Share Unmask Nature
2014-11-2 20:44
To survive in the city, all the sensory organs should be well masked. And this is particularly true in Xiasha the place where I live. At nightfall if only I am in the room, I will shut the window, for the nauseating stink of burned garbage, food spoilage, vehicle exhaust and industry waste gas, the particular air of urban life, is precisely reaching the uttermost. I thought this cost of physical health is a must pay so that one may enjoy the expediency of city life. But in fact, the price w ...

Share Chinese marriage, family still first
2014-9-3 11:50
Some people say that marriage is the tomb of love; and I think this word is genuinely true in a Chinese marriage where romantic love either dies out or replaced by the affection between family members. “ 家境 ”-the social status, property, and background of all the family members in a household-is still a considerable factor influencing the relationship of couples under married or cohabiting in China, despite the ideology of young Chinese has been more or less ...

Dilemma: an elder queue-jumper
July 27, 2014 Hangzhou, Zhejiang- Affected by Typhoon Matmo, it was raining dogs and cats outside. While I walked out of Zhejiang library at 6 pm, water had risen to knee-level in some places. The bad weather made everything hard. When I finally got to the nearby bus station, my trousers were waterlogged. Heavy weather, long queuing line, and slow traffic contributed to anxiety and impatience. So when Line 28 finally departed in and its front gate just faced me, I could see a long pr ...

FIFA World Cup: Lose Game and Face
In China there goes a well-known saying; losing face is moreterrible than losing agame.Owing to some Brazil soccer hooligans' violent and aggressive behaviors-burningtheir national flags, committing arson,creating conflicts-after the match, I can say, Brazil not only lost badly against Germany in a game but also lost it's face badly as the 2014 FIFA World Cup host nation. Admittedly, it was not a thrilling close gamefor Brazil was greatly ...

Lady First or not?
This was a man's world. But it wouldn't be nothing, nothing without a woman or a girl. Men conquered the whole world, but it's women who conquered them. Dramatically, gentleman and lady kept the balance. It was the era of Lady First . The last hundred years witnesses the rising power of woman. With theadvent of woman' right, apart from the traditional nursing and caring area, women are now more likely to succeed in those man dominant areas: education, politics, economics, scien ...

    I think those who cheat are not necessarily the moneybags. Those who involve in an extramarital affair may also be the ordinary people. Monogamy is actually imported goods for Chinese because we had a long history of polygamy as routine even for the dirt poor people who marry the child bribe. Some criticize that polygamy is the nature of Chinese males as they would rather choose to have mistresses than have a legitimate divorce. Love the new and loathe the old is actually the nature of humankind even for women the most advocates of monogamy. And that's why we need a marriage out of both love and utilitarianism. Love is delicate flower requiring fertile soil. The beauty of flower and stability of ground make a happy marriage.

  • Chinese marriage, family still first 2014-9-12 13:27

    Love is, as the Communists decreed, a "bourgeois" thing - not worthy of communist subjects. It is good to know that Communism in China has made women more equal with men in that a man can now only marry one. But marriages contracted out of pure love are the West's ideal, and such ideals spread easily in societies so inexperienced in romance as the Chinese. It is typically the women who wish to be seen in a white bridesgown and to do their ceremony in a church; Chinese males are absolutely passive and oblige without much enthusiasm, but oblige they often do.

    Neither marriages out of love nor the utilitarian marriages of convenience favoured by the Chinese hold the promise of everlasting bliss: we in the West divorce too frequently, and in China, the wealthy men almost invariably maintain mistresses and second wives as if polygamy had never been abolished. They may not divorce - but then they cheat, and often they cheat with their legitimate wife's tacit acknowledgement. Once the woman is past her child-bearing age she will not want to be alone and on her own, and the man might not wish to lose face.
