Share The Christmas Spirit
KIyer 2019-8-15 10:17
Met with a grumpy old man, a friend of mine with a heart of gold today. He always affectionately addresses me as "son". He is in hospital on a long recovery. I took my son along as he likes this curmudgeon. It was our "Christmas presence" for him. He was very happy to see us and in his usual manner gave my son some advice fondly with his put-on "grinch face". He always spoke about not giving gifts on occasions, not wasting money and that too borrowed money... He wants the younger generation to ...

Share The flowers
LanaLiao 2019-8-12 23:56
Dear friends, long time no see! Almost the girls, I think, love this or that, these or those, flowers, living flowers, or artificial flowers. Me, too. 搜索 复制 At home, especially at summer, once a day I water the jonquil and asparagus fern. The aloe, we all know, is tolerant to drought, so, I sometimes water it. I am unable to plant the jonquil, asparagus fern and aloe, I get tired, because previous living flowers, when I took home alive, ...

Share Lost-in-Feelings Programme Set
shehemego 2019-8-4 11:00
A violent emperor is not stopped by telling him what he should do. He knows what it is good and what is wrong but just forgets, forgets, forgets. He is so deep in feeling full of himself, so full of excitement, what people call madness instead. He is the victim who people hope him to be good but don’t help him out. I can’t control my feelings. I keep wanting excitement of laughter and keep feeding myself entertainments, keep watching people laugh and make jokes. I keep wa ...

Share "Democracy" of the West taken to the extreme.
huaqiao 2019-7-28 12:49
The "free world" under the influence of the west has been following the western concept of "democracy", "freedom" and "human rights" (DFHR) for decades citing the "right to cast vote" for a government as the "ultimate right" of every individual. However, in many cases and countries, it seems more like the right to cast lots and hoping for the best outcome. The Gettysburg Address by Abraham Lincoln introduced a famous quote which says a government should be "of the people, by the ...

I can’t imagine that it has been three months for last topic. Every day I remind myself to insist in writing the English blog. But it seems that there is no time to do this every day. Certainly it can been said to be a excuse. It has passed half for 2019, I can’t remember what I have done for the past six months. I only know I was very busy every day. It still seems that all time spent for the work. But I can’t also can fee ...

Share (How To) Be A Good Foreigner In China
MichaelM 2019-7-19 02:19
1. Obey the law and obey the authorities. You know that drugs aren't permitted in most societies. Certainly not China. Children do not grow up in China with the burden of temptation for drugs no matter how hard or seemingly harmless they may be. This is a positive thing no matter how you look at it. Recently, there were several foreigners who were involved either through recreational use or trafficking drugs in Xuzhou. It is strange to me that other foreigners are discussing 'will they ...

Share Is Hong Kong So Special?
MichaelM 2019-7-3 08:37
I was recently in Hong Kong for 3 weeks. I'd heard about Hong Kong all of my life. This was my third trip there, but, all of the other trips were very short. This time I had the opportunity to discover this mystical, historic place. As a writer for several different publications, I can usually get access to people and places that most people can't get access to. This trip was no different. So, I took my credentials and set out to find out all I could about this place. Some people si ...

Share 5 Things To Never Say To Foreigners
MichaelM 2019-7-2 16:56
If you've traveled in Europe, Australia, most of Africa or America, you know that some things are quite different than China. There are taboos when it comes to conversation. Especially if you just met someone. Some subjects are off limits and should always be avoided. Here are the top five things to never talk about with or say to Westerners. 1. Money - Do not ever ask a Westerner how much money they make. That is very offensive to a Westerner. It is considered very rude. Don't ask how ...

Share Happy birthday to you! (or not :-) )
J.E.Overington 2019-7-2 08:23
Is it we who buy your cake or is it you who provides your cake on your birthday? Who invented the idea of a birthday cake? Why celebrate such a day? The Germans are credited with making cakes and putting candles on it. The Germans also put candles on forest trees during the winter solstice festival... and that became the Christmas tree. The famous birthday song we sing started as "Good Morning to You". As to why we make such a big deal about birthdays: marking the event and showing ...
