"Countries with more gender equality have better economic growth. Companies with more women leaders perform better. Peace agreements that include women are more durable. Parliaments with more women enact more legislation on key social issues such as health, education, anti-discrimination and child support. The evidence is clear: equality for women means progress for all." UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon But do we even need economy-politics related reasons for gender equality? ...

“In your Foreign land….” (在你们外国。。。)
A commentor’s displeasure with a part of my first post proved that I need to write about stereotypes SOON. I’m afraid this will end up being a VERY long post, since there are stereotypes everywhere but in Asia the ones directed to foreigners makes many of us ignore/forget about those we have towards others. But I’ll do my best to keep it clean direct ( 清洁直云 ) like trash trucks in my city, Hangzhou. Because, get ready for the unpopular opinion: I wouldn’t ...

Expectations, expectations, expectations. Your fed up blogger here thinks the less expectations and assumptions are, the greener is the grass and the better is life.

    Hi, Maierwai. Admittedly, it is fun to read your blogs, as some of your stories about your life on exotic lands are intriguing and hilarious. However, I would also like to read about things you have experienced that would be billed as positive. Is there anything that your really appreciated when living abroad, e.g. in China, Japan, the UK and etc. I don't think that you are an overly cynical person, and you simply can't be critical of everything, right?

    Maierwei: That question is common worldwide. They want to see if you have vision, if you plan to stay long in the company and take more responsibilities. They w ...
    Sorry for the late reply. Interesting. I will remember it in my next interview. Im working as a foreign teacher in China now, teaching my mother language in university. At the interview, they asked me a question like this
    "How long do you plan to teach in our university?"

    And I answered
    "At least for two years"

    And they accepted me. I don't know if my answer have nothing to do with it or not, but Im just trying to be honest with them hahaha.
