Forums > Living in Kunming > Dragon's breath

I would like to start a thread on Chinese breath. Bad breath, that is. I have literally had to get off the bus on occasion, because it is just that horrific. I'm sorry if I offend any Chinese, particularly my Chinese wife, but bad hygiene is offensive to me generally. Also, I suppose that dragon's breath can apply to all Asians, not just Chinese, although I'm not sure. I would appreciate it, if any Chinese would like to comment. I also think that better dental care for all Chinese has tremendous potential.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Hip hop music

HH is poetry with a downbeat. I'm not sure it even qualifies as music. There is no music theory training that I can see. The fact is that popular music, if not all modern music, is losing its musicality. If you look back, you'll notice this progression in the nature of music has been going on ever since the first record was published somewhere early 20th century. I suppose if people have heard it, you don't have to work so hard, but if they haven't, you have to work your ass off for them to appreciate it.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Other cities have sites like "GoKunming"?

Gokunming is the best expat website in China and one of the best websites on the planet. It is focused, open-minded, easy to use, and doesn't put up with over the top advertising. As with any business, it is always about its people, but I also think you can take this concept and apply it to any expat group in China and beyond.

Geezer: Alien has been around, and you haven't, clearly. Perhaps you should listen, and maybe learn something.

ASB: Either you are a white, rich, American or you are from Russia, or maybe you just watch too much American TV. Spare me, and all Americans for that matter. We don't use Russia as a benchmark for anything, except perhaps chaos.

'Fresh Air' also refers to a NPR radio series that focuses on liberal politics and women's issues. I'm almost certain she is referring to something like that. It may also refer to one's first significant travel to a different culture and the feeling one gets when one realizes that some cultures offer benefits that one might not have thought existed. Finally, this woman is a kid, and any political hyper-sensitivity is unnecessary, uncalled for, and pathetically naive. I don't care who said it.

One more thing. The Chinese usually drive relatively slowly. This one aspect of their driving culture is the key to survival on the road in any culture. It makes bad decisions avoid becoming fatal ones.

I don't like the Hollywood happy ending to this article. Road rage is a serious problem.

Rule number one here in China is everyone in front of you has the right of way. I don't care who it is whether it be an aggressive mother shoving people out of the way with her baby stroller or an 18-wheeler pulling out into ongoing traffic with horn at full tilt. Number two is if it weren't for cars, the taxes on cars, and the aholes that pay gas taxes to drive them, there wouldn't be the roads for us to get upset with them in the first place. Finally, I have seen many fights between cars and motorcycles. In my lifetime, the car has won every single battle. Don't push it.
