Q: Anything interesting happen today? Yesterday? Ever?

I've got something....

Michelle Wie was being interviewed after today's 3rd round of the US Open and asked many questions.  

CCTV 107 allowed this interview to go to air in English, with only minimal Chinese translation.  That is until the last question when she was asked how she felt to be going into the last round of the US Open tied for the lead and she replied she felt fantastic, and so so proud to be an American.  

At that juncture the Chinese overtalk went into overdrive and there was no reference to at all to 'Mei Guo'.  I can't understand Chinese but it was obvious they'd changed the subject so that hopefully, from their points of view, no Chinese watching in China would digest the fact Michelle Wie was proud to be an American.

For me it was laugh out loud funny.

 

So, anything interesting where you hang out?  How are your Chinese contacts reacting to the new 'bullish' China?

I've actually had a friend remark on the problem for academia that Google Translate has been blocked. 

 

Your TV thing. Funny, but also sad.

I was just reading about Chinese food scandals after my dried chicken dog treats were banned. There isn't any shortages of scandals and people do go to jail, but how do they come up with these things,, soya sauce made from hair? Walmart was selling 5 spice donkey meat that was really ground fox meat. What surprised me was that people will eat things that taste like ass.

Yes, Chinese have hard time to understand that just because someone look Chinese or has Chinese roots doesn't mean that they consider themselves as Zhongguoren. Someone whose family emigrated to America decades ago, who never lived in China and can't speak Chinese has no reason to feel Chinese or to be proud of China. I guess it's because Chinese don't live in a multi-ethnic society and still think that race is linked to nationality.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
