Truth Be Told
Just seconds after I got my finger cut by the sharp edge of the broken glass panel of a roadside bulletin board when I tried to flag down a cab, I felt that I was blessed, because the little accident just ocurred steps away from a drugstore. The cut was not serious at all, but it would appear gross to leave it untreated, as I was on my way to a meeting with a prospective business partner whom I had never met before.

Sandwich English Is Laughable
Sandwich English ( 散装英语 ), which is different from pidgin English, refers to speeches in Chinese that are profusely punctuated with English words, usually to a fault. This unique linguistic hybrid is widely spoken among the Chinese employees at foreign companies’ establishments in China, usually when no foreigners are engaged in the conversation. Pretty ironic, huh? If you are one of those employees, you would highly likely be bombarded on a daily basis with p ...

Stories of Chopsticks Going Global
I went abroad several times before, mostly on business trips to western European countries, and my destinations usually were small towns where my company’s manufacturing facilities were located. In a town named Schweinfurt in south Germany, which has a population of around 50,000 people, including 6,000 American troops stationed there, there is a Chinese Resturant called Mayflower, and whenever my stomach’s craving for Chinese cuisine reached the boiling point during my stay at the town ...

My Only Red Carpet Experience
It is nothing uncommon that people entertain themselves by feeding on celebrity juice, as the occasional sneak peek into famous people’s lives sometimes is too enticing to resist. As an ordinary office worker, I am also not immune to it, though I would not be as obsessive as the teenager dubbed ”Hongqiao Yijie” (虹桥一姐) whose antics of relentlessly chasing after celebrities have recently gone viral on the internet. I used to be very much infatuated with pop singers, whose songs I still ...
