There are many things that we westerners complain about in China, the 'Bean-Can-Man'; those that pay homage to the 'Flob God'; people walking on roads and driving on the pavement; the apparent lack of common sense; even the education system that is often more akin to palliative care than it is to teaching.

I was already thinking of throwing a "doing business in China" oriented blog in here, and then a friend sent me this and I decided that this was more to the point than what I had planned on writing. You need to pay very careful attention to this because there is an important point here that everyone planning to start doing business in China or with Chinese businessmen must understand. It is also relevant often enough in negotiating your future with the Chinese woman you are dating and considering as your life partner. 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…

Three months had now passed since arriving in China in early September 2015.  The first month had been a period of settling in. The second month had been a period of gradual familiarisation with day to day activity.  The third month had given me time to pause and reflect more fully on my situation.  What were my honest feelings about China, whether teaching or otherwise?

~~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…

I blinked but I couldn’t believe it.  But Ted (a foreign teacher like me) was correct.  Close to our university, attached to the side of the house just outside of a window was a dirty bird cage.  Inside the bird cage was a dog. Read more…

I never met Gareth. In person, that is. I knew him, as most of you reading this will, through his writings. But that is not an inconsequential way to get to know someone. Indeed, most writers will tell you that this is their preferred way of interacting with the world. 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…

Day 22 dawned.  I couldn’t believe how quickly time was passing.  It seemed like I’d arrived in China just a few days or so previously, but the facts were the facts.  I was entering my fourth week here, like it or not.  I felt a vague yet quite genuine sense of sadness that I'd have to be leaving China soon.  I’d felt immensely happy here and inwardly vowed that I would return, though I knew that due to work and other pressures back in Australia, this probably wouldn’t be as soon as I’d like.

In October 2012 after my visit of H in Germany, he cut the connection clearly, I didn’t hear one word from him afterword. The following winter of that year was long and cold, and I was lonely and desperate. The phone call from my parents every week turned into sighs and suffocative silence from urging and questions because I was still not married, the looks from the eyes of my friends and colleagues in the weddings of any other who were younger than me turned into pity and sorry instead of direct joking of before, Zoe, when will be yours?

Following on from my last article, I'm going to provide a few more tips for travellers undertaking a long bus journey in China.  Forewarned is forearmed. Because let's face it, unless you're cruising four and five star everywhere, travelling in a strange place is never as comfortable as sitting in the lounge chair back home. Read more…

The alarm woke us at 7.20am.  We had to be sure not to sleep in as today we’d booked our return journey on the bus back to Chengdu, a long eight hour journey.  In fact, we’d planned making a very big day of it and returning all the way to Tina’s home town of Shawan.  This necessitated us to catch a second bus late in the afternoon from Chengdu to Shawan.

"I look how enchanting castle peak, castle peak see me, also should be so," here is a sentence of Xin Qiji's ci poem "He Xin Lang", he was the famous poet of Song Dynasty, his style of ci poetry was both bold and graceful. Chinese residential environment has always been very particular about geomancy, most of the old houses are fronting water and with hills on the back, is to rely on the mountains, the river is the source of life, the front of the house is best both sunny and open, in fact, stress is “Nature and Humanity”, and natural blend. People living in it, mind and body are both at ease, spiritual pleasure. The clay tile roofs is now rare, most have been replaced by reinforced concrete houses. Read more…

空前天在家就订好了回珠海的高铁票,昨天吩咐我将他所有的衣服都从抽屉里取出放沙发上。晚上他回家一边听法语一边整好了行李。今天一早就跑汉口去考试。考试时间是9:00AM-12:00AM,结果他不到12点就回家了。我马上给他做饭,他一边准备冲凉,一边对我说不用做饭,我问几点的火车,他说不用我管,又说下点面条就行,我说那就做个番茄炒蛋吧。他不理我,洗完澡,关上房门,还冲我说:“你是聋子?叫你不做饭。” Read more…
