Chinese Tourists in Holland

Wednesday, June 7th, 2006

After a month in Holland it’s good to be back in the dirty heat of Shanghai.
Being a China News addict I wasn’t let down. Dutch Media love items about China, from little funny tidbits about how the film MI 3 may not be released in China because there is too much laundry hanging in […]

Queen Elizabeth II | Shanghai Cruises

Sunday, March 12th, 2006

Last Friday the oldest, still sailing cruise ship arrived in Shanghai. For an aspiring international city as Shanghai that should be kind of an event. The Shanghai Morning Daily even published about it on its Saturday front page.
Friday morning we got up early to meet my uncle and aunt from the ship. The week […]

Queen Elizabeth II Docks in Shanghai

Sunday, February 26th, 2006

Sources in the city’s Waigaoqiao Exit and Entry Quarantine Station say … the Queen Elizabeth II, the world’s oldest ocean liner still in service, is expected to visit Shanghai in March.
Stop the sources and the suspense here. The ship will dock March, 10 and passengers will be setting foot on Shanghai soil around 09:00. […]

Adult Diapers | China Trains

Tuesday, January 17th, 2006

According to a post in zonaeuropa [063] Marketing Ideas, traveling by train for the Chinese New Year makes grown-ups babies again, at least as far as the diapers go. It’s so crowded even the toilets are booked.
One more reason to avoid leaving the house during Spring Festival, provided you have a choice […]

Bund Sightseeing Tunnel |Stroboscopic Ride

Thursday, January 12th, 2006

A friend is over from Holland, which means playing a bit of a tour guide.
It’s fun to show someone the spots of Shanghai you like yourself, actually it’s even more fun to show them those spots but resist writing about all of them as I like those places just the way they are […]

Christmas Eve | Chengdu Travel

Monday, December 26th, 2005

It was supposed to be a Christmas performance we were going to attend. It turned out to be a disco with X-mas decoration.
Christmas is good business for entertainment venues as Chinese take it as an extra chance to have a party.
Each table in the place had a nice sign with the minimum […]

Chengdu Hotel | Elevator Part 2

Saturday, December 24th, 2005

Contrary to yesterday tonight there was no guy sitting next to the elevator. Instead the chair had moved into the elevator with two girls handing out businesscards while whispering, ni yao anmo ma?.
Again I declined the offer for massage. Maybe tomorrow evening they will already be in my room, including the chair.
We’ll leave […]

Chengdu Elevators | Travel China

Friday, December 23rd, 2005

We are staying in Chengdu, capital of Sichuan, visiting W.’s family.
Just had a nice dinner with one of her friends and as Chengdu dialect is the mode of communication I took an early leave to the hotel so W. and her friend could catch up without being bothered by me.
We stay in the […]

Harbin Travel | Maybe Later

Friday, November 25th, 2005

I know, I promised the 1.5 reader of my blog I would stay clear of the Shanghai Daily. Just as I had detoxed myself from the online version I bought today’s paper version and saw this ad.

Bring your own water I suggest.
For those of you who like to know what really is going […]

Chinese Can Buy the Moon | Safes Them The Trip

Friday, October 21st, 2005

Pick your acre…

Property is hot here in China. I wrote before about the real estate bubble in Shanghai so I won’t repeat.
The moon though is the newest property you can invest in. One acre of Moon sets you back a mere 298 RMB, about 37 US dollars. Not much considering you get an […]
