Share Will China and USA fight in our Lifetime?
mutafire 2014-12-11 07:49
“If China continues its impressive economic growth over the next few decades, the US and China are likely to engage in an intense security competition with considerable potential for war,” wrote American realist, John Mearsheimer, in his opening remarks of his argument that ‘China’s rise will not be peaceful at all .’ Thucydides wrote that the Peloponnesian War was inspired by the fear which the rise of Athens caused in an established Sparta. This has come to ...

Share A Shower a Day …In Your Dreams
mutafire 2014-9-30 04:45
“How many students are in this school?” I asked. About a thousand, I was told “Where are the showers?” I asked. ‘There are no showers here,’ said the kid. I went blank, silent if you will. That was me in Shandong Linyi. This just past summer I chose to volunteer as an English teacher at Menglianggu Middle school. Menglianggu is in Linyi. I loved my summer adventure, the kids loved ...

For Your Travel Orgasm, Ask Jinan
Self-contained, elegant and classic – it’s hard to write about Jinan without appearing as if in league with the city’s tourism board. I don’t even know the mayor, I am a mere laowai, I just like this city, here is why. The waters With 72 springs inside the urban area, Jinan is known for its waters, the very symbol of the city is a giant blue spring roll. Of course having springs means no subway, but the waters are worth it, big among them are the Daming Lake, the Springs B ...

Share Meeting My Translator
mutafire 2014-9-23 08:55
I had to undertake a certain activity and from it all, it is the translator that came out as my biggest highlight and this is his and my story. I entered the quite room, full of women, Chinese women…fat, tall, slim and thin, and each in company of a ward. I was a little intimidated, but was ushered to a couch next to my translator, a fellow man and it was a big relief. He introduced himself, an honourable fellow from a foreign language school. Tall, young, handsome, shy a ...

China’s Abortion Scene is Inspiring
As someone who is passionate about abortion, among other issues, I trekked to Jinan Maternity and Children Healthcare Hospital to check out the abortion scene in China…fly on the wall style. On the third floor of the hospital a crowd of couples wait for their names to be called out on the PA. Girls, women, ladies and men stream in and out of the establishment clasping papers detailing appointments, medical tests results and other whatnots. At th ...

Share The Biggest Hit in China Right Now
mutafire 2014-8-21 11:34
Arguably. It is a cheap song, really. Crude lyrics, lyrics over a common techno beat. But this song has won over the hearts of many Chinese folks, from kids to the advanced in age. When I first heard it, I was like, hey it is just one of those songs, but three weeks later, it was bigger. Advertisers are looping it along their sales chants, restaurants and street vendors are blasting it and by my calculation, it should be very popular in the Karaoke booths. T ...

Summer Jam
Is it Summer where you are? Are you at the beach or at least in some cool water? If you answered yes to the first question and no to the second, here is my advice... ask for permission to go to the top floor of the nearest tall building, open the window and jump. Reporting from the cleanest, quietest, least crowded, cheapest beach in all of the Middle Kingdom, this is Mutafire in Rizhao.

Share Not So Han Hao
mutafire 2014-8-9 10:59
I went to my favourite restaurant this other day and I saw it all, it still haunts me to this day. And it was just the first in a string of signs that seem to indicate that Chinese people are only united on national issues… See a huge Chinese brother, bare muscles, tattoos and all accidentally tripped a woman splattering her food all across the restaurant. Naturally, the woman freaks and throws a tantrum at the brother, the brother doesn’t apologise, he stands up shou ...

Share Letter to My Chinese Father-In-Law
mutafire 2014-8-3 08:50
Dear Sir, I hope this letter finds you in the best of health and wish the day is a cool one there in Harbin, unlike here in Shandong, where it is hell-grade hot as I write. I write this letter to protest your reaction to my dating your daughter. She has told me all about it. Man to man, I dare say, I am ashamed on your behalf and will pretend you were drunk in all the instances you did the things you did. When she told you she was in love with me, ...

Share Does the Christian God Hate Women?
mutafire 2014-7-31 16:32
Paul wrote: “There is no difference between Jews and Gentiles, between slaves and free people, between men and women; you are all one in union with Christ Jesus.” (Galatians 3:28). This call has, however, done little to check the unthinkable oppression and discrimination women have gone through for millennia. Many may say illiteracy, poverty, culture and sheer male chauvinism are to blame. But does anyone suspect that the very scriptures and religions we trust are th ...
