    Gotta love China! When I go home or leave to travel I miss people staring at me and narrating my life for me. It is a great place to be to boost your self-esteem! Haha…I am convinced that is why 90% of foreigners live here. Living a “normal” life in any other country including their own would be a hell of a lot harder! Very unattractive foreigners here thinking they are HOT because they have blonde hair and blue eyes! Everything else is off, but they are still told how gorgeous they are! Can be a good thing, right?

    Asia in general is well comical…grown men photographing Hello Kitty displays with $8,000 lens at a Hong Kong mall! Grown men pulling out Winnie-the-Pooh tissue packets to take a shit. Sexy. Men with full out perms. Sexy. Wearing a three piece suit to mow the lawn. Amazing houses equipped with imported furniture and appliances, but refusal to heat the place. Insisting on driving a few blocks to show you own a car. Waiting to get in an elevator to light a cigarette. Frantically pushing the close door button when clearly seeing people trying to get on the elevator. The giggling. Insisting a bloody mary is made with granadine syrup like they make at the Chinese clubs. Insisting a drink isn’t good unless it is served in a “fancy” glass with a twisty straw in the shape of a heart…or like they do in the movies.

    I have two tiny pugs who make my neighbors scream for their lives on a daily basis! I try to explain to them that they are more scared of them. Women and men have gone running in pure horror at the sight of them. Pugs don’t even have proper jaws to bite.

    Oh, I LOVE the proud grandparents out in their pj’s with a VERY bundled up grandchild explaining to the kid about the foreigners drinking coffee! Poor thing can’t even put down their arms, but has an air crack in the back. I would think that would make one a bit cold???

    Our neighbors always ask us how many times a week we wash our pugs????

    I love China for all of its quirkiness! Without it, it would be just a bunch of pretty drab cities. Plus, it gives expats so much to talk about. Nobody can argue it is a comical place! There are far worse places….and I can tell you those later!

    skipping lines in shops because they don’t have any patience, and then walking ridiculously slow once outside….

    trying to find logic in china is like trying to find meat in your niu rou chao fan

    People staring doesn’t bother me, but when they start coming up to pose by me & my daughter while their friends take pictures that gets a little weird. Worse yet they usually escalate to trying to pick her up which she wants no part of.

    I find it humorous that taxi drivers won’t understand me when I say our street name, but then my wife (who is Asian but still doesn’t speak Chinese) will say the exact same thing & they understand with no problem.

    Another thing that cracks me up (even though it’s really kind of a good idea) is the extra sleeves that people wear over their sleeves. Every time I see it I think “Yo Dawg, I heard you like sleeves…”

    Well the premise of the sleeve thing in Korea is so that our arms are not tanning while you drive.. Here, it’s because you dont want dirty sleeves for your clothes say if you were a butcher…

    Really? I thought it was to keep the cool air from going up your sleeves. I never saw it here until it got cold.

    1) Find better use of time.

    2) Find another website to post jargon that no one will read.
