Looking Back on China (8): Food Unsafety

In the past, when I asked my father whether he wanted to immigrate to another country, he refused without any hesitation. Now, he might hesitate due to a new concern – food.

Looking Back on China (7): Defense for One Child Policy

Exactly as same as their expectation, my answer is “no.” After that, without any exception, long conversations about China’s One-Child Policy …

Looking Back on China (6): People’s Republic of Copying

I miss home so desperately, every time I cannot download songs or movies free of charge in America.

Looking Back on China (3): A Fancy Chinese Dream

After Jiang Zemin’s “Three Representatives” and Hu Jintao’s “Harmonious Society,”  now Chinese overburdened high school students have one more theory to learn by rote. “Chinese Dream,” repeatedly emphasized by China’s new president Xi Jinping, is seemingly more catchy and captivating.

“No matter if it is a white cat or a black cat, as long as it can catch mice, it is a good cat.”  It was probably the most influential quote of Deng Xiaoping, the Chief Architect of Chinese Reform and Opening, who further interpreted that “Do not restrict yourself from the difference between Socialism …
