Living in Zhongshan we can all be forgiven for thinking China is a great place to live for its beauty, environment, friendly people, economy but most importantly because it is inexpensive but did you know we are surrounded by some of the most expensive cities in the world to live for expats. Shenzhen moved from 17th to 14th and Guangzhou from 24th to 15th. China now has three cities in the top 10 and nine cities in the top 30.…Continue 继续

Why had it become so difficult to get a taxi on these rainy days? Well, some taxi drivers in Zhongshan took a break from June 23 to 25! Obviously, the upcoming taxi fare hike was not cheering them up, given the oversupply, weak demand and the little surcharge for empty return and all.

Teacher Len thought that the boys had a lack of respect in their behavior towards teachers and parents. It had become so bad, in his mind, that he ran a class called "Are the girls the future of China?' His last blog would suggest that maybe we were not. However the growing violence seen in Chinese youth shows that the raising of the boys as Little Emperors Xiǎo huángdì 小皇帝, as he called them, is not working.…Continue 继续

One of the saddest things I saw whilst teaching in China was the treatment of a single girl by the rest of her female classmates and to a lesser extent the males in the class. Not just once but every year there was 1 girl of the 300 in the year that was the outcast.
It would always…Continue 继续

Imagine sleeping in a bed that shakes every 20 minutes. The hotel we stayed in last night was right next to the train tracks. Every 20 to 30 minutes a train went past and our hotel room shook. It kept me awake all night. This was the worst night ever on this trip.
I remember one night a few years ago in…
"Be prepared" Len would say to us before the exam and then tell us of a group called the boy scouts "Dib Dib Dob Dob" he would continue and hold two joined fingers up. I'm not sure what it meant but was funny. He would tell us that before an exam we should make sure we had everything together and go through a list; Pens, rulers, pencils erasers, watch, water, math tools, mobile phone "Hello teacher what's the answer to Question five?"…Continue 继续

So I'm back Downunder and it seems everything has changed. Whilst last night I recieved a message from Timo telling me he was melting into the pavement, I was sitting here with pajamas, cowboy underwear, hoodie, gloves, and two pairs of socks and I realized today was the first day of winter. The first day of winter in Australia starts beard season. Being just under where the Ozone layer fell apart, Melanoma…Continue 继续
