I have used to check your updates through all kinds of possible technology devices. - if it's in the past I would jumped up and question you why didn't you call me or mail me why you left me alone?  Now I am kind of  enjoy our friendly communicating in this quiet way.

I got to know you got a new boyfriend, broke up, back again, I got to know you got promoted at work, I saw you changed a new hair style, as same as the superstar that we both liked, I even know the name of your dog. 

Every screen flash brings a new update of someone else. From feeling left out to acceptance with joy. There must experienced an unknown period of dark antinomy. It surly has been blue.

This last connection we benefited from this solid&dull technology - it won't be instant all the time, it's not face to face, but thank god we're still keeping in touch, I still miss the letters flying between our two cities, the figs we stole together, the laughs we left on the swings. I guess you must do miss these too, at least it might happened in one of your dreams.

It seems it's not that important, but it's like the vinegar in fried tomato & egg, the cumin on the lamb stick. They are all added as accessories but meanwhile it's so necessary.

    I come from a country where there are large buildings and evidence of complex engineering that are dating from well; over 6000  years ago, yet i d ...
    it does gives me a hard time to locate you from your description:)

    Anyways, aging it is a problem to China definitely I agree with you. But it also a global problem, countries like Japan, Germany, Italy are all seeking a solution to solve this problem.  for China, the topic " China has stepped into an aging society" has listed in the news long way before we started. several years ago I've read that on paper.

    Conclusion is China has aware of this problem and solution towards it would be consider new young immigrations as well as create more related job opportunities.

    As China is now in an economic transition period - also several years ago it pointed out its moving towards technology creation direction. the economic structure will change GDP will have a fall in between the junction. But what we can't predict is,  it might raise afterwards.

    The good hearted kids still will be taking care of their elderly parents and the baddies will continue not taking care of their elderly parents. I've emphasized many times, this situation is not for everyone in China. It did happen, many times in those weird places. which I reckon is a neglect during the fast developing of the economy.

    The China media... they do block a lot of information but it doesn't really block the ones wanted to see more :)  actually most media do the same, other countries media also relatively only report the bad side of other countries of course sometimes themselves.  You also can see a lot of negative news about other countries in China and vice versa.

    no..pollution is not a natural disaster... but it was controlled by government, somehow it improved for a couple of months then it become bad again (I saw people posted in my wechat group) well -- i'm not in China at the moment I don't have a say here I 'll go home "experience" it by myself ...not quite looking forward to it on this point as I saw the pictures

    I come from a country where there are large buildings and evidence of complex engineering that are dating from well; over 6000  years ago, yet i don't feel the need to mention this when i don't want like the way a conversation is going.

    Yes I do know that China allows more than 1 child now, but this will do nothing to help those retiring in the next 10-15 years (or longer) as they will still all be children and unable to contribute to society in a meaningful way and care for the elderly as they still need care themselves.

    At the same time the elderly population will peak and there won't be the hospital resources to cope for this, or maybe even the financial resources within families as they will be focused on the child's education.
    I predict there will be a surge in elderly death from unnatural causes as either poverty or family pressure will make them think they are a 'burden'.

    Having lived and worked in China for a number of years, i have observed much that Chinese tv would not like people outside to see.
    Whereas at home, exposing all the darker sides of life is seen as an attempt to address it and find a solution.

    By sticking it's head in the sand about many things or pretending it is not happening won't make things go away.
    Take the example of reclassifying smog and polluted air (a man made problem) as a 'natural disaster' in Beijing and Tianjin officials seem to be pretending there is nothing they can do.

    I for one don't believe tv because certainly in China it is not unbiased.
    For the rest of the world, you can access multiple points of view on the same topic you can make up your own mind.
