            I began studying Latin in high school.  We used a textbook which employed Latin proverbs to help teach the language.  The author obviously intended to kill two birds with one stone, teaching us about ancient Roman thought as well as their language.  Among these proverbs were ars gratia artis, "art for the sake of art", amor omnia vincit, "love conquers all", and vestis virum reddit, "clothes make the man".  This last one obviously bore the greatest significance to the subject of this blog, my profile pictures.

Visiting China always cracks something open inside me. If I want to describe this thing, I close my eyes, and it will appear as a hotel room that has just been put back into operation after being unused for a long while. Its door and windows are wide open to air the place out. Furniture is dusted off, floors swept. After the final once-over, the room is ready to do the only thing it's supposed to do: accommodate fresh memories. Read more…

I totally defy anyone who has already BEEN to China to deny that it has to be one of the most amazingly diverse countries on the planet. It may not be to everyone’s ‘taste’ but the word ‘diversity’ itself, must have been coined here. 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…

Today is the lunar July 7th, Gregorian calendar on August 2, 2014, is our Chinese traditional Qi Xi Festival(七夕节). This day is now generally called Double Seventh day (also called Seven Skillful Festival, Beg skillful festival, Seven Sisters Born, namely double seventh lunar month) as the Chinese valentine's day. It is said that on this day, the magpies build a rainbow bridge in the sky to let cowherd and the fairy have their annual meeting. Cowherd and the fairy is one of the four greatest Chinese legends in ancient China, so the Double Seventh Day is famous. It seems to be the festival of all lovers but it's actually not. Read more…

A face you should remember but a name you have probably forgotten - Simon Weston (OBE) - A welsh soldier, a hero from the Falklands war back in the 1980's. Simon became a household name because of his bravery when fighting for his country, suffering horrendous injuries in an explosion that resulted in 45% burns and dis-figured him for life. Simon was, and continues to be a huge inspiration to many people who have faced massive hurdles in their lives and shows us that life really does go on, no matter how bad things get. Read more…

If there is one thing that almost every Chinese person loves and that is a banquet! The chance to get their mouth around foods that they might not necessarily eat at home is quite a sweet deal and people will travel hours for the possibility, sometimes not eating anything from the day before, just to get their fill - and, if it comes on the dime of someone else the taste is even sweeter.

A man lay in bed on his wedding night with his new bride. She turned to him and said - "darling, there is something I should tell you about my past". The man smiled at her sweetly and said "Honey, you can tell me anything". "I used to be a hooker" she said.  Read more…

I’d like to thank CLM from the bottom of my heart for being exactly what it’s advertised as, a great place for western men to meet and fall in love with the Chinese women of their dreams. I met Windy on CLM in May of 2010. We hit it off immediately and found we shared a lot in common. It was great to talk to someone who was so honest. I had already decided to move to China to teach English for a year and Windy gave me a lot of encouragement when I hit obstacles along the way in getting my paperwork done in the states. Read more…

Zhuo parted with me after we had been together for nearly three years. Hongwei didn’t know about it until I told him. He advised me to look at the bright side of it and joked with me, trying to make me feel better. I asked him whether he would bury me if I took my own life someday. He said he would do it against his will, yet he hoped I could live happily. Read more…

Cai was a clever and considerate girl who lived with me in the same apartment. We got on well with each other. I realized that she lost her heart to Hongwei when she bought a T-shirt as a present for him on his birthday. Hongwei was attracted by her as well. They seemed like a good match. Would they be together? Read more…

When you read this blog, if you are at all like me, there's a word that will pop into your mind. It's a word that comes to the surface because it seems to define this young woman. The word is "courage". And it comes to mind partly because of the subject matter of her blog, but even more so because with this blog AmyLu is embarking on a journey of self discovery that she'll be taking with all eyes upon her, exposed and unprotected. She intends to describe for us how her life has progressed from the events long ago that she describes here, up to the present day. Read more…

There was a park with an artificial lake named “East Lake Park” by the local people nearby NYF. In the evenings after dinner, some of my colleagues and I often walked along the streets into the park chatting and roaming. Kashgar was shrouded in warmth and quietude when a myriad of twinkling lights were lit in the evening. It often touched me on a string of mawkish sentiment. Read more…

Life in China is not simple, not for expats and not for Chinese either, but it is simpler for those expats who try to learn how to understand the culture of China and how Chinese people think. It also makes Chinese dating considerably easier if you try to understand Chinese women, whether you are an expat in China or a foreigner living at home. This wonderful new blogger will really help you understand the way Chinese people, and especially Chinese women, think if you follow her closely. We give you Helen, our newest blogger, and hope you enjoy her thoughts on life: Read more…
