illannoyin: "I'd rather cry in the back of my husband's Mercedes than smile on the back of his bicycle." -Chinese female proverb
illannoyin: Best reality show idea ever.'Joe Millionaire China'. Set up a guy as a Chinese millionaire in a swanky Beijing apartment, car, the works. Put the word out to China's gold diggers and have them "date" for a couple of weeks. Then, watch the fireworks when he breaks up with them. I bet those ladies would do some really entertaining things to try and hold on to the lifestyle.
phaseolus: Resident Muslim: dittybopper: Resident Muslim: Including one Chinese tour guide who when asked about the situation went off on a litany of entitlement that ended with "he's got to show me the money to get the honey."Also, "No tea, no talk".You got the tea scam?For those of you interested in going to China some day, or considering, here is how the tea scam goes down:A lady or two approach you, very friendly, if the "we're just looking for a good time" approach doesn't hook you, they go for the "we're students and it would be great if we could practice with you"They then take you to a tea house or a bar where they order drinks that you later find out cost ridiculous amounts of money. This includes rare and delicate teas that cost a fortune.Hence tea scam.I only went to China once, and all I got was "caaaaanYOOOOOOUhellllpmeeeeeI'mmmmVERRRRRRyyyyyHUNNNNNNNgryyy". Over and over and over.And a few "Hello? Hello? Genuine Lolex"es and one very pushy Buddhist who wouldn't take less than 100RMB in return for something that looked like a Buddha Pokemon card.
