hard to generalize..
In some cases,for instance,I even do not know my neighbour where are they from?,but definitely ,,,they are not local citizens...
they only talked to me,do not put the trash here,put to there,
they only knocked my door,do not let the kids so noisy..(my partners kids climb the floor,they do not climb,they jump )
My partner claimed me more chinese are cold and selfish,
I asked why,
she said,
she often say some men beated women on the street,but no body go to stop him...but more watchers...

...............:)
***always to be yourself***

it just takes some steps

if u say hello to them,they will reward u a hello......

People in the streets do not care other issues of other families coz they think this is a offense thing to the couple who has quarrels .....

chinese like to solve problems by themselves,they do not want others to disturb them.

they just more independent .

Let me share some of my experiences here with you.

I am a professional magician and I do ok for myself (not rich but not poor) and I want to give back to society using my skills.

1. I went to a hospital and offered to perform in the children ward for free during holidays to brighten a bit their stay in the hospital. I was replied that this would disturb the other patients at the hospital and they need quiet. Fair enough.

2. I then contacted an orphanage in Pudong and offered to perform for free on chinese holidays, even teach magic to the children, all for free. I was rejected because "nobody does that in China" and "learning magic is not a necessary skill".

3. I gave my blood and was asked if I wanted to help the organization in any way. I was ecstatic, I offered to perform for free at blood drives to encourage people to give their blood. I was replied "we would prefer if you'd give us money".

So, sure, I could give money, I do actually, I give some money every year to the Giant Panda center in Chengdu, I just can't give to everybody and was hoping I could help in other ways. But people seem to not want my help, they are just interested in getting money. Money sure is important but happiness is important too and I can give a lot of that.

So in the end I just have to ask myself : what's the point ?
