Share Protect the Buddha from those Selfie-takers!
mutafire 2015-8-25 19:58
It is always hypnotizing to be in a Buddhist temple. I will never get used to it. Each time I am in a temple I shut up and gaze at the statues and take in all details about the temple, but one thing I also cannot resist is try to capture that golden beauty on film. And that is an issue not just for me, but for many tourists and temple minders. I have been to many holy sites in China, The Jaded Buddha Temple in Shanghai, The Grottoes in Datong, Temple ...

Share An Obituary to a Cute Rabbit I Enjoyed Eating.
mutafire 2015-8-21 22:59
It has happened to me before, so I know how this works. It ends well. I was young, my mother told me to slaughter a chicken so that it could be prepared for dinner. I did the needful: tied its legs, pinned its two wings together and with my left hand on the legs and the right one on the winds, I sliced the knife into its neck. The chicken gave the best fight it could, blood gushed from the snapped neck and jettisoned about a meter into the air as if it was all ...

Share I Nearly Shut down Shanghai Airport and Other Annoying Mishaps
mutafire 2015-8-21 22:26
Well, it was easy, first I had a big thick black coat, Black Timberland boots a chipped pair of jeans and I had a hairstyle like Mr. T. And I am African. Then my bag looked like a proper bomb in the scanner. As required, I dropped my belt, coins, pen, boots into the security- check basket and I passed the scanner without any incident, but my three carry-on bags were not that lucky. The guy from behind the monitor issued one look at me and back to his screen and demande ...

She has been guiding tourists for 10 years since she graduated with a master’s degree in tourism management from Shanxi University, the same university from whi ...

‘Americans make the Worst Tourists’
American tourists suck. Calm down, it is not from some scientific journal or some world class survey. But still, if I was American, I would take heed. A seasoned tour guide, of ten years, Jing Li, who plies her trade in the impoverished coal producing Chinese province of Shanxi revealed this in an extensive interview I had with her aboard a tour bus on my recent trip to the province. The question I put to her was simple: You have seen all ...

Lewis Hamilton - Jerk or Innocent Winner?

But Object, which campaigns against sexism, said he should apologise for his 'selfish and inconsiderate' actions. Others called the driving ace 'an embarrassment to the UK', while another said it showed he was an 'ignorant clown'&nbs ...

Share Wombs for Rent are not such a Bad Idea
mutafire 2015-4-14 07:07
CCTV reported on 10 April that the Chinese authorities are upping up their clampdown on surrogate pregnancies, a situation where couples who for some reason cannot bear children, have their fertilized egg planted in another woman for the rest of the gestation period. CCTV said experts say that the practice, dubbed “wombs-for-rent,” poses health risks to the women and raises legal and ethical questions. The arti ...
