Recently, I noticed a new member into a Wechat group asking for help ...  She complained about Chinese doctors (actually most likely complained about one Chinese doctor).  This situation has polarized both Chinese and foreigners.  Both sides screaming at each other more or less about the "dirty" things they experience from each other. In my thinking it is very easy to "dig up" enough "dirt" on either side .  Instead, I usually ignore such incidents.   Read more…

This blog post I wrote ... before John accepted me to write a blog.  Actually after reading more blogs and comments I wish to revise and edit this lengthy rambling blog post.  I am worried and concerned that many Chinese members can not easily understand it .  However, I feel frustrated with how some foreigners seem to have a habit of complaining about living in China.  So I will share this ... hopefully those who view and read this blog post will understand -- this was my way to deal with my frustration with those who have complain about living in China.  Thank you for your patience and consideration.   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…

我们一路上谈笑风声,转眼就到了我们要去的的学校了,我们到学校时正好是下课时间,小孩子们见我们走进校圆,个个都飞奔向我们跑过来,围着我们看着我的客人,我开玩笑的对迈克说:“迈克,你看,小孩子们把你当外星人来看了,要不他们怎么那么好奇的围着你们转呢。"  迈克听我这么说后哈哈大笑,我开玩笑的对小孩子们说:“小朋友,你们觉得他们帅吗?”小孩子们都异口同声的说:“好帅哦。” 我又说:”那你们喜欢他们吗?" 小孩子们又异口同声而且更大声的说:”喜欢。" 我说 : "那你们拍拍手欢迊他们好吗?" 这时小孩们更开心了,不停的拍手叫好,他们个个挤上来争着和客人照相,最好玩的是小孩子们都围着客人让客人给他们签名,我又开玩笑的对迈克说: " 天啊! 迈克!你看.他们把你们当成名星或名人来来看了." 迈克听我这么说更哈哈大笑了.

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…

It seems so tragic to be announcing this funeral so early in a good man's life. There are men one might say of, "Died at 46 years you say? Oh, well, no great loss to the world." But Gareth was not such a man, he was not among that number! Gareth has given us much of himself, and yet he had so much more to give. Read more…

This is, without any doubt, the most difficult thing I have had to do since we started ChinaLoveMatch.net.  I am so sorry to have to report to everyone, especially those of you have been with us for a long time, that our close compatriot and much read and admired blogger, Gareth Humphris, has passed away.  This sad news was reported to me this evening by Paul Fox, who had tried to contact Gareth by phone, only to have Gareth’s sister answer the call. She advised him of Gareth’s passing. Read more…

Ok, so most of you have heard about the pollution in China! You haven't, well, I'll just let you in on a little secret! That TV you watch, the computer you use every day, your shoes, probably your clothes down to your underclothes and probably about 90 percent of everything else you will look at in the next 10 years was manufactured in China!

Teaching in China has been the single most rewarding thing I’ve ever done with my life, and even though there are more than a few headaches that come with this job. I wouldn’t trade it for anything. The job gives me more freedom than I’ve ever had with any other job and the ability to be such a positive influence in my kid’s lives is just the icing on the cake. I only wish there were more teachers who took the job more seriously, but as I’ve said before this job isn’t for everyone. Read more…

I’ve been thinking about my last article, and about how I berated the guys who came here for fun and games. Perhaps I was a little hard on them. We all have our own reasons for coming to China, and leaving behind what we had back home. From economic reasons to personal or even a combination of the two, sometimes we come because we are searching for that beautiful Chinese woman that will complete us. I know my experience with Western women that definitely played a big role for me leaving my world behind. Read more…

I’ve been bombarded for the past few months at work with one of my pet peeves here in China, and it’s not the Chinese that seem to drive me to insanity these days. Its disrespectful foreigners, who complain about China being terrible. I’m pretty content with knowing I’m in another country and that culture differences will come up from time to time. I accept that because before I even came to China I looked at the culture and studied as much as I could before I stepped foot in this country. I didn’t want to come off as another one of the jerks from America that the rest of the world hates. Read more…

I don’t want to engage in piling on here. Achelle has written a provocative article about Chinese food preparation methods, and I will let that stand and fall on its own merit. I am merely here to provide some perspective. And the perspective is this: Writing a column about the danger that food preparation in China poses to health is a bit like writing a column about the danger that lawnmowers pose for global warming. True, lawnmowers do emit carbon dioxide and so do contribute in fact to global warming, and the way food is prepared in China (especially here in Sichuan) does pose a threat to health (I guess I did wade into things). But in both cases there is a much bigger danger that is being overlooked. Lawnmowers are not the real problem and neither is food preparation. When it comes to life in China, the problem, unfortunately, is the food itself. If you don’t believe me, Google “Chinese food scandals” and see what comes up. It is literally something new every week. This week the news is all about rat meat being passed off as lamb. According to the Wall Street Journal, more than 900 people were arrested in the crackdown and 20,000 tons of product was seized. Read more…

Recently a good member (I consider all Canadians to be good members) posted a forum thread entitled "Travel for a Canadian to China". I wrote everything below as a comment, then thought "What the hey, I don't have much time to write my blogs anymore, so why not post this as a blog instead". I suggest you visit the thread and then come back for my response on China travel. I'm sure there'll also be a number of other comments of equal or greater value than mine from some of the other Expats in China who hang out on CLM, so you should check back on the thread and the comments here occasionally if you too intend to travel to China..
