Q: What do you like most about China or Chinese people?

Pet peeves, pet schmeeves.  There's a million of them.  Let's flip this around.

 

What do you like the most about China or Chinese people?*

 

First, there's the . . . ah . . . ah . . . ah . . . .

 

Okay, your turn.

 

* Let's overlook any racist undertones, and that this question has been asked before in one form or another.  Different time.  Different members.  Different experiences.  Different perspectives.

The freedom.

 

You know what I mean. Riding your bike on the pavement, ignoring traffic lights and using your horn as a solve all magical tool. That’s great fun.

 

Next is not waiting in line. No matter how busy the shop is, I can walk in, point to the pack of smokes I want, and nobody complains.

 

The contact sport of getting on busses and metros. If I am in the mood, I enjoy it. Elbows out, plan the path of least reistance as the bus arrives. Bonus points for blocking people from pushing pregnant woman out of the way. Oh yes. That can be fun. Toppling grannies to get to the door first to be a gentleman to a pregnant woman.

 

I also like the freedom to be able to drink a beer outside a shop without a jobsworth telling me it’s illegal.

 

I like the dancing aunties. And the men sitting playing cards around tables.

 

And I like the kid orientated culture. The whole family thing with kids at the center.

 

I like being able to ride a woman’s bike or use a pink umbrella without being laughed at.

Chinese hospitality has to come on top - no matter where you go (excluding the metropolitan bits of first tier cities) you will always find someone ready to wine and dine you.

 

State-of-the-art infrastructure - with the most dense high-speed railway network in the world and with train stations as big as airports Chinese infrastructure makes most European capitals feel like a provincial experience in that respect.

Language, history, culture, cuisine - say what you what about mainstream pop culture in China, but if you scratch the surface you will find a rather colourful rock scene that has been steadily growing since the 80s, a peculiar hip hop culture that has flourished in provincial capitals such as Wuhan or Chengdu - it never ceases to amaze me how many long-term expats are disconnected from local culture. Make the effort, learn the local lingo and it will pay huge dividends (if not financially at least in personal satisfaction and self-realisation!).

Prominent Hong Kong Activist Joshua Wong Arrested For Breaking 'National Security' Law

Thu, 09/24/2020 - 12:15

 

In the latest Hong Kong crackdown on a major dissident figure over actions dating back to the 2019 pro-democracy protests, Hong Kong student-protest leader Joshua Wong has been arrested again on Thursday in what he says is the third case against him related to his activism.

The Associated Press reports that Wong was arrested when he went to check in at Hong Kong's Central Police Station in keeping with his bail requirements.

Wong and his team broke the news in a tweet sent after he left the police station on bail once again. As the tweet states, the charges under the new national security law pertain to an Oct. 5 "unauthorized assembly." Wong is also accused of violating HK Chief Executive Carrie Lam's anti-mask order.

Wong gained international notoriety for his work as a leader of the 2014 Umbrella Movement. However, he took a mostly low-key role in the leaderless pro-democracy demonstrations that carried on for the latter half of last year.

Wong rose to prominence as a student leader during the 2014 Umbrella Movement protests for universal suffrage, and is among a growing number of activists being charged for various relatively minor offenses since Beijing imposed a sweeping national security law on the territory that has severely restricted political speech.

He played a low-key role in mostly leaderless and sometimes violent anti-government protests last year that led to Beijing imposing the security law. However, with Beijing's encouragement, Hong Kong authorities have been pursuing charges against major opposition figures for illegal assembly and other minor infractions in what some call a campaign to harass and intimidate.

Wong's arrest follows the latest arrest of Hong Kong media mogul Jimmy Lai, whose company, Next Digital, runs one of HK's largest newspapers, which has taken a firmly independent, pro-democracy line.

 

Both Wong and Lai have vowed to resist the measures taken under the new national security law, which gives authorities broad latitude to punish anyone for pro-democracy speech, which Beijing views as "terroristic" and "seccessionist" rhetoric, encouraged by foreign agitators.

https://news.yahoo.com/thousands-mosques-xinjiang-demolished-recent-0705...

