Hot on Weibo: 多地陷十面”霾“伏 Hazardous air pollution in China

近日,一条深褐色的巨大污染带斜穿1/3的国土,从北京、天津到石家庄,从郑州、南通到贵阳,空气污染指数纷纷爆表,北京城区PM2.5值一度逼近1000,雾霾笼罩。

Hot on Weibo: 上海地铁无裤日 No Pants Subway Ride in Shanghai

1月13号,上海地铁里有不少人不穿长裤,只穿一条内裤,同时挤上同一班地铁,让身边市民目瞪口呆,参与者中几乎都是老外。

据悉这是所谓“不穿裤子搭地铁日”,是美国民间组织2002年发起的活动,如今已变成全球60多个城市的年度性活动。上海今年成为新加入的城市。

但是我真的看不懂,你会支持这样的活动吗?会参与吗?

Hot on Weibo: 保底归集吓哭已婚男 New bank service scares husbands

中国有“男主外,女主内”的传统,所以很多家庭老公的工资都是上缴给老婆统一管理。但是,很多老公都会少报一点工资,偷藏一点私房钱

现在银行竟然有一种叫“保底归集”的功能:只需要设置一个保底金额,如1000元,银行将每天查询老公的账户余额,只要大于1000元,就会把多出的部分自动转账给老婆。

  • 银行君,你的节操呢?
  • 已婚男士潸然泪下

How I started speaking Mandarin in public

I'd like to share the story of the day I realized people could understand my 普通话 pǔ tōng huà.

 

For years I've been interested in Mandarin. The language is ancient, unique and the characters themselves intricate and beautiful. I've learned by myself, learned from both Chinese friends and Chinese-speaking colleagues at work. I delight in picking up…

Hot on Weibo: 连上八天班 Working 8 days in a row

中国元旦的法定假期只有1天,但是今年国家公布的放假办法是放3天,把后面的周六和周日拉到前面来一起放。所以元旦后,大家要连续上8天班,网友纷纷在微博吐槽好崩溃。

  • “放假一时爽,连班痛一生 ”
  • “连上八天就叫苦?你们这群战斗力只有5的啊…”
  • “爷爷,能讲讲导致人类灭亡的那场大灾变吗?” “唉,这要从2012年年末说起,先是滔天洪水,然后是突来的严寒,还有四处肆虐的僵尸。” “难怪人类灭绝了啊!” “不,人类从这些灾难中顽强地挺了过来,开始庆祝新生后的第一个新年,可是新年过后,他们发现要连上八天班,然后...唉,我说不下去了..”

Dance instruction in English and Chinese

There are hundreds of dance demo / instruction dance videos on Youtube by a dance instructor named Jenny or LineDanceDallas from either Taiwan on some videos or Plano Texas on other videos. 

She speaks perfect English and does not seem to have a Texan accent.  Native Chinese will have to judge her Chinese speaking.  She covers many types of dances that can be done without a partner such as Polkas, Reels, Rumbas, country and western line dances, etc.  Here are a few…

Chinese Mafia/Werewolves “狐狸精”

大家好!Hi everyone!  

Some of you may already be familiar with the Russian party game "Mafia" (also known as "Werewolves").  I've given the game a bit of a Chinese makeover (based more-so on "Werewolves" than the original, because it's more fun in my opinion!).

Find out about the original game here.

In the original "Werewolves" (or at least in the version my friends and I play), there are a range…
