Share China's Traffic Violation Penalties Are A Big Joke!
pnp 2016-8-11 14:03
China's traffic violation penalties are so light, they don't act as a deterrent at all! For instance, just today on CCTV News, a motorist was chased through busy city streets by a traffic policeman on motorcycle at high speed, weaving in and out of lanes, endangering other road users. The motorist finally stopped at a set of traffic lights, only because his path was blocked by other vehicles waiting at the lights. He was found to be driving without a licence, which was withdrawn bec ...

Share What Does It Mean To Have A 5000-Year Old Civilization?
pnp 2016-7-31 13:13
China claims to have a civilization of 5000 years old; well and good, few would dispute that. However, that claim stands out in stark contrast with the social behavior of its people, a behavior which is anything but civilized! Many foreigners have personal encounters with their behavior as well as seen it played out on national television. The Chinese don't obey their nation's laws, rules and regulations, be it tarffic laws, pollution laws, food safety laws, etc. For ...

Share China's Food Safety Concern
pnp 2016-7-3 12:44
The NPC Standing Committee has just reviewed the the food safety situation in China after the implementation of the food safety law in October last year. The report card makes for poor reading, with red ink all over. There are still many areas that fall short of the law. For instance, the use of 'gutter oil', made from food leftovers collected from restaurants, is still prevalent, and a major concern for consumers. Others include the misuse of pesticides in farming, arti ...

Share The Chinese Are Ashamed Of Their Chinese Names
pnp 2016-7-1 11:43
Many Chinese, especially those of the younger generation, are ashamed of their Chinese names, and when they have learned their ABC, they change their names to Western ones. That is a puzzle to many foreigners. Chinese parents go to great lengths to choose a name for their children; they consult the almanac and ensure that all the essential elements of earth, fire and water are in the names, because they want the best for their children, but little do their know that their childre ...

The man who is responsible for all this is UK PM David Cameron.To save his own skin and ensure re-election and to placate his restive backbenchers he promised them a referendum, a huge gamble.He got re-elected but lost everything, including his job, upon the referendum. A leader is elected ...

Share Foreigners Caught In Drug Bust!

Recently, Guangzhou customs and police arrested a number of foreigners involved in drug trafficking. Two Africans passing through customs raised the suspicion of alert officers.Their hand carry bags looked innocent enough, but upon questioning, their nervous behavior raised the alarm; they were put through X-ray, and lo and behold, their stomachs and guts were packed with drugs wrapped into small balls.They were immediately arrested and sent to hospital for gut clearan ...

There is a storm brewing in the forum thread, 'How do you like Foreign Minister's outburst towards Canadian reporter.' FM Wang's outburst should be seen in the right perspective.He is, after all, human and, faced with the constant, repetitive and vexatious barrage of questioning by foreign reporters on the same stale issue of China's human rights, often without regard to the huge progress made in that area, he reacted in the most natural way! Anyone in his shoes would ...

Share A Nation Going Deaf!
pnp 2016-6-13 13:41
Yesterday, CCTV ran a program highlighting the huge number of Chinese with serious hearing impairment, and many are around 18 years old. These people spend a lot of time walking around with earphones plugged to their ears, listening either to music or movies, and because the surrounding is very noisy, they have to turn up the volume above the danger levels, damaging their hearing even more. China is indeed a very noisy country; there is very lot noise wherever one goes, and the situati ...
