How’d We Lost Our Freedom of Journalism

Double-clicking the shortcut icon of news.163.com, I started my day of all in all work. This piece of news, for sure, makes today a normal. Obviously, being indifferent to human rights and stuporous to basic freedom are the elementary parts of Chinese daily life.

It’s about a story of state-owned newspaper Guilin Daily in Guangxi Province, Southern China. It exposed some widely-known facts of fraud by the local tourist guide with 9 cases to demostrate them. It also quoted some complaint letters of tourists from Yunnan and Hubei Province.

It seems to be absolutely okay, if not, until the local government interferes with claiming that this un-suited report brought a terribly bad reputation to the torism of Guilin city. Thus, they, namely the government, demand a reclaim to the piece of news and an apology from the reporter. Also, some personnels whom employed as guides or so are keeping on visiting the relating officials to require some explaination and clarification.

The result? Hmm… the reporter as well as the newspaper declared in their 7th page yesterday saying that “we, as our report was indeed un-suited and badly reputed the local torism fame, so as it is, apologise publicly.” Cheers.

Planning to do

Maybe one of my friend was right when she cited that I’m not kind of guy who could stick on one specific job for a long time. I intend to change careers frequently, without thinking much more than freshness. Others could say that I am abnormal or whatever out of it, but I am.

I’m tired of the manager position with pretending to be busy in front of my boss and I am sick of it. I hate being working in a family enterprise since which I need to follow the requests from those stupid offspring of my boss. I’m working for you does not qualify that I work for your damn holy daughter too! Can you dig this?! Hmm.. guess I need to take a rest.

I can read some books in the mean time, money’s not a big deal right now. I need to improve my English actually, I still encounter new vocabs sometimes, and it embarrasses me, a lot.

The necklace would reach me soon, probably in one or two days and I get my jade Buddha sent by my girlfriend. What all I care about is my girlfriend, nothing else. Simple is good, right?

Simple is good.

The Overlook of the Chinese Yuan’s Appreciate

Oh, no, don’t look at the title and think it’s a overhaul essay about the Chinese economy and don’t treat it as a solemn article either. I’m just sick of the inflation rate of all the everyday stuff. A levi’s jeans for example, $14.99 during the sales in a certain US city, and 700 plus RMB in a Chinese fashion store. The appreciate? I can’t see it. A pair of NIKE flip-flop, 10 bucks around in US and 140+ RMB in China. Uhhmm.. of course you can accuse the taxation, but the thing is do we have to pay so much more to enjoy the exactly same thing?

Well, it is illogical of this post, hmm, I just wanna write it.

What About Your English?

I talked with Znarl, the person in charge of Ubuntu Mirror, this afternoon. He praised me as my English’s good. I was kind of stuck and confused at that moment, since I’d never dreamed that my English could somehow be qualified as “good”.

It reminded me my QET test, hardly to believe that I failed all of them and I did! I hate English, especially the grammar, I can’t handle it. I feel difficult to compose an argument article, and I…blah blah blah. See? I can’t even make this post a little bit longer! Darn me, darn my English!

More and More Chinese

I found myself being more and more Chinese by staying within the nation for one plus year. I am refering the habits that I profoundly nurtured. I now have to take a siesta after lunch, doesn’t it say something?

Well, of course I AM Chinese, I am just enjoying the way of being it, hehe.

Shit!

What you say about this?! I so envy him, coz I stay in Hebei Province of China for 23 years, and I’ve never been to the infamous Summer Palace! Maybe it’s time for me to think about it.
