Chinese Summer Provocations 2015-08-01
- Anming - Provocation is nothing new in western popular culture. It came a long way from Gaultier’s 1990 Madonna bra to Lady Gaga’s VMA meat dress. Not to mention my bearded compatriot Conchita Wurst, who sang „ Rise like a phoenix “ at last year’s Eurovision Song Contest and scaried ...

Money for nothing and chicks for free 2015-07-11

You say you want a revolution... 2015-05-31

Fifty Shades of White 2015-05-17
- Anming - Summer season started, no doubt. My Beipingyang consumption doubled, I started misusing my dumpling dough roller for after-work mojitos and I got my umbrella out of the closet. Right, some laowais, me included, worry about getting sunburnt. Spending most of ...
