Nothing—not sex, not politics, not money issues—is more important to a relationship/marriage than communication. You might read somewhere that money issues are the single biggest reason for divorce, but dig down and you will find that it was not the money that caused the breakup but the inability to communicate about finances—and often anything else for that matter.

Chinese customs seem to be going through a cultural change due to the huge generation gap between people who grew up in rural communities and their children who crave smartphones and other things their parents could never afford. Read more…

China has long been known for its wonderful ability to copy products. In March this year there was a national 'awareness day' during which people were told to consider the implications of buying 'knock-off' products. Copying products is almost part of Chinese culture itself. Read more…

“This would never happen in China,” she said, and I had to admit she was absolutely right. Taking away citizens’ right to own a gun removes the possibility of mass killings in a society the same way that getting a vasectomy eliminates the possibility of becoming a father. Although I recall reading a year or so ago about a killing at a train station in Kunming where a guy with a knife killed 4 or 5 people, that scenario is light years from the killing of 50 and wounding of 53  that had just taken place at a nightclub in Orlando.

Within just twelve hours of waking up from my nightmare, we had arrived at the entrance of the cave in Guilin just as the other visitors lined up and sank into its dark, shadowy mouth. We, too, with the other woman—who brought the tickets for us and whose name I didn't even know—queued in to be swallowed up and then expelled through another opening of the cave less than an hour later.

After four memorable trips and going on a year or so of living in China - ranging from extreme urban areas such as Shanghai, Nanjing and Hangzhou through to the rural regions of Sichuan Province  -  I feel reasonably qualified to present a few random recollections and experiences of China. Those with a low boredom threshold please stop reading now.  Those idiots, fools and persons of low character, please also stop reading now.  This series of articles is intended only for the intelligentsia amongst us.  Read more…

"We've got 5000 years of culture and history" tends to be the stock answer when the question including 'why' is asked in China . 'So what ? Australian aboriginals have 40,000 years of history, does that make them better than anyone else?"... Read more…

The sudden noise that came from the small room was barely audible and didn't raise any alarm. It was only a dull, wood-on-wood thud. Lian only looked up for a moment and continued her work in the kitchen. Only Yan's scream a couple of seconds later made her jump in fear. Read more…

Yan lowered her head and, wearily, looked at her dust-covered shoes as she followed a group of children. She was hungry and wanted to get home as soon as possible after school, but the fear of passing the group and being ridiculed by them settled her small feet into a steady plod. Read more…

~~Moving to any country to live and work can often lead a person into some kind of ‘culture-shock’, and China is no exception. They have some strange and wonderful cultures and traditions, many that always make me smile. One such culture is the lunch at 11.30 (or noon) and dinner at 6pm Read more…

A happy pig, and painful Socrates, what differences are there between them? A pig is happy, in human’s opinion, it only means the happy in the body. Perhaps, the difference between human and animals is the awakening of self-consciousness.  The awakening of self-consciousness is not equal to a blind pursuit of freedom, the light of blind pursuit of freedom is not human glory, where there is no yourself, but your pursuit; without knowing who you are, how could you make sense of self-awareness?

大约6点钟左右,迈克和他的朋友按时到楼下,我带他们到附近的饭店吃晚餐,迈克和他的朋友碰上每一个服务员都点头微笑,我们几个人围坐在一个圆圆的饭桌包餐厅内,在没吃饭前,迈克谦和的问我一件事,他说:“娜姐,按照我们的习俗,我们在吃饭前都要祷告一下,你介意吗?” 我回答说:“是吗?我不介意的,我会尊重你们的文化和你们习俗。”迈克说:“谢谢!“ Read more…

客人就要到了,我应该穿什么样衣服呢?我打开衣柜.各种不同款式的衣服挺多的,但一时想不出到底穿哪件比较合适。我相信多数女人都和我一样爱时髦,喜欢买各种不同款式的衣服,新买来的衣服开始挺喜欢的,但穿了几次后总感觉一般般了,尤其去应酬的时候总感觉没有合适的衣服可穿了。 Read more…
