sense of humour. Maybe this is why most Australians have never worn a suit or tie in their life, preferring instead to throw on some shorts, T-shirt (preferably with a provocative picture or words on it) with thongs/scuffs on their feet.

I will concede however, that as far as males go, Aussie males are probably the most lame-brained nitwits of them all, most likely caused by two centuries of genetic inbreeding on their far away, isolated continent.

God bless Australia! (beer)(beer)(beer)
