Wednesday, July 13th, 2005

Just listened to an audio interview (is that already called a podview..) by Pacific Epoch with Paypal China’s country manager Jeff Liao.

Interestingly enough they won’t charge anything directly in their Chinese version. They seem to want to get market share first. I […]

Monday Evening Rant in Shanghai

Tuesday, June 7th, 2005

It’s hot and I just had a trial class Mandarin. Although having
studied it before it was time to get a real teacher involved again.
Together with a friend we spent one hour, in which our levels were
decided. Somewhere in between beginner and intermediate it is. But this

To start ranting about my […]

Property Bubble or Not?

Thursday, May 26th, 2005

There has been a lot of talk recently about the property bubble in the Shanghai real estate market. Prices have soared to more than 20000 Kuai/Square Meter and they just seem to like the sky.

I really need to post

Saturday, May 7th, 2005

I know, I know. I have an excuse though. My laptop starts cooking after 20 minutes as the fan is refusing it’s duty. Can’t use it for a long time.

Sunday, April 24th, 2005

Had a nice trip to the Shangyang market again, the part where they sell real stuff like real meat and vegetables. Before that we had wandered in Maominglu finding summer clothes. My white face seems to be a price increase indicator. One saleswoman told me that 400 Kuai is only 40 euri, well, […]

Humorous Chinese Comments

Thursday, April 14th, 2005

Whenever I start laughing out loud in front of my screen I might as well share it with the rest of the world. I do understand though if my humour is not the same as yours. Greenpeace just released a report about genetically modified rice in China and says “The GE industry is out of […]
