It is truly exciting to be a part of all of this, living here in Chengdu! It seems, that in the Southwest, property developers are looking outside the inner city to make their big bucks, and with new subway route(s) to outside the third ring road, these spots and landmarks (as mentioned in the article) will be accessible.... TO ALL!!!!
Thanks, but just one question....
Are they hiring????
oh wow! Never mind. I just saw the link for "Tickets". My bad.
I apologize. I didn't see the link first time reading it, my eyes aren't too sharp. Thanks for letting me know. It would have helped though to include slightly more information concerning ticket sales, recommendations on how to go about that, etc.
Could anyone please comment on where to buy tickets, or if they are already sold out? The writer forgets that this is a lifestyle magazine and resource!
Well, I have been a foreigner living in Chengdu now for quite some days, and I believe, like is said in the article, most of the norms do not exist to the extent they did years ago. If you a foreigner eating with Chinese people in the first place, I would tend to think they are open-minded, young, and non-traditionalists who do not follow all the out-dated/ traditional societal rules, especially in terms of dinner table manners. A few things left out though (In my personal experiences here in China):
1. Chinese women, I have found, will typically be hesitant to sit on a chair without wiping it off first. If you are dating a Chinese girl, make sure to wipe off the chairs first (This is just in my personal experience).
2. Smoking is okay anywhere and everywhere at the dinner table. It is a must to offer guests your cigarettes. If your teacher or an elder, a potential mother/ father-in-law, etc. is at the dinner table, offer them your cigarettes!!!!!!!!!! On special occasions, do not go cheap on the cigarettes.
3. When drinking Bai Jiu (白酒), do not eat rice. Wait until you are finished drinking the alcohol, and then eat rice (米饭).
This is truly amazing!!!! I remember going to Hong Kong's lively bar scene on a Saturday night, and after thinking that at Hong Kong is too good to be true already, I found myself taking a 10 RMB night bus back to my hostel. For Chengdu to have this type of after-hours transportation system means it is truly a gem on the Mainland!!!! Thanks for the update Go CHENGDOO!!!!
Only a 150 RMB fine!!!!!!!!!!!
This makes me a little sick to my stomach... It is one thing that Chengdu driver's and bicycle riders hesitate to move when a blaring ambulance comes roaring down the road, but what can one expect? Those who work in the field of health, and more specifically for the Health Bureau, should be the ones setting an example that others can follow! In the US, a heavy fine will be imposed on you if you are caught cutting off an ambulance and/ or not moving out of the way for one with it's sirens blaring.
All around good article
