Q: What are some common foreign role models Chinese have?

I always find it very interesting when Chinese talk about how great XYZ is in whatever country. A lot of the time they're so confident and enthusiastic you'd think that person was almost Chinese. I often end up getting arguments with them. Now I just nod and say smile.

I asked a good Chinese friend, and he said, "What is a role-model?" I explained the concept, and he said, "Oh, my mother and father." I told him, "no, a foreign role-model," and he said, "Your mother and father!"

 

I gave up.

Deng Wenge (邓文革), the wife of Rupert Murdoch.  You mention her name to any Chinese woman and they are likely to instantly obtain a look of both awe and envy.

  Bill Gates is a popular one. I asked a class who their role models was once and one girl said "Pele, the Brazilian Flasher." I took a gamble and corrected her that he was probably known as the Brazilian Flash, a flasher being more commonly known as a man who exposes himself to women on subways. Another young boy of only 11 told the class that his role model was Adolf Hitler. I am a responsible teacher though and knew that i'd be doing my students a disservice if I allowed such a statement to pass without question or judgement, so I punched him squarely in the face.

Pretty much anyone who has excelled in sport (Pele), pop music (Michael Jackson), or business (Steve Jobs).

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
