Man Bites Panda Bites Back

Thursday, September 21st, 2006

In the category, almost Friday, another Panda story.

Here’s the summary
Drunken immigrant worker (note that as always a distinction is made between city slickers and those beyond the urban border) Zhang visits Beijing Zoo, jumps into the panda enclosure, hugs the panda and gets bitten.
Nothing weird about that, invading on the Panda privacy should […]

Funny Shanghai Classifieds

Monday, August 7th, 2006

Well funny this Shanghai classifieds , it’s just from what perspective you look at it. In China there are no anti-age and other discrimination laws that prevent employers to be very selective who they hire.
It’s fairly common to see advertisements with age limits, at times combined with “female” only apply.
I hadn’t seen this […]

China Northern Airlines Guidance

Monday, July 10th, 2006

While doing some research on Chinese Airlines I used an old bookmark of China Northern Airlines. Their main domain is re-directing now to China Southern Airlines that has absorbed them. Surfing a bit more on that old bookmarked site, I ran into this beauty of company philosophy .

Guided by the spirit of the 15th […]

….the survey found 3.8 percent of sophomore girls have had sex experience, compared with 7.9 percent of junior girls and 24.8 percent of senior girls.
The survey team said their […]

Airco Cold |

Saturday, July 23rd, 2005

It has been pretty hot lately here in Shanghai. To sweat is nice for loosing weight but even that has its limits. The several Airco’s at home are very busy, the airco’s in the city department stores etc are also on temperature ‘Ice” eventhough they officially should be at 26 degrees celcius. As […]

Totally forgot my Monday Rant

Tuesday, June 14th, 2005

I have been so focused on making the design of this blog more acceptable that I actually forgot to complain and wine about anything. I should more often be focused, I guess. Anyway, although not 100% finished we are getting there.
To get back to some more substantial content I will do the “blogger” […]

Dutch Prefer China over Holland

Monday, April 18th, 2005

Now and then some amazing survey results surface. A Dutch Psychological Market Research Company needed some attention and researched how Dutch people view China. Pretty smart.