 

Around 16,000 mosques in Xinjiang had been destroyed or damaged, according to a Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), with most of the destruction taking place in the last three years

More

Chinese authorities have demolished thousands of mosques in Xinjiang, an Australian think tank said Friday, in the latest report of widespread human rights abuses in the restive region.

Rights groups say more than one million Uighurs and other mostly Muslim Turkic-speaking people have been incarcerated in camps across the northwestern territory, with residents pressured to give up traditional and religious activities.

Around 16,000 mosques had been destroyed or damaged, according to an Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI) report based on satellite imagery documenting hundreds of sacred sites and statistical modelling.

Most of the destruction had taken place in the last three years and an estimated 8,500 mosques had been completely destroyed, the report said, with more damage outside the urban centres of Urumqi and Kashgar. 

 

Many mosques that escaped demolition had their domes and minarets removed, according to the research, which estimated fewer than 15,500 intact and damaged mosques were left standing around Xinjiang.

If correct, it would be the lowest number of Muslim houses of worship in the region since the decade of national upheaval sparked by the Cultural Revolution in the 1960s.

By contrast, none of the Christian churches and Buddhist temples in Xinjiang that were studied by the think tank had been damaged or destroyed.

ASPI also said nearly a third of major Islamic sacred sites in Xinjiang -- including shrines, cemeteries and pilgrimage routes -- had been razed.

An AFP investigation last year found dozens of cemeteries had been destroyed in the region, leaving human remains and bricks from broken tombs scattered across the land.

China has insisted that residents of Xinjiang enjoy full religious freedom.

Asked about the research on Friday, China's foreign ministry said the research institute had "no academic credibility" and was producing "anti-China reports and anti-China lies".

Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said there were about 24,000 mosques in the region.

"Xinjiang's total number of mosques is more than ten times the number in the US, and the average number of mosques per Muslim person is higher than in some Muslim countries," Wang told a regular press briefing.

Friday's report comes a day after ASPI said it had identified a network of detention centres in the region much larger than previous estimates.

Beijing has said its network of camps are vocational training centres, which are necessary for countering poverty and anti-extremism.

COVID Whistleblower's Mother Reportedly Arrested In China

    "Retribution..."

     

     

    The mother of Dr. Li-Meng Yan, a Chinese MD/PhD virologist who fled China and published evidence that COVID-19 was created in a lab, says that the Chinese Communist Party has arrested her mother.

    "According to Mr. Miles Guo, the CCP arrested Dr. Limeng Yan’s mother in mainland China, allegedly as a retribution on Dr. Yan, the Hong Kong virologist, Chinese Whistleblower and CCP COVID-cover-up debunker," reports gnews.org - which has been described as "Guo's media outlet."

    Guo made the comments during an appearance alongside former Trump strategist Steve Bannon on an episode of "War Room Pandemic."

    Last month, Yan appeared on Fox News, where she told host Tucker Carlson that COVID-19 is a "Frankenstein" virus designed to target humans, and that it was intentionally released.

     

    "It could never come from nature," she Yan - who worked with coronavirus at the University of Hong Kong

     

    "There is evidence left in the genome" - which Yan detailed in a 26-page scientific paper co-written with three other Chinese scientists. "They don't want people to know this truth. Also, that's why I get suspended [from Twitter], I get suppression. I am the target that the Chinese Communist Party wants disappeared."

     

    When Carlson asked her why she believes the virus made it's way out of the Wuhan lab, Dr. Yan said "I worked in the WHO reference lab, which is the top coronavirus lab in the world at the university of Hong Kong. And the things I got deeply into such investigation in secret from the early beginning of this outbreak - I had my intelligence through my network in China, involved in the hospitals, institutes and also government."

     

    "Together with my experience, I can tell you - this is created in a lab."

     

    Dr. Yan fled Hong Kong on April 28 on a Cathay Pacific flight to the United States. She believes her life is in danger, and that she can never go back home.

    I enjoyed how welcoming and genuine people always were to me. I see a lot of insults and random stereotypical/borderline racist comments on this thread, but if you live in a different culture and don't expect there to be different ways of doing things.... Well, that's on you really.

    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
