Share O, How The Times Have Changed!
KIyer 2018-10-12 10:20
For a long time we had politicians from the two major blocs trying to sound or appear to different basic values from each other to appeal to voters (even though they were basically the same). Now we have politicians from both major blocs trying to sound as if they all hold the same basic values to try and pull down those from their own party who are changing the status quo! Something has rocked their long established, smooth running gravy train. For a long tim ...

Share Welcome to Macao

Welcome to Macao
Part 1 “Macao used to be quaint.” “It’s a great place for photographing.” “It has some great food.” That’s what my fiancé told me before our one-day Macao trip. We took a train from Guangzhou to Zhuhai Gongbei Station, where we were to cross the border. Zhuhai’s Gongbei Station and the northern tip of Macao are side by side. We followed the streams of people, walked along the maze-like passageways and after 20 minutes, we were in Macao. “Well, hone ...

Limpy, The Egyptian King
​​“Meow! Meow!” a sad voice chirped from somewhere. As we hunted for our regular evening rental bikes, the distress call became louder. My boyfriend worked from home so he was ready for his ‘excursion’. “Meow meow”, “I’ve been hearing that all day” he commented, as we located our rental bikes on what we dubbed ‘Southeast Asian street’ “Meow, meow, meow…” I hopped on my bike and turned to confirm my boyfriend was doing the same, but alas there he was stooped over advancing ...

An Innocent Chinese Girl Goes to India for a Week
New comer Before getting on the plane to India, I became hesitant. Suddenly I felt like not going because I was envisioning mayhem in temples, strange smells, no public toilets, unsafe water, diarrhea, abandoned cows, and of course, the heat. But my mind struck that thought away like the way I would smash a mosquito against the mud-brick wall I grew up with in Sichuan. Four hours later, I landed in Singapore. ‘Getting closer’, I again became excited. After all, traveling in Indi ...

A Chengdu Day
​​I awoke on the sunshine flooded balcony. Rising up from my Hello Kitty towel that served as my make-shift bed, I witnessed the dawning of a new day in one of the most beautiful cities, at least in China, but perhaps in the world, Chengdu. My immediate view was of grey-bricked traditional Chinese architecture with modern skyscrapers acting as a backdrop, the prolific green of trees lining the streets and a rare but clear blue sky, all invigorating my spirit to seize the day. My ...

The Oven
Today is a bit cool. Rain has washed away much of the humidity. A gentle breeze soothes the travels. Travelling is so much more pleasant than only a day ago. Chongqing, the oven, a moniker that is well earned. I suppose temperatures could be hotter, or we could be in hell.Walking -- even for a few blocks -- made sweat flow. Quickly, my throat became parched. Water, I needed water, cold water--and lots of it. This happened to be a day selected for travelling ...

Share Life-Long Learning
MichaelM 2018-10-4 01:56
Many people quit their formal education after just 12 years. Others go on from 4 to 8 years more. However, everyone should dedicate themselves to be life-long learners. I just turned 60 years old in September. It is hard for me to believe that I'm this age. However, my zeal and zest for learning has only increased with age. I study more, read more and learn more now than I did when I was in college. I'm an educator. Any teacher, professor or educator of any kind, certainly should be dedic ...

Today is October 1st, the National Day. Today is also the 69th birthday of the People's Republic of China. From the bottom of my heart, I want to say "Happy Birthday!" to my mothercountry. I really feel proud of being a Chinese.

Share Let‘s cook for ourselves when possible!
SEARU 2018-9-18 21:17
So delighted to see you here! But I have some wonder or worry about your habit! I always think industrial food products are only fit for occasional usage such as when you are hungry far away from home rather than for daily life as meals! The reason is simple: These goods are lack of vitamins and contain too much chemicals for special tastes or long-time storage! One businessman told such a story:"I used to have one package of milk at breakfast. Once a time I forgot half bottle of that well-known ...

Share Do you wash rice before cooking?
SEARU 2018-9-18 09:11
About "washing up rice": According to some saying on radio, some nutrition on the surface of grainswould be washed away as you clean them up with water, specially when you do to Chinese yellow-tiny-rice with which there is vitamin B12 that is important to health! However I always believe that it is unacceptable if the raw material from the shop is directly put into the pot. Once-washing is enough for hygiene security and second one is unnecessary and may become waste of money! ...
