...here go the Chinese again!! ...   China   The Chinese never fail to blow me away .... Last Saturday, in Shaanxi province, 1,700 students took their exams. The staff at Yichuan Middle School said that the idea came directly from the students! .... 1,700 desks .... 1,700 pupils .... impeccabily arranged. The students shifted their desks as the sun passed overhead, obviously to ensure they got better light .... Nobody even dared to copy, as it often happens in nearly all parts of Northern Europe ....  C...

People ....

 

We love hearing how right we are .... 

.... but not too keen on letting people in on it ....

Without realizing, that within the exact same moment we grasp the idea, we become a part of it ....

Renzo has guts ....   Bassano Del Grappa, Veneto   I know that the title might come off a bit vulgar, but these were the first words I thought of, when striving around for my viewpoint, straight to black on white ....  Renzo Rosso, the efficacious and spirited founder of Diesel (yes, yes, it is Italian and already 35 years old!!) is one of a kind and Italy should be immensely proud of his triumphs .... I understand from a recent survey, that many Italian Companies have been sold and are no longer...

...sleepless nights ....   I am a Mother and I am undoubtedly besotted by it!! .... I cherish the butterfly kisses, tickling their velvety cheeks with the flitter flutters of my eyelashes .... The invaluable cuddles, caresses, and our never-ending story "good night" rituals .... I treasure their "seldom" tantrums and meltdowns. They, at times, come out with the most hilarious comments. Their vision is different than what "we" actually see .... You should treasure their sleepless nights (although, I must be hone...

Sexist Salvo ....   The Indonesian sports company, Salvo, has apologized for their ridiculous sexist shirt label .... The labels were found on shirts for the Indonesian Super League Team Pusamania Borneo .... They apologized, via Twitter explaining, "The message is simply, instead of washing it in the wrong way, you might as well give it to a lady because they are more capable." .... Of course, of course .... What were they thinking?! ....   HP...

Hong Kong Flats in the US ....   New York, United States   How original!! A brilliant idea .... Ammr Vandal, is the architect behind this New York development.

These are his memories of life in the Ma On Sham district here in Hong Kong .... which is helping to influence New York's tentative first step, into the world of Hong Kong-style of mi...

In a hospital, Wang Zhihua chews food in his mouth and then passes it to his daughter, who is unable to chew her own food, due to a serious illness ....

Please, now, if you have the courage, tell me some of "your problems" ....

Lawyers here in Hong Kong have been receiving calls, (morning, noon and night!!) after a United Kingdom Court allowed Kathleen Wyatt to seek cash from Dale Vince .... Wyatt launched legal action in 2011, asking for approx...

Dangerous for pedestrians and not.... Hong Kong, China   While reading this "screaming headline" in the South China Morning Post this morning, I was not caught off guard.....because I live here, but for other Americans and not, it might come as a shock .... "Van driver fined HK$ 4,500 over death of British cyclist but cleared of dangerous driving" .... So we now understand that a cyclist's life is worth no more than 500 euro .... Banker Colin Robertson was only 39 years old when a 55 year old van driver, Lam Wing-sang, c...
