    The government finally realized that the counntry's population became older and older and not enough 'new blood' was coming forth. Thus they decided to have a new 'allowance' of two children. However,the country still has a big problem with too many men and not enough women, due to the fact that a female baby fetus was aborted [often still is] and a baby girl was killed.

    I have been in China long enough - almost 10 years - to have seen many 'well mannered Chinese'. Therefore, you should also mention - for comparison's sake - well mannered Westerners. You say to blow one's nose into a handkerchief is bad manners... hmm... but using two fingers  and blowing one's nose is refined? How about spitting onto the floor...at a dinner table?

    Most people who have never visited or lived in China may bear all kinds of misconception about China. Some even asked if Chinese still live in caves and move around in sedan chairs carried on shoulders of laborers.
    This is not strange but shows either China does not disseminate sufficient information to allow the world to know and learn or that there exist some sources whose purpose is just to ill speak about China. Let it be the case, but people should see for themselves.
    For food, please understand that with more than five thousand years of imperialism, Chinese emperors had enjoyed food that few could taste in a few lives times! Some preparation methods were forgotten!
